Coachella 2009 // The Official Lineup

Oh my! Coachella just redeemed itself. What a line-up. It’s still way too fucking hot in Indio, but this may be worth it. What are the odds that Amy Winehouse will make the trip?

People Under The Stairs // Los Angeles’ Finest

People Under The Stairs // Los Angeles Finest

Los Angeles’ Finest=Best Hip-Hop Group In America

I’m about four months off on praising the best hip-hop album of 2008, “Fun DMC”. But I’m still hooked on their 2002 classic “O.S.T.” I will beat a dead horse, but you guys who drool over Lil’ Wayne, Kanye, 50 Cent, Young Jeezy or any other of those prepackaged “rappers”, expand your horizons. If you want to hear great rhymes and beats without the bling and bullshit check out People Under The Stairs’ catalog. You will not be disappointed. BTW-you have to love West Coast rappers paying respect to the Bronx.

Question for Lil’ Wayne: How many Gangsta’s chat with Katie Couric???

The Kills // Live

The Kills // Live

The Kills are one of the best live bands out today. When they come to town they normally play at the El Rey Theatre. It’s a perfect venue for their stage show. They are touring in Germany, New Zealand and Australia in March. I imagine that they will not return to Los Angeles until 2010.

John Martyn

John Martyn
When it rains, it pours.

Colin Irwin:: Telegraph.co.uk

Singer and guitarist John Martyn, who died yesterday, had a reputation that always preceded him. A rebel in all senses, he railed against every musical cliché and genre straitjacket they tried to pin on him – annihilating the genre barriers between folk, blues, jazz, rock and avant-garde as he bullishly rejected attempts to tame him and mould him into a sellable product.
