Best Of Shows: Unstoppable Death Machines – Live At Present Co 1/27/12

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Our friends Unstoppable Death Machines just did a music video release for their epic jam Space Time Continuum at Present Co. in Brooklyn at the end of January. When it got to the end of the set people went apeshit all over the band’s art installation and basically wrecked the place.

Watch the whole clip to witness the havoc the band and their fans let loose on this unsuspecting art gallery.

RIP Malcolm McLaren, Dead at 64

It’s been a rough first half of the year. Malcolm Mclaren died yesterday. He was 64. Though he will undoubtedly be best remembered for his work as manager for UK punk rock act The Sex Pistols (and slightly less for his role as impresario for the red-patent-leather-commie era New York Dolls) his contributions to fashion, music, and popular culture could quite plausibly be described as “immeasurable”. Nearly everything Mclaren touched has influenced the work we do here at Riot Style. To say that Jamie Reid, Vivianne Westwood and Malcolm Mclaren are our style and design forebearers would be an understatement. They brought art to terrible music, and music to terrible art. They brought situationism to the mainstream and the underground to market. We would go so far as to say we ripped them all off… Viva cash. Viva chaos.

As a tribute, Here’s part 1 of a two part video interview SUPREME conducted with Malcolm as a part of their Spring / Summer 09 collection based on the Duck Joint / Buffalo Gals / Duck Rock era work of Mclaren, Keith Haring and the world famous Supreme Team DJ crew.

Let it rock!
