It’s time for a Spring clean! With so many great t-shirts hitting the shelves daily paired with an exciting warehouse move on the horizon…..we’re looking to clear some space! SO, what does your fave t-shirt destination do in prep for such an occasion? Shall we all wear 134 t-shirts every day? Nah. Shall we make a massive blanket out of them? Nah. Shall we hold a SALE with clothing starting from £2.99? We have a winner!
Hello Rolling Stones Tour! #StonesNoFilterThere are some announcements we pay way more attention to than others…BUT, when The Rolling Stones announce a UK and Europe tour for 2018 (with a high chance of them being near enough for us to attend), boydo we suggest you listen. As in, put your lunch down, open your jaw for a few moments and frantically scroll to the dates allowing you to work out which date has your name on it.
It’s the bands return to the UK after a 5 year gap, so it’s time to choose your fave tee, get the moves like (you guessed it) Jagger, and rock up to one of their shows in style.
Here’s a reminder of your fave Rolling Stone’s t-shirts from Amplified, all available to purchase from TruffleShuffle right now.
Here at Truffle Towers, music is a pretty big deal. Whether it’s fighting over what’s being pumped out into the office (classic All Saints does generally appear with mixed reception), or deciding which songs should appear on our helpline hold music playlist, there are always plenty of different opinions flying around.
With all this commotion, there is always one time when the HQ can truly come together and that’s when we get to pick the latest Band TShirts to hit the site!
Taking our latest batch from the mighty Amplified Clothing, take a peep below at some of our favourite designs that are fresh off the press and hot to trot…
Bananarama, the ultimate 80s girl group, got many a nostalgic pop fan whipped up into a frenzy when they announced a reunion earlier this year. Almost 30 years after she left, Siobhan Fahey has reunited with Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward putting all the water under the bridge and they’re off on a nationwide tour selling out arenas left, right and centre! Considering all our love and expertise in all things fun and retro we couldn’t very well miss out on this spectacle could we!? Imagine our delight when we managed to secure tickets for our local venue, the Colston Hall in Bristol, and last night was the night when all our Bananarama dreams came true!
The stage was set with moody synths and a dramatic entrance from the girls in shimmering tight black outfits complete with angular shoulder pads (in what must have been a bit of a nod to the power dressing of the 80s!) to one of their classic tracks Nathan Jones. It was clear straight away that their music had been suitable beefed up and highlights such as Cruel Summer, Robert De Niro’s Waiting, I Want You Back, Venus and I Heard A Rumour sounded really fresh and modern but still instantly recognisable.
The chemistry between the three of them was electric and Siobhan Fahey joking about how it took her faaar too many years to realise how much she missed the other girls was a really sweet moment. The three of them also performed the hit Stay which was originally by Shakespeare Sister (the band that Fahey formed with Marcella Detroit after leaving Bananarama) which must felt like a ‘coming full circle’ moment for Siobhan.
The encore of Love In The First Degree seemed to come far too soon and the almost 2 hour set felt like it was all killer, no filler. It really was a masterclass in bringing a vintage act back with a bang, let’s hope they don’t call it quits again after this tour as I would love the chance to see them perform again!
What more is there to say about Prince!? Hugely admired and respected by music fans and critics alike, Prince was a musical powerhouse during the 80s scoring hit after hit with his catchy singles combined with a flamboyant stage presence and extravagant dress sense.
He was arguably the biggest pop star on the planet during that time (with tough competition from Michael Jackson and Madonna!). Purple Rain, When Doves Cry, Let’s Go Crazy, Raspberry Beret, U Got The Look, how can you choose a favourite single of his when there’s so many classics to choose from!?
We’ve got a huge selection of Music T-Shirts at TruffleShuffle and it made me very excited when we got the opportunity to add some Prince T-Shirts into the mix.
Purple Rain was his sixth studio album and the first to feature his band, The Revolution. It was also the soundtrack to the film, Purple Rain, which is an absolute 80s classic. It features the singles When Doves Cry, Let’s Go Crazy and of course the legendary title track, it certainly has it’s fans as it’s the third best-selling soundtrack of all time! Pay tribute to this classic album with our T-Shirts which feature the moody and atmospheric cover art.
Featuring the classic Prince logo against his favourite colour, purple, this classic tee will really make you stand out from the crowd!
Take Me With U was the fifth track to be taken from the Purple Rain album and this tee features the cover artwork in all its fabulous eighties-ness! “I don’t care where we go, I don’t care what we do, I don’t care pretty baby, just take me with you!”
