Alexander 'Skip' Spence Oar T-Shirt


Skip was Jefferson airplane's drummer on their first album and went on to be Moby Grape's guitarist. He tragically suffered a complete mental collapse, tried to attack band mates with an axe and had to be institutionalised in Bellevue hospital. After six months he emerged having written the songs that would become 'Oar'. Recorded by Moby Grape producer David Rubinson and released by Columbia, it didn't just flop, for some time it was the lowest selling album the label had ever released and was deleted within a year.

Spence thought he was doing demos and the songs would be fleshed out but they were released with him singing and playing everything. 

Some say it is a harrowing account of someone with severe mental illness. Others say that it is a fearless work of artistry. The song 'Grey/Afro' is over 9-minutes of mantric drone and the whole album built a cult status over the years, so much so that it was re-released with added extra songs.

Challenging? Yes. But don't let that put you off. There is some genius buried in these grooves.

Returns & Exchanges

This isn't a problem. If you need to change size or colour or design, or just fancy a refund, its all cool. I can sort all of this out for you. 

When returning an item it must arrive with us in it’s original condition. Wearing it down the pub on a Friday night out, getting it covered in Guinness and setting light to it via a badly rolled reefer, then returning it on Monday, is understandable, but not allowed by the karma pixies who govern our lives. And we don't want to upset the karma pixies now, do we? 

If your item is in any way faulty then please contact me immediately, send a photo of the issue and I will get a replacement organised. You won't have to send it back to us. For clarity, the concept of faulty does not include stains from a lamb dhansak you have spilled down yourself after consuming 8 pints of lager.  

Before making a return, please email me with your order number, and what you want to happen - a refund, or a different size/colour/design. I can then make it happen because I am all powerful, can change my clothes in a phone box and wear my underpants on the outside. Possibly.

You will always be dealing with me, Johnny, because DJTees is so small and niche that I do all admin. Don't worry, I don't bite, or at least not unless you are a sausage. I do bite sausages.

If you'd love a t-shirt but are totally skint, drop me a line and I'll see what I can do.  


 We print everything to order and don't hold any stock of anything. That would be mad. Almost all orders are printed within 2 or 3 working days (this doesn't include weekends and public holidays), occasionally as long as 4 days if we have run out of a size or colour t-shirt and stock is delayed in arriving.
