The topical news stories pertaining to current events in the music business are hard to keep up with, especially when a slew of new musicians, bands and labels are popping up every day in every city. But if you do keep up with what’s going on, you know that Captured Tracks, an indie label started in Brooklyn, New York (and home to bands like DIIV, The Soft Moons, Beach Fossils, Wild Nothing, and Craft Spells), is a hot, sought-after label that anyone who has a band nowadays would maim and pillage to get on.
In 1952, Sun Records was the Captured Tracks of its time. Host to the likes of rockabilly and rock-‘n’-roll giants like Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison and The King himself, Elvis Presley, Sun Records paved the way for record labels thereafter. As the music of Sun helped lay rock’s foundation in the 20th century, commemorating the start of the greatest music of our time is now available for special, sunny children who, hopefully because of their parents’ good taste, appreciate Sun’s contribution to music.
With the Sun Records Rooster Toddler Shirt from Pop Funk, “Where Rock-‘N’-Roll Was Born,” is no doubt stated for the world to see. Available in navy blue for toddlers up to four years, this machine-washable piece of musical history is your child’s step in the right direction if they wish to carry on the spirit of rock like a king.
