Ashes57 X SWAMP81 X Donuts

December 13th, 2013

For July 2013′s Independent Label Market in London, an ‘outline’ version of the classic SWAMP81 VS Donuts 001 tee was produced.

Conceived as a blank canvas these tees were customised on the day by, amongst others, Loefah, Chunky and Neezy.

The task of decorating the original acetate used to produce the tees fell to Ashes57, whose artwork has been as intrinsic to SWAMP81 as the unique sound it has forged since 2009.

This December the design will be reproduced as a limited edition tee, available in store Thursday 19th from 7PM.

Online pre-orders are available now but please note that we cannot guarantee delivery in time for Christmas.

Donuts 6th Birthday

September 10th, 2013

In the last 6 years we’ve thrown a lot of parties; from shutting down the tiny and infamous Tube putting Jammer and Ghetts in there to taking over a forgotten foyer in the Colston Hall for 3 hours of sublime disco and loops with Soundstream, it’s always been about putting on the music we’re feeling.  At this point in time that’s summed up pretty perfectly by just two people.

Kindred spirits from opposite sides of the Atlantic, Kyle Hall and Funkineven know their way around a drum machine like few others. Separately and together under their FUNKINEVIL moniker they produce some of the rawest, realest music out there and we’re very excited to present a rare extended B2B from them to celebrate 6 years of Donuts as clothing store and party.

In support we have heads of the newly founded and already essential Happy Skull imprint The Kelly Twins, plus our very own Tom D.

First release tickets £10 from RA now and other outlets soon.

SWAMP81 VS Donuts Independent Label Market Special

July 12th, 2013

Saturday 13th July sees London’s Old Spitalfields play host to Independent Label Market with the heads of 50 of the UK’s best independent record labels coming together to sell vinyl and provide a reminder of the joy of buying music face to face in an increasingly digital world.

10 of these labels have cut a record especially for event and SWAMP81 is amongst that number.  50 copies of Loefah’s first release in 5 yearswill be available on the day, priced £10 and with the proceeds going to Oxfam’s Syrian refugee appeal.

To mark the occasion a run of 100 of the SWAMP81 VS Donuts 001 tees have been produced in a white/outlined black colourway.  These will be available at the Independent Label Market and from Donuts on Saturday.

In addition a number of these tees and the acetate used to produce the screen for them will be customised by artists affiliated to SWAMP81 before being auctioned for Oxfam.

Shorts Under The Spotlight

June 13th, 2013

We’re pretty pleased with our SS13 shorts selection at Donuts; crisp chino shorts, polka dots and animal print, the nautical and the botanical.  With this in mind we thought we’d run you through some of our offerings from Wood Wood, Norse Projects and our new arrival Percival Menswear.

Norse Projects’ Aros Chino short (£80) has been a staple in their collection and many a wardrobe for a few seasons now.  For SS13 it’s been joined by the Piet Botanical short (£80) in Leaf Green and Old White.  Cut slightly longer and from a lighter weight cotton this is one of our favourite pieces from Norse this year.

There are some however, for whom shorts should sit firmly above the knee.  For those amongst us Percival’s Flag Print canvas short (£105) is perfect.

Using British cotton, printed in London, Percival have created a a really sharp, very British short to get a bit of tan on those thighs.

Keeping things looser Wood Wood give us the Swahn Polka Dot (£80) and Anton Animal Print (£110) shorts.  The Swahns are elasticated and net lined for swimming but still feature pockets so aren’t exclusively for the water.

The animal print on the Antons is one of our favourite patterns of the season and, should you want to get an a Wiley tip, we have the Andrianov jacket to match.

All these shorts are available now online and from Donuts in Bristol.

New Works: David Addison & Victoria Topping

January 31st, 2013

This Saturday two of our absolute favourite artists and people are launching an exhibition at the Centrespace Gallery in Bristol.

Works include large scale paintings, prints and site-specific installations including several collaborative editions.

Having both cut their teeth designing imagery for the local club scene, both artists return to Bristol for a joint exhibition of their solo personal work.


Victoria Topping is an illustrator and visual artist based currently based in London.

Not wanting to limit herself to just being an illustrator, she has worked in designing the identity of an independent record label; worked with several respected musicians to do their cover art; designed and made many bespoke wallpapers; hand painted murals; been an interior designer and designed and installed a record shop, club and the decor for festivals.
She draws inspiration from her passion for music, specifically Jazz, Soul, Funk and Disco. This vibrant scene has given her an everlasting source of joy and focus. She collects records and any visual snapshots she can find of the musicians and dancers she admires, from her favourite avant jazz composer Sun-Ra right through to her favorite disco star Sylvester, and even dipping in to the colour palette of Soul train.

