Day: 1176

Shirt: ALL - Allroy Saves European Tour (One Color)

Color:  Red

Brand: US Bull

Source: let me start off by saying if you are in the LA area and you are reading this and not doing it from a mobile device  i want to punch you.  ALL is playing tonight at Log Globos with Chad and Scott singing and after wards there is a punk Rock Karaoke jam as well.  OH YEAH did i mention it is also the Filmage LA release party? SO if you are not in So Ca you can buy this online and at least watch it at midnight.  

This shirt, while really neat cause it was a gift Stephen Egerton sent me is one wonky ass shirt.  for starters its an XL and it fits really tinly like a Large. it has a giant collar and the sleeves are borderline jersey fit.  they go past my elbows.  so crazy.  its hard to believe what shirt companies used to get away with.  

BUT it is a nice one off i think probably made for the band.  the only one i have seen of its kind and love it for that reason at least.  ok enough typing,  go see this show or go buy the movie.  I’m going to go swim in the ocean.

Shirt: the Mars Volta - Tarantuwoman
Color:  Red
Brand: M&O
Source: As i was in physical Therapy today for my shoulder.  this woman who came to work me through my exercises started making idle chit chat with me and then all of a sudden looked at my shirt and freaked out.  so much so that she decided to stand behind me and then when she walked around put her hand in front of her face to block out the image.  
So i asked her, what was the deal, you don;t like the Mars Volta that much?  
she said who?  
I said Mars Volta…
She replied um i dunno, i just hate spiders.  
then i said oh, good, cause i thought you might have been offended by the naked woman, 
what naked woman she said?

Shirt: Naked Raygun - Blue Logo
Color:  Black
Brand: Tag Missing
Source: this shirt has been pretty prevalent over the years.  hard to tell what ever any of them are from, especially when the tag is ripped out.  But none the less it is a classic logo from  band i was not in love with for a long time until reading more about them in the book this Band Could Be your Life

i was reading the chapter about Big Black and i never knew the Naked Raygun guys were in the band.  another reason why i love this book so much.  I can’t emphasize this book enough, especially if you read this blog and enjoy it.  this book is a must read.  you spend a week reading an in-depth mini biography about a band and then i spend a month listening to the bands catalog and then re read the chapter. no joke.  I once read the Chapter on Fugazi, then took a road trip with someone and made them listen to every Fugazi song in order ever recorded.  its a real great way to get so immersive in the music.  
After i read the Big Black chapter i was listing to Big Black for a month or two straight and that, in case you were wondering is how shit like this gets made.
 
its the serious nerd in me that just gets so immersed in it and so reinvigorated it brings me a small bit of joy.  this is coming from a guy who admittedly has a hard time enjoying anything so that says a lot.  
So today this Naked Raygun shirt is for all the friends and readers out there that are having a blast in Chicago at Riot Fest This weekend and getting to see bands Like Pegboy, Descendents, and Naked Raygun.  have fun very one, take some merch pics for me.  

Oh yeah go track this super nerd down and buy some art out of a backpack.  how cool is that??

Shirt: They Might be Giants - Don’t Let’s Start

Color:  White

Brand: Brockum

Source: believe it or not this band was kinda punk at point point.  or quasi punk.  this kind of music, like Devo was a total foray into punk for me.  It was unique, fast, different, and most people didn’t like or know about it. it was def a secret.  even more secret if you knew the dial up number you could call and they would play a song on it for you.  everything they did was super cool.  eventually they would start to fade out but then find an entire new audience.  kids.  kids music that was totally tolerable to adults.  kinda fucking genius to play to the people who used to listen to you but now had kids who liked you. find the common ground between adult and kid.  

these first two TMBG albums tho were / are still so unique and well written there is not a whole lot like it in the world and will always remain very TMBG.

Shirt: Dios Malos - Gang Signs
Color:  Blue
Brand: Hanes
Source: (a Day Late) after the last post of Ink and Dagger i got to thinking about another band that i kind of associated with the Buddyhead scene and that was the band Dios.  who thanks to Ronny James Dio had to change their name to Dios Malos.  one of them bands that seemed so promising then like a rocket re-entering the atmosphere it could hold it together and fell apart.  some went on to form other bands, do other project but nothing seemed to have that great vibe this band had.  the bands wiki says they are still active but I’m not sure how accurate that is.  i know they played a show a while back but thats about it.  give it a whirl if you are into stuff like the beach boys and the beta band.

Shirt: Ink & Dagger - Philadelphia Society Of Future Vampires
Color:  Red
Brand: Jerzees
Source: never really contemplated Ink & Dagger as as Vampire rock but i guess it kinda makes sense.  frequently referred to on the once famous buddy head site i always used to hear about them in the same breath and Icarus Line.  then i remember early 2000s when the singer was found dead apparently i believe what i heard was OD’s on pills and drinking.  
Ink & Dagger seemed to have a short but powerful career.  coming in and stomping there brand and then seeming to have left as quickly as they came.  I remember one live show, which was incredible but then it was gone.

Shirt: Unwritten Law - Letters
Color:  Yellow
Brand: Jerzeez
Source: Once upon a time a stumbled upon this band from a compilation.  I believe it was a compilation called bunco Sucks with a lil baby on the front.

yeah thats it.  liberation records.  it was pretty amazing for the time.  that is where i first heard Blink as well.  aside form Sublime it was a really solid comp of a lot of Southern California bands i wasn’t able to see at the time cause i lived in Northern California and didn’t know the scene down there at all.  shit i was shut learning what my own scene was like.  but this comp came out and it was great song after great song, and allowed me to discover so many other bands.  bands like Unwritten Law.
Punk Sucks by Minor Thread on Grooveshark

So i went out and bought this debut album form this band, and it was really good.  at the time it was some of th best solid pop punk i had heard in a long time. it was punk and still had lots of harmonies.  to me it was as if Pennywise was less bro and more eMO. the album got a lot of play from me.  then a long pause came and the band put a new CD that didn’t capture any of the energy of the debut.  not even close.  then late they just seemed to dwindle and dwindle and i don’t hear much from them anymore. but man this first album was good.
