BugBrand review

Post by a100user » Tue Jun 01, 2021 2:34 pm

Was asked to do a short rundown of the BugBrand system by my local modular group.

Ghastly video quality and jerky handheld camera work plus there is constant click in the background. some of the info may not be 100% correct but thought I’d share it here so folks can correct any of my assumptions.

I'm looking for nothing at this moment in time

Enjoyed that a100, thanks you.

Tom do you have any of those yellow bugs t-shirts knocking about I would love one ? If not any chance of a Re- run, if they aren’t still available please?

Thanks for the supportive words, especially because of the lack of production value.

I really enjoyed watching that. Very interesting with the general brand history, your experience with the old blue system, and the information about each individual module. I was really happy to see that Batchas’s Scrotum Labs modules were mentioned as they are such important members of the BugBrand extended family.
All in all a great video that’s informative and fun to watch.


That yellow t-shirt also caught my eye. If shirts with that graphic were to ever become available again I would for sure order one and wear it with pride.

I love the design still but it was a 4 or 5 colour print, I think - ended up thick & heavy & a bit costly! TShirt selling never really worked for me..

That’s understandable. Printing up a batch of shirts to sell is definitely a pain and costly due to having to order the different sizes. Plus inevitably getting stuck with most of the smallest or largest size.

Was the shirt this design? Pardon the shit quality, but the sticker is beneath the protective shell of my MacBook.

Love the design. Too bad I missed it! I don’t know if it was intentional, but it reminds me of the Bad Brains logo.

@a100user Hi David, really enjoyed this video & the insight into some of the old blue modules & their designs!
Takes me back to the first Brighton modular meet and you bringing your bug system along, you can be partly responsible for my eventual bug-craze I have :-)

Thank you and I hope you are still taking those amazing photographs too?
