{MUSIC MINUTE} “ALL APOLOGIES” – NIRVANA

 

Kurt Cobain- King of Irreverence- The Eye of Faith Vintage- Mens Style Inspiration-1

As the title of this song says, “All Apologies”!!! Mostly for our truency. Have been having a very busy 2016 thus far, but can’t wait to be back. Got a few things planned up our sleeves, so please stay tuned. . .

In the meantime, enjoy this video, and this classic angsty tune by the King of Irreverence himself, Kurt Cobain. Filmed at Reading Music Festival in 1992, the video was posthumously released in 2009 by Geffen Records.

Oh my god! Those rings though . . .

Check it, peeps. Don’t be afraid to wear what’s tattered and torn. Use it to your advantage and make a layered, irreverent nod to a classic look, but now you’re actually onto something… innovative, too!

And if you’re into this post, be sure to check out our interview with Chad Channing – Nirvana’s first and original drummer!

E.O.F. Presents +KNIGHTS OF THE SANDCASTLE+

+KNIGHTS OF THE SANDCASTLE +

There once was a mysterious band of knights who roamed and raved their days and nights along the banks of the cool dark waters. Young and wild, they howled at the moon like the wolves, and on the clear days when the sun seemed to sparkle like diamonds on their faces, they stood sullen like statues of antiquity before cawing and cooing outrageously to their peers. 

They sat watching the crowd waves roar; the boardwalk full of walking visitors, strange and new from far away places, that would all turn away in disdain from the boys of summer, sensing somehow their mighty position above it all . . .

They weren’t there for the sights and sounds, instead vying for an order of things far from the distressing quarrels of everyday society. 

Simple positions shared amongst them all. One assigned to watch, another to distribute, another to discover, and the rest to play by the rules. No one over stepped a turn at the bottle, for each one knew that their last could be any day.  Neville, one of the leaders, would say, ‘Never shy from your true colours’ and these they would display with unbroken pride.

Your honour was earned by the friendships you garnered and gathered. 

Some say they had magic on their sides; magic powers taken from the ages, used to ensure their place along the sand dunes. Others say they made friends easily, but were actually ghosts playing games on the common folk. 

Only one place in the world for them. A sacred fellowship that haunts us all to this day . . . 

I like to imagine seeing them there every time I go back to the seaside. Guarding their little corner of the Earth, and protecting the small sliver of paradise they managed to claim as their own.

Sometimes I can hear them sing their favourite tune; a memory that wavers from faded dream to brilliant exuberance.

 It was a familiar one made their own by one of their musically gifted initiates – 

 

“Going down to Stoney End.

 I never wanted to go down to Stoney End. 

Momma let me start all over! 

Cradle me Momma!

Cradle me Again . . . “

Black Leather Jackets- The Twilight Zone- Style Wise- The Eye of Faith Vintage- 1964- 3

The second we found this episode of the classic TV series ‘The Twilight Zone” we could take our eyes off of it! Three leaders of the pack clad in “Black Leather Jackets” and black masks open off the episode in what turns into a salacious ride through 1960s paranoia, mystery, conspiracies, and of course, style.

Surely you can see where some of David Lynch’s inspirations may have arisen from in “Twin Peaks” as you watch Shelley Fabares’ ‘Ellen’ get picked up for a night ride by the adorably mysterious Lee Kinsolving as ‘Scott’ on a righteous 1960s motorcycle.

Hot People in ‘Nirvana’

Watching the Grammy’s last night, we saw so much of the FooFighters, we couldn’t help but reflect on where David Grohl came from! Only a somewhat iconic band called Nirvana!

So on this manic fashion Monday, we wanted to reflect some more on the band that was, which not only stapled itself into music’s history, but also created a fashion legacy.

Here are some Hot people rocking the ‘Nirvana’ Look!:

So Come as you Are!

Sincerely,
The Eye xx
