Spectrum UK acid house rave 1988

Post by charibancho » Tue Apr 22, 2014 4:43 am

First post so hi all

I've had this forever, got it 2nd hand in the 90's. Full of that sweet vintage softness...no idea what it's worth. Pit to pit it's 56cm, collar bottom centre to bottom hem 63cm.
Looking back on music history and dance culture now I feel like it should really be in a museum or something. Any ideas most welcome

whoa, nice one! strangely there isn't a huge market for old rave / acid tees.

I recently won this Genesis '88 acid house t-shirt on eBay for
£5.00.

Also evident by all the ones we have in our in-house shop that don't sell very frequently. Although admittedly priced high because I don't mind holding on to them.

Especially strange because these tees just aren't that common - usually got worn to death and didn't last - or were purged from closets when the event goer grew out of the scene. I remember tossing my rave tees thinking, "yuck" at one point. Then 20 years later kicking myself for doing it.

I'd be willing to trade you for some tees if you're up for it.

Hi Jimmy J, thanks so much for taking the time to reply...yeah kind of makes sense I guess. Thing is I still dj now and again and love the music, well more the updated version anyway, makes me think....I might just do something bizare and ...wear the thing! Not yet though and your offer of trades was very cool, I'll message you.
