In a former life me and the Cowboy wrote and produced Vicious Kitten Fanzine. Nine issues with a total print run of 10’000 copies which was no mean feat. It was free from record stores in all major Australian cities. Why free ? Ever see a dusty, three-year old zine sitting in a record store with a $2 price tag ? That was why. Free was the magic price. It enabled kids who might’ve dug other musical styles to grab a copy and maybe discover some of the cool rock n roll which Vicious Kitten championed (and remember that in 1995 – writing about Birdman, Thunders, Dahl, Wells, Masuak etc etc was deemed ‘not very hip’ – at least not by the supercool indie street press or the supercool staff at Triple J). The front of the shirt was the cover art of issue #4 which featured a late-80’s image of the aforementioned Klondike Masuak and his partner in crime Zeus Kannis. Several of these shirts got purchased and I’ve got images of Jessie The Intruder wearing one at a Turnbuckles gig and Nick from San Francisco’s Jack Saints also sporting one – will try and find them. Is this now classed as retro wear !?
