Four New T-shirt Designs Now in Stock

By Ginger Slim

What better way to push back against the big grey days that have seemingly taken over our lives, than with a new range of sweg drenched t-shirts. There are a total of four new designs on offer, kicking off with the official MANNYFORNIA tee, in honour of Black Josh's most recent album. It features the album artwork on the front, with the tracklist on the reverse. They're available now over at the shop.

Next up we've got a fersh FUNKADELIA design for you acid freaks and hippy kids out there. A take on the old Funkadelic designs of yesteryear, it's the perfect way to remind your parents of when they used to be cool. It comes in white, with that striking design on the reverse and a Blah Records motif on the front. They're available now from the store.

The next new design is a homage to the Extreme Championship Wrestling ogo, complete with barbed wire fill. It comes in black with a potent pink Blah logo on the front, representing BCW. They're also available over at the shop.

And finally, we've got the Blah Paint Drip t-shirt. This one features a small Blah logo on the middle of the chest and a large Blah Jar design on the reverse, complete with paint drips. It's available in burgundy and you can cop them over at the store right now.

Blah Vs. Blah: 5-A-Side Special-Blah Records

To coincide with the merch drop, we thought we would stage a little 5-a-side footy match for the Cult. As you can see from the photos below, it was a huge success and I doubt it will be long before you see some more familiar faces in the Premiership. All credit to Harvey for the photos (IG: @hwfpht).

Black Josh - Mannyfornia (Stream)-Blah Records

Some good news amidst the current global shit show, as today marks the release of Black Josh's latest solo album. I say solo, but it is really a collaboration with fellow MCR resident and LEVELZ affiliate, Metrodome, who is at the helm for the production. If you've heard the singles in the run-up to the full release, you will already have a taste for the flavours that these two put together - namely bass-heavy bangers, but with enough variety to keep you hooked. A stack of tight features too, with Josh getting assists from Sleazy F, Lord Apex, Yibby, [KSR], Lunar C, Coops and more along the way. You can stream the album in full below and other streaming/download options are available from the usual spots. You can also cop a limited edition vinyl version over at the shop.
