I’ve never blogged about these guys, so consider this what would have been a normal post, only there’s a surprise at the end! End Of Fashion are some rockers of the typical swank residing in good ol’ Australia. You may have caught them at SXSW 2004 (or maybe not, pick your poison). Their self titled debut was released in 2005 but will see release in the states in the coming weeks. If you’re a fan of The Pixies, then I’m sure you’ll either love the band for completely ripping off “Where Is My Mind?” or you’ll hate them for the same reason. Regardless, it seems, the band doesn’t care. They’re sole interest, according to lead singer, is “[to] want to break down the walls – within that context, that image, we can do anything we want no matter whether it’s super cheesy or punk, I want to kill fashion, see the end of it.” Not exactly the noblest of causes, but who am I to judge?
Up for grabs in this contest is a copy of their debut album. In the spirit of the band’s name and mission, if you want to enter, link [in the comments] to a picture of a person in attire that would suggest him/her to also be supporting the same “End Of Fashion” cause…i.e., a picture of someone with the most dreadfully hilarious fashion sense. The worst/funniest picture wins. Again, just link to the photo, and remember to leave your email address with your entry!
Now what about those other contests? I’m happy to report the winners of both the Submarines and La Rocca contests as follows:
For an advanced copy of The Submarines‘ album Declare A New State!, we actually had two winners:
For his deliciously hilarious and pertinent word “phoner,” described as “an auditory boner,” Ian has won the signed copy of La Rocca‘s Sing Song Sung EP.
Thanks for playing everyone! If you didn’t win, don’t pass up the chance to win this one or future contests…we’ll have plenty over the summer, that’s a guarantee!
