Back in 2003, Jeff Jank designed these tee shirts for Egon’s Stones Throw Records Stark Reality compilation Now. Our merch partner from those days, The Giant Peach, found a small stack of these as they changed warehouses last month. They sent ’em our way and we’re blowing ’em out. When they’re gone, they’re gone.
If you’ve not heard this band’s wondrous music yet, you can download a track here – and watch a video clip of the performance of the same song on the WGBH Hoagy Carmichael’s Music Shop program, which aired for an unbelievable season in the early 1970s. Imagine being a kid on that show. C’mon now.
Stark Reality’s two essential LPs Discovers Hoagy Carmichael’s Music Shop and Roller Coaster Ride are available as stand-alone LP’s, and come with a download card for all tracks and a digital version of the extensive booklet we presented in our box set.
