Day: 947Shirt: Pitchfork - Went For BurritosColor:  KahakiBrand: Fruit Of the LoomSource:  Today was as good as day as it was ever going to get to wear this shirt.  I mean today is the mans Birthday.  He was responsible for freeing slaves and the least i can do it immortalize him with this shirt and a hunger for mexican food.  
I made this a few weeks back during my meltdown printing day when i tried to make too many designs in one day.  but i really love Pitchfork and wanted to make this shirt.  if for nothing else but the sublety of it all.  I am a real bug fan of Rick Froberg art and this was no exception.  although this was never on any cover you might recognize it from the insert to the Eucalyptus 12”.  
Happy birthday Abe, thanks for making America a lot less disgusting.

Day: 914Shirt: Pitchfork - Eucalyptus SwingColor:  Athletic GoldBrand: Fruit Of the Loom BestSource: NO its not for the website, its the band.  I have literally never taken this record out of rotation since the 90’s, it’s that good.  Before there was Obits, Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu, and Rocket from The Crypt there was Pitchfork. a short lived debut project of Rick Froberg and John Reese.  the catalyst of all the other bands if you will.  the nucleus of this very distinctive San Diego sound on Cargo Records.  Its catchy, simple, fast, fun…its perfect.  Every year when bands announce they are doing a reunion i hold my breath for this.  i never got to see them and always wish some night at an obits show or hot snakes they will break out Saturn as an encore or something.  
AND yes i did make this shirt myself.  people ask me all the time do you make all of your shirts?  the answer is no.  but when you are doing a post a day it gets hard.  you want to tai about different bands, or bands you love and they didn’t make shirts or they are impossible to find so you have to make your own destiny.  THAT and i absolutely LOVE rick Froberg Art.  dude is amazing, has great style and an impeccable sense of humor and aesthetic.  everything he makes is great design wise.  a few are available in the store but i know none of you will buy them. you can regret that later tho, its up to you
I Can tell you that this will not be the last Pitchfork post you see this week thats how much i love this band. sorry in advance if you have bad taste and don’t like Rick Froberg.

Day: 595
Shirt: Belle & Sebastian - Ampersand
Color: Navy Blue
Brand: Fruit Of the Loom Heavy
Source: In Case you are sitting at work today with not much to do and want to fill your brain with some really good information.  Pitchfork Classic released one of their documentaries this week on Belle & Sebastian’s “If You’re Feeling Sinister.”  I superbly great documentary series that takes a record and highlights the making behind it.  a visual 33 1/3 if you will.  In hindsight i should posted up the one they did on Modest Mouse in that post earlier.  that would have made sense..duh.  
Either way i am a big sucker for documentaries in a big way.  Im the kind of guy that not only is interested in thew product but the making of the product.  example no t only do i enjoy a nicely crafted table with dovetails i also feel the need to figure out how the dovetails are made, how the wood is stained, and for that matter, where the wood comes from.  Im just a curious person by nature.  I think i can relate it to one of my moms husbands.  one time i asked him how does one of these lights work

Shirt: Pitchfork - Turquoise Trout
Color: Turquoise
Brand: Hanes
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.

Brand: Oneita
Source:  All I had to do was mention the first Pitchfork CD this morning to someone and it put me in the mode for this band.  seriously.  if you have never listened to Drive Like Jehu or Pitchfork, spend the rest of this day doing it.  nothing says summertime like some Rick Froberg vocals.  don’t ask me why, just does.

Day: #264 Drive Like Jehu - Duct Tape Logo
Color: Black
Source: Tag Missing
Brand: Went to see the Hot Snakes the other night before i left at Troubadour.  Shit was fucking awesome.  That is a group of Musicians who are talented, tight and know how to plow through a set like it was opening a beer bottle. no sweat.  Since i am at a hotel and starving , i will be succinct.
I loved Hot Snakes last night, i love Jehu even more, and even more than that i love Pitchfork.  when they play my head will explode.

Day: #236 Pitchfork - Fish Shirt
Color: Grey
Brand: Stedman
Source: I have been trying to find a Pitchfork shirt for about 10+ years.  It is virtually impossible.  they either are very few in existence or are impossible to search for.  its like trying to find a shirt from the band ALL, or Brand New  it just gets clogged up and lost in the feed of data that gives you pages and pages of wrong information.
Anyhow, all my friends either Love the shit out of Rocket From the Crypt and or Hot Snakes and Drive Like Jehu, but none of them appreciate or know about Pitchfork.  Don’t get me wrong i love Drive Like Jehu, and Hot Snakes and RFTC, but none of them have even held water to the earlier formation they once titled Pitchfork.  It is an anomaly i think, similar to one of records that were made and then abandoned only to have a long amazing legacy that is almost mythical. Egghunt is one of those bands, Pailhead is another.  for some reason or another, the stars align and the music they produce truly is once in a lifetime, and then it is gone never to resurface again, and for good reason, if it did it would never have the same effect.  So if any of you had Egghunt or Pailhead on your list of bands you fuckign love and have never heard of Pitchfork i am so fucking excited for you.  I wish i had never heard of them so i could re-discover them again.

PS fuck soundcloud and their dumbass copyprotections
