Known for her iconic eye make-up, “skunk� hairdo and anarchist attitude, it’s insanely easy to see why “Third-Degree Burns� is the poster girl for the proto-punk era.With a closet that seems to consist solely of a few skimpy, sheer blouses and dark underwear – which Burns modestly wears with some tights and high-heeled booties, she embodies all that is a true ‘80s punk rock chick.

Mixing her non-conformist attitude with riot grrrl-esque plaid skirts, vintage tees, bold glasses and of course – acid-green hair, Enid’s got it all. From creepers to biker jackets with some cutesy vintage collared shirts thrown in for good measure, she totally nails her “obvious, 1977 original punk rock lookâ€?. And don’t forget that iconic batgirl mask (she was probably single-handedly responsible for the increase in sales of fetish-y superhero masks‌) So, if 70s punk x 90s grungey grrrl is you’re preferred fashion choice then feel free to join us at Tantrum as we worship at the alter of the ultimate alt-style icon that is Enid Coleslaw.

PONY Â TALE

by Laura-Jane Ross When  we   think   back   to   our   childhood,   we’re   often   graced   with   Toy   Story   style   memo-­ ries   of   our   furry   and   plastic   best   friends.   Friends   that   were   everything   we   need-­ ed, because that’s how we made them up to be. The 80’s and 90’s were great for all the different toys that girls could have and be imaginative with. Beanie Babies, Furbies, and my personal favourites; My Little Ponies. Days on end would be spent with these multi-coloured plastic horses, taking them on adventures and creating unique personalities for every single one of them. It was innocent fun at it’s best, but quite recently I’ve found myself asking (and I know I’m not alone in this): Where are they now? In a bid to answer this question, I entered the world of collectLQJGHDGVHWRQĂ€QGLQJP\ROGSODVWLFIULHQGVDQGOHDUQLQJ some new things about the plastic-pony world along the way. Collecting at an age past thirteen might sound a little odd, especially when the ‘collections’ in question are in IDFWFKLOGUHQ¡VWR\V7KLVZDVWKHĂ€UVWWKRXJKWWKDWHQWHUHG my mind, but it was quickly kicked back out again when I realised that there’s a whole online world of people out there who are looking for remnants of their childhood too. I stumbled upon the My Little Pony Arena - an online community where collectors trade, sell, chat and customize WKHLURZQSRQ\FUHDWLRQV,ZDVZDU\DWĂ€UVWP\SHUFHStions (probably like the rest of the modern world) were along the lines of ‘hmm, do I want to be associated with

these middle-aged freaks?’. The answer, I found, was yes. And as it happens, the ‘freaks’ in question turned out to be everyday, average people, just looking to gain a little bit of their childhood back. To take a hold of something that they used to cherish so much and try and bring that adolescent happiness into their mundane, everyday lives. That was it. From then, I was hooked. My herd was gradually growing, but it paled in comparison to the pony colonies of some of the friends’ I’d made on the arena. In the community, some members have as many as 2000 ponies, and dedicate whole rooms of their houses to showcasing their achievements. I soon discovered there were ponies I couldn’t even have imagined existed. There were even foreign variants, which were dubbed in the community as ‘Nirvanas’ and beneath all the plastic playfulness, were people that I’d have never met if it weren’t for this shared love of something so simple. People from all over the world, from various different backgrounds and different decades.

fun, it wasn’t harming anyone. I had to agree. Finding, restoring and displaying my growing collection gave me a sense of indulgence. I felt happier every time I saw them. But most of all, I felt young again. My inner child was squealing inside with delight. I felt inspired. Collecting has always been a quirk of human nature. Whether it be postage stamps, bottle caps or plastic horses, it gives everyone a sense of achievement who embarks on it. There’s a thrill, a chase, and a reward at the

When  and  How  did  Photoautomat  all  start  out? Photoautomat was established about 6-7 years ago in Germany by my friends Ole and Asger. They started off with one booth in Berlin. Back then it was just a fun project for them, but soon they became very popular and they had to install more booths to meet the demand. After Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, Italy, Paris and the newest addition in Vienna followed. $IWHUPDQ\YLVLWVWR%HUOLQDQGHQGOHVVSKRWRERRWKVVHVVLRQV,ÀQDOO\GHFLGHGWZR\HDUVDJRWRLQVWDOOWKHÀUVWERRWKLQ/RQGRQ As  the  machine  is  a  1970’s  vintage  photo  booth,  what  is  it  like  maintaining  it?

The FaCtory   Photography  Andrzej  lepka Styling  Amy  Edgar

The word  ‘factory’  for  most  conjures  up  images   of   a   large   drab   space,   filled   with   mechanical   machinery   and   bored   workers in hairnets and 1940s attire…skip back to the 60s however, and you’ll find the word ‘factory’ was associated with something that was far from dull and monotonous. For it was Andy Warhol’s illustrious factory in Midtown Manhattan that became the hippest hangout in New York City and a symbol of the decade that was ruled by the young. Warhol’s factory was a hub of creativity, frequented by drag queens, drug addicts, musicians, actors and general arty-types who became known as ‘Warhol Superstars’. The talented and often troubled superstars included Billy Name, Nico, Candy Darling and, of course, the infamous and gorgeous Edie Sedgwick.
