It’s that time again. Lots of appointments and lots of shows and maybe a few parties.

One party i mos def want to see is DJ Mitsu with the turnaround crew. this will be dope with a capital D.

check the conch post for the jump off.

In the early 90′s i used to ride a fixie around london as a cycle messenger and i had a beat up old track bike that looked like the cheap version to this puppy. i think cycle messengers are responsible for making these bikes the urban choice in cities around the world. might be a while before napier cyclists embrace this aesthetic but i’m feeling it.

thanks to john from Avanti Plus in Hastings for hooking us up.

The Box has arrived, locked and full of fine prints. Next Saturday and Sunday 4 – 5 September we will be hosting the Muka youth print exhibition. It’s an exhibition for only the young ones, strictly no adults.

when i was growing up the fernhill tavern was pretty notorious for the locals punching out anyone who was not a local. the pub is now a backpackers and still full of charm.

Here’s our Maori Language week print.

The National Cafe in Napier is one of those places that has not changed since the day it opened.

New print for today based on my love for a style of music i like to call Aotearoa Roots. We have a bit of a tradition with roots music, from the Herbs, Unity Pacific, Twelve Tribes, Che Fu, Katchafire, FFD, Sal’ Dub, Black Seeds, Kora… the list goes on and on. It’s part of who we are and it’s as strong as ever.

edition of 50 and is going for $80.00. hope to get it up on the webstore sooner rather than later.
