Anything but soft

August 14th is the 33rd birthday of maverick record label Stiff Records.

As I kid I collected pretty much everything Stiff produced. Not just music but their ads and slogans too.

Thinking about it now as a guy sliding into middle age I can't help but noticing how much of an influence Stiff and there modus operandi has had on my career.

Just take a look at these great Stiff slogans and marvel at how good many of them still are after all these years.

But wait...there's more!

fabulous. "upstairs for thinking, downstairs for dancing" is still a commonly used slogan in this neck of the woods, that's for sure.

"if it ain't stiff, it ain't worth a fuck" is now going to be on my epitaph.

You should have waited for the thirty three and a third b'day because as they said "In 78 everyone born in 45 was 33 and a 1/3!"
PS I went around to the Alexander St office/shop a number of times back then~madness, but I did get a poster autographed by Ian Dury with an arrow to his head and he wrote "Never will this become a mental cabinet!" That I wish I still had!
