Thriller starring Antonio Banderas as a Los Angeles private detective handed an unusual assignment. As a private eye, Ned Cruz (Banderas) is used to locating people who don't want to be found. However, when he is approached by a Russian boxer (Robert Maillet) to find his missing girlfriend (Sienna Guillory) and the $30 million worth of diamonds in her possession, it is clear that this will not be an everyday job. Nonetheless, as Ned's search takes him into the eccentric company of Adam Nova (James Van der Beek), a Hollywood star with a secret, Fay Neman (Autumn Reeser), a waitress with a passion for physics, and Simon Kestral (Sam Elliott), a billionaire who is determined to replicate the Big Bang, even his private expectations of the strangeness of the case are surpassed. Can Cruz make sense of the bizarre occurrences and track down the missing girl?
Triple bill of police thrillers. 'Big Bang' (2011) stars Antonio Banderas as a Los Angeles private detective handed an unusual assignment. When Ned Cruz (Banderas) is approached by a Russian boxer (Robert Maillet) to find his missing girlfriend (Sienna Guillory) and the $30 million worth of diamonds in her possession, it is clear that this will not be an everyday job. Can Cruz make sense of the bizarre circumstances and track down the missing girl? 'Bad Cop' (2010) is an action thriller set in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans. Johnny Strong stars as Sean Riley, a beleaguered police detective struggling to cope with the recent death of his young son and the subsequent breakdown of his marriage. After a call goes horribly wrong, Riley looks set to lose his job - unless he can solve a series of brutal murders that have sent the city spiralling into gang warfare. In 'Operation Endgame' (2010) a top-secret facility underneath Washington D.C. finds two competing teams of assassins - code-named according to a deck of Tarot cards - at work. When a new employee known only as The Fool (Joe Anderson) arrives for his first day of work, he is alarmed to find his new boss murdered and the entire building rigged with explosives. The Fool must race against the clock to identify the killer and make his escape. Zach Galifianakis, Brandon T. Jackson and Maggie Q co-star.
With 1989's MIND BOMB, while Matt Johnson's songs still address internal guilt, his lyrics here strive to place that guilt more firmly within the context of societal decay, in particular on "Armageddon Days Are Here (Again)". With the addition of Johnny Marr--who had just left the Smiths--on guitar and occasionally harmonica, the music is also fuller and more confident, even introducing Eastern rhythms to the palette, and finally displaying the muscle behind the previous album's punches. Highlights include "Kingdom of Rain", featuring Sinead O'Connor's distinctive vocals, and a lyrical continuation of the crumbling relationship begun on INFECTED's "Slow Train to Dawn". "The Beat(en) Generation", a suspiciously chipper and upbeat track augmented by Marr's trademarked guitar sound, makes no bones about its indictment of political manipulation, while "Gravitate to Me" features stuttering horns and a massive bass line, courtesy of James Eller. If you buy only one The The release, MIND BOMB ought to be it--true to its title, this album will stick in your head for a long time.
The Sunday Times Bestseller and Winner of the NME Best Book Award 2017 Few groups have had a bigger impact than The Smiths and few musicians are as celebrated as Johnny Marr. He is an icon who defined an era and influenced a generation of guitarists. His signature sound was crucial to the Smiths success, but tensions within the band led to his departure in 1987 and the end of the group after just four albums. He was twenty-three years old. Since then, Marr hasn't stopped pushing the boundaries of music. He joined The Pretenders, The The, Modest Mouse and The Cribs and has collaborated with Hans Zimmer. Here, for the first time, he tells his own side of the story. Honest, witty, and moving, Set the Boy Free is the true history of music - told by one of its very own legends. 'I saw Johnny Marr live in person, with The Smiths. He was light on his feet; like quicksilver. He caused the band to swing like crazy. And he smoked his cigarette like a star. I've been influenced ever since.' Iggy Pop
Live performance from English rock band The Who, recorded in London's Hyde Park in June 2015 in celebration of their 50th anniversary.

Biopic of one of pop music's least well known yet greatest influences. Scott Walker's body of work has influenced a greater number of (especially British) indie pop musicians than almost any other single figure yet his name remains largely unknown to the public. What, then, does his influence consist of? This handsome blonde American boy first found success with the Walker Brothers in 1964 - far greater success in the UK than at home in the US. As a solo act, Walker has always been a record company nightmare - commercially unviable yet critically highly lauded. As his genius as a studio master and composer has become manifest he has become steadily more obscure with each album yet other artists have always loved him. Here, a parade of modern pop artists line up to pay tribute to the man's influence on their careers including David Bowie, Johnny Marr, Marc Almond, Radiohead, Jarvis Cocker and Brian Eno.
TOTAL CHAOS is the first book telling Iggy Pop's story of The Stooges from his own words. Grammy winning editor and avid music historian Jeff Gold spent two days at the rock legend's home sharing pictures and memorabilia from his collection. Featuring a trove of unseen photos, TOTAL CHAOS shows and tells, with the help of best-selling author Jon Savage, the story of the Stooges from those tell-all interviews. "Gasp at the awe inspiring memorabilia and frank talk in Total Chaos: The Story of The Stooges/As Told By Iggy Pop"-- Mojo Magazine "Tells the band's revolutionary story through many never-before-published photos and extensive interviews...(and) contributions from Johnny Marr, Josh Homme, Dave Grohl, Joan Jett and Jack White."-- Rolling Stone "A fantastic new book...a must-read for both diehard fans and anyone who wants to learn first-hand from Pop what it was like from the inside looking out in one of the seminal bands of the post-'60s era."-- Esquire
