This is epic! Nephicide by Jogger, dir. Matthew Robinson. Thanks C.H!
“Another product of the fertile cross-breeding programme in operation around LA right now, Jogger are a live electronics act combining psyche-folk leanings a la Animal Collective with the sort of beat science trimmings more associated with the many egos of Daedelus.” - I would add in a little Burzum and Mortiis into the mix.

“Rush,” from The Globe, 1991.
“Big Audio Dynamite (later known as Big Audio Dynamite II and Big Audio, and often abbreviated BAD) were a British musical group formed in 1984 by the ex-guitarist and singer of The Clash, Mick Jones. The group were noted for their effective mixture of varied musical styles, incorporating elements of punk rock, dance music, hip hop, reggae, and funk. BAD’s one constant throughout frequent shifts in membership and musical direction was the vocals provided by Mick Jones.” [via]

The joint project of Google and the Russian Railways lets you take a trip along the famous route and see Baikal, Khekhtsirsky range, Barguzin mountains, Yenisei river and many other picturesque places of Russia without leaving your house. During the trip, you can enjoy Russian classic literature, brilliant images by photographer Anton Lange and fascinating stories about the most attractive sites on the route.”

“The Housemartins were an English indie pop band that was active in the 1980s. Many of the Housemartins’ lyrics were a mixture of Marxist politics and Christianity, reflecting singer Paul Heaton’s beliefs at the time (the back cover of London 0 Hull 4 contained the message, “Take Jesus - Take Marx - Take Hope”)…The band’s membership changed considerably over the years. Key left at the end of 1985 and was replaced by Norman Cook — the future Fatboy Slim — and drummer Chris Lang was replaced by Hugh Whitaker, former drummer with The Gargoyles, who in turn was replaced with Dave Hemingway.” [via]
