We came home from the party late one night and made this tape. Some of it is mixed, some of it is mashed but most of it is just jammed together in a hauntingly whimsical sonic frenzy.

And here it is.

La Roux – In For The Kill (Skream remix)
Phoenix – Lisztomania (Classixx remix)
Metronomy – A Thing For Me (Breakbot remix)
Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition (Evil Nine remix)
Architecture In Helsinki – Heart It Races (Spruce Lee remix)
Passion Pit – Sleepyhead
Pogo – Expialidocious
Architecture In Helsinki – That Beep
Shazam – Luckier
Jesse Rose feat. Hot Chip – Forget My Name
Lykke Li – Little Bit (AutoErotique Bootleg remix)
Amanda Blank – Might Like You Better (Midiots remix)
M83 – Kim & Jessie
Bird Automatic – About The Money
Passion Pit – The Reeling
Opiuo – Slip
Faux Pas – Chasing Waterfalls
Grace Jones – Williams’ Blood (Aeroplane remix)
Phoenix – Lisztomania (Alex Metric remix)

We've also re-uploaded Sort Of Like A Dream, the last mix we posted on here. So you can chew on that too if you're so inclined.

And I'm spent.

Joe Cocker at Woodstock

When we build our time machine Woodstock will be the first destination.

This is partly because it was the greatest party in the history of the human race but also just for the fact that Joe Cocker plays a mean air guitar.

Steve Hooker styling EC

If you were browsing through the Weekend Australian on Saturday you may have noticed Olympic gold medalist and deadset legend Steve Hooker rocking out (excuse the pun) in Eleventh Commandment.

Here he is on the front cover wearing our Socialite tee:

Being one of Australia's best athletes and arguably the most stylish ranga in the country you are bound to hear lots more about the great man in the future.

Here he is showing off his bling:

And here he is getting high:

No wait, that was Michael Phelps.

This is Steve Hooker getting high:

Lunatics Competition

We're excited to officially launch our new competition 'Lunatics'. It's super simple, fun and you can win shit. Snap.

All you have to do is send us your best picture/s featuring any Eleventh Commandment product. The competition will be open until December 6th (that's six weeks) and the winner will receive a $200 gift voucher to use in our online store.

The only rules are that the picture must feature an Eleventh Commandment garment and you must be comfortable with it being published on our blog. So for example if you have a pic of yourself (or even better someone else) styling in EC at an erotic orgy in an opium den that you're happy for the world to see then by all means send it in.

We will judge the winner based on whichever picture we think is the most outrageous / stylish / depraved / ridiculous / incriminating / sexy / clever or some combination thereof. To enter email your pictures to with the subject 'Lunatics'.

To get the ball rolling here are a bunch of killer pics that have already been sent in to us:

Eleventh Commandment at NJAL Notting Hill pop-up store

We're psyched to announce this Friday and Saturday our proddy will be part of the Not Just A Label pop-up store in London's Notting Hill. If you're kicking it in London at the mo you should definitely jimmy on over to this event as there will be plenty on offer from a whole stack of talented designers.

If you're not in London you better try hitch a ride with this guy to get there or maybe just build yourself one of these:

Assuming you don't drown it will totes be worth it.

Anonymous Online Haters

This phenomenon has been prevalent for a while now but we thought it was about time we said something about a certain species known as Anonymous Online Haters (AOH). I'm sure you've encountered these creatures, who it seems must be breeding judging by the steady increase in their presence online.

An AOH can pop up anywhere on the internet where a comment box is provided. Youtube is a favourite hangout, but by far the most interesting / pathetic variation is the AOH that emerges whenever a music festival line up is announced. For evidence of this all you need to do is log onto pretty much any ITM forum and read some of the comments of haters that bitch about line ups as if they're being forced at gunpoint to attend the party.

Recently we had a classic AOH grace us with their presence on this very blog. We did a profile of an extremely talented young artist called Pogo (see post here) which got some really positive feedback. It also got this response from someone called 'Mike':

"This music is completely and utterly queer and whoever listens to it has dangerously high levels of estrogen and needs a testosterone boost. There is nothing professional about his camera work or his music - you're all just freaks of nature who need to be shot."

Now we don't know Mike but we imagine he looks a little something like this.

To be fair we actually found Mike's comment pretty funny so we can't pretend to be too concerned about the whole thing and we're sure Pogo would be equally indifferent. But it does raise the question what do these AOHs hope to achieve by sitting at home hiding behind their curtin of anonymity trying to bring other people down for no apparent reason?

While we can't give you any answers - we can take one for the team. We'd like to invite all the AOHs out there to unleash all your pent-up digital fury on us. Don't hold back...get it all out of your system with whatever you can come up with (but don't bother telling us we need to be shot, someone's already beat you to it).

Hopefully after all the hate has been vented you can go about your business treating people online like you would treat people in the real world. Either that or you'll just continue to the next blog to hate a little more, but we hope it's the former.

Some people have real problems

EC - Dr Phil would have a field day

For shits and giggles

Mondayitis has hit hard at EC HQ. As a result we need some entertainment, so we've devised this devious little scheme.

First of all...check out the following images from around this blue marble we live on.

We want you to incorporate these five images into the best little story you can come up with and email it to

We'll take submissions until Friday. The most entertaining / outrageous / stupendous yarn will win some free proddy. Sorted.

Night of Fashion

The crazy crew behind the Gold Coast's raddest club The Ruby Tramp are throwing a bash to celebrate the launch of Queensland's latest style hotspot No Name Lane.

No Name Lane is a new boutique which stocks the finest threads from the likes of Stolen Girlfriends Club, Casette Society, RVCA, Dr Denim, Rittenhouse, I Heard They Eat Cigarettes, Reiss Radvanyi, AM Eyewear, Gram Footwear and of course ourselves. Holy shit that's a lot of cool labels.

The shindig will include entertainment from none other than The Down & Dirty DJs as well as a whole bunch of other tomfoolery. We'll hit you with some more deets soon but in the meantime you should go and put a huge red circle around black Friday next month and make sure you do whatever it takes to be at The Ruby Tramp when this thing goes down....aiiiight?!
