QC FILM PLUG: LET THE RIGHT ONE IN

by greg yolen Greetings readers, and happy Halloween… Here’s to hoping this Friday’s a lot scarier than next Tuesday. Know what I’m saying? When it comes to vampires, the laws are simple: sleep days, bite nights, steer clear of garlic, sunlight, and stakes through the ticker, and call it an eternity. These haven’t changed since [...]

DEAD CONFEDERATE: WRECKING BALL

by phil miller Drawing comparisons from everyone to Nirvana, for singer Hardy Morris’s raspy vox and grungy guitar; to Kings of Leon, for the dingy production/raw southern sound; and My Morning Jacket for their live show and jamming– the truth is, Dead Confederate have a sound all to their own.

NO STONE

by cheryl santa maria The bar was really, really smoky. It was 2006 and I was sitting at the back because I had arrived late – as usual. I could hear the opening act but from where I was sitting the stage looked distorted. Will, my boyfriend, was not impressed. He was annoyed because I [...]

Do yourself a favor, pick up The Supreme Genius of King Khan And The Shrines. You can thank me later, when you’re [...]

RENDEZVOUS WITH MADNESS

by cheryl santa maria Imagine what the world would be like today if there had been no Abraham Lincoln. Or Beethoven. Or Van Gogh. Or Isaac Newton. Imagine if War and Peace had never been written. Or A Streetcar Named Desire. Or The Bell Jar. Or … Well.. I’ll stop there. I AM CITIZEN INSANE [...]

THE EFFECTS OF 333

by phil miller In the spirit of Halloween, one of my favorite bands, the kick ass Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have just released details of a new album called The Effects of 333.

DARGERISM

by emily smith Dargerism: Haunted, Self Taught, Mythical, Twisted, Introspective, Tripped Out Henry Darger (1892-1973) was an emotionally tormented reclusive artist whose work is more shocking than crafted.
