Big Audio Dynamite

Big Audio Dynamite are an English band formed in London in 1984 by Mick Jones, the former lead guitarist of the Clash, their only constant member. The band mixed various musical styles, incorporating elements of punk rock, dance music, hip hop and funk. After releasing a number of well-received albums and touring extensively throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Big Audio Dynamite broke up in 1997. In 2011, the band embarked on a reunion tour. After being fired from the Clash in 1983 and following a brief stint with the band General Public, Mick Jones formed a new band called Top Risk Action Company, he recruited bassist Leo "E-Zee Kill" Williams, saxophonist John "Boy" Lennard, former Clash drummer Nicky "Topper" Headon. Headon was sacked for his heroin addiction and Lennard either left or was fired and the band folded. Although the band released no material, T. R. A. C. Can be seen as a forerunner to Big Audio Dynamite in much the same way London SS can be seen as an early incarnation of the Clash. Jones formed Big Audio Dynamite with film director Don Letts, bassist Leo Williams, drummer Greg Roberts, keyboardist Dan Donovan.

In 1985 the band's debut, This Is Big Audio Dynamite, was released. The album's cover shows Donovan who took and designed the photo. In 2016 This is Big Audio Dynamite was reissued on vinyl, with the album being mastered using analog tapes and pressed on 180-gram vinyl. 1986's No. 10, Upping St. reunited Jones for one last album with former Clash lyricist and lead vocalist Joe Strummer, credited with co-producing the album and co-writing of 5 of its 9 tracks. The cover painting, based on a still taken from the Brian De Palma film Scarface, was painted by Tim Jones. BAD supported U2 on their 1987 world tour released 1988's Tighten Up Vol. 88 and 1989's Megatop Phoenix. Tighten Up, Vol. 88 contained "Just Play Music!", the second No. 1 single on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart. The band recorded an unreleased track called "Keep off the Grass", a rock-style instrumental of the theme to the classic western film, The Magnificent Seven. A promo video can be seen on YouTube. In 1990, the original line-up wrote and recorded the song "Free" for the soundtrack to the adventure comedy film Flashback.

This would be the final song written with the original line-up, as the band would break-up shortly after. "The Bottom Line" from the band's first album was used as the title track for Flashback. However, this track was not included on the soundtrack, it can be found on the 12" or by download. In 1990, Mick Jones debuted Big Audio Dynamite II and release the UK only album Kool-Aid. Dan Donovan remained in BAD II for one song, a re-working of the final BAD track "Free" renamed "Kickin' In". For 1991's The Globe, only Jones remained from the original incarnation of Big Audio Dynamite, the band was now called "Big Audio Dynamite II"; this new line-up featured two guitarists. The Globe featured the band's most commercially successful single, "Rush," which hit No. 1 on both the US Modern Rock Tracks chart and the Australian National ARIA Chart. "Innocent Child" and "The Globe" were released as singles. BAD supported U2 on their Zoo TV Tour, headlined the MTV 120 Minutes tour which featured Public Image Ltd and Blind Melon, released the live EP "On the Road Live'92".

In 1991, while Mick Jones formed Big Audio Dynamite II, the rest of the original lineup formed a band called Screaming Target. They released one album "Hometown Hi Fi" and two singles "Who Killed King Tubby?" and "Knowledge N Numbers" before disbanding. The title and album cover were purposely meant as a tribute to Big Youth's reggae album Screaming Target. In 1993, Greg Roberts formed the electronic band Dreadzone with Tim Bran, with the name suggested to them by Don Letts. Leo Williams and Dan Donovan joined the band before their second album Second Light and the single "Little Britain" in 1995. Dreadzone is still active, with Williams remaining members; the band recruited keyboardist Andre Shapps and DJ Michael " Lord Zonka" Custance as DJ and vocalist. Both appeared on the band's 1994 album Higher Power, released under the shortened name "Big Audio". After signing a recording contract with Gary Kurfirst's Radioactive Records in 1995, the band reverted to the original "Big Audio Dynamite" moniker and released their least successful album to date, F-Punk.

Radioactive Records refused Entering a New Ride. The line-up contained MC vocals by Joe Attard of Punks Jump Up, Ranking Roger of the Beat and General Public and drummer Bob Wond of Under Two Flags. In 1998, the band launched a new website intended as a means to distribute songs from the Entering a New Ride album. In 2001, after having only released 6 songs from the album, the website went down and Big Audio Dynamite disbanded, their final album was never properly released in its entirety, but it has been leaked online for fans who wished to hear it. Since 2005, Jones has been working on a project with Tony James called Carbon/Silicon. In early 2007, a BAD II live 8 song DVD was released, titled Big Audio Dynamite Live: E=MC². Since BAD's official end, several DJs have continued to make mixtapes under the moniker "BAD Soundsystem". However, Mick Jones was never involved in any way with this iteration; the BAD S

Ethel Granger

Ethel Granger was one of the most famous main figures in the development of contemporary piercing and body modification in Europe. As world record holder with the narrowest documented waist size she entered the Guinness Book of Records in 1939 with a waist circumference of only 13 inches. "Ethel was a simple, uncultured girl who wore the shapeless dresses of the 1920s". As a young woman she met the astronomer William Arnold Granger, whom she married in 1928; the marriage produced a daughter, Wilhelmina Granger 1930-2001, her husband demanded that Ethel Granger wear corsets to give her a narrow waist. She wore these day and night - also a specially made steel ring - and laced her waist to a circumference of 13 inches; the german women's magazine Sonntagsspiegel der Frau reported on Ethel Granger on June 16, 1967. "Her measurements are 36/13/38, she wears twelve piercings in each ear, eleven holes run along the edge, one is placed in the middle. She has cheek piercings, both nipples, in each side of her nose there were two piercings in the septum.

Her husband William had stretched one of her septa, both nipples had shell and lobe piercings. At first she did not feel comfortable wearing her jewellery and displaying her figure in public, but after the war, with the change in fashion and William began to break down barriers; the septa rings she had worn in the privacy of her home for her husband's pleasure were worn in public and she no longer hid the numerous piercings in her ears with her hair." In September 2011 the Italian edition of the fashion magazine Vogue dedicated an issue to Ethel Granger. "It would be inaccurate to see the story of Ethel and William Granger as the sadistic desires of a demanding, sexually perverse husband who wanted to make his wife a cripple: they were a couple expressing themselves and embracing a subculture that had magazines like London Life as a point of reference during this period, in the late 20s, 30s and 40s."
