Celebrity reviews: B.O.B. – “The Adventures of Bobby Ray”

Hey there Gordon Brown, have a listen to the new album by long-term mixtape rapper B.O.B., he’s taking a more poppy direction on it, tell me what you think:


Mondeo Pop European Holiday

It always made little sense how mid-00s internet music pundits would cry a fie upon the British top 40 for not housing random Balkan dancehall producers or Icelandic countrypop divas, because the 90s had shown that The Official UK Chart Company was unlikely to be troubled by any songs that had a legitimately chart-conquering feel, but happened to hail from foreign climes, let alone by bedroom producers from Caracas. So ILB is proud to present to you a brief tribute to two classic Mondeo Pop joints from that time period that ne’er crossed-over. Read more…

RIP Guru

April 20, 2010 1 comment

There was part of me that wanted to going into some sort of spiel here over how Guru was the first time you had the death of a major performer in hip-hop where people would have had time to get used to the idea that the artist was ill, the artist was dying and that the artist was dead (Dilla did his dying in private, everyone else got capped). But then, I don’t know, I kinda don’t feel that this is the time or the place for half-assed sociology. Read more…

ZX Spectrum game “The Biz”

They’ve taken their lumps on IchLugeBullets over the years, but at the end of the day, there’s something to be said for working class northern indie girls. And that thing is “it’s very easy to have sex with them as long as you’re prepared to make the tiniest effort”. For instance, can you take a picture of a dilapidated seaside town shopfront and put a lomo filter on it in Photoshop? Congratulations, you can fuck a WCNIG. Can you pour sparkling wine into a plastic mug while you sit on a swingset eating batter bits? Congratulations, you can fuck a WCNIG. And if you even so much as mention The Freshies, you get full-hole visitation rights for the following 12 months. Read more…

Oh shit, it’s that one time Peter Steele was on Ricki Lake

Whether he was busy having a massive dick, making awful music, or being in negotations to appear in a reality TV show with Randy Savage and Phil Helmuth, Peter Steele was always a man of minor interest. And now he’s dead, so rather than listening to his, really really really bad, recorded output, enjoy these video clips of his brief career as a talk show interest. Read more…

Songs for Zinging Lovers: An interview with The Indelicates

ILB has never hidden its adoration for The Indelicates. “American Demo”, a bucket of bile frozen and carved into something truly beautiful, is a top 10 album of the 00s around these parts, and when it comes to the noble art of trolling, for us they rank just below TISM and just above those 4Chan kids who send pizzas round to the houses of teenagers who’ve just committed suicide. The new Indelicates album, “Songs for Swinging Lovers”, is out Monday, and “Sympathy for the Devil”, its lead street single, has a video as seen above, notable for a) how it kinda sounds like The Pogues if you take the vocals off b) the tapdancing bit which feels like something from The Harry Hill Show circa 1998 c) Julia’s outfit, which caused us to spend around 15 minutes trying to find the appopriate gif from Friday to insert into this review. Here it is:

Anyway, we have actually interviewed The Indelicates, and we hereby present to you the end results. Enjoy. Read more…
