Iconic

My dear Siouxsie Sioux graces the April/May issue of FADER magazine. Interesting choice for the magazine's icon issue, but I'm all for it as the former Banshees frontwoman is one of my all-time favorites and deserves such recognition.



Download issue 67 here.

Also this week, more downloadable content for the awesome and popular Rock Band video game franchise were released. In addition to tracks by the Violent Femmes, Coheed and Cambria and Supergrass, Siouxsie & the Banshees' "Peek-A-Boo" are now available on the XBox 360, Playstation 3, and the Nintendo Wii consoles. I'll definitely be downloading this for my Wii!

Because the Light

Check out this retro goodness. In 1979, Patti Smith performed Debby Boone's 1977 chart-topping hit "You Light of My Life" on the ABC Sunday morning show, Kids Are People Too. After her performance, the sincere and sweet Smith took questions from the teenage audience and the kids' questions are pretty entertaining.



Thank you Kathleen Hanna for pointing this out.

Also, tomorrow, Patti Smith will be honored by ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) at its 27th annual Pop Music Awards at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles, CA, where she will be given the ASCAP Founders Award. She deserves it!

Mixed Up

New Yorker Christian Marclay has been mashing tunes behind the decks for years, but he's also mashing up album sleeves. If you love Sleeveface, you'll love some of Marclay's imaginative displays.





[Thanks to the Design Inspiration].
