Shirt: Black Flag -Loose Nut Live ‘85
Brand: Fruit Of The Loom Best
Source: Much like yesterdays shirt, this one i have been obsessing over for about two years, so finally i just nutted up and made it myself. I don’t enjoy talking a whole lot and that includes talking about things i want to do…I would rather talk about things i HAVE done. This shirt wasn’t going to print it self, so here i am.
Loose Nut is in particular a very special record for me. It was my first black flag ALBUM i owned. i think the local record store i went to only have a few albums by Black Flag and it was either this or a live album. mind you when i say album i mean cassette tape. back when it was either tapes or Vinyl, and neither was considered to be retro, or clever. it was just shitty sound and a horrible fast forward rewind experience all around.
But loose Nut i loved it..I was floored it was heavy and dark, and it wasnt the popy singers that i had heard in passing before. this was heavy Rollins punching the floor process of weeding out Black Flag. from here i moved on to In My Head then when to first four years, then slip it in, the My War. it was a weird introduction, but i really took my time with this band I was in no hurry to burn them out. i really enjoyed each tape before moving on to another. I thin kin total it was almost 3-4 years before i had every album. So glad i did it this way, cause now today each record reminds me of different times in my life. the Loose Nut Days, the First Four Years / Everything Went Black , years. and The My War Slip it in Era. So Yeah this shirt means a lot to me. reminds me of hanging out on my own one summer, building a spine Ramp in Cameron Park, and leaning how to skate the shit out it. Made a whole bunch of new friends dated a really hot chick for like a week. and got my first flow package for skatebaording. it was a good era.
