T-SHIRT DREAM PARTY
T-shirt Dream Party are an indie/alternative outfit created by brothers Ben and Dan Dickson with lifelong friends Eggs (David Egbe) and Sam Powell – collectively known as Green Eggs and Sam – from the suburban crevices of Manchester; somewhere between the paradise of Stretford and the Tesco in Baguley.
They broke through the ranks as notorious mould breakers at church funking up services with syncopated disco beats and ten minute guitar solos before the priest kicked them out and told them to never return because he preferred heavy metal and nine minute solos.
Dusting themselves off back out on the streets of Manchester, they were searching for a new stage – one where their funk and melodic nouse would be appreciated, not thrown out of the door like the milk man was when my dad walked in on my mum – when they realised that the stage was in fact searching for them.
They’ve since been recording with well known producers ‘Sugar House’ and writing relentlessly in a conservatory. They say people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones but what if there’s a priest stood outside with a gun and a stopwatch set to 09:00.00?
