New (old) hardcore shirts!

I just got a couple new/old straight edge shirts from a company called Negative Reinforcement shirts.

I've always loved Brotherhood and never got a chance to get one of their shirts. By the time I discovered them, they had already broken up. I acquired a copy of their demo, then bought the No Tolerance For Ignorance 7" from SkateEdge records (on RED vinyl!) Then the Words Run Lp on clear green from Crucial Response. Then, of course, the Cd when that was released.

The Turning Point shirt is sweet. I remember seeing pictures of people wearing this design back in the day. I had a couple of the New Age Records TP shirts after their first LP came out. Always one of my fave SXE bands ever. The demo is still my most loved recording of theirs.

Anyway the quality of these shirts is top notch! Heavy duty cotton shirts, thick, not like those cheap thin ones that fall apart inside a month. The silk screens are clean and professionally done. I very highly recommend getting shirts from these guys!

2011.......THE NEW STYLE!

I think I'm gonna have to road trip out to SoCal for this one!!!! =)

Hello all. Another few months go by and I finally make a post to this thing. I think this year I'll try to keep updates a bit more frequent....LOL

Right now, I'm lamenting the lack of a straight edge scene down here in the Phoenix, AZ area. I'm continually shocked that there aren't any bands, labels or zines here. What the hell is that about???? I guess I'll have to DIY....I did see a car once at a Walgreens down the street from my place that had a big straight edge sticker in the back window. I left some of my SXE stickers under the windshield wiper blades with my email on the back but never heard anything from whoever that was. Too bad. I'd really like to be in another hardcore band but we'll see what happens.

Anyway, that's it for now. Anyone that knows anyone down this way, especially if they are older and still straight edge, please pass this along and have them contact me!
