Just a thought as I saw Marina (as in, and the Diamonds) is asking her fans what kind of tour merchandise they'd like to see. I know we'd have no influence on what they actually produce but it's always fun to speculate :lol:

I think with the drastic fantastic gigs there was some really brilliant unusual stuff like the phone screen wipe, the towel, playing cards and how could we forget, the hip flask :lol:

What i feel was missed out on was pants. (underwear to you americans :lol:) lots of bands now produce pants as merchandise, i personally own black eyed peas "where is the love" pants and take that "it only takes a minute" ones :lol:. I was thinking kt's could maybe just say "woo hoo" across the back :lol:

I just like to see bands doing things a bit different (bloc party condoms anyone? :lol:) rather than the usual tshirts, hoodies, bags, beanie hats, badges and stickers.

Clip in bleached blonde hairpieces a la DF cover?

Anyway. Discuss.

:lol:

Pants with "Suddenly I see" on them could make the trick indeed :lol:

I really loved the hip flask! :D

I do love a good programme (providing they're at a reasonable price).

A foam Massive Hand? Dread to think what finger gesture it would be making though....

I guess a lot of it depends on what the new album is like; what style artwork, what the general "vibe" of the whole thing is...from image to marketing campaigns...Drastic Fantastic allowed a scope of crazy, wacky things but I've no idea what to suggest when we haven't had much clue as to the new album and its direction.

Oh my god yes :lol:

I actually got a big pink one at girls aloud last year :lol:. My big cousin was ashamed to be seen with me and appalled i spent £7 on a big foam hand with girls aloud on it, but she spent £8 on 2 beers. Those beers left her during the concert, and I still have my big foam hand.

Not to be TOO demanding but like a compact sized programme. I have some that are gigantic and just a complete arse to carry after gigs :lol:
