I recall seeing Missy Higgins (horrendous Australian singer/songwriter) wearing a Joy Division shirt.

What bands sound like shirts anyway? How do shirts sound?

Oilyrags, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 03:21 (twelve years ago) link

I gave Blowfly all my old punk shirts, but the best one is the LARD shirt we got from AT that he wore in the pisspot the puppet interview you can find on your tube.

I can think of more dissimilar sounds than between The Ramones and Paris Hilton.

saw one of the dudes from in flagranti spin old disco and new wave while wearing a black flag shirt.

haitch, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 03:25 (twelve years ago) link

shirts sounds like cash money, and to the touring musician they feed us.
buying one is an association with the band. you get cred and we get fed.

one of the best shirt stories was when this guy I know stepped to one of the good charlotte guys at warped who was wearing a Dammned T shirt.

Just think...some Lil Wayne fan is gonna ask about that skull on his shirt. Someone will eventually inform him it's the logo for the best horror rock band ever, the Misfits. He might hear their stuff, become addicted, investigate the movies behind the music...BAM! One more added to our numbers...

Ramones t-shirts on actress-model-whatevers is a fashion statement I started noticing around 2004. I've been assuming it was a "my publicist dresses me that way" sort of thing. In the last year, tho', I've seen a lot of metal t-shirts on dance music people, and more avant and eletro references to metal motifs.

s1ocki, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 17:21 (twelve years ago) link

Pop kids these days wear Motorhead or Ramones t-shirts the same way that pop kids wore Bauhaus or Siouxsie and the Banshees t-shirts in the 80s - sometimes, when I'd confront people on it, they'd admit that they weren't even aware that these images/logos were for bands - they just thought that they were logos in the same way as wearing an Ocean Pacific t-shirt was in the 80s (hey, look at me, I'm a cool surfer chick, even though I live 1000 miles from the nearest ocean).

Masonic Boom, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 17:33 (twelve years ago) link

Though, the other half of me would say... don't be so quick to judge everyone you see wearing a shirt that you think expresses a kind of music you don't associate with them.

I can't help but wonder what someone would think who didn't know me, if they saw *me* wear a Motorhead or a Stooges shirt onstage at an indiepop club? (I do always wear a Stooges shirt to soundcheck as a good luck charm. I wonder if people think it's ironic.)

Mr. Snrub, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 17:49 (twelve years ago) link

clearly, there's nothing wrong or annoying about wearing a t-shirt of a band you're not into, but I do find it odd that anyone would actually WANT to do so.

a t-shirt says 'I like this music', but if that's not true then it suggests that on some level you think maybe you should, which betrays a lack of confidence in your own judgement and a degree of acquiesence to what's considered 'cool' or 'edgy'. or alternatively, it becomes a pointless ironic gesture, like a goth kid in a boyzone T.

but then again, maybe it's just about fancy dress and shouldn't be taken as signifying anything. after all, I am not truly an amazon, but I occasionally dress like wonder woman.

"do people have any awareness at all of when they turn into grizzling grandads?"

nah. comes to us all. one day you're young and carefree and full of joy, the next you're moaning on and on about what's in the top 10 and what's in the music press, even if you haven't heard it, and finding yourself increasingly alienated from what the kids are listening to.

Not really. It may say "I like this look." Look at it from the other side. You wouldn't wear a shirt you don't like from a band you dig, would you?

Oilyrags, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 18:08 (twelve years ago) link

actually, I have done and may well do again. within reason.

but I'm an awkward, shabby man who frankly can't be arsed to go clothes shopping. therefore band t-shirts are a godsend for those like me. they enable us to select what we wear without actually having to endure the unpleasant ordeal of thinking about clothing instead of tunes.

Just wanted to mention that I watched this Three 6 Mafia at MTV Spring Break special a couple weeks ago, and one of the 2 guys (I think Juicy J, but it might have been the other one) was wearing a different rock band shirt each time he changed clothes. I believe the shirts were for Guns N Roses, Metallica, Iron Maiden, and one other one which I can't remember now.

I think it's a sex code thing more than an overt statement of affiliation with any particular band/ genre. It's like they're saying, "Although my public/ performance personna is consistently this one thing, this t-shirt is indicative of what'd it be like to have sex with me."

Well, one of my friends was deeply into tepid indie bollocks, but regularly wore a t-shirt that proclaimed "McFly are actually quite good"!!!!!!!!!

And, what's more, he wasn't being ironic!!!!!! He actually quite liked McFly!!!!! That's why wore so often!!!!!!!

all these famouses are already on t-shirts and have identities that are reducible to a t-shirt. they're walking t-shirts themselves. the semiotics of a walking t-shirt wearing a t-shirt are going to be different than those of a civilian wearing the same shirt.

like i could subsume my identity in a smiths shirt but durst can't recede in the same way. he can only scramble the durst signal, redirect it, attempt counterpoint or amplification, or point to something interior but he can't lose himself in the smiths signal.

not sayin these ppl can't wear a band shirt for the same reasons as anybody else but ilx and authorial intent etc..

