I’m with the Band

Geoffrey Rectin (far left) & the Train Robbers

Geoffrey Rectin (far left) & Train Robbers

 ”Hi, my name is Geoffrey and I’m the lead singer and guitarist for a Sydney band called the Train Robbers. We play indie pop and we’ve also got a sax player.” Humble isn’t he!? We’ll fill in the gaps! The Train Robbers have spent the last 2 years playing the gigging circuit with bands such as Last Dinosaurs, Made in Japan and The Cabins. You may have heard them on FBI Radio & Triple J where they continue to get airtime. Right now they’re recording an anticipated debut EP which is scheduled for release in 2013, and receiving pretty entertaining reviews via triplejunearthed.com/trainrobbers
 So, where does Geoffrey & his posse like to hangout?

Mr James Noble

Today we’re chatting to James Noble; the founder and UX director of Melbourne UX HTTPster digital agency, Carter- and a local Fitzrovian.  Seeing as the new Carter Digital HQ is perched over Fitzroy’s Brunswick street in the newly renovated Moran & Cato building, he’s spoilt for choice and is often asked where he likes to eat. Well, if you feel like enjoying a delicious coffee, sucking down a muffin or simply enjoying the view on a mid-week afternoon, ‘Best Fitzroy Treats’ is the street for you. So what’s on it?

A bookworm’s guide to getting out and about

What’s Cam reading!?

Today we bring you an espresso shot of art and culture with Cam from Surry Hills Booksellers, Oscar & Friends! When he’s not digging through the store’s quirky book collection, Cam frequents plenty of snacking corners, galleries, and landmarks and does his mates a favour by adding them to Posse!

Cam loves his historical and cultural stops across the globe and gets his worldly art fix from the modern New Museum in New York City. Closer to home, he recently had the pleasure of visiting the Art Gallery of New South Wales for the Picasso and Francis Bacon exhibitions. When he would rather take a more hands-on approach as a craftsman, Cam heads to the Bower in Marrickville to breathe new life into the knicks and knacks to be found in what he calls his trash and treasure wonderland.

If you’ve eaten pizza in Italy and announced upon returning home that you’ll never eat pizza outside of Naples again, we have news for you! The guys from NOM Pizza are not only Italian- they’re from Naples- and they make ”pizza so good Italy is jealous!”. 

We were lucky enough to meet David Anderson, one of NOM’s talented “pizzialo’s’ and ask him about some of his favourite places on earth.

Hi David! Can you show us a picture of a pizza from NOM?

Bright Cool Places from Bright Green Laces

November 18, 2012 at 11:17 pm

Posse had lots of fun with Shereen, author of the fabulous fashion blog; Bright Green Laces.  She gave us the lowdown on where to shop, eat, drink, read and shop some more.

Bright Green Laces is Shereen’s addictive fashion blog, where she shares her eclectic wardrobe and beautiful styling tips. The blog name came from her first major fashion purchase: a pair of plain converse that she customised with bright green shoe laces to stand out from the crowd.

Shereen lives, eats and breathes fashion, so we were dying to see where all her clothing and accessory gems are sourced from.  Living in Sydney’s Western Suburbs, Shereen tends to go on ‘purposeful’ shopping expeditions, regularly visiting her favourite stores. These are the special stores made her short list:

Innovative Art – Posse Meets Gallery 2010

November 8, 2012 at 2:48 am

We recently met style guru and Gallery 2010 owner, Sam Preston.

For those who haven’t heard of Gallery 2010, it is a contemporary gallery in a leafy Surry Hills garage.  Supporting emerging artists, Gallery 2010 is non –profit and curator-run.

Gallery 2010 is loved by many Posse fans and we had the pleasure of meeting Sam to find out which places she loves and recommends from around the world.

Here’s what she has to say…..

If you love to wine and dine cafe style, then the Revolver in Annandale will be your cup of tea.. Literally! In Sam’s opinion it is ‘the best café in Sydney, [which] ticks all the boxes’ – this is quite a claim! Revolver has some expectations to live up to!

A coffee lover, Sam insists Corduroy, in Surry Hills is the place to go for some caffeination! Corduroy use Little Marionette coffee which is deliciously smooth. Sam used to live near the Little Marionette Roastery in Annandale, but the Corduroy is now the closest purveyor.
