Vintage Wide Awake “Schism Records” Long Sleeve Shirt
Wide Awake was a straight edge hardcore band from Connecticut founded in 1986. They released a demo, a 7" entitled C.T. Hardcore on Schism Records, and were featured on the X Marks the Spot compilation released on Smorgasbord Records. They released a live The End 7" and a discography record on Smorgasbord after they broke up in 1991. Wide Awake played a style of hardcore heavily influenced by Youth Of Today and Bold, straight edge hardcore pulling from USHC topped off with a positive message. They were regulars at The Anthrax. This four-sided long sleeve shirt, a mid 2000s reprint of the classic Schism design with discoloration around the collar and storage spots around the cuff, features a Skiz pocket and sleeve print, a Wide Awake sleeve print, and a picture of Sammy Seigler wearing a Wide Awake shirt behind the drum kit, which was also featured on the cover of the third press of the 7". There's something really cool about putting a picture of your friend wearing your shirt on another shirt. It's one simple word I'm sure you've all heard... it's called friendship.
