This Roger Waters and Pink Floyd tshirt has been created from a picture I took (Julie Rae) at that incredible, goosebump inducing, mind-blowing stadium show on 14th September 2013.
The unofficial Roger Waters Pink Floyd tshirt features a photograph of The Wall with the words “You Better Run” graffitied across it while Roger Waters is projected ominously onto the wall just a few feet from the words.
I’ve loved Pink Floyd for more than 25 years. I first listened to Dark Side of the Moon in my car on a borrowed cassette tape as I cruised around America in ’92. I was also really lucky to catch the midnight Dark Side laser show in Philadelphia, just after I’d run up the Rocky steps (ask your parents :-))
I graduated pretty quickly from there to The Wall and pretty soon Pink Floyd and Roger Waters’ Radio Kaos became the soundtrack to my summer in the states.
It took me until 2013 to finally see Roger Waters perform The Wall live and, oh man, what a show! I was so emotional I cried in the first five minutes as the plane ‘flew’ through Wembley stadium and the baby’s cry ricocheted around the stadium.
To uniquely make photograph and tshirt become one, during the design process the pure black was removed from the image to allow the black fabric from the t-shirt to become part of photograph.
It’s an unusual and quirky way to meld photograph and fabric together to create wearable memories of our shared experiences.
This is the perfect t-shirt for any Roger Waters or Pink Floyd fans: those who’ve loved them as long as or even longer than me (I know there’s a lot of you) or those who’ve recently discovered them via parents music collections, a new affection for vinyl or maybe even Spotify.
The colours on this unofficial band tee are vivid, they’re bright and eye catching. Everywhere you go people will ask you where you got your tshirt. Trust me, it happens to me all the time 🙂
These are some of my experiences, they may also be some of yours. They’re the collective consciousness that brings us together, makes us who we are: we are the sum of our experiences.
