Turn On... To T-Shirts
I picked up the quasi-new Turn On, Tune In, Lookout! DVD yesterday. It's pretty great. I never even knew half of those songs had promotional videos filmed for them.
An interesting thing to note about it is that as you watch the videos, you notice that members of some of the bands tend to wear t-shirts bearing the logos of some of the other bands; more often then not they're the logos of bands who are/were also on Lookout! Records. Dr. Frank's wearing a Hi-Fives shirt in one MTX video... Jym's wearing a Donnas shirt in another. Once, I thought I caught a glimpse of a Riverdales shirt. Every member of the Queers wears a Ramones shirt at some point, possibly even layering up with two or three at a time for some scenes. The Ramones were never on Lookout! Records. So there goes my "rule." Well, there were more examples of what I'm talking about, but I don't remember them now.
Anyway, go buy the DVD. It's great, and if you're not blind, deaf, or a stupid jerk, then you'll want it.
