Our old friend, psychedelic artist ANTHONY AUSGANG has been keeping a pretty low profile in recent years, so it was music to our ears when electro rockers MGMT released the cover art for the upcoming album, "Congratulations" featuring the ever trippy imagery of AA. The LP drops March 13th, it's just too bad you won't be getting a nice 12" cover with this art on it to stare at...

FILM///”WHEN YOU’RE STRANGE (A FILM ABOUT THE DOORS)” NARRATED BY JOHNNY DEPP

February 12, 2010  |  Film, LA, Music, News  |  Comments Off

Our friends in THE DOORS camp have finally put together a proper cinematic tribute to LA's most important rock band. The film, narrated by JOHNNY DEPP, is a time capsule, composed entirely of footage shot between the group’s formation in 1965 and frontman Jim Morrison’s death in 1971. Director TOM DiCILLO's revealing documentary is a treasure trove of live performances, TV appearances, home movies, studio footage, and a never-before-seen independent film made called "HWY" by and starring Morrison. The movie will make its US theatrical debut at this summer's LA FILM FEST, June 18–28.

MUSIC///SOUTH AFRICA///DIE ANTWOORD BRING CAPE HOOD “ZEF RAP” TO THE WORLD

February 11, 2010  |  Music, News, WTF???  |  Comments Off

If Borat went to Napoleon Dynamite's high school and did Vanilla Ice covers in the talent show backed by Spank Rock's production crew, you're starting to approach understanding the M.O. of the amazingly weird South African "Zef" rap trio DIE ANTWOORD ("The Answer"). Comprised of Capetown rappers Ninja, Yo-Landi Vi$$er, and DJ Hi-Tek (along with a revolving cast of skid row homies like their Gollum-esque sidekick), the trio's inimitable brand of dirty, cracker-ass, Afrikaner Hip-Hop literally must be seen to be believed:

ROCK OF AGES///DAMIEN HIRST ART DIRECTS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR THE HOURS

December 10, 2008  |  Damien Hirst, Music, News, Video  |  Comments Off

In THE HOURS’ new video for "See the Light," Hollywood danger girl SIENNA MILLER dons a hospital gown, gets trapped in a glass case in a bag shop, smokes, talks about suicide, cries a lot, undergoes an MRI scan, and smears herself in cow's blood in front of four eviscerated, wall-mounted bovine carcasses. If this last image brings to mind DAMIEN HIRST, that's no accident. Hirst, a friend of the band, was art director on the video, made by "American History X" director TONY KAYE. The Hours' singer, Antony Genn, has found a good friend in Hirst—the artist not only contributed artwork to their first record, 2001's "Narcissus Road," and to their forthcoming EP, also titled "See the Light," but has founded a record label, IS GOOD, to promote their music.
