Nathan Williams' New Band Sweet Valley and The Rise & Fall of The Clash

Nathan Williams’ Sweet Valley, a Neckface party in Hollywood, and The Rise and Fall of The Clash. I’m Eddie DaRoza, and here’s your Daily Detour.

 

You probably know Nathan Williams of Wavves for his his fuzzy buzzy guitar songs about weed, girls, and aliens. Well Nathan has a brand new project that sounds absolutely nothing like you know him. This new band, Sweet Valley, is a collaboration with his brother. They’re released one song called Total Carnage and it sounds like motown on on mushrooms. Yeah you can picture that right now, can’t you! Here’s a clip.
 
Last weekend the horror-film graffiti artist Neckface hosted a party in Hollywood. I was super bummed I couldn’t make it, but had a very important date with the Orange County fair and a Willie Nelson concert. Luckily, the guys at Altamont shot some cool photos of the art and party. Looks like a blast. And a few of the Face’s prints are for sale online. Saving a spot in my bathroom for this sucker.
 
And finally today‚Ķ many documentaries have been produced about the legendary Clash. And pretty much every single one is cool to watch. But have you ever seen a movie devoted to the fall of The Clash? The Rise and Fall of The Clash is a new film that aims to figure out why The Clash disbanded out of nowhere. Here’s a clip.
 
Ok that’s all for me. I’m outta here. You have a nice rest of your day. Later.
