T-Classics, Round 1
For better or for worse I collect shit. Kind of like how they say a gold fish grows to fit the size of it’s tank (I think I heard that somewhere), I collect things to hoarder status. For me, I save mostly records, clothes and stickers, nothing like dead cats or used gum.
I figured I’d share some favorite T’s in my collection, some new, some old, some happen to be OBEY (I was a huge fan before I worked here), some of them just random weirdness. Mostly rock based stuff this time. Hope you dig it because I plan on doing a couple rounds of this. If you don’t like it, I hate you and don’t ever try to talk to me. Just kidding, I love everyone!
Peace like nose grease,
Don’t remember where I got this one but it doesn’t fit anymore. I’, not as skinny as I used to be, so my chick repossessed it. Could be worse things in life than a foxy lady in a Black Sabbath T. Anyone know what year this is from?
From Sabbath to Black Bart Sabbath. See how I did that! Like a lot of people these days, I’m into bootleg T’s especially some Simpson’s shit. This is from last year.
Scored this on Hollywood Blvd, when Hollywood Blvd was scummy. Oh wait, it still is scummy! Was on a ride with my brother and the main man Hassan (check out his work, its super nice! HASSANRAHIM)
Onto an OBEY shirt also from last year. Shepard did a Record Store Day 7″ with OFF! (ESQUIRE article HERE) I really dig OFF! and was personally really into this project. I like how it almost has a Raymond Pettibon feel to it like a Black Flag or other OFF! release but still is inherently Shep’s.
A good sequeway into the next T. It’s a shirt Buddyhead Records put out back in the day. If you don’t know what Buddyhead was it was run by this dude Travis Keller and his friend Aaron North (played in a grip of bands like Icarus Line and Nine Inch Nails). These dudes created all sorts of havoc, especially in the early 2000’s. Doing things like posting Fred Durst from Limp Bisquit’s cell number on their site. Anyway, back to the shirt, it featured a Raymond Pettibon work that I really dig still to this day. I’ve been trying to track down a print of this for a long time. I guess the T will have to due for now.
Back to a couple OBEY classics I still love. This is really one of my favorite artist series we ever did. We got to work with the wonderful human being that is Martha Cooper. Martha is a LEGENDARY graffiti photographer that still shoots the biggest names out there and is one of the coolest people you’ll ever meet. Follow her Instagram. These shots are from the late 70’s in Manhattan when it was like a big playgroup and you could afford to live there.
