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.

a rare non shirt post. but this nerd above is Chris Shary. or at least this is what Chris Shary thinks he looks like, cause its a self portrait of himself.  I’m proud to call this dude a friend.  Not only is he a friend but he also is a tremendous artist who can draw a caricature of any one pretty easily and accurately.  you might recognize him from his many shirt designs you have seen here on the Minor thread tho.  Most of which are for the band ALL or Descendents, but also 7 Seconds, Lagwagon, Hi Standard, Chemical People, Big Drill Car, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, and probably many many more but you get the idea.  
So after many months of kicking him in the butt he found a good reason to open up a store and make some great art available to the public.  He wanted to take his family to see Japan.  good plan.  so I’m here just to let people know the store is up and you can either ruby the stuff he puts up there currently or you can go the route of commishioning him to do a custom piece for you which he gladly will and the out come is nothing short of impressive.  see below
 
this one is one of my favorites by a long shot.  
 
love me a Milo Ramones tribute 

fuck it, a Cat version of Milo, why noT?

and a real mental interpretation of what Bob from Bob’s Burgers would look like, crazy good.  

for those POTA fans out there.  killing it

the Filmage poster art was where it all began

or a real fucking cute dog named Bambu.  looking Regal

maybe one of the coolest Japanese dude on earth

or, I’m bias here…a real cool looking mofo 
ANYWAYs go buy some art, support the arts, get creative and challenge the dude.  follow him on tumblr here chrisshary or on insta to get the quick draw when he posts up art for sale here and most import lay the store.  click the giant photo above or go to chirshary.bigcartel.com  
ADD ART TO YOUR LIFE.  its nice to look at when you walk around the house.

Shirt: …And You Will Know us By The Trail Of The Dead - Life’s Boring.  I Hate It
Color:  White
Brand: All Sport
Source: watched this band break a lot of shit over the years.  its funny when your band is famous for wrecking the house kinda.  i mean clearly they are famous of for more.  but the live show is what they really cut their teeth on.  they rose up  through the ranks over the years and played may a good show but my favorite and first was them at SXSW i wanna say early 2000’s?  it was Thrice and them at Red Eye Fly in Austin, way before SXSW was a gross circus side show, it was about watching bands only.  anyways the band ended up trashing the place so bad and getting thrown out of their own show.  but i guess that it was what it took back in the day to get the entire city buzzing about what happened last night.  that same trip i believe Icarus line was playing a hard rock or something like that and Aaron broke a Stevie Ray faugh guitar out of a case on the wall and plugged it in and started playing it.  the cops would be searching for them the entire week.  fucking great times.
