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).

With Sonic Youth on indefinite hiatus
, the band members are keeping themselves busy with other projects. Thurston Moore is playing solo shows
centered around his latest solo album, the Beck-produced Demolished Thoughts
, with a band he jokingly(?) referred to this past Friday night as "Dush Krew
" in honor of his crush on actress Eliza Dushku. Kim Gordon recently designed clothes for French brand Surface to Air
, is currently playing shows with Bill Nace as part of the noise improvisation duo Body/Head
, and was kind enough recently to share her favorite taco recipe
. Lee Ranaldo is poised to release his first song-oriented solo album on Matador Records
; he debuted the music video for the first single
("Off the Wall") today on his website. Steve Shelley played drums on Lee's new album, recently collaborated with Pete Nolan
of Magik Markers (Sonic Youth's most interesting
protégés) on Nolan's side-project Spectre Folk, and is currently drumming for Chicago's Disappears
whose new album
is out via Kranky records in March. Meanwhile, Jim O'Rourke is preparing to curate the All Tomorrow's Parties I'll Be Your Mirror Festival
in Tokyo this April, where he will also perform his 1999 album Eureka
in full with a 12-piece band.

of Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth
fame. Semicoherent Bob Dylan review, a paean to Kerouac, and an entertaining interview with William Burroughs. Pretentious, but, uh, you know, if you're into that sort of thing...
There's some more stuff of his around his
