That's great. Can I buy a pair please?
I'll send you the email of the guy who made them.
I'm sub-letting it from Jay-Z.
they're kind of sweet in a too twee for me way.
Like some nasty Chelsea boots for kicking the shit from people.
Will they do?
I know for a fact your first name is Francis.
In time for their swing back into fashion
Now there's a duet that needs to happen.
i think so
and they are like £35
i owe you a t shirt though, i still have to get those printed up
can i get a pair?
I'll email you the email to hit up :D
you must be the biggest ego in all of DiS history your name is all over everything you do!
You know that's only my name in the same way that Paul Artrocker and Sean In Sound and Paul Truck and Christopher Upset and Tom Tigertrap etc are their real names, right?
Jimi of the famous Bedfordshire Theexploders, John.
it just makes me giggle every time I see ya around cos its like a little brand or something and makes ya look like captain internet ego 2000 and nine
Well I hope you do the same @ SeanDiS and all the others I mentioned then :(
he owns one of the bigest music sites in europe for indie stuff.
I'm not even sayin its massivly bad it just makes me giggle a bit the way you use ya name. It's a bit like you've got massive ideas but I've not seen much happen apart from alof of weblinks with your name on. Tis fair enough and good luck to ya.
Keyboard Choir, Friends Of The Bride, Napoleon IIIrd and Pagan Wanderer Lu have all had some degree of success, and that's not to forget the numerous albums/compilations that have been put out on Brainlove. There's also the tours, and the clubnights...AND THE SHOES!
I don't mean to have a go
I like what he's doing it just makes me cringe at the same time.
its makes me want to give him a massive hug for trying so hard all the damn time.
its admirable but hes a bit of an embarasing geek with it thats all I'm sayin.
god bless him!
you're not exactly shy with the old self-promotion yourself though are you? i've seen you jag your dubstep mixes all over the place here.
I write a blog too
It's not the bestist though.
All my mixes are in there too along with loads of peoples that are far far better than mine.
I aint sayin its bad to promot his stuff, fair play for that he is doin his thing. It's all just done in a really ironic knowing manner like *ahem* trainers!
Sorry i only deal in sincerity.
he's a bit like a lolcat
a bit adorable a bit special a bit knowing a bit fun a bit annoying.
you sound like a right dick in this thread.
yeah I do a little bit ahh well
I still find it quite funny though
you should see my new range of merch. At least Mr Rogers puts on gigs and has a lot of bands on his label and stuff. i do sod all.
That's not very nice.
BRNLV is a record company with records in shops nationally, videos on MTV and songs on Radio 1, so I don't think we do too badly.
you do have that
but it just doesnt come across on here at all and thats pretty much the only place I've seen ya.
Tis good what ya doin though and good luck with it and all that.
And thanks for turning the thread into a yet another DiS referendum on my personality :-S
your probibly use to them
its not your personality though dont be drama queen its just your posts I'm sure we would get on like a house on fire in person.
dubstep dubstep dubstep dubstep dubstep dubstep dubstep dubstep dubstep.
I got your parcel today steve
I texted lucy about lunch, I have a new phone see with no numners in it, I think I missed it because of swimming :(
even lucy missed lunch because she had to be somewhere in essex. we went to the science museum in the morning and it was rubbish. you didn't miss much!
i love the idea of some guy in a cardigan angrily mashing his keyboard AGHHHHHH HE MADE ANOTHER POST ABOUT DUBSTEP I HATE DUBSTEP AHGHGHGHGH THIS IS AN INDIE FORUM.. NOT SOME KIND OF PLACE.. WHERE LIKE.. PEOPLE DON'T PLAY GUITARS AGHGHGHHGHG
*continues to listen to music collection almost entirely comprised of overly earnest white middle class guitar bands*
*has 10000000 posts on drowned in sound*
*does 180 on taste when zomby plays atp*
you're really bitter and unpleasant and kinda clueless, huh.
swings and roundabouts dude
Your amateur psychoanalysis is an epic fail.