She has recently completed commissions for See No Evil, The Garage (Leeds), IN:motion, Love Saves The Day, Zap Mama, crazy p and many more.


Daddison (David Addison) is a visual artist and designer currently based in Berlin and working in a wide variety of media, from paint on canvas to product design, web design and video.

His personal practice utilises a own highly stylized collection of motifs, symbols and text to draw the viewer in – personal messages and references are often hidden in the work, disguised behind ambiguous wording and imagery, inviting the viewer to form their own interpretation. As well as participating in group exhibitions across europe over the last 3 years, he has produced commissions for the likes of Ralph Lauren, Adidas, Eastpak, Ikea and many more.


Private View: Saturday 2nd February, 6.00pm – 9.00pm.
Drinks kindly provided by Budvar.
Music from Ghettospheric and Idle Hands.


To coincide with the show a t-shirt has been produced featuring a collaboration between the two artists.  These will be available on the opening night and then at Donuts from Monday 4th February.

Offers will continue throughout December and in true advent style they’ll probably get better and better but remember -each is only available for 24 hours so don’t sleep.

SWAMP81 VS Donuts 003 “Ugly Mug”

November 19th, 2012

Donuts has worked again with Loefah’s SWAMP81 record label to produce a limited run of t-shirts.

003 gives a nod to Chunky, the MC whose voice has become almost as synonymous with the SWAMP81 name as Loefah himself.

The tees are on sale at now and will be in store at Donuts, Bristol from Thursday 22nd November.

Coming in black or white, just 60 of the SWAMP81 VS Donuts 003 “Ugly Mug” tees will be available.

The Trilogy Tapes

November 16th, 2012

You will more than likely be familiar with Will Bankhead’s work, you perhaps just don’t know it yet.

Responsible for some of the most inspiring album artwork of dance music in the 90s, his output with fellow art directors of the Mo Wax label Futura, Swifty and Ben Drury led to iconic covers such as UNKLE’s ‘Psyence Fiction’ or DJ Shadow’s ‘Entroducing’.

His work didn’t stop in the 90s though, as recent collaborations with Joy Orbison, the Hessle Audio camp and Honest Jon’s go to prove.  Future classics bear his bold and often simple aesthetic for current generations to one day reminisce over in the same way we do about about the Trip Hop days of Mo Wax.

As well as finding the time to create such masterpieces he also runs a label and fantastic blog under the guise The Trilogy Tapes.  A flurry of killer releases have secured the label as one of the finest when it comes to techno and the tougher spectrum of house.  As well as these quick-to-sell-out vinyl only releases, a mix tape series made up of phsyical tapes recorded by some of the scene’s figureheads also accompanies t-shirts as output from the TTT moniker.

We’re proud to be stocking a selection of t-shirts from The Trilogy Tapes which can be found over at the store here.

Uno One x Daddison | ALPHABET

January 17th, 2012

New for 2012 comes a collaborative project between two of Bristol’s hardest working figures – Uno One Print and Design and Daddison.  The series of t-shirts entitled ‘Alphabet’ will run the course of the year with a new letter of the alphabet appearing every couple of weeks.  Each letter will be released in limited numbers of 20 and will complete the entire alphabet by the end of 2012.  The motivation of the project is to explore different forms of printing, embroidery and garment decoration and a recognition of the diversity of typography.

‘A’ has just been released and is available instore at Donuts and online here as well as through Uno One’s Big Cartel store.  Both figures have worked with a variety of other designers, artists, brands and labels previously so expect some very exciting collaborations to follow..

Asics & Donuts

December 21st, 2011

While everyone loves an Air Max 1 (us included) there really are only so many colour permutations Nike can go through, plus with Size? getting their hands on every Quickstrike release going it’s increasingly difficult to find a pair of kicks that let you stand out from the crowd.

One brand retaining that exclusivity that has heads fiending like they did for Nike a few years back is Asics.  With their Patta collaborations and ongoing work with Ronnie Fieg (see the understated but jaw-dropping “Salmon Toes” above) they’ve produced some of the best looking running shoes of the last 5 years and with that in mind we’re proud to announce that as of next month Donuts will stock selected Asics models.  We are stoked.

