As many of you know, punk and hardcore changed my life by showing me that through resourceful independence people can build their own scene and be creative on their own terms. Ed Colver shot some amazing photos of the hardcore scene and the picture below became the cover for Steven Blush’s excellent book “American Hardcore”. Anyone who cares about the influence of indie music should check out this event.

LIFE REMOTE CONTROL is 90 minutes of ruthless quick-fire positive brainwashing from the front line. Critics complain of a generation, raised on commercials, cable TV, and music videos, has lost its
attention span. This movie sets out to prove that our visual impatience is not a weakness; it is our greatest strength. No one can pull the wool over your eyes if theyâ€™re pointing in two different directions at once.
Film features the Artistic Innovation of: Shepard Fairey, Banksy, KAWS, WK Interact, Ron English, FAILE, Brian McGee, Malcolm McLaren, Space Invader, Monsieur A. and many moreâ€¦
After Shepard did some work for the Rollins Show on IFC, the Rollins camp asked if he would be interested in doing a poster for their upcoming tour. The tour features the original line up of X and definitely is something you don’t want to miss! Check out the design that Shepard came up with to pay tribute to two great bands.

Icons is â€˜a dayâ€™ and â€˜the lifeâ€™ of todayâ€™s maverick entrepreneurs, entertainers, and pop culture institutions. They make, break or rewrite the rules for everyone and everything that follows. Icons gives viewers a true inside look at what makes their heroes tick.
â€œKeep your eyes and mind open, and question everythingâ€ is the motto that artist, activist and pop culture pioneer Shepard Fairey lives by. While he was a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, 19
year old Fairey began plastering images of wrestler Andre the Giant on any surface he could find. Almost 20 years later that image has become known around the world and is the foundation of the phenomenon called Obey Giant. G4 TV takes a look at the life of a true original on Icons: Shepard Fairey, Saturday, August 12, 7:30 PM e/t
Icons: Shepard Fairey premieres on G4 Saturday August 12 @ 7:30pm ET.
