It has, in a lot of ways, not been the best year. But while politics, the state of the planet and what feels like everything else is crumbling around us, we did the best to make it a little bit brighter through some damn good merch.
Here’s just a few of the things we got to do this year:
As Insecure Men unleashed themselves on the world with their self-titled debut album, a UK tour and a 10-track covers record it’s been a full-on year, and nothing short of exciting.
Naturally, they needed some exciting merch to go with it, so as well as some tees, we made the one thing you didn’t know was missing from your life: an Insecure Men football scarf that had us wishing away the heatwave just so we could wear them.
Confidence Man took the world by storm in 2018, bringing a healthy dose of unashamed, unbreakable fun to what’s otherwise been a pretty bleak year. They released their debut album Confident Songs for Confident People, and toured all over the world, including a sold-out show at London’s Village Underground.
We, of course, jumped on the Confidence wagon, making them some fittingly fun, limited edition tees.
Between launching his own record label (the aptly named Mac’s Record Label), releasing tracks with his new band Met Gala and heading out on his first solo tour it’s been, as ever, a busy year for Mac DeMarco.
Rounding off a European tour which took him from Russia to Manchester via Latvia, Germany and more, Mac DeMarco got spooky with This Old Bat – a Halloween party at Southampton’s O2 Guildhall. To mark the occasion, we provided some scarily good (sorry) limited edition riso prints and t-shirts that went down a treat and made for a great costume for Mac.
2018’s been a big year for Headie One, seeing him release a stellar 16-track album The One Two, and win Breakthrough of the Year at the Rated Awards 2018.
We got to be part of the action, bringing his lyric “They don’t even care my head’s shaped like a 50p” to life with a 50p coin donning his head (a welcome alternative to the Brexit celebration 50p) and making some limited-edition tees for his I One Two Tour, which included a huge sold-out date at Electric Brixton.
Among tour after tour with the likes of Forth Wanderers, Diet Cig and Los Campesinos!, as well as her own dates, Illuminati Hotties (AKA Sarah Tudzin) squeezed in the release of her hugely exciting debut album, and gave us some invaluable advice: Kiss Yr Frenemies.
So we took it, and put it on a cap, which along with some super cute pocket tees, had Illuminati Hotties perfectly equipped for the LA Sunshine.
Boy Azooga have been working hard this year, and have themselves firmly established as ones to watch. Their 2018 can be pretty much summed up by their debut album 1, 2, Kung Fu! finding itself, deservedly, on Rough Trade’s Albums of the Year list.
Along with UK and US tours, including a sold-out headline show at Scala, it’s safe to say they’ve been killing, and we made sure they were prepared with a host of effortless cool tees and totes.
One of our favourite labels 4AD have been pretty unstoppable this year with incredible releases coming out of their ears, including records from Lemon Twigs, Daughter, Tune-Yards and The Breeders to name but a few.
Naturally, such a good year requires some strong merch to flog at record fairs and the likes of Soho Radio’s Label Lodge, so we delivered, teaming up with 4AD to give them some cool as f*ck totes, enamel pins and jumpers.
With a host of hugely exciting releases, as usual, from the likes of Goat Girl, The Decemberists, Honey Hahs and Sleaford Mods, Rough Trade have been providing us with reams of good music.
So, with a refreshed logo designed by Parquet Courts’ A. Savage, we provided them with some super colourful totes, as expertly modelled by Jarvis Cocker.
Releasing their debut EP, non-stop touring and proving themselves as one of the most exciting names in music has basically been Sports Team’s agenda this year, but they still had time for some tongue-in-cheek enjoyment of the World Cup.
We teamed up with them to make a three lions tee that’s better than any official one (and definitely a good luck charm that’s the only reason England made it as far as they did).
whenyoung have been busy bees this year, spending 2018 supporting the likes of Blossoms and The Vaccines, doing their own headline shows and releasing their debut EP Given Up, with 2019 shaping up to be just as mad.
We got involved, kitting them, and their fans, out with a range of simple, but aptly painfully cool tees.
