A DJ that goes by Squarepusher collaborated with a Japanese robot band called Z-Machines to create an EP called ‘Music For Robots.’ Check out the behind-the-scenes video that shows how these robots learned how to shred on the guitar.
It is sad times indeed when a band which has undoubtedly become an institution in itself announces it’s retirement. So it has been said of AC/DC, who has always maintained that it would throw in the towel if one of its original members were forced to leave the group – rather than replacing a member [...]

A 2oceansviber alerted us to this little angel’s YouTube video that seems to be getting quite a lot of attention. Check out 13-year-old Capetonian, Gabriella de Plessis singing ‘Say Something’ by Christina Aguilera.
Billy Joel had a rock legend join him on stage during a recent performance at Madison Square Garden. AC/DC’s Brian Johnson made a guest appearance, rocking out to the tune of ‘You Shook Me All Night Long.’
Well, so says one band calling themselves UB40 (let’s call them Original40). The other band also performing under the name of UB40(henceforth Diet40) will still be touring SA. But what’s the deal with both bands claiming to be UB40?
This year Design Indaba turns up the volume with a host of South African sound masters taking to the stage in the music circuit. From Afropop to Jazz, no genre will be spared with 38 acts, across 10 venues, for two nights in the Mother City. It’s about clashing together with local talent, promoting collaborations, [...]
This year Ultra Music Festival made its inaugural debut on the African continent. South Africa hosted the electronic dance music festival for the first time in Cape Town and Johannesburg in the month of Feb. For those that missed out here’s something to make you even more jealous.
What with February being award month; musicians collected more shiny objects at the recent Brit Awards. Here are the winners. The 2014 Brit Awards ceremony held at the O2 Arena featured performances by the likes of Beyonce, Katy Perry and Lorde. The latter took away the award for best international female.
No, this isn’t a scalping scam. Eminem will be playing in Cape Town this Wednesday evening, and Computicket have just released a raft of tickets for R99 each. You’ll be seated, but considering the basically non-existent price tag, that’s just fine. You buy apps that are more expensive than this. Tickets will be available for [...]
A week before his death, Jimi Hendrix sat down for an interview Keith Altham in London, in which he discussed a fantasy of having an indoor swimming pool next to his bed and swimming to the breakfast table, among other things.
I think that headline says it all. Just like Jack Parow’s new video has it all. And he made very sure that his position on hipsters is known, insinuating that they are urinating in bottles to make craft beer. It’s off the charts – click through to watch it.
The 2014 Design Indaba Music Circuit is a rollercoaster ride of 38 acts in 10 venues over wo days in one city. It’s about experiences, collaborations, having fun and giving a platform to fresh local talent, and you’d be a damned fool not to get involved. Take a look at who’ll be performing, and where. The [...]
Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has been known variously as a model, socialite, and the First Lady of France. As of now, she’s marketing herself as a musician, and we have to say she is rather charming. The video above is a performance of the title track from her new album, ‘Little French Songs.’
The 56th Grammy Awards reunited Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr for a special performance of ‘Queenie Eye’ taken from McCartney’s 2013 album, ‘New’. The two Beatles members didn’t miss a beat and had the entire crowd of the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on their feet by the end of the song.
There’s nothing quite as fun as mocking old-school music videos. And Noel Gallagher does it best.
This is just glorious. As a stunning reminder that life in South Africa will never be boring, we present ‘Girl Met Die Polo’, by a local artiste named Arri. Just enjoy that over your lunch break.
There’s paid-for product placement and then there is free, invaluable exposure by way of brand loyal customers.Take this famous US brand which found itself the subject of a hit rap song which is closing in on YouTube 100,000 views.
Henry Rollins… where to start? This guy has been around the block, starting out as vocalist for Black Flag in the early 80’s, and promiscuously hopping between all sorts of occupations, bringing his intense gaze along for the ride. In no particular order Rollins has fulfilled the rolls of a journalist, activist and even a [...]
Look, you’re going to be embarking on some kind of travel pretty soon. Mere days stand between you and hours of flight, or driving. At some point – most likely for most of the time – you’ll want to stop speaking to people. That’s cool. Tune in, and tune out.
Please enjoy the official music video for Eminem’s ‘Monster’, featuring Rihanna. Rihanna plays a clinical psychiatrist, peeling through Eminem’s insane past. Yes, there is lots of blue lipstick, and straight jackets. Thanks for asking. [Source: YouTube]
We all know the drill when it comes to Elvis impersonators. An elderly man in tight white pants strolls on stage, gives a little hip-wobble, and then proceeds to warble out some truly painful melodies.This 16 year-old, by those standards, is a breath of fresh air.
Kanye West recently had a fan jettisoned from one of his performances, after the brave soul heckled him relentlessly.
In which she sings repeatedly about a day of the week, rides a stuffed triceratops, recovers from a Friday hangover (see what she did there?), and gets her friends to mock Miley Cyrus. Yep, this is actually happening.
You’ll never guess what humans and crickets have in common – and it’s either amazing or completely terrifying. Composer Jim Wilson recorded crickets, slowed down the track and produced what sounds like human voices singing.
In a video that was quite likely inspired by Bieber’s exploits in Brazil, Justin attempts to “sex-up” his act. It doesn’t seemed to have worked all that well.
