Is this where we post WAYWT photos in band / label tee shirts? I think the only ones I own at this point are from Gomez…

I know it's a long-shot, but was anyone here on Oink or What? As far as I'm concerned, that was peak internet; it's all been downhill since 2016

hello all

I know there is a music thread deep in the superfuture sub-structure, but as most superdenim users seem to remain within the superdenim frame of reference wondering about this as a thread to post what you are listening to, what sounds you are avoiding, with or without reference to what you are wearing or other posting on the thread... [I know there is a lot of musicality sitting around on the forum...]

for my post today: always a sucker for concept albums, this one by czarface; released as vinyl album with comic book to read whilst listening... alternate history wrestling meets cosmic travel... a conflictual tale via quasi-easy listening...

'first weapon drawn', posted on youtube by none other than sun tzu...

^Bartles, do you like MF DOOM in general. My favorite release made by him is probably the "Sadevillain" EP, got it as a bootleg in Kopenhagen few years ago, came on translucent pink vinyl, big ting!

Guy got many concept albums, storyline-wise. L'Orange also puts out great concept albums along with other artists, also classics would be Deltron 3030

^ I have always been a fan of the underrated "Born Like This" by DOOM. Also, what did you think of the new Blu & Exile. Still haven't listened.

To contribute, I have been knee deep in Flipper's Guitar. I'm a huge Beach Boys fan, and their sample of God Only Knows is beautiful in the song below:

@Thanks_M8, @Suitedupmon - thanks for the MF Doom references will check up: never listened to much apart from his album with czarface and his 'special herbs vol 1+2' (despite the amount of ink spilt on him in the wire...) - I tend to listen to same albums on loop for months... right now, in terms of hip hop post wu-tang goodness, 'first weapon drawn' & 'every hero needs a villain', last year more kendrick lamar and (despite myself) drake's 'nothing was the same' - mostly because of this review by the most missed mark fisher... (otherwise am introducing little ones to delights of black sabbath war pigs & bowie via berlin trilogy... then on to krautrock goodness of neu! 2) ...

 

interested to hear other sufu-indigo-lovers listening links...

This has prompted me to dig out one of my favourite 12 inches. 
 

Its from the now defunct Money Studies - the in-house label from Turntable Lab in NY. 
 

My favourite Doom project would probably be the Madvillain LP produced by Madlib on Stones Throw.

Funny Doom should come up—I’m the same, these days, listening to a few albums on repeat for months at a time, and his Adult Swim-theme bit with Danger Mouse has been on the rotation pretty heavily recently

Top notch, through and through

Small world! Another big doom fan here. I always dug that dangermouse album and his mm..food Album. (I mean, an anagram of your stage name for album title?!, it’s also a concept album so 2 for 1?)

To make a straight-ish line style vice to another good concept album I’m throwing the band Why? onto the pile. Indie rock with kinda spoken word singing. The early albums (why is always the early stuff?!) are great!

Which leads to Cursives concept album the ugly organ. Post hardcore maybe? Achingly beautiful at times and really sludgy and ugly at times.

Love Doom. Favourite album is Operation: Doomsday! by a mile. But I love most of his stuff and have been a fan since the KMD days. Met him very briefly in Shoreditch House once at a Ghostface show!

Great track. I used to have the Dead Bent 12" on Fondle Em which kind of sounds like a demo version.

So happy a thread like this exists now! Outside of denim my biggest passion in life is music. This year, I finally completed my vinyl setup and began collecting non-stop. I am a music student so I am on the search for as many guitar-based jazz albums as I can get. Here's a peak of some favourites. I have yet to acquire a hip-hop album but at the top of my list for that would have to be Hieroglyphics "3rd Eye Vision". It is one of those albums where there isn't a bad song (like MM...FOOD, IMO.)

It seems MF Doom and denim go together. Another fan here- madvillain has been on heavy rotation on my turntable since it was released. I was an avid stonesthrow collector through the 2000s, along with other rap, funk, soul and reggae. 
Lately I have been listening a lot to Townes van zandt, Witch and assorted soul like syl Johnson

I’m with you here - Was into 2000’s Stones Throw as well. Feel like it took a hit when Egon left to set up Now Again -and Madlibs departure and founding of Rappcats, both labels I follow. 
 

