DESCRIPTION: Brand new Teen Idles T-shirt (100% cotton, Gildan brand). Charcoal color shirt with Black and White Inks, printed on both Front and Back of shirt.
This is the first official Teen Idles shirt ever produced!! Hard to believe, but it's true - we never made any shirts as a band, and it's only taken 33 years for me to design one! Along with the Dischord shirts you will find on my (Jeff Nelson - Dischord Records, Teen Idles, Minor Threat) Pedestrian Press site, this is the only authorized Teen Idles shirt in the world. Anything else you find is a bootleg.
On the front of the shirt is The Teen Idles logo and a photo (actually a composite of 2 photos) of the band at a bus stop in Texas, en route to California for our first and only tour. Accompanied by our friends Mark Sullivan (singer of our prior band, The Slinkees) and Henry Rollins, we spent $ 600.00 each taking a 3-day trip by Greyhound bus out West and a week later, a plane flight home. We played 2 shows on our tour, and the band made a whopping $ 11.00 in San Francisco and $ 15.00 in Los Angeles (or the other way around), for a Grand Total of $ 26.00. "Dischord No. 1" refers to The Teen Idles' posthumous 7" EP, on the label founded by the band.
On the back of the shirt it says "In the Nation's Capital?", which was used on flyers the Teen Idles made for their shows in S.F. and L.A. Washington, DC was definitely not known for its music scene, and the band was intent on changing that.
I have attached a photo of a size chart to give you dimensions of the shirt, once it has been washed and dried several times.
