Ladytron - Velocifero

Velocifero is brilliant. The album has "Witching Hours'" combination of dusty electro and industrial glam but it's a bit catchier - I would say pop but that would only apply if we're talking about pop radio in a nightland universe of Soviet-era housing blocks and neon highways. Best listened to in a black leather chair atop a burning building.

Ghosts is a real stand out with a "Personal Jesus" styled stomp and video.

Download it at iTunes.

Ladies and Gentlemen The Fabulous Stains

Click here for a link to a great "making of" short doc on this under-appreciated, never really released Punk Rock flick from the early '80s. I remember stumbling across parts of this on cable in the mid-80s and then seeing bootleg copies of it floating around record shops in the east village. It'll be released on DVD by Rhino in Sept. Yup, Diane Lane and Laura Dern are in it.

At the mall. Do you want to be a professional? Yeah, those are the Sex Pistols and, yes, that's Diane Lane and Laura Dern.

The B.I.D.E. Files

A.k.a. Cool psychedelic comix.

Soft focus, very nice.

Jodorowsky update

Jodorowsky teams with David Lynch's production company for King Shot. The mind boggles.
