The Weekend Offender 89 T-Shirt References The Classic Scene From The Firm

The classic British hooligan film, The Firm, is now brought back to life courtesy of our friends at Weekend Offender with the 89 t-shirt. Although nowhere near as colourful as Nick Love’s remake from 2009, The Firm from 1989 was one of the very first films to capture the world of the British hooligan throughout the 1980s. Love’s version, which was loosely based around the original, was all about the early 80s, where colourful sportswear & peacocking reached its peak and casual culture was in full swing. Although the authenticity... Read More

Human Traffic was arguably one of the very first cult British films of its time, 21 years later we explore its significance to rave culture & film. There’s only really a handful of films that are on point when it comes to the UK’s rave & club culture.

Human Traffic from 1999 on the other hand focused mainly on... Read More
