The Rodnik Band is not a traditional fashion label but rather an ironic pop band. Philip Colbert, the British designer behind The Rodnik Band, has created a unique fashion concept, combining aspects of his self composed music, fashion and his love of the Pop Art Movement.

Ryan Riss, aka Craptical, is firmly rooted in the grotesque school of pop art, drawing heavily from horror comics, drug culture imagery, and the work of Ed ‘Big Daddy’ Roth.