We're not (for the most part) being elitist, pointing and laughing at the "posers" or whatever. We're just posting pictures.

It's the Lead Hipster from Interpol and his similarly indie-sounding solo-ish band, dressed up as metal dudes for a joke. (One of them is actually quite seriously into metal, see if you can spot which one, and actually they were taking the piss out of that guy by dressing like that; but, that band still sounds absolutely nothing like any of the bands on those shirts.)

((I guess maybe it would have been more obvious if I'd picked the one where he is not just wearing an ironic Van Halen t-shirt but also a *trucker hat* for maximum hipster points, but the wall of all four of them is funnier than just the one.))

OH GOD I AM TALKING ABOUT INTERPOL AGAIN, SHOOT ME. This is starting to reach OCD proportions.

But, y'know, hipster boy-dudes in metal shirts don't even pass notice, while the girl-bassist from an actual punk band wearing a punk t-shirt is OMG THE VAPOURS HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE.

Firstly, it's not "Interpol" it's Paul Banks' solo band. Interpol do not *do* t-shirts, or jeans. It is against their ~design aesthetic~. Or, erm, something.

Secondly, I actually have no idea what the name of Paul Banks' solo band's drummer is. Sorry. I totally fail at fangirl. It would, however, be quite funny if Banks' band were comprised of all those hard rock and metalish dudes and yet still managed to sound not in the slightest bit hard or even rock. :-P

Really, I swear to god I was trying to research whether that was Paul Banks' drummer or not, but then I fell into a hole on Tumblr and after 40 pages of haircuts I completely forgot what I was looking for so cheers, yeah?

WAIT. Actually, reading the interview, and remembering tweets from him and various fans and his band, the guy in the photo is Charles, not Seb. The other guy that isn't Brandon Curtis is Damien something or other.

Aw, reading that interview reminded me how much I really like that Banks record. It's a cute record.

Bipolar Sumner (Branwell Bell), Saturday, 22 February 2014 23:52 (five years ago) link

I had hoped for years as a teenager in a podunk town that wearing a Sonic Youth shirt would be a great way to meet likeminded souls

Ha yeah, except my boobs were never worth reading even for guys twice my age, so it never worked for me on even that level. Still tho it's not like I've ever gone the other way and struck up conversation with someone about their t-shirt so I guess I am the problem too.

(OK, I did once: I excitedly told someone in a Kitty Kitty Corporation t-shirt "nice shirt, I love Quickspace and Ligament!!1" at a gig I was sort-of-running and she looked mutely terrified and left the gig before the music started and I suspect never came to any of our other gigs again. Sorry to that person.

I was probably being a gatekeeping asshole myself anyway bcz I was probably secretly hoping they would say "I have never heard of Ligament, you are better at having heard bands than me and I am unworthy of this t-shirt" or sth. I have no idea what this post is even about, sorry)

I have totally, in the past, struck up conversations with random strangers about the brilliant T-shirts that they were wearing! (I also used to drink a lot more heavily in the past, so I would strike up conversations with random strangers over just about anything.)

i will occasionally compliment people on their band tshirts, but because i know in advance that it will be completely weird & awkward, i try do it in a glancing way, so that by the time my comment registers, i'm already halfway out the door (figurative if need be). more social interaction should be conducted in this fashion, imo.

föllakzoidberg (electricsound), Sunday, 23 February 2014 07:20 (five years ago) link

I figure talking *to* someone (note operative preposition) about their T-shirts is fairly relaxed, because it is something they've chosen, a taste marker they are displaying, and hence it's not *inherently* rude to politely compliment.

But like any other human interaction, yes, this is depending on following, y'know, basic guidelines of respect, and before you protest "OMG who would not show respect" realise that there are many many people who do not, or who just think that music fans who code female don't *deserve* that respect. Coming up to me after soundcheck and saying "Great Hawkwind T-shirt, what's your favourite album" would get you a 5-minute conversation on Doremi vs Quark Strangeness and Charm. Standing in front of me as I pack up my big muffs, and loudly saying "I bet she can't even name a Stooges song!" will get you a punch in the nose!

Show respect and treat the person as your equal! Even if they are a musician who happens to look female! And if you find yourself only ever directing t-shirt questions at members of your target gender, but never your own, Don't Be That Guy.

There's a big difference between "wow, that Spacemen 3 t-shirt looks so beat up, I bet it could tell a few stories" (or even "that's a pristine shirt, did they reform or something?") vs the guy who stares at your breasts for 20 minutes before accusing something like "that is in the Spacemen 3 font but it is not a Spacemen 3 t-shirt who ripped it off what a poseur" because they have never heard of Other Music despite being at a drone show. That weird kinda half-bravaggio half-contempt tone that some dudes get when they talk to female persons like I don't even think they realise how gross it is. There is nothing wrong with the thing in itself, but there is a hell of a lot wrong with how some people do it!

