    These floppy, warm, loveable tees are no tease(s)! They will cuddle with you while you listen to our album or contemplate our "crush poster." Made in Albuquerque by Albuquerquans, you will feel cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and in the fall, fashionable, in the spring, careless and free. Comes in yellow (with heather ink), or heather (with yellow).

  • T-Shirt/Apparel

    That's right! How many bands out there sell dresses!? These ones are sleek and slinky, so be ready to draw some wandering eyes. All black with yellow ink. The fabric is delicate and light. Note that the length of the dress is provocatively short. Made locally in Albuquerque by a fine craftsman and gentle soul.

lyrics

Baby’s got the blues, baby’s got the rhythm, baby got the beat, baby got the rattle, baby I love you, but baby got the attitude, baby, baby, baby, baby bye-bye. Baby’s cute, baby’s funny, baby’s always crying; baby’s messy, baby’s angry at his shadow, baby’s always singing the blues. Baby’s got the blues… Baby, baby, pollution, baby, donuts, attitude, baby, baby, baby, baby bye-bye. Baby goes to school, fights baby pollution; baby does good things so that nobody dies. Baby fights crime in the streets with cops, baby hangs out at the donut shop. Baby’s got the blues…
