The Sorrows T-Shirt
GreenSlime presents this t-shirt of a 60s band from Coventry that represents the wildest side of the British beat that later became known as freakbeat. In Green Slime we have combined the drawing of the “long-haired” crying from their Italian single “Mi Si Spezza Il Cuore” (Take a Heart) with the typography of the Take a Heart also Italian edition but with the original recording in English.

The Sorrows were an English band formed in Coventry in 1963. They performed regularly in English mod clubs and are considered to be one of the leading bands of the mod movement in the 1960s. The Sorrows shared a label, Pye Records, with other similar bands such as The Primitives and The Riot Squad and released a series of great singles that did not achieve the success they deserved. In 1965 they had their biggest hit with "Take a Heart" which reached number 21 in the charts, but soon their singer Don Fardon left the group to pursue a solo career. The band continued with mixed success until the late 60s transforming their sound from early beat, freakbeat and finally a brief psychedelic phase doing their own compositions and covers of Family or Traffic.
