BURN IT DOWN...


This tee design (and shopper bag) was born out of creative ideas on our forum and acts as a tribute to our friend Bruce, a long-time supporter and associate of the CC brand. The item itself gives a subtle nod to several of Bruce’s lifelong loves, making a musical reference to a track which inspired him to follow a literary path, winding its way from his early adulthood to the present day.
Originally released as a Bernie Rhodes produced single titled Dance Stance - Burn It Down talks to ignorance of Irish heritage. A theme Wolverhampton born to Irish parents Kevin Rowland would visit throughout his whole career. The band, Dexy's Midnight Runners, unhappy with Rhodes production, revisited the song to kick off their debut LP Searching For The Young Soul Rebels. That first outing for the team that met in caffs inspired many Young Soul Rebels - none more so than a young Bruce Gorrie.
This release, is visually intertwined with the Kubrick Nam epic which starred Matthew Modine as Private Joker. Modine famously turned down the Tom Cruise role in Top Gun as it didn't sit well with his politics. Three politically savvy mavericks for the price of one.
AVAILABLE ON A TEE AND A TOTE BAG, THIS THURSDAY AT 7PM.
"Jimmy? Yeah? For God's sake - Burn it down!"
Huge thanks to Days Of Speed for the design and to Russ N' Pea.
