Style spotters: Manu
For the fourth and last in our series of visual chapters on individualism and style, we hand the camera over to Manu from Mapp Store – one of those people who always has something good to say. He might have just given a new album a listen, and thinks you should too (we recently discovered Holidays […]

Fresh from a showcase of his new outfit The […]

The (bloody) backstage at Lokerse Feesten
Photography Ulrike Biets Here’s some of the material we were able to get despite our limited access. It would be a shame not to share something that (questionably) deserved shedding blood for.

Backstage at Dour festival
The disarming femme enfant Uffie admitted to us she enjoys pretending to not understand a word of French, that way she can secretly eavesdrop all ongoing conversations in the press area.

Here’s our man capturing the audience as he steps onstage. Fast forward to 1.00 for a load of the action.
Backstage at Les Ardentes
Pictures by Ulrike Biets The one and only Pharrell, listening to his iPod as he exits his ride to get into the dressing rooms.

Pete Doherty posing minutes before Babyshambles‘ concert. We […]
