yeah, sorry this isn't about grime, but i really like Kompakt's designs and was wondering if they have any t-shirts or things like that. i'm pretty sure i've seen a record bag somewhere. where would one find these?

Their slipmats are nice - the circle goes around the spindle. Minimal, but effective.

oh wow oh wow oh wow. this is outstanding news and also very very bad because i will soon be very poor. and apparently it's in the bleep.com-style too, no DRM! Ah, life is good. :)

I want those eagles!

Microhouse t-shirts always crack me up - they're always so desperately tasteful, like they're almost embarassed to brand the thing. I've got a Musik Krause one and I was wearing it out, and there's another guy there who I didn't know with a Mille Plateau one on, and we just looked at one another and smiled, like did we wear these things just to impress one another?

er......isnt that like, any band/music t shirt?

they are the most pointless garments ever, their only raison d'eter is to scream "this is what i like and this is who i am"

at least if theyre tasteful then theres an element of design interest. frinstance, perlon artwork is awesome, and the t shirt is wicked design as well, as well as being in my favourite colours. now if it only had been designed for short fat people like me, rather than impossibly lanky skinny germans, i ight be able to wear it........

those perlon t-shirts are lushy.

No, cos those tend to say SIMPLE PLAN in big letters across the front and are therefore pretty unambiguous. The microhouse ones use 12 point type and thin little lines...

It amuses me cos it's an example of the increasing subtlety of consumer culture - signifiers interpretable only by smaller and smaller groups of people.
