If you were wondering how Goldfish were ‘doing’ overseas, do yourself a favour and watch this video. Make sure you’re sitting down.
No she isn’t related to Slash, Hendrix or Claudio Sanchez but we’re pretty sure she shreds harder than they did when they were eight years old. She shreds her way into our hearts, and straight into the Boss Hall Of Fame.

Apparently “Call Me Maybe” goes with almost everything. What happens when you pair nineties industrial rock band, Nine Inch Nails with teenybopping Carly Rae Jepsen? Harmony, actually. PomDeter’s Call Me Hole may not be music excellence, but it is one of the cleanest mashups you’ll hear for a very, very long time. And… Here’s the original NIN [...]
