Dayton: Rockathon Records, ca. 1992. Screenprint. Tag of shirt missing, likely size L. Very good. Item #5367
Early Guided by Voices t-shirt produced to coincide with the release of the album Propeller. Released in 1992 in a pressing of 500 and a unique, hand-made design for each cover, Propeller brought Guided by Voices to a national audience after a decade as an Ohio bar band. Features a design of two people boxing, of which variations appear on a few of the Propeller handmade covers. A scarce truly lo-fi shirt, made just before the band’s explosion in popularity led Rockathon Records to scale up and mechanize its production processes to handle the increase in orders. Likely screenprinted by Pete Jamison, the band’s manager and merchandise-maker.
