Hey… it’s podcast #002! Stereo Dynamite’s Adam Sewell talks with our good friend Stu Dead from Toronto-based art / merch company Playdead Cult.
It’s nearly impossible nowadays to imagine the Toronto nightclub, and bar scene devoid of Stu’s iconic Playdead logos. Stu / Playdead’s Gothic, cartoon-ish creations now adorn club walls, restaurant doorways, and back alleys throughout Toronto’s entertainment district – and demand for Stu’s custom artwork is at an all-time high.
Taking place in the backroom of the beautiful new Playdead store at 1696 Queen St. W. (at Roncesvalles) this was a fun discussion about the evolution of the Playdead ‘brand’ from the early days of punk rock / skate wear, to commercial interior design work, and high end art pieces.
