Funky Father's Fashion

01/09/2015 by Styled By Francesca

If there is one thing I remember as a child, is how well my Grandad use to dress. He was such a dapper man with his tailored suits, crisp shirts, slimline ties, braces, designer sunglasses and polished shoes. There really was no better dressed man (well, in my eyes anyway!). The great news is that the dapper man is back! This season we are seeing the comeback of the tailored pleat pants and the double-breasted jacket. Anything from bold prints and stripes. This season is seeing the comeback of the 60’s man with a modern twist.


The Man from U.N.C.L.E

01/09/2015 by Sam Tremayne

Once upon a time, Russians were always the bad guys in movies. It was perfect with their accents, their appearance and their opposing political ideology. Even more so in the setting of the Cold War when tensions between the USSR and the USA were on a knife’s edge. So, in setting a spy movie during this hostile period, the obvious avenue would be an ‘Us vs Them’ conflict. However, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. explores an interesting concept… What if both sides had to work together?

The Snowdroppers are an Australian blues rock band consisting of Johnny Wishbone on lead vocals, banjo and occasionally harmonica, Pauly K on lead guitar, Nick London on bass guitar and Cougar Jones on drums. Known for being a bit bada*s... (google what their band name actually means), The Snowdroppers are in Canberra this Friday to perform and launch their new album, BUSINESS. We had a chat to the boys ahead to find out more... What are three words that best describe The Snowdroppers? Consummate. Debonair. Hectic as.

The Steptones Step Up

24/08/2015 by Lucy Stone

We recently sat down with the Canberra four-piece, The Steptones, to chat about the local music scene, their new singles and a 'mind-blasting' new music video! Tell me about the new singles! We spent the whole summer doing a lot of thinking (and a little bit of arguing) and we wanted to come back with a product that we could be really proud of. We recorded twenty songs, narrowed those down to six, and have now have released two! What can we expect in terms of sound?
