This Day in Music History

Today is both the birthday of 80’s pop icon Debbie Gibson, and the anniversary of CBGB founder Hilly Kristal’s passing in 2007 from complications from lung cancer. What better time to revisit when their world’s collided in the mid-90’s thanks to the Circle Jerks and their cover of The Soft Boys “I Wanna Destroy You.”

Where the Internet Took Us

IDLES is one of our favorite bands that we discovered while the blog was in hiatus. We could’ve easily done a While We Were Sleeping post about them (and may still do one because we definitely love them enough to keep posting about them) but we’re kicking off our week by cranking their Live at Abbey Road session that dropped last night. Who needs coffee when you have banging versions of the best songs from their back catalogue and first listens of tracks off their upcoming album Ultra Mono including this absolute ripper “War.”

Full set here. Ultra Mono is due out September 25th on Partisan Records and is available for pre-order here.
