Who decides what is ‘perfect‘, and what is not? Or one might say, what is beautiful and what is ugly? How can anyone decide on something that is so subjective? And yet somebody does. Our lovely intern Sara Hesikova investigates.

The Ultimate Rock ‘n’ Roll Bootleg

The Ultimate Rock ‘n’ Roll Bootleg

June 2014

It sounds like a fantasy, akin to a supergroup line up: A Robert Frank documentary of the Rolling Stones on the road?

July 2013

Vintage fashion is more popular than ever. Is it a statement against the lack of quality and individualism on the high street? On the other hand, vintage echoes of mothballs, coffee stains and Austin Powers movies. Is it a silly trend that is going to die, or a subculture that’s here to stay?

June 2013

There are few more disposable things than an independent band in London, and few less common characteristics of that independent band than patience, intellect and humbleness. That’s why I’m very much in love with Grass House.