Bipolar Sumner (Branwell Bell), Sunday, 23 February 2014 08:40 (five years ago) link

(I mean, what pisses me off about that story I told on the other thread is... y'know, the actual band t-shirts I have got actual shit for, these bands were *not* even obscure or anything. Like, how fucking insulting is it to assume that a musician in a garage band has never heard the Stooges, y'know? That's what made it so over the top sexist.)

Bipolar Sumner (Branwell Bell), Sunday, 23 February 2014 08:47 (five years ago) link

Our Alice (probably about 10 then) saw a Ramones t-shirt in the window of Oxfam Reading, so she cadged the fiver off me and went in for it.

The Scottish guy who runs the shop was a little "Oh, you like the ramones then?" but she gave him chapter and verse about the first album and how "Rock and roll high school" was her favourite film when she was five, etc. He was very "Really? Wow, ok then"

Film That, Nick Hornby!

Mark G, Sunday, 23 February 2014 08:55 (five years ago) link

Yeah, what BB said..

There is that 'hey, justify yr t-shirt' edge maybe, but sometimes people have liked my t-shirt or asked about it and I daresay Alice would get people seeing her wearing it and just assume it's bought in topshop, but as she says "If it has Tommy's name it's probably not a real one"

the drummer is a monster (Scik Mouthy), Monday, 24 February 2014 10:28 (five years ago) link

I know we had this conversation to death upthread but the ideas up there make cardamon want to do some typing, so.

There's something really refreshing about ppl who 'shouldn't' be wearing this or that band's shirt doing so. (Especially if it's a band I like; and even if I've superficially got over teenage rockism.) It's a corrective to the mystique around certain bands – the idea that they are unknown to a largely docile public, known only to an aware group of fans – and the status they have because of it.

It also breaks the false sense of community that can develop around a band, and reminds us that because this thing we like has such universal appeal it can't 'only' be for us or people similar to us.

I'm assuming here that the part of liking a piece of music that has to do with ingroup membership – the part where you're 'a person who likes the velvet underground', or whatever – is like a kind of boring encrustation that distracts from the actual sound hitting your ears, and that it's good to have your sense of affiliation with the people who made whatever music it might be shaken up.

cardamon, Tuesday, 25 February 2014 01:18 (five years ago) link

that's a nice collection if they're not modern repros. i'm not invested in the authenticity of the person wearing the old-timey shirt, just the shirt itself. i always wanna look at the tags; if it's screen stars or spring ford then good job wearing that shirt, whoever you are.

also if a band has cool t-shirts that everybody likes but only a select few can appreciate the music maybe that's the band's fault one way or the other.

yeah they're mostly similarly shaped/ sized v-necks, probably all the same contemporary repro fashion company using the same blanks. assumed the new order at least was real for the reasons mentioned; there are more iconic images to reproduce that would sell better.

or maybe the fact that the music is appreciated by a select few is the very thing that makes everybody like the t-shirt.

tru more often than not, but i was thinking about this idea:

Pop kids these days wear Motorhead or Ramones t-shirts the same way that pop kids wore Bauhaus or Siouxsie and the Banshees t-shirts in the 80s - sometimes, when I'd confront people on it, they'd admit that they weren't even aware that these images/logos were for bands - they just thought that they were logos in the same way as wearing an Ocean Pacific t-shirt was in the 80s (hey, look at me, I'm a cool surfer chick, even though I live 1000 miles from the nearest ocean).

or

Wear a Tshirt of some band you never heard and when quizzed on it talk at length about the sleeve designer and say are you a fan of their work then

the design aesthetic overlaps the music but also exists as its own thing, so the cure logotype or the pc&l cover or whatever become as zeitgeisty as a keith haring image and ends in themselves rather than just functioning as signifiers of a band and the community that surrounds it. i figure if a band exists as a purveyor of visual imagery as well as musical expressions then some people are just going to interact on that level and why wouldn't they if it's good design.

Timbaland is the latest hip-hop/R&B type to be seen sporting a punk rock jacket, his being leather and adorned with Misfits, Dead Kennedys, Subhumans, Crass and the like logos.

The Metal injection website reports on it with some of the snide commentary that we don't use here because we liek that sort of thing.

Alex in NYC brought this to my attention:
Message to Kids: Rush Isn’t Cool

This article by Andy Cush at Spin.com was prompted by Travis Scott wearing a Rush shirt at the Grammys.

http://www.rushisaband.com/images/201902/4243.f.jpg

Even funnier to me is that it was evidently Kylie Jenner's shirt which likely infuriates a lot of people to no end. It certainly upset Alex.

I find the article lame for a bunch of reasons, but they have nothing to do with being mad anyone is wearing a Rush shirt.

I still think the article is actually lovingly praising Rush but either I'm way off or everyone else is misunderstanding it, based on social media.

I don't think a Rush hater would reel off their proggiest deep cuts like that.

I can’t find it right now, but there’s a recent-ish selfie of David Sylvian sporting a black Boris (the Japanese noisegaze band) T-shirt.
