Other »  [SOLVED] Paul Dianno´s shirt in 1980...?
Hi guys! I´ve been poundering this for ages and still haven´t found out... In old Iron Maiden pictures from 1980, Paul Dianno is wearing a shirt with sharp-lettered logo, printed white on black shirt,- but I haven´t seen any pics where it´s shown properly. The only letters I´ve seen are "...tkit.." or "...rkirc..." or something similiar, in the middle of the name. What the heck is it he´s wearing?! It looks like someone´s head underneath the logo... There are some pictures of him wearing it on 1998 cd re-master of debut... Any ideas?

Cheers, Mikel

Yes, that´s the one!!! There are 3 to 5 pictures where he´s wearing it, but it´s always only partly visible...
I wonder what it says...

Yeah it does, "....KITE..." or "....KITO....", could also be an "R" instead of a "T"

Or chief inspector Clouseau ?

I've never heard them, but there was a NWOBHM band called SKITZOFRENIK. Maybe he's wearing one of their shirts?

This is going to drive me totally crazy. Should never have looked at this thread. It could even be not a "K" at all, but an "I" then a "C"? so maybe "..icit..". But it does look a lot like a K. Freakin impossible

Coño.... (hmm) what comes after the "K" could be an "N" as a linguistics expert, i'd say the only viable word with what there is in the picture would be "SKIN" i'd try looking hardcore and punk bands called skin-something, maybe some awful typical punk name such as "foreskin", since he was a big punk fan back then, i think he got replaced because he sounded too punky (tell me if i'm wrong) looks tough.

Edit: sorry saw only one picture, could be an "R" after the "I" too.

I found it, and i actually found music of them on you tube, the sound quality is very bad so turn your speakers all the way up so you can actually hear something, here's the link:

Indeed it is. I hung out with the band after one gig and I still have some promo stickers that feature the exact logo and font that's on Paul's shirt.
