GATHER 'ROUND FOR SAVIOR #3

posted June 13th, 2013

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy does it for you and he does it for all....but mostly, he does it for the children! He believes the children are our future - and if you think we're gonna argue with him and a dead r'n'b singer, you're dumber than our marketing department thinks you are! But enough about your bullshit! We've always dreamed of seeing a Muppetized version of our Bonny, though it's arguably more magic seeing the non-puppet original 'Prince' himself performing for a veritable romper room of...

THE SOURCE FAMILY COMETH TO YOUR HOME BOX!

posted June 12th, 2013

It's 2013; have you aligned yourself with a cult yet? If you're savvy enough to time-warp back to the oh, so seductive 70s, you might still be able to join up with Father Yod and his Source Family. The Source Family began as a bearded dude's all-natural health restaurant with yoga lessons in the back and a bunch of hippie kids working there, and soon transformed into so much more - a natural way of being, a gathering place for the wayward young souls,...

WHAT'S POKING YOU? VENOM P. STINGER!

posted June 10th, 2013

Everyone comes from someplace, amiright? Even the filthiest of men are whelped bad-boy babes at the onset. Take the Dirty Three, for instance - two of thems fucks were truly nasty when they burst forth, dripping placenta all over Melbourne circa the mid 1980s. Together, Jim White and Mick Turner were half the freak of nature called Venom P. Stinger in their younger days, grafted together from the best parts of the best bands that town had to offer (sorry, Birthday Party!) - Sick... (read more)

WHAT HAPPENS IN OMAHA...

posted June 6th, 2013

From the back pages of the acclaimed What The Brothers Sang album to the steamy shores of Malta comes the video for "Omaha," directed by media artist, curator and filmmaker Ben Russell, in his first outing ever as a video director. Shoulder to shoulder, with only an ocean between them, Dawn n Bonnie sing of and through the veil of time as the clock runs forward and back, and man returns to the water at the resigned finish. The creepy streets and... (read more)

JJ GOT ART ON DISPLAY!

posted May 31st, 2013

Big news from the BB camp! And since you're in Drag City town, that's Club Black Bananas, babies! No, we're not talking about a new record - there's that Volcom single and the "Rad Times" video featuring Playboy model May Anderson, but other than that, nothing to report from the Banana patch for the rest of 2013 anyway. Shit's still in the LAB, you know? What's out of the lab and leaping for the gallery wall is a bit of artwork from JJ... (read more)

NICE GUYS DON'T WORK IN HOLLYWOOD

posted May 30th, 2013

1940s avant-garde filmmaker and subsequent Hollywood outside-insider Curtis Harrington directed everything from cult-adored horror films like Night Tide, Games and What's the Matter with Helen? as well as beloved 70s-80s TV dross, Charlie's Angels and Dynasty. With a career arc beginning in 1940s, his deeply intuitive and evocative approach to filmmaking were heralded by luminaries of the era like Maya Deren and Kenneth Anger (whose Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome featured Curtis in a starring role). In the 1950s, Curtis worked as... (read more)

The Lost Chapters of THE DRAG CITY NEWSLETTER MAY 2013!!!!!

posted May 29th, 2013

The following items were found to be missing shortly after the Drag City May Newsletter went live on Friday night. These two sections were a part of a larger vision of America that the Newsletter was meant to convey. If you read it and didn't feel one way or another about America, it's probably because these two chapter were missing. Don't blame the chapters for not making the final cut. It's not their fault that they were cut-and-not-pasted in the desperate final moments of editorial... (read more)

TAKE IN SOME OPEN AIR WITH BLUES CONTROL

posted May 28th, 2013

Blues Control released Valley Tangents nearly a year gone by, during the summer of our end-of-times, 2012. Luckily for all, the end-of-times proved to be a new age of enlightenment more than anything, with Blues Control at the forefront, extending the meadows of their Valley Tangents with no signs of straying into slate, porous rock, ocean or mountain. Valley Tangents provide lush and lively excursions for all who graze on its grasses, and recent torrential downpours yield a fresh new organism on which to feast... (read more)
