Source:  this if for all my friends in LA who get to see RFTC tonight without me.  seeing as how i was dumb and double book a trip on the same day as this show that i bought tickets to 4 months ago.  oh well.  i will just assume it will be awesome and just hope its not more awesome than the last time i saw  them.  perhaps it wasn’t meant to be and its a sign to hold out for the Drive like Jehu tour:)

Day: 988
Shirt: Guns N’ Roses - Use your Illusion Tour 1991-1992
Color:  Black
Brand: Brockum

Source:  this record is kind of my intro into major label rock and also my segway out of it as well.  while i loved bands like Slayer and Metallica everyone that like GNR always seemed like such dickbags.  its weird.  somehow this band just rubbed me the wrong way , i mean its not weird.  i fucking Hated Axl, he is right up there with Kanye.  both those guys could disappear forever and i would be ok with that.  its a shame cause GNR made some damn good songs, its just amazing how one person can say / do so many stupid things that overrides your brain to be able to enjoy their music.  

but then again maybe there is Karma in this world.  if there is I’m pretty sure Axl ate it thinking someone said Caramel.

Source:  I really love this band.  in my opinion one of the last great punk bands.  

Day: 983
Shirt: Drive Like Jehu - Duct Tape Headhunter Version
Color:  Black
Brand: Fruit of The Loom

Source:  such a great shirt, epic label.  so nice.  this here is such a good piece of history.  part of what i love about this blog …i know I’ve said it before but the history. the archival process.  you now know this shirt exists, what it looked like what kind of shirt it was printed on etc.  

Anyone that didn’t know this label or didn’t get into its crake..should do so ASAP.  so many good bands.  such a great scene and a slice of time/history in music.  

I can’t find anywhere online but there is a great comp called Head Start To Purgatory  it has Fishwife, Rocket From the Crypt, 411, Drive Like Jehu, Olivelawn..fuck i love Olivelawn, Drip Tank and Crash Worship.  all fucking great music and if you ever find the comp in a record store bin, buy it.  it looks like this

Oh wait You Tube, i always forget thats how people listen to music now…the dumbest method ever but whatever floats your boat people.  

Day: 970Shirt: Dinosaur Jr. - Hand It OverColor:  PurpleBrand: GiantSource:  people like to hate on this record.  Its just not their best album, but its not bad by any means.  is Piccasso’s later work bad? nope its just not as good as his peak.  even J Mascis’ turds smell way better than most bands best album.  so suck on that haters. my only real complaint is the lack of Neil Blender artowrk on the album .

Shirt: Big Drill Car - Couch Tour ‘88
Color:  White
Brand: Hanes Fifty-Fifty
Source:  really found one of the best T-shirt scores ever this year.  If you thought Descendents was one of my favorite bands this band is hot on the tail of them.  I really can’t get enough of their music.  i never missed a chance to see them, but in ‘88 I had no idea who they were just yet.  So when this shirt poped up it was the only 2nd time i had seen it.  the first time i was smart enough tot document it

Clearly as you can see the ruler my intention was in case i ever needed to remake this shirt i could and do it proper.  but notice the difference one is B/W and one has a Red Logo?  crazy right?  i mean only crazy if you are a nerd who collects Big Drill Car Tour shirts.   but to have only seen two of these shirts in my life and both of them are different makes me wonder, which one was first and is there another edition?  SO many questions.  This EP was a fucking epic piece of work. for a debut.  i remember listening to it so much and tripping about that the car crash sound at the end of Mag Wheel was the exact same Car Crash sound effect on Black Flag’s Drinking and Driving song.  i know it sounds stupid but back then it seems so unimaginable!  later on in life i get it.  but back to this shirt.. 

Anyone have answers for me?

Day: 955Shirt: Modest Mouse - BuffaloColor:  Army GreenBrand: Fruit Of the Loom HeavySource:  Today is Kurt Cobains Birthday… Happy Birthday Buddy.   Its also the 30th Anniversary of the Smiths first Self Titled Album So Happy birthday to them it as well Kind of a big day in music one would say and here i am wearing a Modest Mouse shirt not really giving a fuck.  yeah i could have worn a Nirvana shirt, or YET ANOTHER Smiths shirt and go on and on, but to be honest i woke up this morning with a lil something inside me that i could only equate to some Isaac Brock lyrics and the signature twangy guitar of his.  Modest Mouse always had this way of filling this amazing voice that I’m not sure any other band has filled for me. maybe Cloud Nothings thats as close as it comes and i Just mean that one Cloud Nothings record Attack On Memory. But in all honesty, it doesn’t  even come close.    I’m just reaching.  Modest Mouse is part Punk, Part Country, Part Singer Songwriter, Part Attitude, Part I Don’t Give a Fuck and so much more all rolled up.  its just that good.

Day: 949Shirt: Supergrass - GlobeColor:  WhiteBrand: Screen StarsSource:  A Post today that has absolutely nothing to do with Valentines Day.  I’ll be honest Holidays don’t mean much to me in general people use them as excuses to do nice things and be nice to other people when my mentality is just do that everyday.  the world would be a ruling place if that was so.  
SUPERGRASS is like that but musically
they just keep giving and giving better and better songs.  songs so catchy it would make Blink-182 puke.   i beg of you if you never listened to Supergrass before or never got into them, just listen to this record all the way through once and tell me it sucks.
