Peter Edward Baker by Daniel Davidson

Ginger Baker, born 19 August 1939, a great musician who happens to be a drummer, erupted onto the public consciousness as the cofounder of Cream in 1966. Just about every band of note that came subsequently owes him and Cream a debt.  His work is polyrhythmic, spontaneous and in the moment. Particular stand out recordings are: the live version of Crossroads on Wheels of Fire, Cream ‘68; What a Bringdown from Goodbye Cream, ‘69; Do What You Like, Blind Faith, ‘69; East Timor, Going Back Home, Ginger Baker Trio with Charlie Haden and Bill Frisell,’94; Cyril Davies, Coward of the County, DJQ2O,’99. He is still earning his living playing, composing and arranging.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
