The Strokes on Ellen

The Strokes played Gratisfaction today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. There has been a lot of debate about whether they should be playing such a show but really look at Fab he was on fire and clearly seemed to be enjoying himself. Julian also had solid vocal performance.

The BBC Big Weekend Gig

The Strokes played a short 40 minute set at the Big Weekend show last night, not that you would know seeing as all the media coverage focussed on Lady Gaga!

Sweetlife Festival

The Strokes played Sweetlife Festival last night and thankfully for those who couldn’t make it the concert was streamed online.  Unlike the Coachella stream I thought the quality was a lot better, nice camera angles and in colour!

Below are videos in case you missed the stream or want to relive it.

Alone Together Fan Club Scans

Way back in 2002 the Strokes had an official fan club called Alone Together. It ran from 2002 to 2005. In Transit the much beloved DVD was part of the club as was various other goodies including the newsletters.

I’ve previously scanned some pages but now all 8 issues are up in the gallery.

Blag Magazine

Blag Magazine

A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away Blag Magazine did an interview with Julian Casablancas.  Due to a million different reasons the interview which was conducted in December 2009 was only just shipped out earlier this month.

My copy arrived last week and I finally got around to scanning it.  Obviously its completely out of date by now but the photographs are pretty stunning and if you haven’t read it already its worth a look at.

Q Magazine Interview

Interview with Q Magazine (issue date June 2011). Have to say not one of my favourites from this year, think Q were deliberately creating drama to put a depressing spin on things. Hey that is the way the media works though – drama sells and the Strokes do have a tendency to say headline grabbing things, even if they later regret it.

The Strokes played Conan on last week, they performed Games, great seeing Albert on keyboards and I thought Fab was amazing on drums
