The long awaited debut LP from NYC’s FLOWER “Hardly A Dream” is finally set to arrive.
FLOWER’s tedious approach to writing/creating/drawing their debut LP was carefully thought out and the result is a monumental anarcho punk /crust record.
“Hardly A Dream” Takes us on a bleak journey through the dark side of society. As soon as you drop the needle a dark atmosphere is immediately created with a slow intro featuring arpeggio guitar work that builds into pummeling d-beat crust. The albums vocals then leave you with a feeling of being crushed by the ever-present weight of living through our modern world of late stage capitalism that was built on the falsehoods of the so called American dream, religious hypocrisy’s, nationalism, and the greed of humankind.
FLOWER take many cues from predecessors and are most often (and rightfully so) compared to NAUSEA but they also take a heavy influence from ANTISECT, SACRILEGE & other greats. The artwork has a very RUDIMENTARY PENI feel and the record comes with an amazing 24.5 X 34.75 CRASS style poster jacket. All art work was meticulously hand drawn and overseen by the guitarist Willow in true DIY style and spirit. Willow was also cool enough to draw up a special shirt for the record release featuring an alternative PROFANE EXISTENCE backprint!

i can’t make it to the gig, unfortunately, but i’d love to purchase one of these shirts….how can i do that?
Well, I did a limited run for the show to see if people were interested. So far, it’s been a good response. I’ll be able to send one if there are any left over. I can’t promise though. If they do all sell out, then I plan on printing more 🙂 Send me a reminder after the gig and I’ll let you know if any are left.
hope the show went well, wish i could have been there…i just wanted to write and ask if you have any leftover Organize and Arise t shirts, hopefully XXL…..i’d love to purchase one….just let me know, thanks a lot!
We sold quite a bit, but sadly we have no XXL sizes, sorry. I will be doing another print run though, so stay tuned. Cheers
are there any left?
I do have a few. Let me know your size if interested.
