Podcast: The Raw and the Crooked

AC associate Stephen Bolles aka DJ Still Life has a new monthly podcast going, here's vol.1:

"Passing along the first volume of my new podcast series with my Sleeping Giant fam. It’s called The Raw and the Crooked, and will be dropping on the third Thursday of every month. Basically jagged beats and other fucked up shit from the crates that I don’t get to play out all that often. No tracklist for now, but I’m sure you know some of these tracks, so feel free to play name that beat. Hope it rattles yr brain."

Some deep back-of-the-crate break work. Also nice appropriation of the cover from "Bela Lugosi's Dead" by Bauhaus.

Another nice appropriation of "Bela Lugosi's Dead" is in the 1983 vampire film The Hunger. Basically what we want to say to you is, you should be watching more stylish 80s erotic horror movies. Like this and "Cat People" for example. Also "Angel Heart," where Mickey Rourke and Lisa Bonet have a epic lovemaking session where blood starts raining from the walls and they scream and stuff. Also De Niro plays the devil.

In "The Hunger" Catherine Deneuve plays a 2000 year old vampire and Bowie is her lover. They meet Susan Sarandon and then Catherine and Susan's characters do it.

In this scene Sarandon confronts Deneuve when she finds out she's become infected. She has a cool 80s like laser-shiny trenchcoat. And Deneuve is just awesome.
