A Gentle Giant in Captivity - An Interview with Derek Schulman

4 October 2017 8:52 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Recently, Dusty provided me a golden opportunity: in connection with the release of Three-Piece Suite -- a remastering of some compositions from Gentle Giant's first three albums -- their media team offered an interview with Derek Schulman, lead singer for the group, and now a high-level record company executive. Knowing my love of Gentle Giant, Dusty offered the interview to me. There was no constraint on content, only on the number of questions (an even dozen). So, with thanks to Anne Leighton (of Anne Leighton Media), who coordinated, here is my interview with one of progressive rock's most iconic figures, both as an artist and as a rep:

1. There has been a sort of minor resurgence of things Gentle Giant, including the induction of the band into the Portsmouth Hall of Fame, and the imminent release of Three-Piece Suite, a collection of compositions from the first three Gentle Giant albums, »

What Happened To Alex Proyas?

12 September 2017 3:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe looks at the career, rise and fall of Alex Proyas

Born to Greek parents in Egypt and subsequently raised in Australia, you could say that Alex Proyas has an interesting background. He started, as a lot of film directors have, in music videos (working with the likes of Inxs and Sting). To many his first film might be assumed as The Crow, but several years earlier, and fresh out of college he made Spirits of the Air, Gremlins of the Clouds. This was a small post-apocalyptic film, every bit as odd as the title suggests, but undoubtedly carrying a certain Oz charm.

When The Crow was in development, the source material being so heavily influenced by music (particularly The Cure, Joy Division and Iggy Pop) and with an intention to include a notable soundtrack to the film, meant that there was a natural lean toward hiring a director with a music video background. »

Celebrity Spotted! Robert Pattinson Makes a Creepy Cameo in Oneohtrix Point Never's Music Video

6 September 2017 12:02 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Robert Pattinson is usually the star of the big screen, but this time he's lending his famous face to the music.  The Good Time star makes an unsettling cameo appearance in Oneohtrix Point Never's "The Pure and the Damned" as he wields a sword against a carcass-eating wolf. Directed by The Safdie Brothers—Joshua Safdie and Benny Safdie—the video works in conjunction with Pattinson's character in Good Time, which the brothers also directed, and the song is also featured on the movie's soundtrack.  In addition to the British star, the visual also features appearances from Benny and a digitized Iggy Pop, who also lent vocals to the »

‘Good Time’: The Safdie Brothers Direct Robert Pattinson in Unnerving New Music Video From Film’s Soundtrack — Watch

5 September 2017 8:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It seems only right that the Safdie Brothers would direct the music video for the latest song to come off their award-winning soundtrack for their newest film, “Good Time,” and their vision of “The Pure and the Damned” doesn’t disappoint, but it’s certainly unnerving. The song, a collaboration between Oneohtrix Point Never and Iggy Pop, is pulled directly from the off-kilter drama’s original soundtrack, which includes 12 other tracks from the producer, also known as Daniel Lopatin. The soundtrack won Best Soundtrack at Cannes earlier this year.

The new video features an eerily computer-generated Pop (shirtless, of course) singing the lovely, but deeply mournful song (haven’t seen “Good Time” yet? this may change your anticipations for the crime thriller, which is way more Iggy-Pop-singing-a-sad-song than whiz-bang mayhem, and we mean that in the best possible way), juxtaposed with shots of the film’s stars, Robert Pattinson and Benny Safdie, »

The Top Uses of Iggy Pop Songs in Movies

He’s been designated as the “Godfather of Punk” and has earned that kind of reputation many times over. Throughout the years he’s been putting his signature sound to use in many different ways be it film, TV, or video games. He’s even been in front of the camera a time or two to the delight of his many fans. Whatever kind of punk rock there is he’s probably heard of it or even tried it out. He’s been known for his on stage antics and was even a part of the band called The Stooges. They were inducted into the

Stream Oneohtrix Point Never’s Full Score for ‘Good Time’

11 August 2017 6:05 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One of the most effective — and simply best — scores of the year thus far is for the Safdies’ Good Time, from Oneohtrix Point Never (aka Daniel Lopatin). A frenzied, pulsating work that consumes much of the film, it’s perfectly attuned with the non-stop energy of the crime drama. With the film hitting theaters today (our rave review), the full score is now streaming, including the closing track featuring Iggy Pop.

“When we were working on the film, Josh and Ben would remind me to go harder and more out, because it’s very easy to mimetically revert back to [Tangerine Dream founder] Edgar Froese—it’s just in my DNA,” Lopatin tells Pitchfork. “Then Josh is in the room being like, “No, make it more fucked up.” His expression was, “Get micro,’ because he’s the exact same way.”

Check out the score below, along with a Vikram Gandhi-directed short starring and written by Robert Pattinson, »

Watch: Robert Pattinson and the Safdies Discuss ‘Good Time’ in 45-Minute Talk

3 August 2017 12:39 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

At a Film Comment Presents preview screening of the Safdie Brothers’ newest film Good Time at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, co-directors Josh and Benny Safdie, lead actor Robert Pattinson, and co-writer and co-editor Ronnie Bronstein sat down for a Q&A with Film Comment editor Nicholas Rapold. The resulting 45-minute conversation about the acclaimed film, to be released on August 11 after its acclaimed premiere in competition at Cannes, spans the gamut, from a rundown of the backstory of the main character to an explanation of the involvement of Iggy Pop (complete with an invocation of termite art).