AF Gang (IDLES fan club)
This year’s been a whirlwind for IDLES – their presence virtually inescapable, and rightly so, as they released their second album Joy as an Act of Resistance in August to critical acclaim and seemed to be endlessly touring. And they’ve done it all with a solid, loving community around.
To help the AF Gang (IDLES’ fan club) be permanently repping IDLES, we made some badass pin badges so they can spread the word everywhere.
Having first burst onto the scene in the mid-90s, this year saw electronic legends Groove Armada celebrate 21 years of with their Twenty One Live tour.
We were honoured to be involved, making t-shirts, totes and sweatshirts for when they descended on Bristol, Glasgow, London and Manchester.
As they released records from some of our favourites this year – Boy Azooga, CHAI and Confidence Man to name a few – we were super stoked to be on board to make tees and jumpers for Heavenly.
We also made a very limited edition pair of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard x Heavenly pin badges, which might possibly be the cutest pins ever. And we’re definitely not biased.
The Great Escape
With The Great Escape recently celebrating the announcement of their FIRST FIFTY for 2019 with a series of gigs over three days in East London, we can’t help but wonder where this year’s gone.
Earlier this year, we made The Great Escape a super special Riso Print to help them celebrate a lineup that hosted some of our favourite names in new music, such as Boy Azooga, Goat Girl, Phoebe Bridgers and loads more. We’ve no doubt 2019 will be just as special.
Dropping his debut album Bad Contestant, contributing to the emerging world of schmaltzcore, Matt Maltese has certainly made his mark on the world this year.
As he popped up on various lists, playlists and festival bills, we made him some cool as f*ck tees, with artwork by Alice Bloomfield.
Having just been announced for Primavera 2019, following 12 months that’s seen them release tonnes of good music, support Superorganism and ultimately make anyone who comes across them fall in love with them, it’s been a good year for CHAI.
We teamed up with them to supply one of the coolest bands in the world with some of the cutest merch – a collection of wonderfully colourful tees and totes.
Pip Blom have, in 2018, released an EP, played a string of sold out shows on their first headline tour, won an award at the Music Moves Europe Talent Awards and polished it all off by signing to Heavenly.
We made sure their merch was up to scratch with their brilliance, with tees to accompany them, whether it was smashing it at their own shows, or dominating stages supporting The Breeders.
Releasing their latest record Floating Features and galavanting round the US and Europe meant La Luz needed some damn good merch to go with them – so, of course, that’s just what we gave them.
Imperfectly lovely Riso Prints and a host of sickeningly cool tees (including one with a dog on) acted as the perfect accompaniment as they treated Europe to their unique brand of surf-noir.
Let’s Eat Grandma
Sharing their second album I’m All Ears, this year saw Let’s Eat Grandma win Best Album at the Q Awards, Best Sophomore Album at the AIM Awards, and basically receive endless acclaim – and rightly so.
As they ventured around Japan, the US and everywhere and everywhere in between, we supplied art prints and tees.
Tersha stormed a panel of old-school music industry men (who were shocked to hear tea towels aren’t the best merch) at BBC Introducing Live at Tobacco Dock, to give everyone some insight and tips into the future (and importance) of merch, spoke to the BBC for 6 Music’s band t-shirt day, and was invited on to 4Music to impart more wisdom on the world. Watch that here (from 55 minutes in).
If that’s not enough, at the start of the year we did an interview with MusicAlly, which you can read here.
Here’s to an even better 2019!
Eeamon Forde interviewed us for Music Ally and ended up writing a feature about us! You can read it in full here or below!
If you are going to give your company a name like Terrible Merch, it’s going to attract questions. Is it a post-modern double bluff? Is it a ‘get out of jail free’ card? Or is it a sly dig at the competition?
For Terrible Merch founders Tersha Willis (a streetwear designer) and Jack McGruer (a musician who has been through the major label machine) it’s all three.
Willis, coming from the fashion business, was appalled at how shoddy a lot of artist merchandise is while McGruer has first-hand experience of how shoddy artist deals can be in the worst examples of labels taking control of their merchandising.
They decided to do something about it, setting up Terrible Merch to raise the standards in a $3.1bn business that they feel too often takes its customers for granted, and short-changes both them and the artists whose names they put on T-shirts, mugs and tote bags.