Dubloaded Xmas Dropout Special

December 13th, 2011

Every month since 2008 Dubloaded has seen utterly implausible lineups somehow grace the small backroom of the Croft, but tomorrow sees the last of these regulars as the team shift focus to bigger, more sporadic events for 2012.  Obviously they’re going out with a bang though and Loefah, BunZer0, Pinch, Peverelist, Mensah and Chris Farrell will all be taking to the decks for a later than usual 3am finish.  No advance tickets for this one and you know we’re not hyping when we say it will be ROADBLOCK.  See you there.


December 8th, 2011

7 years today since Dimebag passed and still nobody can touch him on guitar. If his solo on Floods doesn’t give you goosebumps there’s something wrong with you.

Probably best not to take Phil’s advice about the heroin though.

£20, available here.


October 10th, 2011

It’s been a long time coming but our new Crazylegs website finally went live on Friday, largely thanks to a lot of hard work from Daddison and Shandy.  From now it’ll be the home to all things Crazylegs-related, including exclusive content like track downloads and mixes, so we won’t say too much about it here, just go check it out :)


September 28th, 2011

Seeing as summer may have finally arrived, albeit seemingly just to taunt us briefly before October freezes us solid, we thought now would be a good time to take another look at these vests from BTG and also to ask Claudio and Ross, the guys behind BTG, a few questions.


CL) We started a blog because we were both new to London and wanted to work together on a project. We met up at a pub and had this idea to do a flyer/magazine first. Thank god we didn’t go through with that! I was booking a club in West London called Market Place at the time. I started a little party called Bridging the Gap on the last Thursday of the month where I just booked a friend to play. No identity, no brand at all. Then after speaking with Ross about wanting to do something together I figured we could actually make something out of this little thing I had started.

RG) As Claudio said, we were both new to London. I had booked his boys (ASM) a couple of times for a party I used to co-promote in Oxford, but I’d never actually met him. We seemed to hit it off and after a few ales we had the idea to start a poster/magazine… in hindsight, a great idea. The blog came about as an extension to the party. Somewhere to promote the nights, share our love for music, visuals, art… you know, nothing very original. The pub was The Island Queen if I remember — well worth a visit if your round Angel way. They do great fish and chips.

RG) Thanks! Our identity has probably come from the posters, although I must admit we’ve never really considered the look. Its kinda evolved with each project. The emphasis on the posters has always been on the graphics as opposed to the line ups and information — we like to do things back to front. I’ve always been a fan of “International Typographic Style” and Swiss design that was pioneered in the 1950′s. That, and the whole Modernist thing can be seen influencing a fair chunk of the BTG aesthetic. I wouldn’t say we’re trying to have a particularly rigid style, who knows what the next tee release could bring. Oh, Claudio chose the logo… in hindsight, a great choice. People seem to like circles.

RG) To be honest I can’t exactly remember how that came about. I think a few of the older posters for the party were originally picked up by the design blog Typocircle. A few more blogs started featuring them such as ISO50 and then the showcase site Behance. It kinda snowballed from there really and one day I got an email from German publishers Gestalten asking if they could feature them in a forthcoming title called “The Modernist”. Obviously I was pretty happy about that. The overall response we’ve had from the artwork has been great. In fact we’re looking at having a little show at an ad agency in Soho soon, a retrospective of all the posters.


CL) I’m the head of programming at The CAMP. I currently book parties and art curators there.


CL) No, Five Easy Pieces started at Cargo. I used to do programming there before I moved to The CAMP. I founded FEP with my then boss, Tom Lilley (who now is the head of bookings at XOYO), because we were throwing loads of cool parties but were always behind Cargo’s brand. We thought if we started up our own thing we’d be able to do parties around the UK and Europe. We stopped it after it was bought though. Tom left to work at Modular and I was at The CAMP and we both needed to find our feet. After he moved to XOYO we thought it might be a good idea to start it up again, but instead of just doing parties we thought it would be cool to start releasing music. We needed the physical aspect of the label to accompany it, so that we weren’t just another new label. We decided that we would make the records more like collectible objects than flimsy 12″s in generic disco bags.


CL) Yeah, the Call Super EP came out a last month. Its great because had Objekt’s remix of Timora the #1 club track in their top 20 for a while. Made me so happy to see that! Next up is another Royalty release which should be out in November. And, we’ve also signed two new acts: Midnight Davis and My Panda Shall Fly. The Midnight Davis will be out in sometime near the Royalty one and we’re going to open up 2012 with the My Panda Shall Fly EP. I can’t wait. Its also worth mentioning that all the FEP stuff is designed by Ross, starting from the logo all the way down to our newsletter. As you can probably tell, I place a really high emphasis on strong design. I really like working with Ross so it’s natural, I think we both have very similar tastes. I’m really looking forward to seeing what FEP003-005 look like, he always seems to raise the bar.

