Hellooooooooooo! And welcome to the 153rd EVER newsletter from rathergood!

I have something utterly wonderful for you today! Look! Look at this incredible song about my Tiny Chainsaw!


Isn't it spectacular! Get your amazing Tiny Chainsaw hoody here! It's perfect for all your looting needs!


You can get the song on the album The Ham Machine on iTunes innit:


That's about it for this week, except to mention that we had a very strange week here at rathergood HQ in Hackney. Monday began pretty normally, but in the afternoon groups of drunk kids started converging on Mare Street, saying they were going to start a riot. This sounded a lot like bravado until quite suddenly there were 2 helicopters overhead and a riot was actually really in progress.

We locked up and went to find our families, but a lot of people had to stay. This is what the office looked like that afternoon


and this is the shop opposite


It doesn't normally look like that here you know. That is an unusual circumstance.

By the way did I mention I love you? I love you so much I'd go and smash up my community and burn peoples cars and businesses for a laugh and smash in to shops and steal all the clothes and trainers I want.

Oh hang on, that's not right is it? No, only a total A-HOLE would do that. Sorry, my mistake.

Mwah mwah hugs and superkisses!

Yours sincerely

Who the f**k is the posh looking bloke who appears to be overseeing the looting of the shop opposite your place ( far right of picture )
He looks terribly out of place wearing that blazer, or do you suppose he had just nicked it and was wearing it in an attempt to look innocent when the bobbies turned up?

Pigs might fly!

i recognise him but i don;t know him. he clearly isn;t one of the looters,l i suspect he works at the carhartt shop, or else he is one of the guys from nearby, trying to look disapproving without getting stabbed.

brave lad. respect.