The company has now taken to equity-crowdfunding platform Crowdcube to take the company to the next level, and give independent acts an affordable entry point into the merchandising gold rush – it claims that it’ll be a £3m revenue business within three to five years “with an exit to a major recording label, entertainment company or ticket provider” within five to eight years.
“We took a look at the merchandise market and realised that the quality was really poor,” says Willis on the impetus for setting up the company. “Bands also didn’t really know how to sell it. When we deliver them the merchandise, we also gave them everything you need it to sell it.”
Terrible Merch’s co-founders feel that the merchandise business is stacked against the customer and the artist and, if it is to grow further, must change this. Plus, it is primarily about super-serving bands of a certain size while small acts – who desperately need new income streams just to keep going – are being locked out.
“There’s no merchandise companies that really helped small bands with that,” argues Willis. “There are plenty of places like Bandcamp and Music Glue – but you still have to, if you want to make money out of it, source the products yourself. And the quality is normally terrible.”
There is also some personal score-settling at play here. “Jack was a major label-signed artist so he went through all the terrible things that happens to bands with their merchandise and how little money they say at the end of it,” she says. “We set up to solve all of those problems and the market was hungry for it.”
For now, Willis and McGruer are handpicking the acts they work with, focusing on emerging acts and those just on the cusp of breaking through, helping them create new means of income when they most need them.
“We have what we call our roster, which runs a bit like an independent record label where we A&R bands that we like,” explains Willis. “And if we like them, we will invest in a merchandise range, helping them to set that up and helping them to start making revenue. Once they get to a certain point, they can move over to our private label side and start to make good money from it. Everyone that we take on on the roster will grow into the private label side.”
The pair have several issues with some of the more established artist merchandise brands, particularly how narrowly selective their rosters are and how the quality of the end products is being compromised in the stone-faced march towards profitability.
“They only work with artists at a certain level,” suggests Willis. “The ideas, are great but the execution – and this is very typical in music merchandise – is never perfect. That’s because it doesn’t have to be [perfect] because fans will just buy it because they want to support the artists that they like… I recently met with the manufacturers for [major music merchandise brand]. Quality isn’t something they think about when they are manufacturing. They told us that straight up.”
In the 1990s, the record business was accused of taking its customers for granted, regarding them as walking wallets and squeezing every penny they could out of them in CD sales. This is partly why, when the CD market started to implode in the wake of Napster, the public had little sympathy for labels’ plight. In recent years, the live industry has started to be accused of similarly poor treatment of their customers through escalating ticket prices, transaction costs, charging to print tickets and home and being complicit in the secondary ticketing market.
The merchandise business, if it’s not careful, could be facing a consumer backlash of its own, suggests Willis.
“Fans are consumers in their everyday life as well and they do understand quality,” she says. “Coming from a fashion background, quality is really important for us. And we can get the margins good [for acts]. Our whole idea really is to help them build a business out of it; whereas I think other merchandise companies are helping themselves build a business; they are not really helping bands.”
The bigger merchandise companies will argue that economies of scale will give them a competitive advantage over startups in this space. As they will be ordering product runs in the thousands or even tens of thousands, the unit costs are going to be incredibly low. But this really only works for big acts who can sell lots of products.
Willis feels her company can step in here for small acts – who are deemed commercially unviable for the bigger operators – and offer them competitive rates.
“Because it’s the same supply chain we used when working in fashion, we have the same price per unit for runs of one to 500,” she explains. “So if you ordered 500 t-shirts, the unit price you would get for that is the same as if you ordered 100. We will find the magic number for the band.”
By taking a more hands-on approach, the company claims that it can advise new acts of their market potential and define both product ranges and product runs for them.
“We will look at their fans, we will look at the reach, we will go to their shows, we will advise them on exactly the right amount of merchandise that they need,” says Willis. “We have a minimalist approach to it in that we don’t over stock them. We want them to make money. Because our supply chain is so effective and efficient, we can give them the [best] prices.”
