This is my most legit shirt, for sure. I think they might have been throwing their t-shirts into the audience. Or maybe I bought it. I have a 7 inch single of theirs too. One of my high school bands, Mohammad Chang, played in the show during which I got the shirt in room 203 of the University Centre at the University of Guelph. I remember they did a punk rock cover of Take it Easy by The Eagles/Jackson Browne that involved shouting “take it easy” over and over for the choruses. It was awesome. There was some great stuff happening in Guelph in the early 90s. I was 16 or 17 when I got this shirt. I can’t wear it too often because it could fall apart at any moment.
This post is for a gallery of indie tshirts we are building to document the social history of independent music. Do you have a great indie band or artist tshirt you’d like to profile in a TINI gallery? Send us a photo (jpg, 300 dpi scan, or 2MB or less) of the shirt in action with a brief (less than 300 words) write up that tells us how and when you got the shirt, and something about your connection with the band or artist, or some kind of historical context, and we will add it to our gallery: email inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
