CoCA Show T-Shirts, 1989 (Nirvana, Mudhoney, and friends)

Posted: October 19, 2011 in T-shirts

From one amazing weekend in August 1989 (from designer Jim Sorenson):

  1. Jim Sorenson says:

    Designer? Well, the Sub Pop logo existed already, the font is from the original, much cooler version of the Loser logo (Futura Extra Bold Condensed), and all the type is just Letraset presstype done in lines, and centered up. If that’s design work, well okay.

    It matched the Sub Pop branding, anyhoo.

      Hi there,
      My friend was in Dickless and I was wondering if there is anyway I can get one of these shirts?

      • Stephen Tow says:

        Melisa, Jim Sorenson designed those shirts and I would try him. I don’t have any direct contact, but you should be able to find him on Facebook. I got the shirts in exchange for a book…basically, he felt sorry for me after I had my glasses crushed at the 2008 Green River reunion show and lost out on a chance for the notorious “Ride the Fucking Six Pack” shirt. Good luck.

        Re- Dickless. I had the hugest crush on Kerry Green after I saw her play that night. The next summer. took a day off of my lumber mill job and I drove 700 miles round trip from NE Oregon to Portland to see them play at Satyricon. That band rocked so hard but also made me laugh because they were so sweet despite the ferocious sound they made. Felt so lucky to be in Seattle that one summer of 89 and to have somehow caught wind of the COCA show. A highlight of my life.

    What was on the front?

  3. Marie says:

    Hey, cheers for answering! I didn’t expect that at all!!! Do you have a picture of that? And more importantly, is there a way I could get my hands on one of those?

  4. Marie says:

    Just added you on FB, btw. Hope that was okay. It appears we’re sharing quite a few friends πŸ˜‰

    I was at both those nights concerts. Such fond memories. I still have the shirts, but they are very much the worse for wear. I also had a huge crush on Ms. Green from Dickless. I once drove 340 miles from NE Oregon to a show of theirs at Satyricon in Portland. Those were great times.
