Black Ferry Hamburg Opens Its Doors

We are excited to share with you the grand opening of yet another collectively run store, this time in Hamburg under the name „Black Ferry.“ The grand opening is this Saturday, and will include lectures, vegan food, live music, and a surprise band.
(I wont be there, having instead chosen to have some screws placed in my hand…not that Im bitter or anything about it…)

The complete invitation can be read in German below. Needless to say, this location is a great place to get Fire and Flames Music and Clothing (as well as some Partisano and Uptight) in Hamburg (together with the True Rebel Store). What else they carry….

„Am 4.8. ist es soweit. Erstmals öffnen sich die Türen von Black Ferry, unserem Laden, den wir zukünftig gemeinsam mit zwei Freunden in der Fährstraße 56(gleich neben unsere Werkstatt,wegen kurzen Wegen und so)betreiben werden.

In dem Geschäft wird es neben unseren Klamotten auch Sachen von befreundeten Labels und andere schicke Klamotten geben. Des weiteren gibts einen „Medienraum“ mit LP´s/CD´s und Büchern und gemütlichen Sofas zum gemütlichen Sitzen während des reinlesens. Außerdem haben wir auch an euer leibliches Wohl gedacht -natürlich nur an das Vegane – also gibt es bei uns auch eine Vegan-Food-Ecke mit Lebensmitteln zum Einkaufen und später Reinhauen.

Wir laden euch hiermit herzlich ein, mit uns die Eröffnung unseres Lädchens zu feiern.

Und weil wir es richtig schön haben wollen, bieten wir euch ein umfassendes Unterhaltungsprogramm: von 12-15 Uhr ist Kaffee und Kuchen und als Untermalung Musik vom Band. Ab 15:30 Uhr beginnt ein kleines Programm mit Lesung(Faulheit und Müßiggang), anschließend gibts HipHop ON PLATT(MC mit Schlagzeug Begleitung).
Und am Abends gibt es dann noch mal richtig was auf die Ohren. Die Leute kommen auf ihrer Kogge die Elbe runter, um Black Ferry zu entern und bringen wütende Bäuche und traurige Herzen mit. Yeah, das Zusammentreffen verspricht unterhaltsam zu werden!!!

Falls ihr es bis Samstag nicht abwarten könnt: Schaut euch einfach mal unsere Facebookseite an: Black Ferry.

Grüße an euch da draußen und bis Samstag,

Out with the Old, in with the New: Jacket Discount Action

As you might know, we rarely do discount actions or other gimmicks of the sort. And when we do, there is usually a good reason. Well, this time, there are two. In general, we are aiming to have the new webpage ready by early September (it will be the difference between the stone age and the space era!) and the more stuff we can get rid of, the less the work of entering new items into the new shop. So, look for quite a few discount actions over the next few weeks.

In particular, we begin again by drastically reducing the jacket prices. Why? Because we are again working on the newest round of jackets (mainly sweatjackets) for this Fall. Some new designs, some classics will be back, all are incredible.

Long story short… all jackets are up to 50% off for at least the next couple of weeks. Here you are…

And of course, still for 9€ the one you are all going crazy for…

Assorted Nr. 33: Banner Riddles, Hardcore is More than Music, Greek Elections, a Mining Town Resists, Roter Buchladen Soli, etc…

*You win some you lose some…Is what comes to mind when seeing this picture of some ARAB banners at a recent demonstration…

On the one hand, definite demo style and content points for
a. the fabric of the upper banner
b. the old school but not for that any less accurate slogan reading „In the Belly of the Beast“ (or in German, the heart, but same idea)
c. the graphic they used, of which we are clearly also fans…

On the other hand, somebody needs to please, please explain to us what on Earth „Anti-capitalista Real Ya“ is supposed to mean, because as a native Spanish speaker…I dont have the slightest idea. :-)

*As an anarchist, I find myself surprisingly obsessed with the Greek elections. In all honesty…I even stayed up all night following the vote tally being updated during last months elections. As far as the coming elections, so many questions…

Will SYRIZA really win the elections? If so, is this good or bad? Will they be able to form a government? Will SYRIZA move sharply to the right and simply become a renewed PASOK? Will the KKE continue its sectarian position and refuse to even meet with SYRIZA to discuss possible coalition prospects? What would a SYRIZA/KKE government look like? Is this something we want to see? Will Golden Dawns increased post election campaign of anti-immigrant terror (the latest example…) lead to their percentage of the vote significantly shrinking? Are they really so thuggish and stupid that they couldnt control themselves, or was this calculated strategy to show themselves as a real fighting force separate from the „political class“?

Questions upon questions…

*Speaking of crisis, in the Spanish state, a minin town and its youth resist the effects of the crisis:

*More than a few of you were not fast enough to order the „Hardcore is More than Music“ DVDs from the Czech Antifas before they sold out. Here is the full video on the web….

*Finally, this weekend, you can find us at the Stockholm anarchist bookfair!

