Connan Mockasin is one of the most interesting, creepy, and compelling people of the year: he sings like a baby girl, wears silk dresses, and has the face of a German murderer. He's Klaus Kinski in a golden kimono, on helium. There's something about him that's both bewilderingly androgynous and tot ... More >>

Australia’s Hiatus Kaiyote hit the Knitting Factory
I don't understand plenty about Australia--Vegemite, the platypus' existence as a non-mythical creature, etc.--but what I truly don't get is how everyone in Melbourne could've kept Clairy Browne and the Bangin' Rackettes all to themselves since Baby Caught The Bus came out the first time around in 2 ...

On the surface, it seemed Craig Dermody's life wasn't going all that bad in his home of Melbourne, Australia. He was playing around town in the psychedelically damaged rock unit Spider Vomit as well as in his wonderfully brainless Punk band, Divorced.
Reached by phone backstage at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, in the draggy hours between soundcheck and show time, Jens Lekman is all apologies.

Gawker has obtained a series of emails supposedly from Julian Assange to a 19-year-old girl he met in a bar in Melbourne back in 2004, when he was 33. If these are to be believed as true, even then, prior to the foundation of WikiLeaks, he had a singular flair for getting at whatever undisclo ... More >>

Animal Kingdom suffers for its ambition
Pick a favorite line here. Mine's "This was ten years ago, when there were millions of people walking around with nothing to look at. Crowds would gather at car crashes or domestic arguments." Or maybe "Privately, we were the Homeboy, the Homo, and the Home Wrecker." Or "So I get vilified on ... More >>

Our boss (Broderick Crawford in Scandal Sheet) likes video, so here's one of a six-month-old getting hit by a train. He was in his stroller, which rolled off the platform in Melbourne, and they must make strollers tough in Australia because the boy suffered only a bump on his head. Drama! Human in ... More >>
