Free Kitten and Mosquito were two Sonic Youth side projects from the early 1990s. Free Kitten featured Kim Gordon alongside Pussy Galore's Julie Cafritz, Bordeom's Yoshimi, and Pavement's Mark Ibold, also later of Sonic Youth. Mosquito featured Steve Shelley with Half Japanese's Jad Fair, and Two Dollar Guitar's Tim Foljahn. The two bands toured Japan in 1993, they even made a split EP specifically for the tour. While Mosquito only lasted about a year, Free Kitten lasted into the next decade and amassed a sizable discography. This original Free Kitten/Mosquito shirt, in deadstock condition, is from their Japanese tour.
