It is weird how certain music can make you feel or behave in a certain way. Each time I hear the Swedish band Reeperbahn (named after the street Reeperbahn in Hamburg) I feel like doing one thing only, draw stripes. They sing about the cold war, marrakesh and peep-shows. Still the only thing on my mind is straight lines and how they relate to each other in different ways depending on size and quantity. Coincidence, or do they really sound like stripes? Either way, listening to Reeperbahn with a white paper in front of me
it is barely impossible to create something that do
not contain straight lines. Conclusion, Reeperbahn is the perfect music to listen to if you are painting your walls with stripes or like in this case, making a striped T-shirtcollection.
