shredding with slugs is a new meme, but Slugdge is no joke

Prince / Slayer's Kerry King jamming on slugs

According to me, slugs are the most terrifying thing on the planet. Crawling bags of snot? Yeah, pass. Even typing the word makes me want to pour a protective circle of salt around myself at all times.

So it's with the utmost horror that I pass along the new Tumblr Slug Solos. The collection is courtesy of @michaelmphysics, the same brain behind Bass Dogs. The concept? Simple: "Some guitarists' solo faces look like they've just realised they're holding giant slug creatures." He's right. I've also soiled myself. You can check out a few of Michael's more (like the Prince one above) below, and see the rest here. The Kerry King one is our own creation though.

That said, there are some slugs I can get down with. A couple weeks back, Invisible Oranges reviewed Gastronomicon, the newest album by death metal band Slugdge. The theme is as nutty as the name, sliming up Lovecraftian tales about an ancient species of interstellar/inter-dimensional, you guessed it, slugs. Here's a taste of the lyrics:

Rhaexorog the lord of all, protector of what lies beyond/the greatest of the chosen ones, anointed of the netherslugs!
But don't let appearances make you think this is just a gimmick. Slugdge actually rip, like a crazy combination of Carcass, Demilich, Edge of Sanity, and Arcturus. All hail Mollusca the Gr...

I have Kid Rocks Insane Clown Posse-gifted glass dildo and Im never giving it back
Jul 23, 2014 3:40pm | Chart Attack

Yes, I'm the guy who has Kid Rock's glass dildo, gifted to him by "Dirty Dan" Diamond, formerly of Insane Clown Posse's label Psychopathic Records. A subpoena has been issued for Rock to present the dildo as evidence in a sexual harassment lawsuit against Diamond, but I'll never give up a piece of nu-metal history so easily.

Did you abandon your seventh grade chess club to buy Korn's Issues? Did you leave your sick grandmother's bedside to blast fruit-flavoured malt liquor and peer over a fence at Static X? Then you will never understand.

The complaint was filed in September 2013 by Insane Clown Posse's former publicist Andrea Pellegrini, against Diamond as well as ICP members Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope and their manager William Dale. It lists harassment, retaliation, infliction of emotional distress and wongful termination over her three years with the rap empire. This allegedly included sexual harassment instigated by Diamond, who gave her the dildo (and has admitted under oath to making sexually explicit remarks). When she declined, Diamond gave it to Kid Rock. He's assumed to still have it, and has 14 days to comply with the court order, issued by Michigan's Oakland County Circuit Court.

He can tear apart all of his houses, but he'll never find it.

I want to say unequivocally that I did not steal Kid Rock's glass dildo. It chose me. On Kid Rock's 5th annual Chillin' The Most Cruise, it appeared be...

Ex Cops' new album "executive produced" by Billy Corgan (stream a track)
Jul 23, 2014 3:17pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Ex Cops are back with their second album, Daggers, which is out October 28 via their new label home, Downtown. (Their debut was on Other Music.) The shift in labels also marks a shift in sound: Amalie Bruun and Brian Harding worked with producer Justin Raisen (Sky Ferriera, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue) on the album which was also "executive produced" by Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan. Gone is the understated vibe of their debut. Says Harding, "We are not afraid of our favorite music anymore. It's pop." Stream the very poppy, very big-sounding "Black Soap" from the album, and check out the LP tracklist, below....

Original Wild Style breakbeats released for first time as 7-disc vinyl set
Jul 23, 2014 3:15pm | Fact Magazine

Wild Style breakbeats issued as 7-disc vinyl set" width="685" height="625" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-223573" />

These are the breaks… from the groundbreaking hip-hop film.

Released in 1983, director Charlie Ahearn’s Wild Style was the first film about hip-hop, and a crucial document of the culture’s early days. During production, Ahearn needed to pick the music that the DJs, rappers and b-boys of the film would be performing, and rather than use the breakbeat records that were popular at the time, he commissioned hip-hop original Fab 5 Freddy.

Recorded over a week in 1981, the Wild Style Breakbeats 12″ was limited to a white-label run of 100 copies and was given to the DJs in the film including GrandWizzard Theodore, Charlie Chase and Kevie Kev Rockwell who used them in the film’s live performance scenes. Curiously, out of the 13 breakbeats, only five were used in the film or on the soudntrack, leaving eight lost to history until now.

Renowned DJ Kenny Dope obtained the original reel-to-reel tapes, remastering and extending the tracks beyond their minute-long runtimes for what will be the set’s first, non-bootleg release. Dope’s Kay-Dee Records has teamed with reissue specialists Get On Down for the debut of the label’s “Book Series” and will release the set as Wild Style Breakbeats as a set of seven 45 records. The records are jo...

Om touring this fall with Watter (members of Grails and Slint) (dates & related news)

Om at the Met in 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)

Masters of metallic hypnosis, Om have been touring in short bursts this year. Back in April, they played a handful of dates out west. In October, eastern drone-heads get their opportunity to check out the doomy and dubby trio along with the supergroup Watter that features members of Grails and Slint. The bands have announced stops in places like Boston, Philadelphia, and Chicago. The two will play NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on October 5. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 25. The full tour schedule appears below.

