!! OMG, disco dreams come true: 'Travesty' by Jimmy Somerville !!

We are excited to share this new music from legendary singer/songwriter Jimmy Somerville (Bronski Beat, the Communards). Jimmy is best known for the Bronski Beat hit "Smalltown Boy" as well as his impeccable and original covers of disco classics like "Don't Leave Me This Way" and "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)."

Now Jimmy has made his own disco record of original music, and the lead single "Travesty" sounds mighty real to us. In his words:

"I've finally made the disco album I always wanted to and never thought I could. If I was 15 again I'd buy it, sit on my bed, slowly open the gate-fold, slide out the vinyl, place it on the turntable then jump off the bed and imagine someone just passed me a tambourine...I'd be in heaven! The horns, the strings, the bass, the guitars, the drums, the backing vocals and the melody....the escape. So open your ears embrace the groove and pay homage to an all too easily derided sound ... I LOVE Disco!"

You can purchase "Travesty" on October 28 from all major digital retailers. The new album Homage will be out next year.

!! OMG, bow down to Vulvatron, bitches! It's GWAR's new female vocalist !!

Screen Shot 2014-09-18 at 7.40.58 PM.png

The 'splash zone' at the GWAR concert is about to get a whole new meaning -- if you CATCH MY DRIFT!

GWAR have crowned a new front woman (a co-front person technically, joining vocalist Blothar) tastefully named -- VULVATRON! ! !

It's no secret that metal's demographics still skew heavily towards straight white cis men, but this decade has marked a definite shift; audiences are diversifying. But there is still a lot of work to be done. Representation matters, and now, all of a sudden, there's a big, brash, bold new female personality on stage with a legendary band. Moreover, she's just as gross and goofy as her male bandmates, whether she's slaying dinosaurs or disemboweling Nazi skinheads onstage or drenching her minions with the aforementioned boob-blood (a move which, as a bit of trivia, references Slymenstra's past crotch-spewing exploits).

Vulvatron's costume is skimpy, but so are those of her bandmates; it's not a Gwar show unless everyone's arse is out. She occupies a powerful role. She's nobody's girlfriend, or groupie or background dancer; Vulvatron is in charge. She gets to be a monster instead of a princess, and that is immensely important for younger girls who are just starting to explore heavy metal.

There really is no better way into my heart than disembowelling Nazi skinheads for entertainment purposes. Or boob blood. Vulvatron had me at "Hello." Welcome aboard the role model club!

!! OMG, WATCH: Kylie joins Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds for 'Where The Wild Roses Grow (Live at Koko)' !!

Screen Shot 2014-09-16 at 8.48.07 PM.png

During the making of 20,000 Days on Earth, the upcoming Nick Cave doc -- Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds were asked to play an intimate club show at Koko in London, a beautiful old Victorian music hall.

While the crew were filming the scenes with Nick and Kylie Minogue in Brighton, Nick asked her if she'd like to come and sing their infamous duet. Kylie jumped at the chance, and a few weeks later walked out on stage and performed Where The Wild Roses Grow live with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds for the first time in 15 years. Check it out below!

!! OMG, LISTEN TO THIS: Stream Erasure's new album 'The Violet Flame' produced by Richard X !!


Erasure have released The Violet Flame, their first album since last year's holiday album, Snow Globe.

The band (who've worked with producer Richard X on this) says it's been inspired by everything from Eurotrance to Giorgio Moroder's sound.

"I really love all his work with Donna Summer," Bell says. "I love the feeling of those arpeggiated synths, rhythms just going on. Or the sequences going on and vocal on top. That's sublime. Especially with Donna. She reached her peak with that. That was the idea behind Paradise. I was channeling Donna quite a bit -- and Grace Jones, as well."
Some great influences! Check out the album stream, in full, below!
