Support your own- What's the real deal?

We're a little confused. Not bitchin, just confused. Last week we posted a book giveaway contest from an Afro-punk member and blogger, Camille Collins, who recently released her own fiction book about a couple of kids living the "Afro-punk" experience. We asked readers to submit the name of their favorite book to for a chance to… Continue

Morcheeba trio announces 2011 U.S. tour dates!

We were all a bit shocked when Syke Edwards got bumped out of her group Morcheeba back in 2003, but we're glad she made a come back with the Godfrey brothers earlier this year, because her voice is crazy! Even though her side solo projects were personal and we had a chance to connect with Skye, the Morcheeba trio is undeniably a good mash up of… Continue

King's X's "Live Love In London" DVD

If you have a taste for soulful and funky metal, you might wanna check out King's X's new Live DVD, "Live Love In London". During its nearly 30 years of existence, the band has had people talking about whether or not they make "Christian Rock" (they say they don't), about frontman Dug Pinnick's being gay (yes, he already said he is, so what?). What's more interesting is their progressive metal sound influenced by gospel, blues and much… Continue

Who loves Sade here? Ah c'mon fuckers, you know you've cried to "No Ordinary Love" and kissed to "Smooth Operator", don't try to act all tough now.

Yep, they've announced their 2011 world tour, and you know that only happens once in a blue moon (it's been almost 10 years since they toured the U.S., and 17… Continue

Fuck this week revealed

Since the Afro-punk staff already submitted their fuck you fingers and who we're flipping off, we decided we won't anymore because then you'd hear about how pissed we actually are that we don't have enough money to have a festival in London and throw more parties and such. This week, some people in the community seem angry about things beyond our control and apparently out of their control, too. We were really feeling this one particular one about the… Continue

Reasons Kanye Might Think He's Afro-punk

The Internet has been going nuts talking about Kanye West lately, and even we couldn't help jumping in on the conversation about everyone's favorite tragic rapper. After this weeks release of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, we listened to the album, and we weren't too mad at it. But more importantly, it got us thinking about Mr. West's evolving career and mess… Continue

Take alternative hip-hop/rock band The Five One: their latest video was shot by frontman Green in Capetown, South Africa with a mere iPhone 4. And it looks good too!

It's pretty damn refreshing to come across an artist who manages to be funky, glam, rock, and has a sense of humor too! Woo!

WATCH: Noiseaux Collaborates With Indie Filmmakers On New Vid

If you're an avid AP reader, you already know we love us some Noiseaux up in here. :) Their latest video "Nothing Stays The Same (immer wieder)" kinda took us off-guard though. It's actually a pre-existing short-film by indie filmmakers Timo and Thorsten Landsiedel, in which the band doesn't appear. Noiseaux frontwoman Noah Sow released a statement saying: "When I asked Timo whether they would want to (...) create a hybrid… Continue

A video about greed and propaganda in the corporate media? Just what the doctor ordered! Funky soul enfant terrible Bilal collaborated with French director Mikael Colombu to share some of his opinions on today's politics in the (mis-)information age.

Tricky's new video bashes ghetto stars

Tricky is legendary. And not because he's been in the music game for the last 16 years, but damn it, the man isn't aging at all (he's 41) and his "non-able-to-be-classified-in-any-music-genre" sound isn't aging either. His new video for his song "Ghetto Stars," (from his 2010 album, Mixed Race), was released this week and is a bit melodic from what we're used to from this rowdy artist. Directed by Colin O'Toole with vocals from Tricky's latest… Continue
