President of New York’s Notorious The Death Squad
The Death Squad (TDS) is one of the most influential graffiti crews in history. The New York graffiti crew favoured the Broadway lines 1, 2 and 5 (Brooklyn to Bronx) 1970s – 1980s. Bombers at heart TDS focused much of their efforts on style rather than just bombing the subways and trains. The crew developed many styles and colour schemes. Pioneering form and structure into graffiti.
Part One TDS (Aliases Fudge 357 & Worm 2) was the president of the Death Squad. The crew managed to stay off the media’s radar but New York’s writers and crews were inspired by the tags and throw ups.
We met Part One TDS some years back on his first trip to London promoting his then new book. You can still purchase the book today from Bombing Science. The old school writer is still throwing up today and creating limited edition pieces for purchase byway of his Instagram profile.
