I always go to gigs telling myself not to buy anything and always end up with some tat or other. I even got those stickers they were selling on the PFAYM tour NO IDEA

Hope there is a European tour next year, I'll wait for that to come along assuming they didn't play any new songs on the Euro tour last year?. If they didn't, then more the reason to come back to Europe.

Maybe there will be more merch on that one. Although I'm annoyed with my life at work right now regarding time off and moved to a place where you can't even have fun, they should at least let me live my life and actually enjoy it. I shouldn't lose the privilege to go on trips abroad just because I'm a worker.

I saw them twice here last year, what do you mean by new songs? They played a bit of every album.
We had almost the same merchandise that I saw the year before in London/Cardiff.

I've never felt the need to buy any of their tat other than the JFPL "Face" t-shirt. That was nice.

I've always wondered what those guys do with all their unsold tshirts. They always seem to have way more than they'd be able to sell. I guess some of the guys must follow the band round the country on a full tour, but they even show up at one off gigs with hundreds of shirts..... Total mystery!

Genius. Build up band brand awareness with your customers paying for the advertising. Interested to know if the prices are high to pay a fair wage to Bangladesh (or simular) workers. Suspect not.

My guess is the shirts cost them pence to make, and it's worth potentially having 20 left at the end if one sale returns what 20 (or 10/5) shirts cost to make...

Got the black t-shirt with tour dates on the back. Not too shabby.
