I have always been an alternative girl, and love the vintage style. Vintage clothing has a way of making you feel so womanly and empowered!

I am 23 years old, and I am just beginning to try and put myself out into the world of modelling. My skills include being a Model Effects worker and Sculptor, and have worked on some major films including Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor 2, as well as sculpted props for Louis Vuitton window displays. I have done a small amount of modelling, for University students and friends.

I can’t believe it’s been almost 3 years! Since then I’ve moved from Texas to the Kentucky/Tennessee area, am now a member and Tennessee State Leader of Pinups for Patriots, was the cover model for Kat Club No.5 by Retro Lovely, and have immersed myself in the pinup lifestyle. Over the last couple years I’ve met so many lovely people who have such a passion for the rockabilly/pinup culture and I very much enjoy being surrounded by the music, pinups, classic cars, photographers, and overall style. It has been such an exciting experience and I’m so grateful for the support I’ve had along the way. Thank you so very much! With Love, Anna

La Dolce Morte

Posted by drew On January - 15 - 2015ADD COMMENTS 360 views

ekberg1The last week I’ve been preoccupied with thoughts of film, time, life, and death. It all ties together with Federico Fellini’s famous film, La Dolce Vita and the death of famed bombshelter-era bombshell, Anita Ekberg this last weekend. I’m not a Fellini expert, my tastes in vintage movies tend to run more towards the Universal monster movies starring Lon Chaney Jr. Nor am I a devotee of Ekberg, but rather a more casual fan. And yet here I am, moved to write in effect about her death and her place in classic cinema.

So how did we get to this point, then? Going off my previously described affection for classic monsters, it should surprise no one that I also devour my share of horror and vampire novels. Most recently, I’ve become a fan of Kim Newman’s vast alternate history series, Anno Dracula. The first novel set naturally enough in Victorian London, using the Jack the Ripper murders as a setup for the horrorific goings on. The second novel takes us into World War One and deals with none other than the famous Bloody Red Baron of Germany. Finally, the third novel (Dracula Cha Cha Cha) takes us to 1959 Rome or more to the point, the Rome seen in films such as Roman Holiday or, you guessed it, La Dolce Vita. I received the novel as a Christmas present and recently started making my way through it.

ekberg2The book pays a tremendous homage to Fellini’s film, with it’s own variation on Ekberg’s famous dip in the Trevi Fountain ending in coupious amounts of vampire grue. I was familiar enough with La Dolce Vita to pick up on the references. But I admit to my shame, that despite being a self-proclaimed film buff, I had somehow managed to never see the movie, possibly due to it’s lack of vampires or werewolves. Maybe I’m just inheritantly some weird form of a low-brow snob? Whatever the reason, wading through the novel finally pushed me to get over that hump. On January 9th, I ventured into the Vulcan Video and rented both the Bill Murray military comedy Stripes and Fellini’s La Dolce Vita. I could almost feel Murray’s eyes gazing over the cover image of Ekberg as I left the store, DVD’s in hand.

Pinup of the week, three years later: Shannon Fatale

ShannonFatalebyF2KPhotographyPinkNightie-2

Since last being featured on Rockabilly-Online (http://psycho.rockabilly-online.com/?p=887), I have been busy with a ton of photo shoots, many with patriotic or military themes and sending many signed (and sometimes kissed) pinup photos to deployed troops.  If there’s any deployed troops seeing this, be sure to send me a message with your A/FPO address and I’ll send you a photo!
I’m still based in New York City and love dressing in vintage clothes, especially the dresses that were my grandmother’s and great aunt’s!  I love going to concerts to see live rock ‘n’ roll, and on the rare occasion I have spare time hanging out with friends and my fella.  My day job has gotten increasingly busy, but I do as many photo shoots as I can, and am always looking for clothing and accessories companies to model for and collaborate with!

The Reverend Horton heat “ REV” (Album review)

Posted by Mars On December - 29 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 453 views

ReverendBrand new album by the Reverend Horton Heat.

Never knowing what to expect from the Reverend I was anxious to put the cd on. Would he even stray further from his own brand of Psychorockinyourfacesurf a Billy  or perhaps back to the roots? Well I’m glad to tell ya he’s back in tiptop shape with lyrics stranger and funnier then ever like only the Rev can come up with, and the music is full of energy like it’s their first album.

Do take the time to read all the notes in the booklet the Rev wrote about the songs gives a great insight about the bands music , lyrics and the way the music industry works. Never would have guessed that even the Reverend Horton Heat gets told that his song is horrible by the Record Company (read the notes on schizoid)

Christmas Swan Market at Fenix Food Factory Rotterdam

Posted by Dee-Ann On December - 21 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 390 views

2014 swan market (24)Rotterdam is becoming more and more vintage hip. The Swan Market is an art fair, which started in Rotterdam but has now it’s follow ups in Dordrecht, Goes and Antwerp (Belgium). Every month you can visit the Swan market in different locations in Rotterdam indoor or outdoors. Today December 21st, I visited the indoor Christmas edition in a hall near the Fenix Food Factory. The hall is located at one of the many Rotterdam harbours, where cruise ships often lay, but in the past mainly ships transporting goods from and to abroad. The hall was a depot for such goods. Now it’s empty and used for events like this. That makes this location very special.

