Boys Own X Firmament Collection
Formed in the summer of 1986 by DJs Terry Farley, Andy Weatherall, Steve Mayes and Cymon Eckles, Boys Own started life as a fanzine which celebrated their joint loves of football, fashion, narcotics and, of course, music. It launched at the same time as acid house’s growing popularity and Boy’s Own quickly became an integral part of the scene, eventually launching a record label and lifestyle all of its own, and will still have men of certain age getting all misty eyed when they reminisce about it now. Berlin’s Firmament have collaborated with Boy’s Own and their in-house artist Dave Little, who took the illustration style of traditional English kid’s stories and mixed it with popular culture to create an subversive and iconic look, creating a collection of prints and t-shirts of the label’s original artwork.
Available now from the Glade.
