The Dead Weather

Jack White of The White Stripes has started ANOTHER band... Although to be fair if something decent (other than this tune) comes out of this band, its probably for the best, as I thought The Raconteurs were pretty kack. The band has brought together Alison Mosshart (double smash) of The Kills, Raconteurs bassist Jack Lawrence, and Queens Of The Stone Age guitarist Dean Fertitta...It's almost as if they're trying for some sort of 'supergroup'. The single 'Hang you from the heavens' has the moody, distorted blues timbre sound you'd expect from these artists, but Mosshart's voice just spells sexy slut. Bit of a 'try2be edgy' video but its pretty sick.

Liam Gallaghers 'Pretty Green Clothing'

Well to be honest I'm suprised this day hasn't come sooner than it has. Liam Gallagher has started his own clothing range called 'Pretty Green'. Most likely taken from The Jam tune. He says "Clothes and music are my passion. I'm not here to rip anyone off and I'm not doing it for the money either. I'm doing it cuz there's a lack of stuff out there of the things I would wear". I'm really not lookin forward to the amount of cheesy wankers, ranting on about this when it comes out and starts getting alot more publicity. I for one will definitely not be wearing any of it, however I'm sure a number of people in my 'friendship group' will be. Seriously, being a 'top music artist' and releasing your own clothing range, spells sell out. I think he needs to put his feet up at call it a day. You can even email the big dog himself and ask him a question about fashion via the website


Saw this interview on Nice little interview with Jarvis Cocker, talking about Sheffield, Paris and Song writing. Haven't heard much from the old cock-cock lately, and it's a pretty interesting chingwag. Also found this series called 'songbook' revealing the secrets and stories behind some of my favourite tunes. Each song discussed is played on acoustic by Jarvis, everyone sounding lovely jubbly. You can watch part 1 above, and there's another 8 to watch you can find on youtube. Seriously though...look how little views they've got, what are all you fanatic pulp fans doing?

Phillip Toledano is a photographer I saw in Hotshoe a couple of years ago. I recently picked up on one of his more recent projects titled 'Phonesex'. Now I'm not really the type to ring up 'sex lines' (at least for a few years) but from what you see on the TV I always get the image of them being really fit, in a really clean environment.
Toledano goes into the live's of the people that work in this industry. Invading their privacy and finding out why they do the job they do. It's a really bizarre subject, and when the photo's are read with text, they're like short stories. The images also appear to be quite glossy/editorial. I'm unsure as to why he's done this, but it's definitley a different approach that works well with documentary photography. Click here to view the rest of the series with text/

Barbour Outwear Spring 2009

Although my bunse is mainly going out of my pocket for things i dont even wanna pay for, and the likely hood of me buying a jacket for the summer is very little. Having a ganders and the new range for spring is always a good wind up. My fave from the lot is the new international. Click here to have a peek at the rest.

Good Girl Gone Bad

So when you think of a squeaky clean, nice bit of totty. Natalie Portman is definitley on the list. You'll know her from playing Padame Amidala in the more recent starwars films. Click the link to realise what a 10 she really is. Basically take her then corrupt her with malevolent badboy ways until she ends up foul mouthed and able to throw a load of filth out of your speakers. Whilst it's all a bit of a piss take...I can't get my head round whether she's more sexy this way or not? Uncensored Version (Audio only)

Bukowski Artwork

While not generally remembered for his artistic skills, Bukowski was capable of producing some surprisingly good paintings. Of course he was primarily a writer, not a painter. There's a few strong paintings whilst the majority of them are just jokes.

He produced literally hundreds of these paintings. Most of them painted on 6 X 9 inch paper with thick layers of acrylics, oil paint, watercolors, pastels, crayons, pens - whatever was at hand. They were sent to Black Sparrow (Publisher) where they were bound into special hardcover first editions of his books.

"The difference between life and art, is art is more bearable" - Bukowski.

Not your average police brutality....

Fucking cowards..

The Armando Iannucci Shows

So I'm currently in the process of getting through a series of sketch shows that were aired on channel 4 in 2001. If you don't recognise the name you'll probably know him from writing 'I'm Alan Partridge' and 'The thick of it'. I've only watched the first three episodes, but so far they're pretty fucking good, with alot of heavy hearted humour. Each episode is set with a 'rough theme' with a surreal narrative throughout. The series is noted for its CGI and realistic violence. You'll recognise some of the dialogue sampled in rusko's 'cockney thug' tune. I haven't been able to find any episodes on youtube so far, but there's a few torrents/rapidshare downloads about, or just buy the fucking thing. Here's a couple of clips though if your not really 'down with downloads'.
