Color: White

BrandFruit Of the Loom

Source: Those of you that know who the Drunk Injuns are do not need me to tell you how epic this shirt find is.  you know.  You know the impact this record had on your lives, and how this band and a handful of others pretty much invented Skate Rock.

I recently negotiated this dead stock shirt out of the hands of the singer and long time Thrasher Photographer him self, MoFo.  he said they only made a dozen or so back in the day, Thrasher printed them for him.  I have never seen one myself and was contemplating making one because i wanted one so badly.  

Why?  because i grew up listening to Thrasher Skate Rock tapes.  and Beware records.  how could you not, they got them in every sake video, it was programed in my brain.  Odd Man Out, McRad, JFA, Faction….You either got it or you didn’t i guess.  None of these albums are in print anymore, so you either have the cassette version or the LP.  If you had the cassette it sounds horrible cause it has been played over and over and over till the tape sounds like it has been cleaned with a rock.  

I don’t know what else to say..  this band means a lot to me. They used to cover a Joy Division song.  It wasn’t until a few years later that i learned it was a cover and i was spinning, this whole time i thought it was a Drunk Injuns song.  they did it so well, that i think a lot of why i love Joy Division is  because of them. 

So stoked on this shirt i will stop going on about it, but its fucking epic.
