Formed in 1976 by Johnny Strike, Frankie Fix, Ron "The Ripper" Greco (ex-Chosen Few/Flamin' Groovies) and Ricky James, Crime took the
U.S. early punk scene by storm with their single “Hot Wire My Heart / Baby You're So Repulsive.” Mingling their rebellious and sexually-charged image (they were most often seen flaunting their vampiric, just-outta-rehab good looks in tight leather, regulation police uniforms, or old-time gangster duds) with their unique blend of intellectual and furious lo-fi rock and roll, Crime ripped post-hippie San Francisco a metaphorical new one. Crime found local refuge at the now legendary Mabuhay Gardens, but became nationally notorious after playing a gig at San Quentin Penitentiary in full police uniforms (of course).
All of the Crime flyers and posters below are originals and came from Johnny Strike's personal collection and are all signed by Johnny.
