If there’s a current song that we’re jamming that sounds exactly like our sophomore year of high school, it’d be “Seasick” by Free Kitten — the indie super group featuring Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, Boredoms’ Yoshimi, and ex-Pussy Galore Read more

Escape Club, “Wild Wild West” (Atlantic Records, 1988)

Rastafarian cowboys who have a thing for arms and legs, but not bodies. That’s pretty much the premise for this bizarre clip for Escape Club‘s 1988 smash “Wild Wild West.” But when you think about it, maybe Escape Club were onto Read more

Boredoms, Super Roots 9 (Thrill Jockey, 2008)

The single, 40-minute track on Super Roots 9 chronicles a Boredoms live performance from Christmas Eve 2004 in Japan. Rightly so: it begins with an extended choral section supplied by the choir that performed with the band, and it brings the record in on the hush of a holiday night. Or at least that’s what we imagine. Which is fine, because if the Read more

Constantines, Kensington Heights (Arts & Crafts, 2008)

Listen: “Brother Run Them Down”
[audio:http://www.detour-mag.com/audio/BrotherRunThemDown.mp3]

With raw power and emotion dangling from their flanneled sleeves, Constantines write songs for the workingman; tunes that would sound just as great blasting from tractor trailers as they would a Toyota Prius. Where there’s spilled blood and sweat, the Cons are gonna be there, playing hard and singing loud, howling at the moon. So not surprisingly, on Read more

Dinah East (Gene Nash, 1970)

Released the same year as Michael Sarne’s Myra Breckinridge, this is a lower rent but far more successful interpretation of similar themes. The film opens with aging starlet Dinah East dying in the back of her limousine. When a lecherous mortician Read more

Zombie Zombie, “Driving This Road Until Death Sets You Free” (Versatile, 2007)

Swivel arm battle grip, yo. That’s Snow Job in the red beard; in the “GI Joe” cartoon of the 1980s, they had him speaking with a slight British accent, or maybe it was South African. He definitely pronounced “Again” as if it was spelled “A-gain.” Here he’s leading Read more

Frontier Justice 18: Yelle Magnifico

By Johnny Loftus

When I was living in Detroit, there were nights and early to mid-mornings spent in the presence of epic DJs. In art galleries, strange basements, the blank-faced shells of warehouses, and even a few legitimate clubs, the room often blew up. Hands flew, women lost mastery of their limbs’ movement, and dudes raised drinks and bobbed necks to Read more
