1984 was an awesome year; my mom had just kicked me out, so I moved from L.A to S.F and lived in peace punk bliss. During this time, I really started getting into positive punk & some of my favorite voices were female. I mean, when I first listened to the Cocteau Twins, I almost lost my mind; and without question, Siouxsie and the March Violets were different drugs unto themselves. There was one band that combined everything I loved about positive punk into one sonic force, and that was Germany’s X-Mal Deutschland. Anja Huwe, the vocalist, had an ethereal but very powerful voice that carried me off to another planet. I could not understand a word she sang, but I felt every word in my blackened heart. Musically, this band had the power of Joy Division but also had the transcendental quality of floating spirits. As a 15-yr-old, I would read about their shows in England and the music press would say that live, they were otherworldly. To me, that would not be hard to believe, because even on record this band pushed the limits. Now check out this off the chain X-Mal Deutschland video essay!
From the ashes of Cultus Sabbati comes HK8, and their music is pretty intense. The first song I have heard from this band is a cover Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows.” To go along with this tune, HK8 has created a very powerful video and it’s on honor to be premiering it on CVLT Nation today! I know one thing is certain – I’m super excited to hear more music from HK8!
Being a child of the 70′s, Stevie Nicks’ voice was always around me and was a part of my days growing up in Venice. Even now, at least once a week or more we have her voice blasting out of our speakers. As parents, when we see our little girl Sinead dancing to the sounds of the white witch, we get stoked! Stevie Nicks is more than just a great singer, she is also an unreal songwriter whose talent transcends generations. This is why today CVLT Nation’s favorite Tumblr is Belladonna aka Fuck Yeah Stevie Nicks. So take a journey into a portal where this icon reigns supreme. Check out some killer photos, documentaries and much more…Much respect due, Belladonna!
