These X-Ray Spex shades’d better be thrifted by a discriminating hipster grrrl.





tweefied Swell Maps? It’s an empirical and sociomusicocultural truth that the enlightened set of tweesters like them and such as The Fall. And this famous new york hipster venue named after a Swell Maps song further attests to their in-popularity. 

Stating the obvious: Swell Maps are the ultimate hipster-hipster-hipster band. Non Swell Maps fans = wrong.

    Best album cover EVER and best “spex” EVER. I could not get into Swell Maps, who are kind of the exception to my love for all things Post Punk.

    P.S. Where is the first image from?

    from the movie “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”. Pee Wee has a would-be girlfriend Dottie who is quite Poly Styrene-ish. Dottie’s husky voice is really charming.
