Day: 1190

Shirt: Ministry - Jesus Built My Hotrod

Color:  White

Brand: Brockum

Source: caught up to todays shirt finally.  the Ministy song was my favorite but i think mostly because it had Gibby form Butthole Surfers on it.  you can hear him so clear on it it is light night and day.  Al Jorgensen did know how to team up with good musicians.  thats for sure.  this song and Pailhead are my two favorite things he has ever done.  Jesus Built My Hotrod by Ministry on Grooveshark

Day: 1187
Shirt: Alkaline Trio - Scissors
Color:  Black
Brand: Hanes heavyweight
Source: so today I’m wearing this alkaline Trio shirt because it’s a real bummer that I can’t make the past lives show they are doing at the troubadour four nights in a row I really really wanted to go but since I got in this motorcycle accident I can’t really do much except for Voice dictate blog post like this and try and make up for it somehow.  I did have somebody who was kind enough to send me A merch pic from last night show where they play the newest record and then played goddamnit so if anybody wants to know what the Merch looks like here is a picture


 Not mad at any of this at all if I was there I would probably buy all of it but somebody was nice enough to grab me the past live shirt for me since I can’t be there again sad I hope whoever goes has a super fun time I’m fucking jealous of you.
The shirt I have on even though you can barely see it is the classic scissors design which I believe was picked up on the from here to infirmary tour and was drawn and sold by Heather gable it was the Murch girl at the time I love this design it might be my favorite alkaline Trio design ever in existence.  I used to have a gray version of this which I love but it was in medium and my fat ass outgrew it so sadly all I have is this black one I am still on the hunt for a gray version though someday it will be mine oh yes it will be mine.
Shout out to my orthopedic doctor stetson and powell!
Anyways if you’re going to the show tonight or this week have a fucking awesome time in my honor and if you’re going in Chicago or New York I’m jealous of you as well.  Also a big day for me because I got to shower and now take this down the sling and wear it outside of my shirt instead of underneath it I feel so much more free!   okay I’m out

Shirt: Skankin’ Pickle - skafunkrastapunk
Color:  White
Brand: Bayside
Source: i experimented with Ska for a hot second as a kid.  it was a weird culture that i just didn’t get, or get into, and the  whole “skankin” thing always just looked goofy to me.  but hey i was young, impressionable and thought hey , i like Operation Ivy, why can’t i get into this? No boubt?  no way. Save Ferris? Rather save my money.  Goldfinger? i was more of a silver man.  nothing worked for me, and while the ska bands would still be thrown onto bills of the bands i liked, it was just a relationship that was never meant to be.  Skankin’ Pickle was always my favorite name tho, and this shirt graphic was good, it was the only one i could ever stomach.  later i would realize that front man of this band was Mike Park who ran Asian Man Records who put out great shit like Alkaline Trio, Joyce Manor and Lawrence Arms.  so after realizing that it kind of made sense to me that i appreciated this band a little more than the rest.  good roots maybe.. who knows.   I def don’t miss Ska but i do miss their ridiculous band names.  RIP.  please don’t make a comeback.

Shirt: Rocket From the Crypt - Scream Dracula Scream (SAVX - Savage Pencil Design)
Color:  White
Brand: Tultex
Source: Fucking love this album, Scream was such a good record and it came out on Vagrant right in the middle of Vagrants heyday.  Alkaline trio, Face to Face, Saves the Day, Hot Rod Circuit…oh and Get Up Kids..der.   everything that was coming out was either super good (see previous list) or super popular but not great (i.e. Dashboard Confessional).  don’t get me wrong its not that DC was a band band, it was just not intended for me.  far be it form me to hate on someones music because its not my type, it just wasn’t for me.  
BUT Rocket.  holy shit!  the first four songs alone are a giant musical bat hitting you over the head and waking you the fuck up.  the rest of the album is great two but this ones drops bombs on you right away that the rest of the album is just aftermath of their destruction.  Any RFTC fan knows what i mean, and if you don’t believe me crack this bad boy open and listen for yourself on 11.  
after a few texts back and forth with the almighty Dave Naz about art he helped me decipher the signature on this design SAVX which turned out to be a guy named Savage Pencil.  i’d heard of him before but if you asked me to cite a specific design of his i would be remiss.  until today when i looked him up and it turns out he was the guy that did Big Black’s album cover Headache

this guy i always thought had a very Pushead esque design aesthetic that i really dug.  so I’m stoked today i can finally draw a line between designs and put a name to the pencil…the Savage Pencil.

Shirt: fIREHOSE - Engagin’ the Milker Tour ‘90
Color:  Red
Brand: Hanes Beefy-T
Source: So happy to be home. i get to home home to my dog, my house my bed, and shirts like this firehose shirt i have been wanting forever and recently picked up.  you may have recalled in a post on Day #230 i have had this shirt before but it was completely illegible.

I really had no idea as to what this shirt looked like until i opened the package that it came in.  it is a weird deign ill say that.  from someplace after fROMOHIO and before Flying the Flannel.  a good era indeed.  i think as far as fIREHOSE shirt designs go this was the last one in existence i know of that i dint. have.  But there are still color variations that are unknown but will eventually trickle in. like the above shirt someone posted a comment on my Instagram saying they had this in beige so i have that to look forward to tracking down.  
ivae had pretty good hunting skills over the years through looking at old live photos, magazine ads and stuff like this, the fIREHOSE mail club flyer the Muster Roll

Im kind of a shirt detective eh?  boom collect em all!  its like a curse catch phrase that is pounded into you as a kid.
