A Quiet Refusal
I've no idea where this tshirt came from in the first place, but I'm almost certain that the Media Circus stencil was done by AggyK in the lead up to the second Media Circus event. Disable the Illusion - Engage the Reality. That was July 2001, before the world changed dramatically in September.
The front happened while I was living in Richmond and working at The Great Britain Hotel, around 2002, and felt particularly disenfranchised - there was a lot of Godspeed You Black Emperor getting played at home. It's hard to read but you can see an "in the gaps between the ads..." added to the end of that GYBE quote.
