Taylor Crass shirt

I thought this was good enough to revive the blog. Don’t know what it is about mixing super indipendent stuff with mega commercial artists that I love so much, but something in me just screams “buy it” even though I’m no fan of Crass OR Taylor Swift. Weird.

More sex and death – this time with Beyoncé


It’s not like it’s all that long since the last time we talked about Sex & Death, but who cares when they do stuff like this? That  yellow on faded black… very nice!

Metal, Star Wars and other dumbass stuff

Chances are, you’ve already seen these – I’m not exactly lightning fast these days. Here are som shirts that I find kinda good, despite the fact that they’re all dealing with stuff I don’t give a shit about: Star Wars, Metal and Metallica. All of this is stolen from Metalsucks.


First, the Metal Warz shirts. I just can’t resist logo stealing/tweaking/spoofing, as yo may know, so I thought this was a lot of fun. Made by the talented Sean Tidy http://tidyink.com/ it comes as no suprise they look really good. If I never see another Slayer spoof shirt again though, it’ll be too soon. Get these here.


Next up, the ‘Tallica shirt. As I said, I don’t give a damn about Metallica, except for when they did the first Misfits cover song, but I dislike Lars Ulrich as much as the next guy so… I gave some brief thought to explaining the joke on this shirt, but seriously – if you don’t know, you really need to read up on popular culture. Go read the Wikipedia Metallica entry or something. Get this shirt here.

Russian vikings

scaldBeing from Sweden, for me, shirts having anything to do with vikings is kind of a no-no. The only ones buying viking shirts in Sweden are tourists and closet racists (I’m sure there’s a few really nice rednecks too, but you get the picture).

This, however, is a shirt for long since defunct Rusian doom band Scald (a band I know nothing of, I can only hope they weren’t racists). I stumbled upon this design when googling other stuff and I must say I really like the cross between the vikings (and the runes) and the ornamental, middle east-feeling lettering at the top. Since I found this in a forum post for a Russian distro, made in 2008, I’m guessing your chances of buying this are pretty slim.

Eken is dead


Yeah, so, while browsing the blog of Weird, I came across this video and instantly spotted the red shirt pictured above. Since it was a Descendents rip off and since I couldn’t figure out quite what it said, naturally I went into obsessive mode. So now, after some googling, I can tell you that this is a shirt by the band Eken is Dead (don’t ask, I have no idea) and if you feel like it, you can listen to them (and, I assume, buy their shirts) at their facebook page. To be honest, I think the band sucks, but I like the shirt.

KLF replica shirt now available!


Finally a faithful recreation of a vintage KLF shirt! You know how many times I’ve posted about KLF shirts – being all excited about the originals on eBay, dissing most of the reprints. Well, if you want it done right, you have to do it yourself. Shirts of Satan have assisted Northern Tyrant in bringing this cult classic shirt back to life and now you can finally own this gem of a shirt without having to pay hundreds of dollars (and without having an ill-fitting shirt you’re afraid to wear, seeing as it cost you so much).


So – yeah – this is both a regular, but very enthusiastic KLF shirt blog post and a shameless plug – live with it! This shirt will be printed on an old school long sleeve tee, the kind all the death metal bands used in the early 90s (and the stadium trance bands too, apparently). There are no less than four prints on this shirt! A gigantic “KLF” on the front, a circled pyramidblaster on the sleeve/shoulder, an oldschool pyramidblaster (as seen on the “grim up north” cover) on the back, pictured inside a circle with a number of Jimmy and Bills monikers. To top it off, the Northern Tyrant logo will be printed on the inside of the neck. Available in white AND black.

This shirt is available for pre-orders as of now and will only be printed (once) for people who have pre-ordered it. Snooze = lose. Seriously: all other newly printed KLF shirts look like crap compared to this so if you’re in to the Ancients of Mu Mu, this is the one you want! Don’t like longsleeves? Cut them off – that’s what you did back in 1991!

Ok, enough yapping. One extra little bonus though: when figuring out what we should call this shirt, we came across the original flyer where you could order this (and other shirts). Check it out:


How to piss off a hipster – wear a the Smiths shirt featuring Will Smith


Well, what can I say? Will is certainly more dear to me than the whiney band is, and fans of the Smiths tend to lack a sense of humor about their favorites, so I like this shirt a lot (though due to it’s whiteness, I would never wear it). Get it here.

Blindead shirts


Ok, so this is less of a “look at these shirts I found” and more of a “do yourself a favor and buy this” post. Blindead Productions is a classic DIY label and distro from Sweden, who put out a 7″ with my band quite a few years back and now the fantastic logo (designed by Stiv from Visions of War) is finally available on a shirt. Buy it here!

Justified and ancient – more KLF shirt madness


Again, my pulse is racing over an eBay auction for a KLF shirt. I did some initial, careful bidding yesterday – to no avail, and while I suspect my opponent’s maximum bid is way over any limit I have set for x-mas gifts to myself, I would love to bid some more. However, until the seller gets back to me with something more presice than “Size Men’s XL or thereabouts”, I can’t justify spending money on something I may not be able to wear. But look at it! The back print – I love it to pieces!

I’ve written about KLF shirts in the past, how popular they are and how strange it is that there ar no well made reproductions of the old shirts, considering how expensive vintage shirts always become. I have recently found a newly printed shirt (below to the left) that I could actually live with so I might buy that for myself for x-mas instead. One of these days though, I plan to faithfully recreate the fantastic shirt I’ve only seen photos of Pixie Geldof wear (below to the right). One of these days…


UPDATE: I didn’t win. I didn’t even place any more bids. The shirt went for 48 GBP, which is a total STEAL!

Famous skeletons


Famous skeletons from Raguyz… Merging famous people (like Lady Gaga and Beyonce) with skeletons and putting them on shirts. My mental jury is still out – it’s not a bad idea but it doesn’t feel super original either – especially when you see their Marilyn Monroe print. Hey, the Misfits did that merge back in the 80’s guys! What I would like, however, is for this to be an ongoing series with not just glamour divas but also, for example, high profile politicians.
