    Rumors that this was, in fact, the trophy presented to Metallica when St. Anger went platinum have proven completely unfounded. Turns out Jaymz is just liquidating his roadkill collection on eBay: see what rock stars are forced to do when you download their music?

    Matt Hooker rocks the Danzig tee (photo from returntothepit.com)

    When Matt Hooker isn't busy playing the crotch shaker (check out the video) or singing songs about mustache rides with his crew of redneck-rock jokesters Foam 'n' Mesh, you can find him melting faces with local thrash masters Random Acts of Violence

    1. So yeah, Sasha Frere-Jones was an early adopter on the M.I.A. tip. But how'd he get one of his colleagues to dig deep into Maya's daddy's terrorist group? Philip Gourevitch talks Tamil Tigers in a story that's not online. Thumbnail, however, appears here. In the same issue, Sasha waxes on and off about her ex-boyfriend Diplo and his new buddy DJ Marlboro and the song they all made together called "Bucky Done Gone."

    We've been anxiously awaiting some music from the Hound for a good long while. We sent our boy Will Spitz to scope them out first, as a precaution. He came back with his spine in knots and it took us a week to pry his jaw out of his bootstraps. Call the chiropractor 'cuz the Hound will be twisting backbones and dislodging platelets tonight at PA's Lounge (with Tristan de Cunha and Piles) and tomorrow at O'Brien's.

    1. Human Bone Bicycle Sciences Industries, a grindcore/deathmetal Hartford band that sounds like grizzly bears eating Kim Jong Il alive.

    Donna F.'s junkie alter-ego: Gravy Train!!!!'s Chunx

    Things we learned from Gravy Train!!!!'s old rap album: underage boys will screw fat chicks when they're drunk on malt liquor; cheeseburgers can get you pregnant; the Ying Yang Twins are polite, upstanding gentlemen and really good rappers, relatively speaking.

    It's not every day that you happen across the perfect confluence of pop and product. "Nextel Chirp," by Maceo featuring Fats, has been kicking around since at least April (Maceo's now signed to the same label as Mr. So Icey). Its first stroke of genius is that the beat samples the sound of turning on the walkie-talkie function of the phone in question

    Dead-rock-icon dick: one night only!

    A plaster cast of Jimi Hendrix's cock, transsexual punk Jayne County's painting Penis Trees and Snakes in the Shape of Half-Created Humans, and Ramones art director Arturo Vega's series "Porn Is the New Rock": just a few examples of what to expect at the reception at Club Passim for "Hung," a group show of rock-associated artists curated by Punk magazine photographer John Nikolai

    OTD is sneaking off to the Cape for much-needed battery recharge, in the process missing out on the best show ever. Uh, at least this week. Stay tuned, though: Cami and young Spitz have some surprises in store. But before you do anything else, get thee to Lemon-Red IMMEDIATELY. We're all the way over here and we still got sunburn from those tracks.

    Crispin Glover tries out for Tootsie

    That's alotta gold.

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away — okay, it was at Axis sometime in the ’90s — we stumbled on a band who were far, far ahead of their time. They played ridiculous hardcore punk songs with guitars and ’80s synthesizers and had elaborate costumes and monitors blasting weird collages of Atari video games and war footage and occasionally covered Run-DMC.

    We have seen the future of...

    ...barefoot-lunatic-chick-noise-rock...

    ... and it’s ...

    Afrirampo!

    Holy God, we’re still speechless from the two 20-year-old Japanese chicks who blew our brain to bits last Tuesday night at the MassArt gym: Afrirampo won't just scramble your brain, they’ll make it into a fritatta.
