Never forget Tony Sly – SBÄM announces charity shirt in memory of No Use For A Name

1 min read

The tragic death of punk rock legend Tony Sly is 8 years ago and the memory of him seems to be unbroken by fans. In cooperation with Tony’s widow Brigitte Sly and his brother Jonathan Sly, Stefan Beham from SBÄM will release an exclusive shirt design on June 15th.

The shirt will be a multicolor print, which will be released in 5 different shirt colors. The design is secret until now, but will be in Stefan’s typical style.

“As a visual artist I loved No Use For A Name’s artwork as much as I loved the music”, says Stefan Beham. “A lot of time has passed since there was new merchandise, which is why I created this shirt with Brigitte and Jon”.

All proceeds from the sale of the T-shirt will be donated to the Tony Sly Music Foundation, which promotes musical education for children. According to the official memorial page for Tony Sly, a combination of music and the creative education of children would have been what the singer and guitarist wanted.

“So let’s keep the memory of Tony and No Use For A Name alive by giving children the opportunity to express themselves through music,” Stefan appeals with the campaign.

The advance sale starts on 15 June.
