$5 gigs, not $10m deals: the story of US punk label Dischord Records

With no contracts and cheap releases from the likes of Fugazi and Minor Threat, Ian MacKaye and comrades rejected booze, drugs and riches to give US punk a conscience. They look back on 40 years of righteous noise“Do you know what I call an un-played record?” asks Ian MacKaye. “A piece of fucking trash. It’s paper and plastic. So if I make something, I want to make sure it adds value.”Thankfully, as the co-founder and co-owner of Dischord Records, MacKaye has made the very opposite of landfill i...

'She made music jump into 3D': Wendy Carlos, the reclusive synth genius

She went platinum by plugging Bach into 20th-century machines, and was soon working with Stanley Kubrick. But prejudice around her gender transition pushed Wendy Carlos out of sightThis summer, an 80-year-old synthesiser pioneer suddenly appeared online. She had been silent for 11 years, but now something had appeared that she just wouldn’t tolerate. “Please be aware there’s a purported ‘biography’ on me just released,” wrote Wendy Carlos on the homepage of her 16-bit-friendly website, a Siamese...

Trumps Reaktion auf Bidens Wahlsieg überrascht keineswegs

Wenige Augenblicke bevor in zahlreichen US-Städten Feierlichkeiten anlässlich Joe Bidens Wahlsieg ausbrachen, twitterte der amtierende Präsident: „ICH HABE DIESE WAHL GEWONNEN, UND DAS MIT GROßEM VORSPRUNG!“ Es wird wohl niemanden überraschen, dass Trump sich weigert, Bidens Triumph anzuerkennen. Immerhin ist die Amtszeit des amtierenden Präsidenten durch White Supremacy, der Behauptung von der Vorherrschaft der Weißen, und regelrechten Lügen gekennzeichnet. Das Wahlergebnis wurde Samst...

Danny Elfman is “Happy,” Which Makes Me Happy, and Quite Frankly I’m Worried About Both of Us

Oh shit, it’s happening. After years of me wanting more Boingo or more Elfman or something, he’s got a new single out. Not to mention an appropriate music video to go along with. And the thing is…Danny Elfman can be quite disturbed and disturbing. But he can compose musical scores that you might not even realize were him they were so…delightful and “normal.” (This is not a put down in the least.) Like Big Fish? Okay, well, that was Tim Burton, so the first guess is always Elfman with Burton. ...
