The second part of Los Angeles’ Museum Of Contemporary Art series about the art of punk was just released and after this great episode about Black Flag a week ago, the new one deals with legendary British anarcho-punk band Crass. And like Black Flag, just their iconic band logo alone is worth a complete documentary.

Maybe you asked yourself, like myself, who’s that hauntingly gorgeous voice on some songs of Dean Blunt’s The Redeemer. Like Demon, one of favorite tracks of this record.
Well, secret revealed. It’s british folk singer Joanne Robertson and her new album will be released by (surprise, surprise) Dean Blunt & Inga Copeland‘s just established new label World Music. Listen to a new track called Heat below and some more on her soundcloud and get excited.

Earlier this year I told you about this upcoming new documentary about proto-punk band Death. As an extra teaser they developed a super entertaining website called My Dad Was In A Band, an archive of vintage bands and the dads in them. Like Hot Ice, an unbelievable prog-band with an inverted mohawk.
See some more embarrassing pictures and read hillarious stories here. 10 amusing minutes guaranteed.

Yeah, that’s a tour I’m looking forward to. San Fancisco’s Rank/Xerox teamed up with Rat Columns from Perth. Both bands playing their own vibe of Postpunk. Noisy, trashy, loud, catchy, exactly how we like it. Well, their tour starts tomorrow here in Berlin at Kastanienkeller and goes from there all over Europe. So, catch them if you have the chance. See all dates here.

Finally, summer arrived and what better way to celebrate the sun and the warm weather as have a sweet ice cream cone and listen to some Dub / Reggae tunes. Duppy Gun Productions is M. Geddes Gengras and Cameron Stallones of Sun Araw fame and since their great collaboration with The Congos last year they are totally dipped in Jamaica’s music scene. They already released two great 12″ under this moniker and a new one is coming out soon. So, try What You Would Say About Me? featuring Fyah Flames on vocals below. Pretty good.

A great new series of short documentaries about the art of punk just started. Created by filmmaker Bo Bushnell and author Bryan Ray Turcotte, author of the best-selling Fucked Up + Photocopied book, one of the most comprehensive looks into the art of 70s and 80s homemade punk rock flyers. The first episode deals with very obviously Black Flag respective Raymond Pettibon and explores the visual art that informs the legend of the band, through album art, concert flyers, and all the rest. So, see Keith Morris, Chuck Dukowski, Flea, Henry Rollins and Pettibon telling their memories.
Two more episodes are in the making. Next one will be Crass, followed by Dead Kennedys.

Listen to Glass Candy, Desire, Symmetry and of course Chromatics. Call it Electronic Music, Disco or After Dark 2, in the end it’s just a super good compilation. Get it below.
