Official press release:
Founded on beliefs that are in short supply within the current underground music scene, Massachusetts Bane has established themselves as one of the most influential and relevant bands in hardcore today. Since their inception, they’ve become one of the scene’s hardest working bands touring the world over and releasing three full-length’s: 1999’s It All Comes Down To This, 2001’s critically acclaimed Give Blood, and 2005’s The Note.


Four years have passed since The Note was released, and the members of Bane schedules were looking busier then ever, finding the time to write a new full-length seemed unrealistic. In June 2009, the band booked studio time with Jay Maas at Getaway Studios and decided to go in and record however many new tracks they had at the time. A week later they emerged with six new songs all of them named after American soap operas, all six coming straight from their hearts.


Freed of any obligations from their long-time label Equal Vision Records, the new material will be released on various labels throughout the world, all of which will have their own signature title and cover art for the release. Various photographers were contacted in the different locations around the world where the records would be released and a photo shoot at the exact minute on the same day took place, seven photographers took a picture of their city skyline at that minute, on that day. For some it was 7:58 in the morning, for others 12:58 at night, but they all pulled it off and the photo they took would be the cover and the title of the release for each territory, Tokyo 7:58am, Dublin 11:58pm, Boston 6:58pm, Perth 7:58am and to be released by 6131 Records on December 8th – Los Angeles, 3:58 pm.

11th-Nov-2009 08:52 pm - Anatomica - Paris
ithyle, collodion, silver, wet plate, self portrait
A quick report on Anatomica, one of the city’s (Paris) best men’s shops. Anatomica is nestled on a quiet street right off of the famed Rue de Rivoli and sells an eclectic selection of French, Japanese and American goods, including goods under its own label.
Anatomica - Paris


Anatomica - Paris

I spent part of my recent trip to Europe searching for the last of the world’s great men’s shops. While not ancient in time or history, Anatomica takes you to another era. The shop carries Alden shoes and also make its own collection of shoes. While there, I got fitted for a pair of Aubergine Alden modified last's & I can’t stop thinking about those Anatomica buckle back trousers!

Anatomica - Paris

Anatomica is known for its love of the Alden modified last (which are also loved by the Japanese; in NYC check out Moulded Shoe on 39th Street) and are probably one of the few stores in Europe (correct me if I am wrong) to stock the modified last.

flew into Paris today. the past few weeks have been really crazy. one week in NY for meetings then off to Dakar, Senegal which was beautiful and depressing and hopeful and despairing.

Dakar, Senegal

Last week was in the UK which could not have been more beautiful if it wanted to be. who knew that autumn in England meant that you have perfect light ALL DAY?!?

and now Paris is crisp and pretty and makes me wish i had brought nicer clothes. and that i knew a lick of French.
