This is a pretty cool concept/story via Tres Records:
“In 2008, TRES released the self title album “Johnson&Jonson,” by Blu and Mainframe. Besides the grimy flow, and raw loops, one of the other most memorable aspects of the album was the Red Baby a.k.a Johnny. The baby was conceived by artist, Shawn Barber, who also had other works which were featured on the 12″ singles for J&J. When doing shows, J&J would actually bring along Johnny with them on stage and flaunt him, almost as if it were the third member of the group. This continued on until the Red Baby was stolen at one of their shows in San Francisco. Soon after, flyers online could be seen asking “Have you seen the Red Baby? report “Johnny to 1-800-johnson.” Johnny is still missing till this day…… In memory of Johnny, and the J&J album, we are doing a limited worldwide release of Red Baby T-Shirts, as well as Red Baby Crewneck Sweaters. Shirts will be available in Black and White, and the sweaters will be available in Black and Gray. These items are now available for preorder at Tres’s official ebay store ( http://stores.ebay.com/tresrecords). All preorders have to be made by purchasing it at Tres’s ebay store by 2/24/2010. We are going to make the exact quantity we get preorders for. These items are not going to be available for sale after the deadline date of preorder. Both T shirts and sweat shirts are scheduled to be shipped on 3/10/2010.”
