Forward touring North America w/ Long Knife (dates)
Sep 2, 2014 4:07pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Ian Chainey


In 2013, long-running Japanese punks Forward cancelled their US tour. Many were bummed. However, now it seems a North American trek will be a reality. The Burning Spirits-bred band are making the trip over at the end of October and will play places like Los Angeles, Austin (Fun Fun Fun Fest), and Philadelphia with support from Portland's Long Knife. The tour also includes two back-to-back NYC dates: November 16 at the Acheron with Portland d-beaters (and Tragedy-related) Warcry and local ragers Ajax and November 17 at Saint Vitus with Warthog -- who released the seriously punishing Prisons this year -- and the always-busy La Misma. Tickets for the Vitus show are on sale now. No advance tickets for the Acheron show at the moment. The full list of dates appears below.

Forward were formed from members of Death Side and Insane Youth. They released a split with Teargas this year titled Burning Spirits 2014, following up their 2012 run that consisted of LP War Nuke And Death Sentence and EP Devil's Cradle. They also have one of the great Facebook About sections: "we are forward from japan, we speak little english so fuck you." Tourmates Long Knife, who have something of a Poison Ide...

New-age icon Iasos released a compilation on Numero Group, playing live and holding workshop in Brooklyn

Iasos' Celestial Soul Portrait cover art

New-age musician Iasos has been churning out dreamy, celestial material since 1975. The Alexandroupolis, Greece-born ambient auteur immigrated to the United States at four-years old, with his family, and they briefly settled in New York City before moving upstate. Iasos made a post-college, cross-country move to California in 1968 to focus on music, which he began to perform with his group the Nova Shadow Quartet while in school. He struggled for years trying to form ensembles that might be able to recreate the music he heard in his head. Iasos released his debut effort, called Inter-Dimensional Music Through Iasos, in 1975 via his own Inter-Dimensional Music label. He's gone on to release 14 albums (most via IDM), and last year saw compilation Celestial Soul Portrait come out via Chicago's incomparable Numero Group. You can stream Celestial Soul Portrait (via Rdio) in this post.

Iasos live is an extremely rare occurrence, but when it does happen, his shows are one-to-two-hour multimedia experiences complete with self-designed visuals. NYC can experience this while celebrating the arrival of Fall at Baby's All Right on September 23 as part of the venue's first annual "Autumnal Equinox Celebration." The evening also features drink specials, the restaurant will have a special menu, and Prince Rama will DJ the afterparty. &nbsp...

Diplo and Skrillex were booed off the stage at Burning Man
Sep 2, 2014 3:55pm | Cosequence Of Sound

During this summer’s Mad Decent Block Party, Diplo and Skrillex have been continually regaled as two conquering EDM heroes arriving home back in Greece. But as the EDM maestros learned during an appearance at Burning Man last week, not all electronic fans are quite as ready to shower onto them throngs of adulation.

The two superstar producers, who perform together under the Jack U moniker, played a surprise set at the Nevada festival last Wednesday night, filling in for Detroit DJ Seth Troxler following a sudden drop-out. Or, more accurately they tried to play.

While audience members were tolerant of Skrillex’s signature wobbles and drops, they were simply fed up with Diplo after he played DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s smash hit, “Turn Down For What”. According to Pulse Radio (via, the choice in song was immediately met with a roar of angry boos, and both he and Skrillex were forced to leave the stage.

However, Diplo himself claims the pair were never actually booed off stage. In a subsequent tweet, he wrote, “@PulseRadio @burningman of u check the video we played techno for an hour and ended w turn down for what and people cheered lol ask robot.” As of publication, no video of the incident has surfaced online.

I guess we know what Burning Man attendees will turn down for.

Wilco rose from the ashes of Uncle Tupelo in 1994, which means they’ve been a band for 20 years now. And to mark that occasion, they’ve got a few things in the works, as a recent post on their website announces. The band hasn’t unveiled any details yet, but they’ve got plans to release their first best-of collection, as well as a box set of rarities. And they’ve also announced a short, celebratory fall tour.

