Two Stories Which Eulogise Keith Flint and Luke Perry Perfectly.

Two massive 90s icons passed away yesterday, Prodigy frontman Keith Flint and Hollywood actor Luke Perry.

Flint, who became the poster boy for the 90s rave scene, was found dead at his house in Essex, he was 49 years old. Perry, who broke hearts in the American teen drama Beverly Hills 90210, suffered a massive stroke last week and never recovered. He died yesterday aged 52 at a hospital in Los Angeles.

Loads of people took to social media to recount tales of both men, but one constant emerged and that was of their kindness. Even though it felt like a large portion of our youth had perished here at HMS Friday we took solace from two stories, (one from singer James Blunt and the other from actor Colin Hanks), which we thought perfectly summed up life’s most important lesson. If you be can one thing, in the limited time you have on this planet, be nice. People will remember your actions forever.

I only met him once but the story is too good not tell given todays sad events. My wife and I are on a plane back from Mexico. Couple of rows ahead of us, these two brothers, young kids, are beating the hell out of eachother. Their poor parents are powerless to stop the crying, yelling and screaming. If you're a parent you understand. Sometimes there's nothing you can do. It was like this for close to two hours. Then about 10 minutes before landing it starts to get real bad. Out of no where, a man comes from first class. Hat, beard, sunglasses, blowing up a balloon. He ties it off, hands it off like he's holding out a sword to a king. Kneeling, Head down, arms up. Kids calm down in milliseconds. Plane damn near bursts into applause. 15 minutes longer and it probably would have started WWIII, but we landed before that could happen. We get off the plane, are waiting on line in customs. Finally get a good look at the guy and I say to my wife "Holy shit. I think that balloon man/hero" is Luke Perry". As luck would have it we end up standing next to each other. Out of the blue he turns to me and says some kind words about Fargo, which kinda blew my mind. I start singing his praises about how long I've admired him and also about the move with the balloon. "That's a pro move! You can't teach that!" I say. He tells me he always flies with a couple of balloons for that very reason, to give to screaming kids. Don't know if that's true, but have no reason to believe it wasn't. Guy seemed like a true gent. Gone way too damn soon. Also, I'll be damned if I don't start traveling with some spare balloons ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ #promove #rip #lukeperry #truegent

LCD Soundsystem’s Music Vid Brings All The Feels

Here’s the official music video for LCD Soundsystem’s latest track ‘oh baby’ and it’s simplistic beauty makes it one of this year’s best. It stars Sissy Spacek and David Strathairn as two aged scientists frantically trying to map out an extremely complicated equation for something big. I’ll leave it at that. The video is directed by Rian Johnson, a man who surprisingly didn’t wreck out childhood with his brilliant Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, proving once more he’s a talent to pay attention to.
 

Muse’s Latest Music Video Is Rammed with 80s References.

I personally don’t mind Muse as a band but throughout their career they’ve always managed to produce some of the more inventive and entertaining music videos.Their latest for the single Pressure is no exception.

Directed by filmaker Lance Drake it stars the band and legendary actor Terry Crews and is rammed full of pop culture and movie references from the 80s, ranging from the more obvious Back To The Future and Critters to the more obscure like The Exterminator and Fright Night.

It merits a couple of watches to catch them all. Good luck.

The Heaviest Rock Cover Of A Grease Song You’ll Ever Hear.

This music video from rock outfit Tragedy entitled All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyondย is a masterful cover version of the iconic John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John track You’re The One That I Want.

The fact that it’s a heavy metal cover is one thing but there’s so much more going on in this track with homage paid to Nirvana, Black Sabbath, Twisted Sister and more.

Nickelback No Longer Look Or Sound Like Nickelback

I’ve never been a fan of Nickelback, though I was once dragged to one of their concerts by an ex-girldfriend, (emphasis on ex-girlfriend), but their new single She Keeps Me Up is a large departure for the rock group.

Apart from looking like a bunch of middle-aged divorcees hitting the club, witht their 15 year-old suits and frosted tips, their sound has mutated into some sort of dance/disco ear ebola. You know, like a bargain bin version of Maroon 5.

Better Call Saul Now Has A Song.

Here’s the official Better Call Saul song perfromed by country legend Junior Brown.

It aired last week in the States and due to copyright laws the video wasn’t available to view in the UK until today. The music video also serves as a teaser for the forthcoming spin-off series with snippets from future episodes. February can’t come quick enough.