She adds, “We look at the band’s fans and what they are likely to buy. Some bands are just T-shirt bands. We also do pin badges, we do bags, we do caps; there is really no limit to what products we are going to do. We are even working on getting 3D-printed figurines. For instance, in Germany, tote bags sell like crazy. So if a band is touring in Germany, we make sure they have tote bags. We monitor everything that happens with our bands on the road by their sales as they have an app that tracks all of their stock.”
Terrible Merch sees concerts and merchandise as concentric circles in an act’s revenue-earning potential. and is moving beyond the traditional merchandiser role of product design/manufacturing/fulfilment to expanding their live appeal.
“We help artists develop their live brand and the products that go with that,” says Willis. “We help them with merchandise and take it in. If they are a smaller band, we do some live sessions [for them]. We have previously gone down to the Lightship – a boat in East London – where we have filmed acts like Childhood, Shame and Dead Pretties. It helps them develop their profile which, in turn, helps them book more live shows which, in turn, helps them sell more merchandise.”
“I AM A GOLDEN GOD” Russell Hammond of fictional band Stillwater shouts down to the enraptured crowd at the house party in Topeka.
Why does this scene in Almost Famous, in a film packed full of quotes, quips and an incredible soundtrack, stand out? Because Russell’s spectre, the image of him on that roof - if you saw it for real, (let’s hope someone did)- it would be burnt on your brain for all time.
See, music lends itself to the spectre. When it’s only taking place via sound in the air, these images stick. Graphics stick. Record sleeves stick. Logos stick. Not being “one of the out of focus guys” sticks.
At a time when you could know nothing about a band apart from the design they’d chosen for their LP and the lyrics they’d added to the inner sleeves, the images a band chose to communicate to you with - all the way down to fifteen-year-old William Miller in his bedroom, records shoved under his bed - were everything.
But William is one of the lucky ones. We fall down the rabbit hole with him. We go back stage. We go on stage. And when the daydream is over, even for William, all that he’s left with are the physical reminders. The interview tapes, the backstage passes, the ticket stubs, the records and the merch. The Topeka party, the tour bus, the hotel rooms, it would only be a dream, if not for all of this.
We join Stillwater at “the death rattle” of rock and roll. Philip Seymour Hoffman’s excellent Lester Bangs tells William and, by extension, us, that the music he idolises is OVER; we’ve joined our valiant protagonist for “the last gasp, the last grope”. The year is 1973 and music is in flux. Stillwater snake across the country on a tour bus, not yet upgraded to a plane. Woodstock, some four years previously, saw 300,000 people show up in a meadow, and Peter Rudge, The Who’s road manager at the time, said that the minute the record industry got a look at that (which had, up until then, been kind of a cottage industry), they realised there was a lot of money to be made. Arena tours began en masse.
Later in the film, Stillwater’s manager Dennis Hope tells us: “If you think Mick Jagger will still be out there trying to be a rock star at age fifty, then you are sadly, sadly mistaken”.
Of course, we know otherwise. With the rise of arena tours came an actually legitimate way for a band with a combined age of 297 to continue making enough money to warrant global tours well into their mid 70s. Music ebbs with the tides of change as much as it resists, and often, as with Mick (or definitely Keith), in a way that defies logic or expectation.
Forty five years later, latter-day Millennials examine mixtapes with the same disinterest that early-day Millennials examined Betamax. Spotify runs your party. Retweets and YouTube views determine how your favourite band are treated by their record label. An app manages their sold out gig waiting list.
What will save music in 2018? What remains when the tour is over: Merchandise.
If that surprises you, it’s time to change how you think about merchandise. It’s time to invest in Terrible Merch.
Matt Maltese is a songwriter in the truest sense of the term. A piano and some pain makes for a dream combination in the talented fingertips of this South London based musician. He pens incredibly moving ballads that echo the despair of many in this trying time. In delivery he captures a haunting melancholy similar to troubadours Leonard Cohen, Father John Misty and Rufus Wainwright. Terrible Merch is thrilled to be collaborating with Matt Maltese!
Indie-pop talent Gothic Tropic has joined the Terrible Merch ranks! Gothic Tropic is the moniker of LA based musician Cecilia Della Peruti who makes blissful catchy tunes you could just float on. Gothic Tropic’s upcoming album Fast or Feast is sure to catch a few ears with music that will ask listeners to dance and despair.
