Just a short note to give a headz-up to Swifty and the I-self’s latest venture – http://www.stereophonic-supply.co. Building on what we were doing with Straight No Chaser magazine the initial aim of this project is to go digging in the visual archives of artists who we’ve worked with or would love to work with and then come up with several pieces (for sale!) that would accompany an interview and a “Mixtape” put together by the artist.
First up comes the legend that is Ian Wright – a brilliant and innovative illustrator. I’ve known Ian since NME days while Swift shared a studio with him during The Face era when Neville Brody was based in East Road. Wrighty is a serious music fan… check his dub-wise roots reggae “Mixtape” for proof… I’m almost scared of doing a follow up of my own! The bar has been set!
We thoroughly enjoyed a trip to the coast to interview Dr. Bob Jones – a DJ whom deserves an honorary PHD in black music. Check out the vid of him on the front row of a mid-Sixties Hendix gig and then savour his “MOD-ern Mixtape” of Sixties gems. Expect Bob’s ‘Sound Of The Drum’ family tree to drop SOON!
Add to the stereophonic-supply mix Swifty’s hand printed tees, his Sunday Afternoon at Dingwalls “jazz classics” and our Word Sound & Power graffix and we have lift off.
