Alex Turner’s Mic-dropping Brit Awards Speech

February 23rd, 2014

Arctic Monkeys racked up again at the Brit Awards this year, taking home Best British Group for the fourth time and its well-deserved third Best British Album for AM. Lead singer Alex Turner used the occasion to drop an irony-laced speech that was a winking piss-take on the “state” of rock ‘n roll. Reactions have […]

Prince is Crazy, Contradicts Himself, Previews New 3rdEyeGirl Song

January 28th, 2014

To paraphrase Walt Whitman: Does Prince contradict himself? Very well, then. He is large, and he contains multitudes.

Fiona Apple Tosses Heckler, Plays New Song

October 7th, 2013

Come on, people. You know Fiona Apple is very sensitive. She does not have thick enough skin for heckling, especially when it’s about her appearance.

Beck swoops in and finishes the fight

November 20th, 2009

My favorite piece of news in the past week is Beck’s musical response to that clueless buffoon from The Fiery Furnaces, who tried to insult Radiohead, blog-style, but missed the point completely. And in attempting to cover his ass retroactively, took a swipe at Beck. Well, Radiohead, in their lofty chairs of utter superiority, ignored […]