Swamp81 VS Donuts 001 available now

September 17th, 2011

Founded in 2009 and taking its name from the London Metropolitan Police’s 1981 stop and search operation, Swamp81 is the record label of pioneering producer and DJ Loefah.

Recent Swamp81 releases have relied heavily on the timeless sounds of the Roland TR-808, a drum machine whose unmistakably distinctive bass drum and hollow, plastic handclaps serve as the foundation upon which much of the last 30 years of popular music have been built.

This September Swamp81 and Donuts will be joining forces to produce the first in a series of collaborative t-shirts; limited to 100 pieces and never to be reprinted.

The tees are borne of the same aesthetic as much of the Swamp81 catalogue, minimal in design and stripped of excess featuring a direct reference to the classic Roland instruments of the 1980′s.

Two colourways will be released; white print on a black tee and black print on white. Both are available in store at Donuts and from now.

Martyn on Boiler Room Tonight

July 26th, 2011

We’ve been Martyn fans for a long time here at Donuts but he really bought a special place in our hearts (no homo) when he dropped Gypsy Woman at Thekla last Easter and had the whole boat singing along.

He seemed to be a little quiet for a while but it turns out he was working on his album, set for release on Brainfeeder later this year, and preparing a brand new live show which he’ll be showcasing on Boiler Room tonight before he lets it loose on our Crazylegs stage at Underhill Festival on Friday night.  We are tres excited.

Analog Love Exhibition

July 19th, 2011

‘Analog Love’ is an exhibition of photographs and artworks by Alex Digard documenting the Bristol bass music underground. From the early ‘Dubplate Monthly’ (later the infamous ‘Dubloaded’) dances at the Croft to the iconic Rooted Records in Gloucester Road, some of the city’s most vital cultural hubs have been captured by his lens.

Perhaps it was the time spent as a press photographer or the hours spent studying the photographs of the Blue Note album covers that informed his aesthetic. Pure documentary, merging into the dark backgrounds and observing the events unfolding around him but never interfering with them, his pictures offer the viewer an insight into the intimate inner workings of the Bristol scene, from the disused bank vault turned studio below Stokes Croft that transmits the Panhead stream once a month to the Western Union nights in the Take5 cafe basement which serves as an incubator for the new generation of Bristol house music producers and DJs.

A selection of 16 of his photos were printed in the booklet accompanying the Punch Drunk Records compilation ‘Worth The Weight’, a double disc album that compiled some of the best dubstep records to come from the city since the genre’s humble beginnings back in 2006. More recently his pictures were selected by Resident Advisor to be used in their film ‘Real scenes : Bristol’, part of a trilogy showcasing cities with a strong electronic music community.
Aside from photographic work, Alex is also the editor of the Tape-Echo project, a publication and website focusing on Bristol’s electronic music community, with a strong leaning towards the more vinyl centric and analog ways of working. Through this he has designed and art directed projects for a number of record labels and exhibited artworks in galleries from Guernsey to Glasgow.
As well as photographic work there will be a selection of artworks utilising different media: ink stamps, film, Xerox copies, typewriters and dubplates are all different parts of his idiosyncratic visual language.

The exhibition opens on Thursday 21 July at the Idle Hands record store, Bristol’s hub for dance music vinyl. What better place for these pictures to be displayed than the very same kind of spaces that inspired the whole project in the first place?

Music on the night will be provided by the Tape-Echo DJs Neka and Transient as well as Ossia and Kowton, and the exhibition will be open from 7-10pm.

A limited run of zines containing some of the photos from the exhibition will also be available on the opening night.

TOOMUCHPOSSE! presents Abuze

May 12th, 2011

TOOMUCHPOSSE! have summer collection on the way and, to be honest, when I got an email from them I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t the preview images for that range. That didn’t last long though because instead it was a link to Abuze, a dope new zine from “2 prolific London graffiti writers”, now available over at the TOOMUCHPOSSE! site.

“These photographs only exist because we happened to be in whatever situation we were in, with a camera. This is not artifice, There is no posed merriment. We did not undertake our adventures with the sole purpose of publishing photographs like so many others appear to do. These are a glimpse into our lives, a handful of images from a collective catalogue which runs into the tens of thousands. All photos, No Bullshit, True friends, No borders, Fuck Cops!!”

