This awesome cropped tee is for the American garage rock band, The Fleshtones. In 1984, the Fleshtones line up consisted of Peter Zaremba, Keith Streng, Jan Marek Pakulski, Bill Milhizer, and Gordon Spaeth. The band was never commercially successful but they had a huge cult following. American Beat '84 was the name of their tour but also one of their singles that came out in 1982. However, they did rerecord the song in 1984 for the movie Bachelor Party, starring Tom Hanks. The Fleshtones were from Queens and they routinely played at the Pyramid Club in the East Village. They were also instrumental in founding Wigstock, a drag queen festival that's become a staple in the East Village neighborhood.
Tag says large but fits like a modern unisex adult medium. This is a half shirt, please check measurements. Large graphic on the back, see pics.
