It came from Detroit Teaser trailer

Definitely one of the best live bands I have seen in recent years the Dirtbombs rock out 'I can't stop thinking about it'.

Zvezda Russian Infantry of Peter the Great

I wonder what my Russian friend thinks of these? I like them - these and their Swedish infantry are the best 18thc figures in 1/72.

Von Sundenfed

Impressive collaboration between MES and German duo Mouse on Mars. Check out their Myspace and see if you like it too. The Observer magazine sums it up 'In the aftermath of John Peel's death, Mark E Smith has found himself installed as de facto spiritual leader - a kind of Salfordian Dalai Lama - of those left bereft by the passing of his most eminent establishment patron.' (Ben Thompson) - I always thought of the Fall like that anyway. I really like this album - it's actually quite catchy and also humourous in places. Recommended.

Samurai Reenactment footage from 2007

The Battle Of Kawanakajima - really impressive footage - well worth a look - I can imagine this really taking off - some more links of other impressive samurai things on Youtube.

Alphaville (1965)

Probably the most underrated movie of all time this movie by Jean-Luc Godard depicts a future that is chillingly accurate - a classic

Napoleon the father

Talking about being proud - Napoleon (who had his first birthday recently) is the proud father of a litter of ferret babies - the first of many to come this summer - get in touch if you fancy owning a ferret. You know you want to...

The Konks

This Boston band are brilliant - check out this clip of garage rock and roll mayhem as the Strangeloves 'Night time' gets the treatment. Brilliant. Did I tell you this band does a cover of our 'I Never Worry'. I am so proud.

Animals and Men at Ant Pride Live

Last week we played our first gig in London for about 27 years - we went down a storm. It was quite an event with people saying they really felt the years drop away as we gave it to them old school style.

Interesting film featuring a number of European groups coming together to celebrate the 300th anniversary of this battle.
