London collective Real Gold have just dropped their first release in over a year, a T-shirt and print package inspired by the legendary 1988 LP, “Don’t Forget The Struggle, Don’t Forget The Streets” by New York Hardcore band Warzone.
As a longtime fan of hardcore and the NY scene this is a pretty exciting release for me, as anyone who knows the legend of the Lower East Side, NY Skinheads and Raymond ‘Raybeez’ Barbieri will understand. The T-shirt features the “Don’t Forget The Struggle…” LP artwork, updated with the use of the Union Flag and “London Crew/Real Gold” text, and the Real Gold logo on the reverse. It comes hand packaged with a photographic print by photographer Kingsley Ifil and individually numbered /200. The pack serves as an ode to British street culture, personal identity and a celebration of what we call home.
