A Preface---Fashion Fridays with Da Slut

Obviously I love the gear. I do. But, I have decided to do a weekly post devoted to another kind of gear in the world of rawk. IN NO WAY as important as the Rolands or Gibsons or Hiwatts or Fenders or Tamas or DODs or Marshalls. But nonetheless an element of music that offers great springboard for fascinating discussion and debate. An element that depending upon the individual, either has front and center importance or merely carries more peripheral value, a value enjoyed purely on the fringes. A fringe benefit. A whole whack 'o fringe. Like fringe on an awesome cowboy shirt designed by Nudie, the Rodeo Tailor.


Nudie Western Shirt, ca. 1950, Autry National Center, Museum of the American West, Gift of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans

So starting this week, every Friday will be Da Slut's Fashion Friday. I'm gonna save the stellar story of fabulous Nudie for another time. But here he is with perhaps his most famous client:


Sweet Gram, you are so very missed. Your music and style were second to none.

So comin' up I will post the first object of Fashion Friday's affection. Just a warning...will feature nudity and may offend some. But the photo is classic. Iconic. And hot damn, defines an era style-wise. Will cement and bring an end to the great "Let's Be Offensive" week. Sorry Karen Carpenter, Sorry plastic Jon Bon Jovi. Sorry Barney, the town drunk.

Stay tuned!

currently listening to: Spiritualized, Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space
