Fabric reportedly facing closure after new license review
Dec 18, 2014 6:50am | Fact Magazine

London clubbing institution Fabric is reportedly facing closure after police called for a review of its license.

According to the Islington Gazette - ITV and the Evening Standard are also running with the story – police made the move after an MDMA-related death in September. Officers claim that eight people have collapsed from ecstasy use in the last three years at Fabric, four of whom later died, and they are “seriously consider[ing] revoking the club’s license.

In a report, Ch Supt Steve Deehan said: Immaturity of lifestyle of the patrons leads to them becoming actively involved in the taking of illegal drugs and this could account for the disproportionate and wholly unacceptable number of deaths and near death incidents at the venue.

The licensing commitee are reviewing Fabric’s license tonight, the club will not comment on the story until then.

Story being expanded.

Live Report: Manic Street Preachers perform The Holy Bible
Dec 18, 2014 4:39am | Drowned In Sound

Manics fan Marc Burrows ventured out to see them perform their "masterpiece"...

Manic Street Preachers

Roundhouse, London Dec 16th 2014

Twenty years on. Twenty years gone. Yet here we are. The improbable has happened and the three members of the Manic Street Preachers are performing the whole, vile, violent, festering mass of the The Holy Bible, their masterpiece. His masterpiece. £35 a ticket and here we are. Faux camouflage t-shirts and pretend dog tags on the merch stall. Tonight you can buy her this one here, this one here and this one here... everythings for sale. Fragments of uniforms, open black ruins. Dumb cunts, same dumb questions.

In every respect its important that the three are alone on the stage. If they cant be four, they certainly cant be anything else. Not for this. James Dean Bradfield, Nicky Wire, Sean Moore and a shitload of cammo netting. Sailor suits and screaming. No too-young-by-half rhythm guitarist, no sideman keys, no fucking percussionist (percussionists? Did that ever happen?) It means they struggle.

The army surplus backdrop is set dressing, not a safety net.

Sometimes, on the solos in Archives Of Pain, on the breathless chorus to Mausoleum, on every last word of Yes it sounds difficult. Bradfield seems to carry the whole thing on his shoulders. You can hear the effort. It SHOULD be an effort. It should hurt. Theres nothing about The Holy Bible...

Bobby Shmurda arrested in narcotics and weapons sting, pleads not guilty
Dec 18, 2014 4:20am | Fact Magazine

Bobby Shmurda was arrested on Wednesday as part of a long-term investigation into gang-related shootings and drug trafficking.

The ‘Hot Nigga’ rapper was one of 15 people arrested in a sting by a violence reduction task force, including G-Unit’s Sha Money XL and several members of Shmurda’s group GS9. He was reportedly sitting in a car outside Quad recording studios in Manhattan, a location famous for being the site of the 1994 non-fatal shooting of Tupac. A raid on his vehicle led to 16 weapons being confiscated, the New York Daily News reports.

Kati Cornell, a spokesperson for New Yorks Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor, confirmed the arrests, explaining that they are “the result of a long-term investigation” that uncovered “a number of violent incidents as well as narcotics trafficking.” Shmurda is now being held ahead of his Manhattan supreme court arraignment. Cornell said that her office “has a sealed indictment against a number of individuals” that will be revealed early on December 18.

It’s not the first time he’s been arrested this year in June he was indicted on weapon charges for carrying a loaded Glock handgun, and in October he was arrested for possession of marijuana.

The rapper’s Shmurda She Wrote EP came out in November, featuring his hit single plus tracks with...

Dec 18, 2014 4:15am | Fact Magazine

Ever-reliable reissue stable Dark Entries has announced a split EP of rare and out of print Detroit electro from Sam Anderson, AKA DJ Maestro.

Motor City resident Anderson learned to DJ during a stint in the Marines in the early ’80s, and on returning to Detroit he got his introduction to making and recording music with techno godfather Juan Atkins.

Distributed by Atkins’ Metroplex Records, only 500 copies were made. Later that year he followed it up with the vocoder-assisted track ’1001 Beats’.

By the end of the decade Anderson was using a bunch of different aliases to release his music, including Magnus II, under which his put out the chunkier, EBM-tinged ‘Roctronic/Space Age’ in 1993. Dark Entries’ split EP will feature both of those Nu Sound II Crew singles and all three mixes of the ‘Space Age’ single  you can hear clips of them all below.

The tracks have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley and the sleeve is designed by Eloise Leigh with original illustrations from 1988 by Kevin Mann. Each copy includes a postcard with a photo of Anderson’s Nu Sounds crew DJing in 1984. It’s out on January 13.

Dec 17, 2014 6:10pm | Brooklyn Vegan

The Colbert Report will air its final episode on Thursday night (12/18), after which Stephen Colbert (the real person, not his Report persona) will begin prepping to take over for the retiring David Letterman sometime next year. Last night (12/18) featured an appearance by Kendrick Lamar who will have the distinction of being the last-ever musical guest on the show -- unless Colbert pulls out some surprises tomorrow night. "No pressure, " Colbert told Kendrick, "but that means Paul McCartney, REM, Jack White and Nas were your opening acts." After an interview segment, Lamar performed a new, untitled song with backing from Thundercat, Terrace Martin on saxophone, and back vocals from Bilal and Anna Wise. You can watch that below.

Tonight's penultimate episode of The Colbert Report features Redeployment author Phil Klay and Thursday's finale features...the Grim Reaper? Tune in and find out. David Letterman's final The Late Show will be May 20, but reports are that Colbert may not take the host seat till September. Larry Wilmore will take over Colbert's time slot on Comedy Central. Craig Ferguson, meanwhile, will exit CBS' The Late Late Show at the end of December, with guest hosts filling in until James Corden (and bandleader Reggie Watts) take over in March.

Dec 17, 2014 6:08pm | Fact Magazine

Gunplay gives the first taste of his long-gestating debut album.

The highly anticipated debut album from Gunplay has been in limbo for the last couple of years. After some long-running legal issues and a few mixtapes, including a self-titled effort earlier this year, Living Legend looks like it is finally on the way. The album is scheduled to come out early next year, and new track ‘Scuffed Timbs’ is said to be taken from the LP.

‘Scuffed Timbs’ finds Gunplay and Maybach Music Group bawse Rick Ross trading blows over a frenetic, glitchy Timbaland instrumental. You can stream the track below.

Timbaland has had a busy few months, recently producing Rick Ross’ Jay Z-featuring ‘Movin’ Bass’ and working with his protege, Chicago rapper and singer Tink. Yesterday, the veteran hitmaker shared the video for Tink’s ‘Around The Clock‘, produced by Timbo himself. [via Stereogum]