Terrible Merch and Gothic Tropic will be donating £3 for every Palms Tee sold to Planned Parenthood. Do good, look good.
This year we witnessed Brexit, pulled our collars as Donald Trump became President and sighed as David Bowie, Prince and George Michael left us to play the great festival in the sky. But it wasn't all bad… We grew our Terrible Merch family and we’ve had a great time and many late, loud nights doing it.
Gang joined our roster and released ‘Not a Reason’, made some matching merch, got signed to Ra Ra Rok Records and released their double A-side much to the delight of BBC Radio. We can't wait to see what these guys do next year.
Our Girl teamed up with us and made merch for their single ‘Sleeper’ released by the mighty Cannibal Hymns. We got to hear more awesomeness with the release of ‘Normally’ which kinda blew our minds.
Puppy and Terrible Merch released VOL II together and produced some of the most badass looking merch we’ve ever seen. Kerrang readers and the rest of London went wild for it.
We spent the better part of summer trying to get one of our favourite bands Kagoule to come and make merch with us, we even ventured out of London to their hometown of Nottingham…They finally gave in and we made some insanely cool black on black embroidered sweatshirts and hoodies. Take our word for it, the best is yet to come from these PRS momentum grantees in the new year.
Our year was taken up another level when we got to work with everyone's new favourite band; Girl Ray, who lit up our lives and our playlists with the single ‘Trouble’ on repeat. Hayley Bonar loves em enough that even she’s rocking their Terrible Merch made Snake Tee.
We got to hang out with the mighty Shame at Lightship95, recorded our LightshIp Edition Live Sessions with Rory Attwell, Dogbrain Videos and our friends over at So Young Magazine. Good news, there’ll be more of these to come in 2k17.
To round it all off, we got to welcome Cannibal Hymns to the Merch Family… not a bad year, right?
2016 is gone, finito, please piss off. We’re pretty optimistic about 2017 and we don’t have crystal ball. What we have is the news record label Cannibal Hymns and Terrible Merch are teaming up to bring you delights for your ears and threads for your bods. Cannibal Hymns know a good tune and have been delivering them from the shores of Brighton in recent times. Our Girl, Abattoir Blues, Dream Wife and TIGERCUB make the dream roster and we are stoked to be working with this label.
We’ve already doted over Our Girl’s latest EP ‘Normally’ and we can’t wait to see what this label is going to deliver next. Why? Because if one thing’s for sure it’s that if Cannibal Hymns are involved it’s going to be worth it.
There’s a point in time where you want to capture something because of the beauty of the moment. You can’t always do that, you can’t always be in the right place at the right time. Instead, sometimes you have to help to create those moments. We wanted to create these moments in one of our favourite places, Lightship95. We brought together a group of individuals to make it happen and capture it perfectly, as well as artists that we love, to capture them at their best.
Last month we brought you our very first session in the form of ‘Gold Hole’ and today we bring you an unreleased track. Fans of the band will be aware of ‘Lampoon’ but those that aren’t, it's fair to say that this is a band defining track. Our interview with Shame follows below.
We all receive music in different ways. Not just the delivery method of choice, not even the specific platforms, but our own personal methods for enjoyment. Some people spread thin across a myriad of genres, others dig down into one artist’s oeuvre and there are countless methods in between.
I seem to bounce back and forth between methods, but I also seem to pivot to artists I know and love, for little more than the unbridled joy of hearing exactly the song you want to hear exactly when you want to hear it.
One such artist is Our Girl. We’ve been working with them since very shortly after the inception of Terrible Merch. Having seen this band more times than I can count, I’d like to think I’ve got as deep a knowledge of their tracks as anyone outside of the band themselves. To really own those tracks makes a difference and so far, I (and everyone else) have only been able to have two.
Happily, that is about to change. Our Girl have announced their upcoming ‘Normally’ EP, through Cannibal Hymns. I could wax lyrical about it, track-by-track and point out the nuances that make each passing minute of this release truly special. Instead, I implore you to listen below and make it to any and all of their upcoming shows in the coming weeks.
