T-Shirts, Bumperstickers, Blazin’ Blip Blop

WE FINALLY HAVE some t-shirts (as promised). Check ’em out. When the major labels ran an ad campaign in the early 80s about the evils of tape recorders, some punks turned their slogan on its head and “Home Taping is Killing Music (and it’s illegal)” became “Home Taping is Killing the Music Industry (and it’s fun)”. Now filesharing and CD-burning are the major-label-killer the casette tape never was, but “Home Taping” still has a nice ring to it, don’t you think? Thanks to Andrew Egenes for adapting the tape-n-crossbones logo and Fujichia Records for doing the slik screening.

The shirt is $8 + $2 shipping. When most websites sell t-shirts, they cost at least twice that– we’re making shirts cheap because we want to get the word out. Also new in the extremely-cheap department, bumperstickers:

Just $1.00, including postage– get one for everyone you know who plays music. Thanks to Dennis for the design. The expanding supply of Downhill Battle stuff lives in the Postal Department.


With all the attention we’ve been giving recently to outlaw remixes, we’ve got to shout out Downhill Battle affiliate Burncopy Records’s deliciously illegal and hilariously titled release, Blazin’ Blip Blop and Blar & Blee. It is the party rocker for people who are sick of party rockers. Download it today.
