TMBG Shirt #27: No!

Yes! It's No!.. TMBG's first foray into children's music back in 2002 produced this shirt, creating the illusion of perpetual negativity on behalf of the wearer. A child bearing a giant "No!" word balloon seems particularly congruous, given their propensity for just such an exclamation. Similar to, yet different from the album cover, it features the same Chopping Block characters.. which I always thought are kind of creepy looking if you ask me.
The back reveals the source of this childish negativity, featuring more characters from the Chopping Block animated videos on the enhanced CD, including four fifths of George Washington's head. This shirt is available in both adults' and kids' sizes on the TMBG Merch Store, as well as a special version in pink (not only but) especially for the ladies.
MP3 of the Week:
Lullabyes to Nightmares

 Performed at my very first TMBG show, on 4/28/93 at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ.
