Odd Future: From Their Violent Lyrics to Real Life (NSFW)

UPDATE: The BAND DENIES EVERYTHING and here’s what we have to say about that

NSFW due to language

Odd Future Voodoo Experience 2011 New Orleans All photos of Odd Future are by Amy Harris

Odd Future is a rap group lead by Tyler, The Creator. The band is noted for their violent lyrics against women. It’s song lyrics from “Bitch Suck Dick” that demonstrate Tyler’s lyrical violence against women. One of the opening lines of the song states, “By the way, we do punch bitches.”  For Tyler he is quite serious and proved yesterday that he’s a man of his lyrical word along with the band.

Odd Future Voodoo Experience 2011 New OrleansYesterday on the last day of The Voodoo Experience, Odd Future took the stage and it started with a bang, actually more with a punch. Tyler arrived onstage and proclaimed his hatred for photographers. He started exclaiming that fans pay big money to be there and to be upfront, so the music photographers (aka the press) shouldn’t be in the barricade. When other members of the group joined in on the anti-photographer rant, the crowd started to eat it up. Left Brain, Vyron Dalyan Turner,  jumped down onto the speakers in front of the stage and threw water on the photographers’ cameras. He kicked a video camera over, and said, “We are going to fuck you up!” He then looked directly at Amy Harris from The First 3 Songs and said, “I hate you bitch!” and proceeded to slap her and knock her camera over. “Everybody was in shock,” Amy tells me. “Some photographers left as Tyler was saying ‘We are going to Fuck you up’ and some left as he (Left Brain) slapped me.”

After the tirade on the photo pit, the band proceeded with their set and the photographers were escorted out of the pit. Amy says that she is not pressing charges against the band.

Amy is an experienced photographer, and she currently writes for  Cincinnati’s CityBeat, The First 3 Songs, and for us here at The Dead Hub, and is represented by Corbis Images. She’s been covering live concerts for 4 years and she tells me, “I’ve seen them (artists) throw water and complain, but never violence.”

The Youtube video has very poor sound quality. Will keep our eyes out for better ones if available.

Editor’s Note: I really feel compelled to say something here, not only because Amy freelances for us, but because of the situation as a whole.  If Odd Future REALLY felt strongly about not having photographers in the photo pit covering their set they could have made that happen instead of inflicting violence to get their message across. It is not uncommon for artists to have restrictions during their live performances. Some artist will request to not have any photographers during their set even in festival settings. You can also bet that The Dead Hub will never be covering Tyler or Odd Future again.  His actions were uncalled for.

Oh yes, one more thing, Tyler lives with his mother.

Lollapalooza’s 20th Birthday Is Coming!!!!

Oh how Lollapalooza has grown! It’s amazing how a farewell show for Jane’s Addiction could manifest into a growing mass of 115+ acres of multiple stages showcasing 130-something artists, festival grounds filled with farmers markets, hosting local gourmet fair, and enough arts and crafts to make your head spin!

Two (HED)s are Better Than One

(Hed) p.e.
The Rave – Milwaukee, WI

(Hed) p.e. is:
Jared Gomes – vocals
Mawk (Mark Young) – bass
DJ Product © 1969 (Doug Boyce) – turntables
Jaxon – guitar
Trauma – drums

(Hed) p.e. have been around for 17 years with 9 albums to their credit. They have influenced several big name bands with their style of music that ranges from rock, rap, hardcore, and metal. They have teamed up with Mushroomhead again on the (Hed) to Head tour 2.0; each band taking turns headlining every other city. Tonight, Mushroomhead were the headliners.

After what seemed like a longest teardown between the openers and (Hed) p.e., (Hed) p.e. started their set about 20 min late. There was hip/hop music playing in the background as the crowd waited chanting for (Hed) p.e. and Mushroomhead.  The lights dimmed and (Hed) p.e. walked out to “Truth Rising” from their latest self titled album, followed by “Live or Die Free.” The stage setup was kept simple; it was all about the music and at times rants of singer, Gomes. Gomes and DJ Product prowled the stage like two MC’s going back and forth with lyrics before DJ Product settled back in on the turntables & pumped the crowd up. The crowd was into it – from the jumping and pits erupting in the middle of the floor, yet the intensity increased when Mushroomhead had their turn.

(Hed) p.e. reached back in to their music catalog, playing hits off their first couple albums. As a band, they were very tight – playing all styles and ranges to go along with Gomes kinetic energy as a lead vocalist. At times, they matched perfect and a few times, just did not flow well.  The set l included a guest appearance from one of the guys from Mushroomhead. The favor was returned when Trauma played the water drums with Mushroomhead for their set.

With only an hour for their set, (Hed) p.e. jammed in as many songs as they could but honestly, I felt they could have played more.  Gomes felt the need to talk to the crowd about the political world we are in, how Wisconsin is dealing with union issues, and Fox news being a bunch of liars to the American people. Now, I don’t mind a little speech in a show, but it felt like it went on longer than it should and set a buzzkill to the show. Yes, (Hed) p.e. is a social/political band, but let the music provide the message.

With that put aside, the music and show was great fun. I had only heard about their energy on stage, as this was my first time seeing them live, and they did not disappoint.
If you’re looking for a show to see that is not your typical rock show and with lots of visual performance and energy, then you won’t want to miss this two-headed monster tour.

Hollywood Undead reveal teaser for new album American Tragedy




Hollywood Undead are back! The band has just revealed a teaser on their Facebook page which features snippets of a new track that will be featured on the album American Tragedy. The song will be featured on their new album American Tragedy (in-stores March 2011). The new release is the follow-up to their controversial gold selling debut, Swan Songs.

Hollywood Undead’s first single from the album, “Hear Me Now” is already climbing the modern rock charts. It has been the #1 most added record 2 weeks in a row at Alternative and Active Radio combined!

“Been a long time, were out of the studio, done recording, beat the shit out of ourselves to make sure our second record is better then our first,” said J-Dog.  “Was hard but we finally finished it and are ready to release our first song, Da Kurlzz cried when we finished it harder then he did when he lost his virginity on leave from the navy on a beach in Germany. The song is called ‘Hear Me Now.’ One of my favorite songs we’ve ever written.”

The group is an explosive cocktail of hip hop, rock and metal, forging an alternative style that carved out a loyal and die-hard fan base since their debut on the LA scene in 2005. They craft incisive, sharp and sarcastic raps that slash the jugular of mainstream pop culture. Donning individual masks, Hollywood Undead possess a dark aesthetic that’s connected to their hometown’s depravity.

Kottonmouth Kings
Long Live the Kings

If someone would have approached me in June and said that I would a. listen to a Kottonmouth Kings album and b. like it; I would have laughed out loud. I appreciate what they do and am amazed that they have had this longevity. Their success is undeniable – if only within a devoted niche of fans who know good music when they hear it. [Read more…]

The CD/DVD combo ranges from covers of Zeppelin and Operation Ivy to live performances from The Sunshine Theater in New Mexico and The Marquee Theater in Tempe Arizona.
I was recently introduced to these six Los Angeles natives and I quickly associated them with the likes of Hed PE, and by that I mean their live performance and sound. Their live performance is immense to say the least just check out the crowd on the DVD! The energy from the album will knock your socks off.
