Incredible, kind of what I imagine the inside of Spike Jones head look to like.
“I think I’m supposed to be having a midlife crisis, you know? I’ve got the fast motorcycle and the young girlfriend, I’m considering buying a speedboat, my hair’s getting bigger and bigger. But I don’t feel old mentally in any way, shape or form,”

And what about this ‘lil flick, Harvey djing in a motorhome by the shore of a sunny LA beach break. Are you fucking joking me! Being able to snag a few waves whilst having Harveys beats in earshot, its so rad I might go on fire. (Edit: it was perfect right up til the moment a SUP’er slides into the party)
Just heard this on a great Kevin Parker Mixcloud set and perfectly suited todays blustery, brooding weather.
A couple of things I’ve seen this week that have made me sit up an take notice, firstly this lovely original Raleigh Team Panasonic track bike. You can see more pics here on CycleExif and get the full story. I was stoked to hear its been used in messenger service in Sydney as I have fond memories of passing the riders at St Martins Place on my way to and from work, this was many years ago though I know it sparked my curiosity of track bikes. I definitely think it should remain un-restored as it will only improve with age.
This other image is such a great big pile of radness that if I have to explain why you’re probably never going to understand. Via 8negro
I can feel the heat in the air and taste the cerveza, perfect blissed out summmer evening beat.
Wow look at this new Saturdays store in Kobe, looks incredible doesn’t it? I’m so glad to see how well their original aesthetic is holding up, it still looks brilliant especially in this new store. More pics here
When I first discovered their original NYC store some three or four years ago it really blew me away (original post). Since then they’ve curated a bunch of really interesting events and exhibitions. Supported and stocked a host of independent brands and surfboard board shapers. Established a full range of ‘surf apparel’ that doesn’t make you look like a dick. And generally had their original concept ripped off by countless other less imaginative surf shops/brands.
Now I know Saturdays weren’t the first people to sell surfboards, coffee and vibes but they’ve certainly capitalised on the groundswell (sic) of interest, I’ve even seen their range is now stocked by Selfridges in London. Some cynics will think that sucks but I think its a great achievement for a start-up brand and just means its much more convenient to get my hands on their threads.
I just heard this on 6music and it reminded me how fucking great KOL were when they first arrived on our shores ten years ago (really, 10 years) Youth and Young Manhood will always be one of my go to albums, although I became completely uninterested by anything by them after Aha Shake. Its like all that Sex on Fire shit was created by bad robot Kings of Leons and the real ones are tied up in a record company broom cupboard still to this day, perfectly preserved with beards, flares and Slade fringes still intact.
