Band of Skulls

http://www.myspace.com/bandofskulls



New band Band of Skulls. With debut album entitled Baby Darling Doll Face Honey, and loving the single 'I know what i am".


In my opinion they are a mix between The White Stripes and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs.


Southampton born and bread.. definitely ones to watch in 2010 i think.

A truly moving, inspirational and emotional film. Probably one of the best films I've ever seen. Although difficult to watch at times, the true harsh reality shines through, an absolute must see to all.

Josh Goot-Catwalk collection..graphic HEAVEN.







Australian designer Josh Goot showed a divine, blindingly bright SS2010 collection at London Fashion Week earlier this week, presented in an open air car park - a suitably urban location given the collection's powerfully modern feel.




The collection, made up mostly of elongated t-shirt dresses, mini dresses and tanks, was all about bold graphic prints. The pieces themselves, which also included a handful of pants and jackets, were kind of secondary, acting more like personal, mobile canvases for the beautifully sharp, urban graphic prints that adorned them.
