The Melvins Will Tour With Cartoon Dalek?

Posted by Molli Fire on Thursday, 5April07

the Speakeasy PR newsletter announced today that The Melvins will return to the road with a mid-September through October 2007 run of dates. but there is something different about this tour – the opening act. it’s a bizarre cartoon character…. read on:

What do Jon Spencer, Grant Hart (Husker Du), The Melvins and David Yow have in common? Dalek.
Dalek, the pop artist best known for his weapon-wielding rodent, alongside Amphetamine Reptile’s Tom Hazelmeyer, brought all of the above musicians together for a soundtrack to animated versions of his highly sought after works. The result is “A Purge Of Dissidents” which is both a CD, DVD and 30+ page book. Release is now JUNE 5 on Ipecac. The animated soundtrack will serve as the opening “act” on The Melvins fall tour.


it’s actually not the first time that the band has collaborated with a cartoon friend. they have also added their eccentric style to Qee –



















Juxtapoz Magazine recently attended Dalek’s latest art opening and there are lots of fantastic pictures to gawk at on the Jux website as well as the Gallery website.


Dalek has an exhibit open at the Jonathan Levine Gallery in NYC that will run until April 28th. Mars 1 also has an exhibit at the Gallery that will run until April 28th 2007.

but then, how could you expect anything less from these guys –

Primal Scream, Beastie Boys, Orb At Bestival

Posted by Molli Fire on Thursday, 5April07

Bestival in the UK has announced the headliner for all three nights of the festival. taking place 7-9 September 2007, The Chemical Brothers, Beastie Boys, and Primal Scream will each headline one night on the main stage.
apparently, Primal Scream were recently named “Godlike Genius” with an NME Award this year.
Boy those Beasties sure are getting around this year! they used to have a powerful live show, with tons of energy and all the warmth of their recordings. hopefully they are aging like fine spirits.

Bestival is a great festival too. they are pretty alternative in their choices of artists, socially concious, supportive of activist campaigns at the event, and very environmentally conscious. the Isle of Wight is chosen for its natural beauty, and the festival organizers take extra steps to preserve the area that they are using. they use Carbon offsetting methods as well as reducing waste and emissions as much as possible.
