Recently, Rolling Stone ran a listless, uninspired feature called “The Most Iconic Rock T-Shirts Ever?” T-shirts exhibited included a few from the Ramones, an old Sonic Youth rag, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, among others. Yeah.
The lacklusterity (made up word) of the RS feature compels me to submit the following. It is a HAWKWIND (please note the shimmering, floating, metallic female statuettes) t-shirt from the famed XENON CODEX tour, which came through First Ave in 1989. The shirt was given to me by Uncle Con at one of the family Christmases of the early 90s. Please don’t get too excited.
GOODBYE, ROLLING STONE.
