Comments Off on Foals: Now With Added Stage Invasion and Esben & The Witch Pics!

I quite fancy me some Foals. I like their guitars. I like their bass and drums. I like the intensity of singer Yannis. And I really like their latest album Total Life Forever. I also really enjoyed THE STAGE INVASION at the Vancouver gig. I say as much in this review. Plus, feast your eyes on the pretty pictures as well.

Comments Off on Rockhands of the Year: Mark Atomos Pilon’s MALOIK (with bonus Pete Fowler!)

Check out the most amazing rockhand, Maloik, by artist Mark Atomos Pilon. Inspired by and drawn for the BackstageRider’s very own Devil’s Horn Corner: the Rockhands Gallery, this is some seriously sexy piece of art. And if you fancy it, you can also read about my fascination with funky and rocktacular artists.
