The Broken Family Band set to release ‘Best of’ album ‘It’s All Over’ next month

The Broken Family Band, who split back in 2009, are one of my favourite ‘unsung’ bands from the noughties. For those of you unfamiliar with the band’s output, a retrospective ‘best of’ called, ‘It’s All Over‘ is released early next month (just in time for Christmas) and I strongly recommend grabbing a copy.

Back in 2003 the NME described their sound as, “Like Pavement covering Nashville standards, polished off with the caustic wit of Lou Reed and varnished with the spunky smear of Gram Parsons’ love pump”. Which to be fair, as daft as it sounds, isn’t a bad summary.

Here’s a couple of tunes/videos from their heyday:


Poor Little Thing (Live @ Cambridge Folk Festival, 2006)


(I Don’t Have The Time To) Mess Around


The Booze And The Drugs

Remastered and nestling in the back of a beautifully designed hardback book, ‘It’s All Over’ is out on the 9th December – you can pre-order a copy here.

Next month Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip have a collaborative mixtape out called, The Abstract & The Dragon. The first track to see the light of day and get a video is, Thank You. The tune also features some hype-man-esque cameos from Lil’ Wayne and Kanye West – check out the video below – be warned though, it appears Bus-a-Bus has gone an uploaded a ‘clean version‘:

Seth Rogen and James Franco create Kanye West video spoof

Last week I posted up a link to the truly horrendous new Kanye West video for Yeezus track, Bound 2. The video’s been the talk of many a social platform these past few days and now Hollywood buddies, Seth Rogen and James Franco have gone and uploaded a ‘shot by shot’ spoof of the video. It really is rather titillating – check it out below:
