  • 'Wet Hot American Summer' coming back as Netflix miniseries

    The film Wet Hot American Summer came out Summer 2001 and didn't do much at the box office but had cult hit written all over it. A satire of '80s summer camp movies, it was written by David Wain and Michael Showalter of The State and featured most of the rest of that comedy in the cast. It also starred a lot of folks who'd soon be a lot more famous -- Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, and Elizabeth Banks, to name a few -- and featured songs by Shudder to Think's Craig Wedren. You probably know all this.

    Director David Wain, and pretty much all of the original cast (including Cooper, Rudd, Pohler and Banks), are going back to camp for an eight-part miniseries, subtitled "First Day at Camp," that will air on Netflix this summer. They just debuted a trailer for the miniseries, which doesn't…

  • Slipknot: ‘It’s a war of art – and we win every time’

    From tragic deaths to acrimonious departures, extreme metallers Slipknot have have endured six years that would have destroyed most other bands. But, with an extraordinary new album and world tour, they’re back and ‘real as hell’

    In October 2014, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor was interviewed by someone he never expected to meet: not someone from the metal press, but the veteran US broadcaster Larry King. “It was fucking weird!” laughs Taylor. “He was an absolute gentleman, one of the coolest people I’ve ever met, but he’s talked to everyone, so it was like ‘No pressure, Corey!’ you know? His producer said that if he’s intrigued, he’ll go off script and he did that a lot after a while. That’s a hell of a compliment.”

  • The playlist: electronic – Carl Craig, Lena Willikens, the return of Sueño Latino and more

    From Carl Craig’s classical excursions to Lena Willikens’s Dusseldorf eclecticism and Juju and Jordash’s ballsy improv: it’s the electronic playlist

    Premiering exclusively on the Guardian is a live improvisation between disgustingly handsome pianist Francesco Tristano and Detroit techno master Carl Craig. Recorded for a Boiler Room session in Germany sponsored by Ballantine’s whisky (whose imagery you might well notice throughout) it comes as part of their Stay True Journeys series. Techno is naturally po-faced, so can seem awfully haughty when it actually tries to be serious and edge its way into the conservatoire. But whether its Villalobos and Loderbauer mining the ECM archives, or Craig and Moritz Von Oswald turning Ravel into dub techno, the worlds of classical music and techno can potentially dovetail beautifully. So it (mostly) proves here as Craig sends acid arpeggios on skewed axes, before Tristano returns with full-blooded house chords. Piano sounds are usually approximated…
