    This one’s for all of us who lurked through the singles bins looking for records during the 90’s and could not resist grabbing those somewhat mysterious ones with a minimal DIY manila envelope cover, hand stamped band logo, screen printed cover art, and a whole lot of passion poured into each project. Bands like Heroin, Angel Hair, Mohinder, Maximillian Colby, Shotmaker all spring to mind. This was the sound of a new strain of hardcore; one that had taken the blazing template set by bands such as Fugazi & Rites Of Spring and were trailblazing and burrowing their own way through what was once a rather treacherous domain that was starting to become tagged as “emo.”

    Washed Up (Emo)? Is a brilliant podcast completely dedicated to sitting down with key members from this incredibly fertile time in hardcore history and finding out what memories remain and where did these sounds take us . From the past to the present and to the future, WASHED UP’s host Tom really has presented a gift to all of us who were there with in-depth interviews that will actually take you back to the smell and the sweat of those basement shows, those newsprint zines, and the festivals where you were bound to walk away with not just a few favorite new bands… but more than a few new friends. It’s a pleasure to work together with WU and present this new limited edition shirt. -Evil Jay, Tokyo

    I was first acquainted with Tom Mullen’s “Washed Up Emo” podcast when he asked me to be a guest on the show. I’m not sure I’ve ever used the word “Emo” in a serious context, but as it turns out, “Washed up” covers some of my favorite artists in a very thoughtful and entertaining way. I’ve since become an enormous fan of the program and I’m excited about offering and wearing this shirt. -Charles Cardello/ Bifocal Media
