This classic band tee was made for The Radiators, a New Orleans-based rock band. It's seen a lot of loving over the years, giving it the perfect amount of fade. Features old school graphics and a nice cotton feel.
These guys referred to their style of music as fish-head music or swamp-rock. It blended elements of rock and R&B to get that funky goodness. They remained fairly under the radar during their career with a few chart appearances. However, their appearance in the city of NOLA was well known. Their bouncy party beats were the meshed perfectly with the the city's party life.
The Radiators have pulled a feat not often seen in the world of rock n roll and that's a consistence lineup. The five core members remained in this band from its inception in 1978 to their disbanding in 2011. These talents included Ed Volker, Dave Malone, Camile Baudoin, Reggie Scanlan, and Frank Bua Jr.. They also performed at every New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival during their decades long career.
After over 30 years of making music, the group has a amassed over 300 original songs and over one thousand covers. In 2011 they were inducted into the Lousiana Music Hall of Fame. Their legacy continues to live on through their musical creations, dedicated fans, and amazing memorabilia like this vintage t-shirt.
