SECRETS FROM THE SOUTH

By  Benjamen Judd We are fond of a cult label. Particularly those mercurial ones that are not afraid to evolve into bigger and better things. Such as Sydney-based label the-designers-formerly-known-as Secret Squirrel. Who are now the designers known as Secret South.   The move to change their name reflects the evolving style and ethos of […]

MIDNIGHT IN THE GARDEN OF GOOD AND THE JUGGERNAUTS

By Benjamen Judd The Midnight Juggernauts are one of those bands that we have managed to keep up with despite our own impending ageing crisis. And we like that we have been able to do so, because it makes us feel like we’re still edgy like that.   Anyway, this month the Midnight Juggernauts are […]

SHADES OF BLUE

By Benjamen Judd To quote one of our favourite movies of all time, Empire Records, music is the glue that holds the world together. It’s the one art form that can unite people from all walks of life, can soothe the savage beast and inspire the hearts of men and so on and so on. […]

HEART OF GLASS

By Benjamen Judd Port Douglas is truly one of Australia’s most beautiful areas to visit. Even better to live, if you ask us.

Dan Withey at 19KAREN

The work of Adelaide’s Dan Withey combines detailed colour and illustration with his strong stance against globalisation and consumerism.

With 17 successful solo shows up his sleeves, Dan’s […]
