We’re an inspired bunch at Word HQ. Here, we showcase those items – from snow globes to soap boxes – that helped shape our current edition, the white album. Currently on Word radio waves: Dynooo’s latest LP Vvideo Hair, out on Surf Kill and Californian two-piece Girls’ follow-up effort Father, Son, Holy Ghost out on True Panther. The Whitey Album by Ciccone Youth (1988), The Wall by Pink Floyd (1979) and Goo by Sonic Youth (1990). Arizona Blueberry White Tea, the freshest thing to have hit Brussels streets since Vitaminwater. Brussels’ town hall gets the snowball treatment. Fluocaril toothpaste was a major part of our childhood. Just as much as cod liver oil tablets and an-apple-a-day dressing downs were. Launched earlier this year by Ghinzu frontman John Stargasm and Frederic Nicolay, Volga’s playful take on Russian references and subtle design detail have made it the house draught at some of the city’s choosiest drinking dens. Pictured with its standard bottle is the beer’s nine-pack flat pack, soon to be hitting the shelves of a supermarket near you. Want to know what gets us through deadlines? Oreo cookies and a fresh glass of milk. A vintage soap box found at Les Petits Riens / Spullenhulp The office’s trusted white teapot, bought for a bargain at Brussels’ flea market.
