Years in the making, 048 is the natural Numero appeal to the long-hair hesher high schooler inside all of us to obey our most burnt-out, satan-hailing inclinations. No Numero release in history will be more complimentary to a 12-sided die, cheap shitty beer,  shaggy hair, incense, comic books, fantasy paperbacks, and black light posters.

We weren’t that far off.

Buried amidst all the maps and dungeons was Soden’s high school Peechee brand folder. Obsessed with the classic rock sounds pouring out of KOME and the early days of MTV, Soden created this beautiful pastiche of real and fake band logos:

band-names-001-1While ours is more of a binder soaked in blue Bic brand ink look, we instructed him to recreate that folder as best he could. Hold the results in your hands on March 4th, or purchase a copy from our website now.
