On Vacation

A Saint 21 hoodie spotted in Gran Canaria a few weeks ago. It looks as good next to palm trees and it does in the garage.

We're moving things around

As we're developing Saint 21 into a brand - of clothing, pomade and other cool stuff - this blog will change in the coming weeks.

We've started a new blog, a HepCat Store blog, where you'll find news from the shop, upcoming gigs and cool things that happen. Basically, whatever you used to find here is now found at hepcatstore.blogspot.com. We hope to see you there!

J.Tex and bass player Frank Borg are playing at Klubb Peyote in Malmö tomorrow night. Klubb Peyote moves from venue to venue and tomorrow night it's at Metro.

We'll be there. Will you?

Fancy new music section

Have you seen our swanky new music section? It's all organised and there's ever room for DVDs!

So much to choose from...


We've got vinyl too; 7", 10" and 12".


Need to stock up on pomade? Drop by the shop because we've got a lot of good stuff in stock. We just got a big box of Pusher and there's plenty of Kustom Kutting and Levins.

That's a lot of grease.

The Troubled Three live at HepCat Store

The Troubled Three are giving a free concert at the HepCat Store this Saturday. The HepCat Store is open between 11 and 16, The Troubled Three will play around 13.

About the band: Three vigilantes from up north have teamed up to perform the best music ever written and combine it with the most astonishing live shows you'll ever see...
Most songs fall in the category of rhythm & blues, rock'n'roll and western swing. Legendary songs from the forties are mixed with some original material and a hell of an attitude on stage.
Do not miss this fresh act!

Greasy Kulture #17

Another great issue has landed at our shop in Lund. Get it at the HepCat Store!

Introducing: Saint 21

Saint 21 isn't just our house anymore. It's our new label. We've just opened the first boxes of tees, trucker caps and hoodies and we're stoked. Check 'em out at the HepCat Store!

Do you miss our Saint 21 pomade? Well this is the time to get your hopes up! The new and improved Saint 21 pomade is being created in a mysterious place in the Swedish woods, among bikes, pine trees and skateboards.
And there's even something for the ladies...

Skull Skool Royal

Antoine Bernhart gained international recognition in the early 1980s for his black-and-white drawings, which appeared on record covers, flyers, posters and fanzines for bands such as The Meteors, The Sting Rays, The Cramps and Billy Childish’s Milkshakes. A selection of these early works have achieved cult status.

Warning: Some of the graphic material in this book might hurt viewers’ sensibilities and is not suited for children and adolescents.

The braces come in two colors, white/blue and brown.

Getting reday for the winter season?

Summer is gone and so is the Swedish hot rod/kustom/bike season. Fall is the beginning of projects in the garage, dreaming of better weather and planning for next summer.

But some crazy riders are getting ready for winter and ice racing. Check out "Icy Riders".



For three years, documentary filmmaker Bengt Löfgren, followed the riders, mechanics and fans in the glorious world of Ice Speedway. Icy Riders is a film about dreams, ambition and aging during what might become the last season of the legendary ice speedway rider Posa Serenius.

Get it at the HepCat Store!