ABUZE IS REAL from abuze on Vimeo.

Don’t forget we still have a few pieces from TMP’s pre-summer collection available at Donuts.

Dubloaded on Wednesday

May 9th, 2011

I’d planned to write a proper bit about this but Baobinga’s beaten me to it with his Northern witticisms so you’ll have to make do with the flyer and a link to the Bass Music blog.  Seriously, it’s much funnier than what I was going to write.

See you Wednesday.

Actual Pain SS11

May 4th, 2011

Actual Pain’s “Icons Of A New Mythology” SS11 collection dropped at Donuts a couple of weeks ago but we’ve only just got round to putting it on the website.  A few styles have sold out already so sorry if you missed them but follow this link to check the rest of it.

We’ve been sitting on the news of our forthcoming Donuts X Trapstar colab for a minute now but when Odd Future‘s Hodgy Beats and Syd Tha Kid passed through Trapstar’s West London store and clocked the sample the cat couldn’t stay in the bag any longer.

Andy Mac’s debut release on Punch Drunk is so very close and we’re stoked for him.  First time I heard this dropped at Dubloaded I was a complete sucker for it’s addictive hook and floating vocals.  Official release date is the 9th May but if you head over to the Punch Drunk site they have very limited white label test presses for sale.  Big up Andy and props to the Punch Drunk family!

New Deadstock at Donuts

February 26th, 2011

Idle Hands Store Opening

February 24th, 2011

Tomorrow the Idle Hands record store opens its doors at 74 Stokes Croft, where DMT used to be.  Great news for the music scene in Bristol.

Probation Vacation at

February 24th, 2011

As well as producing some of the best tees ever to grace the rails at Donuts, Too Much Posse maintain a blog, light on words but heavy on the images from which they draw inspiration. A key element of that is graff and with that in mind they’ve sourced a few copies of Probation Vacation, the long-awaited debut book by Danielle Bremner and Jim Clay Harper VI, aka UTAH and ETHER from NYC. Probation Vacation showcases a selection of photographs from Bremner and Harper’s vast archive of rare images that, until now, have been viewed by only their closest confidants.

Head over to the TMP site for more info or to make a purchase, each book is unique and priced at just £10.

Keep SS11 Navajo Pack Preview

February 22nd, 2011

Here’s a little preview of the Navajo pack from Keep’s SS11 collection, coming to Donuts in mens and womens sizes.

For this pack Keep have used “a dusty palette based on the medicine man’s eye, a design indicating wisdom and foresight”. They’ve also opted for a pesticide free, sustainably grown hemp rather than their usual canvas. We love them, we just hope they sell out before word spreads to St. Werburghs…

BTG X Donuts X EFA

February 21st, 2011

London’s BTG (Bridging The Gap) is a music and art blog that we at Donuts are big fans of so when they asked us to do a mix and interview for them we were stoked, although slack as ever about actually getting round to it. If you want to check it out then head over to their site, we wholeheartedly recommend the mix EFA put together.

Donuts- Joker, Tomb Crew & Superisk

February 18th, 2011

Tyler The Creator – Yonkers

February 13th, 2011


February 8th, 2011

Dubloaded regularly put on some pretty jaw dropping lineups, especially considering it’s a midweek affair that always costs an utterly reasonable £5, but this one has got more people talking than any I can remember.  Frankly it’s going to be fucking stupid and if you need to know why check the Boiler Room sets from last week or Addison Groove’s new Jukebox mix.

See you there.

J Dilla Changed My Life

February 5th, 2011

I’m ashamed to say I won’t be attending this but if I were in London tomorrow I sure as hell would be.  Y’all know why we’re called Donuts right?

February 3rd, 2011

Jordan III X OG Bulls Beanies

January 21st, 2011

Wooooooooooooooo I just copped the White/Cement Jordan IIIs!  With perfect timing we’ve got our hands on a few OG Chicago Bulls beanies and I actually can’t think of anything better to rock with these shoes.  £20 and available here.

Loefah on RBMA Radio

January 21st, 2011

Loefah is a g.  Noone would have hated on him if he’d merely rested on his giant DMZ laurels but instead he went and launched Swamp81, the label that did perhaps more than any other to change the face of dance music last year.  Recorded at Fabric and kicking off with the huge Sicko Cell (who the fuck made that?!) this mix is a perfect taste of that new direction and of what he’ll be destroying Basement 45 with next Saturday at Crazylegs.

