I'm shocked, Claudio has renewed the DNA Groove's webstore!! Is there nothing sacred? Truth is the new website looks better  :)

General music chat / british motown
« on: February 09, 2019, 06:20:57 PM »
Motown buffs should check out this new Ace comp of british 60s singers and bands covering some Berry Gordy's label hits & misses. Some well known covers here -Steve Marriott's vocals on "You've really got a hold on me" still send shivers down my spine- but some surprises too (Cilla Black teaming with Sounds Inc?) and a fine overall selection:

Banter / Zurich
« on: February 09, 2019, 11:58:01 AM »
I'll be spending some days in Zurich next month. It's a family trip, so no pub crawling or club going for me, but any suggestions about shops, eating and sight-seeing will be much appreciated. And Laird, I already know they've got good chocolate, watches, cuckoo clocks and knives there!  ;D ;)

Mod fashion and style / Orlebar Brown

With some tasty polos and T-shirts, the London brand have proven they're not only about fine swim shorts. In fact, this wool cardie might be the best number I've seen from them so far (way overpriced, mind you):

After their boring & dull fall/winter offerings, the FP Reissues range present at last a few stylish numbers:

« on: January 10, 2019, 04:48:14 PM »
... And here are their plans to celebrate the anniversary properly (beware vinyl lovers):

These Reid Miles' framed prints look pretty cool, but they're ultra-expensive (a limited edition, it seems) and can only be shipped stateside:

Mod fashion and style / Italian knits
« on: January 08, 2019, 03:18:06 PM »
Some tasty made in Italy knitwear to begin 2019 in style (Prada, Maison Margiela, Brunello Cucinelli and the like), including some left-field choices with more of a 70s vibe.

As you might have guessed, you'll need some extra bucks to afford even the cheapest thing here, but we can still dream, can't we?









The cheapest of the lot, Daniele Fiesoli's rollneck, yours for 125 :







And selected especially for the Laird...

Mod fashion and style / REISS

Two newbies by Reiss, not in their sales of course (that means they're a bit pricey right now: 195 for the zipped cardie!).
