T-shirts

Without a doubt the best KISS T-shirts available direct from the UK are the custom air-brushed variety. Britain has 2 of the best KISS T-shirt artists in the world - Giorgio & Nick Smith.

Giorgio

Giorgio's custom t-shirts can be obtained by mail order or in person, check out the main Giorgio page or the Order Details page for more details.

Standard T-shirts

Since the reunion there has been a huge boom in KISS T-shirts, a majority of the new designs (including the cool new 'faces' shirts like the Paul Stanley one on the left) can be ordered in the UK from:-

Failing that you can also order them online from the USA at:-

Most of the new designs can be obtained from any of the above sites, including a  touch-sensitive T-shirt that plays part of 'Rock & Roll All Nite' when various parts of the KISS logo are touched (no joke!).
  

KISS Books

book5.jpg (3421 bytes)KISS books were always difficult to come by in the UK, however things have improved a lot since the reunion. Most major bookshops now stock many of the new KISS books including some of the American titles (such as 'KISS & Sell').

 

KISS Computer Games

A KISS Quake-style computer game is available right now, it is out for PC now and will be released on Dreamcast format soon.

A trivia style title is also in the works for the PC:-

 

KISS Kinetik Art
Kinetik Art is the latest in KISS merchandise from the UK. They work kind of similar to the lenticular cover of Psycho Circus, except this is a brand new technology that can hold up to 150 frames of video on a single card! This gives a really smooth and clear image, which to be honest is a bit freaky the first time you see it move, especially on the Gene card, completely original and over the top - perfect for KISS! Among the products available are a key ring with the morphing solo faces animation on it!
KISS Cameras
The latest KISS merchandise is about ready to be sold at the Farewell concerts - only Gene "King of Merchandising" Simmons could think this one up! You know how officially you are not allowed to take cameras into a KISS concert (yeah, right!)? Well Gene has come up with the idea of a disposable KISS camera that you are allowed to take in! But being KISS, this isn't an ordinary camera - it prints the name of a different KISS album on the bottom of each photo! The camera's will be sold at the concerts for $20 (about 13 quid), and should be available in the next few weeks. You have to admit, from a business point of view this is genius!

The picture to the right is the official advert, but I also have some other pictures:-

KISS Dolls / Other items

The merchandise that has been released since the KISS reunion in 1996 has been unbelievable,  name an item and there's probably a version out there with the KISS logo on it. KISS dolls are something that have taken off fairly recently (apart from the 70's versions of course), you can get anything from small action figures up to a 3ft singing dolls!

Best places to get them online are:-

  • Tracks
  • Spencer Gifts (USA) I ordered the 3ft Paul Stanley doll from here and it arrived from the USA in less than 1 week!!

Tracks also sell a lot of other KISS stuff, click here to order one of their UK catalogues, or download their latest product update (MS Word doc) or view some of their newest products.

Failing that try the main UK distributors or the stores listed below. Expect to pay anything from 7 to 20 for the small figures (cheapest I've seen was 7 on a market). The second editions of the figures can sometimes be found at some Beatties stores.
