AnyForty Seven Launch Party at Whosit & Whatsit, Newcastle

11th March 2015 | Tags: , , , ,

Yes folks! It’s been a long time since we broke out the auld blog, for those of you who don’t know, we left London back in August last year, relocated back to the motherland, Newcastle Upon-Tyne and have spent the last few months busting our ball sacks on the graft tip.

Since the flip of the new year, we’ve been hard at work getting a incredible range of designs together to celebrate our Seventh Birthday, seven years?! Damn, where has the time gone eh.

It’s quite an achievement for a small independent UK brand to hit the seven year mark so we thought it was something to make a metric-fuck-tonne of noise about, so we’ve created a new range called, you guess it… Seven!

Seven artists from around the world tackling seven deadly sins. It’s an epic collection of wearable art and we can’t wait for you to see it, we’re so proud of it we’d like to invite you to a massive party we’re gonna throw with our friends at Whosit & Whatsit, down on Newcastle’s Quayside.

We’re taking over the whole of their new first floor event space, and we’ve an evening of free musical entertainment on the cards – we’re bringing up our good bredrins from London, bearded musical maestro The Last Skeptik fresh off the success of his latest EP “I Don’t Even Like you” to get your heads bopping, the globe trotting, magical mouth making music machine Hobbit to get your jaws dropping and the ridiculous Rewd Adams who’s going to be performing tracks of his brand new “Hunger Pains 2″ album to get you lively! So excited by the fact we are getting these guys all up from London to perform for a new North East audience, and any AnyForty family who’ve made it to any of our events in London since 2011 will know how ridiculous these guys are. Rounding up our musical entertainment we’ve our good pal, and local DJ royalty Flint & Steel opening up and closing the nights festivities on the wheels of steel. We’ve also got our mates back from our South West days, the delicious boozy Brothers Cider to hook you guys up with a load of different flavoured ciders to set the night off on a merry tip!

It’s going to be a incredible event, the team at Whosit & Whatsit are working on a really exciting visual event space environment, something silly nice to do with the Seven theme, you’ll have to wait till the night to find out more though! Due to venue size, we’ve got to limit this to strictly no more than 60 people in at any one time, so it’s going to be first come first served on the guest list tip, if you’re not on the list, you can’t come in. So please, if you’re not local and are traveling up for this, make sure you put your name and email on the guest list here otherwise you’re just gonna hear the goodness from outside. Don’t worry, we won’t spam you or sell your email address to any Nigerian princes.

So yeah, check out the flyer below, sign up to the guest list and we shall see you on the night for all the above and much, much more!!

Additional note: We’re also extremely proud to announce our friends from Brewdog are going to be running a pop-up bar in the event space, which will be selling cans of there beautiful ale’s, Punk IPA and Dead Pony Pale Ale from 7pm until 11pm. This event is gonna be the one. You do not want to sleep on it!

You guys got Spotify?! Course you have! So check out a sick new idea that our latest stockists Verb Syndicate in Australia have come up with, they invite someone connected to the store, be it staffers, customers, or brands that are stocked with them to compile a playlist that they can play in-store, customers can bump at home or work, and a way of introducing people to new music they might not of heard before.

We’re super honoured to be the first  asked to kick off the series, our main man Al being an obsessed hip hop head since 88, he’s cooked up a modern day head nod selection featuring some of his favourite independent US/UK and Australian hip hop.

Click the above image to go and listen to it and crank that volume up, perfect friday afternoon riddims! Big ups to Simon at Verb Syndicate for the invite, tis a great idea, and big up to Doon below repping one of our new athletic grey Hydro script crews outside the store, already loving AnyForty! Australia, we got some stuff in the pipeline exclusively for you, stay tuned for more info soon…

AnyForty store visits: Disturbed Clothing, Camden, London

5th December 2012 | Tags: , , , ,

So today, we made our second store visit in 2 weeks, after last weeks visit to Urban Industry, we took the short trip across London and visited new stockist Disturbed Clothing, in Camden!

Jumping on the 243 bus from Upper Clapton across to the world famous Camden High Street with the puppy and our man Hobbit we headed over to see how the brand is doing in store and have a catch up with the main man Amer.

We’re stoked to finally have our first London retail account under our belt and we’re keen for the brand to do well in there.

If your a London head, or coming down to London to visit, we highly recommend you pop along and check out Disturbed, it’s like the Aladdin’s cave of Streetwear stores, you walk in through one store, then head downstairs into Disturbed and you’re hit with walls absolutely covered in the sickest product, windbreakers, crewnecks, tees, sneakers, snapbacks, like a kid in a candy shop, trust me, I struggled to walk out of there without spending any money.

We’re proud to share the shop floor with the likes of Nike, Adidas, Carhartt, King, New Era and many more. Big up’s guys for being our first London account, watch this space for a few more next year.

Check out the pics below and next time your around pop in and see the guys!
