Shirt: Pitchfork - Turquoise Trout
Source: Every time i wear this shirt i get all paranoid that people will think i am repping the website of the same name. I am pretty sure i made myself clear in in a recent post about my feelings of media influenced reviews but if not you can re-read it here. Don’t get me wrong i don’t hate on the site or anything, i appreciate what it has contributed to music. its just the rating of music that i find worthless. and Pitchfork is at the top of that media lit. they take it a lil too far in in my opinion. well a lot too far.
but this post is about the epic band, not the media site. its about a band that was a spark or many fires but in my opinion none that have lit as brightly as Pitchfork. something about the energy on this record that is fucking undeniable. a power that was so big it was un harnisable and couldn’t be reproduced for a second record.
Would i mind if they played a gain..fuck no. a new record? i think at this point why fuck with it. this record is untouchable. would Davinci try to paint another Mona Lisa? nah, you just leave it, display it. let people enjoy it.
Its a time capsule of power and punk.
I need to make a pitchfork shirt of this album cover and 7” oh yes, i will.
