Mosquitohead

Post by bodhi »

Is anyone familiar with the Mosquitohead label? I picked up the shirt below and, while the collar tag is cut out, there is a (c) Mosquitohead 1989 on the lower edge of the print. A quick Ebay search shows this brand mostly printing band and movie related tees (all hand-screened, I believe) that are pretty cool looking and generally quite expensive ($300 for a vintage Sex Pistols t-shirt, $175 for a JFK print, etc). I'm curious about this company if anyone has any background info or experience with them. Also curious about this tee, if its' print has any connection to some pop-culture thing that I'm missing and what a decent asking price might be. Thanks in advance!

Maybe it's the same company as these?

I do believe that's the same company, they seem to still be in business. If you search for "mosquitohead" on Ebay you come up with quite a few interesting designs. The "Satan's Sadists" tee currently listed is just awesome. I think it's Wyco's. I'm curious if this was some sort of high-end boutique brand back in the day, as they don't seem to be terribly common.

Although purely speculation, that's my guess as well. Kind of like what Rotton Cotton or Fright Rags is now.
