LONDON EDGE FASHION SHOW THIS WEEKEND!

 ROCK N ROLL, PUNK N RETRO FASHION SHOW RETURNS TO LONDON THIS WEEKEND!!

LondonEdge’s 29th show sees the return of the celebrated LondonEdge Fashion Show

 

2nd-4th February 2014

London Olympia 

 

Catering to a group of the most creative and exciting niches in apparel, footwear and accessories, LondonEdge is the only show worldwide dedicated to this very specific sector of the fashion industry, welcoming in a host of left centre, daring and statement brands, exhibitors, media and visitors.

 

Dominating the trade show scene for 14 years, the show is split into two notional areas, Original and Fashion.  LondonEdge Original represents over 200 hard-edged, punk, rock, goth and tattoo inspired brands where as LondonEdge Fashion houses over 150 rock n roll, vintage, retro, pin up, burlesque and rockabilly collections.  With both areas heaving with clothing, accessories, footwear and beauty brands, there truly is something for everyone. 

 

Alongside the ever-popular themed areas, lounges and complimentary hairstyling stands, this February 2014 LondonEdge is pleased to announce the return of their entertainment acme, the LondonEdge Fashion Show.

 

Absent for the past two seasons and back by popular demand, attendees will be treated to two different fashion shows, each showing twice a day on the centre stage and no doubt pulling in crowds of exhibitors, buyers and visitors alike.

 

Excitement is already building that the highlight of the LondonEdge entertainment menu is back with more & bigger brands than ever! Representing the vintage, retro and kitsch  styles at LondonEdge are renowned brands Bettie Page, Hell Bunny, Voodoo Vixen and Purplish London. On behalf of the edgier LondonEdge, there is plenty of alternative, dark and gothic apparel and accessories on offer including Spin Doctor, Queen of Darkness, Kreepsville 666, Jaw Breaker and Phaze. 

 

Catering to all, Banned Apparel, Dead Threads, Echo3 and Iron Fist are also on the list for this one off show and will indeed prove eye catching during the performance and on the trade show floor. 

 

Entertainment aside, this unique global show is dedicated to short order merchandise, with  an excellent reputation for attracting a high percentage of overseas buyers and for onsite order-writing. 

 

The biggest and best show of its kind, the rock n roll, cool and kooky styles of the exhibitors is met year after year with an exciting buzz and positive atmosphere and with this host of eclectic brands on the catwalk, lively and enticing music and professionally chorographic performances this season will be no exception! More news to follow.

 

Feb 2nd – 4th, The National Hall, Olympia, Hammersmith Road, London, W14 8UX

The album, originally released in October 1979, was the first album to top the ‘Independent Album Chart’ and his last album before ‘Antmania’ struck, which saw Adam becoming one of the most recognizable faces in Britain and a National Treasure with Kings Of The Wild Frontier. After the performance of Dirk Wears White Sox the band will do a set of favourite hits and songs from his latest album  Adam Ant Is The BlueBlack Hussar In Marrying The Gunners’s Daughter.

Adam has come along way since leaving Hornsey College of Art and having the Sex Pistols play their debut gig supporting his first band Bazooka Joe. His illustrious career has included picking up Brit Awards; Ivor Novello Awards; had Grammy nominations; being voted ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ by MTV viewers;  the first VJ (video Jockey) on MTV; written a best selling autobiography Stand And Deliver; acted in two plays by Joe Orton “Entertaining Mr Sloane’ and ‘Funeral Games”; starred in Hollywood movies acting alongside Bruce Dern, Sharon Stone, Dennis Hopper, Harry Dean Stanton & Brad Davis and working with directors such as Steven Spielberg, John Frankenheimer & Wayne Wang, already in his illustrious career.

MOTÖRHEAD NEWS:

MOTÖRHEAD CANCELS SPRING EUROPEAN TOUR

January 24, 2014 – It is with great regret that Motörhead has to announce the cancellation of their European tour, scheduled to start February, 2014.



Many concerted, diligent and focused efforts were made by founding member, and international icon, Lemmy Kilmister to deal with a range of health issues relating to diabetes. While there has been undoubted progress, Lemmy and the band were advised by doctors that it was still too soon to resume full touring activities, and so for the good of the future, the band and Lemmy reluctantly agreed to cancel.



No-one is hurting more over this than Lemmy, and he feels the aggravation and inconvenience of every ticket, and every method of transportation, already paid for by loyal fans in anticipation of the tour. Being a road warrior of over 50 dedicated, non-stop years, it is equally distressing for him to be unable to occupy the top lounge of the trusty tour bus (his spiritual home) but Lemmy recognizes that his long-term health must win. It goes without saying that Lemmy profusely apologizes for inconveniences caused, but he does want everyone to know that he is continuing on the road to a full recovery, and that the prognosis long-term is very good.



Fans have shown tremendous support for Lemmy, and it has meant so much to him. As he told Rolling Stone, "Oh, man, the fans were unbelievable when I got sick," he says. "No bitching. It was all ‘Take your time, get better. Don’t worry, we’ll wait for you. Get well.’"



Rome was not built in a day…like Lemmy’s health. But there is some strong light at the end of the tunnel here…we thank you so very much for your continued love, support and understanding.




MOTÖRHEAD FANS! WE NEED YOU GUYS TO VOTE IN THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES FOR THE LOUDWIRE 2013 MUSIC AWARDS!

It’s 100% Fan Voting. You can vote once per hour, until February 11th, 2014.



Vote Motörhead Now! Cheers!

