disturbia launch party

Disturbia are clearly stepping up their game, because when I first saw this flyer I presumed that their were launching their clothes at a club, but I now realise they’re actually opening a retail store in Newcastle, and that’s pretty impressive.

It’s also impressive that they’re going to have Godmachine and Drew Millward (who,of course, have designed shirts for Disturbia) in store on the launch night doing live art. I don’t know if I’ll be able to make it along (it’s about 2 hours from me), but the first 50 people to turn up will get a goodie bag, and the first chance to pick up the new collection of clothing.

I Bridge NC by R.Hero at Electrik Sheep

If all has gone to plan (this is robo-posted remember) I will be in bed in Newcastle having just enjoyed a great night out with the boys as this post goes live. I’ve visited Newcastle a lot as I’m half-geordie, but I’ve never sampled the nightlife (except for seeing New Found Glory, Fenix TX* and the RX Bandits there years ago, and getting knocked out by a flying stage diver). I’m also hoping that I got to visit the Electrik Sheep brick & mortar shop yesterday (again, remember, this is robo-posted), because I’ve wanted to go there for ages.

A Wolftastic design from Any Forty

by Andy on September 24, 2009

Any Forty (warning: Flash site) are a Newcastle-based brand, so anything good coming from there at the moment (because my beloved football team certainly isn’t doing good) deserved to be mentioned. There are quite a lot of styles being played with in their Big Cartel store, but that is due to most of the graphic tees being collaborations, and those collaborations have produced some excellent tees, they’re all very wearable, to the point where I don’t actually mind the inclusion of their name on the tees because they have at least attempted to style the text with the theme of the design (hating the brand name being on the tee does seem to be a bit of a theme for me at the moment, doesn’t it?).

I think I name-check Newcastle way too much on this blog considering I don’t live there and only go there about 4 times a years to see family and football, but this hoodie is yet another clever twist on the classic ‘I [heart] NY design that we see being played with so often that there could easily be an ‘I [heart]’ blog.

For those of you that are unaware, the bridge on the design is rather-famous Tyne Bridge, which is a bit of an icon in the area, although over the past few years a lot of new landmarks have been erected, such as the Millenium Bridge, Sage Centre, and of course, the Angel of the North (not technically in Newcastle, but associated with the region).

Electrik Sheep: Prefab

by Andy on July 18, 2008


[I’m attempting another gallery, this time in place of the main pic, I’m not sure if it really ‘works’]

To support my spirtual brothers on the other side of the country in Newcastle, here’s a peak at Electrik Sheep‘s in-house line, Prefab, the first half of the line is instore and online now, and the second half should be on its way soon. I was quite surprised to see that the line follows streetwear style, I was expecting the tees to be more like the artwork that they sell under the Prefab name.

I dream of Electrik Sheep

by Andy on June 27, 2008

I might have mentioned in the past that I’m half-Cumbrian and half-Geordie (I’m like a human version of Hadrian’s Wall!), and whilst I live in Cumbria, I do make fairly frequent trips to the Republic of Geordania, so I was pretty excited to hear that next time I make a trip to Newcastle it will be to see more than just family and football.

Electrik Sheep is a damned cool Newcastle-based store that also sells its wares online. I could try and describe it myself but to be entirely frank they’ve done too good of a job on the blurb:

es_interior_1.jpg

Electrik Sheep is an independent graphic / clothing store and gallery in Newcastle, UK, selling hard to find brands from all over the world. We specialize in tees, hoodies, and accessories that we believe in and find inspiring, as well as producing a couple of our own brands, R.Hero and Prefab. We also hold exhibitions and give away loads of free beer.

Brand stocked include : 2K, Sixpack France, Perks & Mini, Uzi, UArm, Ubiquity Clothing, Rebel8, 10Deep, The Hundreds, House33, Special Needs, Something / Something Else, Diamond Supply Co., Prefab, R.Hero.

Free UK shipping, worldwide shipping available!

Next time I’m in the Toon I’ll make sure to swing by the shop and check it out, and hopefully get some of that free beer.
