Episode 064: Serial Killer Clothing w/ Johanna Hackett

Serial Killer Clothing was a clothing company, a skateboard company that basically created the MEME. They designed shirts that had pictures of pop culture icons with one-liners underneath them which completely contradicted what you were seeing. Some examples were the cast of Baywatch with the words ORGY underneath. Another was Pee-Wee Herman with Masturbate under him, and so on.

Bigwig was the band that introduced the clothing line to the Jersey scene because they would have it at their table or be wearing the shirts and other bands like Cooter, Lounge, and Beefcake would soon follow. Serial Killer also put out a compilation with Fearless Records which caught anyone’s eye because of the 2 porn stars making out on the cover.

I got Johanna on the phone for over 2 hours and this is what we chatted about:

  • The Black Flag Church
  • What it was like being in a Female band in the scene
  • Fletcher from Pennywise
  • The BigWig story
  • How Serial Killer started
  • Cooter
  • Meeting Gabe Saporta
  • The Serial Killer Comp
  • Bigwig again
  • Pennywise
  • Matt Serial Killer
  • Annoying Girl Zine
  • And a ton more
