you into fashion to begin with, and if so, whos'the bigger
fashionplate among you two?
We're both into looking
good and stylish. Not necessarily following a
certain fashion. We're more into breaking it up, mixing styles
*Who are your favourite
designers and why? Same goes for brands...
Not too good remembering
designers & brand names, but we like Whyred
cause they're good at keeping old classic styles up to date,
both very cool guys too! Julian Red for the super hot jeans
generally great gear and great taste in music. Kling for the
and anarchic approach! This guy in Amsterdam called Neonrider
making really good customized T shirts and Queens Of Sounds
colourful scarves, t shirts and Gucci like branding.
*How full is your closet?
Do you give stuff away?
Quality not quantity daｒling....
We give away the odd Cassette Records promo T.
*How much money are you
willing to put down for gear?
David: Not too much,
I just spill wine or ketchup on my clothes anyway...
Joe: ...but sometimes
you just gotta have them sneakers....
*What's a good accessory
for a guy to have? Same goes for girls...
For guys: Colourful scarves...
not al a Russel Brand though, but
massive scarves with nice tacky colours! Made patterned neon
*If your music were an
item of clothing, what would it be?
Mick Jones' red boiler
suit in -82 and Kool Keith's ski goggles. Imagine that sound!
* Here's a tricky one: is your music
fashionable? If so, what will you do when that's no longer
Please define fashionable.
If fashionable in this case means upfront and up to date then
we try to make music that will always be fashionable! BUT
there's nothing wrong with doing something that's so completely
NOW that it'll be hopelessly THEN in 3 weeks either. You just
bring your tune to the party and there'll always be another
party around the corner. As long as your honest about what
you do and believe in it (here's where the strings come in...)
*Neon and glowsticks in 2007, yes or
no (and why)?
Yes, as much as in 1989,
-97, -84 & 2000. Because it looks good. Feel the rush!!!
*What do you think of
people who customize their gear?
More power to em. It'd
be like asking a hip hop artist in -82 about
sampling someone else's music. Just be creative and innovative
you'll be cool.
* What type of scene did
you belong to in school and what did you look
like in terms of hair, clothes, shoes, accessories...
David: I belonged to
the one man punk rock scene in my school,
wearing all the classic punk stuff. I bought safety pins by
pound! Got a bit lonesome some times. But you gots to persevere...
Before that I was the first one with a W.A.S.P. back patch...
the headmaster call out for a parental meeting discussing
in this world...
Joe: unfortunately my
scene did not belong in school,spent our
time in record shops, and down covent garden checking out
dance moves ...our homework was doing new mix tapes dubbing
cassette decks.. wearing, colourful laces ,ski jackets and
hand customized goggles that we stole from science class!