Of course, the reason Om make these short, regional hops is because their members have packed planners. Al Cisneros is set to tour with Sleep in August, including a stop at NYC's Stage 48 on August 25. In case you missed it, Sleep also exhaled a song for the first time in 20 years. Emil Amos -- who also plays in Grails -- put the finishing touches on his solo Holy Sons album The Fact Facer which will see release through Thrill Jockey on September 23 (preorder). And Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe has his share of engagements under his Lichens moniker.

As for their future stage-sharers Watter, the Zak Riles, Tyler Trotter, and Britt Walford band released their debut This World in May. Like Om, the band emphasiz...

Watch Narduwar Interview Yung Lean
Jul 23, 2014 2:35pm | CMJ

The best Narduwar interviews are the ones where everyone seems to be having fun and Lydia Lunch isn’t mad the whole time. Even though Swedish rapper Yung Lean’s crew is known as the Sad Boys, they all fell on the fun end of the spectrum when Narduwar caught up with them in Vancouver. The interview below includes the typical Narduwar fanfare like gifts, odd stories, personal secrets and atypical stuff like when Yung Gud talks about his fat Drake dream or when Yung Lean turns the tables on Narduwar and gives him a gift. Watch it below.

Melted Toys released new album, on tour, playing NYC with Free Time who have a new 7" (dates, streams)
Jul 23, 2014 2:34pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Melted Toys

San Francisco's Melted Toys are currently on tour supporting their new album, Melted Toys 2, which came out a couple weeks ago on Underwater Peoples. Like their debut, the album falls somewhere between psych and indiepop, easy-to-swallow and effervescent, with occasional halucinatory side effects. You can stream it via Rdio. That tour pulls into NYC this Friday (7/25) at Cake Shop with their Underwater Peoples labelmates Free Time and Street Gnar also on the bill.

Free Time

Speaking of, Australian expats Free Time have a new single, "Esoteric Tizz," that will be out via Underwater People on August 19. The A-side was was recorded by Jarvis Taveniere of Woods; the B-side, "Guess Work," was recorded by Real Estate frontman Martin Courtney and you can stream that below.

In addition to the Cake Shop show with Melted Toys, Free Time have a couple other NYC shows coming up: August 7 Baby's All Right with Spectre Folk and Words With Frank Linetti (tickets); and Glasslands on September 21 with fellow Brooklyn Aussies Scott & Charlene's Wedding (tickets).

All Melted Toys dates are listed, along with the Free Time stream, below.

Hear TOPS sad, groovy new Way to be Loved
Jul 23, 2014 2:33pm | Chart Attack

TOPS, the Montreal loft scene's easy listening pop group, have a new album out this year on Arbutus Records. "Way To Be Loved" boasts a fuller sound than the glittering jangle of their debut Tender Opposites. Still, an odd brew of pity and summertime crush niftily marries the band's melancholy streak with their jiggy, synth-speckled grooves.

TOPS's new album Picture You Staring is out September 2 via Arbutus; pre-order it here.

Listen: Nicholas Nicholas Cave
Jul 23, 2014 2:20pm | CMJ

Brooklyn Brooklyn band band Nicholas Nicholas (actually the project of a dude named Chris Masullo) is dropping a new cassette next month via Miscreant/Frenchkiss. The cassette, Wrong, was mastered by Warren Hildebrand (Foxes In Fiction/Orchid Tapes) who seems to be everywhere these days.

Another thing that’s everywhere (transitions!) is Masullo’s voice in this new song, Cave. There’s like 30 of him filtered through half industrial percussion, half iced-out guitars and looped around until it sounds like a bedroom choir in a…cave. Listen below.

Juicy J @ Terminal 5 w/ Vinny Cha$e + Kid Art & Grahf - pics

Juicy J @ T5 - 7/22/14

"How many people know the history of Juicy J?" said Juicy. "What y'all know about that Three 6 Mafia?" From that moment on Juicy took us back to the 2000s, with "Poppin My Collar," "Sippin' on Some Syrup," "Slob on My Knob" and of course "Stay Fly."

For the entire set--which was much longer than one would have expected--Juicy had the crowd hype as he took everyone down memory lane. For over two decades he has seen success with Three 6 Mafia and as an individual artist. He even took a moment to ask the crowd if he should quit. That thought was quickly put to rest, as he ended his performance with "We in this Bxtch" and "Show Out."

I mean, if he did retire, who would supply the world with ratchet music? [XXL]

Juicy J is currently on another leg of his 'Never Sober' tour ahead of the release of his planned new LP, The Hustle Continues. The tour brought him through NYC last night (7/22) for a big show at Terminal 5 that saw him playing plenty of his recent hits ("Bandz a Make Her Dance," "Show Out," etc), other peoples' recent hits that he guests on (like Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" and Miley Cyrus' "23"), some cuts from his time in Three 6 Mafia and more. His older brother/collaborator Project Pat was supposed to open, but at the last minute he was replaced by Vinny Cha$e + Kid Art and Grafh. Pictures from the show are in ...
