Shirt: the Cranberries - No Need To Argue World Tour 1995
Brand: Fruit Of The Loom Classic
Source: I started out the day today listening to the New My Bloody Valentine. during the middle of it i was taken out. At track 6 i did a double take and i thought i was listening to the band IVY. i dont know why I’m going into this but if you are a music nerd and know IVY and MBV listen to track 6 on the new MBV record and tell me if you think it sounds like IVY.
So then i started listening to IVY..and tat seg-wayed into the Cranberries.. and thats how i ended up putting this shirt on today. MBV>the Cranberries. weird.
Its hard to think this record and tour was almost 15 years ago. this record totally takes me back to a time when i was listening to 3 records heavily. this one, Dinosaur Jr. Without a Sound and Mazzy Star - So Tonight I Might See. I had just broken up with a girl i had been dating for 5 years. worst idea ever dating a girl that long as a teenager. luckily i didn’t do anything stupid like get married or anything back then. I would go to work, listen to music and i kinda hid out for a while. doing weird stuff like making a stop action version of Pulp Fiction with barbie dolls i painted. then i decided to see if i could wire my car cd player that was laying around in my house to an outlet and try to make a home stereo out of it. bad idea. shocked the shit out of me and blew the breaker for the entire apt building. lesson learned.
It sounds like a dark time, but reality it wasn’t. it was the first time in my life i hung out with myself. i didn’t rely on friends to talk to or felt like i had to be going out. i learned a lot about myself and got to grow a little bit more and also got some great perspective on relationships.
The Cranberries will always remind me of that time, time a remember fondly.
