‘Fitzroy Mock n’ Roll’ , thank you trendy cafe and apartment culture and pizza parlours….“oh it’s tooo loud” say the tenants and “I wanna be boho-sheek” say the suburban and coke drinkers…. Live music keeps heading further North…. Northcote and Brunswick are starting to sport princesses and metrosexuals wearing ‘Blondie’ and ‘Ramones’ shirts as though a label – without an inch of true indy culture appreciation….I think calling your pizza parlour ’Bimbo’s’ is an indication of your clientèle oh and I think i even saw a toy dog in a gucci handbag in Brunswick the other day….. eeeeeeeek! oh and yes i fear change…and perhaps I am getting on in ears*

    hahaha! no, I fear the same…and I dont think anyone should be allowed to wear a Ramones tshirt unless they can at least sing some of the songs…or know that they were a band…and not an offshoot of the new Chanel collection…sigh. this is a funny shirt, nice one =)

    solution…get to spain. they know exactly what the hell indie is all about & quite simply live, breathe it. gotta get back there once again! some of the best indie clubs exist in bilbao (dead centre north of spain). nice to see others are as irritated on the matter, hehe:)
