Just recently I was sent a link to an old TV interview with Madonna from 1984 where she mentions that she loves the clothes in Worlds End. She also wore a Keith Haring tube skirt from the Witches AW83/84 collection in the video for her first album Borderline. Continue reading
On this episode of Watching the Hawks, Tabetha Wallace sits down with Vivienne Westwood and Joe Corre, who are famous for their punk world exploits in London, to talk about the dangers of fracking and the future of the movement to halt the spread of this dangerous process.
