« on: March 28, 2020, 01:09:43 PM »
If someone has got some time to spare  ;D, this website hosts a terrific archive of Blue Note's capo Francis Wolff photos of jazz greats. Let their beauty and cool relieve our current grim reality:

A heads-up for Weller fans: Dave "MC" Walker interviews Stuart Deabill on his upcoming book about The Style Council:

Mod fashion and style / the Italian job

Just for the movie fetishists with a well stuffed wallet:

Mod fashion and style / Beams +
« on: February 09, 2020, 03:33:05 PM »
Take a look at the upcoming Japan's Beams + collection and drool: seersucker and madras Ivy jackets and strides, OCBD shirts and popovers, plain-coloured or in beautiful patterns, Italian-looking knits, repp ties, surf striped t-shirts, the lot ... and then cry picturing the prices they'll command here  :-\

Films / TV / Kirk Douglas
« on: February 06, 2020, 12:09:04 PM »
One of the last greats from Hollywood golden days have left us. He was a force of nature, one of the best actors in effortlessly conveying that elusive joie de vivre feeling. His energetic, James Cagney-like, performances are unforgettable and he graced some of the best movies of the 20th Century, in fact, too many to single out even a few. RIP: Kirk Douglas. They don't do 'em like that anymore.

General music chat / The Who

For those like me, hopelessly anchored in arcane bands and sounds, this maybe of interest. I remember fondly "The Kids are Alright" movie, every bit as responsible as "Quad" in my interest for all things mod:

Mod fashion and style / anglozine

Another brand launching new collection are Brit clothiers Anglozine. Continental inspiration for this one, as implied even by the name ("Gascogne 3"). Windcheaters, sports jackets, breton jumpers, polos and the like with a sailing vibe form the core of the collection and tbh most of them look fine but nothing has got me too excited, less so at the prices they ask for. To me the best of the bunch are the cord strides, with some nice details as frog-mouth pockets, central crease and that cuffs' inverted V. I'd definitely wear them but no way I'd pay 200 for cotton trousers. 

Mod fashion and style / New Baracutas

First batch of Baracuta SS 2020 range are now arriving to their website. Nothing too exciting, tbh, just classic stuff (and some misguided hybrids) but the suede numbers are, as expected, gorgeous (a lot of colours too). Mind you, prices are nose-bleeding, as expected (650 !!)

General music chat / Marc Bolan
« on: January 11, 2020, 01:21:15 PM »
Another interesting (and surprisingly cheap) comp that gathers the pre-TRex Bolan stuff (including his John's Children's output) on a handy package. There's also a book/CD on the pipeline that will gather some long lost manuscripts, poems and drawings of Bolan with this same CD, maybe that's why this 1st edition is cheap.

The ancient, dusty music lover strikes again (evil laughter)!

General music chat / Mitch Ryder boxset
« on: January 08, 2020, 10:01:09 AM »
Due next month, this boxset is essential for blue-eyed soul lovers. Ryder's Detroit Wheels' phase has been well served by reissues (Sundazed did an outstanding job), but this is a handy way to own almost everything the band recorded PLUS the first solo LPs by the rasp-throated Detroiter (hey, Mike!) in a lush package. Garage-soul at its best courtesy of the ever reliable Cherry Red Records fellas:
