On Friday the 13th of Sept, the hardcore community lost one of the most talented artists that has emerged in the scene in over the past ten years. Terry Lovino of Product Of Waste will be missed and remembered by us all for his sheer ability to hold nothing back and speak the cold hard truth. In memorial the following shirt has been designed around the lyrics from one of his last songs on his last recording. Within the words he sends a personal message and request to his brothers in Providence, and to us all. Proceeds from sales will go to the family of Terry who our hearts go out to at this time.
