Oh, hello there. We thought we’d kick off September by giving you a little present. Yup, you guessed it, it’s a handy pair of gardening slacks! Oh, wait, no, that’s October. Here, have this lovely Sheena wallpaper instead. Happy September.

WHO DEY? Brian and David, from Vancouver, Canada
WHEN FORMED? 2006
SOUND LIKE: Noisy garage rock that’s fuzzy and a bit woozy, like being on poppers while standing too close to a speaker in a smelly underground club, only minus the crippling headaches that would go with that. They claim to take influence from “your sister”, which we’re gonna tell Dad about
FOR FANS OF: Amusement Parks On Fire, My Vitriol, That weird sugar-coated feeling you get on your teeth the morning after you drink a can of Coke and forget to brush
ON TOUR: End of October through mid-November, all over the shop
It’s Sunday, tomorrow’s a bank holiday, and Back To The Future is the greatest film ever made. Clearly, you should watch it while drinking heavily. Maybe even be a total hero and do the whole trilogy. Plus people seemed to vaguely like last week’s Robocop game. Rules after the jump.

It’s a fucking Bank Holiday one and all. That’s one whole extra day of disgracefulness. Amazing times. Realistically, we’re going to be very very drunk for quite a while. Pop back on Sunday if you fancy a go at the Sunday Afternoon Drinking Game, but otherwise, we’ll see you on Tuesday. Boomtown.
Despite being a bit of a mammoth one for 2009, Peter Jackson’s alien/apartheid flick District 9 has arrived without any hint of the face-melting fanfare you might expect from the Lord of the Rings leg-end.
Set in a parallel world where aliens have settled in a massive Johannesburg shanty town (known as District 9, yeah?), the film follows events after an attempt to enforce a mass eviction of the extra-terrestrials goes titties up.
Once you’ve got over the ever-chucklesome Sith Africaaan accents, you’ll probably find yourself pretty engrossed by a film that’s nice ‘n’ fast-paced and oozing with awesomely trigger-happy fight scenes.
Movie Maths: Independence Day + Schindler’s List – Jeff Goldblum’s face = District 9
FRONT Verdict: 4 outta 5, we reckons
In Cinemas: 4 September
Oh yes, boys and girls, oh yes. Just when you thought we couldn’t squeeze any more awesomeness out of our giant toothpaste tube of awesome, we’ve gone and knocked out another sweet issue of FRONT. Not just any old issue, either – this one’s got fit girls oozing out of every possible orifice, an exclusive Fucked Up fashion shoot, a warts’n'all interview with Preston offa The Ordinary Boys, America’s funniest man Will Arnett, and eff-loads of musical clever-clogs like Bring Me The Horizon, Mastodon, Rolo Tomassi and Tinchy Stryder.
We’re off to go sit down and reflect on it all, and you should go out and buy it. Bring us back some Skittles while you’re at it, yeah?
This is about a year old, but we’ve only just seen it, and fuck you, you’re not the boss of us. If any of you are heading to Reading or Leeds, keep your eyes out for a few sexy FRONT girls wandering around, and at least one FRONT staffer doing the absolute opposite of wandering about (lying unconscious in a puddle). Snuff FTW.
Literally. Look at the picture. More nice ladies at Yimmy’s Yayo.
