If you haven’t caught onto the latest British Invasion, you’re missing out on all the fun. An influx of talented producers from across the pond have been reviving UK Garage to much acclamation. The latest ones to break onto the scene, Bondax, are a bit of an anomaly. The teenage duo, comprised of George Townsend and Adam Kaye, are from a small town of 1,000 people just outside Lancaster in the rural English countryside. Though their beginnings may be humble, their sound is anything but. The pair recently gave their two-step treatment to Blackstreet’s R&B classic, “No Diggity.” The remix is a little faster than the original with a prominent funky bass line and a splash of samples. Stream it below.

From the press release announcing Black Flag’s new single, “Down in the Dirt,” emphasis mine, misspelling of theremin is theirs:
SST Records is proud to announce a free download of the first new BLACK FLAG song in many years. On the upcoming 22 song LP to be released this summer, “Down in the Dirt” features Ron Reyes on vocals, Greg Ginn on guitar/theramin, My War bassist Dale Nixon on bass, and Gregory A Moore on drums. The band will begin touring in May in both Europe and the U.S. ***note: not to be confused with the ‘fake’ Flag band currently covering the songs of BLACK FLAG in an embarrassingly weak “mailing it in” fashion*** We urge you to check out the real BLACK FLAG when they hit your area.
The other Black Flag in question, is FLAG. FLAG features other former members of the legendary hardcore punk band, Black Flag, in Keith Morris, Dez Cadena, Bill Stevenson, and Chuck Dukowski. FLAG is also on tour this summer, and we can only hope FLAG and Black Flag’s tour buses cross paths so this feud can move off the internet and into the real world. Shit’s about to get good.
And, oh, yeah, if you wanna hear the new Black Flag song, by the totally not weak, not mailing it in version of the band, go here.
Yesterday, thrash metal gods Slayer posted an open letter to fans regarding the ill health of guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who suffered a spider bite last year that eventually left him in a medically induced coma, from which he was slowly recovering.
