Supposedly this will be a ‘fly on the wall’ vantage point with interviews from the band, their producers as well as roadies and music journalists. Basically anyone who had anything to say about these guys get their paragraph

There is no big surprise, FIDLAR stay loyal to the aggressiveness and the irony of the original 1982 song, after all this is a young punk band covering another young punk band (at the time). But I would be more interested to hear some of the other covers by non-punk bands
She also does an amazing cover of ‘Without you’ by David Guetta featuring Usher – yes you read it correctly – and as much as I hate that song, she manages to do something beautiful and soulful from all these non-sense beats
I need to listen to this new album soon, but here are two of the new songs posted on soundcloud, the grinding-violin, slowly expanding, almost medieval-march-sounding ‘So Nice’ and the druggy-state of ‘Lupine Dominus’ with its infectious rhythm haunted by John Dywer’ falsetto.
Their full-length ‘Voyeur’ is out since July 10th and this playful achievement can be streamed in its entirety on soundcloud! Having streamed it once, I can say that the eleven songs are as diverse as they are typical Saint Motel, all of them showcasing their undeniable upbeat and inventive style,
What’s the deal with Wayne Coyne and blood, he keeps splashing his face with fake blood during concerts, he has already printed posters with his own blood, and now this! I am just wondering two things: How come the blood is not coagulating if this comes from several people?
‘I don’t have everybody’s blood just yet, but I collected quite a few vials of blood and it’s actually sitting in my refrigerator as we speak. I’m going to try to take that same concept and put little bits of everybody’s blood in the middle of this record.
Well pad the floor and get the safety harnesses out. Steven Tyler and the boys are about to hit the road and if things go as per usual, some ones gonna be falling off the stage sometime real soon.
These styles included melding live-action photography with animation, 3-dimensional sequences and kaleidoscopic ‘rotoscoping’ where film is traced frame by frame into drawings. The entire process took nearly two years
I mean he has played the weirdest and the most eccentric characters, and he is quite acquainted with the music scene, so it should not come as a surprise that he wants to team up with… Marilyn Manson?
The record marks a return to the piano-bass-drums trio format heard on his classic early records such as the live 11-17-70. What? No more dance crap? Can this be happening?
Wow, looks who's back. All American Rejects are back with their poppy good fun. Although sporting a weird accent the song is contagious and twittery.
Enter the Live at Montreux 2008, a DVD/Blu-ray. Yup, we cant get anything new but we sure as heck can watch five year old footage of a band that will never regroup.
Among the 58 and plus tracks, there will be an exclusive alternate version with vocals of Deerhunter’s Grayscale, debuts or exclusives from Throwing Muses, The Night Marchers, Zoë Keating, Hurry Up, Hungry Ghost, Brute Heart, rarities and live tracks
There are so many great band films (and not so great ones!) but for some reason seeing them really give you the illusion of insight in to the inner workings of rock and roll.
Diamond was on fire performing all of his hits and those he had written. We often forget that Diamond was a songwriter and not the ‘easy listening’ singer.
Thirty five years go by so fast. That is how long it has been since the release of the infamous “Never Mind The Bullocks” album by punk Godfathers The Sex Pistols.
So a spring anything seems odd. What is more odd is that Glamour Kills has offered up a really really good freebie. Figure if you’re going to spend $70.00 on a hoodie with a flying pig some free tunes would be a nice gesture.
‘Unfortunately greed once again rears its yapping head,’ says iconic frontman Lemmy Kilmister. ‘I would advise against it even for the most rabid completists!’
Rihanna was probably already feeling guilty when she did not oppose the restraining order reduction last year, something typical of battered woman, and this was a bad sign. But she should be aware that this new move will not be taken well by the audience
‘There was an inference that I was going through a mid-life crises’ Paul says ‘Which I found really amusing: the clichéd notion of it. And that was the impetus for (the song) even though it isn’t really about that.
The art, well it is generic and nothing really noteworthy. What is noteworthy is that the band sounds fantastic and Manson is a Goddess. Think of how long six years is in the scheme of things. This could very well have been a flop- music can sound so dated and cliché’.
Yup, bringing Bolton to the blog. Anyone see him on Saturday Night Live? The guy is odd but whoa he has a huge list of accomplishments. The singer songwriter has sold 53 million records worldwide.
This is not to say Lydon has lost his mojo- not at all. It is just interesting to hear an all so familiar voice with such obvious distortion. Its as if he should clear his throat or something, a warble in the resonance.
