Marky Mark and King Lee.

Marky Mark and King Lee, where does one begin to describe the sounds of two disco junkies... i can only put it one way, and im going to use an analogy if i may, its like getting a blender and throwing in a bit of Michael Jackson, Iggy pop, hard funk, and smooth house, fidget electro, bit of b-more, The Prodigy, M.I.A., and everyone in-between, and seeing what sound it makes as its blending, and for those of you who havn't been fortunate enough to catch them at play, it sounds fucking good. 

These two will get you so antsy in your skinny leg pantsy's that u won't be able to stop dancing unless they stop playing, it's like you don't have a choice, they're infectious party kid spirit doesn't permit it. 

But enough form me, i caught up with them a week back for their set at Chinese Laundry, where they hold a fortnightly residency, and asked them a few quick (and i mean QUICK) questions. This is how it went...;

How long have you guys been doing this for?
Just over 3 years now.

What are some of your biggest Influences?
Al bundy...Honestly..!!...

Where can we catch you doing ure thing live?
Chinese Laundry boooooooyyyy..
Also check out to check out our partners in crime.

How did you get into it?
We got into DJ'ing cause we got sick and tired of playing to no one in our garage.

What made u want to become a DJ?
Tits and beer baby!!

In 5 words describe your sound?
Only one word can describe our sound.....CHWELVE!!!..

Popissue - Black Heaven Aw 09/10

Popissue - Black Heaven

Konrad Opala, creator of Popissue clothing.

Originally from Poland, Konrad hit our shores about 5 years ago and is creating alot of hype. I've been fortunate to know the man for some time, even having the ability to do some work experience with him, and I see that this label is going nowhere but up. 

His Collections have come a long way since I first stumbled across it back in 2005, tee shirts with graphic prints were the basis of the label. watching the label evolve over the years into the punk chic, rock and roll dinnerware label its become today has been quite a journey. 

Recently I was fortunate enough to catch him for about half an hour and have a chat, this is how it went;  

How long has the label been around?

Around 5 years.

How has it grown since u first started it?

We started with 150 T-shirts, now we are selling throughout Australia and overseas, we are also doing denim, shirts, vests, jackets, etc.



Have you got any big shows coming up?

We are planning on doing RAFW in May in Sydney, we are also thinking about Paris Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2009.



What are your biggest influences?

Most inspirations for me come from my music idols from 70’s, 80’s and 90’s – I love watching their clips, listening to that music and all that is surrounding this atmosphere: movies, art. My passion is art, I always use my art in my designs. I want to create something more “me” that will distinguish us from the crowd, and I put a lot of work into it.



Where are you stocked in Australia and around the world?

We are present in most cities in Australia – from Sydney to Perth. In Asia we are, among others, in Harvey Nichols and Lane Crawford. We are also working on entering European boutiques – from Madrid to Berlin.


What else do you have besides the label?

Besides the label, there is no time for anything! I love painting, and sometimes I get an exhibition of my art, but recently I've had no time to paint.



What can we expect from the next collection?

Definitely something different from previous collections. It will be braver, sexier, magical and uniqe.

Looking forward to the release of the next collection, i've seen some of the designs and it looks wicked. If you want to know more about anything that Konrad is doing hit him up via email it's; .

Lookbook will be posted separately.

Peace out rockers.


ps. stay tuned to the blog for notifications of his next sample sale, Rockin threads, cheap cheap.

My Blood Is Boiling, Ah.

I told you i'd bring to you what has been kept behind locked doors and here it is, 'My Blood Is Boiling, Ah.' is a refreshing change from the electro clash trash shit the city we call home manages to throw at us from just about everywhere. Deep house, Acid beats, Minimal tech. Explosions in the sky cause its blood to boil, not pleasant, this mix however is. Dirty tracks from unknown artists all over the world together in one place. Kinda chilled, a little bit chaotic, designed to get your blood Boiling. Check it out, comments welcome.

Check out more about him on his website.
