Fred Armisen as the frontman of the only pro-Thatcher punk band

In one of the funnier Saturday Night Live skits of late, longtime SNL staple Fred Armisen plays Ian Rubbish — fictional frontman of the punk band Ian Rubbish & the Bizzarros. It’s pretty clear from the History Of Punk skit that Armisen is a huge fan of the music, as his portrayal of a late […]

The G Unit frontman returns, but does anyone give a shit...?

Let’s face it, 50 Cent has fallen off harder than fat people in slow motion. But every once in awhile, something new comes out and you hope it’ll have a song 1/4th as good as anything off Get Rich Or Die Trying (yeah right). Well now 50 put out a free mixtape of his latest […]

The film of James Murphy saying goodbye and moving on

As everyone knows, LCD Soundsystem puppetmaster James Murphy decided to shut the band down last year, and announced a concert at Madison Square Garden on April 2nd, 2011 to act as their swan song.

Portland’s AgesandAges is a a seven piece allegedly non-cult band that refers to itself as a cult in the interview, so we’re confused. Considering the beautiful acoustic driven indie-folk AgesandAges play, however, we’d gladly spend a weekend in their foresty compound listening to them jam away — even if some dubious Kool-Aid were involved. Clearly […]

Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister finally gets his documentary

We don’t have any more rock stars. Sorry kids, thems the facts. Sure we have plenty of fame-reluctant indie bands floating around, talentless attention-starved pop stars clogging the airwaves, and more than enough material-obsessed rappers to fill the Mall of America, but we don’t have any Rock Stars. You know, guys like David Lee Roth […]

Pulp frontman goes disco in debut video

Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker jumps on Discodeine‘s lead single “Synchronize” from their self-titled debut full-length album (out February 14th on D-I-R-T-Y / Pschent). Comprised of Parisian producers Pentile and Pilooski — the latter who’s best known for his massive re-edits of tracks like Frankie Valli’s “Beggin’” — Discodeine convinced the Britpop legend Jarvis to go […]

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia release their latest branding schwag

Combining two of our favorite things — It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and Kool Keith — it’s the new Dick Towel, this time in “Black”. Who better to sing its praises than the borderline insane, stream-of-consciousness rapping, erstwhile nuthouse-committed former Ultramagnetic MCs frontman? The results are a bit mixed, I’d expect more from the genius […]