The beginning of any song is comparable to the first time you meet someone; first impressions are everything. However, I implore you to not be taken aback by your first impression of this song. It seems to start off like any other pop rock song but as it progresses, Drake’s passion breaks through the speakers and, trust me, it’ll turn you into a fan.
But is the world ready for more Dexy? I can say with much confidence the US is not. The populace does not have the ear for this sound and unfortunately there are far too many other options, the second coming of DMR will not even score them a hit song.
If you recall a bit ago he was sketching nude Lady Gaga. I gotta say that creeped me out more than I let on. There are some visions that simply make me want to gouge my eyes out with soup ladles and this is sure one of them.
Everything is speeding up. It’s not just our minds shrinking. We are heading towards the Eschaton and no-one really knows what’s going to happen.
For some reason these ‘drone’ bands gather up large masses of Walmart shoppers and get them plucked enough to get an applause and some hits. It could be a government plot- but no one is allowed to talk about it.
Did something more happen with Meg or something? Was it all the black white and red, maybe some odd lab rat sort of thing that just made the dude whack out?
Almost like it was recorded in their garage. Not Dave Grohls garage, oh no no, I mean that retro sounding rock. I cant say I was blown away. I cant say I was impressed
Horrors bring me great joy. They look like The Cramps via Edward Scissorhands and have an incredible cool sound. I’m not the only one to think this either.
Stevie came along to the studio in LA and he listened to the track for about ten minutes and he totally got it. He just went to the mic and within 20 minutes had nailed this dynamite solo
They consider themselves to be a rap crew/art project. Ahh, you can smell the hipster in the air! But I cant even pick on them too much cuz this thing creeped the bejeezuz out of me.
The one minute video definitely says enough to get me really pumped for what they’re working on. It’s fun to watch because it lets us see their personalities. It shows off their silly side
their frontman has such an inflated ego that hehas basically spoiled everything for me. However, if we can pass on Anton Newcombe’s tempestuous character and plain insanity at times, and the factthat he basically has fired his band line-up every year, you still may be interested by the band’s psychedelic-shoegazing rock sound
There hasn’t been new Garbage since 2005, this is fantastic and its really happening! The new album will be released on their new indie label STUNVOLUME. This means nothing to me just hurry and let me hear it!
There are multiple pre-order bundles. The first is just the album, for $10. $16 will get you a tee and the album. There are many more, but as the prices go up, the bundles get better
They drove from LA to Oklahoma during 22 straight hours, and took the risk to ring at Coyne’s door without notice, but they were actually welcomed by the Flaming Lips’ frontman
The way that Anthony’s voice dances on top of the instruments is absolutely incredible and uplifting. It’s almost effortless and puts you on a cloud when you hear it. It shows off his immense talent and it’s wonderful.
This will only be the beginning of a year-long celebration commemorating the 25th anniversary of this release, and, as we had already announced it, there will also be more goodies for die-hard fans,
Glamour Kills is the pimp of bands lately. Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low is just one of the alty pop bands who hangs tight to this clothing merchant. Their high end hoodies make sure that the kids are lookin’ spiffy. Cute graphics for boys ang girls, takes all the pressure off fitting in at shows- its nearly uniform.
It is quite a departure from Sonic Youth’s distorted sound; instead,the gentle upbeat pop-rock song has a catchy melody,… but curiously, after listening to it for several times, some slight Sonic Youth’s riffs magically reappear.
The Stranglers are about to release a new LP and go an a very extensive European tour. The album titled “Giants” is due out on March 12th. I would hope for a US tour but I’m sure it would be brief and select.
I can see how a Nick Cave-Wayne Coyne co-written tune could be an interesting thing to discover, but Bon Iver? He is the antithesisof the Flaming Lips!
Twenty years after the release of Achtung, animation and unseen footage chronicles the bands rise to glory. Glory.
From Queens of The Stoneage to Fiona Apple, 2012 looks to be a great year of the comeback album, here are some personal highlights.
I adore this band you cannot hear a Madness song and be angry. G’head and try it’s instant feel good, throw your shoes off and get dancing fun. No one can duplicate them and no one is dumb enough to try.
It is quite close to The Shins’ typical sound, although the music seems to be escaping the chiming signature sound of their first album, while being bolder and a touch more upbeat than usual
rediscover them now and then, its fascinating to try to figure what ‘x factor’ these classic bands had that got them to immortal status. Tune in to their FB at 5pm UK time (figure the math yourself) and get your groove on.
