Iggy Pop’s 1981 Halloween gig at the Mosque Ballroom in Richmond, Virginia, for the VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University) Halloween Dance (photos by Ron Smith for ‘The Commonwealth Times’), was never meant to be remembered as one of his most memorable performances, yet it had everything it takes for a gig to fall into the “legendary gigs” category

CRUCIAL PUNK DOC ‘DOA: A RIGHT OF PASSAGE’ FINALLY RESTORED FOR A HI-DEF DVD RELEASE

CRUCIAL PUNK DOC ‘DOA: A RIGHT OF PASSAGE’ FINALLY RESTORED FOR A HI-DEF DVD RELEASE | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

It’s a 1980 documentary/celebration/post-mortem of Punk Rock’s first wave, and it centers around the Sex Pistols’ disastrous 1978 US tour, cut with interview and concert footage of other key and not-so-key UK bands. 


Furthermore, there’s a good chance that even if you’ve never seen it, you’ve still seen bits and pieces of it. That famously sad Sid-and-Nancy-in-bed interview was culled from DOA, as is the footage you’ve probably seen of the Sex Pistols’ calamitous Texas gig, and the San Francisco performance at which they broke up—some of that footage later turned up in Julien Temple’s The Filth and the Fury. 


Some famous footage of X Ray Spex playing “Oh Bondage, Up Yours!” is from DOA as well.

Catching Up With Depeche Mode

Catching Up With Depeche Mode | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

On November 11th, 1985, British synth-pop sensations Depeche Mode were more broadly introduced to the US market with the compilation album Catching Up With Depeche Mode. 


The name of the compilation is to be taken quite literally – Since People Are People (the single and the compilation album) turned out to be a big hit in the US, Sire Records wanted to popularize the band a little more with a compilation album that collects the band’s material from 1981 to 1985, and it was released at the same time as the band’s first (European) singles collection The Singles 81→85, that compiled every single the band released to that date. 


Different from that, Catching Up With Depeche Mode contained album tracks as well, trying to give the US audience a good overview on the band’s effort – including the B-sides tracks Fly On The Windscreen and Flexible.

UNDER THE RADAR: Hatchie debuts “Sure,” a shoegaze-y pop earworm

Hatchie is the alias of Harriette Pilbeam, a songwriter from Brisbane, Australia. She's debuting "Sure," a super melodic and shoegaze-y preview of her forthcoming Sugar & Spice EP. The track blends the exquisitely layered textures of early-’90s 4AD bands with wistful lyrics and a string of micro-hooks.
