I've looked at Abbey Road from both sides now...

Flickr user Harvezt brings you The Dark Side of the Covers, which recreates 33 rock album covers as seen from the OPPPOSITE direction. Some of the covers are iconic, others are obscure, some of the interpretations are simple and obvious, others are creative and... interesting. (And some are NSFW, but then, some of the original covers were NSFW).

Fly on your way like an eagle or some monstrous whale eagle hybrid

Not content with piloting Ed Force One during their most recent world tour, Iron Maiden lead singer and certified airline pilot Bruce Dickinson has been funding the construction of the world's longest airplane, the Hybrid Air Vehicle: part plane, part airship. He also plans to fly it around the world. One neat little detail: it's being build in the same hangar that once housed the unfortunate R101 airship. That one used hydrogen to keep it buoyant; this new airship uses helium. Also because it is actually slightly heavier than air, it is in fact a Led Zeppelin.

Be Quick or Be Dead

Et tu?

Beware the Ides of March. Almost everyone knows that the phrase comes from the story of the assassination of Julius Caesar, most familiarly in the Shakespeare version, although "The Life of Augustus," written by Nicolauas of Damascus, contains what is thought to be the earliest narrative of the plot to murder Julius Caesar, based in part on eyewitness accounts. But, not everyone knows that The Ides Of March is also a band [flash intro] (best known for the song "Vehicle") [YouTube], an epistolatory novel by Thornton Wilder (with forward by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.), an instrumental song by Iron Maiden [YouTube], and two paintings, one by Edward Poynter and one by Andrew Wyeth.

DO YOU WANNA HEAR SOMETHING SO HEAVY IT'S LIKE HAVING A BRIDGE KICKED OUT BY A MADMAN?!

"To me, I've always looked upon the stage as a much-hallowed place, a place of worship for real artists, as I said just before. That doesn't just stem from rock n roll days; to me, Judy Garland was a real artist, Al Jolson was a real artist, people like that gave their all and everything for the stage and most of them finished up dying for it as well. In my view, nobody should be allowed to stand on a stage unless they can present the total professional thing, unless they really can sing and really can play. Punk was a total anti-attitude towards music."NWOBHM: How a now-little-known nostalgic reaction to punk called the New Wave of British Heavy Metal changed the world.[much, much more inside]

Death and the Iron Maidens

Rondo Alla Iron Maiden (Program Notes, mp3s). As the name suggests, this new work for string quartet is a classical rondo in the style of the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden. Composer Kurt Mortensen might rather you pay more attention to some of his other works, like this charming folk-tinged trio, but I had to go straight for the silly stuff.

Iron Maiden, electro style

POWERSLAVES: An Elektro Tribute to Iron Maiden A record label in Amsterdam has assembled 14 electro-fied covers of classic tracks by the British metal band. Vocoders, drum machines, and analog synths galore, plus influences as diverse as industrial, synthpop, and Miami bass. Loving tribute? Unholy abomination? Entertaining genre cross-pollination? You decide -- the entire album is available as streaming audio from this Dutch radio station.
