Did they get the idea to call the T-shirts "Sisters Europe" from the Psychedelic Furs song "Sister Europe?"

Does anyone have any idea what font type is used on the new shirt? A derivative of Caslon Antique I assume, but with funky M's and W's and R's.

Any ideas?

The R is just an upside-down L by the looks of it (reflected rather than rotated) The M and the W are each other rotated (if you see what I mean) And in the dates they've used O (capital letter) rather than 0 (numeral)

It's probably something custom-built off a Caslon Antique base.

The "upside-down L" looks almost identical to the "R[/G]" on the Roadkill/Goldkill logo. The "A" however, is intact, which is confusing.

The M looks like a Cyrillic T to me.

You wouldn't be planning to bootleg the shirt would you?

I don't mind the typo, it's the head cog and colour scheme I'm not too keen on

Indeed. Like Motz mentioned about the Roadkill/Goldkill thing.

The 'W' is a cyrillic 'sh'....
