This kind of started as a Three's Company shirt... but ended as a Fu Manchu shirt...
it's official... we're completely hopeless music junkies.
We all know and love the zany sitcom starring Jack Tripper and one time landlord... Mr. Roper... but when we had to write the description for this tee shirt... we had to choose between the fuzzy stoner rock of fu man chu... or the warm buzz of the 70's television screen.
Well, you have your answer... fuzzy Fu it is.
You see, this FuManchu inspired shirt comes from over a decade of listening to stony desert rock bands like Josh Homme and Kyuss, Eddie Glass in Nebula, Brant Bjork and The Bros, John Garcia's Slo Burn (and Unida, and Hermano) and many others 70's style stoner rock bands (such as Sleep's Holy Mountain, Electric Wizard and the legendary band Clutch)... and that's almost as long as we watched Terri, Cindy and Janet bounce around on Three's Company... but when push comes to shove... music always wins.
I mean, who doesn't love watching Larry and Jack try to make all the chics... fail miserably... then fall over the polyester couch and try again?!? ...hello? I didn't hear anyone.
Well, I suppose the root of the problem is that a Three's Company episode is only 30 minutes... while a Fu Manchu album is generally an hour ( and fuzzy! )... that pretty much wins the argument... an hour of fuzz always beats-out 30 minutes of corduroy slapstick... 3's Company may have won if the show included more Van's checkerboard slip-ons or 70's Conversion Vans (with fuzzy dingleberry interiors and a naked Aztec women airbrushed on the side)... but alas, that's just not the reality of the situation.
Being a huge fan of vintage underground rock bands AND polyester comedy shows... this has been a very tough decision to make... we (the management) sincerely hope you all understand that Fu Manchu very likely had the infamous television nightclub in mind while writing their fuzzy Regal Begal goodness... so don't call us liars, that would be way too heavy and far-out for us to dig on... we're not out to get you man, it's a peace and love kinda place around here.
So this is it... no matter which way you swing, there's a good chance everyone will appreciate this KILLER Fu Manchu / Three's Company shirt... we know Mr Roper does!
People of earth, stay rad!!
