Dub Gabriel – Anarchy & Alchemy (Destroy All Concepts)

Thu, 2008-11-27 11:55
Brooklyn, NYC-based dub / downbeat producer Dub Gabriel certainly managed to make some waves in all the right critical circles with his impressive 2005 debut album ‘Bass Jihad’, with his bass-meets-ragga explorations calling to mind the likes of Rhythm & Sound and Stereotyp whilst receiving plaudits from both the WIRE and XLR8R. Three years on, this follow-up on Gabriel’s own Destroy All Concepts label sees him pretty much picking up the baton directly from where ‘Bass Jihad’ left off, with D

By Marina Cashdan Miuccia Prada recently commissioned Rem Koolhaas to create The Prada Foundation’s future home, exploring the relationship between historical and contemporary architecture and industrial and cultural sensitivities.

Branching Out: How Jill Hoffman-Kowal Went From Punk Rock Scenester to Garden Collagist

Tue, 2008-11-25 23:24
Ed. note: This article, by Kevin Costello, will appear in next week’s Creative Loafing. A previous version of this post incorrectly referred to San Francisco city supervisor Harvey Milk as the mayor of San Francisco. We regret the error. In 1983, Jill Hoffman-Kowal moved to Sarasota because the San Francisco punk scene was getting in the way of her art. She never left. Her life trajectory, however, is hardly that simple. Along with Joe Rees — a video documentarian — Hoffman-Kowal photograph

Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell

Tue, 2008-11-25 22:50
His face is long and serious and filled with acne scars. Photos of him look more realistic in black and white. His music is experimental, ethereal and multi-faceted. He attacked his cello with the internal burning of a coal furnace. Just looking at him conjures up pre-AIDS New York City, where he lived and, much too soon, died. He is Arthur Russell, an eccentric near-genius who skated along the fringes of a musical movement that shot wildly from a time fueled by heavy drugs and heavy beats. In

Heroin Chic

Sun, 2008-11-23 15:00
There’s a story about the movie Pulp Fiction. In case you’re not familiar with the movie, one of the lead characters is Vincent Vega, a heroin-addicted mob hit man. When Quentin Tarantino offered the role to John Travolta, Travolta said he’d take the part as long as the movie didn’t make heroin seem cool. Vincent Vega dies a decidedly un-glamorous death and as a bonus we get to see Uma Thurman overdose on smack, which is not particularly cool either. Heroin addiction is not pleasant and smack

O Superman du weekend par Laurie Anderson de 1981

Sat, 2008-11-22 20:54
A l'époque, cette chanson m'intriguait et me plaisait sans que je la comprenne vraiment. Aujourd'hui, je la comprends bien mieux et elle m'intrigue et me plait encore plus. "Here come the planes So you better get ready." O Superman. O judge. O Mom and Dad. Mom and Dad. O Superman. O judge. O Mom and Dad. Mom and Dad. Hi. I'm not home right now. But if you want to leave a message, just start talking at the sound of the tone. Hello? This is your Mother. Are you there? Are you

Book Notes - John Reed ("All the World's a Grave")

Fri, 2008-11-21 16:57
In the Book Notes series, authors create and discuss a music playlist that is in some way relevant to their recently published books. In All the World's a Grave: A New Play by William Shakespeare, John Reed takes the lines and characters from Shakespeare's plays and has created a new, exciting and often funny story starring familiar icons like Macbeth, Hamlet, King Lear and others. Reed has brought music's remix culture to literature with stunning results. In his own words, here is John Ree

Musical Tastes Project

Border Explorer has tagged me to add to the project set up to track bloggers musical tastes. I like loud music but I also like mellow music so it just depends on if I am rocking or contemplating life and so I was in a dilemma which aspect to post about. Well Jobsanger ended that problem by tagging me again! So for Border I will post the mellower stuff and for Jobsanger I will rock out. Or at least I will use that as my framework. But first the rules...The multitalented Robert Rouse of Left
