Honey Dijon

“I feel like the internet has killed culture and subcultures because it’s made everyone separatist, no one goes outside of their comfort zone. Facebook and Instagram are not reality.

I sat down with him a few weeks ago, after the news had just been announced, to get some more background, find out what the archive means to him and let him get a few things off his chest. Let the rant commence…

DISNEYROLLERGIRL: Let’s start with some background. Where were you in 76/77?
Joe Corre: I was born in 1967 so in 77 I was ten. As a kid growing up in south London, I grew up with a lot of children of the Windrush generation, around Balham, Brixton and our flat in Clapham was sort of the centre of all this activity, surrounding punk rock. (more…)

If you have a little, condensed group of people that have the same mindset, something will happen. It will attract other people.” (more…)