Should this be a little too far North for you, Goettingen offers the Antifee festival this weekend, with the particular highlight of the Roter Buchladen soliparty…

„Der seit 1972 bestehende Rote Buchladen, von einem unabhängigen Kollektiv betrieben, ist ein wichtiger Bestandteil der Göttinger linken
Szene. Lange Jahre in der Roten Straße ansässig, befindet er sich mittlerweile am Nikolaikirchhof und lädt zum Stöbern in einem kleinen, aber feinen Sortiment linker Literatur, Belletristik, Sachbüchern, etc. ein. Außerdem bietet der Rote Buchladen die Werke der „Büchergilde Gutenberg“ an und kann alles – vom Lehrbuch bis zum Comic – meist in 24h bestellen.

Neben dem Offensichtlichen, nämlich dem Verkauf von Büchern, bietet der Rote Buchladen vielen Gruppen Postfächer und ermöglicht es dadurch anonym politischer Arbeit nachzugehen und so das Risiko von Repression zu verringern. Durch merkwürdige Gesetzgebung unverschuldet in eine finanzielle Schieflage geraten, benötigt der Rote Buchladen Unterstützung in Form von Geld. Wenn wir in Zukunft nicht nur die Wahl zwischen Buchhandlungskonzernen und Internetversand haben und einen wichtigen Teil linker Strukturen in Göttingen unterstützen wollen, muss jetzt gehandelt werden. Es gilt einer der wichtigsten Institutionen linker Politik in Göttingen unter die Arme zu greifen! Deswegen heißt es:

Solidarisch feiern! Linke Strukturen unterstützen und erhalten!

Daher laden wir euch ein, am Samstag den 16.06., nach einer wundervollen Zeit auf dem Antifee, mit uns gemeinsam im Stilbrvch für einen guten Zweck zu feiern!

Musikalisch wird das ganze begleitet von Maria Terror (BREAKBEAT UNIVERSE), Djane Tralala und anderen.

Special bis 1 Uhr: Bring 5 Deutschlandfahnen zur Theke und erhalte ein Getränk (außer Cocktail) gratis!

Unterstützt von:
Antifaschistische Linke International – FEMKO – Gruppe Gegenstrom – Grüne Hochschulgruppe – Grüne Jugend Göttingen – Jugend Antifa Göttingen – Rote Hilfe Ortsgruppe Göttingen – Schöner Leben Göttingen – YXK“

The Great Catalogue Update Part 9: FF Goes Euro 2012 and Re-Stocks / Atlanta Barras Go Hollywood

No, this isnt like with South Africa, Fire and Flames is not going to Poland or the Ukraine. As should be obvious, its not futbol we like…its Atlanta, Racing, and every four years, when the bug bites, Argentina in the World Cup. And with the exception of Argentina, what Racing and Atlanta do on the field unfortunately rarely has very much to do with what most of you would recognize as futbol. This in part why this blog has suddenly gone so quiet as far as futbol is concerned…its just been very depressing lately (the other part is simple lack of time). Atlanta, with three games to go, is fighting desperately to remain in second division, while Racing has been the source of one absurd scandal after the other, even one including a player drawing a firearm in the locker room.

Anyways, what we mean with „Fire and Flames Goes EM“ is our contribution to keeping you all part of the „in“ crowd as far as the mass insanity of the moment is concerned. So, for the occasion we have re-printed the great „Hate Germany“ shirt. Other suggested items of the moment…


No explanation needed.

For decorating your surroundings…

And finally, a bit of something to read about how much different of a form futbol and that which surrounds it can take…

The futbol related aside, after re-issuing a whole series of classic Fire and Flames designs last month, the next round is coming this month, with all the following designs being again available in all sizes…

*1945

*Class Pride


*Old School


(Bordeaux as well)

*Revenge

Finally, to start and end with futbol…

Tonight, at exactly the same time as Germany – Portugal, but much more strongly recommenden, our beloved Atlanta has a life or death game in the struggle to avoid relegation to third division. So, if those in Göttingen hear wild shouts of celebration, even though on your screen no goals have been scored, you will know why. It wont be the first time…Racing won the relegation match 2008 at the same time as the last Euro final, leaving many in the Rote Strasse wondering why people were wildly yelling „goool“ when nothing was happening on their screens. :-)
(If you are looking for even more altenative entertainment, Argentina vs Brazil is also taking place parallel to the Germany game…)

We leave you with a video from a coming sensationalist „documentary“ on Argentine barras in which Atlanta is very prominently featured…

The Great Catalogue Update Part 6: New Mob Action Shirts and Partisano Restocks

The Great and Glorious Catalogue Update marches on, still far from finished. However, the new Mob Action shirts and Partisano restocks do at least mark the last update as far as the clothing catalogue goes! As far as the new Mob Action designs are concerned, they are pictured here below, and you can see closeups of them by clicking on the respective image. Besides these, the classic „Mask“ design is again available in all sizes, and we have added the jacket „Action.“

As far as Partisanowear is concerned, no new designs, but many much loved classics are now available again in all sizes, such as: „Stop Control,“ „Read Books – Fight Fascism,“ „Sud,“ „Rebel and Antira,“ „Independencia,“ and „Working Class.“ Not only this, but we also have the Obrint Pas shirts again, and possibly more importantly, Obrint Pas’s latest CD, „Coratje“ which we had sold out of a couple of months ago, is available again as well.

That said, on to the new Mob Action designs…
