A limited edition timepiece crafted for Heisenberg himself

As part of the consistently gangsta Breaking Gifs project, Vannen Watches and artist/toy designer Tristan Eaton have teamed up to create the first ever time piece of the Breaking Bad-themed campaign. The piece is inspired by the season 3 bottle episode “Fly,” which was almost entirely contained in the methlab. The watch looks exactly like […]

You Can't Be a Half Gangster.

There’s been a lot of talk lately centering around the Best Shows on TV. And while Mad Men and Breaking Bad get their much due respect (as well as deceased seminal titles like The Wire and Sopranos), I always marvel at how little attention Boardwalk Empire and Game Of Thrones get in the discussion. Both […]

Rare footage behind the magic of Joe Strummer & Mick Jones

How much do we love The Clash? Enough to name our entire project after them, duh. Having taken in many of the best documentaries on the legendary British band, we’re always stoked when a new doc, book, comic, biopic, cartoon, porn, fanzine, Tweet, pamphlet or whatever is released. Such is the case with The Rise […]

Acclaimed musician, humanitarian, activist, Beastie Boy & intrepid fighter for your right to party

We’d be remiss if we didn’t take a moment out to give thanks to Adam Yauch for all he’s given us over the years. There are few bands who I defend as strongly as the Beastie Boys — a group who has not one or two but three albums in the Madman’s Best 100 Albums […]


I’m pretty sure Madonna wasn’t the first to inflame the Catholics with her rosary imagery and “Like A Prayer” video, but she sure made it mainstream. After Nicki Minaj’s headscratching (and rather uncreative) performance in this week’s Grammy’s, Kate Moss takes a similar roll in what the Catholic League will surely find hilarious. Whether panty-flashing […]


Romain Gavras and M.I.A. have done it again. Following up their highly controversial “Born Free” video collaboration, the director brings the pop star to Morocco for a video with almost as big a scope as their last. Clearly inspired by world of Arab car hooning, Gavras brings some stunning and beautiful imagery to what I’m […]

Intergalactic EDM grooves from ex-Bad Company stalwart

Erstwhile Bad Company member dBridge drops the second Podcast for Convex Industries. While once known for exacting much drum & bass nastiness, dBridge’s sound has moved on to more subtle, relaxed sounds. It’s hard to pin the mix down genere-wise, but suffice to say the Exit Records honcho — known to his mum as Darren […]

First single from upcoming 4th full length album

2011 may have been a quiet year for Maya Arulpragasam, but the world pop star M.I.A. is looking to rebound in 2012 and make up for her 3rd album, /\/\ /\ Y /\, which was critically panned by many but beloved here at LIAS headquarters. Her first move is to release a single lifted from the […]