Those, along with Warp and Sub Pop have my attention regularly.

Enjoying this thread

Though not been through all new-to-me suggestions... First weapon drawn, Sadevillain, Witch have all gone down well... and Lamb of God at least made my boy sit up straight when it kicked in :)

The Nightmares on Wax back catalogue on Warp is all great - seen them live a handful of times and always good value

Sadly can’t contribute to the rap or electronic chit chat. But a quick peek at recent Spotify tells me I’ve been listening to:

Brocas Helm - Defender of the Crown 

Enslaved - Eld

Revered Bizarre - II Crush the Insects 

Guy Clark - Old No1/Texas Cooking

      For this first round of supertalk denim articles, we've consulted our denim expert friends at Heddels. We're re-publishing some definitive editorials - originally posted a few years back - that help enlighten us to the various mysteries and intricacies of the denim universe. Many topics have been covered in extensive detail on numerous supertalk threads going back to 2003, but these essential Heddels articles summarize things perfectly.
      //
      The first thing many people say at the mention of raw denim is, “Those are the jeans you’re not supposed to wash, right?” How you launder them has become inextricably tied to the notion of raw denim jeans and a whole host of myths, tricks, and hearsay that have garbled up the discussion of something that is actually quite straightforward.
      We’re here to give you the definitive guide of when, how, and why you should wash your raw denim jeans.
      When Should You Wash Your Jeans
      This is probably the biggest sticking point amongst raw denim fans, many of which will tell you with certainty that washing any sooner than 6 months after you first bought your jeans is a mortal sin and you will absolutely ruin the denim.
      The truth is, your raw denim is a well-made, sturdy, piece of workwear and can take as many washes as you decide to throw at it and keep on humming. The caveat here is that the indigo they are dyed in may not.
      One of the biggest appeals of raw denim is that it will conform and fade to your body the longer you wear it. The reason your jeans fade along with what you do in them is because they are losing indigo in the places they naturally abrade:  where they fold behind your knees, when you scrape them on the concrete, against your wallet in your back pocket. The more indigo you have to lose, the greater the eye-popping contrast between those natural stress points and the rest of the jean will be.
      A pair of well faded jeans.
      When you wash your jeans, however, you lose indigo throughout the entirety of the jean, so the resulting fade will have less contrast. The flipside here is that the longer you wait to wash your jeans, the more that dirt and grime will build up within the fabric and the more brittle and stretched out the cotton fibers will be and the more likely your jeans will start to blow out and rip apart.
      If it’s just a small stain, you might be able to get away with spot cleaning. Ultimately though, if you’re ever in doubt, you should probably wash your jeans. For me, that’s about every 3-4 months of moderate wear. Some people who only wear their jeans on the weekends can go for years, while people who are very active and wear their jeans everyday can barely wait a month. If you’re still unsure, have a look at our guide to 6 Signs You Should Probably Wash Your Jeans.
      Once you’re ready to say it’s time for a wash though, read on for how to do it right.
      Things to Note Before You Wash
      Unsanforized shrink to fit denim before a wash (left) and after (right).
      Now there are a few things you might want to take into account if this is the first time you are washing your jeans.
      Shrinkage – All jeans shrink when they are first exposed to water. Unsanforized (“Shrink-to-Fit”) jeans will reduce in size roughly 5-10% throughout the jean after the first wash and dry, but even pre-shrunk Sanforized jeans will still shrink about 3-5% on first wash. The waist on sanforized jeans will eventually stretch back out, but what you lose in inseam length will not. If you hem your jeans before the first wash, please keep this in mind or you might have the snazziest pair of denim flood pants around. Temperature – The warmer the water, the more indigo you will lose and the more the denim will shrink. This is true for any sort of wash. Indigo Transfer – Don’t wash your jeans with anything that you don’t intend to dye blue! Raw denim naturally bleeds indigo–it’s how you get your fades–but it hemorrhages when it’s wet. If you’re washing your jeans in the tub, be ready for a little blue porcelain. Clean your Washing Area – Make sure your tub is clean and free of chemicals or your washing machine has nothing but the detergent you are using to wash your jeans loaded up. More than a few pairs of jeans have bleached, stained, and everything in between from gunk hanging around. How to Wash Your Raw Denim

