Comment of the Moment + Shirts of the Moment

Sisters Kathy & Susan
Harrisburg, PA - August 2016

As we announced earlier, all of the Thrasher's Wheat Anniversary T-Shirts (ROUND #2) have now been shipped. And folks are already starting to report their safe and happy arrival.

Here's a happy TW shirt owner and long time passionate Neil Young fan Alan in Seattle, who commented:
I love my shirt and I will be taking photos @ Boise show.

I am ready to go to Heaven, a.k.a., a live Neil Young show! This will be my 17th Neil Young show. I first saw him at age 19 on the Bluenotes tour. Again with Crazy Horse in '91. Solo shows, & with Booker T and the MG's. Holy shit they were good! Chills up my spine for DBTR. Dock of the Bay was so fun to hear live. I saw him 10 times in 1996, incl. 6 at the Old Princeton Landing with Crazy Horse. I tell you, that was Epic.

I was 3' from Neil, as he stood on a 6" stage and played 4 tracks from Zuma and amazing stuff from Stars n Bars. Bite the Bullet! And Like a Hurricane. I tell you I am just as excited to see Neil play the Boise show as those others. He is incredible. The man essentially helped invent Punk Rock in 1973 with TFA!

In Boise, I predict a 20+ minute version of Down By The River. I am expecting more Environmentalist songs in the set as Neil has recently visited the Standing Rock Sioux, rising to protect their own water supply from Oil Co's that foolishly plan to build a pipeline under the Missouri River, drinking water for the Natives and millions of others downstream. What the Fuck is Wrong with this country to turn around and screw the natives AGAIN, having broken every other treaty the white Americans made with the natives.

The Point is, lets not be stupid and destroy our OWN water supplies! Lets protect water as if it was worth more than Oil, which it IS! Fracking and idiotic legal and illegal pollution is destroying the natural climate, waking a Giant called Mother Earth, and she is PISSED. Lets watch and see how many more "1000 year" storms we see this year.

But I digress.

I will be there at the Botanical Garden in Boise, in Euphoric Bliss, watching my all time favorite Rock God, wield Old Black, and crack open the heavens in a Reign of Glory. Yes, the Godfather of Grunge is about the BLOW UP these shows with Happy Thunderbolts, as we have come to expect of him. He is doing these warm up shows on the way to Desert Trip, which I am glad to avoid, for a much less expensive, more local alternative venue. And to see him again with his incredible band, Promise of the Real! Someone said they got better as the tour progressed. If they play as well this time as they did a year ago in Seattle, I will be in Nirvana, once again.

Thrasher: A BIG "THANKS" for so much hard work with skill, good writing and ideas, & creative mastery of all things Neil-related & of interest to his fans. Thanks for doing what you do! We Neil Young fanatics are very grateful and the T-shirt idea and operations was a fantastic way to celebrate all these years of hard work, patience, head scratching (I can imagine), when you hear from biased or negative perspectives in the comments.

You endure, just as our favorite guitar hero Endures.

And, yes, thank you for the info on Archives 2. Of COURSE we want to know about it! Don't let anyone else speak others. In closing, We enjoy the artist in the Now, where he lives, plugged into the Muse, and playing with one of the best bands he has ever played with, mining the deep catalogue, playing more complicated masterpieces he may not have thought he would play again, after losing Ben Keith, for instance.

Best to get to another show while I can and enjoy this amazing and prolific Force of Nature, Neil Young. Long May You Run.

Alan in Seattle
Alan -- as always -- love that passion. Thanks for all the support and proudly flying the colors.

We'll see you down the road.

Awesome Richie! So happy we got you taken care of.

Sorry for delays and hassles.

As we've mentioned before, each shirt is uniquely crafted individually.

Like snowflakes, no 2 are alike.

They've been hand crafted in Hawaii by former Dead Heads, made their way to TW HQ 2500+ miles, and then on to you another 1500+ miles. So half way around the world.

Enjoy and wear your TW pride and fly your flag load & proud.
