SPLIT LIP - "I seek life but cannot find it's face" shirt
I can remember the faces of the straight edge kids who were excited about Chamberlain on their European tour them being called Split Lip afore and the incontestable heroes of Doghouse records and even a whole new wave of bands: some guy with long hair and cowboy boots entered the stage. Me being toughened from the change in appearance of Uniform Choice or all New York straight edge heroes I wasn't bemused.
Back to Split Lip, who had really nice shirt designs back then. Here is one example, I sold another one in khaki which had the print above the tailbone (and I want it back!). Native speakers: isn't "it's" wrong? Wouldn't be so bad since I know people who have tattoos which say "straihgt edge" or for example "strenhgt", but it's funny.
I am still looking for both of their demo tapes!!! Maybe someone wants to contribute them to the blog (same goes for pictures of other shirt designs by Split Lip). And: I lost the booklet of the Split Lip digipack CD version of "Fate's got a driver"! If anyone will be so nice to do some scans for me I would post and uploading anything you demand from me! Thanks!
Funny side note: some Split Lip members filled in for impeded members of Hardball for their shows since Split Lip have been friends with them since the beginning. I think that was when Clearsight were still around?
