Title: Melvins Shirts...
Post by: grays harbor mafia on September 08, 2008, 06:43:34 PM
So  these items are on ebay, don't know how legit they are i have attached a detaeld descript[tion from the seller...From the treasure chest comes yet another rare and unique item you will look otherwise high and lo to find... This item is a screen print of a classic design borrowed from some Jersey spook that was used as a t-shirt design and sold through Boner Records and the Melvins in the '90's. This 14"x16" black print is on white artist print material and was acquired from the artist for Boner's print portfoglio. The print is in Very Good conditon, there is a bit of a wave to the fabric, yet it is still quite suitable for framing or other multimedia applications. Quite a unique collectors item as this design has been out of print for many years. Ships Insured in a poster tube. Thanks for looking good and bidding!

Anybody Think they are legit??

Nothing legit about it.  Those aren't shirts, they're just reproduced designs of old Melvins shirts on 14 x 16 cloth.

i know they arent shirts.... they are the print used to make the screenprint shirts right?

I could give you better info if I was home and could compare them to the real shirts, but they look similar.  On the other hand, they aren't difficult designs, so they'd be really easy to copy.  I'd send the seller a message and just ask.  From looking at the description, I'd say your getting a good reproduction of a print that was used long ago.  In other words, they are not taken from the original design.  IMO.

i agree, they look rough around the edges like maybe
a negative was made by scanning in the shirts and
reversing it to screen print on the material shown.

Post by: bUTTHOLEmAN on September 08, 2008, 08:07:46 PM
I honestly wouldn't pay too much for them..unless you just really want them.  I've gotten similar things (on a thin board stock) before as record fillers/padding.  Maybe ask Tom Flynn about it?

Post by: cara on September 08, 2008, 10:25:53 PM
prints of those shirts (or at least the second) been sold on ebay before for cheaap. why not just buy a shirt in your desired color/size? it won't be legit but it seems a lot easier.

he has alot more of these, from various different melvins shirts, and the fiend clube one come with the screenprint for the back as well.  The guy has a BUNCH of  melvins stuff.    Im prying him as we speak to see what he has.  What other shirts did the melvins print during the boner records era?  anybody know? 
Title: Re: Melvins Shirts...
Post by: anaconda on September 10, 2008, 08:17:05 PM
they had the eggnog bunnys, the bullhead fruit basket, ozma lady's head,
and the shirt with the KISS typeface that was on the solo records.

if you're referring to the recent re-print available thru cinderblock, i'm not sure.
it has it listed as available in a variety of sizes, although it's on back-order now:
http://www.cinderblock.com/search-results-products.aspx?search=Melvins

I'm referring to the original version of the shirt available thru Boner years ago:

If official means 'having the Melvins involved', then I guess it was only offical when it was part of the Melvins Army. I ordered mine from that one website of which the address has now escaped my memory. I mean www.sickinc.com.

During the commentary on the Fantomas Melvins dvd there is a shot of some guy wearing the Kiss style Melvins shirt and Buzz says something like, "Hey he is wearing one of our shirts!  And it's a bootleg so we didn't get any money from it!"

the melvins did at one point make the kiss shirts, so they were offical when they first appeared.

I smell BOOTLEG!

the best melvins shirt was the singles 1-12 shirt, with the red skull.


my buddy got that and he's a lucky bastard.

I want to make a decent bootleg melvins shirt eventually, I'll let you know, I probly wont sell them because I have too much respect for this band, but my friends all want melvins shirts, and they are hot items.

if I DID sell melvins shirts, it would be a charity thing and all the money raised would be given to the melvins in one form or another, weather it's cracker barrel gift certificates or WW2 memorabilia, or I just use the money I made to buy a box set or something...heh.

that does it, we need a poll for the best melvins shirt! (or has that been done?)

Can anyone say if the Kozik nun shirt was official or not, please?

