Sean and Stuart try a ten minute make-up challenge

By admin on November 13th, 2008

Resident make up expert Zara put male cosmetics to the test recently thanks to our two willing guinea pigs, Sean Hannam and Stuart Waterman. The guys bravely applied bronzer, eyeliner and even fake eyelashes for the test with varying results. All I’m going to say is that from Stuart’s expertly made-up eyes the My Chemical Toilet editor’s either been been in too many male grooming vids or he has a weekend job none of us know about…

Where he’s a woman. What I’m trying to get across here is that Stuart Waterman is a woman in his spare time.

“I’m Burial and so’s my wife, etc”

By admin on August 8th, 2008

From the gilded mouth of our My Chemical Toilet Editor, Stuart:

Are you ga-ga over Burial‘s album?

Are you? Really? Or do you feel you have to say that because loads of chinstrokers have? I have to admit I found the album dull. Maybe you need to listen to it on a night bus going through south London at 4am or something to really get into its dubstep vibe. I only travel by limo, so I don’t know if I’ll ever really “get it”.

For those who have bought into the Burial cult, though, these high-larious t-shirts will allow you to show that a) you’ve heard of him; b) you have “a sense of humour”; c) you are keen to let the world know these two facts through the medium of clothing.

Kind of a shame he appears to have just outed himself, then, although that is not confirmed at the time of writing and so on and so forth. See more Burial-related reasons to spunk money up the wall at I Am Burial

The Hype Machine T-shirts

By admin on July 10th, 2008

hype_machine_t-shirts.gifAre music website t-shirts the new band t-shirts? Well, let’s hope not – but I have to admit I’ve already shelled out for one of the t-shirts being flogged by uber music aggregator The Hype Machine.

For the uninitiated, this is the site that has revolutionised the way I – and a hell of a lot of other people – have discovered and listened to music over the last year or two.

The shirts are going for a very reasonable $20 (plus delivery charges), and are available from The Hype Machine’s merchandise page.

Velvet Revolver’s Matt Sorum opens LA boutique.

By admin on May 16th, 2008

Over at My Chemical Toilet Stuart is giving us a blow-by-blow account of the Sorum Noce opening in his own inimitable style:

matt_sorum.gifMatt Sorum, drummer of Velvet Revolver, has launched his very own fashion label with a man called Max Noce. No, I don’t know how you’re supposed to pronounce Noce. Their label is called… wait for it…


If any “branding” expert got paid dollar dollar bill y’all for thinking up that monicker, I may just poo myself.

Anyway, Matt and Max – or MaxMatt – aim to provide gennelmen with “an elegant, innovative line of rock-inspired couture”. Their boutique in Los Angeles has just opened, so let’s have a look at it, shall we?

“Design me a t-shirt at” demands a swearing-festooned Moby

By admin on April 25th, 2008




So this year we’ve had pop stars asking you to write them songs. We’ve had them asking you to name their “product”. Any other odd-jobs the pop firmament needs a hand with?

Yes. How about MAKING THEIR BLOODY CLOTHES? OK, not making exactly. Nobody’s asking you to sit there stitching together some home-made underwear for the Pussycat Dolls (I know, shame – you can have a go and send it to them anyway, that’s what I do).

Stuart tries Jean Paul Gaultier Monsieur ‘guyliner’

By admin on April 24th, 2008

Part two of the Stuart Waterman makeover, and I have to confess that after applying the eyeliner I laughed like I have never laughed before in my life, emitting some sort of inhuman cackle!

Anyway, the verdict? The eyeliner may have been a step too far for Stuart but he did take away the sheer gel bronzer so I declare a victory for male make up. The Jean Paul Gaultier range is priced between £29 and £9 and is available nationwide.
