The 14 Hour Technicolor Dream was a multi-artist happening featuring poets, artists, and musicians held on April 29, 1967. The event was probably the closest London ever got to duplicating the infamous Acid Tests that Ken Kesey held in California in the mid ’60s. Not that there were no gatherings in the British capital where people were turned on to hallucinogens, or where a combination of music, lights, and mixed media attempted to create an atmosphere conducive to the psychedelic traveler, but this was the biggest event to contain all of the above, and more. Despite featuring a veritable who’s who of the counterculture, the even has been largely forgotten, though this is most likely because most of the people in attendance were tripping balls.
For those who were lucid enough to take in the entire event, they were in for a pretty amazing time. Syd Barrett led Pink Floyd headlined, and other artists billed included: the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, One In A Million, Soft Machine, the Move, Tomorrow, the Pretty Things, Jimmy Powell & the Five Dimensions, Pete Townshend, John’s Children, Alexis Korner, Social Deviants, the Purple Gang, Champion Jack Dupree, Graham Bond, Savoy Brown, Ginger Johnson and his African conga drummers, the Creation, Denny Laine, the Block, the Cat, the Flies, Charlie Browns Clowns, Glo Macari and the Big Three, Gary Farr, the Interference, Jacobs Ladder Construction Company, Pale Fire, Ron Geesin, Lincoln Folk Group, Mike Horovitz, Poison Bellows, Christopher Logue, Robert C. Randall, Suzy Creamcheese, Sam Gopal’s Dream, Giant Sun Trolley, Simon Vinkenoog, Jean Jaques Lavel, the Stalkers, Utterly Incredible Too Long Ago To Remember Sometimes Shouting At People, Barry Fantoni, Noel Murphy, Dick Gregory, Graham Stevens, and Yoko Ono. In the audience watching Ono’s performance art that night was John Lennon, who attended the event with his friend John Dunbar. Lennon had met Ono half a year earlier, on 7 November 1966, when he attended a private preview of an exhibition of her work entitled “Unfinished Paintings and Objects” at Dunbar’s Indica Gallery.
Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.
Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
All sizes are provided in inches!
