Frankie Goes To Washington

Defunkd’s exclusive collection of vintage t-shirts for sale at reasonably exorbitant prices.


Item #2: Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Two Tribes T-Shirt

Record: Welcome to the Pleasuredome

Track: Two Tribes

Year: 1984

Circulation: Frankie say not a lot were printed. Don’t believe us?

While Relax was topping the charts and being banned for its sexually suggestive lyrics F.G.T.H released their politically provocative Two Tribes song. The track’s similar sound piggybacked on the success of Relax and even had a don’t “shoot” message of its own given the cold war theme. In ’84 Reagan was at the height of his popularity and only a few years removed from an assassination attempt – you can bet Frankie had their sights set on causing a stir with this tee.

Brand: Fruit of the Loom

Measurements: 18″ (pit-to-pit) 26″ (rear collar-bottom seam)

Condition: This item is in excellent vintage condition.

Variables: Item has retained a nice clean white color with no rips or holes. Extremely subtle marks on front collar.

Available for purchase here.
