Iron Will

Grime's new book 'Iron Will' was released at the tattoo convention in SF last weekend. A huge mind-blowing tome, showcasing one of the best tattooists of all time.... sick.

ABH - Don't Mess With The SAS

I love when old bands made videos.... who the fuck got this sorted... this band were a total B list. Vid is sick....


while on the subject of hot metal birds... Doro Pesch from Warlock was the ultimate. The band sucked....but she was smokingggg

Madam X

Fuck. Another trip down memory lane. This band were the worst, but me and my brother LOVED this LP! hahaha.... we thought the guitarist and drummer were kinda hot..... thats from the same people who thought Beki Bondage was hot....ahh to be 11 again!!

Warfare - Pure Filth

Along with the Exodus LP I also got the 1t warfare LP, another fave of mine back in the day. From round the corner from Venom, this lot were a bit more punk than Venom, but a similar deal. Skint as fuck, as these 2 videos attest. Wish I could find their sick cover of 'Addicted To Love' retitled 'Addicted To Drugs'.

you can download it here

Teach You A Lesson In Violence...

after 20 odd years I finally picked up Exodus 'Bonded By Blood' on vinyl. Such a sick record. This is my fave track....
'I'll teach you a lesson in violence you won't soon forget
The pleasure of watching you die is what I will get'.....

Muph and Plutonic

More Oz hiphop...

MUPH & PLUTONIC "day off" remix from Joske Films on Vimeo.

Fresh and Onlys

Bit late to the party, but the new Fresh and Only's seems to be making ripples outside the Bay Area pond....

2010 Scream Awards

Trailer for the Spike Scream awards - homage to Back To The of my fave movies!!!

Paul Rodriquez X Incase

We helped out Gabe and Mike with this edit for Incase with P-rod in SF.....

check here

Frijid Pink

More semi-obscure 70's goodness. what the fuck was in the water in Detroit?? MC5? stooges? Amboy dukes and these fuckers. They dismantled 'House Of The Rising Sun' , and their debut LP is a scorcher... check it.

I perform this exact routine every time I pour myself a glass of whiskey...

found at Dangerous Minds


Mike and thew MASH crew still killing it. Walton riding cross on a track bike with a broken arm. Animal.


Keith Morris' (Black Flag/Circle Jerks) new band with a geezer from Red Kross and the drummer from the Hot Snakes/Rocket From The Crypt. Pretty sick.

Finally, my favorite Mod Revival band. Untouchable.


Another band on the fence between Punk and Mod....

More Mod Punk

Always been a fan of the tougher Mod gear - some of the bigger bands like Secret Affair werer waaaay too wimpy, but the good good shit. The Quads were loved by John Peel but never made it to any comps so kinda got forgotten. This track is a banger....

Mod / Punk?

Spent the last few weeks checking out bands who were lumped in with the mod revival of the late seventies. Most had a pretty limited shelf life - the tag 'mod' proving the kiss of death for most, a small selection here.

Second Coming Of Hate

Greydon Clark's epic B movie about marauding Skins...

James Gang

C list rockers from Ohio. They ipened for Cream and the Who and one of the later drummers joined Deep Purple. Rocking shit though...

Chili and Dubstep

Classic Good Vibes..

and then the BAD vibes..

African Dance Anthems

Thinkin' about picking this up over at Crammed Records. Sample:

I don't particularly like The Very Best, but this one sounds all right to me.

Evil Boy

New Die Antword video....nuts.


Watain just put out a new LP and are out on tour promoting the new LP. I must admit in the murky world of Black Metal these heads are my faves.... new LP seems a little too polished....but it's still raging....

Corin Tucker Band

We love Sleater Kinney....always have. At last, Corin Tucker ex of that band has brought out a new LP on Kill Rock Stars... and it kills.

Folk Novice

Another thing I don't know a lick about: folk music. I've read White Bicycles and bought some Leadbelly/Guthrie/Dylan and my cousin works with that Banhart (sp?) fella in LA. Mostly, I'm surprised by what gets classified as folk. But since it was brought up a couple post back, I do think Kristian Matsson is an interesting signer and I suppose he's probably belting out folk.


I don't know a damn thing about any of this... although I like the sound of trumpets. Found at WFMU's blog.


This is about 4 years old....but I was just banging the LP ....class UK vibes


here's some new beats from the man...

Alasdair Roberts

A couple of years back some of the B&M crew saw Alasdair Roberts in a small bar in SF. It was epic. The Scotsman plays traditional Scots folk and was mesmerizing.

RIP Mark Sheehan

another fallen. Mark Sheehan, singer of Our Cold died this week age 41. Our Cold were one of the few band who continued playing straight up hardcore when it wasn't fashionable. They killed it throughout. A legend.

Captain Beyond

Underrated 70's hard rock band....shit is pretty loose. Featuring the OG vocalist of Deep Purple Rod Evans and half of Iron Butterfly...... riffage....
