Lined metal roller skate box with stickers, 39 by 32 by 16 cm. Scratches and scuffs to the paint; with chips, general wear, and some peeling of the stickers. This unique item belonged to a young punk from the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. It was a repurposed roller skate box, purchased from a thrift shop, and used to store cassette tapes. Spray painted black, with electrical tape wrapping the handle, some of the stickers include West Michigan hardcore and industrial/experimental bands like Born Without a Face, The Bodeans, Blind Alley, Slaughter House, The Fury, Grey Tissue, Blight, and Rights of the Accused, and national (and international) acts like Crass, Coil, Negativland, Pariah, Channel 3, Suicidal Tendencies, Crime, G.B.H., the Clash, and Fang. There are also stickers from the fanzines Depression, Icky Pop and T42, Wax Trax Records, Peavy amps, and Saudi Arabia/Desert Storm. The case was in use from early 1983 until early 1992, while the owner was involved in the Michigan hardcore and industrial scene. Later, he joined the U.S. Army and served in the first Gulf War (hence the Saudi stickers). The owner published Icky Pop zine and was a member of two bands named on the box. More details about the owner will accompany the case.
