Label profile: Danger of Death

by Chris_S on November 12, 2012

Danger of Death class themselves as being aimed at a “more alternative audience”, but as co-owner Nick explains – and I agree with – fans of top-quality illustration might still find something here for them.

The company’s been a year in the making, and they seem keen to do things right. Often, the sort of t-shirts you see at rock shows and clubs can be cheap, faded and poorly illustrated things. Jim and Nick have commissioned some great artists to put out some quality illustrations on tees, hoodies and sweatshirts for their debut line.

A lot of the time with alternative t-shirt designs, you’d feel ashamed to wear them out on the street or in shopping malls. But Danger of Death’s designs just toe inside the line of being too outlandish, while not compromising on the scene’s ideals. They’re not toned down in any way: they’re just admirable illustrations that ordinary people will look on with interest, rather than looking on askance.

Plus, the t-shirts, at £18 each, aren’t that badly priced. We’re going to be getting a review up of the shirts themselves once we get our hands on the product in a week or so. If Danger of Death have caught your eye, keep checking back with HYA to see how they stand up in the flesh.

monsters of grok science t-shirts

I’ve been seeing Monsters of Grok being linked all over the place (initially at BoingBoing), but I didn’t realise that it was a venture by Jeremy Kalgreen, who many of us will remember from Amorphia and Wear Science, amongst other brands. All the designs on Monsters of Grok are famous band logos that have been modified so the name of a famous scientist is in place of band, and it’s is a brilliant concept for a t-shirt. I really like it, and I’m really proud of myself for not only knowing who the bands are, but also just about all of the scientists too!

109 I love NY style t-shirts for you to love

by Andy on December 14, 2009

109

After the success and popularity of my previous list posts such at the 202 Star Wars t-shirts and robot lists (and of course the ridiculously meta list of t-shirt lists), I started saving up links of tees that fit into various categories, but there’s no point me just saving them up indefinitely, so it’s about time I started posting all these lists, most of them don’t quite breach the lofty barrier of more than 100 items in a list, but as they say, it’s not the size, it’s the amount of time Andy spent thinking up the metaphor.

As fasr as t-shirts go, few are more iconic than the design Milton Glaser created to help promote New York (the state, not just the city) back in the 70s. That design has gone on to be used in hundreds of different ways and become part of American pop culture, so it’s hardly surprising that the style has found it’s way onto more than a few t-shirts.

As ever with my list posts, THEY ARE NOT IN ANY RANKED ORDER, the numbers are merely there to keep track of the amount of tees in the list. I say this every time and no one seems to listen, it’s as if you skip the intro and move straight on to all the tees! Also, there are some affiliate linked shirts in there, so it’s possible I will earn money from people buying certain t-shirts on this list, but as I’ve listed just about as many as I could find, it’s hardly surprising that some of the companies have affiliate programmes. Some of the tees in the list are sold out already, and depending upon the success of this post some of them could become sold out in the future, but they could also be reprinted, so in many ways these tees are like Schroedinger’s cat before you click on the link. The list has been split into two pages to make things a little bit easier on my server, but please click through to the second page, because some of my favourites are on there and I think the list finishes pretty strongly, so they’re all worth checking out.

As ever, any exposure you can give to the list (stumble, tweet, delicious bookmark, blog post, digg, ill-considered full-back tattoo) will be greatly appreciated, and I’ll write up a thank you post with links back to everyone that helped in a couple of weeks. Now let’s go love some t-shirts!

It’s probably a little bit inappropriate that this post follows one about a Britney Spears lyric.

Rebel Rock by Chop Shop

by Andy on October 9, 2008


Chop Shop seem to have got in the habit of releasing tees covered in collections of famous people, rock stars, robots, aliens, internet memes, and cars from television and movies. I guess that tees like that are like normal pop culture reference tees on steroids. This particular tee features “31 classic rock, punk and post-punk celebrities whose stars burnt brightest from 1972-1982. Tougher than the last… we believe you will never figure them all.”

I Funk NY by BBP @ Karmaloop

by Andy on April 22, 2008

st001-whtzoom1.jpg

I know that this tee is called ‘I Funk NY’, but I’m pretty sure that if you walked up to anyone and got them to read this tee they’d say ‘I rock NY’ unless throwing the horns has changed its meaning since back in the days when I used to rock hard.

Whatever its name, this shirt is yet another fun twist on the classic ‘I [heart] NY’ tee that still gets so much love from tee designers.
