I'm back.



I've just returned from London and quite naturally, I had the greatest summer of my life. 6 weeks in what most were saying was London's hottest summer in years. Love to my friends that side, old and new. I'll be back soon.

Then.
















I have to thank Susie Bubble for these images. I was so taken aback (read confronted with true love) when I saw these clothes and photos, that I had to put them up here too. Beautiful photos featuring designs from a woman called Anne-Marie Beretta who was very successful in the 80s. Not much else to find about her unfortunately, but I'm intrigued nonetheless.

Death Day.


Ian Curtis died this day 30 years ago, in 1980.



Never forgotten.

Obsession Hurts.



I have a new-found love for this Mancunian duo, previously known (and loved) by the name "Daggers". They've since changed their look, line-up and sound (to an extent) and it works. They also have that Roxy Music-new wave thing going on and they are pretty much the poster boys of the Hedi Slimane thin-boy-in-a-band-with-nice-clothes thing.

Daggers.

The following are photos from Dazed & Confused's April issue and Hedi Slimane's session with the boys, as well as their brand new video for "Better Than Love" (which is an old Daggers track I remember being emailed to me by the band themselves! That is if I remember correctly. They sent 2 tracks, I forget which.)



PS I will be seeing Hurts and Roxy Music at the Lovebox Weekender on 18/19 July! I die.

Lower Your Eyelids to Die With the Sun.

I lost a friend today. My best little friend.




I feel truly heartbroken.

Goodbye, Malc.







Unhappy faces all around. Another sad death this year, this time its the father of punk.

His genius will be missed.