No Joy played Brooklyn Night Bazaar, add Mercury Lounge date w/ Tonstartssbandht after MHOW w/ Deafheaven
Sep 2, 2014 3:34pm | Brooklyn Vegan

No Joy @ BKNB 8/30/2014 (via @brooklynvegan instagram)

No Joy were in NYC over the weekend, playing Brooklyn Night Bazaar on Saturday night as part of a lineup that included Black Pus (Brian Chippendale of Lightning Bolt), Cousin Brian, and Flagland. Set against projections of (the reunited) Blood Brothers live footage, the Montreal group peppered their set with new material -- it's been about a year and a half since Wait to Pleasure -- along with songs from their two albums and EPs. Volume has always been in their arsenal, but No Joy seemed extra vociferous on Saturday and was easily the loudest set I've personally heard at BKNB. Perhaps they're just gearing up to compete in the loudness wars with soon-to-be tourmates Deafheaven. That tour kicks off in Brooklyn at Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 14 (sold out).

New York will get yet another chance to see No Joy as they'll play Mercury Lounge on September 15, the day after the MHOW show. That one is with their MTL pals Tonstartssbandht and tickets for the Mercury Lounge show go on sale Wednesday (9/3) at noon. Updated tour dates are listed below...

Diarrhea Planet Platinum Girls Video
Sep 2, 2014 3:31pm | StereoGum

So many of the iconic shows we grow up with end up seeming dated and dumb when we view them as adults. The Adventures Of Pete And Pete is not one of those shows. Seriously, if anything, it’s better in hindsight. When you’re a little kid, the character of Nona’s dad is nothing more than an overprotective square, but watch it as an adult and — holy shit that’s Iggy Pop! It was all so perfect: school bullies with personas better than some Bond villains; Steve Buscemi as school guidance counselor; Michael Stipe selling Sludgesicles; and especially the excellent opening theme song by Polaris.


Listen: James Williamson re-records early Stooges song Im Sick Of You with The Orwells Mario Cuomo
Sep 2, 2014 3:25pm | Cosequence Of Sound

While the future of The Stooges remains unclear, guitarist James Williamson will forge on with his own solo album later this fall. Re-Licked features 16 “lesser-known Stooges tracks properly recorded and mixed for the first time.”

In addition to being backed by live Stooges members Steve Mackay, Toby Dammit, and Mike Watt, Williamson has recruited a handful of A-list lead singers. That list includes Dead Kennedys Jello Biafra, Mark Lanegan, The Kills Alison Mosshart, Primal Screams Bobby Gillespie, Ariel Pink, and many more.

Our first preview of the record comes in the form of “I’m Sick Of You”, Williamsons collaboration with The Orwells own Mario Cuomo. A gruff and propulsive number that features Cuomo growling over feverish riffs, the track is said to be “one of the very earliest songs (Williamson)] wrote with Iggy (Pop) back in around late 1970.”

Listen in below (via BrooklynVegan).

Re-Licked is due out on October 29th via Leopard Lady Records. Check out the albums official tracklist and artwork below.

Re-Licked Tracklist:
01. Head On The Curve (w/ Jello Biafra)
02. Open Up And Bleed (w/ Carolyn Wonderland)
03. Scene Of The Crime (w/ Bobby Gillespie from Primal Scream)
04. She Creatures Of The Hollywood Hills (w/ Ariel Pink)

Rare disco version of John Carpenters Assault on Precinct 13 theme set for vinyl reissue
Sep 2, 2014 3:21pm | Fact Magazine

A special disco version of John Carpenter‘s influential theme to Assault on Precinct 13 has been around for years, but you’d be excused for having missed it.

The track was commissioned for the film itself back in 1976 and masterminded by British 60s legend Kenny Lynch, who had up-and-coming Trinidadian Jimmy Chambers to pen a vocal accompaniment to Carpenter’s easily-recognizable original. The result was memorable disco theme ‘You Can’t Fight It’, but for some reason it ended up only being attached to the Italian version of the film itself and after a small 7″ run disappeared into obscurity.

Thanks to Fly By Night Music founder Lorenzo we now have the opportunity to finally clasp our hands around a remastered pressing of the track. Reportedly the label boss went to great lengths to secure the rights, and is set to press the track to 10″ and back it with a beefed-up edit from Riccio.

‘You Can’t Fight It’ will be released on November 3 on 10″ vinyl only via Fly By Night Music, and you can hear the original track below.
