Marcel Dettmann, Kobosil and Norman Nodge remix Terence Fixmer for Ostgut Ton
Apr 16, 2015 8:22pm | Fact Magazine

Dettmann, Kobosil and Norman Nodge have each remixed Fixmer’s ‘Aktion Mekanik Theme’.

Ostgun Ton is preparing to re-release Terence Fixmer’s ‘Action Mekanik Theme’, originally released via Belgian-based Music Man Records back in 2003. The track was originally featured on the Aktion Mekanik compilation compiled by Fixmer, alongside tracks from Nitzer Ebb, Skinny Puppy and Fad Gadget. Aktion Mekanik was released to showcase the EBM and industrial music that has had a significant influence on Fixmer’s creative output.

Recently, Fixmer’s ‘Aktion Mekanik Theme’ has found its way back into the sets of DJs such as Marcel Dettmann. The MDR boss has been picked to remix the track for the re-release, alongside versions from Berghain regulars Kobosil and Norman Nodge. The 12″ contains all three remixes, whilst the digital version also includes Fixmer’s 2003 original.

“I was surprised as, to me, this track was a kind of forgotten one from a limited vinyl compilation,” Fixmer says. “And it was a nice surprise to see that young artists such as Kobosil are into this kind of music, too. Marcel suggested to give this track a new life through remixes. The Kobosil one injects an amazing energy with a great sound, I wish I would have done su...

Apr 16, 2015 8:09pm | StereoGum
In a really great new Drake profile on Four Pins that chronicles the lead-up and aftermath of Drake's Coachella performance, the rapper drops some new info on Views From The 6, which seems like it's progressing pretty slowly. Apparently, he only has two tracks done that he really likes -- one is a Beyoncé … More »

The track, which was recorded around the time of last year's Present Tense, serves as a continuation of the Limbo, Panto track of the same name. You can listen … More »



Bill Ward asks Ozzy Osbourne for an apology, Osbourne delivers the exact opposite
Apr 16, 2015 7:01pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward and the rest of his bandmates have been at odds since 2012, when he decided to drop out of a series of reunion shows because of what he called an “unsatisfactory contract.” Now, with a final Black Sabbath album reportedly in the works, Ward has surfaced to reignite the feud once more, and Ozzy Osbourne is joining in on the heated conversation.

It all started yesterday afternoon when Ward posted a lengthy message on Facebook, which was meant to address his reasons for canceling on the reunion tour three years ago and his noticeable absence from the legendary metal outfit’s current plans for a new LP. Along with the contract he rejected, Ward also placed the blame on Osbourne, saying that he would not consider regrouping with Black Sabbath until the frontman apologized for what he claims were hurtful insults aimed at him. (Osbourne publicly called Ward too “overweight” to tour.)

“With a sad heart, I have to say I will not participate in any musical undertakings until a righting of the wrongs spoken against me has been achieved,” Ward wrote. “I must admit, I have little to no expectations of this happening, but in the order of first things first, Im looking for an honest accountability of all of Ozzys statements that I felt were untrue. I would want Ozzy to amend his opinions and exaggerations. I would want him to be forthcoming about his unrealistic viewpoints. And be...


Tequila guitarist Dave Burgess auctions Grammy to pay medical bills despite the Academys protests
Apr 16, 2015 6:51pm | Fact Magazine

“I prefer not to sell my Grammy but there is an illness in my family … they don’t own the Grammy. Most of the people over there weren’t even alive when I won.”

In 1959 Dave Burgess and his band The Champs took home some of the first ever Grammy awards in what was the inaugural ceremony held by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS). Half a century later, Burgess still has his Grammy, though not for long.

The musician has announced he will be letting the statuette go to the highest bidder in a public auction. Burgess explained to the NY Daily News that due to an illness in his family he needs the money to pay medical bills. He’d rather not part with the award, but if NARAS get their way he won’t be able to.

The Academy (much like the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences with Oscars) are very protective of their awards even after they’ve been awarded to winners. Normally Grammy winners are required to sign an agreement saying they will not sell their awards, but Burgess claims he was never required to sign such form. The Academy meanwhile has yet to comment about when that policy came into action.

“The Recording Academy has not given Mr. Burgess permission to consign or sell his Grammy Statuette,” NARAS attorney Joel Feldman told the Daily News, but as of now there is no evidence that they have that kind of aut...

Lil B launches free Thank You Based God meme generator app
Apr 16, 2015 5:49pm | Fact Magazine

The prolific rapper has been “dabbling in that Javascript.”

After releasing Basedmoji and vegEMOJI, Lil B has taken the next logical step: the living legend has released a free “meme generator” app.

“With this app, this meme generator, because I’m the artist that made memes popular in rap and now the world, I decided to put the generator straight from the source,” Lil B tells Complex.

The app is simple: upload a photo, tag it with one of the pre-loaded memes (THANK YOU BASEDGOD, LIL B IS MY FRIEND, TYBG, etc) or create your own and then share it with the world. Download the app for free via iTunes. Plus, this might not be the last app we see from Lil B.

“Shout out to my coder, Mat Held, he’s been teaching me some stuff,” he says. “I’m definitely gonna be dabbling in that Javascript. I love to help people so the things I’m doing are people focused.”

Gobby debuts as Monkeybone with a noisy techno album about a horrible roommate
Apr 16, 2015 5:27pm | Fact Magazine

Listen to the album as a continuous mix.

