The Horror Disco of Giallo

The Horror Disco of Giallo

I don’t know much about Giallo Records and I like it that way. Based somewhere between “Berlin and Vienna,” the upstart label specializes in true-to-form retro horror disco, Italo and EBM as steady influences- their producer Vercetti Technicolor calls it “VHS Horror.” Using the crowdsourced service, IndieGoGo as funding, the imprint has just dropped a storming, four song,...

Brussels Express

Brussels Express

Brussels Express is a beautiful documentary about two of the only bicycle messengers in the very congested city of Brussels, where as it stands, only boasts a 4% cycling traffic rate. Even for myself, a bicycle commuter in Smog City, that number is low. Directed, shot & edited by Sander Vandenbroucke. 19 minutes.

Two weekends ago, the Denver-bred, Smog City-based 80s wavers The Chain Gang of 1974 headlined the Westword’s recent Artopia Festival, a music and arts event spread across multiple clubs and centered in the stupid-huge, brand new downtown club, City Hall.

Though some have called LP 2 as having “cross-over potential,” I’m still not hearing it. Playing a late-afternoon early show...
