Green Slime Shop is pleased to present, as part of its OnTour series, this The Lords of The New Church t-shirt from their 1983 autumn tour of their second album Is Nothing Sacred?For this t-shirt, taking advantage of the huge iconography of The Lords of The New Church, we have taken their most representative graphic symbols: The typography with the band’s logo, the dagger with the skull, the group’s logo with the initials of the band’s name. We have also integrated the dates that the band did in Europe in autumn 83 after the release of their second album in September. As always, a very limited edition of 25 t-shirts for men and women from all over the world.
Limited edition 25 handnumbered copies only!

The Lords of The New Church were not a gothic, post punk, post punk band as their name and aesthetic might lead one to believe. You could say that the Lords were a punk supergroup as their ranks included Stiv Bators (Dead Boys), Brian James (The Damned), Dave Tregunna (Sham 69) and Nicky Turner (The Barracudas).
The band's idea was to make money, to succeed, so they made a pastiche very much of the time where they mixed gothic iconography, New York Dolls-style slum rock and roll, punk, Killing Joke-type pounding rhythms, new wave, pop and of course 60s rock, not forgetting that Stiv Bator had just recorded Disconnected for Bomp records, a magnificent work of power pop, and Turner was the drummer of the first Barracudas.
The most interesting stage of the Lords of The New Church is the one they did on the IRS label from 1982 to 1985 with three great albums, full of potential hits that never were and above all a lot of fun and variety in their proposal.
The Lords of the New Church were during those years a very recurrent and well received live act in countries like Spain, France, England, Italy and all of Northern Europe. This t-shirt is a tribute to one of the bands that was the soundtrack of Green Slime Shop's youth.