EXPLOITED SIGN TO NUCLEAR BLAST FOR NEW ALBUM!

 THE EXPLOITED

SIGN WITH NUCLEAR BLAST

  Nuclear Blast Records are proud to announce the signing of British punk-legends THE EXPLOITED. Founded in 1980 in East Kilbride/Scotland by Wattie Buchan the band signed now a worldwide contract with Nuclear Blast.

Wattie states: “At last, after giving my word four years ago that we would sign to Nuclear Blast, it’s now official! For us it’s a big deal to be signing to the biggest indie record company in Europe. One of the main reasons we signed to them is the fact that Marcus, the owner, is a big Exploited fan and I know he will give us 100% backing to make the next album as great as the last ones. Ps. It WILL be this year sometime!!!!! Punks Not Dead”

Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger adds: "Having THE EXPLOITED sign a deal is a longtime dream coming true. In my youth I listened to Hardcore and Punk almost exclusively and THE EXPLOITED have been one of my absolute favorites ever since. Records like ‘Punks Not Dead’, ‘Troops Of Tomorrow’ and later on also ‘Beat The Bastards’ and ‘Fuck The System’ have been on heavy rotation constantly. The shows of this band have always been and still are a very special experience. Honest, hard and snotty – just like Punk should be. A true highlight for me of course was their performance at the Nuclear Blast HQs on my birthday in 2013. After that the deal has been set via handshakes and we’ve been celebrating till the break of dawn! Welcome to Nuclear Blast guys, Punks not dead!!”

The eagerly awaited new album shall be released in autumn 2014!

OFF IS ON AGAIN! NEW ALBUM!!

 

SELF-RECORDED SIXTEEN SONG ALBUM WASTED YEARS TO BE RELEASED ON VICE RECORDS APRIL 7th , FEATURES NEW RAYMOND PETTIBON ART
 

Punk/hardcore luminaries OFF! have announced the impending release of their new full length Wasted Years. Slated to arrive April 7, 2014 from Vice Records, the LP is simply the most direct and unprocessed realization of OFF!’s mission yet. In an attempt to capture the sonic embodiment of the album’s thematic darkness, the album was self-recorded live to 8-track ½” tape in the quartet’s practice space, with a minimum of overdubs and an inability to punch in (i.e. every performance is an unedited take). Recorded immediately after writing was completed, the record captures vocalist Keith Morris, guitarist Dimitri Coats, bassist Steven McDonald, and drummer Mario Rubalcaba in the act of bringing its 16 palpably visceral songs to life. Full tracklist and album art by longtime visual collaborator Raymond Pettibon (Black Flag, Sonic Youth) below.
 
Since forming in 2010, OFF! have boasted a relentless recording & tour itinerary that has resulted in some of the rawest, most energizing musical experiences of the new decade. Harnessing and distilling reckless freneticism to its purest essence, they’ve rediscovered the stripped down core of noise, speed, and rock & roll at the heart of punk rock that previously seemed lost forever. This brutally direct approach has resulted in the kind of glowing accolades (including rave reviews and features from Pitchfork, NPR, LA Times) that some bands spend a lifetime chasing.

NEW BOYS ALBUM COMING!

 The Boys would like to thank all of our Facebook friends, followers and fans for your tremendous support over the past twelve months. 
2013 was an exciting year for us, particularly with the deluxe reissues of our first two albums – "The Boys" & "Alternative Chartbusters", which were well received by all and culminated in some excellent reviews in the music press. It was certainly a night to remember at the release party in London in June when we were joined on-stage by original member Andrew Matheson at a packed out Borderline. 
2014 promises to be an even more exciting year for us as we have now finished recording, mixing & mastering our first brand new album since 1981’s "Boys Only", which is set to be released Spring/Summer 2014. We have also just agreed to play a nine date tour of Germany, which is to be the first time we have played so many back-to-back dates since 1981.
We are currently planning many more live dates around the world over the coming year and look forward to meeting many friends, both old and new, on the road.
We wish you a very Merry Xmas & wonderful New Year!
CASINO STEEL, MATT DANGERFIELD & HONEST JOHN PLAIN

Tim Burgess from the Charlatans has released a limited 300 pressing of the Membranes new single.

It’s a joint single with great new London band Throwing Up
 
Legendary influential UK underground band the Membranes have been gearing up since they were asked to reform by My Bloody Valentine for the ATP that they curated. The gig went down so well that the Membranes decided to reform for special gigs and projects instead of the retro circuit.

 
Shellac asked them to play the ATP they curated last year and Steve Albini said they were one of the best bands to appear at the event.
 
Last July the Membranes put on a sold out show at Manchester Gorilla venue called ‘the Universe Explained’ where they got scientists from the CERN project to explain particle physics with in conversations with Membranes mainman John Robb, a string quartet playing specially commissioned music about the universe and a recreation of the Higgs Boson particle experiment as well as films and a great talk from a scientist on how life forms in the universe.
 
They plan to bring the event to London this year and are in talks with venues in Tokyo, Moscow and New York and Berlin to do the same as well as playing the CERN project in Geneva.
 
The single is the first track from their all new set which will be released as an album this year that will attempt to explain the universe called ‘Dark Matter’
 
The band also have Steve Hanley- the legendary Fall bassist playing bass for them now.
 
They will also finally be appearing on the C*6 album when their influence on the whole of that scene is finally recognised with their inclusion on the album and the July gig
 
Formed in Blackpool in 1978 the Membranes were post punk noisenik outfit who influenced many bands on the UK undergound in the 80s .
