I found this “covert” Throbbing Gristle tee shirt rather funny. But what I found funnier was its description on TeeSpring.com. Read below:
In the good old days music was made like it was supposed to be: with anvils and hammers and slamming car doors. Now you’ve got all these kids with their Abletons and their Winamps who don’t know where they came from.
Help them out by sporting this tee to your local industrial night. You will get meaningful nods of admiration from your peers, and looks of puzzlement and fear from the youngsters.
This shirt is also a great way to smoke out recovering rivetheads on Casual Fridays. Imagine being able to replace tortured smalltalk about the weather with hour long inter-office chat debates about if their favourite band is really industrial.
The shirts are being sold for $25 a pop. It looks like (maybe I’m wrong here) there’s only 50 of them to sell. So far 14 have already been sold.
Below, a bOING bOING TV interview with Peter & Gen & Chris & Cosey shot in Los Angeles during 2009’s brief Throbbing Gristle tour of the US.
