MANIAC MEAT

Posted in Dirt with tags , , , on July 29, 2010 by bertrum

Tobacco AKA Tom Fec of Black Moth Super Rainbow has released his new video for ‘Grape Aerosmith’. Its probably the most bizarre promo since M.I.A’s ‘Born Free‘. That isn’t a very long time, so what is with the trend for blowing up brains of ginger children and bits of bacon rearing themselves from a slightly distracted C.E.O’s head?. I don’t know where M.I.A fits in to this theory but it must be something to do with Scientology. Beck features on this track and he’s the best artist ever to have tripped into this world via a space gremlin ridin’ on the back of a meteor. That’s what Scientology is about, right?

Martin Brothers – Steal Drums

Posted in Tech, Techno, We are not a rock band with tags , , , , on July 29, 2010 by Montagano

The Martin Brothers (who aren’t actually brothers at all) return with their latest killer on Dirtybird. Over the years they’ve popped up with epic tunes on Claude Von Stroke’s infamous label – and now they blast us to smithereens with Steal Drums. One for the later hours, this has a bit of a nursery rhyme feel to it, until all hell breaks loose when it drops and turns into a full-on bass assault. On a loud soundsystem this rocks.

My first encounter with the duo was a few years ago when they released ‘Stoopit’, a track that I fell in love with. It became apparent that is was a bit of a ‘Marmite tune’ – people either loved it or hated it (maybe hate is a bit of a strong word to use but still). Whatever – it used to go off when I dropped it, so the proof as they say, is in the pudding. Go check out the rest of the Steal Drum release, plus their other releases here (Duck Face is badass too). Otherwise download Stoopit below and have a mongtastic time!

Could it be? New Daft Punk tracks from Tron?

Posted in Film, soundtracks, Video, We are not a rock band with tags , , , , on July 28, 2010 by Montagano

So some tracks appeared on Fairtiliser last week, claiming to be from the score of the new Tron movie (which, for those of you who’ve been locked in a cupboard for the last year, has been made by the demi-gods that are Daft Punk). Over the past year, numerous tracks have been leaked claiming to be the work of Daft Punk – we actually fell for one of them here. We’re pretty much resigned to the fact that we’ll just have to wait until later for the film to come out before we get a good earful of the soundtrack, but for now we can at least debate over these. Surely this has to be THE most anticipated movie soundtrack of all time??

So – click below, take a listen and see what you think. It’s pretty eerie, movie type stuff – and is pretty hard to tell whether it’s actually Daft Punk or not.

http://fairtilizer.com/track/135056

One thing that COULD come out of them doing the soundtrack for Tron (I’m actually praying for this), is that they might embark on one more world tour in 2011! If they do, you can bet your balls we shall be there in numbers.

Finally – for all you die hard fans out there – we have an amazing little treat for you. Whilst on Facebook the other day I spotted this INCREDIBLE link. This you have to watch. It’s Daft Punk playing a gig 15 years ago. I shit you not. No suits, no helmets. It’s amazing.

15 years ago they were doing this. 15 years ago I had long hair and was listening to grunge.

Smug Face

Posted in bands, We are not a rock band with tags , , , on July 27, 2010 by keifallen

I’m back! I haven’t written a post for a long long time, but now am up and running with a lovely Mini Mac. So what I was planning on doing today was to try and squeeze a lot of music that I think deserves a listen, into this one post. It’s a easy way for me to include it all in one. But on reflection, it is lazy, and i believe that all of these tracks and artists deserve their own post.

So first up, is the track featured in the annoying Nikon advert with smugface Robbie Williams, but its a blessing in disguise as I love the track, and the rest of the album is fantastic. The band, well, artist, is Radical Face, who is one half of Electric President, who’re pretty fucking amazing. Anyway, check out the whole track, not the 30second advert sample, and hit up spotify for the whole album or go buy it.

A-Trak SPEAKS

Posted in Festival, Interviews, mix, We are not a rock band with tags , , , , , , on July 23, 2010 by ksimsek

A-Trak is a producer/remixer extraordinaire. Of course, you already know this as it’s impossible to have a night out without hearing at least one track that this Canadian music maestro has somehow tweaked in to something awesome. We Are Not a Rock Band caught up with him to find out what one of the most in demand names in the industry has been up to, what’s coming next for him, his label and his side project Duck Sauce. Oh and to get answers to the questions that really matter, like what the most listened to track on his iTunes is. He says he can’t tell us that. We suspect that might be as it’s something awful. God knows we’re all guilty of it.

How to make a daft punk helmet in 17 months

Posted in Trailer, Uncategorized, Video, We are not a rock band with tags , , on July 22, 2010 by Knockturnal

Quite possibly the best thing I’ve ever seen! This guy needs to start mass producing these, they would make him a very rich man! Watch how Harrison Krix of Volpin Props replicated the iconic gold Daft Punk helmet worn by Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo.

In other Daft Punk related news the latest trailer for Tron Legacy went live last night, check it here.

Erol Alkan Hard Summer Mix

Posted in Club Night, electro, mix with tags , , , on July 20, 2010 by Knockturnal

One of the high lights (If not THE high light) of my trip to the Miami WMC in March was the Hard Pool Party, especially Erol Alkan’s set. So you can imagine my delight when  I realised he was providing a live 60 minute promo mix for next months Hard Summer Festival in LA. Is it necessary for me to tell you that the mix is Killer? No. I didn’t think so… I’ve been having a bit of trouble finding the full track list, I’ve got most of it but if anyone out there can fill in the blanks it would be greatly appreciated!

The full line up for Hard is ridiculously good. Featuring a who’s who in electronic music (many of them WANARB favourites) span over 12 hours across two massive stages. I genuinely feel sick that I can’t be there!
