  • Neckface - Drinkin' On The Job @ New Image Art

    We're no strangers to New Image Art Gallery, so when they announced a solo NeckFace exhibition on a Friday night, it was on! The name and theme of the show was "Drinkin' On The Job" and it seemed fitting to head down to Hollywood and have a beer while shooting some rad pieces.

    Neck_Flier

    I showed up just before doors opened at seven and was blown away by the huge line to get in, it went all the way down the block and was starting to wrap around the corner. Neckface and free beer on a Friday were the right ingredients to start a party and as the night went on, things got pretty wild!

    The line moved slowly and the entire sidewalk filled up as we waited. It was basically the equivalent of tailgating before a football game, everyone was partying in line before entering and it got even crazier as we went in.

    The gallery was packed, hot, and the free beer was running out fast. I made my way through the drunken crowd and saw tons of awesome Neckface pieces scattered all around the room. I know some of the beer bottles and cans were placed on purpose to go with the theme of the show, but they really started to pile up towards the end of the night. The art seemed to be in it's natural habitat and I'm sure it's exactly what Neckface wanted.

    What do you spend your money on?

    3P1A9794

    Simple math, it makes sense...

    3P1A9795

    Are you a beer??? Classic Neckface, hilarious.

    3P1A9812

    This one cracked me up! Damn, It's dead in here...

    New Image Art was one big party tonight, I bet they didn't know it was going to get this crazy!

    3P1A9802

    If I get shot, you get shot!!! This was a huge piece that you saw right when you walked inside.

    3P1A9844

    Even after the gallery closed, the party raged on in the streets of Hollywood. Not sure how the cops allowed this to happen... Only Neckface can bring together such a rowdy crowd for an art show!

    3P1A9847

    The "Drinkin' On The Job" exhibition is on display at New Image Art (7920 Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood) until September 13th. It won't be as rowdy, but go check out some awesome and hilarious art while you can.

  • Catching Up With Allah-Las

    The Allah-Las are one of our favorite Los Angeles bands.  We recently had a great time chatting with Matt, Spencer, Miles, and Pedrum before their killer set at Echo Park Rising downtown.  It was short and sweet and the guys talked about beginnings, inspirations and their new album.

    Allah-Las_Press_Photo_0

    a1

    Here's how the convo went down:

    HEX: I know a bunch of you guys met when you were at Amoeba Records, can  you give us the backstory on that.  What brought you there, and how did it all come together?

    Allah-Las: Matt started working at the San Francisco Amoeba, and then he got me a job, and Pedrum worked there as well.  We worked there for a little while together, and then started the band together, with Miles.  That was about six years ago.
    Three of us went to high school together.  That's how we knew each other.

    HEX: You guys work a lot with Nick Waterhouse on your recordings.  How has he influenced the progression of the sound?

    Allah-Las: We also want to give a shout-out to Dan Horn who was a big part of the last record we did.
    The studio is actually right here, on the other side of that red, that red brick building [points].
    So Dan Horn and Nick Waterhouse both have a good influence, and are great people to work with.  It's always fun making records with those guys.

    a2

    HEX: You guys are traveling all over the world now.  How would you define “The L.A. Sound” , or what you guys' version of the L.A. sound is?

    Allah-Las: I think people take different things and try to mix them up together.  That's, that's kind of what this town is all about.  But it’s hard to say.  Everybody takes their different route, I guess.

    HEX: What's the vibe behind the new album?  Where did it come from, where are you going with it?

    Allah-Las: This one we had all the songs were thought out on the road by us individually or collectively, and we've gotten a chance to kind of work them out, hash them out in the studio afterward.  As opposed to the last record where we just played them live over and over again, and figured them out that way.  Doing it in the studio gave us the opportunity to be a little more creative with instrumentation and throw different things in there, try things.  It was a good experience for us.  We really enjoyed doing that.

    HEX: It's coming out, what, September, next month?

    Allah-Las: The 16th, yes.

    HEX: So your tour will start off in Europe.  Are there any specific place you guys are really looking forward to playing or places you're looking forward to getting back to?

    Allah-Las: We really like Greece.
    The South of France.  Spain.  Those were fun places to visit.
    The first show we're playing is in Mallorca.  It's a festival out there, so that's going to be really rad.  We are really looking forward to that.

    HEX: When I listen to your music, I hear a lot of modern elements, but I also hear some kind-of classic, and some nostalgic stuff.  Is that something that you guys do on purpose, mixing the modern and the nostalgic stuff, or does it just kind of come out that way?

