indie christmas shopping




I think more than one person on my list will be getting this calendar. Each of Nikki McClure's images "is an original papercut, cut from a single piece of paper."

From buyolympia.com or Greer Chicago.

p.s. Check out the rad interview with McClure on Fecal Face. Sorry Portland, but Olympia invented indie.

  4. Indie, in this usage, meaning just what, exactly?

  5. Did you read the interview, LPC?

    When I say "Olympia invented indie" I'm being silly, of course, but I'm referencing McClure's relationship with K Records and Kill Rock Stars, two Oly labels who pioneered "indie rock" before the term was coopted by mainstream record companies in the 90's.
