Everyone knows that there is nothing more metal than pop music, except absolutely everything. And that is what is so effing metal about these pop acts given the heavy metal treatment. Rumored to have been designed by some dude named David Ward, it’s actually pretty damned hard to find an online store for them. That’s […]

Nothing beats the visceral satisfaction of finding music classics on vinyl at the local swap meet. Or better yet, swiping classic rock records from Dad’s forgotten collection. But there has to be something said about getting those old jams freshly remastered onto brand new, fresh-off-the-press wax. In that case, you’ll be happy to hear about Led Zeppelin remastered boxed […]

Imagine Claude VonStroke’s 2009 track “MonsterIsland” as the soundtrack blasting in a transformative yet alien environment you’re appearing in for the first time. You’d be about 10 times more stoked to be there. Hit the fast forward button to 2015, and VonStroke & Co’s Dirtybird record label is now 10 years old all grown up from its humble beginnings in San Francisco’s Lower […]

Now that fifty years have passed […]

Man up and have some balls with the Hello Kitty Headphones from Beats by Dr. Dre. Because with this being Hello Kitty’s 40th anniversary, your balls might just be the only thing out there which haven’t had the the HK license slapped on them yet. Yet. But fear not, with Hello Kitty being plastered across […]

To call the Rolling Stones a band who made an impact on global pop culture would be an understatement if there if ever there were one. With their own personal history spanning literally more than half a century, these key figures in the history of rock ‘n roll specifically played a huge part in the crucial music period […]

Rumpshaker Records produces this first in a new series of mix sets from friends of the bass and breaks-driven label. It’s no secret we love our breaks here at LIAS, so we welcome this Rumpshaker Friendcast mix series with open arms… hands up, thumbs down, naturally. First up is Eddie Light, who Rumpshaker describe as “one of the USA’s […]
