Green Slime Tshirts launches the T-shirt of one of the most iconic bands of the 80s, The Smiths. For this we have chosen one of their most iconic images, the cover of their second Lp from 1985 Meat is murder which was a still from the 1968 documentary “In the Year of the Pig” by Emile de Antonio.

For the design of the T-shirt we have left the powerful image of the soldier in the Vietnam war and removed, as on the album cover, the original slogan “Make war not love” from his helmet and replaced it with “Meat is murder tour” with the same letters as the original album cover. We have also given it the same colour tone as the vinyl copy that came out in Europe. Also on the back cover we have used the same two typographies and colours used on the album for all the information about the band, tour name and dates. As always this design is printed on a top quality Stanley/Stella organic cotton t-shirt with a superb feel.

Limited edition 25 handnumbered copies only!

In February 1985 The Smiths released their second album, Meat is murder, which illustrates this Green Slime Shop T-shirt, which although it is not the best group of songs by the band is a very important LP for the undersigned because it was the first album by the band that he acquired, in cassette format, and it is therefore a very special album. The cover of Emile de Antonio's documentary is a very powerful image that Morrissey knew how to give his personal touch with the vegetarian and political ideas that the singer began to make public after this record. Curiously, although this album, obviously a personal opinion, is not their best moment, it reached number one in the UK, making the group more famous locally and worldwide, although the real gems were released little by little in their singles. For example, How soon is now? a hit at the time, even in discotheques, came out practically at the same time as Meat is murder with the B-side of the wonderful Well I wonder, which is included on the album.
