PHILLY GRAFFITI 1982

Courtesy of ICONJOHN, the legendary VISIONS tv show graffiti clip. Narrated by the great Vernon Odom. Often spoken of by many , only seen by a few, relentlessly pursued by Dan Murphy (who actually spoke to Vernon's people and learned they dumped their copy decades ago), this is the raw. Incomplete, but its the rosetta stone of this (philly) thing of ours. whoever styled these guys in the clip I think went on to invent Williamsburg in the 90's. All of the guys pictured are alive and well. wow, the post-heroin, pre-crack era built 'em to last. ICONJOHN got more heat, check his site for more 80's class action.
