Strikes me catching these guys live is a thing that must be done in the next year. Stark industrial electronica in a similar vein to Haxan Cloak but not quite so spare or intense.
Wow, fucking LOVING this. Hammerhands covering two songs released in 1995. If this aint the very definition of gnarly as fuck I dunno what is.
The two songs? Smashing Pumpkins’ ‘XYU’ and PJ Harvey’s ‘To Bring You My Love’, respectively.
Awwwwwwwl riiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Holy ‘crushing the living shit out of two songs you thought you knew quite well but turns out you don’t’, Batman. etc etc etc.
This was single of the day yesterday (or some time anyway) on Everett True’s website Collapse Board. He, in turn, swiped it from The Vine.
‘Shark Week’ – the latest track from Brooklyn trio, Hand Job Academy – is a rap about women and their periods. It is 3 minutes and 47 seconds of hip hop hilarity featuring a human biology lesson bridge and rhymes featuring the words “masturbate” and “Sharon Tate”. The MCs also drop the word “Kotex” in similar ways the likes of Jay-Z and co use luxury brands and Champagne shout outs in their ditties.
Youtube, being the women fearing douche’s that they are banned the video. Considering the amount of hate filled sexist shite you can find there that should be surprising. Of course, though, it’s not. So until Vimeo chicken out and pull it too share this fucker as far and as wide as you possibly can.
" It’s not just about periods. It’s about owning your period." Uh huh.
Crossover metal hardcore metal thrash metal band Forsaken set this beast free a couple of weeks ago. Predictably it rips.
Wanna check out the whole EP? Hie thee hither then.
Still a bit gutted I couldn’t get to either Rival Mob / Mind Eraser shows last week but someone set up a two camera rig for the Sheffield gig and grabbed both sets in full. Fucking A. Rival Mob above, Mind Eraser below.
Totally unlike being there of course but still pretty sick all the same.
Went all the way to Cardiff on Saturday ostensibly for Sŵn Festival but also, y’know, coz clipping. were playing. Had a decent time all round and saw some great bands (This Is Wreckage probably being the highlight although Summer Ghost were pretty rad too as was Nadine Shah) but frankly clipping. wiped the floor with them all. Still can’t believe the buggers got me waving my hand in the air. I never wave my hands in the air. They were everything I was expecting from them x ten. Sadly they clashed with about 8 other shows I wanted to see (and therefore I guess a lot of other people) but they still played to a packed room (which must’ve had a 300-400 capacity) and I’ll warrant they totally made some new fans while there.
Incredible job - introduced myself afterwards and am pretty fucking convinced they had no idea who the feck I was but that’s par for the course. I guess I must have some enunciating prollems when it comes to shouting “Louder Than War” in peoples faces”
There’s a review of the whole day up at Louder Than War which includes pertinent bits a good paragraph about clipping. Fuck off HERE (and scroll 2/3rds of the way down to find the pertinent bit) if you wanna read.
The above by Banksy (of course), part of his “better out than in” artists residency in the streets of New Yoik.
The video’s the killer as you can hear the squeaks & bleats the animals are making, but the best is left to last - check out the expression on the babies face. Heartbreaking.
CLIPPING TOUR STARTS TODAY! CHECK OUT THE NEW TOUR TRAILER!

I’ll be at Cardiff on Saturday, bitches. Who else down?
This is the first episode of our new online series ‘Record Selection’. We give artists $50 to spend at a record store and talk us through their purchases.
On this episode we have Jeremy from Touche Amore. Not only does Jeremy work at a record store but he also has one of the largest collections on vinyl I know, so I knew he would be perfect to start off this series.
Let us know what you thought - comment, tweet and reblog your opinions, we always appreciate your feedback.
Because I love a record geek out
It’s all go with films about bands in Bristol atm. First off we have Instrument, un film de Jem Cohen about Fugazi coming up on Sunday and now I find out the above, Filmage – The Story Of Descendents / All, will be screening at The Exchange on 19th Nov.
They sold out ⅓ of the tickets on the first day so shoot while the iron’s hot if you want in. Get tix HERE.
Can’t. Stop. Playing. This.
King Nine’s debut full length, Scared to Death, is due to drop on November 12th. Released by Mass Movement Records I just need to find out who’s doing press for it now…
Did the tradional Westonbirt in Ottim time trip last week. Bit too early to catch it in it’s full gloire but still pretty splendid.
Still a bit full of disbelief at how few people came along to see these guys play the Exchange the other day. Not even sure if, like Black Pus the day before, we can blame the paltry attendance at the door of the Brisfest which it clashed with. Didn’t stop em putting in a fucking A performance anyway. They’ve just announced a bunch of dates & you should go if possible.