      Everyone has their own method of washing their jeans that they get just right. Below is our straightforward way that’s easy to use and will give you fresh jeans with minimal indigo loss in under 10 steps:
      Run a cool-lukewarm bath and add your soap. I recommend Woolite Dark or Dr. Bronner’s but have used shampoo in a pinch before as well. Wait for the soap to be completely dissolved in the water and place your jeans in the tub. Turn off the water when there’s enough for the jeans to be completely submerged (around 3-4 inches). Agitate the jeans under the water for a few minutes then place them so that all parts of the jean are under water. You may have to use shampoo bottles to hold it down if your jeans are especially buoyant. Leave your jeans in the tub for 30-45 minutes (or just watch our Ueno shop tour video five times). Agitate your jeans one more time and then drain the tub. Once the tub is completely empty, refill it with again with cold water and leave the jeans in it for another 5-10 minutes. This will rinse out any remaining soap. Drain the tub and hang your jeans to dry over the drain or outside–they will drip indigo water for a while. Let them dry overnight and voila–clean jeans! Alternate Methods

      We personally go for the tub wash, but not everyone shares that sentiment nor even owns a tub. Here are a couple other methods you might have heard about and why we think the tub soak is the best method out there.
      Washing Machine – Quite a few people simply toss their jeans in the washing machine, which is a perfectly valid and probably more sanitary way to wash your pants. The caveat here is that the way you earn your fades in your raw denim is through the creases that set into the denim. Washing machines tumble, spin, and agitate, which could not only remove those creases but also add a few of their own. If you do choose to wash with a machine though, DO NOT PUT THEM IN THE DRYER. The dryer will shrivel your jeans into a raw denim raisin with a host of weird new creases.
      Dry Cleaning – Some people swear by taking their jeans to the cleaners, after all, how can your jeans shrink if they never even touch water? That may be well and good, but the dry cleaner will be more expensive than anything at home, you won’t know what chemicals they’re using on your jeans, and you have to really trust them as some cleaners might just toss them in their industrial washer and dryer instead.
      Ocean Washing – The ocean wash trend used to be much more popular, but it’s still not uncommon to see someone taking their jeans for a day at the beach. Rubbing sand and seawater on your pants may increase the fades, but it is not an acceptable or hygienic way to wash them. If you choose to do an ocean wash, you’ll need to wash again in freshwater or risk smelling like low tide.

    • By superfuture
      01 | superfuture started in 1999. how old were you then?

      I was 15 back then.

      02 |  how did you first discover sufu? 
      In 2007 or 2008 I first read about Nudie Jeans and it was the gateway drug into raw denim. In 2009 I joined the mynudies forum but learned very quick that there's better denim out there as well as a better forum where it is discussed. I was lurking a few months before joining as I was a bit intimidated by the experienced users there. superfuture and mynudies user Beautiful_freak was a great promoter of SuFu, so I decided to join in October 2010 by sharing some of my faded jeans and pictures of Levi Strauss' birthplace.

      03 |  there are plenty of shopping experts on supertalk. what's your specialty? are you a pro?
      I am by no means an expert, but know a thing or two about denim (especially Samurai and Iron Heart) and shoes/boots.
      I know a lot about fading jeans however, it's what got me hooked back then and still is most entertaining, to see how a fabric evolves over time and share it with fellow people. I can also give sizing and washing advice and know some cuts, so I always like to give advice to new members. My other interests are records, whisky and tattoos. I think I would rather think of me as an expert in these subjects, but besides the tattoos thread in superculture I don't share them here.



