We know how much of a pain in the pisser that weird limbo time between Christmas and New Year can be. You’re too fat to go outside, holding back too much to get super piss drunk, and generally too lazy to do fuck all. That’s why, with the help of FRONT, your life just got that little bit more brilliant. As you can see from the ground-breaking cover, we’ve brought together two of the sexiest, inkiest girls around for a one-off shoot that’s going to set the world on fire. Check below for a peek at that shoot, as well as four other kick-ass reasons you need FRONT issue 164 in your life today:
ALYSHA NETT x ARABELLA DRUMMOND: THE GREATEST COLLABORATION IN THE WORLD?
We think we’ve gone and done something incredible here. Alysha Nett, all the way from sunny Philadelphia, and Arabella, all the way from the almost as sunny Kent, have joined forces to a hail of tattoos, nakedness and general fucking awesomeness to create the partnership of the year. Hell, it’s the partnership of the last fifty sqillion years. Even better than bangers and mash. THAT GOOD.
A DAY TO REMEMBER AND THEIR MONSTER YEAR
Just before they were called MTV’s Breakthrough Band of 2011, we grabbed the massive A Day To Remember to find out why, even though last year was a pretty good one, twenty twelve is the year they take over the universe. Also, they talk about a kid that did a poo in the audience. And not wearing underwear. Amazing.
CALA: YOUR NEW YEAR OBSESSION
You fine readers spoke, and holy shit, did we stand up a listen to you. Back in September we introduced you to Cala with her online Alt Girl gallery (see it here), and the response was enormous. You fucking loved her. Like, luuurved her. Clearly, we needed more of her and here she is. Enjoy.
RETOX THE YOUNG GUNS WAY
New Year’s party? Good. New Year’s dieting? Nah, you’re alright. Next year, we’ve decided, is the year of recklessness, drunkeness and all-round brillance, so make it happen by taking notes from our list of the top insane rockstar moments in history. There’s exploding toilets, turds in hairdryers, chicken dinners as weapons and acid-spiked cider. Good stuff.
ANDREW REYNOLDS: AN INTERVIEW WITH SKATE ROYALTY
When Andrew Reynolds isn’t rolling around Venice Beach in our version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2, ‘The Boss’ is juggling kids, his band, his job at Altamont, being the head honcho at Baker and stopping his new pet puppy from jumping all over his sofa. We talk all that, as well as unstable orangutans and underwhelming goats with the tenth most influential skater ever, according to Transworld Skateboarding.
Getting interrupted by Nikki Sixx while talking to Tommy Lee, a super-bendy Sabine, mixtapes Lamb Of God, dead dinosaurs, really powerful magic with your thumbs, tattoos and underpants with The James Cleaver Quintet and how to become super rich the easy way.