Jordan III White/Cement Retro

January 20th, 2011

These are out on Saturday and not a minute too soon.  My True Blues are TRASHED.

Rockers NYC Holiday 2010

January 17th, 2011

A slightly belated drop for the Rockers Holiday 2010 collection but it’s too good to not mention.  The Actual Pain colab gets a reprint, this time on a sick Champion sweat, and the new, Raiders-based “Above The Law” design sneaks out early ahead of it’s full release for SS11.  Available now instore and online, crews £65 and tees £35.

UFO with Daniel Wang Jan 28th

January 13th, 2011

Every month I say I’m going to go to UFO and end up falling asleep on the sofa or doing something else lame instead.  Not this month.  I’m fricking going.

Fire Man Sam- Grimey New Year Mix

January 5th, 2011

Sam’s put together a new mix, pretty much all grime with a couple of bits of bassline and dubstep and a ton of exclusives.  Big.

Donuts is 3!

December 7th, 2010

We can’t quite believe it either but to thank you all for the support so far we have a very special birthday party planned..  Morgan Zarate will be joining us alongside the Futureboogie guys down at The Bank of Stokes Croft (Bristol) for a free party – all the way live til’ 4am!  Come eat some donuts with us xx

As well as the opening of his photography exhibition, this Friday sees the launch of Zoom’s clothing brand thiry5million.  The first collection, entitled “The Boogieman Project”, will feature tees and crews based around his borderline-obsessive interest in twisted clown masks.

Available from Donuts from Friday.


November 30th, 2010

We just received 3 new tees from London based brand Ranks.  Paying homage to their favourite dancehall artists by creating their “dream tour posters”, these are strictly limited numbers-wise and stupidly dope.

Deadstock Goodness

November 24th, 2010

We know how hard some of you fiend for those deadstock vintage pieces that are truly unique and we’ve been working hard to sate your hunger.  Coming this week will be a new drop of snapbacks, featuring the likes of the Raiders, Charlotte Hornets and LA Kings, and arriving today we had these Raiders tees, printed for a Raiders VS Kansas Cheifs game many years ago.  We still have a couple left but they probably won’t make it to the online store so holla on 0117 929 2625 if you want one.

The Daily Street Mix 007 – Blawan

November 15th, 2010

The Daily Street have been really on point with their mixtape series so far and the latest installment is no exception, coming from Hessle new boy Blawan.  There are some wicked unreleased bits on there from Midland, Pearson Sound and others but for me it’s the Harmonimix of Pev’s Roll With The Punches that makes this mix absolutely essential.

Paul White & Kutmah Podcasts

November 11th, 2010

Whilst my back has been turned Stones Throw records have been busy compiling new mixes for their podcast series and have hit jackpot with two recent offerings from Paul White and Kutmah.  South London based Paul White compiles a mix of strictly original music with remixes of two hip hop greats – Guilty Simpson and Talib Kweli.  Kutmah on the other hand digs for straight unreleased gems from a spectrum of sources including Ras G, Flying Lotus and Mono/Poly.  Head over to Stones Throw for the i tunes download links – this is essential listening.

November 7th, 2010

This month is Movember; when mo’ustaches and November come together to raise money and awareness for The Prostate Cancer Charity (TPCC), the UK’s leading prostate cancer charity.

FOO Magazine’s Crazylegs X Urban Nerds Video

November 4th, 2010

We’re a bit late posting this one but here’s the video from our Crazylegs X Urban Nerds show a couple of weeks back, courtesy of the guys at FOO Magazine.  It was pretty ridiculous, huge turnout and great tunes all night, with Sticky and Lady Chann being my personal highlight.  We had a LOT of fun, which is probably why none of us made it to the final cut of the video…

If you don’t know about FOO already, head on over to and check them out.

All I Want For Christmas

November 2nd, 2010

“The All I want for Christmas cards project is an annual festive project in support of the Bristol based charity “Young Bristol”. Now into its second collection the project brings together 20 illustrators from around the country whose specific works for the project have been used to create a limited edition collection of Christmas cards that will be sold as packs containing each of the 20 cards.”

The 2nd collection of these cards launches this Thursday at The White Bear with the original artworks being auctioned for the Young Bristol charity.  Expect music from special guest DJs and a rumoured appearance from a certain well-known-but-anonymous artist…  Oh and, as it’s The White Bear, too much tequila is probably on the cards as well (no pun intended).
