Super 8 stills of Radio Caroline


When I was a boy I used to listen to the radio Late into the night with the volume down and the lights down low. Tune it in to the 999, they used to call her Caroline. Every Sunday night I listened in midnight to two And no one [else] had to know that we’re all alone, just me and you. Who gives a damn about the BBC? Out in the channel everyone was free. Listening to the radio, pirate radio. Tune it in to the 999, they used to call her Caroline. Listening to the radio, pirate radio. Now those days are gone, there’s no more ship, and no more show, But I still hear those tunes like the young boy I was long ago. Close my eyes and I drift away, I hear those songs just like yesterday. Listening to the radio, pirate radio. When I was a boy I used to listen to the radio Late into the night with the volume up and the lights down low. Tune it in to the 999, we used to call her Caroline. Listening to the radio, pirate radio. Who gives a damn about the BBC? Out in the channel everyone was free. Listening to the radio, pirate radio. Listening to the radio, pirate radio. Listening to the radio, pirate radio. The Toasters – Pirate Radio

The cinematographic quality of super 8 film and early colour photography have a beautiful saturation and almost sepia quality to them- like looking through John Lennon’s glasses into a grey world and seeing it with rose-tinted optimism.

emulate these textures on both woven and non woven fabrics. The use of technological

plastics fabrics is also fundamental to my

collection . i plan on using up to date fabrics . This has been inspired by 60s designers like

COurrèges and contemporary brands such as burb-

tailoring i have decided to not use tailored jackets as i feel for such a small collection it does not fit into the feel of what i am trying to create as a functional but elegant collection even with the addition of hardwear. i feel these are details that would be stronger on fully functional outerwear garments such as parkers and raincoats.
