Shirt: Spiritualized® - Spaceman
Color: Kelly Green
Source: somedays you just wanna turn on a little Spiritualized and float out to space. i don’t know what Buzz aldron would say but i gotta think if i was literally floating in space in a suit i would be ok with having a Spiritualized as a soundtrack in my suit. maybe i willjsut put some headphones on turn out the lights and throw a bucket over my head.
Shirt: Black Lips - Peanuts
Color: Athletic Gold
Brand: American Apparel
Source: When you wanna go to a show real bad but can’t. friends grab you shirts cause they know you would have wanted them. thats the coolest fucking shit ever. this last Black Lips Album is fucking good. I’m sad i missed them last time.
Shirt: the Cardigans - Band Drawing
Brand: Fruit Of The Loom Heavy
Source: I wanna say this was 2003? the Troubadour in LA. but who knows. i suppose i AM at a computer and could look it up while i type this, but your memory is a muscle and you need to exercise it…right?
I have been a real long time fan of this band, i am pretty sure it was acoustic Black Sabbath covers that really did it for me, they nailed this songs so good. then they got kinda blown out by love fool and you heard that song over n over n over. then like most radio pop hits, people stop caring, lose interest. but they kept making good albums, i kept buying them, and going to see them live every time they came to town. still would had they not thrown in the towel. I guess i will just have to wait for the reunion tour. yeah ill go to that too.
Shirt: Morrissey - November Spawned A Monster (Reproduction)
Source: I would rarely a sunday goes by where the the thought doesn’t cross my mind, Everyday is Like Sunday. Its true. Like when someone says “I Can’t Go Out Tonight”…my mind always feels the need to say “Cause You haven’t Got a Stitch to wear???”
well its Sunday. and this was the alt version i made of the black shirt. even tho I’m black on the inside doesn’t mean i want to every shirt to be black on the outside. so i made 2 silver and 2 white of each size. its sad but no one buys shirts that aren’t black sometimes. i enjoy color. and variety. I even made the white ones which white ink. so that when you shirt dulls and fades the white ink will still be white and it will have more depth. do you care? probably not.
Shirt: Descendents - Somery (Bootleg?)
Brand: Gilden Heavy Cotton
Source: Now today i have had Descendents on the brain all morning so i piped this on. which i can only assume is a bootleg, because i got it off eBay. I can however appreciate that it was done tastefully. good printing, proper shirt color choice. didn’t over do it. simple tasteful application of the cover. i was going to make this as a kid myself i remember contemplating it, but decided against it and here is why. so many people who you ask what their fav descendents album is they will say Somery. and I’m like WTF??? how can a greatest hits album be your fav, and they have no clue. so this is my 20 years later a little more relaxed and ready to say, ok great job, Somery is a great album but its still just a hits album and as far as I’m concerned every album they make is a Hits album.
Shirt: Joyce Manor - Matt & Frank
Source: not sure how many of you have caught on to Joyce Manor (seen at day #552) yet but here is me saying you should cause i can’t get enough of it really. They have a new album that comes out today and since it leaked last week and i have been listening to it for Free the least i could do it post it up today.
the new album Never Hungover Again has so many different classic punk influences in it i hear. while even the band may not think it or know but i hear very distinct sounds of Seattle’s own Sicko (Christmas Card), a little Saves the Day (the Jerk), a smudge of Jawbreaker and dare i say it a lil bit of the good early Blink-182 (Heart Tatoo) as well. despite having these very pop melodic sounding parts the album doesn’t have that cheesy sound to it all and i think thats where the Jawbreaker influence comes in. balancing out the pop parts with the angst guitar parts and darker vocals that really make this a fucking enjoyable album for me.
Im not sure what it is for me that really does it for me. I mean i have seen them a few times and its just the kind of band that puts off a we are having a fun time live vibe that really puts me in the best mood. the record i think is one of those albums that didn’t jam all the good hits in the first 3 songs, so you can enjoy the whole album and not feel like there is this hit and after that it is downhill. that or the album was just poorly sequenced, but i prefer to think of it as strategic. I think they are gunna be on tour soon cause they are playing LA soon so ill post some tour dates below and a link to buy at iTunes and stream the album. and a place to buy merch too :)
I hope you guys like it. i mean feel like its safe to say that if you like half the bands on here i post up shirts for you will def like this.
Ill Say it before and ill say it again. Support good new bands or else enjoy the alternative, a lifetime of Gaga and Beiber
