I've been quietly watching the dandy sophistication of A Child of the Jago for a few years now, and I'm definitely a fan. Jago is the English label that Joe Corre and Barnzley have created and evolved into a strange mixture of luxury fabrics, exquisite craft, and raw, provocative imagery. Not surprising, I suppose, after considering both the genetic background and subcultural heritage of the two masterminds...
It was a great surprise last night when a +44 number appeared on my phone, and the voice on the other end was Barnzley himself. We had a great conversation about all things Zoltar, Special Needs, 33, Peoples Republic, Agent Provocateur, House, Sex/Seditionaries, World's End and the like. Hopefully we'll be able to work together in the near future.