Nov 15 - Instore at Rough Trade East
Dec 12 - The Hope & Ruin, Brighton
Dec 13 - The Shacklewell Arms, London

We wanted to create these moments in one of our favourite places, Lightship95. We brought together a group of individuals to make it happen and capture it perfectly, as well as artists that we love, to capture them at their best.
This is Shame in session at Lightship95, recorded by Rory Attwell, filmed by Dogbrain Videos and brought to you by SoYoung Magazine, Terrible Merch and Black Cat White Cat Promotions.
So it’s been a hell of a year, right? Around this time of year you tend to get lots of wistful analysis of what’s happened, but I think this year has beaten a lot of competition out of the way to become arguably the most trying in living memory. Certainly my living memory, which amounts to a smidge over a quarter of a century.
Nevertheless, - and as we’ve noticed a number of others doing - we’re going to look to the future. Look to the dawning of the light. This week, that beacon of hope is specifically our new merch for Moshi Moshi signees Girl Ray.
I think we all have people we can trust when we ask about music. When I asked those I trust about Girl Ray, one of the comments that stuck with me was, “They’re real.” I guess what made it stick was being surrounded by so much uncertainty as to what was real anymore. Is this real life now? Are we living in a simulation, hacked by the adolescent sibling of its twisted creator? Can I have my old life back?
I don’t think my friend meant they were “real” in a street sense, but I immediately understood the difficult-to-qualify assertion. There’s a fine line between what Girl Ray are striving for (and achieving, it should be mentioned) and what a lesser band would end up with. I think what separates them, what acts as that divide, is sincerity. The sincerity in ‘Trouble’ is almost a part of the tracking process, you can feel it, woven into the negative space around the restrained performances of Sophie, Poppy and Iris.Welcome in, Girl Ray, we’re happy to have you around.
ALTHOUGH “MINI-KAGS” SOUNDS LIKE A BREAKOUT HAIR TREND FOR THE FESTIVAL SEASON, MAKE NO MISTAKE, IT’S THE AFFECTIONATE TERM FOR WHAT KAGOULE BECAME IN THEIR VIDEO FOR MAGNIFIED. IN FACT, WE HAVE SO MUCH AFFECTION FOR THIS BAND THAT WE ESSENTIALLY BEGGED THEM TO LET US DO THEIR MERCH AND, HAPPILY, THEY RELENTED. WE’RE NOW BOUND IN SARTORIAL MATRIMONY AND WE’VE GOT SOME DOOM-AS-FUCK LONG SLEEVE MERCH AVAILABLE UP ON THE STORE!
Directed by co-conspirators and Terrible Merch roster mates Dogbrain Videos, the mini-Kags endure some seriously masochistic treatment at the hands of possibly-a-bit-Brexit-maybe-so-perhaps-that-explains-it-a-bit gardener/mum. It’s a mind spinner, check it out.
Unboxing videos are legit fun, if you’re putting off changing your registered bank address or some other equally dry task. However, we’ve reached a new zenith with Dogbrain Videos’ effort, managing to create a new method for speedily putting that sweet merchandise onto your torso. Namely the “Just Fucking Throw It At People Unannounced” technique, pioneered by the inimitable Christopher Wade in this video, which is nailed-on to make you don a creepy stalker smile by minute one.
What is a mirage? We know heat shimmer mirages from long, hot summer days, gazing down streets to see watery apparitions rising from the burning asphalt. It’s a phenomenon, a naturally-occurring phenomenon, that never ceases to demand a second look.
We borrow the word from the French mirage, in turn rooted in the Latin mirari, the word Shakespeare adapted to name Prospero’s daughter in The Tempest and - as all good GCSE/A-Level English Literature students know - that literally means “to look at; to wonder at.”
How apt, how perfectly apt, that we see these non-organic mirages throughout Morning Smoke’s ‘Waste My Time,’ a video to at the very least wonder at, if not be totally in awe of.
Shot in Brighton and directed by Jay Bartlett, this video is stark, an amalgam that echoes and balances the sweeping and gut-bursting swells of the track.
Make no mistake that we dearly love this band and are desperate to hear more as they continue on their shimmering developmental journey.
