Radio-Active Records Launches Fashionable T-Shirt Line
One way to have a twisted Christmas.
No, County Grind is not a consistent source of couture commentary, but everyone needs a clean T-shirt or a ready-made gift idea from time to time. Since this one comes courtesy of a brick-and-mortar music purveyor, we'll bite. Add that Radio-Active Records' line of T's is not emblazoned with the store's name (unlike this blog posting) and there's something borderline subversive going on here.
Richard Vergez explains:
When asked by Mikey Ramirez to create a new "designer" T-shirt series
for Radio-Active, I jumped at the opportunity to work outside of the
Radio-Active branding. Although the Radio-Active image has a strong
aesthetic, I was shooting for something more alternative and darker. My
Moholy-Nagy. I wanted to give people a nice little work of art they
could go out with and exhibit themselves. For this series, I have
designed two slightly music-related shirts and two purely visual, abstract
type designs, the latter being silkscreened translations of two of my
original hand-cut collages. These arrive just in time for the holidays.
So if you'd rather surf iTunes for digital music clouds, just remember
you can't download a cool T-shirt.
Each shirt comes in men's and women's sizes and costs $20.
