VIDEO PREMIERE: BROKEN LAMPS “RED LIGHT DRIVE”

March 9th, 2020

Eric Bowr's Broken Lamps make soundtracks for movies that never existed and L.A.'s Rendezvous screens movies most people don't know ever existed—so you can see why putting these two things in the same dimly lit room makes for one of the best Friday the 13th outings out there.

VIDEO PREMIERE: BIG DEBBIE “ELECTRIC WATER”

March 5th, 2020

Big Debbie likes to look for the very edge of things, whether during a childhood in the U.S.S.R. absorbing banned new wave music or seeking artistic revelation in punk and noise music in the Bay Area before Big Tech's wrecking spree. New video "Electric Water"—two things you mix together if you want to get a shock—is right on the line where Suicide and John Carpenter meet. (Something astronomers might call the terminator—fitting?)

TRACK PREMIERE: RICHARD ROSE “RED TELEPHONE”

March 4th, 2020

"Red Telephone"—not at all the excellent and lately all-too-relevant Love song, although it might share a little of that edge-of-the-end-of-the-world spirit—opens Richard Rose's coming LP on In The Red, following last year's self-titled EP. It's on fire from the first instant with a 197X Detroit-derived rock sound one generation removed from slash-and-burn guitar antiheroes Ron Asheton and Fred "Sonic" Smith.

VIDEO PREMIERE: TONY “MY NAME IS TONY”

February 28th, 2020

It's almost 11 AM so it's probably time to behold the sum total of one man's existence in just under five minutes. Good thing Tony (Infante, also of the Squids, Crystales, this collab with another notable local Tony) is here with his solo-est of solo projects Tony and a homemade video that displays his life from the moment he was born (sourced from VHS) to ... well, to the minute he finished filming the video. Tony will be performing with Tony on Sunday at Gold Diggers with Babies on Acid and the Memories plus DJs Dreamgirl and Colleen Greentix here!

VIDEO PREMIERE: HAMMERED SATIN “PLANET BOOGIE”

February 26th, 2020

"Planet Boogie" is Hammered Satin's enthusiastic salute to the spirit of T. Rex, whose Marc Bolan loved stars and Mars as much as he loved to boogie, visualized with some dizzy 70s-late-night-cable prism effects in this video filmed and edited by longtime Satin associate Logan Feser, with additional filming by Ant Boyd. That's a cheerfully delirious representation of the Hammered Satin experience—now augmented by Don Bolles (of the Germs / Ariel Pink / and prior glamifiers Fancy Space People) on genre-perfect guitar as well as drummer Victor Penalosa, late of the Flamin' Groovies.