UNO NYC regular Gobby has self-released an album under the alias Monkeybone. As its title suggests, The Roommate is about a “horrible roommate,” charting the relationship from ‘He Moves In’ and ‘GF: Extra Keys’ to ‘His Party Mess’ and ‘The Lost Charger Fight’.

The New York producer tells Resident Advisor that the project will be for “techno and ‘experimental’whatever you want to call noisy techno.” (A description that fits parts of his whacked-out Gobby oeuvre, as well).

Stream The Roommate below. Gobby plans to perform a completely improvised live set as Monkeybone; those dates are forthcoming.

NOW HEAR THIS: Jazz Cartiers Marauding In Paradise is a career in a mixtape
Apr 16, 2015 4:50pm | Chart Attack
Now Hear This is a daily dive into the standout songs of the last 24 hours. Today, Tasseomancy stare artfully into the abyss, K.I.D crush on weed, and Jazz Cartier says there's more to Toronto than Drake's 6.

Jazz Cartier, Marauding In Paradise


The unfathomable success of Drake is a double-edged sword for a rising rapper like Jazz Cartier. On the one hand, it clears the path for a 21-year-old Torontonian to drop a statement mixtape like Marauding In Paradise and not fall on deaf ears south of the border. On the other hand, almost every interview he does is going to ask him about Aubrey Graham before they ask him about Jazz Cartier. And that leads to dubious press release claims like this one: Cartier is "the only one giving [Downtown Toronto] an identity."

But "Downtown" is as multifaceted a concept as "The Suburbs," one that can hardly be contained in a mixtape, no matter how sprawling. Maybe that's the idea? Beyond already bona fide viral hits like "New Religion" and "Downtown Cliche," the rapper establishes himself as a major voice, one that can rap or croon over dreamy minimal beats and Toro Y Moi alike, while referencing Clipse, Kensington Market and Annie Hall in practically the same breath.

It's a breakup album at heart, but it's also much bigger than that. At an East End listening party last week Cartier called the mixtape "my life's work" and it definitely sounds like a c...

Protomartyr, The Gotobeds & Grooms played The Wick (pics)
Apr 16, 2015 4:40pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Protomartyr / The Gotobeds / Grooms @ The Wick 4/15/2015

Protomartyr and The Gotobeds' tour hit NYC for a BrooklynVegan-presented show at The Wick. Protomartyr's set was about half new material, including new single "Blues Festival" which sounded great live. The band laid down tracks for their third album which will hopefully be out later this year. They were really, really loud and between that and The Wick's boomy acoustics, some of Protomartyr's dynamics got lost in the din, but still a really good set.

The Gotobeds, who played The Wick back in November opening for Sleaford Mods, put on the most fun set of the night, and frontman Eli Kasan cracked cynical jokes in between songs. "We've got the German edition of our album over there. There's a different track from the US edition and only 300 were made, so be sure to pick one up for your good friend Discogs or Ebay." It was a longer set than we got back in November, with a bunch of favorites from Poor People Are Revolting (was happy they played the very Fall-esque "Fucking Machine") and a few new ones too that may show up on their first album for Sub Pop.

The Wick's echo-iness definitely hurt openers Grooms, who were great at Music Hall of Williamsburg back in February. The artiest and most effects-driven band on the bill, they sounded...


Rose Windows broke up but new album coming on Sub Pop in May (stream two tracks)
Apr 16, 2015 4:39pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Rose Windows' new self-titled album will be out May 4. Unfortunately, the Seattle psych band broke up last month, as they announced on their Facebook:

Sometimes in life we come across pure beauty - an experience that moves us towards a sense of hope; a complete respect for the purity and love that life can offer. It's an experience of this nature that pushes us to create and make the most of what we feel we can offer and share with others. But sometimes it's not enough. As hard as we try, the creation and experience are meant to end. So sometimes we have to let go. Sometimes we have to learn to walk away instead of holding on. We've held on for a long while but the time has come for release. Rose Windows will no longer be moving forward. For the health of the band and the health of each individual member we have to let go. Although this might seem abrupt know that this does not come easy for any of us. We are all heart broken; we are all grieving. But still we have to let go. The music we've created will always be close to us and remind us of all the beauty and love the world has to offer. We only hope that it will continue to do the same for all of you.

We love you all.

Well that's a bummer. Sub Pop band Obits also recently called it quits. Meanwhile, you listen to Rose Windows' "Stripmall Babylon" and "Glory Glory" from the new album album below.

Rose Windows were due to play Sasquatch Fest and Levitation Austin, b...

Long-running Chicago post-rock band Brokeback (led by Douglas McCombs of Tortoise and Eleventh Dream Day) are on tour now with Come/Codeine guitarist Chris Brokaw (who's opening for them and playing in the band). That tour comes to NYC on Friday (4/17) at Trans-Pecos also with Holy Sons, the project of Emil Amos (Om, Grails), who played NYC earlier this week too. Tickets for Friday's show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Doug McCombs and Chris Brokaw also collaborated in the band Pullman, who released Turnstyles and Junkpiles in 1998 and Viewfinder in 2001. Those albums have been out of print for over a decade, but Thrill Jockey is reissuing them on Saturday (4/18) for Record Store Day.

Stream a Pullman song, with Holy Sons' cover of Black Flag's "Breakdown On the Beach," and the list of Brokeback dates, below...
