Modern Studies : Referendum – Brian Sweeney

In 2014 Scotland held an Independence Referendum.

Brian Sweeney long time friend and collaborator of Six Eight Seven Six set out to create a project to document this process.

Featured here are some of the images captured during this period.

Photographs  will be available to order 10 x 8 Inch and printed on Hahnemule rag paper

 

SIGG x 6876

We are delighted to be working with a brand we’ve long admired and have been a regular consumer of for many years.

Sigg (Established 1908) in Switzerland and still manufactured in Frauenfeld.

The Swiss original in a classic design. Made from a single piece of high-quality

aluminum, making it light and strong. It keeps a tight seal, even with carbonated drinks. The highly elastic interior coating is resistant against fruit acids, is tasteless and free from BPA and phthalates. The practical screw cap enables comfortable carrying with just one finger.

Jason Jules is a writer and creative director. If he were to compete on Mastermind he’d specialise in music or menswear and probably say ‘pass’ to all the general knowledge questions. He’s super interested in Modernism right now and is about to launch a blog dedicated to ‘everything from Bauhaus, acid house and your mum’s house.

Audio : Cesar Rodriguez Blanco ” I Shall Fear No Evil “

 

A young historian and educator enthusiastic about music and fashion. Coming from a background of subculture. I’m keen on exploring the connections between the different dimensions of the past and present subcultural reality, from the inside and from the outside. Captured in a number of articles for fanzines and magazines, as well as a paper for the prestigious Culture & History Digital Journal. I collect records of many sorts but I have special weakness for Jamaican sounds from the 60’s and 70’s.

“I shall fear no evil” is a mixtape for 6876. A fine selection of timeless early reggae, rocksteady and ska classics. Mixed and recorded in mono at home (E8) during isolation with strictly vinyl from my personal collection.