“It’s probably safe to say that, up until now, no lucid person had compared a Safdie brothers film to the work of Michael Mann,” Rory O’Connor said in our review. “Indeed, it may still be a stretch, though Good Time — the New York siblings’ latest eye-popping, pill-popping, attention-deficit character »

John Oliver Wipes the Floor With Alex Jones on the Return of ‘Last Week Tonight’ — Watch

31 July 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

John Oliver is back from a much deserved summer break, and he came out swinging. On the return of “Last Week Tonight,” Oliver dedicated most of the show to the red-faced, far right wing, blustering conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

In addition to hosting his radio show and running the website InfoWars, Oliver has discovered Jones also sells a variety of products on the site, including some very manly looking personal hygiene wipes. Investigating further, Oliver finds the wipes “can be used anywhere needed, including the perineal area.” “That’s right, Alex Jones is trying to sell you sloppy wet rags for your taint,” says Oliver.

Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock review – picture-perfect profile

23 July 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Photographer Mick Rock makes a terrific subject in this documentary about the doyen of rock music snappers

If you called up central casting and asked for the archetypal hedonistic drug-guzzling 1970s music photographer, the chances are you would get someone who looked a lot like Mick Rock. All attenuated, gangly limbs, anarchic hair and perma-grafted sunglasses, this is the man who, through his celebrated shots of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Syd Barrett, Queen and Debbie Harry – the list seems endless – just about single-handedly shaped the visual history of the music of the 70s and 80s. But what’s astonishing is not so much the sheer volume of Rock’s work and his Zelig-like ability to pop up on the periphery of every happening scene in the 70s; it’s how much he remembers, despite a narcotics consumption that turned his body into a chemical disaster area to rival Bhopal. »

Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock review – tribute to a rock'n'roll snapper

20 July 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Photographer Mick Rock was a friend to the stars – David Bowie, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop among them – and the engaging chronicler of an era

There is a complex algorithm that applies to bio-documentaries about photographers. It has to do with the ratio to which the work itself is compelling and important on strictly aesthetic grounds in relation to how interesting the artist is, squared by the significance of his or her subject matter over the long haul. Therefore, any photography-centred movie will be intrinsically more interesting if the snapper specialised in portraits and snaps of famous people, which means this cinematic tribute to Mick Rock has a built-in advantage from the off. 

A laid-back charmer who came of age in the 1960s and almost stumbled into photography by shooting his girlfriends and then got a gig shooting the iconic album cover shot for Syd Barrett’s solo album, Rock »

Talking Shot! – an exclusive interview with the legendary Mick Rock

20 July 2017 5:06 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Daniel Goodwin

Legendary glam/punk photographer Mick Rock is a primary player in music/ rock  history, having provided some of the most iconic rock imagery to grace the careers and album covers of artists like Bowie, Blondie, Lou Reed, Queen and Iggy Pop.

Rock captured key moments from classic concerts including that iconic shot of Bowie performing fellatio on Mick Ronson’s guitar during the Ziggy Stardust era. He also designed the album covers of Bowie’s Space Oddity, Lou Reed’s Transformer, Iggy and The Stooges’ Raw Power and directed many of Bowie’s music videos.

Rock’s unruly work Mo was also a lifestyle choice. Integrating hard partying and meditation into his photography/practice by saturating himself in the event he was covering instead of adopting the role of a passive observer, yet Rock provided some outstanding imagery as a result.

‘Nico, 1988,’ Biopic of Velvet Underground Singer, to Open Venice Horizons Section

19 July 2017 3:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Italian director Susanna Nicchiarelli’s biopic “Nico, 1988,” about the late German chanteuse who was among Andy Warhol’s muses and sang with the Velvet Underground, has been set as the opening film of the Venice Film Festival’s Horizons section dedicated to cutting-edge fare.

The hotly anticipated film will screen on August 30 in the Lido’s Sala Darsena.

Danish actress, singer and songwriter Trine Dyrholm, who won the 2016 Berlin Silver Bear for her role in Thomas Vinterberg’s “The Commune,” plays the title role in this biopic of sorts, which focuses on the years 1987 and 1988, the last two years of Nico’s life.

In the film Dyrholm brings “the artist-icon Nico back to life” playing the part “with her own voice and transforming herself physically,” according to a Venice statement.

“This is the story of Nico after Nico,” Nicchiarelli said in the statement.

“People usually talk about her only in relation to the men she was »

Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock Review

18 July 2017 3:26 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Samuel Spencer

Picture the 1970s in your head, and chances are a Mick Rock image has come to mind. David Bowie managing to be the sexiest man alive despite a red mullet, a business suit and a saxophone? That’s Mick Rock. Topless Iggy Pop bending over backwards in a moment of rock ’n’ roll abandonment? Mick Rock. Debbie Harry looking like the girl next door (if you live next door to CBGBs circa 1974)? That too was done by certain Mr Michael David Rock. Yes, Rock is his real last name.

With that sort of pedigree, ‘Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock’, a new documentary on Rock’s life, would have probably got four stars if it had just been a few of those pictures on the big screen alongside a few anecdotes about doing drugs with David Bowie. However, director Barney Clay (husband of Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs »
