Miscellany Style Tips By Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist
INTERVIEW & PHOTOGRAPHY: SARAH J. EDWARDS
ART DIRECTION: SALLY A. EDWARDS
STYLING: THE HIVES
LOCATION: SHEPHERD’S BUSH, LONDON
In conversation with Sarah J. Edwards, The Hives humorously recount stories from the recording studios they journeyed and experienced across the globe to make The Black and White album. From moving floors, armed guards and parking lot beefs, to screaming, foot stomping, wrestling stars and stage etiquette, there’s never a dull moment.
The original story was first published in BLAG Vol. 2 Nø 9 print edition in 2008. Read an exclusive excerpt here
HOWLIN' PELLE ALMQVIST'S STYLE TIPS & MISCELLANY QUESTIONS
"Pick up some flowers for your special someone for their birthday. It’s class. If you are away on tour with your famous rock band. Send a delivery."
Sarah: Please pick three situations where style is of the utmost importance and offer your advice - can be dos and don’ts.
Howlin' Pelle: One, when going to a wedding make sure you don’t wear something that is more attention grabbing then the couple getting married. That is rude. Two, do pick up some flowers for your special someone for their birthday. It’s class. If you are away on tour with your famous rock band. Send a delivery. Three, don't drink and drive.
Sarah: You're very well known to be open-minded about music, please can you give us a playlist of five songs you think shouldn't be missed – one’s that you wish were songs by The Hives.
Howlin' Pelle: Well. Lets see: ‘Blank Generation’ by Richard Hell, ‘Sharp Dressed Man’ by ZZ Top, ‘Bangkok’ by Alex Chilton, ‘Seven Nation Army’ by the White Stripes ‘Mainline’ by Zeke. That should do it.”
