Shirt: Gray Matter - Bite The Bit
Brand: American Style t-shirts
Source: there was a time when Dischord would fart out any record and i (and probably a lot of other kids) would buy it. Didn’t matter what it sounded like you just knew that if Dischord put it out it was going to be just good at the very least. i spent a lot of tome buying albums on the back of all my Dag Nasty / Fugazi purchases that i thought its only 5 bucks ill try it out.
this ad is a perfect example here. use obscure Cynthia Conolly photo, add band name at bottom and boom i was sold. i would say i bought every album form the list above there aside from Fidelity Jones, which i can’t even say i ever remember. aside from Fugazi, i knew no other band on that list until i mail ordered them. i think i have to say my most favorite surprise album from this list was Holly Rollers. i really enjoy ed that album a lot.
Grey Matter was no joke either, it was solid and i liked it but it was never the undiscovered Dag Nasty you always secretly hoped for. i will take any band on Dischord any day of the week over anything that gets played on the radio today tho. anyday.
