DEATH COMES TO LOS ANGELES -- IN THREES !

posted April 18th, 2014

Sure, LA had a thriving punk scene, and yeah, it involved some death of its very own! But DEATH was actually something bigger than passing through to the next phase for 3 Detroit kids playing guitar, bass, and drums in 1974 - it was a band, with a sound ahead of its time, who finally got the whole world to see them in 2009 with the release of ...For The Whole World To See. But hell, you know the story! You've seen the doc,... (read more)

PUSSWHIP BANGGANG BRING THEIR OWN JAMBALAYA TO YOUR PARTY

posted April 17th, 2014

Pusswhip Banggang first debuted on "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" in 2006. Songs like "Fudge Man," "Kiss Me Once" and "Don't Call Me Uncle" established the group as a leader in swamp rock. They toured in 2010, playing for thousands of fans across the USA. Their first official release is not only a song, but also a recipe for one of the great Naw-Luns dishes: Jambalaya.

The package for the "Jambalaya" 12" is ultra-deluxe: gatefold jacket with reverse-side printing on the... (read more)

OM YEAH!

posted April 15th, 2014

During this season of the ominous Blood Moon, with all it's vibrations and implications, we know: it's tempting for you to hide your fragile mortal selves for a while and avoid whatever intense change the Tetrad has to bring. But dig it, people - you don't have to hide out when you've got a field of low end force surrounding you! OM radiate heavy, heady and ultimately calming tones to help guide us through the cosmos; they reach faithfully toward the skies without fear, knowing... (read more)

"FEEL" A NEW SINGLE FROM TY SEGALL!

posted April 11th, 2014

Ty Segall strikes back! His first new record since Sleeper is a 7-inch single that comes busting out the gate with a whiplash of headbanging licks building up out of a hard-strummed acoustic riff. With lots of room for solos and cosmic lyrics like "feed the freaks in the skies, let them live in each other's eyes," "Feel" is the fist-pumping roller-coaster ride through the fun house that will leave you grinning with rad-itude. "The Fakir" dims the lighs for an acoustic recital, but Ty... (read more)

NEW BUMS WRAP UP USA ON WEST COAST, SET COURSE FOR UK GRAVES TOUR

posted April 9th, 2014

New Bums have just about finished thumbin' around the USA leaving echoes of their dueling guitars and voices all around the finest and ugliest venue circuit this country has to offer. It's a Bums' life, where delicacies of both high and low cultures are to be cherished, like the fellow humans and sub-humans their songs both describe and appeal towards. Now, with the end of the USA leg in plain site (get on it, San Francisco!), these Bums set their sights on Europe, with... (read more)

21ST CENTURY SCHIZOID FORMAT

posted April 4th, 2014

Cassettes are hot, sure, but they're not the heatseekers they once were, back in the days of oh-one-two. No, that crown can now be claimed and reclaimed again by that revolutionary format of the 80s-90s: CDs! It's hilarious to think that this format has been discarded and exiled as an outdated, irrelevant listening tool, considering how the crisp, immaculate sound represents the entirety of the audio spectrum as heard by the artists when recording their albums. Intuitive and empathetic ears will glean much from the... (read more)

SPRING TIME'S A-FAUN-ING

posted April 1st, 2014

Faun Fables are constantly creating - song, sound and of late, kids - and once again, the seams are set to burst! Blossoming with the dewy defrosting of April, Faun Fables assemble their family caravan and head to Joshua Tree before turning back West again to play for the big city folk of Los Angeles, at The Roxy this week. From there, it's onwards and definitely upwards as Dawn & Nils travel North to the wild country of Washington state and all the greenery it... (read more)

SIR RICHARD BISHOP JAMS IT THROUGH CUSTOMS

posted March 27th, 2014

You may not know, and nor do you need to, but Sir Richard Bishop spends lotsa time time in some of the least American places on the planet - the freak's been away from the states for nearly a year! And really, who could blame him? The USA is balls-weird! Thailand, Egypt, Switzerland - these progressive regions are more befitting the man who delivered Polytheistic Fragments and The Freak of Araby. So when we talk about Sir Richard Bishop touring, you can only guess... (read more)

IN SEARCH OF RE-VITIALITY, TY SEGALL SPANS CONTINENTS ON SPRING FEST QUEST

posted March 25th, 2014

Spring time's a time to get out out of doors and breathe the fresh air again - or whatever air you got around you really; it's gotta be a tonic compared to smelling your own damn BO, stale incense and the perfume coming from all those empty bottles in your kitchen for a fourth straight damn month, dude. Among the great outdoor activities, what could be better for the mind and soul than an good old-fashioned rock and roll tour? Leading the movement back to... (read more)
