My oldest surviving Tull shirt is Broadsword era, but I now wear them 2 or 3 times and they they're stored away. But it does remind me of those wonderful merchandise flyers that used to be in the concert programmes of yore
www.chesterhopkins.co.uk/ The only trouble is it's only available in size M BTW If there's a thread somewhere on the forum for t shirts etc. please tell me as my eyes are now like organ stops searching for it
It'll be on ebay sure enough young sir. You just have to wade through all the other Tull items there - what a chore
Hadn't realised this thread was over two years old. How time flies when you're enjoying yourself.
There are a few T shirts that I have which were done for specific occasions. The UK Tull conventions were such a case especially the first in '89 where we had around 300 printed even though the hall the Convention was held in could only hold 200 due to fire regulations. Most attendees at the Convention bought a shirt and the 100 or so that were left were sold at that year's Cropredy Festival by Ian Burgess on the Friends of Fairport Stall. It was the profit from the shirts which allowed Graham Smith and myself to recoup our initial outlay and "break even" even after sending a donation to the NSPCC.
I still have one of those Tull "flute badge" things, although I call it a tie clip, it has two pins with the usual pinch clips tie clips have. I used to have an original TOTRTYTD yellow T-shirt but that's history. I still have a black one with the stick/bag hiker image, but I forget what tour that's from. I also went through half a dozen copies of the vinyl Aqualung because our turntables at the time had tonearms with substantial capacity to erode surfaces they touched.
futureshock: "Macropod". That sounds like the ultimate. "Hello, my name is J.P.Carruthers, Macropod, Intended At Large. My podcast is in Wales. I play the glass harmonica in 7 languages and edit outgoing Sumerian braille. Please leave a message."

maddogfagin: Macropod sounds like an overlarge ipod, as opposed to a minipod used by small furry animals.

steelmonkey: I am seeing the great Richard Thompson tonight at a stand up venue, the Venerable Fillmore in SF. The gig should be fun... I should be strong.

futureshock: Ages ago, I saw Mr. Thompson at the Vancouver Folk Fest, but I worked fence security and was far away, couldn't hear much. Just being there was amazing though, near the musicians all weekend, saw amazing things. Live music is BEST!

steelmonkey: 'Tragic busy at work but celebrating 44th anniversary of best Tull show ever: Feb. 5, 1975 in El Paso,Texas, one of two gigs inserted in between the famous, 5 night run in LA. Listened to War Child and think 'Two Fingers is better than 'Lick Fingers'.

maddogfagin: War Child is a great album, criminally underrated in the music press but loved by the vast majority of fans.

ash: I really like War Child. Skating Away plays every time I boot my PC