(http://i925.photobucket.com/albums/ad93/AKV126C/Koziknunb-shirt.gif)

Official as far as I know, I ordered that shirt in the picture through that company Rockabilia back in 95 I think. The longsleeve has the Melvins printed down one of the sleeves, the nun is on the back. I haven't worn it in years, never been big on longsleeve t-shirts. I think I got that melvins shirt with the devil woman from rockabilia too back in the day, it says HELL on the back.

I had a short-sleeve version.  Wondering if it's in one of my many bins of old clothes in my basement....

I got the devil woman one when I saw them open for White Zombie in '95.  I know I still have that one.

Haha! That was an old post! It's in the shirt book, anyway, so that's a good sign. I have the long sleeve pictured and another printed onto a different coloured shirt (kind of marbled grey) that was supposed to have been sold at an art show curated by Kozik back whenever.

Incidentally, the shirts that aren't in the book:

Wizard of Oz
Honky (this was produced in Germany and had nothing to do with AmRep in MN)
Geek Show
2006 Tour Horriblis
See You In Hell
Skull & Crossbones (Essential Monsters)
The Clowns
Jack Johnson
30th Anniversary

 Cool. I have the '06 Tour Horriblis, Geek Show '03, Triple Skull & Crossbones with the "M" & zebra on back(2010), & Jack Johnson. What was the 30th Anniv shirt? The one I bought on that tour was rabbit with gun - "Make It A Cheeseburger".

It's the red & white Nikes that get the most attention. People are always commenting on them. People who know nothing about Melvins but lots about Nikes, mostly. A lad in Newcastle NSW stopped and phoned his mates about them - wouldn't let me leave until he'd took a photo.

Women fawn over the Wizard of Oz shirt but I've not achieved sexual congress as a result of wearing a Melvins shirt yet.

I told this story a long long time ago but..... .kind of, yes.           I was at a show with the wife at a venue down the road.   I happened to be wearing my MEVLINS DOG SHIT 20th ANNIVERSARY shirt.      we had a family medical emergency and had to leave the show to go straight to the hospital.        my wife had some kind of "go out"y shirt on.    like a tank top or something as I recall.    she wanted to look a little less "go out"y at the hospital and was also cold so I gave her the MELVINS DOG SHIT shirt off my back.     I spent the rest of the evening in a jacket with no shirt underneath (hot look!!) and my wife in a shirt with a dog taking a shit.        I believe I did get laid that evening and for the purposes of this story I will assume it was because I gave her the specifically MELVINS shirt off my back.

Usually when people bootleg and rip off Melvins t-shirt designs that myself and Charles Joseph Cardello have worked on, it is some idiot overseas ripping one off. But these clowns are based out of New Jersey and have the balls to rip off two of the designs, all of which are not being made anymore. They also ripped off the Minutemen design we did as well.
So I have to say publicly on behalf of myself, Charles, the Minutemen and the Melvins themselves that these shirts that are being offered are not authorized by any of us, and you should stay away from them. Here is the link and here is the number in case you want to call them up and congratulate them on being really cool, and smart on top of all of that.  Their number is: 240-720-7940 .

Here's hoping one of the Experts might chime in and provide further details about this shirt, Conda would have known or at least given proper guidance. I'm not sure how to take it in right now going over some of his posts that he's truly gone.

...I guess It's a Boner shirt? but no idea of a date and especially Value, I'm certain it's genuine, rare and valuable as a collectors item. I'd like to know in your Experience what Dimension of Frame works best for a T-shirt, I would hate to see it be miscellaneously thrown back into wearable Circulation if something happened to me in the future. I feel like a hipster but it *Has* to be done with this shirt I'm afraid it's Going to only increase in value..er...I mean...*ahem* -It's a truly legitimate piece of the Groups Legacy.

A bunch of the vintage ones are getting reprints....I doubt they're legit but who cares....as long as we support Melvins through buying their music and going to shows I'm sure they'll forgive us buying a reprint shirt from some hustler for £20 rather than giving another hustler £500 for the exact same shirt in lame condition.

Example....
