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: Metronomy - US of A tour 2012
Color:  White
Brand: Gilden Softstyle
Source: went to this show a few years ago..was really a fan of the last album he did (the one this tour is for) and the following one, Love Letters.  Its the simpler pop music side of me that enjoys this band.  the guy that loves New Order and Pet Shop Boys, and enjoys a simple catchy beat to tap my foot to.

Shirt: Chromatics - Make Up
Color:  Black
Brand: Pimatee
Source: (Yesterday)  its been one scorcher of a week here.  i just wanted one of those light thin shirts that won’t stick to my skin.  this Chromatics shirt did nicely.  i listened to Kill For Love and just layer on the couch and tried not to sweat.  brutal.  more of that today I’m sure.  black might have been the best choice but seeing as i stayed indoors for most of the daylight hours i was safe.

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.

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.
