These guys party bad! check out the documentary they just released 'Justice A Cross The Universe'. It was filmed during the North American leg of the bands latest tour and jeeezoouus they are a modern day version of The Stones. Highlights involve a vegas wedding, bottling fans, getting arrested on weapons charges and taking groupie's back to the tour van every few minutes. A few chunks have been released on Youtube.


Above is MGMT's current myspace default. The band has been blogged to death but here's a couple of surftastic remixes to get busy with.

Over the Gold Coast summer blues of beaches swarming with bikini ridden gals and literally no swell. Dion has posted up in da US of A for the winter. Apparently he is training for a Mavericks swell and enjoying the company of American females. You can follow his adventures at his blog
A cool way to welcome a surfer to the team is cast them as a seminal psychedelic drug infused Hunter S. Thompson. The Fear and Loathing spin off is not too far from the fruit bowling Yadin of surfing past. He is a civilized citizen these days and surfing better than ever. The intro of this clips is really well done pity the surf footage is blown out....

Dane's B & W french roll

Monday, December 8, 2008

The Future isn't what the future used to be. Today a vast pool of youth are taking the possibilities of surfing into a new era. Gone are the days of punting an air reverse straight into the piggy bank. Unless its a full rotation, a tweaked grab or a god darn flip its not going to see the light of day. With poise and flair D Payne ditches his way past the talented field and receives the final invite for Modern Collective. Its not only his free surfing that caught the eye of the beholder. He just won his first contest in 8 years! bagging the Oakley Pro Junior and is currently in the lead for the Vans Triple Crown heading into Pipe. So hot right now... 
Welcome to the collective Dusty


Check this site purienne for some cool photography and aaahh some really hot girls... mainly the girls.

This guy is all time!

While locked away in the editing bay we have been listening to the sounds of CFCF. The mellow blend of psychedelic electro can be heard on their myspace

As the surfing beast takes over a small stretch of beach for the Hawaiian winter Modern Collective has been tucked away plotting our next trip. We took a peep at the stab blog for some hawaiian goss and was peeved to hear our collective foe Yadin missed out on CT qualification by one heat... oouch! bad luck Yades. 
Mr Nicol will have his free surfing boots on and bags packed ready for orbit next month.
