DRUNKEN CLOWN.

April 8th, 2014

The year is 1997 and everyone had a grunge band. Including us. Including an extremely talented drummer who walked off a heroin cliff, a bass player who would rather have been playing in his “Slayer” metal side project. And a singer who did his best to sound like Eddy Vedder.

#POLO!

March 12th, 2014

STUFF WE SHOULD NEVER HAVE SOLD: SIMON’S 1972 VW CAMPER.

February 3rd, 2014

When Simon came to WWD&S from across the pond this year, he left a big, slow, awesome, baby blue part of himself back in London. He says after putting thousands of miles on it, it was a rusty, broken mess held together with band-aids and bubble gum.
