If Anyone was a fan of the super great Steel Wheels record shop in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK then I suggest you check out Beatdown Records. Bassically Steel Wheels had Changed it's name and has now moved to two new premises. One in Ridley Place supplying drumn and bass and such (pah) the other, much superior store now located in Clarendon Basement, just across from Central Station. They Stock a RIDICULOUS amount of Metal, Stoner Rock, Avant Garde, Doom, Noise, Folk, Black Metal,punk,indie post rock blah blah and massive amount of vinyl too much of it rare.
but whatever you do, watch out for them stairs!
Check them out at Beatdown Records Claredon House Basement Bewick st NE1 5EE www.beatdownrecords.co.uk
So. My good freind Jamie started a blog cataloging bands who have swear words or offensive words in their names. Head on over to www.bandswithswears.wordpress.com to get all potty mouthed. Should be good.
Sir Ben Kingsley. Academy Award Winner. Star of such great films as Ghandi. Schindlers List. Sexy Beast.
And now. Fronting Minor Threat?
Sir Ben Kinglsey Mackeye? Is this somekind of biographical movie starring Kingsley as everyones favourtie DIY enthusiast? Or Maybe he just really likes Minor Threat. Either way, see it. Believe it. Bizzare.
