New Wave: Turning Rebellion into Money

None "Don't Call it Punk." -- Seymour Stein, President of Sire Records, 1977. Few today would use the expression "New Wave" to describe early '70s proto-punk bands like the Stooges and the New York Dolls, but it was for them that the term was initially applied in the music papers. Later, when media outlets began covering the CBGB bands, the label lingered, often used interchangeably with "punk". Soon the British media were also oscillating between the two tags in describing their home-grown...

This Week In Trailers: Life After Flash, It’s a Hard Truth Aint It, Chasing the Moon, Concrete Kids, Stay Free: The Story of The Clash

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we reconnect with the O.G. Flash Gordon, watch a trailer for a podcast, celebrate Apollo 11, remember what it was like to sneak out ...

This Week in Photography Books: Tony Fouhse

Did you hear about the guy who choked out a mountain lion? Some Colorado-mountain-runner-guy got attacked by a cougar, from behind, and fought back. The second I read it, (the story made national news, and you’ve likely already heard about it by now,) I thought, “I bet that guy does Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.” Or martial arts of some sort. I should know, because last week, within 24 hours, I found myself put in two potentially neck-crushing choke holds, (a rear-naked and a guillot...

Three Chords and the Truth: The Ramones, the Sex Pistols and the Clash

None As much as punk exists as a subculture, style, attitude, and artistic aesthetic, it is—first and foremost—a musical phenomenon. But what constitutes the sound of punk rock? And how far and wide should the net be cast in capturing songs that can credibly be designated punk? Can punk be mapped when the borders and districting are so regularly contested geographically, historically, and artistically? In assessing the journey of punk—from its foundations to its mutations and manifestations—cri...

Hear How Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” Would Sound If Sung by Johnny Cash, David Bowie, Janis Joplin, Frank Sinatra & 38 Other Artists

I consider Freddy Mercury and Michael Jackson as the greatest performers of all time. Their vocal abilities are what I look up to as a vocalist.  - Anthony Vincent Anthony Vincent, the creator of Ten Second Songs, has a flowing mane, a lean physique, and the cocksure manner of a 20th century rock god. He also spends hours in his home studio, peering at a computer monitor through reading glasses. His latest effort, above, Queen’s "Bohemian Rhapsody" in the style of 42 other artists, could...

The Top 10 ’80s Movie Soundtracks

The top 10 ’80s movie soundtracks Music happens to be one of the most important aspects of a movie. Take Star Wars or Harry Potter, for example. The theme music is one of the most memorable aspects of both those films. If it weren’t for the soundtracks, some films wouldn’t even be watchable. The ’80s were an especially interesting time, sonically speaking. That’s when MTV rose to popularity. In the early ’80s, punk rock was still going strong. By the end of the decade, new wave and metal band...

Hear The Previously Unreleased Demo For The Clash’s “This Is England”

The Clash had a ridiculously great run; few bands have ever strung together four consecutive albums as fiery and purposeful and great as those first four Clash records. But when they fell off, they fell off. The Clash recorded their final album, 1985's Cut The Crap, after co-leader Mick Jones had left the band, and … More »

Rachid Taha has followed Joe Strummer to rock the casbah in the hereafter

Punk, Algerian chaabi music, Rai, rock and techno: Rachid Taha had it all going on. He drew inspiration from the music of North Africa, New Orleans jazz, delta blues, The Clash and Elvis Presley. He cut his teeth spinning albums as a DJ and playing in a number of bands as he came of age in France. He worked with famed producers like Don Was and Steve Hillage and traveled in the same circles as David Bowie. In his later years, he was slowed down by muscular dystrophy, but he continued to rock,...

Pianist Henry Butler dead at 69

If you love New Orleans-style piano or simply subscribe to joy, the music of Henry Butler would be welcome in your home. Gospel, old school rhythm and blues, Caribbean-tinged jazz and, of course, that signature syncopated New Orleans sound made renowned by musical luminaries like Jellyroll Morton and Professor Longhair--Butler could play it all. And he did. His playing challenges the ears, turning well-known standards up on their ends to show listeners what's inside of them. Sadly, we're a...

Hear “London Is Burning” From New Joe Strummer Demos & Rarities Comp

If Joe Strummer had never done anything outside of the Clash, that would've been enough. That band, they're one of the absolute Greats, one of those groups that is so iconic and influential that Strummer's legend in rock history was easily solidified by that alone. But though his releases were more sporadic after the Clash … More »

Vibrant, Colorful, and Eclectic Wedding Inspiration

Inspired by the very couple pictured here, Chris and Chrissie, this vibrant, colorful, and eclectic wedding inspiration is so perfectly reflective of this artist and musician who are so incredibly in love. The designer, Erica of Folie à Deux Events, turned to her own artistic muses from the art and music worlds and very quickly landed on Frida Kahlo and Joe Strummer, lead singer of The Clash, to draw even more inspiration for  Ana Teresa  to capture. Erica explained her inspiration and design ev...

'The Clash on the Clash' Is a Smorgasbord of Contradictions

In September 1983, completely against character, Clash founder and guitarist Mick Jones showed up for rehearsal on time, only to be sacked by Joe Strummer, with a nod of assent from Paul Simonon. The drama and hilarity that preceded this end-of-an-era incident is well-documented: see Pat Gilbert's Passion Is a Fashion (2004), Chris Salewicz's Redemption Song: The Ballad of Joe Strummer (2006), the exhaustive work of Marcus Gray, two dozen titles by Clash-de-...

“How to Look Punk” in 13 Easy Steps: A 1977 Style Guide

“Punk rock died when the first kid said, ‘Punk’s not dead, punk’s not dead.’” So drawls poet and songwriter David Berman, tongue firmly in cheek, on the Silver Jews’ song “Tennessee.” If we were to take the reference seriously, we could trace it back to crude Scottish punk band The Exploited’s 1981 album Punk’s Not Dead—the title track written in response to anarchist punks Crass, who in 1978 declared “Punk is Dead” in a polemical minute-and-a-half burst of vitriol. Some sample lyrics: Yes tha...
