Released on Nov. 16th by Strange Attractor, check out this new book set by Rose Simpson, chronicling her time behind the scenes (and upfront) with The Incredible String Band, everyone's favourite hippie poster boys in the swinging sixties.
Between 1967 and 1971 Rose Simpson lived with the Incredible String Band (Mike Heron, Robin Williamson and Licorice McKechnie), morphing from English student to West Coast hippie and, finally, bassist in leathers. The band’s image adorned psychedelic posters and its music was the theme for an alternative lifestyle.
Woah. Look at that. Who'd have thought Danny Elfman would release the creepiest video of the year? His new single "Happy" on Epitaph/Anti- absolutely rules, I must have listened to it a dozen times already since I found out about it this morning. Think OINGO BOINGO meets his later orchestral movie stuff meets early SKINNY PUPPY (wait till the 2'45'' mark). I must confess I haven't paid too much attention to his movie scores after the 90s but this one is a keeper. I don't even know if there will be a full album but I'll pay close attention!
