I kinda laughed when I got the email from their publicist asking if we’d be interested in interviewing “veteran psych-rock band, The Asteroid No.4” I mean, veterans? How old could they be? That was until I realized that we last spoke to them in 2002–yes, 12 years ago. A lot has happened in the psych-rock … Continue reading 12 Year Itch: Glorious Noise Interview with The Asteroid No. 4
Free MP3 from Brian Jonestown Massacre’s upcoming album, Who Killed Sgt. Pepper. Where’s Matt Hollywood?
I must admit: I got very, very drunk Saturday night.

After that, it’s a classic acoustic Anton Newcombe ballad. His voice sounds ragged, scorched, and awesome. Hell yeah. Also: Brian Jonestown Massacre – “Black Hole Symphony”, a ten-minute ambient … Continue reading Brian Jonestown Massacre – Yeah-Yeah

“Little Elf” by The Out Crowd, Matt Hollywood’s band, from Then I Saw the Holy City. More MP3s, myspace.
Holy shit, it was hot on Sunday. I was pretty sure we were all going to die for a while there. But hey, Glorious Noise suffers unbearable heat so you don’t have to. In this first installment, we cover Day One of Lollapalooza 2005.
