Today we're bringing you the exclusive premiere of an interview with Melvins, where members Buzz "King Buzzo" Osbourne and Dale Crover talk their latest EP, The Bulls and the Bees , released earlier this year through Scion AV, as well as their video for the song "The War on Wisdom." The pair also briefly propose that James Cameron's record-breaking Avatar may in fact be the worst movie ever made.

Longstanding UK punk band Goldblade are to release a t-shirt criticising the Olympic games in their current form. The shirt's design, below the Goldblade logo and five rings in the Olympic style, reads as follows:

Snowden, who were signed to Jade Tree Records back in the label's halcyon days in the 2000s, have regrouped and signed to Serpents & Snakes Records. the label formed by Kings of Leon. (You know, the band that put out this incredibly popular - and actually pretty decent - song.)
Snowden, which is essentially the vehicle for Austin, TX-based Jordan Jeffares, recorded the follow up to their sole Jade Tree Records release, 2006's Anti-Anti . The new album is titled No One In Control and it's due out in the Fall. The first single from the album is titled "The Beat Comes."
Whether fairly or unfairly, the BitTorrent protocol and software has been pretty heavily associated with piracy, but the company is trying to make inroads into legitimacy through new partnerships with musicians. The tech company is partnering with noted cut-and-paste artist DJ Shadow to put together an exclusive set of content that will hopefully generate some money for the artist.
In this new plan, you will be able to download exclusive material associated with his new archival compilation, Hidden Transmissions From The MPC Era (1992-1996). (Fans may note that this is material preceding Shadows legendary Endtroducing…) When you download the bundle, you will be given an offer for software from a BitTorrent partner and if you choose to install it, the company and musician will receive part of the payout.
