This is cool from Brazilian creative Butcher Billy. He's flipped on its head the band t-shirt phenomena in which bands and artists signal their musical heritage by wearing it emblazoned on their chests, knitting history to the present, conjuring associations for their fans. Billy explains:

This is a series that reverses the natural course of pop culture hierarchy - the influencer will sport the shirt of the influenced - completely messing with space time continuum and raising the question: Bands and musicians that became hugely influential in music history - would they, when alive or in an early stage of their careers, support the new acts that came decades after inspired by their own legacy?
