are you an expert

Post by gleecore »

I'm new to forums, so sorry in advance if I'm not doing this right. Anyway, I have a huge collection of vintage tees, but these 3 are a total mystery to me. Google/Amazon/eBay searches come up with nothing. Does anyone here know the origin of these tees? If not, can you point me in the direction of someone who might be able to help?

Delirious Id bet is an obscure 80s video game.

Outrage an obscure 80s band. Although "The rage of rock n roll" brings back nothing.

and Delirium a local, low budget early 80s movie. If you google delirium and put the tag line in quotes "When the monster is man" for an exact hit - it shows a snippet of what looks to be a review in a newspaper?

"Obscure 80s band" - can you tell me more? Genre? Country?

Out of curiosity, what would you say is the retail value of these shirts?

I'm just wagering a guess on Outrage (and Delirious) - but based on the logo and name - hard rock or metal.

It's odd the Delirious has the neck hemmed like that, so maybe another obscure band tee?

I wouldn't put much value on any of them given they seem to fly under the radar. Gotta figure out what they are first - or post them in hopes someone searching on eBay does. But doesn't mean they don't have value - I've sold many tees to buyers who just like the imagery despite neither of us knowing what the t-shirt actually represented.

Use "HORROR" and "MOVIE" in the Delirium shirt listing title.

Okay, JimmyJ might have been right on Delirious too

http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Delirious/1983

They too seem to be a Thrash Metal band out of Germany

Now the Outrage website says they broke up in 1988 and reformed in 2004, while Delirious apparently didnt put out music until 1992, so there might be a bit of a time difference on the Tees - but it looks like the two have Thrash and Germany in common, none the less

(My inclusion of this bad was based off the screaming scull looking head on your tee, which I now see is Delirium one, not the Delirious one... Might not be them! Might be though)

...and to complete the trifecta

Delirium might be this obscure Netherlands Thrash band that apparently tried to make music between 1988-1990

http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Delirium/14033

(this is based off the other two as much as a strong connection itself. Bands songs are inflection of man, it seems, so some connection, but also that requires an assumption. Might not be the band, but if the other two are correct it could be a connection. The idea its a local-movie though is still likely strong too)

...it could also be completely wrong though too! Lol

There seems to be a couple bands with those names (well at least Delirious and Outrage) and the logos arent exactly a perfect match. But as far as our assumed age and themes, it seems to be fairly solid as at least a possibility.

Would the tags give a better indication if they are in fact European shirts, or are concert shirt brands/labels fairly universal even on vintage stuff?
