  • You Gotta Keep Cheering
     
      'You Gotta Keep Cheering' is sort of like our motto. I scribbled it down in my notebook a few years back after hearing it chanted at a Broken Social Scene show in Sydney. It might seem a bit arrogant (Kevin Drew was chanting it to the crowd) but it was really the opposite. On the night he was feeding off the energy of the crowd, who were really into the gig, and feeding it back into the show. We liked the idea that you have to Keep Cheering or Cheery. Keep going and don't stop.

  • Hungry Colours
     
    Hand embroidered type based on The Unicorns' song 'Ready to Die'. But i've only just realised that i've been singing the song wrong all this time. He's saying cougars not colours but I think I prefer it this way.
    The type started out as a watercolour that you can see on our
    blog.  I thought it would be fun to embroider and see if I could reproduce the idea of mixing colours with thread.
