Motörhead Are Recording! Motörhead Are Recording!


This morning, I woke up at the ass-crack to move my car. On the way, I almost startled a skunk. I live in an urban area. I don’t expect to see skunks like that. Later, I was looking out my window, and saw a fucking possum (or opossum, if you’re Irish) walking around in the […]

Steel Panther Recording Third LP

Steel Panther

Our pals over at The Gauntlet claim a new Steel Panther album is in the works. This, of course, is depressing news.
