Tomita – Snowflakes Are Dancing (1974)

Debussy’s “Clair De Lune (Bergamasque 3)” and “Arabesque No. 1” become ethereal cybernetic pieces from some past future ideal. Shifting and panning across the stereo spectrum, they sound full of hope, believing in the utopic notion of technology as a democratic agent of social progress and equity. Perhaps Moog would become the first machine ‘of loving grace’…

Dead Actors Society

Each Oscars ceremony always includes an ‘In Memoriam’ segment, paying tribute to those in the movie world who have passed away in that particular year. Rarely mentioned are those fringe-dwellers, those faces you recognise but can’t put a name to, those people who have never been invited to the world’s largest smugfest…

Drive (2011)

So once again, I’ll try to clean up the mess left by the inane film marketing departments with their dollar sign eyes and tell it to you straight up; contrary to the posters and trailers you may have seen, if you are a fan of the Fast and Furious movies, you will probably hate this film…

When You’re Strange (2010)

Doors fans will get a kick out of some juicy, never-before-seen footage of Morrison, as well as some nice information about the band in the studio. What we really needed was something a tad more substantial; Some talking heads discussing their memories of the time and their relationship with Jim and the band would have been priceless…

The Origin Of The Species

Lancelot Link, however, is still one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. And before anyone writes in to complain, yes, I know that dressing animals up as humans and making them act like this isn’t a common thing anymore, and is considered by many to be cruel. But I can’t change the past, and it’s not happening anymore, so shut up and let me enjoy this absolute gem of pure whacked out joy…

J.J. Cale – Naturally (1971)

Even in this era of fashionable ageing-rocker-mega-tours, Cale has always remained a kind of mystery man, despite a cult status that could easily be capitalised on. Instead, he has chosen the quiet dignity of going about his bluesy business outside the parameters expected of musicians of his ilk. He has become a timeless enigmatic Mr. Cool that the Claptons and Knopflers can only envy and do covers of…

The Crazies (2010)

The residents of a small Iowa town have had their water supply tainted by a military plane carrying a biological agent that has crashed into the local river. The toxin is designed to disable a population, and that’s exactly what it does to the poor folks of Ogden Marsh who begin to turn on each other with cold, murderous rage. The town is rapidly quarantined and it becomes the mission of a group of survivors to hike cross-country and get the hell out of toxic Dodge…