    Allah-Las: Well, since it's being made now, it's going to sound modern in some capacity.
    That's the modern thing about it.  It's music being made now by people alive now.  But we also like a lot of old music, so that's in there, too.  It's not a very conscious thing.
    With the sounds we like, it just adds up.

    a3

    HEX: So it just comes about organically then?

    Allah-Las: Yeah, we didn't get together like, "Let's make an old-sounding band."  We just kind of got together and started playing music together and we were all inspired and influenced by a lot of the same stuff, and a lot of that's older stuff, so it just kind of came out that way.

    HEX: When you write your songs, do you guys write lyrics first, and then construct the songs around it, or do you guys just jam and get the music, and then put lyrics to it?  How does it usually come about?

    Allah-Las: Well, the first record, it was mostly that someone would have a riff or something, and we would jam on it and make the parts, and then Miles would go and write lyrics for it.  For the most part, that's how the first record went.  The second record, I wrote some songs, Miles wrote some songs, and we just put them together with all of us, all the input, to make them what they are now.

    a6

    HEX: So it's almost a different each time, kind of based on where you're at.

    Allah-Las: Yeah.  It's kind of how it happened after being on the road for so long after the first record.
    You never know what's going to become a song and what's not.  Maybe you'll think of a lyrical idea, or maybe you'll think of a musical idea that forms into something great.

    HEX: To finish up:  What are you guys listening to currently?  What would we find on your playlists?

    Allah-Las: We've got this blog called Reverberation Radio.  It's a podcast we do with us and six of our close friends, and every week, we have a 30-minute playlist, and share music around and post it up.  So that's the best way to, to find out what we're listening to, is... Too much stuff to name, really.
    That’s kind-of our outlet for sharing the stuff that inspires us.

  • Ghost Writer: Ricki Bedenbaugh - "Keep On Pushin'"

    Professional skateboard filming takes a lot more than just pushing a red button. Capturing some of the gnarliest tricks is now being combined with unreal skate spots and scenery to become it's own art form. Recently The Berrics and RED Digital Cinema held a unique and innovative contest called REDirect. REDirect is a celebration of skateboard film making featuring 11 of the most visionary filmmakers in the world. Each filmer is responsible for directing the overall look and feel of their version of the modern skate video as we know it. Given a RED Epic camera (the industry standard for Hollywood movies, and retailing for $35,000 big ones) and complete creative control to bring his vision of skateboarding to life.

    products_primary_Epic-XProBundle

    Our good friend, awesome filmer, and overall nice guy, Ricki Bedenbaugh was selected as one of the 11 filmers to participate in this exclusive contest. Some focused on scenery, some focused on tricks, some used crazy editing techniques and some even used their pets. Ricki focused on the most important part of skateboarding: pushing around and enjoying the experience. He used some of today's best skaters, some skateboarding legends, and even a kid who just stepped foot on a board. The finished product is called "Keep On Pushin" and if it doesn't inspire you to go push around on a skateboard, I don't know what will...

    Keep On Pushin' - RICKI BEDENBAUGH

    Here are some exclusive words of insight and what inspired "Keep On Pushin" from Ricki, himself:

    Pushing is the first thing you learn to do on a skateboard and no matter how old you are you'll always be able to do that.  There's no age limit to skateboarding, Natas Kaupas started at 3, and he's 45. Ryder, the little kid I ended Keep On Pushin' with, is 3 years old.  I think it's pretty awesome to see someone start skateboarding, and know it's the beginning of something that will last a lifetime.

    That's the beauty of it, you can basically walk out your front door and the world is your skatepark. Well, until a security guard, police, or some 72 year old lady kicks you out for skating a parking block, but that's what makes skateboarding so much fun.

    No matter where you are in this world, no matter how old you are when you hear the sound of a skateboard coming down the street or a sidewalk, you're going to look, it's just a natural reaction.  You never know, it could be your friend, or it could be some guy going to the liquor store.  Hell, it could even be Ray Barbee!  There is nothing else in this world that has that sound.

    Skateboarding is my life. There is nothing that has been a part of my life as long as skateboarding has.  My father gave me a Variflex Hi-Tail for Christmas in 1985, and because of this little wooden toy, I've traveled the world, been to places I never thought I would go, seen things I thought I would never see, met and became friends with my all of my childhood heroes, and most of all, learned lifelong lessons. This is why I made Keep On Pushin'.  It's my way of thanking skateboarding for all it has given me.  None of this would of happened without skateboarding.

    Skateboarding truly is the Fountain of Youth.
