While Gallows aren’t tearing up stages all over the world, they’re doing other stuff. Like designing tshirts. Well, guitarist, Laurent has been doing that in conjunction with Topman CTRL and we’ve got one of his tshirts to give away. Ooh, fancy.
We also thought it would be a good idea to ask him why he’s gone and done it. Personally, I like vomitting lightning. And uniclowns.
What was your inspiration behind the eagle design?
I wanted to do something simple. I’m not a fan of the neon clown vomit lightning bolts and unicorn trend that people associate with this scene at the moment. I went for black and white and an upside down eagle. Nuff said.
What’s the best time you’ve ever had in Topman?
I actually DJed in Topman once as part of the Underage Fest promotion. It was pretty damn funny because people thought the DJ tables was actually a cash register and they kept coming up to me trying to pay for stuff. Not only that there was a rule that none of the music was allowed to contain curse words. The final song I played was Gwen Stefani and without realising over the shop PA you could hear, “This shit is bananas,” and indeed it was.
We would almost certainly buy some comfortably-distressed skinny jeans and a tshirt with an eagle printed on it from Lags. Especially if it’s this one.
If you would like to win this very un-bananas, but still rather excellent tshirt, designed by Mr Laurent Barnard of Gallows guitaring fame, you should enter this competition. You really should.
What is an eagle?
This competition is dead. Go click Competitions and find another one and win some other shit.
