Eazy E like sunday morning

blacknasty

According to Too Cool To Die, Black Nasty is

the most funny, sick, offensive rappers out there—imagine—a thirty something refugee from 1991, replete with acid wash jeans, handling numchucks, outside your local 7-11, blasting NWA and Guns’n’Roses, testing out some of gangster raps on passerbys inbetween hits on the crack pipe.”

This is a good album cover ! Eazy is a tribute song to rap hero Eazy-E from NWA, with Bonnie Prince Billy singing out the samples from Commodores ‘Easy Like Sunday Morning’.

Red Rag to a Bull

reid_hirst4print

Red Rag To A Bull is a “public service site funded by a cartell of rich and powerfull light industrialists who wish to remain annonymous.”

Turns out those wishing to remain anonymous include Jamie Reid, James Cauty, and Billy Childish and one of their purposes is to raise the £200 for Cartrain, a 16 year old artist who Damien Hirst demanded money from for using his diamond skull in a print. Another is‘as “a creative exercise that mocked and exposed the idiocy an overbearing and thoughtless approach to copyright control that creates fear and censorship in the arts.”

The shop shuts down today, but have a look anyway.

Animal Collective’s potential chart topper

animal_collective_says_boo

Animal Collective’s latest album, Merriweather Post Pavillion, has been getting a tremendous amount of play in my walkman (iPOD, iPhone, whatever).  The first time I listened, I thought I should take some ecstasy.  The second time I listened, I took some ecstasy (that’s a lie, I don’t know where to find any. Faded counts right?).  The third time and continuing to the present, I have concluded that this is a perfect album for sober and demented ears alike.  One song, Bluish, has stuck out to me since it is seriously the most Billboard friendly song on the album.  Not that that is a bad thing, the song is just that awesome.  I can only imagine the advertisers and brands (MTV’s hills/city, Teen Vogue, Revlon/haircare/womanly goods) clamoring to get usage rights for it.  Anyway, if you haven’t heard it, now you can.  Go buy the album.

Animal Collective, Bluish

A sociological perspective on graffiti

espo-ny-times

Gregory J. Snyder writes in his newly published book, Graffiti Lives: Beyond the Tag in New York’s Urban Underground

“In its purest form, graffiti is a democratic art form that revels in the American Dream.”
