Day: 1739B Shirt: Prince - Lovesexy 1988 Tour Color: Black Brand: Gurney Source: midday shirt change to show some respect to the MN rocker, the purple Prince and his early demise. You gave us great songs and sadly got sucked up into the vortex of 2016 musicians that left this earth too early. Although I get the feeling Prince left this earth a while ago, cause he was on another plane
Day: 1689 Shirt: Sigur Rós – Með Suð Í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust 2008 US Tour Color: Black Brand: [Tagless] Source: realized today that Sigur Rós is coming to the US again….its as close to classical music live i will ever get
Day: 1317 Shirt: Radiohead - Stanley Donwood Cat Drawing Color: Black Brand: Gilden Ultra Cotton Source: (Wed) it’s easy to love or hate Radiohead they are a band that is just so massive it’s easy to write them off if they are too big. But goddamn if they don’t keep making interesting music. Every record is a level above the next. They push it to new limits both musically and in the business of music. So for that alone I commend them.
Day: 1556 Shirt: Kurt Vile and the Violators - A Philly Wedding Color: White / Red Brand: Tultex Source: (10/14) this kinda shirt was the whole reason I started this whole project. When rad people who make art team up with musicians you love the music from it just makes for a great final product. Went and saw @kurtvile last night, great fucking show but his new album is fucking good, so it was much like this shirt. Just a good marriage of the two. Stoked for my man and fellow shirt hoarder @perryshall who did the art for this hoagie of a winner. Great unique design. I can honestly say it’s the first musician sandwich shirt I have ever seen. Perry is a great illustrator and also takes amazing shirtless photos when he is not at home drawing. Good stuff Delete Comment
Day: 1713 Shirt: Car Seat Headrest - Hugs (Reproduction) Color: Red Brand: Jerzees Source: ….every one in a while you hear a new record that you just get stoked on and listen to 20-30 times In a row. A friend tuned me on to this dude and it just reminds me that I feel like some people were set on this earth to write songs, and play music. I believe it is streaming now on the innaNet so go check it out, and thanks to an Internet snafu you buy it early. I wanted to buy a shirt last week but the site only has had smalls forever so I made this one myself. Sorry @notcarseatheadrest I bootlegged your shirt but I did give you money on band camp and ordered the shirt from Matador 😁. If you need more shirts let me know
Day: 1363 Shirt: Black Flag - My War 🔪 (90′s SST Superstore Version) Color: Turquoise Brand: Oneita Source: (yesterday) a wonderful acquisition from @tadkeys from back when SST used to have a store in LA you could go shop in. BUT more importantly today’s post is dedicated to those unique people you meet or just start following on Instagram. Like this guy from Japan named @mywar_yuichiro who has been wearing a different My War shirt since Dec of last year. There is that part of me that appreciates just how much work it takes to do something like this and stick to it. Go check him out its pretty rad. Good job Yuichiro!🎉👍🔪
Day: 1361 Shirt: Sunny Day Real Estate - Thief, Steal Me a Peach Color: Tan Brand: Fruit Of the Loom Heavy Source: (Friday) this was a great 7″ the (almost) debut from Sunny Day..a 7″ that launched a thousand bands and and entire genre of music to follow really. so many good albums followed this 7″ and really launched a whole different way of thinking about “punk.”
Day: 1735 Shirt: NOFX - S&M Airlines Color: Tan Brand: Gildan Source: Saw NOFX last night on the same night that Iron Maiden was in town. kept seeing pics all week long on Instagram of Ed Force One and couldn’t help but think what if NOFX had their own plane called S&M Airlines! yeah right. no way in hell i would fly on that motherfucker, ESPECIALLY if Fat Mike decided he wanted to be a pilot. i mean i am sure he could fly that thing, cause when it comes to taking care of business that man can do it in any state he is in, but that would be one hell of a scary ride.
Day: 1314 Shirt: Descendents - I Don’t Want to Grow Up Color: Black Brand: Power Pro by Oneita Source: At some point i did a trade with a friend and at this point i don’t even remember what it was i traded cause it was a while ago and my memory is dodgy at times. i just remember at the time that i said just take it and send me something in return i trust you. so a little time flies and i get this sweet shirt (and another which ill debut at some point) which i had really wanted. so needless to say i was really psyched not only to get this shirt but to know that it wasn’t anything i was expecting but was really appreciative of. thats all todays post is just greatful. thanks Mike!
Day: 1340 Shirt: Misfits - Legacy Of Brutality Color: Black Brand: Excellent Sports Wear Source: (TODAY!) this is the album that set it all off for me as far as misfits goes. this was the album i first discovered them on. i knew i liked Misfits and went to go buy an album and this cover just spoke to me.
i would later discover it was nothing more than a greatest hits album. i didn’t know any better, but i still feel the same about it today. its a fucking jam. just look at that cover. evil at its best.
Source: It’s easy today to write off these dudes with some the stuff they have going on these days. then you remember they put out albums like Ride the Lighting and Kill Em All. then you quickly forget about everything except the music. the music is always first.
Day: 1676 Shirt: Chk Chk Chk - !!! Color: Baby Blue Brand: Fruit Of The Loom Heavy Source: Bands that you like that are from your hometown, but only materialize after you get the fuck out of there. i coulda had Chk Chk Chk, but instead i got Cake, and Deftones. the Later i can deal with but the former (Cake) i coulda done without.
Day: 1421 Shirt: Led Zeppelin - the Song Remains The Same Color: Black Brand: Winterland Source: (6/2) playing little catchup. this is a little awkward fitting shirt but i am a real super for early 90′2 licensed led Zep merch.
