May 5, 2016 7:47am | Fact Magazine

The veteran UK selector plays every Saturday throughout August.

DJ Harvey has been confirmed as the latest resident to play a stint at London’s XOYO club.

The DJ will play every Saturday night in August, and is his first London residency since he was a regular at the city’s Ministry of Sound club 25 years ago.

Harvey spent much of the last decade in the USA, but has played regularly in the UK since returning in 2012. Last year he played a weekly residency at Ibiza Rocks.

Each night will see the DJ play seven-hour sets with no support in the club’s basement, and follows a month-long residency from Artwork throughout July. Harvey is one of the Shoreditch club’s most high profile residents, joining artists including Scuba, Eats Everything and Jackmaster.

XOYO’s current resident is Tiga, who is curating Saturday nights at the club until the end of June. As well as an all-night set from him, guests include Hudson Mohawke, Erol Akan and Tessela.

Full details and tickets for all events can be found at the XOYO website.

Radioheads 30 best songs before Burn The Witch
May 5, 2016 7:07am | Fact Magazine

Putting the Oxford group’s finest tracks in their right place.

We know what youre thinking. The truth is, it took us so long to even decide how many songs to include in this list that we couldnt possibly have pulled this stunt off in a day just to capitalise on the release of Burn The Witch, the reassuringly impressive first song from the bands ninth album.

Weve been incubating and arguing over the 30 greatest Radiohead songs for most of the year. Its been a fools errand, obviously reshuffling the back catalogue of one of rocks great album acts feels barely short of treason for a true Radiohead stan, but some dark nerd impulse has continued to fuel the idea that we can pull off a quantitative analysis.

Putting this list together, we were reminded of everything we ever loved and have more recently perhaps forgotten about Radiohead. When theyre not being accused of miserablism by oafish jocks and your least amusing relatives, theyre often the target of sneering snobbery from know-alls who were apparently listening to Autechre while still in diapers. Ignore the haters show us another band of the past two decades that has carved a permanent space in the karaoke book while introducing millions of wannabe guitar heroes to musique concrete, glitchy electronica and computer synthesis (and diverting so much wasted energy in the process).

As a kind of twisted thank you after almost 25 ye...


Death Grips reveal new track Trash via special hotline
May 5, 2016 6:22am | Fact Magazine

Check Instagram for updates.

Ahead of their eagerly-awaited album Bottomless Pit dropping tomorrow, Death Grips have peeled back the curtain on another track, ‘Trash’. But you’ll have to dial a hotline to hear it.

Punch 1-844-278-7255 into your phone and you’ll hear a message welcoming you to the “caged pillow feelings network.” You can then press 1 to hear ‘Trash’, 2 to hear a radio broadcast – that segues into the American national anthem – or 3 to leave a message.

Pressing 4 triggers a woman’s voice: “How to touch the world of caged pillows” The response offers this answer: “You just have to look in the right light. … We will guide you through the process step by step over the next few days.”

Updates will be posted via the band’s Instagram account but “the feelings network is a living breathing object and changes day to day, so you might want to save this number to your contacts.”

Watch Grimes dazzling performance of Flesh Without Blood on The Tonight Show
May 5, 2016 5:37am | Fact Magazine

Strobes and full skirts.

Grimes stepped up as the musical guest on last night’s (May 4) Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform her ‘Flesh Without Blood’ single.

Powered by multi-coloured lights and strobe-led visuals, the Canadian artist was accompanied by a group of dancers in full skirts for a theatrical performance of the track from her Art Angels LP, which placed high in our list of the best albums of 2015.

Grimes only released Art Angels last year, but she said in April that she is already working on two new releases: a Lana Del Rey-inspired bonus edition of Art Angels featuring discarded demos and B-sides from the making of that record, and an all-new LP of music she describes as chill vibes.

Last month it was announced that the artist will be the new face of POP – a sustainable fragrance from Stella McCartney.

Outsider icon Doug Hream Blunt seeks band for Field Day performance
May 5, 2016 5:04am | Fact Magazine

You can apply to play with the Luaka Bop artist on stage.

Cult US artist Doug Hream Blunt has been announced for this year’s Field Day festival in London, and has put out an open call for musicians to join his band.

Hailing from San Francisco, Blunt only began playing music at the age of 35 when he took an adult learning class called How To Start A Band, with other students in the class becoming his band members.

As well as having fans in Hype Williams’ Dean Blunt and Ariel Pink, his outsider pop eventually caught the ear of David Byrne, who last year released a compilation of Blunt’s music on his Luaka Bop label.

Blunt will appear on both days of Field Day this year, and for his Saturday show has put out an open call for musicians of all types and abilities to join his band. According to Field Day, “youve just gotta be able to fall into a groove and then move.” Full details on how to apply can be found at Blunt’s website.

The Sunday performance will see him joined by the Messengers, an ensemble comprised of musicians from the Mungo Charity and Barbican homeless music group.

Other acts scheduled to play at this year’s Field Day include James Blake, Kelela, Daphni, Novelist, Air, Holly Herndon, Ata Kak, Four Tet, Skepta and Floating Points.

The festival takes place in London’s Victoria...


Pharrell is getting his own action figure
May 5, 2016 4:49am | Fact Magazine

Worryingly life-like.

Pharrell is teaming up with Japanese toy company Medicon to release his own action figure, it was announced via Instagram yesterday (May 4).

The figure will see the ‘Get Lucky’ singer modelling the same divisive outfit he wore to the 2014 GRAMMYs, including that Vivienne Westwood cowboy hat and waxy red Adidas tracksuit top. It also comes with a bracelet, watch, carabiner and a microphone. Oh, and there’s even a matching neck tattoo.

Pharrell joins the creepy canon of musicians who have already been immortalised in plastic, including Travi$ Scott and Daft Punk. 

Costing $281 – slightly less than the Japanese figurine that went for $20,000 at the Hong Kong edition of the Art Basel show last year – you can pick up your own mini Pharrell in January 2017.

Coming soon… @medicom_toy

Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh adapts Alan McGees memoir into Creation Records movie
May 5, 2016 4:40am | Fact Magazine

The Britpop mogul’s story on screen.

Irvine Welsh has signed up to write a screenplay based on Alan McGee’s memoir about running Creation Records, the label that launched the careers of Oasis, Primal Scream and The Jesus & Mary Chain.

Called Creation Stories, the film will chronicle McGee’s rise from the late 80s to the peak of Britpop in the 90s while charting the renowned loudmouth’s “relentless ambition and wealth coupled with mental torment, drugs and eventually bankruptcy,” as Variety reports. No word on casting or director yet, but we’d put a tenner on Bobby Gillespie playing himself.

Creation Records closed in 2000 but McGee soon found other rock reprobates to manage, looking after The Libertines in their 00s heyday and running another imprint, Poptones, until 2007. He looked back on his early career in his 2013 memoir The Creation Records Story: Riots, Raves and Running a Label.

Welsh, a close friend of McGee’s, has had several works adapted for the big screen before, including Filth and the iconic 90s film Trainspotting, which is also getting a movie sequel soon.
