Band

  • Glenn Danzig

    Most performers have to span a gap between their public image and their private life, but Glenn Danzig has to jump between two distinct public versions of himself. Think of the disconnect between the cheesy camp of his Mother video and the lurid power...

  • We Have The Internet And Planes

    There's a commonly held belief that Tasmania is a barren landscape. That it's devoid of culture, suitable only for heathen farmhands and sibling fornicators. Hobart's Native Cats play straight forward trance-inducing pop that pretty much shatters this...

  • Brix Smith

    In the 1980s, Brix Smith was best known as a guitarist in The Fall, and as the wife of its frontman Mark E. Smith, whom she divorced. Brix was one of very few women in British indie at a time when it was still any good. She brought fashion and glamour...

  • We Want War

    Matthew Stone is an artist who was a founder of the south London !WOWOW! collective and has exhibited his work internationally. He is much loved by a fashion world which he has always shied away from, preferring his work to stand alone and speak for...

  • Artful Meanderings

    Jane Badler is easily best known for her role as Diana in the 80s sci-fi series, V, where she played a villainous alien lizard posing on earth as a friendly, stunning-looking human. The specific scene she's best remembered for is one in which she...

  • Dicksplosion!

  • Lock Up Your Mothers!

    Black Wizard are four hard-rocking nippers from the Canadian town of New Westminister. They remind me of the metal version of New Kids On The Block. I imagine Mattel capitalising on collectible Black Wizard dolls pretty soon. The music speaks for...

  • Synthesisers In The Rain

    Every so often, Scandinavia produces a group who seem to exist in a world of their own, but whose music welcomes you in like an old friend. Röyksopp had that quality, so too, rather more sadistically, do The Knife. And now, from the land of ski-jumping...

  • Sonic Titans From Beyond

    Between them, the four members of Shrinebuilder have served in Sleep, OM, Neurosis, the Melvins, the Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, and the Hidden Hand. Oh, and Saint Vitus. If you’re not familiar with these names then you could be reading the wrong...

  • My Big Sister, Who Sang For A Hardcore Band In the 90s

    New Jersey-based hardcore band Fast Times was around during the mid-90s and my sister Alison was the singer.

  • Charles Maggio From Rorschach

    We thought it might be interesting to talk to Charles Maggio, head yeller of seminal hardcore punks Rorschach, since, you know, their brutal melding of hardcore and metal pretty much altered the trajectory of punk music in America and all that jazz.
