Regular readers will know that we have been covering the attempts of cheapo fashion retail giant Primark as it attracts a younger, more edgy customer by offering up a range of T-Shirts, cushions etc each adorned with the logo of a respected rock n’roll outfit – hence The Ramones T-Shirts, The Ramones cushion and the PIL logo T-Shirt.
We did question whether the majority of the buyers had a clue as to significance of a particular logo; it seems bosses at Primark have had the same thoughts…to assist their customers they have kindly prepared a ‘Bluffers Guide’ to a selection of bands which you can view on the Primark ‘What’s New’ page…
Packed full of information such as in the case of The Ramones:
Date formed: 1974
Lead singer: Joey Ramone
Key look: Leather jackets and lots (and lots) of hair!
Fun fact: This lot are often noted as the first punk rock group. Ever.
Now, whilst you are all digesting such weighty information prepare yourselves for the lowdown on The Beatles…
Date formed: 1960
Lead singer: John Lennon and Paul McCartney
Key look: THE 60’s suit.
Fun fact: They’re the best selling band of all time in the US. How cool is that!
How cool indeed!!!
We are very excited to read the ‘Fun Facts’ they are going to come up with regarding the next bands whose logo’s might (or might not) be appearing in a Primark near you soon; apparently Cradle of Filth, Whitehouse, Teenage Jesus & The Jerks and Anal Cunt are all being considered…
