Good Grief! Vans x Peanuts Has Just Dropped


Teaming up with icons of illustration is nothing new for Vans and I’m really excited about their latest collaboration. On this turn, they fly the kite for everyone’s favourite underdog squad, allowing them a whole new time to shine.

ICYMI (how??), here’s a little scoop on Snoopy…

Peanuts started life as a comic strip launched in October 2nd 1950, and ran to February 13th 2000 written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz. The friends stole the hearts of millions worldwide running in over 2,600 newspapers reaching an impressive readership of 355 million, and being animated into Emmy award winning TV specials. The format Schultz paved the way for the four-panel comic strip still used now in publications worldwide.

Not bad for a bunch of kids lead by a meek and mild protagonist who couldn’t fly a kite, kick a football or win a baseball game.

The Vans x Peanuts collection features Old Skool Classics, High Tops and Slip Ons complete with Snoopy, Woodstock and the gang referencing a variety of their sweet and iconic situations created by Schultz. Renowned for the themes and social commentary running through all their episodes, it seems like ideal timing for this collection to drop.

What do we want…

Might As Well Records Release Mizaru Kikazaru Iwazaru Compilation


Slightly askew to our normal topic of choice but give a shit. Might As Well have pulled together one hell of a charity compilation collective.

Might As Well was set up in London to put on charity all dayers. With two under their belt already, rumour has it they are currently lining up Might As Well Fest 3 for Spring 2017.

Mizaru Kikazaru Iwazaru are the embodiment of see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil so quite fitting for these three compilations and if you ask me, the artwork lends itself rather perfectly to a t-shirt. Just saying.

The compilations were conceived and created to raise money for Stop Hate UK with a little help from Holy Roar, Xtra Mile, Alcopop and Speaking Tongues. The compilations feature wicked artists like Ducking Punches, The Gospel Youth, Drones, Giants, Johnny Foreigner, Rob Lynch, The Capital…the list goes on.

Head to the Might As Well Bandcamp to purchase all three!
