Original New Beginning Record Underdog E.P. promo poster
Went to see Underdog play this past Saturday in Asbury Park, New Jersey at the Asbury Lanes. They've been doing two back to back shows at the Asbury Lanes once a year, every year for the past few years now. As always, Underdog sounded great and Richie's voice was just as powerful and on point as ever.
At the end of the night I ran into an old friend named Jon LeVine who went to my high school and graduated about four or five years ahead of me. Jon was one of the original punk / hardcore / straight edge guys in my town, did a fanzine called Faith and his involvement goes back into the early to mid 80's.

At some point around 1988 when Jon was headed off to college, he sold my friend Tony and I and few records and gave us a handful of other things. I remember buying both the Crippled Youth 7" and Underdog 7" from him and probably paying about $5.00 a piece for each. One of the things Jon threw in was this New Beginning Records promo poster for the Underdog 7", which I always thought was awesome and have held on to ever since.
Seeing Underdog on Saturday and then coincidentally running into Jon at the show, who I originally bought the Underdog 7" off of 21 years ago got me thinking about this poster and inspired me to do a little Underdog dedication entry. So here's the poster and here's a few great Underdog pics from none other than DCXX's favorite photographer, Ken Salerno. -Tim DCXX
