I’ve been collecting a few links in my bookmarks, so it’s time to unload…
- It’s hard to believe that Throbbing Gristle has never played in NYC before, but it looks like that will change when they play a gig a the Brooklyn Masonic Temple down the street from my apartment in April. One time I was out walking the dog and noticed a lot of people with piercings wearing black clothes with logos bearing pointy fonts wandering around the neighborhood. When I got home I found out that Neurosis and Mastodon were at the Masonic Temple. It doesn’t really get more metal than that.
- Continuing with the Throbbing Gristle theme, along with Drew Daniel’s book on 20 Jazz Funk Greats, I’d like to point you toward this heartbreakingly awesome interview with Genesis P. Orridge from Radar last summer.
- Speaking of heartbreakingly awesome interviews, Sam McPheeters’ feature on Doc Dart of the Crucifucks in the current issue of Vice is a must read.
- The Oxford American‘s recent music issue has a heartbreakingly awesome feature on Elton and Betty White, who come from my hometown of Little Rock. WFMU’s blog also has an audio introduction to them as well.
- And if you want to listen to an audio commentary track of the Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique (and are willing to give your email address to their marketing team), you can get a link here: http://paulsboutique.beastieboys.com/audiocommentary
- This site is kind of amazing:http://www.jacksonpollock.org/ (click your mouse to change colors).
- All of this David Lee Roth stuff can keep a guy entertained for hours…
That’s all I’ve got for now.
