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: Lush - Shaving The Pavement US Tour 1996

Color:  Red

Brand: Fruit Of The Loom Heavy

Source: nothing reminds me more of Japan than Lush.  so much so that earlier this week when we were on Monkey island we were driving around and we stopped at a light only to see this tiny car of kids drive by and park their Mini and all i could think about was the 500 (Shake Baby Shake) single cover.  

see cover below, its not exact but you get the same vibe.

so yeah, its all pretty cool here in Japan.  peace.

Shirt: the Pixies - Velouria

Color:  Navy

Brand: Hanes 100%

Source: spent a lot of time traveling yesterday.  now halfway across the world it seems like.  the one thing that always keeps me comfortable it listening to music.  there are a few bands i like to travel a lot with and just tune out when I’m on a train or a plane and stare out the window.  one of them bands most def the Pixies.  it is a very comforting sound to me and for some reason always makes me think of Japan despite i have to connection with them and the land.  who knows.  

wifi is scares here but i will try to get up as much as possible.  until then.. VA LOR E UHHHHHHH.

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: Robert Plant - Manic Nirvana

Color:  White

Brand: Tag Missing

Source: (Yesterday)  Iva had this shirt for a while now. i really love me some Led Zeppelin but I’m always amazed at how Robert Plant could make solo albums that were so horrible after Led Zep.  i don’t blame him tho, i blame the 80’s/90’s it was a weird time and there was a lot of pressure to create weird Robert Palmer sounding albums.  I give him credit tho, later on in the later 2000’s and now he started making good music again i think he finally just came around to making it more naturally then trying to make something happen.  

I do think however and why i own this shirt is not only cause well, he WAS in Led Zeppelin so he got creed points stored up for decades, but the i really did the cover art on this album. its one of those things where i wish the album was as good as the cover art.  sadly it wasn’t, but hey we will always have this shirt. listen below for yourself.

Shirt: Gorillaz - Skull
Color:  Black
Brand: Gorillaz
Source: (from Yesterday) I was just thinking to myself how good this record was, Demon Days.  Great pop album with some great guests and production.  i love this record.  I mean to be honest i think i love Gorillaz a lot more than i think.  they are a  lot like Blur in the way that every album is great but then there are like 2-3 epic jams on each one.  someday there will be a greatest hits like the Blur album 
that is unstoppable front to back. its pretty impressive how many slam dunk songs Damon Albarn has written.  and imagine if the Good the Bad and the Queen was a Gorillaz album too.  dayum.  Whoa i just had a thought.  what if there was a Damon Albarn GH album.  that would be pretty fucking good.  id buy that.  
until that happens listen to Demon Days and remember back just how good it was.  this shirt incidentally a promo from my days working at Capitol.  a serious keeper for me of some fun good days.

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.
