Green Slime Shop presents the t-shirt of one of the most representative bands of the English indie scene, Felt. For the creation of this T-shirt we have recreated the magnificent cover of their second album, The Splendour of Fear, which recreates with some modifications the poster of Andy Warhol’s film “Chelsea Girls”. For the design of this t-shirt we have respected the typographies of the original edition and several reeditions but leaving intact, except for the title, the original poster of Chelsea Girls, since the label Cherry Red (or Felt) in the original edition changed the sign of Chelsea Hotel for the name of the band and the title of the album, we have passed this information to the back of the t-shirt so that the poster looks in all its splendour.
Limited edition 25 handnumbered copies only!

Felt are an English band with a very personal indie pop style who were born very influenced by the American band Television, in fact, and especially in the first two albums, Felt's guitarist couple, Lawrence and Maurice, could be said to be the English Richard Lloyd and Tom Verlaine. Their first three albums were based on long suites with intertwining, hypnotic guitar passages indebted to both Quicksilver Messenger Service and Television. Later, after Ignite the Seven Cannons, Felt began to make more regular, non-instrumental pop songs of conventional length.
Green Slime Shop, which as always has a favourite stage, stays with the Cherry Red Records stage or rather with Maurice's stage as second guitarist, that is to say until Ignite the Seven Cannons. Their later albums, although interesting, don't have for us the special sound of their first albums and the substitution of Maurice Deebank's guitar for the omnipresent keyboards of Martin Duffy took away part of their personal style for one more of the era. It is for them that we have chosen the magnificent cover of their second album, The Splendour of Fear, to make this t-shirt that we hope you like.
