Some more decent live footage of WHITE MURDER from the show they did with TSOL at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach recently.

The first song is an unreleased tune called “California” which is immediately followed by “The Tell-All” from their “Harold’s Place” single. 

They’re also playing this Friday, August 1st at 4th Street Vine in Long Beach.

The Lees of Memory - We Are Siamese

The Lees of Memory just posted a music video for the song “We Are Siamese” from their upcoming debut LP this September. The video matches the shoegaze aesthetic that the band is striving for musically. And if you weren’t already aware this is the new band from John Davis of Superdrag.

Gig #45 of 2014: Man Or Astro-Man?

Photo by Leslie Kalohi for LA Record

This past Tuesday, July 22nd I had the chance to see Man Or Astro-Man? at The Roxy in Hollywood for the first time. I’ve been familiar with them for a number of years but had never seen them live. Prior to the show I decided to not look up footage  of them so I could go in with little conception as to their live show. I was pleasantly surprised at just how fun and thoroughly tight they are as a band. Their use of visuals in performance is done well and fits perfectly into their interstellar-surf inspired sound. I’d sure as hell go see them again.

It may just be a little over a minute or so in length but this is the first official glimpse into what the newly reconvened KING CRIMSON is going to be sounding like on their upcoming tour. 

Exciting times.

Henry Rollins on Greg Ginn/Black Flag Lawsuit


KW: How is it that you were drawn into the lawsuit between Black Flag and FLAG?

HR: Greg Ginn made a mistake he paid for dearly. I give him credit that the checks he cut actually cleared. It must have hurt.

KW: Do you have an opinion on either of those two acts?

HR: It takes guts to move onto the next thing and risk setback and or failure. For myself, I can’t imagine being sixty years of age and playing music I wrote when I was in my twenties. I would rather sail the sea of consequence to new lands. Laps around the shallow end of the pool, not for me.
