Everyone owns a checkered shirt, almost certainly. It is the quintessential and often parodied hallmark seen at gigs, worn by artists and promoted by fashion.
Checkered Shirt is an acknowledgment of this, a tip of the poncy trilby if you will. Far from being just another face in the crowd, it is about recommending music and such like to all in a straightforward way.
Rather than being bombarded with cliches and hipster jargon, I aim to provide my own views on what I like in these industries at the moment.
I’m not out to convince, sell or persuade, merely to bring to light artists, films, directors and authors I find particularly compelling.
Hopefully you will get the same joy out of these things as I do.
