Arthur Smilios

New York

Wednesday 10th May 2017

Name, where are you from?
Arthur Smilios, born and raised (and most likely going to die) in New York City.

What do you do?
I am the manager of the New York Wooster shop and bassist for Gorilla Biscuits.

Describe your style in three words:
Retro Modern Dandy.

Which music defines the teenage you?
British Punk, especially The Clash. Joe taught me about politics and Paul was the standard of cool.

What new music/bands are you listening to?
Dead Heavens, a local NYC band who is destined for great things; Youth Code, from Los Angeles; Leon Bridges. Sharp Shock, out of LA. They are composed of a Brit, New Zealander, and an American, so they reflect the cosmopolitan nature of Mod. They remind me of The Jam—especially Davey’s vocals.
