It's a long weekend here in London - and wouldn't you know it? It's been miserable weather. I can't complain too much - Im happy to be cooking, watching Teen Wolf and reading (currently rereading Chuck Palahniuk's Survivor and last month's Sight & Sound while eating Minstrels). So there isn't much excuse but to do a Hits From The Box...

I want to kick off with a band that isn't actually new to this website, or even a release that is that new. Coming from Belgrade is the shoegaze rock of Vvhile, a two-piece that...

Notice the autograph-- Lester hated the Cramps.

I first met Lester Bangs via the telephone. I was a bored teenager. Growing up in South Florida in the early 70's, there weren't many people who liked the Stooges and the Velvet Underground. I read Creem and Rock Scene and zines like Who Put The Bomp, Back Door Man, Denim Delinquent, The Rock Marketplace, Gulcher, Punk (the original Punk from Buffalo which predated the New York mag by two years). I used to call the Creem offices in Michigan around midnight every couple of weeks. Lester was always there, usually speeding...

1. "We Are the Dead," David Bowie, 1974 I remember hearing this song in the Nineties, when I first moved to L.A. It wouldn't have had the same impact on me if I'd heard it when I was a kid in Ohio — it felt like it was about the culture of Hollywood, the disgusting cannibalism. It was a great inspiration to me on Antichrist Superstar.

2. "Cat People (Putting Out Fire)," David Bowie, 1982 A great song lyrically — very biting, very strong, very powerful....

In the steady campaign surrounding Dreadlords' "Death Angel" debut LP, released at the end of last year via Not Just Religious Music, the collective has issued a new video for its smoldering rendition of The Doors' "Five To One." Check it out below.

The classic original 1968 tune comes ripping back to live through the creepy, gritty Dreadlords style, rife with riotous angst in the...

THE DOORS steadily opened for this psychedelic band that began in 1965 Los Angeles which took its name from the Aldous Huxley's book "THE DOORS of Perception" taken from a William Blake quote. One of the more interesting and unique bands of the 60s, THE DOORS pretty much caught the world by storm beginning with their eponymous album number 1 and pretty much continued to do so until Jim Morrison's early passing at the age of 27 in 1971.

This album was recorded in 1966 and released right in the year of the Flower Child 1967 and didn't initially shoot up...

Doors drummer John Densmore recounted his roller coaster ride through the legal system on the opposite side of the courtroom from his former bandmates in his lively 2013 book “The Doors Unhinged: Jim Morrison’s Legacy Goes on Trial,” and Saturday he’ll be signing copies in Hollywood.

The Mr. Musichead Gallery also will have copies of a Shepard Fairey poster, “Occupy Joe Strummer,” signed by Fairey and Densmore, proceeds from which will go to the Joe Strummer Foundation supporting musicians and projects around the world “that create social mobility through music.”

“The Doors Unhinged” gives an...

PILLARS “WOMAN WITHOUT HER LOVE” VIDEO

Following the release of her second, blissfully electronic outing, ’Woman Without Her Love’, London-based newcomer PILLARS has now unveiled an accompanying video. Shot by Harvey Pearson (Aquilo and Låpsley), the visuals offer up a narrative that perfectly mirrors the slow-burning sophistication of the song. Preparations are now being made for PILLARS’ debut performance, with electronic duo Deafkid (previous live band and production for Ghostpoet) stepping in to create a live show around her recordings.

New single ‘Woman Without Her Love’ is a suitably melancholy affair, drifting in and out of lush, ambient swells as the young...
