Short sleeves and dresses

The calendar says it's spring but it feels a lot like summer. Stay cool and enjoy the sunshine in a short sleeved shirt from Red Kap or a raglan tee from Sailor Jerry.


And it's finally warm enough to wear pretty dresses like this brand new grey number from Sailor Jerry. Pair it with a cardigan and you can even wear it in the office.

Rat Rod Rockers!

Car chases, drag racing, kidnappings and shootouts - all with a dark sense of humor. Rat Rod Rockers! has it all.

Rat Rod Rockers! is the second feature film by D.A. Sebasstian and the second in the Anywhere Archives Series. Shot entirely in the Northwest, Sebasstian's new film is not a sequel to his previous Hot Rod Girls Save The World, but does take place in the same fictitious town of Anywhere, Washington.

Three Men and a Skateboard

Here is a little story I like to call "three men and a skateboard" or "how to get two shelves out of the shop in time for record store day".

Don't try this at home unless you have a sturdy 1980s skateboard and at least two friends to help you.
Moving it outside.


Steady! Note the wheels.


Making a turn.


It's like some sort of dance.


How serious are we about making the shop look fabulous for tomorrow? Very serious. Rob even cleaned behind the chainsaw.

Scrub-a-dub-a-dubbing!


Record Store Day

It includes tips for hosting a bbq for everyone from the president of the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club* to the rockabilly girl next door.

The book is in Swedish.

The new jeans shop

Now we have built in a couple weeks and the result was fantastic. Both the new denim department, shirt department, shoe department and cap shelves was fantastic. Check out the pictures or come into the store and see for yourself. Grab a cup of coffee, try a shirt or let us pick up your new jeans.






Carling Family in Smålänningen

It's one of the blurriest photos known to man, but trust me when I say that it's a write up of the Carling Family's gig in Markaryd.

I found this in my grandmother's local newspaper. Smålänningen doesn't put any news online, so the blur is all I got.
You'll find the Carling Family's music in the HepCat Store.

Smålänningen, 8 April , 2011.

Record Store Day 16 april

April 16, Sweden’s record shops get together and participate in the annual international Record Store Day. The aim is to focus on the unique breadth and depth, in both knowledge and product range, which is shared by all enthusiastic record dealers around the country and to celebrate the love of music. There will be live performances, record signings, and selected products at special prices throughout the week. Record Store Day began in 2008 with that Metallica did a live appearance in the record store Rasputin Music in San Francisco.

Along with Record Heaven and HepTown Records the HepCat Store will pick up hot vinyl records and CDs and other exciting music things to show that the record market are not stalled completely but flourishes in circles of music lovers and musicians.

Live in the store will be The Men (including members from Sinners, Girls, Colubrids, Thee Expression and Varanteatern), together with Zerox (including members from Sinners, Langhorns and Rädsla). So, wants to see that there is a strong cultural life in Lund, this is proof that it simmers in the underworld and it still kicks up!

At the same day Hepcat will release some Pop Stad Lund merchandise, including a T-shirt for upcoming exhibition at Kulturen in Lund, Sweden which takes place in the autumn – “25 år som förändrade en stad – och om alla oss som förändrades med den”. It will be neat, nice and well-packaged.

The Men is celebrating their 10 years anniversary and has so far released three albums and several singles. The band played two gigs in Australia last January. The band’s third album ‘Four Good Men and True “was released in March 2010 by Heptown Records, the record company is housed in the same house as HepCat shop. The Men, Sven Köhler, vocals & harmonica (formerly The Sinners) Ola Främby, bass (formerly The Girls) Olof Wallberg, guitar (former Colubrids, Varanteatern) Niklas Kilenstam, drums (ex-Thee Expression).

Zerox is the pick of a large part of Lund’s music scene, serving 77-punk, new wave & power pop for the enlightened elect of the sages. With over 100 years experience in delivering the four lads will give an intense and raw rock show. You may have heard of Sinners, Langhorns and Rädsla? In Zerox you get a good bit of them all…

Nordic Tattooing

Nordic Tattooing is a new historical book of tattooing from Nordstroms Forlag by writer and photographer Jon Nordstrøm, the publisher of the hotly debated and highly acclaimed Danish Tattooing.


Nordic Tattooing provides an interesting look into the development of tattooing in the Nordic countries between 1885 and 1985. The Swedish tattooists, who were sailors and tattooed Norwegians, and the Danish tattooists who gathered in Nyhavn and tattooed drunk Swedes are all in the book. The book is full of large photos, befitting a true coffee table book.
