In the ’80 and ‘90s Alternative Rock Gods Dead Can Dance and Cocteau Twins were two of the UK’s hottest exports. Both bands split in the mid ‘90s leaving seminal musical legacies. The male leaders of these indie supergroups, Brendan Perry (DCD) and Robin Guthrie (CT) each have a new release available on May 24th, 2011. Brendan Perry’s second solo project, Ark (The End Records), continues Mr. Perry’s Medieval meets modern musical ... Read More

Here at BUST we love cooking shows, recipe blogs and generally anything food related, (see our Food issue out now) but honestly, this is THE BEST cooking demo EVER!! Meet the Vegan Black Metal chef as he demonstrates how to make Pad Thai, it's the best thing I've seen in a long while.
Yes he sings the entire 14 minute demo, and head bangs while the "Heat of Satan" cooks the "glorious Pad Thai!" I hope Martha Stewart invites him on her show real soon.
You need to a ... Read More

Have you ever worried about getting old? I’m pretty sure everyone over the age of 10 has, and director Mark Wexler certainly does. He thinks about it so much that he set out to find some answers about longevity, and his new documentary film, How To Live Forever is an interesting look at aging in our society. I asked my pal, Ari Seth Cohen who created the inspiring blog, Advanced Style to check out the movie with me.
While some of Wexlers concerns about aging ... Read More

Before The Real World, Horrible Housewives or Jersey Shore Jerks, there was An American Family. Back in the early 70’s, the idea of reality TV was born when a documentary filmmaker decided to ask the Loud family from Santa Barbara California, if he could film their daily lives and air it on PBS. Anyone who grew up in the 70s will remember the long, sometimes fascinating, sometimes boring, grainy episodes of American Family that aired, and the two characters ... Read More

I just love what Merrill Garbus is doing with her band, TUne-Yards. With her way out tribal sounds and kooky face paints, the energy is just fantastic! She's clearly fearless, and I can't wait to see her perform live. Check out this amazing video for Bizness, off her latest album, w h o k i l l on 4AD records, then go see her if she comes to your area.

This clip from the forthcoming Hot Sauce Committee is hilarious! When I heard there was a new Beastie's video, I thought "it would be cool if they had actors playing them, like that Jon Spencer video way back in the day," and guess what? That's exactly what they did, starring Will Farrell, Jack Black, Elijah Wood (doing a spot on Ad-Rock!), John C. Reilly (Come to think of it, John C. Reilly was in that Blues Explosion video too! ), Danny McBride and ... Read More

Today a very special box of books came into our office.
We’ve been waiting very patiently for Tina Fey’s new book, Bossypants, and man are we stoked and honored to be mentioned on its pages! I plan on reading the entire book immediately but so far, I’ve laughed out loud a few times at the random pages I’ve perused. A long time ago (2004), before Tina was the media mogul she is now, we put her on our cover, and we’ve always remembered ... Read More

When I was a kid, I used to assign gender to different car models, (I did this also to numbers. 5 and 7 were girls, don't ask me why). So of course I fell for this completely ridiculous product, Car Eyelashes, for when you want your car to look especially girlie. They even have glitter eyeliner strips, for when you want your car to look like a drag queen. It's so dumb, yet I must have it. Too bad they don't blink like Herbie the Love Bug!
