Best Coast, Wavves, Black Lips, Hunx Model Garage-Rock Fashion For GQ

’60s-style garage-rock seems to exist in a state of perpetual revival, but the people making the music these days sure dress nicer than they did back in the ’90s bowling-shirt era. Someone at GQ (where, full disclosure, I’ve done some freelance work) noticed, and they put together a new photo spread that features various leading… More »

Quit Your Day Job: Hunx And His Punx

Onetime Gravy Train!!!! frontman Seth Bogart is the leopard-printed/speedo-wearing Hunx of Hunx And His Punx (or, these days, Punkettes). His Oakland-based band’s debut album comes out next month.

Hunx And His Punx – “Lovers Lane”

Note that they use the distinctive “Boom. Ba boom, cha!” beat from “Be My Baby.” That drumbeat is practically synonymous with teenage heartbreak. It… More »

Harlem – “Gay Human Bones” Video

Hunx & His Punx – “You Don’t Like Rock ‘n’ Roll” Video

Hunx shows less of his junk in the the opening sequence of Justin Kelly’s “You Don’t Like Rock ‘n’ Roll” video than he did in Girls’ XXX “Lust For Life” clip. He hasn’t gotten modest, no, things are just less copacetic with his boyfriend and the dude’s terrible taste in music. Once he leaves the… More »

The 10 Most NSFW Music Videos Of 2009

Why all the nudity in 2009? Well, look at this way: The affordability of video production technology has made it easier for everybody to get in the game; the unceremonious death of music television has shifted the means of music video distribution to the internet, where it’s less about FCC than about NSFW; and let’… More »

New Girls Video – “Lust For Life”

A little over a year ago we gave Girls their NYC debut. Today we get a video in support of an old 7″ track that shows up on their debut Album. If you’re not familiar, yes it’s a different “Lust For Life,” but Girls’ tune has an uppity and excited hedonism that Iggy would also… More »
