After months of not posting , I have accumulated information that will provide all of you with clothing of the indie kind. The various shops and websites I have been to have lead me to find new ways of dressing and also new styles that I would not normally go for.

To start things off, the first website I went to was - Urban Outfitters, their range of clothing goes from casual t-shirt and shorts to button up shirt and chinos this look is perfect for anybody who wants a casual look but still likes to look good.

The second shop I found was topman, their stores are all over the world but the do have a site, their clothing is the best range of indie fashion, from amazing button up shirts to classy jeans.

And the third and final store is ASOS their range of clothing is quite interesting and cheap, they have a great range of shirts and shorts.

All in all any of these websites would be good if you were wanting to break into indie fashion

Thanks for reading!

Records , Records and More Records

The humble turntable / phonograph made in 1857 but was corrected by Thomas Edison in 1877, This device is still used in today's society but is not used how it should be. The way the turntable is used today is in clubs wheres the DJ's plays terrible song's on them and then "rip" them the records up to make cool beats but how we should all be using them is playing the classic old rock.

Records can be bought in old shops and there are even places that just sell records, the sound quality that comes out from these record players are amazing and you can even get some LP's that are better than the sound quality you get from MP3's

So guys go check out your local record store and start playing the old rock style, even today some indie bands their music on vinyl so go check them out as well!

Indie Clothing

With the ways of indie music taking a storm into the world of music, their is a whole new style coming into course, and that style can be classified as indie clothing. In todays blog i'll be giving you guys some tips on where to buy "indie" clothing for buyers who want to pay cheap or for buyers who want to spend a little more.

We'll start off with the easiest and cheapest, which is "OP shops". They have really cheap clothes and accessories that have the old fashion look to them, which is what makes it todays fashion or the "New Black"

Secondly has got to be, There range of t-shirts is amazing and there range of indie jackets that are like Angus's from Angus and Julia stones consisted of pages and pages of different types. They also have great accessories for any person.

One of my Favourite stores has got to be "Urban Outfitters," their range in clothing reaches far and wide and there based all over the world. They are cheap and there style can fit anyone who is trying to get a new fashion look or the olden day style that fits in with todays society

For the final shop that i will be talking about is "Topman" though they are on the expensive side of the clothing industry they sell fantastic clothes that range from suits and jackets to funny t-shirts and shorts. There style revolves around its indie audience and in this is a good place to buy if you want to pay a little more than the usual cheap indie clothes.

Great Indie Musicians

From last year there has been and up incoming rise to the music industry, and the leaders of this are the indie musicians/bands. From this we start with the people who led this rise:

Little red; they formed in 2005 and set of with Triple J radio station. one of there hit songs we're coca cola which was their first big hit but was blown away by their song Rock that was realised 2010, wining them 2nd place in triple J's top 100

Hungry Kids of hungary ; their slow rise to fame started in 2007 during that period they played songs that were not known by the public on triple J which got them a tour in 2008.  In 2009 they brought out their hit song let you down which was a big within the indie cohort but was still not recognised by the mainstream audience that controls music in todays society. But in 2010 they brought out their song coming around, which was not only played on Triple J home of indie music of today but was played on all radio stations within the Queensland, Victoria and even NSW cohort.

For the final music band of this post we have spun it from Australian musicians to an American band:
Voxtrot: Though the band is gone now, they created the first era of indie music in Texas, Their hit song was "the start of something" From this it led to their success which led them to tour all over america, and in their last tour they announced that they would be breaking up.

Well thats all for now guys , enjoy the new songs you'll be adding to your ipod and remember come back every day because another post about music will be up!

Indie Music of Today

From the music we listen to today, we realise how TERRIBLE it actually is, from the new R&B singers. But for this terrible act on music there must be a saviour and as we all know that saviour is the Indie Musicians.

Indie Musicians = Independent music, often shortened to indie music or "indie", is a term used to describe independence from major commercial record labels, subsidiaries and an autonomous,

In this they are bringing back the original Music with actual instruments and real singing that isn't auto tuned to the max.

Well thats for now bloggers, Every day this page will be updated with new bands or even topics that go into the cruelty that mainstream musicians bring to the industry.

Peace out
