WARNING RADIO HALLOWEEN SPECIAL PODCAST

WARNING HALLOWEEN HeaderI’ve been kicking around the idea of doing a halloween podcast for a few years. Halloween mixes are not uncommon and this year I could not resist getting in on the act. I mean it’s kind of a no brainer. With bands like Bauhaus, Joy Division and countless other darkwave and electro/industrial bands to choose from it was begging to be done. I didn’t stray too far from some of the alternative classics that come to mind when talking about a Halloween mix but I threw in just enough other tunes in to keep it fresh. Enjoy the mix for a limited time and look for Warning Radio Episode 011 coming very soon.

Happy Halloween,
Matthew Rubbish

No not another post about 120 Minutes! Taking a look back 2011 was a pretty eventful one for classic alternative. From with the 20th anniversities of classic reissues such as Nevermind, Actung Baby, and Primal Scream’s Screamadelica. To big new events about the break up of R.E.M. and the announcement of The Stone Roses getting back at it for some gigs (and possible new record) and finally the debut of Spotify in America.

So what’s on tap for 2012? With the slew of more reissues sure to be coming down the pike and some much anticipated shows, here are a few highlights of whats to come in the new year in the  world of classic alternative and new wave.

THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS celebrate the 30th anniversary of their second album Lincoln. TMBG are set to embark on a full US tour (in support of a new album) and will perform the entire album Lincoln in L.A. and Atlanta check. Details HERE

RHINO RECORDS who are never short on a more reissues than anyone can shake a stick at have a fine roster will be at it again in 2012 with some real heavy hitters including Ministry, Ramones,INXS, Depeche Mode and many more Details HERE

BEGGARS ARCHIVE is also getting in on the act with a number of classic reissues and best of collections as well. Highlights include best of comps from the Go-Betweens and Belly as well as reissues from Cocteau Twins, Beck, Bauhaus and the Charlatans.

But of course probably the biggest and most anticipated event to look forward to is the Stone Roses reunion gigs. I’m crossing all my fingers (and toes) the boys decide to bring the tour to america!

Best of luck in 2012 folks and don’t be afraid to let us know what you are most looking forward to this year.

FIX: THE MINISTRY MOVIE

Posted in INDUSTRIAL, MINISTRY, WAX TRAX on February 22, 2011 by matthewrubbish

Man, just when I thought I was in the clear on my Chicago related posts and along comes FIX: The Ministry Movie. The film that describes it self as “The Movie that shoves your ass way, way backstage with the scariest band EVER!”

Not a whole hell of a lot to say here other that watch the damn trailer cause this should be a good one! Or at least interesting if nothing else. Nah, it should be good.
