“All Known Metal Bands” t-shirt by Custom Flotilla

Custom Flotilla – “AKMB Black” t-shirt (2014)

I started Custom Flotilla in 2014 as a brand of novelty t-shirts, determined to cash in on my clever ideas and create a “revenue stream,” which was all the rage then (and continued to be all the rage in my head). The first shirt, used to successfully launch CF through an Indiegogo campaign, lists all the heavy metal band names starting with “black” from my 2008 book “All Known Metal Bands.”
