King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard veer into metal with their thundering, surreal new song “Planet B.” “Open your eyes and shoot the dingo/All this shit goes out the window,” the Australian psych-rockers bellow over fuzz-bass and harmonized hammer-on guitar leads. “Multi-flashing, rusting tractors/Dying heroes … There is no Planet B/Open your eyes and see.” The band paired the single with a jarringly violent video. At various points in the clip, the seven members — all decked out in matching orange attire — bark like dogs, smile demonically and run around an empty highway before a disturbing finale in which a stranger shoots them all and lights their bodies on fire.

Aleka's Attic were an alternative folk/rock band from Gainesville, Florida, formed by River Phoenix and his sister Rain.he original line up of Aleka's Attic included River as lead singer and played guitar; his younger sister Rain sang, but, contrary to many incorrect reports, did not play keyboards in the band (although she did play various percussion, such as tambourine); Tim Hankins played viola; Josh McKay was the bass player; Josh Greenbaum, a friend of River’s from Florida, was the drummer. About choosing the band's name, "Aleka's a fictional poet philosopher who gathered friends in his attic to discuss his ideas, when Aleka dies they form a band to share his beliefs with others through music". River was offered to sign a two-year development deal with Island Records to develop the band and record a marketable album, which was not accomplished in the time allotted due to River's ongoing film work schedule. So Island, retaining the option to continue or not, opted out of the deal based on the non-marketability of River's newer material. River then decided to record an album independently for the band. The group disbanded in 1993.

"Μπορείς να ζεις χωρίς να κοιμάσαι καθόλου,επειδή φοβάσαι ότι αν αποκοιμηθείς θα χάσεις το σώμα και την ψυχή σου?Μπορείς να ζεις με την αίσθηση ότι είσαι η σκιά κάποιου άλλου και να νομίζεις ότι υπάρχεις μόνο στη φαντασία ενός μικρού αγοριού που είναι προορισμένο να γίνει rock star,το καταραμένο είδωλο μιας ολόκληρης γενιάς?Μέσα από τα μάτια του Homer Boda Alienson,του φανταστικού φίλου του αρχηγού των Nirvana,στον οποίο μάλιστα απηύθυνε και το αποχαιρετιστήριο γράμμα του πριν αυτοκτονήσει,μεταφερόμαστε στο ποιητικό και καταστροφικό σύμπαν του Kurt Cobain.........." Τομάζο Πίντσιο,"Kurt Cobain,Καταραμένο είδωλο"

Can was a German experimental rock band formed in Cologne, West Germany, in 1968 by the core quartet of Holger Czukay (bass), Irmin Schmidt (keyboards), Michael Karoli (guitar), and Jaki Liebezeit (drums). The group cycled through several vocalists, including Malcolm Mooney (1968–70) and Damo Suzuki (1970–73), as well as various temporary members. Drawing from backgrounds in the avant-garde and jazz, Can incorporated minimalist, electronic, and world music elements into their often psychedelic and funk-inflected music.[1] They have been widely hailed as pioneers of the German krautrock scene. Can had occasional commercial success, with singles such as "Spoon" and "I Want More" reaching national singles charts. Through albums such as Monster Movie (1969), Tago Mago (1971), Ege Bamyasi (1972) and Future Days (1973), the band exerted a considerable influence on avant-garde, experimental, post-punk, ambient, new wave and electronic music.

"The Black Angel's Death Song" is a song by the Velvet Underground, from their 1967 debut album The Velvet Underground & Nico. It was written by Lou Reed and John Cale. In a footnote to the lyrics, Lou Reed wrote: "The idea here was to string words together for the sheer fun of their sound, not any particular meaning. According to Cale, Sterling Morrison refused to play bass on the song because he disliked having to play it on "Venus in Furs",hence, Cale overdubbed the bassline while Morrison stuck to his usual guitar. In late 1965 Al Aronowitz arranged for the Velvets to play at the Café Bizarre in Greenwich Village for a fortnight in December 1965;[5] while there they played a "furious" version of "Black Angel's Death Song"; the manager ordered them not to play that song again, to which the band responded by playing it again "with a vengeance", and were sacked.
