Welcome to another weekly installment of VMFNU! Today’s update is completely jammed packed with heavy metal happenings, weirdness (like the unlikely union of Iggy Pop and Yoko Ono), and sweet new jams to shake your hair to. In other good news, I’m happy to report that the good time that is the Movies About Girls podcast once again start broadcasting LIVE on August 17th via Google Hangouts. Tomorrow MAG’s summer movie celebration continues with Episode #171, and our exploration of 1978’s bikini bash flick, Zuma Beach. You can listen to the episode here later this weekend.
Speaking of bikini’s, head over to horror loving blog Destroy the Brain, and check out my latest Coffin Couture article, “Sepultura, Skeletons, and Satan: Heavy Metal Swimwear”. It’s full of eye-popping metal goddesses in bathing suits fit for the apocalypse.
Now, on to all the metal shit that went down this week…
Iggy Pop joins the Plastic Ono Band for a new one-sided 10-inch single, that features Pop singing Yoko Ono’s song “Waiting For The D Train“.
What in the What-Ever-Happened-To-Baby-Jane Hell? Josh Homme on the cover of Metal Hammer Norway.
The new 4 song EP from Black Table, “Sentinal“, is full of screamo, thrashy goodness. Listen to it right now.
Speaking of things you should do right now, here’s a video of the Melvins covering the Butthole Surfers track “Graveyard” along with Gibby Hanes.
New heavy metal video game, Eternal Descent features Joe Satriani, Andrew WK, and other metalheads.
LA band Black Prisim somehow went back in time to 1971, became Black Sabbath, and recorded their new 7″, “Satan’s Country“. You can download the title track for free over at Easy Rider Records Soundcloud page.
Speaking of Black Sabbath, Lita Ford says that Ozzy once nearly ruined Easter dinner for her family. And after reading that last sentence, I’m officially as confused as you are.
Holy Grail will swing back through Seattle in October with Orange Goblin and Lazerwulf.
My very metal pals, Boston band The Humanoids, are releasing a record called “Wild Times“on steel colored vinly. It doesn’t get much more metal that this kids.
File this one in the overstuffed drawer full of things they don’t teach you in school; a map of the United States that includes a photo of the most notable musician born in each state.
Ever wanted to hear Dave Mustaine talking about his “personal” relationship with God? Yeah, me either.
In other news you should know, God’s only begotten son was a Boston Bruins fan.
As if we needed another reason to hate hipsters; according to this article at Quartz, hipsters are buying records, but they don’t listen to them.
