This week at Amplified HQ we’re loving B Famous London. A boutique fashion store, focusing on rock ‘n roll, the guys over there sell everything from band merchandise to miniature guitars and most importantly to us, the full range of Amplified products!
Find them in the heart of Notting Hill, London – you can visit seven days a week and check out their rock ‘n roll design, the perfect backdrop for our Amplified stock!
What are you waiting for – the guys are waiting for you.
The humble t- shirt has come a long way since its origins back in 1913 when they held the function of regulation undergarments for the U.S Navy. Two decades on and the University of Southern California issued t-shirts to its football players to stop their shoulder pads chafing. It wasn’t until students started stealing these for casual-wear that they hit the fashion scene! This crime wave spawned the original printed t-shirts with the university stencilling ‘USC’ onto them as a crime prevention tactic.
You can’t say Amplified doesn’t teach you anything, but enough of the history lesson and back to 2013 where the t-shirt holds a pretty high position on the hierarchy of garments, particularly the printed t-shirt for Spring/Summer 13. With the likes of Commes Des Garcons, Henry Holland, Alexander McQueen and Givenchy rolling them out for the sunnier seasons you know you’re onto a winner.
So where can you get some cool and quirky printed t-shirts that won’t set you back a month’s rent. . . AMPLIFIED OF COURSE!
Head to the shopping part of this site to check out the t-shirts you’ll be ‘rocking’ this summer, because after all students committed crime to get these into fashion for you!
A very (belated!) Happy New Year from everyone here at Amplified, we hope you aren’t feeling too down with the January blues.
If you are missing Christmas (and more importantly the time off!), why not take a trip down memory lane, turn up the heat and play some classic Rolling Stones to make you feel better? It is, after all, 49 years to the day since the band released their first ever EP; the imaginatively titled ‘The Rolling Stones’ had four covers of U.S. ‘rock ‘n’ soul’ classics.
Packed with Mick Jagger’s raspy vocals, the EP was in the UK charts for 11 weeks and shot straight to number one.
So forget the New Year’s resolution of going to the gym and pay homage to the iconic band by rocking out to their greatest albums and squeezing yourself into one of our great Rolling Stones designs.
The Santa hats are out, the Christmas songs are on the radio (more The Ramones’ Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight) than Mariah) and the office is feeling jolly – it can only be the happiest time of year!
As well as celebrating the arrival of a fat guy in a red suit bearing presents and the birth of the son of God, Christmas has some important musical anniversaries, too. In fact, the Sex Pistols played their last ever UK gig on Christmas Eve, 1977 and the Beatles’ nine-week run at number 1 on the UK chart began on Christmas Day 1965. The album? Rubber Soul, which spent an impressive 42 weeks in the chart in total.
Whatever your plans over the festive period, eat drink and be merry, but pay homage to the great musical anniversaries we have, too in your new Amplified t-shirt (because there is one under your tree, right?)
Merry Christmas from everybody at Amplified!
This week at Amplified HQ we’re showing appreciation for the musician turned DJ, Jam Master Jay.
The talented DJ was part of the 1980’s hip hop band Run DMC – the first band from the hip hop genre to have a gold selling album and receive a nomination for a Grammy, the most prestigious music award.
Run DMC had a range of greatest hits including; ‘It’s like that’, ‘It’s Tricky’, ‘Run’s House’, and ‘Walk this way’.
Sadly Jam Master Jay, was murdered 10 years ago this week in his recording studio in Queens, NY.
To celebrate the life of the skillful musician and the success of Run DMC, show your appreciation with a tee or sweatshirt from Amplified.
Pink Floyd fever has bought Amplified HQ to a stand still today leaving us all feeling a little ‘Comfortably Numb’!
On this evening in 1994, the band played the opening to a hefty 15-night run at Earls Court. Unfortunately, the first night didn’t quite go as planned – after a minute of playing, one of the stands holding the fans collapsed leading to the gig being cancelled.
Thankfully everyone was ok and with Pink Floyd not wanting to leave their fans feeling disappointed, the boys sent out a free T-shirt along with an apologetic note to the gig-goers and rescheduled the evening. We think that’s pretty awesome going!
So don’t be ‘Another Brick In The Wall’ and stand out in a Pink Floyd tee today from Amplifed. It might not be personally sent from the guys themselves but it’s the next best thing!
Today at Amplified HQ we are playing tribute to the most successful band to have ever graced the earth – The Beatles. This week bears heavy significance for the iconic band for many reasons, including the premier of The Beatles cartoon series on ABC TV in 1965. The pilot episode, ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’ pictured the animated band on the ocean floor meeting a lovesick octopus. Rad, hey?
Also on this date in both 1967 and 1969, ‘Beatlemania’ hit the studio, with the fab four recording ‘The Fool on the Hill’ at the infamous Abbey Road, London and ‘Cold Turkey’ with Eric Clapton, respectively.
So ‘Come Together’ and join us in putting on your favourite Beatles style and saluting the fab four!
