BRAID/ ALEXIS PRICE PAWS, HOOFS, AND TALONS (T SHIRT)                                                                    SEE DETAIL 

The mid-90s was a pretty amazing time to be involved with underground rock music. Bands booked entire tours playing house parties, tiny venues, and VFW halls. There were tons of indie labels and DIY zines putting out an enormous amount of music and covering every show. Kids purchased tons of records, CDs, and magazines. Braid was one of the most endearing, prolific, and musically talented bands to come out of this scene. Their approach to song writing yields tunes with a heavy nod to Revolution Summer era DC Hardcore and an undeniably clever pop sense. This lead us to include Braid on the very first Bifocal Media release (1997’s Actuality of Thought video). In 1999 we produced and released the Braid centered “Killing a Camera” film. In 2004 we re-released KAC on DVD with additional footage and new interviews. We’ve known these guys for a long time and we’re proud to call ourselves friends and fans of this band.


Alexis Price is an artist from Raleigh, NC. Her work is comprised of feminine forms meshed with animals. It’s equal parts violence, sexuality, and affection; all executed with a keen sense of color balance and nimble/delicate brush strokes. After a few tries with several talented artists, Alexis finally cracked the Braid code and came up with a shirt design that everyone loves. Get it while we got it!

BRAID KILLING A CAMERA 2004 (DVD)                                                                                                          SEE TRAILER

The official press release of this read as follows: In 1999; after playing, recording, and touring non-stop for over 5 years, Braid decided to play 5 final shows in Chicago, Milwaukee, and Champaign. These final shows attracted thousands of loyal fans from around the world. Bifocal Media was there to document the band during these last 5 days. This DVD is the result. Includes the original KAC film as well as a new film: KAC 2004 Retrospective, and audio commentary from the all original band members. Over 2 hours of new interviews and never before seen footage. This film brings together all the members of Braid, five years later, to look back at the end of one of indie's greats.


In reality: Brad, Jay and I flew to Chicago with some cameras, got drunk and rode around in the van with Braid while they played 5 “final” shows. Somehow we ended up with a great documentary about one of our favorite mid ‘90s bands. The original film was released on VHS in 2000 and did very well by our standards. In 2004 I flew back to Chicago with a couple of cameras and got drunk again. We made a new “where are they now” type of film and included it with the original on this DVD. Braid decided to do a reunion tour in support of the DVD release and this version ended up selling more copies than the VHS. It’s pretty cool.
