This last Tuesday it was really great to finally meet again with Mr Holly Johnson to do a new video interview outside Worlds End Shop, the previous of these having been with Mr Adam Ant. As usual the traffic was noisy but Mr Johnson comes through loud & clear.
Due to a broken down bus being right outside the shop I could not shoot from my usual place across the street so we tried to improvise by going round the corner a bit. However this was not ideal, so we moved again & actually used the broken bus to shelter ourselves a bit from the road. A lot better.
Holly knew of the shop when it was called ‘Seditionaries’…….but I’ll let him do the talking.
16 minutes. Let it roll….
Exactly the same print as the long sleeve Squiggle Shirt, just sleeveless in this case; the Squiggle Titty Top is now available in Worlds End Shop…
Modelled by Lelu again, the 100% cotton tops are in two colour ways & both retail at £120.00

The good news that Shaker Aamer was finally to be released after 14 hellish years in Guantanamo Detention Centre came on September 25th this year. We will have to wait a further 30 days from this time for the US Congress to process him, so he is due back on the 24th October (NO LATER).
Is this the end of this heroic man’s problems? Is he to be released on time without any more excuses from the criminals that put him there?….Probably not!.
Already smear campaigns are being ‘released’ about him. ‘He’s a very dangerous man’ apparently, although they cannot, even after 14 years, seem to ever show us any proof of this & instead ask us to believe their words, as our ‘leaders’ are such ‘honest’ & ‘respectable’ people that we should just accept what they say…Right?
Shaker is still being beaten up every day & he has been on another hunger strike since last August.
Will he make it out of that terrible place? The people who put him there would prefer it if he didn’t as his release exposes the crimes they have & are still committing.
Shaker’s lawyer Clive Stafford Smith of the charitable organisation Reprieve & the ‘We Stand with Shaker’ organisation have organised a new campaign that the public can join to show solidarity with Shaker’s situation. It is called ‘Fast for Shaker’ & it asks participants to fast for a period of 24hours sometime between today the 15th October & Shaker’s release, hopefully in 10 days’ time, although if not the campaign will continue.
FREE SHAKER AAMER!!!
Last week I was in Worlds End shop taking some photos when a Japanese couple already dressed in Worlds End from head to toe came in. Coincidentally they had just been on the other side of the river at Westwood Studios & had been lucky enough to meet Vivienne & get her autograph. Continue reading →
