    Sorry about the sideways pics. I guess the site doesn't like vert pics?
    Super excited to be here and become part of this communities of smarties. I found this vintage faded t-shirt and am trying to figure out what decade at least its from. Done some sleuthing already so I know it has to be 72 or more recent because of the care tags. Thinking 70s or 80s. Wondering when the government started mandating "keep away from fire" warnings. That would be helpful if anyone knows-its on the back of care tag. Tag says Large but its a small in todays men's sizing. Will post pics of care tag and serging. Let me know if there's anything else you might need to ID. Thank you so much!

    We saw Roky Erickson here back in 2006 during the Pop Montreal festival. The show was showcasing an interesting documentary about him and the band. The name of the documentary is You're Gonna Miss Me and it was by Keven McAlester. It focused on Erickson's struggle with schizophrenia and the recent custody battle that tore apart his already dysfunctional family. It's a great movie, chronicling the early days of the band, the extent of their influence on the psychedelic rock scene, and Erickson's abrupt descent into drugs, mental illness and the American prison system.

    They reunited as a band to play concerts back in 2015 after 48 years.

    Cool t-shirt!

    I remember a resurgence of interest in psychedelic 60s music in the mid to late 80s and would guess this from around that era.

    Very true... some GREAT basement tapes were coming out from the dark corners. I couldn't get enough of them.
