Dave Hill's T-shirt Dave Hill presents The Goddamn Dave Hill Show T-shirt
I've been a fan of Danny Hellman's work since I was a little girl growing up in Austria, so when it came time to design a T-shirt for the Goddamn Dave Hill Show, I decided to believe in the power of my dreams and see if he might be up for doing it. Much to my surprise, he said yes! He showed me a sketch of the design a couple days ago and it was so awesome I had to change my pants after looking at it. I don't even want to think what might happen when I'm finally wearing the finished product. I hope you enjoy it as much as I plan to. This T-shirt will be good for wearing in pretty much any situation you might normally wear a T-shirt in and then probably a bunch of other awesome scenarios I haven't even thought of yet.

I've spent the last year huffing the dank musk of rotting boxes, rescuing forgotten, abandoned, and unwanted LP's and 45's.

Doug Schulkind's CD Doug Schulkind's African Twang - Country Songs from the Motherland
The global spread of 78rpm country recordings and cinematic "Westerns" in the mid-20th century led to some far-flung fans of iconic U.S. culture. No more so than in some African neighborhoods where American country music has been all the rage since the the 1950s. Don't believe me? Check out the song Chemirocha from Kenya about Jimmie Rodgers! Meanwhile, in 1960s Congo, fashionable youths where preening at local nightspots dressed like characters in American Westerns.

Capturing the spirit of this peculiar fascination, AFRICAN TWANG presents a collection of astonishing American-style country songs performed by African pop artists. [These tracks were generously provided by Uchenna Ikonne and his blog With Comb & Razor.]
