Dodgy ‘Cold Tea’ Tea Towel & Print

Posted on February 1, 2013 

To Celebrate 20 years since the release of ‘the Dodgy Album’

Dodgy ‘Cold Tea’ Tea Towel

‘Cold Tea’ The Dodgy Album Print

Be careful where you tread
You don’t want to do any harm
And you don’t have to have a reason
To do what you do when you do it
When you don’t want to be all alone
You can turn to me ‘cos it’s easy
There’s nothing worse than cold tea

You say it’s in the wrist
It’s in the rhythm of your palm
You life’s and open field
And you can run, run till you drop
To lie in long grass
Or between the sheets that you brought along
We forget the pot that was hot before it got cold

Make your mark and hope it works ‘cos there’s more to life to see
Make your mark, make it loud and clear, ‘cos there’s more to life with me

Give you an inch and you’ll walk with a smile
Give me a slice and I’ll be quiet for a while
You’ve got to grow with what you believe, believe

GrowABrain & Longlive X Bored of Southsea

Posted on September 29, 2012 

Absolutely stoked to bring you a seven colour print for Bored of Southsea. It means a great deal to me to do a print for these guys as they literally hold up the strong island.

Tote, Crew neck Jumper, and Tees

Available through www.boredofsouthsea.co.uk


GrowABrain X Bored of Southsea

Here’s what they say:

Mr Russell Hardman, otherwise known as GrowaBrain, grew up on the mean streets of Portsmouth and still considers it home although residing in London. He’s spent the last few years working on everything from album art for power-pop trio Dodgy to designing T-shirts for London based Men’s fashion boutique Sefton. Amongst those, and literally countless other projects, he’s put on two incredible and well received exhibitions of his own work.

Longlive Cooperative is a new collective project that is for anyone and everyone. Primarily a vehicle for promoting nights in Portsmouth and London put on by Charlie Waddington, one of the DJs that made Pet Sounds an umbrella for the philosophy that a good tune’s a good tune and leave convention to duller nights.
This design was conceived as a nod to our hometown, taking a bit of a journey through Bored of Southsea tees that have caught Grow a Brain’s eye over the years, such as French’s Seagull
and ( Junior Bruce’s ) Jubru’s ‘Southsea Bronx Strong Island’ smiling sunshine
but all of course through an inimitable style that is Grow a Brain’s alone.

At seven colours on the T-Shirt and crew neck sweatshirt this is the largest that Bored of Southsea have done to date, with a thick, rich texture that does the ace image justice.
