Anthony Bourdain interview

As someone who understands that food is intricately linked to the history and culture of a place, writer (Kitchen Confidential), TV host (Parts Unknown) and former chef (Les Halles) Anthony Bourdain has been in a unique position over the past decade to explore and examine countries around the world through their cuisine. Bourdain doesn't just hit all the typical tourist spots; instead he explores countries that may not always be on every travel show. So it isn't that much of a stretch that he sat down for an interview with to discuss some of his experiences travelling and eating around the globe, including getting caught in Beirut in 2006, his visit to Iran and his time in Gaza during the filming of Parts Unknown.


A comprehensive look at Winnipeg's rock history

Winnipeg has a long and storied history when it comes to the intersection of punk, noise rock and heavy-hitting bands like Kittens, KEN Mode and Meatrack. Alone on the frozen prairies and drawn into basements and dingy jam spaces to make music when the temperature dips below freezing, Manitoban musicians have been turning out loud, aggressive, uncompromising bands since the '80s. Away from the glare of the music industry and driven by DIY values, local bands have been in a unique position to carve out their space. Winnipeg has been a hotbed for what one local label, No List Records, calls " the new noise of the North." Looking back at some of the labels and bands that have been the foundation of the scene, Noisey's Sheldon Birnie (who's also the editor of Stylus magazine) highlights some of the influential acts who have called Winnipeg home.


Video of the week -- Union Stockyards -- Garbage Hill

Shot by local filmmaker Randy Frykas, Garbage Hill is the debut video from local punk act Union Stockyards. Fresh from the release of its free EP, the group is racking up YouTube views and downloads from around the world, thanks to the extremely positive reviews the EP has been getting on the web. With its fresh approach to old-school-influenced hardcore and punk rock, you'll be hearing a lot more about Union Stockyards as the group works on its debut album.


Stream of the week: Future -- Move That Dope, featuring Pharrell (R3ll & Lambo Remix )

Fresh off his debut broadcast for BBC Radio 1Xtra's Diplo and Friends, local DJ/producer Lambo (aka John Lambert) is preparing to play alongside Kevin Saunderson, Addison Groove, Griz, longwalkshortdock and a slew of other forward-thinking performers at the 5th annual Manitoba Electronic Music Exhibition (MEME), Aug. 14-17. Lambo will perform at the Cube after-party at Pantages Playhouse from 2 a.m. to 3 a.m., right after the U.K.'s Addison Groove. A resident DJ at some of the city's hottest dance parties including Together and Devotion, Lambo has getting a lot of attention from outside the province for his skillful remixes and the deadly dance floor weapons coming out of his studio. Becoming the first Winnipeg artist to get recognition on Diplo's critically acclaimed radio show has to be huge break for Lambert and will hopefully open up more doors for the talented DJ and producer.
