We’ve uploaded a new feature on Loose Lips Sink Ships. Girl Band are one of the most thrilling new bands I’ve heard in ages, their records and their live shows delivering a beautiful headfuck that will electrify neophytes and avowed (and long deaf) noisers alike. DO. NOT. MISS.
The current issue of MOJO, with an awesome shot of Patti Smith on the cover, also features a great piece on the rise of the American underground in 1985, featuring excellent pieces on Husker Du, Meat Puppets, Butthole Surfers and more. I interviewed Thurston Moore for the feature one just what it was like to be at the vanguard of the American underground noise uprising at that time, and on the making of Sonic Youth’s glorious Bad Moon Rising. Be quick, it’ll be disappearing from the shelves soon.
And last month I chose my ten favourite Curtis Mayfield tracks and talked about them for the Guardian. Maybe you agree with me, maybe you don’t – doesn’t matter, the comments for this feature are now closed!
