5 New T-Shirts for Your Music-Savvy Torso


Welcome to the content section of this informational post. I’d like to take this opportunity to inform you of five new t-shirt designs we have recently made available for your upper-half – your better half. First off, we have two shirts from No Age, both featuring a shiny metallic silver ink – futuristic? Yeah, maybe. Second, we have a Sera Cahoone shirt featuring the noblest of all woodland creatures, the mighty stag. Up next, we’ve got a Foals shirt. And lastly but not leastly, we have a Hardly Art shirt featuring artwork from Ghostshrimp.

Mudhoney Day is May 20th - Mark Your Calendars!


May 20th, 2008 is officially Mudhoney Day on the wall calendar in the Sub Pop International Global World Headquarters of America office. I know you’re scratching your head thinking, “How can I, Mudhoney fanatic that I am, celebrate Mudhoney Day?” Well I’ll tell you, presumably inquisitive reader! You pick up TWO new Mudhoney records (and maybe a t-shirt and a poster if you like)! We’re actually quite pleased with ourselves for unleashing The Lucky Ones (CD/LP), a brand new Mudhoney album, as well as a very deluxe, very special double-disc Superfuzz Bigmuff (CD) all on the same day. And due to our penchant for pandering to potential record-buyers, if you pre-order The Lucky Ones by May 20th, we’ll toss in a bonus 7” single. A new bonus 7” single by Mudhoney. And, we’ll toss in Mudhoney-related stickers and a button. So please, help us celebrate Mudhoney Day by turning your money into our money.

If you love the new Foals record as much we do, tend to think you can outdo most studio audiences, are 18 or over, AND will be in the LA area on Friday, May 23rd, then you’ll be excited to know that your golden opportunity may just be around the corner.

That Friday evening, the Foals will be performing on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! and we’d love to see you whoop it with the band and Mr. Kimmel on national television.

Tickets and information are available here.

If you’re not going to be around for Kimmel, worry not—you catch a breeze with the band elsewhere on their upcoming tour.
