Depeche Mode Get ‘Spiritual’ in New York on 9/11

Nothing could be more fitting than a show on September 11 in New York City, wrapped around Depeche Mode‘s 14th studio album Spirit. Partly fueled with political angst, it might be hard for some to think the world is in a better place 16 years later, but Spirit isn’t Depeche Mode sending negative vibes out to the world. As with anything the band has done in their nearly 40-year career, there’s always some darkness, and...

The Dead Daisies Are ‘Making Some Noise’

Comprised of former members of legendary bands such as Whitesnake, Mötley Crüe, Foreigner and Dio, The Dead Daisies are the prototypical example of a supergroup. Formed in 2012 in Sydney, Australia by guitarist David Lowy and vocalist Jon Stevens, the band has gone through multiple personnel changes in their relatively brief five years of existence. But after witnessing their recent show at New York’s Highline Ballroom (August 17), it’s difficult to believe that the current...

‘Camp’ is Back in Session: ‘Sleepaway Camp’ Star, Trilogy Come to New York

Jason Voorhees. Michael Myers. Freddy Krueger. Angela Baker. Yes, Angela Baker. While some people might scoff at the idea of including her (him?) in the same breath with the horror icons of Friday the 13th, Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street, respectively, don’t tell that to those who were in attendance at the Sleepaway Camp Trilogy at the popular Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, N.Y. on July 28. The event was organized by Retro Picture Show,...

A Damned Documented Place in Punk History

Laser-focused on The Clash or the Sex Pistols, punk history might have forgotten one of the most influential bands of all. The Damned were the first to put out a punk single in the U.K. Even before the Sex Pistols’ ill-fated 1978 U.S. tour (or The Clash coming to America a year later), The Damned already had nearly a week’s worth of gigs at CBGB, alongside Patti Smith and The Dead Boys, notched away. Recently...

Patricia Field’s Big Adventure: Fashion Icon’s Art Gallery Garb

Patricia Field just closed her store after 50 years in February and less than a month later was already embarking on her next venture. Debuted during a three-day exhibit at Howl! Happening in New York’s East Village, Field gave a peek into her latest project, an art gallery fashion concept tied to her website. Curated by Field, the updated site features one-of-a-kind clothing by artists, designers and longtime collaborators, including Scooter LaForge, Tom Knight, Jody...

The Pogues Make Beautiful Whiskey Together

Celtic punk rockers The Pogues like whiskey. Who knew? Maybe it’s those imbibe-induced Pogue tales like “Streams of Whiskey” and “Whiskey You’re the Devil” or its decades-inebriated frontman Shane MacGowan. Even though most band members don’t touch the juice these days, it was only appropriate to have an Irish Whiskey in their name. Royal Flush got a first peak, and taste (neat, please), of The Pogues Irish Whiskey at Paddy Reilly’s Pub in New York City...

Samsung Unpacked Event Reveals Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5

Last week, Samsung unveiled their latest additions to their smartphone line up in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Each of these phones will share practically the same new build and new set of Samsung-added functionality. The now larger 5.7 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen will add more screen real-estate while not adding too much additional bulk to the devices themselves. Yet Samsung’s expectedly brilliant display is...

The second album recorded by King Diamond following his departure from Mercyful Fate (along with bandmates Michael Denner and Timi Hansen) in 1985, Abigail tells the tale of a young couple, Miriam Natias and Jonathan La’Fey, who suffer...