Stick to being rude to people for no reason, huh?
have fun with your john brainlove trainers hopefully somebody will talk about them on the john brainlove forum or is there going to be john brainlove video on john brainlove tv for all of us john brainlove fans? i'd love to see john brainlove in the john brainlove trainers! in fact an embedded video from john brainlove tv on the john brainlove forum of john brainlove in the john brainlove trainers whilst holding a john brainlove compilation featuring a track by john brainlove would be.. HELL.. the john brainloviest thing I've ever seen!
about bands that are on brainlove records. CRAZY TIMES!
and the site imploded
This is rubbish. You carry on being snide, I'll carry on trying to do a good job with my record label and associated gigs and projects, and everyone's happy.
Except you I guess. You don't seem very happy. SADFACE
i don't think i'd change anything in my life! to be fair, you've put on some good bands/out some good records, but its pretty dishonest to say "brainlove" isn't your identity. none of the guys up there you listed actually refer to themselves anywhere as Sean In Sound or whatever.
YOU GONE DUN A MASSIVE RONG 'GAIN
but if you can find anywhere near as many instances of sean in sound put in the place of sean adams as there are of john brainlove put in the place of john [your real name] i'll give you the point
That is not something that I am going to go and do.
But go read an issue of Artrocker (god help you) or... just pull your head out of your ass in general, and you'll see that replacing your surname with that of whatever band / label / site you're working on is pretty standard stuff.
THEY LOOK AWESOME
but instead I'm now envisioning all the customized sneakers I'd like to have. So wrong?
I liked Space Ace. I think I'd want The Cat on a pair of shoes though.
Though you should actually know me well enough to know that. Tear.
You should try six months on the chain gang pal.
YOUR DREAM FULFILLED
POST IN THE RIGHT TIME NOW WEBSTY
someone I know works at a company that makes these and said he'd like to do some for us, so I obvs said yes please because who wouldn't...
It's not like I sat up nights considering how I could expand the DIY BRNLV micro-label into the footwear industry.
Which ones have you heard?
that's better than the Beatles or something
It's pretty fucking brilliant, and no mistake.
i had to buy a second copy off his website because it was so good
True, that is a thing.
You know it would probably cost less to do it with felt tips
And instead of the shoes, you can just go around writing your name on peoples bare feet.
Profit margins my friend
Cause if so, you have to grow a mullet.
Brainlove/Traynor: the collaboration no one saw coming.
but no answers are forthcoming.
Luke from LR Rockets. He's working for a company called Looks Can Kill and was emailling loads of bands and labels etc about customised shoes back in October. Try here: http://www.lebombart.co.uk/
in many ways
Brillo! Not least for the reaction they've provoked, you great big corporate bastard.
Whatever someone else offers to make on their big new machine.
They shouldn't, but they do
I kinda thought they might come out disgusting, but I wanted them to be colourful and in the 'house style' of the label, and I'd totally wear 'em, so I think it's a win.
I might pick up a pair when the buy link comes out, shoes are fast becoming a new weakness of mine.
i'll have a pair please john, size 5 (not really, i have no money but if you give me them it'll be like free advertising yeah? :D:D:D)
You can be in charge of arguing with people on this thread? I have to go to the bank and someone's gotta do it.
"I'M A POWERFUL BUT DIMINUTIVE YOUNG WOMAN"
O no I'm telling you what to say.
Accidental oppression fail.
but I don't like these plimsole-y type shoes. Neat marketing - all the kids will be into it
No offence JBL, but it's only a pair of trainers.
A half YELLOW pair at that.
Please kill it dead now, thanks.
I will single handedly make everyone on DiS desist from posting in this thread for you.
as bad as they are, they cant be worse than the applicants.
haha, i jest. nice shoes.
You used to be such a nice boy.
just a thought
apparently it ony says Brandad on one side
