Black Flag — Jealous Again with sst tags
original my war black flag with SST tags
When Henry Rollins decided to do his Benefit for the West Memphis 3 aka the Black Flag Reunion tour, Greg Ginn did one on his own in Los Angeles aka the benefit for cats.
I remember one time Greg was touring the country and playing his back catalog in people’s basements. I saw this atrocity in dc at club asylum…
Any who after Rollins did his tour which was great it brought awareness and funds for his cause. He even brought some of the former members out with him like Keith Morris. At the DC show Ian Mackaye even came out and sang rise above.
My friend Jason Scheller went out in 2003 to the Palladium in Hollywood to see Greg Ginn plus others do the first 4 years aka the benefit for cats. He told me it was one of the biggest pieces of shit he has ever seen….. too bad
Well here is that shirt from that benefit….
JASON SHOWED ME THIS ORIGINAL DRAWING FROM BRIAN WALSBY WHEN HE WAS IN DOUBLE NEGATIVE. BRIAN JUST SET UP AND FOR 10 BUCKS HE WILL DO A PERSONAL DRAWING. HERE IS A DRAWING OF THE HENRY ROLLINS AND BLACK FLAG.
Mike V’s company Elephant Brand just made a limited edition of the classic Black Flag My War design. I personally like this design more than the one I got from SST. The design is on the back and the color of the shirt is dark blue as opposed to sky blue. This shirt will look cool after a ton of washes. I ordered the skate deck as well…..it hasnt arrived yet…
GOOD FOR YOU is Greg Ginn (black flag) and Mike Vallely (pro skater) doing a collaboration. To me it sounds like Black Flag.
I know allot of people already hate this, but for some reason I actually like it. In fact I think its awesome its really drawn out and if I was living back in Los Angeles I would have gone to the record signing at Dirty Mick’s in Long Beach. I am a sucker for all things Black Flag. I went to last years Golden Voice anniversary show (thanks chad) and they were pretty awesome. I also saw Rollins do his collaboration at the 930 Club of Black Flag songs and it was awesome. I also like OFF. Too bad this doesnt come with a download code or a lyric sheet, but it is on color vinyl so for 9 bucks it was worth it. This record makes me miss all of my friends in LA.

Its in my blood t shirt. I picked this from SST when I ordered the GOOD FOR YOU lp. I have always wanted this t shirt but never picked it up. I never seen them live but what always a fan and I got into them when Big Craig from Time Flies would blast their music in the Van. I only had their release on wishing well and barely listened to it. But in my opinion Take the Manic Ride and Its in my Blood are some of their better material.
