The Quiet Life
Note To Self
Death Rite was a Sydney based zine from late 88-91 that covered metal & crossover from around the world through the golden era of tape trading and zines.
Paying tribute to that era, DEATH RITES has put out it's second run of tshirts and long sleeve tshirts, with the artwork created by our friend FRENCH (UK).
You won't find Death Rites anywhere else in Adelaide.
Under the influence.
Supply Store, in Sydney, has been influencial for over 10 years, and we are proud to have formed a friendship with them since our inception.
Working closely with local, iconic illustrators and artists, such as Ben Brown, Glenno Smith and Tristan Ceddia and many others, SUPPLY are also well known for collaborating with the likes of international icons, Suicidal Tendencies, French (UK) and MF Doom to name a few.
Supply's influences in music, skate and art cultures and presentation of the Australian heritage and aesthetic are prevalent in the brands releases.
Many try, few can pull it off.
New range has been released and is available to Adelaide at the Corner Store.
Hard to find on Australian shores is Boston staple and 'no bullshit' brand, 90EAST.
Owned by Lino Gonzalez, 90East is built on the culture of its crew and supporters.
Drawn from the session, the travel, the hard work put in, standing by your standard.
For those on the margins by choice, with no interest in what the rest are doing.
Zac Cooke has a photo gallery up on the 90East site, click HERE for a look.
The new range is available on the shelves now.
Support the independents.
For those not feeling anything else out there, when the lame and over-done isn't cutting it, the Melbourne based dudes at CRAWLING DEATH present their response.
Three patch hats make up the first range, and you won't find them anywhere else in ADL.
Each one comes with the Crawling Death Zine No.1.
Uncompromising shit for free-thinkers.
Life's a bitch.
Our first drop from the latest PALACE release is in store, with variations of the classic tri-logo tshirts, new season prints and hats.

Pontus Alv and the hard working crew at POLAR are one of the few brands pushing a new direction in a sometimes stale industry.
Bringing back to fore the connection between art, creativity and positive skateboarding, and focusing on a better quality end product, you know what you're going to get by supporting the new wave of independents.

New to the Corner Store (and long overdue) is NOTE TO SELF out of Melbourne.
Created by ex-Adelaidean, Max Olijnyk, all Note to Self pants/shorts are lovingly crafted in Melbourne.
Shorts are available now, but are in limited supply, so make moves.
A few words from Max about the shorts -
"Using techniques handed down through generations, we’ve devised an ingenious strategy to ensure our shorts fit better than any before them. “We wanted to make them fitted, but relaxed,” I said, before adding grimly, “Comfort is key."
Hailing from NYC, one of our favourites at the Corner Store is DQM.
After opening the first "Dave's Quality Meats" in Manhattan’s Bowery district,
a site of counterculture since the 1950s, home to CBGBs, the beatniks and punk rock, DQM was small store now turned fully fledged brand.
The brand has its history built on a culture and relationships that began long before the store was conceived.
Continuing to push the envelope for a new board and bike generation, we are proud to present DQM to Adelaide.
Only ever presenting solid, quality pieces - tshirts and headwear are available now with a larger range (incl. cut and sew) is due to land in mid '14.
