Disco/Anti-Disco Iron-On Transfers, Circa 1979





Disco was so contentious, in fact, that it led to a near riot in 1979.

The second transfer was illustrated by Mort Drucker.

UPDATE: Rick Shithouse sent me two more (below), and they are impressive.

These are all I’ve been able to find. It should be enough to give every t-shirt in your closet an inferiority complex.

There are more, thankfully, and I’ll do a follow-up post when I have better images. The transfers were probably meant to coincide with the 1980 release of Remco’s massive Universal Monster toy line.

Lots more iron-ons and Roach Studios here.

If you had it and wore it, I’m impressed. Almost as cool as this Tron Yori shirt.
