New Tees Coming Soon
29th October 2012
Got every Kent CD and vinyl compilation? Bought every TOWN and CITY single? Still need more Kent-themed thangz? Why not stomp yourself silly in this groovalicious garment, designed especially For Dancers Only and For Dancers Also!
Be the envy of your friends as you take to the floor in tribute to your favourite soul reissue label. We can’t guarantee that it’ll improve your dancing, but we DO guarantee you’ll look the business…
The late Ray Dobard’s legendary Bay Area store and 1950s label logo looks as cool as its 45s and 78s on a top notch T that goes down as tastily as a gallon of “W-P-L-J”…
Available in pretty much any size you want - if we ain’t got it, we’ll go out and get it!
Stand out from the rockin’ crowd with a cool T that celebrates Modern Records’ short-lived mid 50s Memphis outpost. No “Raw Deals” here – “We Believe” you’ll look anything but a right “Charlie” in one of these so “Get With It” and get one now! Sizes available to suit even to most expansive rocka-belly…
You'll look "right on the Money" in this spiffing T, which features the logo of one of the most collectable labels in West Coast 60s Soul, and the recording home of such revered acts as the Larks and Bettye Swann. Available in sizes to suit all shapes...
...Why not "Make It Yours"?
For those who might think a “Flash” shirt is too mainstream, here’s an arresting T featuring the straight-to-the-point, no-nonsense logo of that 50s Hollywood label’s rare subsidiary. Ace’s ‘no shrink’ guarantee means that there’s enough room in these babies to cover the most king-sized torso!
Get your shirt, you’ve “Pull”-ed…
Rhythm and Blues Records
Get rhythm when you get the blues! Celebrate this incredibly short-lived early 1950s subsidiary of Modern with a shirt that nails its mission statement to any wall. If a T-shirt came in a tin this one would be the attire equivalent of Ronseal. “Big Ten Inch Record”- style sizes available to accommodate even the biggest calorie collectors…
“Teddy Boy, he’s got them all…”
Who wouldn’t want to be seen dead or alive in this hitbound salute to the UK’s greatest ever oldies emporium? The Camden premises may have gone, but you can still “Rock On” in fine style when you don this groovy garment.
Iconic shop, iconic shirt – wear yours with pride, whatever size you buy!
Show your admiration for a little early 60s New Orleans R&B label with a lotta good tunes by investing in a T which celebrates its brief life with its eye-catching logo!
As colourful and contagious as the Crescent City itself, and available in sizes that will allow everyone to “laissez les bon temps rouler”, no matter how “gras” they might be these days…
Topper Music Corp
“Happiness Is Here” for fans of Dave Hamilton’s acclaimed 60s Detroit soul label and its cherished roster of Northern Soul favourites. We’re not “Trying To Fool” anybody here - you’ll look great in one of these whether you take a “Little” Ann or “O/S” Tolbert size...
“What Should I Do”? Why, buy one immediately of course!
As the foundation label of the whole Ace empire, it’s only fair that Chiswick Records gets to take its place in our luxurious clothing collection. Put yourself in the Driver’s Seat and look more Damned elegant than any of the local Riff Raff when you wear yours to the pub…
What sizes do we got? What sizes do you want?
Central Rocks! Everything will be Jake if you wear one of these to your next Pachuko Hop.
One ofLos Angeles’ most important sources of 50s rhythm & blues comes alive in this snazzy, logo-sporting tee – available in your size and a choice of early Combo red or later Combo mauve, depending on your preferred era.
Oh Mr. Porter, what shall I do? “Buy a Combo t-shirt, son – in fact, why not buy two?”
And here’s the other one. Simple and effective, like Crown albums themselves used to be, and designed to please all those who like to wear their wardrobe in a more modest manner. Comes with the regal endorsement of Sir Lord Ted, first Earl of Spalding, and we can’t say fairer than that…
…and guess what? We’ve got it in just your size! Suits you, sir…
First the Beat Went Public, now it’s the shirt’s turn. Our universally loved imprint for all things jazz-related carries the kind of logo that only the coolest T-shirts were born to sport. If you live at the funkier end of our musical solar system you’ll double dig this hip-tastic garb, and we don’t mean maybe, baby.
Cover yourself in groovaciousness for the price of a few cappucinos. And we got your all sizes right here…
You don’t have to be a king to wear a Crown! Rule your roost in this super high fidelity tee, which features a regal replication of one of two legendary logos indelibly associated with Modern’s renowned reduced-price, long playing imprint. We can’t sell’ em for 99 cents plus tax like Crown albums used to go for, but we do guarantee fantastic value for money nonetheless!
All sizes available and any colour you like within reason….
Big Beat Records
…And the Beats just keep on comin! A further variant on Ace’s rock ‘n’ psych imprint’s well regarded logo for those who like to buy things in threes.

Available in both Big Beat and Little Beat sizes – at a price that truly can’t be beat!
Golden State Recorders

If you’ve already invested in our Money tee, why not splash more Cash on a shirt that celebrates the late John Dolphin’s other important 50s imprint? You’ll look the business in one of these, and we sure ain’t Jivin’ Around when we say that.
