Todd Sampson (MIA) R.I.P. 7/25/10

We are sad to bear the news that M.I.A. singer Todd Sampson passed away this weekend.

This Las Vegas Weekly article by Spencer Patterson filed July 25th, 2010 provides some background but does not have a cause of death determined.

Friend and photographer of the band Jesse Nabers informs of us a memorial show being organized, we will post that information when it becomes available to us.


I am totally shocked. I was just getting to know Todd, as a great musician and performer, and above all as a friend. He was a real natural.

Here at Alternative Tentacles, we are devastated. Our hearts and wishes go out to his son Daz, his girlfriend, the MIA family, and all those who loved him.

Whatever you do, please don't give up. Todd never did. He will be truly missed.


The classic Bat is BACK!

Back in stock, it's the CLASSIC Bat logo shirt, now in black, white, & long-sleeve black. All are on American Apparel (except the 5XL one).
