Thrash Hits Google Currents 2013 read

This is great news, eh? You can read Thrash Hits via Google Currents on your iPhone, iPad, Android phone or any other mobile device. That’s cool, isn’t it. It is. What’s more is that it looks dead nice. Nicer than the brand new website (or its content) that we’re bringing your way next week.

FREE STUFF: Relapse Records have posted loads of their back catalogue up for online streaming

May 30th, 2012

Relapse Records have gone and posted an enormous chunk of their back catalogue online via their official Bandcamp page, where you can stream the whole damn lot FOR FREE. Now despite some reporting to the contrary, it’s not their entire back catalogue (or at least, it isn’t yet), but it is a fair old part of it. Even so, it still means that you can listen to over 100 releases by Relapse, including records by Death, Pig Destroyer, Rotten Sound, Red Fang, Toxic Holocaust, and a whole lot more besides. The only real omissions from Relapse’s Bandcamp profile are some of the bands that used to be signed to the label but aren’t anymore – for those acts, which include Mastodon and The Dillinger Escape Plan among their number – Relapse have posted single sample songs from the albums in question. We don’t know why you’d moan about this though – it’s still more free and legal music for you to stream.

Obviously Relapse are hoping you’ll reward them for their online generosity by shelling out for a release or two – such as Baroness’ forthcoming Yellow & Green album – and why wouldn’t you? Remember kids, whether you’re a renegade who’d torrent his own grandmother given the chance, or if you’re the kind of person who’ll only listen to vinyl that you preferably bought in an actual real-world record store, it’s important that you support the bands you love. Because if you don’t, they might not be able to afford to keep making that music you enjoy so much.

Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to order some Brutal Truth albums at Relapse’s online store.


Unreleased Weezer track ‘found’ on YouTube

June 25th, 2008

Weezer Rivers Cuomo Thrash Hits

Eager web trawlers seemed to have landed a huge Weezer-sized catch today as they discovered what they thought was a brand new, unreleased track from the Californian emo pioneers.

However, the song, titled ‘Turnin’, Turnin” was confirmed by a label spokesman as a genuine Weezer or Rivers Cuomo song and is actually the song Weezer have been writing with their fans as part of the YouTube “Write a song with Rivers” blogs.

Being on YouTube, there is some great video action involved. Beginning with just a picture of Rivers Cuomo & co’s latest self-titled album which has come to be known as ‘The Red Album’ because the cover is red, it continues to include some of the greatest Premiership goals… ever.

Listen to ‘Turnin’ Turnin” by Weezer and watch football?