      04 |  reputation is everything in an online community. how's yours going? do you ever get neg repped?
      I can't complain, there's some very friendly users that give positive reputation, mainly for my faded jeans. I am not a very stylish person so most rep comes for fades or WAYJDT (What are your jeans doing today)-posts. And I got a few points through the old rep system.
      05 |  online forums are all about the members, threads and posts. who and what keeps you addicted?
      There's always a period when my interests shift towards my other interests, but the community always keeps me coming back. There's a core of enthusiasts that are passionate about their gear which makes it fun to come back every now and then to keep in touch. Also there are many great contests and world tours happening, I also like to read older threads with this content. The OOE Yofukuten world tour being the finest so far, in my opinion. Besides that, I think that the denim blunders thread is often very entertaining, reaching political dimensions sometimes just to come back to very profane matters.
      06 |  supertalkers are based all over the planet. have you met any IRL?  
      I have met a few indeed, and all were great guys. Beautiful_freak, Volvo240thebest, Atzec, Almostnice, Kayodic and Blue Nemo come to my mind immediately, but I think there were more (also from other forums). It was always a good time and a good opportunity to be nerdy.
      07 |  are you fast and furious / slow chilled and controlled / or bitter and twisted? 
      Sometimes bitter, but I think online I'm pretty chilled.
      08 |  the internet is full of crap. with over 3.2 million posts since 2003 has supertalk been a credible contributor or a major culprit? 
      Most of it is super useful information and there are very well informed regulars here.

      09 |  if supertalk got accidentally deleted would you be devastated or relieved?    You often need to lose something to fully understand its value... so I'm certain I would be devastated a while as this place has played a part in my life for almost 7 years now.   10 |  if you could nominate another superstar who would it be?
      It has to be Maynard Friedman, we need to know more about this guy. Beautiful_Freak is a close second as he's a super active user for many years.

      Back then I was 19.
      02 |  how did you first discover sufu? 
      I think I'd discovered sufu around 2010. I started to wear raw denim in 2009, and I think I found sufu because of some internet searches related on "how often should I wash my jeans". I'd been a lurker for a couple years at least and I've been an active member since 2012 I think. I only hang around the superdenim sub forum.
      03 |  there are plenty of shopping experts on supertalk. what's your specialty? are you a pro?
      I am not a pro! Just an average guy who likes to wear his denim. I am a musician and I work as well in music management. I play traditional and early music on wooden flutes and I work as director of a chamber music festival in Italy. My specialty would probably be everything involved with Japanese brand TCB. TCB is a small factory brand from Kurashiki in Okayama prefecture of Japan. They're specialized on reproduction of workwear from the 1920's to the 1960's. I bought my first pair of TCB jeans in 2012, just a couple of months after the brand was created. I believe I've been one of their first overseas customers. Since then I've become quite a fan of the brand and also a friend of the founder of TCB Hajime Inoue. Through my enthusiasm and sharing evolution pics of all my TCB jeans and jackets I think I've helped the brand to spread a bit outside of Japan.

      04 |  reputation is everything in an online community. how's yours going? do you ever get neg repped?
      I don't care much about reputation. I do care about good manners and I see the rep system as a tool to keep the people well behaved on forums. 
      05 |  online forums are all about the members, threads and posts. who and what keeps you addicted?
      Raw denim, vintage style inspired by 1920's to 1960's, Japanese vintage inspired brands, leathercraft, fine boots. I like to see how clothes are worn, and I appreciate people who put together a well thought outfit, not necessarily composed by a bunch of expensive and exclusive clothes only. I also love vintage cars, especially Volvos (hence my nickname), photography, tattoos, and music of course, though the music I listen to won't appeal to the 95% of the sufu crowd, being mostly hardcore, pure drop traditional music, early music and classical music.
      06 |  supertalkers are based all over the planet. have you met any IRL? 
      I come from Italy, where the raw denim community is really small. Only a couple of my real life friends know and wear selvedge jeans, and none of them live in my area. There are only a few Italian regular posters on sufu, but I've never met any of them. I did meet a couple posters outside of my country on various tours. One of them has become a good friend IRL as well.

      07 |  are you fast and furious / slow chilled and controlled / or bitter and twisted?
      Definitely slow, chilled and controlled.
      08 |  the internet is full of crap. with over 3.2 million posts since 2003 has supertalk been a credible contributor or a major culprit? 
      The supertalk community is big, there are some knowledgeable people and some wankers as well hanging around here. 50/50? 60/40?!?

      09 |  if supertalk got accidentally deleted would you be devastated or relieved? 
      Neither probably. Let's say I would be devastated and my bank account would be relieved!
      10 |  if you could nominate another superstar who would it be?
      Another simple guy who likes to wear his denim well and hard, Max Power.
