20,000 days on Earth with Mr. Nick Cave….
A highly anticipated documentary

this is scary - at least!

The misfit economy - innovation in the fringe. 
And as Jarmusch is often saying: “interesting stuff always happens in the margins”

Ghost Culture will definitely drive the dance sound of 2014

Introducing Toilet Room…

King Krule is beating gravity for one my favourite songs for 2013.
Might make you feel dizzy!

A band called Death - before punk there was punk

2013 in one minute animation - too quick to catch all stories

a documentary about the Greek punk scene

Today I found an old - but in mint condition - #polaroid camera in my teenage-hood boxes. Trying to find a film for it I stumbled upon this shortie about the Impossible Project obviously.

Iggy is wishing us Merry Christmas in his own style

what if #bicycles had a soul? (maybe they do)

#blogovision2013 / 2. Crystal Stilts - Nature Noir

#blogovision2013

When I first heard ‘Future Folklore' I knew that this would be another fabulous album by the Crystal Stilts. That's why I was waiting for it in the corner. They didn't let me down at the end. Clean and noir psychedelic rock without the fuzz, as it should be. As a band they are very lo-profile that's why after so many years and 3 worth remembering album they haven't gained much fame - probably they don't seek for it. This makes them even more suitable for my No.2.

How I came to know them?

Working from home while listening to Flashback Records sessions on NTS Radio I had to take a big break in order to seek more info for the band behind “In other words”.

It took me more time to find some info for them online rather than finding their 250 limited edition 7” in the record stores. Their name is really bad for SEO. I finally managed to get hold of both their releases (getting the window copy of their 7” was a big relief). Considering the fact that they formed only a year ago, they are doing pretty well. Playing regular gigs in usual-suspect venues will give them the chance to become my local favourites for 2014.

Bar where you can find them bar-tending: Power Lunches (the myth says they formed in the basement)

Favourite singles: Get going, Long way home

Influences: Delta 5, The Slits
