MRLA – Cry Baby / Generic Surplus / Blouse

I just bought the Cry Baby soundtrack for the third time since the movie came out in 1990. The first time was on cassette tape and the second one on a cd that I lost. It is one of my all time favorites. A cult movie that will live on forever. The soundtrack includes classic rock & roll, soul and bebop as well as orginal songs created for the film.  The songs are not actually performed by protagonists Johnny Depp and Amy Locane, but by rockabilly legend James Intveld and Rachel Sweet. A must have!
Generic Surplus is a Los Angeles based brand offering timeless silhouettes, clean and refined lines. Their designs incorporate elements of street wear while keeping a classic style. Here are my favourites.

Last weekend I finally got to see Blouse perform. I wrote a little about them a few months back and I’ve been curious to see them live since. As I expected,  they were as lovely as their music. Afterwards, the dance party continued with my fellow dj friend Michael Stock opening the floor with the usual post-punk, minimal and dark synth wave Part Time Punks is best known for.
Tuesday night, Generic Surplus and Steven Harrington threw the Sun Dunes party for the release of the new Harrington desert boot and new fanzine Generic Manifesto at El Chavo Restaurant in Silverlake where I ran into a few familiar faces. Here are some highlights.
