The Finders Keepers and Kluster have a lot in common. A love for their cities, a passion for great fashion, art and design and an all-encompassing adoration of music and good times. It’s why we make such good friends, all those common interests. There’s that, and then there is also our shared passion for emerging creatives and the vast amounts of joy we experience from the supporting of said creatives.
In order to celebrate this common bond Kluster and The Finders Keepers are giving two lucky designers the opportunity to win a space at our very own Kluster Presents... stall at the upcoming Spring/Summer markets at CarriageWorks, Sydney next month.
Think you've got what it takes to represent? Great, confidence is half the battle. All you need to do now is submit an application that adheres to The Finders Keepers selection criteria. And, if selected, arrive on the day with wares in hand ready to display and purvey. We’ll cover the set up costs, provide the table space and promise to talk about you to all our friends constantly in the lead up to this season’s event. It’s that easy. Just make sure you read over the selection criteria before applying.More...

According to Border Thieves...
The dominant paradigm that popular music operates under is an unyielding beast, begrudgingly approaching antiquity. Equal parts useful and redundant, the schema places musicians at a crossroads; those who adhere are can be rewarded with success but will all too often self-destruct (Metallica) and those who subvert will work day jobs until their brilliance is discovered in the pages of some retrospective book by someone who had the patience to wade into their murky depths (Mission of Burma).
But as is the case with most system dichotomies, choice is not a black/white divide. Here at Border Thieves, we choose to adhere to the dominant paradigm. Here at Border Thieves, we also get bored sometimes and indulge in some subversion.
Because… how can you smell the roses with a nose cut for spite?
So Kluster, with this in mind we have answered your questions. One answer will adhere to the rules of the interview and hopefully provide your readers with a snippet of information on which we hope an interest may spark and compel them to click a link and go listen to our songs. The other will subvert and we will read them back to ourselves in 10 years' time and say "No wonder nobody understood us".
We hope you get it.More...