2014 swan market (2)All kinds of handmade products, arts, vintage stuff and special food is sold. I had trouble keeping my money in my pocket. But these things I really really needed so bad and wanted it for a long time. Like this cute little purse with bamboo handle.2014 swan market (11)

Another cuteness is this red, white wall three wheeled Thai “tuk tuk”. They transformed it into an espresso bar. Classy huh?

Moanin’ at midnight (book review)

Posted by Dee-Ann On November - 26 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 457 views

20140817_152349I was on holiday to Wales this year. Away from it all, but not quite all. I had to bring something relating to music, and I chose the biography of a man named Chester Burnett, better known as Howlin’ Wolf. I was immediately captured by the description of those hard times in the 1920s. Black people and their children working in the cotton fields. Young Chester abandoned by his mother at an early age, raised by his aunt and abusive uncle. Running away by train in search of his father. And how he worked the mules with his singing voice to break the land.
He learned to play the guitar by Charlie Patton and many more.
All kinds of anekdotes by Howling Wolf, his sisters and blues musicians who ever worked with him back in the days.

A very easy to read and inspiring book about rough times, passion for blues music and how it kept him alive.

Feminism or what?

Posted by Moulin On November - 16 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 701 views

I have had many jobs in my 23 years of life and I have had to wear many uniforms with them. I have been a ‘punk’, a grunge goth, a Victorian goth, and now a rockabilly wannabe pinup star. I have worn many different styles and many different makeup-ed faces to (or lack there of). Some I fell into, some I was pressured into and some I wanted to be. I have battled with my body image and been pressured into looking a

“K”: Boogie woogie with fire (album review)

Posted by Dee-Ann On November - 10 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 640 views

Ohne TitelAt first I thought this was a little bit of an odd album. It’s called “K”. Just a “K” on fire. I must admit I’m a little bit critial and prejudice, just by the look of an album cover. That’s why I think it’s important that I get to review the whole production, and not just the download. But what a surprise it got in store for me! I now understand the firey “K”.

Kyle Esplin is the Scottish artist, who never had a piano lesson in his life, but played fulltime professionally since the age of 16 around the UK, Europe, Canada, USA and onboard luxury cruise-liners. He wrote to me that the recording of this album took place in Germany back in 2012. But due to illness, the release was postponed. Now this year 2014, Kyle is slowly recovering and his album called “K” was released earlier this year and contains 13 songs.

I’m a piano lover, so this album is in good hands and I can immedately tell you, I love it. If you like Jerry Lee Lewis, then you will like this too. Actually, Kyle played at the 65th and 66th birthday parties of this rock and rol legend. Although I the album contains mostly the well known Rock and roll oldies like: Gene Vincent’s Be Bop A Lula, Ray Charles’ Mess Around and Jerry Lee Lewis’ High School Confidential it got me listening to it over and over again. Kyle is an excellent piano player with a strong boogie woogie left hand and a right hand that is faster than my ears can follow, but enough to keep everyting rockin’. That’s what the fire represents I guess.

Is there any rockin’ going on at the Barrel Organ Museum?

Posted by Dee-Ann On November - 5 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 645 views

2014_draaiorgel museum (3)Some people ask me, why are you playing at a museum? I do have to admit that I never thought I ever would nor could I imagine that it would be as crazy as it is at the Barrel Organ Museum in Haarlem, the Netherlands. First of all, the interior is quite unique. I have never seen such gigantic colorful organs, filling up entire walls. I can’t stop looking at them, because there are so much details, little dolls, musical instruments, beautiful woodcarving. The people who work there are eager to tell you everything about the history and working of each organ. I took a peek at the back of the big one behind us. They used to get their music from organ books. Each song has one book which consist of very long strips of carton with holes in it which controled the notes and instruments of entire songs (very long way to explain it, I know). Now they have a digital device containing thousands of songs.

They used to be part of traveling county fairs. Big tents with seats and tables on the side and a wooden dancefloor in front of an organ, being the heart of the county fair back in the days. Way back, before all the pumping bass and screaming electronic music that you hear nowadays.

Antique barrel organs are in this museum and still working, even playing rock and roll songs as loud as your ears can bear.

Scumbash Part II

Posted by Dee-Ann On November - 3 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 667 views

IMG_7500Earlier this year I visited the First Scumbash in Rotterdam The Netherlands. I already wrote about it back then, http://www.rockabilly-online.com/?p=10749.

But now I realize I forgot to tell you about the main event of the whole day. First let me refresh your memory: The men of Schorem, Haarsnijder en Barbier have been in the Dutch media a lot lately, being one of the few vintage styled barbers in The Netherlands. Clients lining up in front of their shop, they don’t mind waiting for one or two hours. Women are not allowed in, dogs are. Men with beards and moustaches everywhere, with the greasy haircut. Even at the university, grocery store, shopping mall. They’ve shot the hype into the mainstream world. Barbers loving the vintage style of the thirties forties and most of all music!
