Get ready for some seriously bad-ass bagpipery. The Badpiper is a tattooed, mohawked, leather-kilted, big-booted punk rock piper from Perth, Western Australia who plays an awesome set of flame-throwing bagpipes.
In this video we see The Badpiper strutting, thrusting, and shooting rock ‘n’ roll flames to the tune of AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” outside of the Jus Burgers in Fremantle, Western Australia. It’s an unforgettable sight.
Archie McPhee is happy to announce we’re releasing our first single, Meat Parade! Watch the teaser music video above. It features only a portion of the song, but it shows the full meat parade in action. The vinyl single looks like a beautifully marbled ham steak. Only one thousand produced!
If you’ve read Where the Wild Things Are or played the action-adventure video game(s) Ico and/or Shadow of the Colossus, then you’ll probably enjoy this fantastic monochromatic video at least as much as we did. It was nominated for Best Short Form Music Video at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
Col Chris Hadfield, Canadian astronaut and Commander of the International Space Station, is preparing to return home to Earth. For the past six months he’s provided us all with truly awesome glimpses of our world and countless fascinating insights into what life is like in outer space, aboard the ISS. (What ever will we do without him?) But before he goes, Commander Hadfield has gifted us with a song. It gave us goosebumps and is pretty much one of the best things ever:
With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World.
Huge thanks in the making of the video to the talented trio of Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran and Andrew Tidby, plus Evan Hadfield and all at the CSA.

"The instrument is quite striking but rather impractical—because the violins are joined at the base, musicians must play them upside down, more like a cello. In addition to making the occasional Frankenstein instrument, Sobolev is working on an intriguing electric violin that will be able to mimic the sounds of rare and antique violins.”

For Week #128 the theme was Music Album Cover Homages and the resulting creations are absolutely brilliant. We’ve shared a few of our favourite reinterpreted covers above. Click here to view them all.

Oh Yeah Wow created this awesome animated video to accompany the song “Time To Go” by Wax Tailor and Aloe Blacc. The video depicts the adventures of a cute blue crocheted quadropus who goes about swimming through the air of its urban ocean playfully turning things blue. Completely stop-motion animated, the "Time To Go" video was painstakingly created over the course of three and a half months with the creative team working 12-hour days, six days a week.

Photographer Christine Zona travels around San Francisco and Los Angeles photographing the awesome and incredibly exuberant participants in the world of competitive air guitar playing.
"These guys are amazing,” Zona says. “They live ‘normal’ lives but become these larger than life characters on stage just once a year. Following their air guitar careers and photographing them has become an addiction.” Zona is currently putting together a book on the series. Check a few photos out below and then be sure to head on over to her website to see more of her work.
