thiscloseGot a new shirt. I love this shirt in so many ways. To begin with, it’s a good quality Gildan shirt and the print is nice and thick (which works good on a print with so few large white areas), but that’s not it. To appreciate this shirt, there’s a few things you need to know. You need to know about the band Discharge. You need to know that once upon a time they decided to change their style and go from d-beat punk to some sort of hair metal. You also need to know about the band Disclose, and their relationship (worship) to Discharge. You also need to know that Thisclose is a band that plays hair metal era-esque Discharge music, with funny lyrics. Finally, you also need to recognize the old Discharge graphics with three skulls. Why they’ve been replaced by deer skulls? I haven’t got a clue – maybe there’s even more you need to know about this, but I’m guessing it’s because they’re from the highlands or something? I don’t know and I don’t really care – I love deer and would have bought this shirt for just the graphics.

Check out Thisclose on Facebook and Bandcamp. The shirts may be sold out as I got one of the last ones, but hopefully they’ll print more. Well, actually, since I have one, I’d be happier if they didn’t, but…. you know.
