A WHITE SHIRT!
I KNOW! What’s going on?
This is a Testament shirt, who for my money were one of the few truly top-notch thrash groups going.
I got this during a show at the much-missed Astoria theatre in Old London town. The band’s brobdingnagian frontman Chuck Billy had recently got over cancer.
I say got over, he’d actually beaten it to death with it’s own shoes. Look at the picture of Chuck above. This pic was taken one month after Chuck had chemo.
He’s a f**king monster, he really is.
Anyway, all I know is, it was a good show, and afterwards we all went to the club that features in the Prodigy’s Smack My BitchUp video.Something happened to apply a brown stain to the shirt which I’ve never been able to remove.
Here’s some soothing night music:

Did you ever buy an album based solely on the cover?
I have an almost uncontrollable urge to do this at times. This is why I own albums called things like ‘Swamp Donkey respirator’ and ‘all robots report to the dancefloor’.
Basically, I’m an idiot.
So obviously, I couldn’t resist getting Sinner’s “The Nature of Evil” could I?
Look at it! It’s got possible the worst werewolf you’ve ever seen,. he looks like he’s just had sex with a can of pedigree chum.
Anyway, this shirt unfortunately isn’t from that album, but one of the group’s much earlier, giant hair and spandex atrocities. But hey, it was in the bargain bin at a festival for one euro, and I was bloody freezing -it’s a long sleeve.
that said, it’s not a bad album at all.
Here they are:
