Keith Richards Trades Stories and Licks with Noisey in New Episode of “Guitar Moves”

NEW YORK, NY (October 22, 2015) – Today, Noisey is excited the unveil the season premiere of Guitar Moves, featuring none other than rock ‘n’ roll royalty, Keith Richards. Hosted by Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Zwan), the two dive deep into the art of playing guitar, trading riffs and the stories that come with them.

The two cover the 71-year-old’s expansive career, going all the way back to the first song Keith learned from his grandfather (“Malagueña,” as it turns out). Keith describes the endless hours he spent learning to play as a teen, “I would spend all practicing. I should’ve been trying to get laid, but I was playing guitar,” as Keith eloquently puts it.

Keith also looks back on his own personal guitar heroes, figures like like Jimmy Reed and Ry Cooder who Richards learned from and emulated. He even recounts teaching Ike Turner how to play in his famous five-string, Open G style — showing Matt Sweeny how it’s done in the process.

Guitar Moves, hosted by Matt Sweeney, is Noisey’s show where the viewer gets an opportunity to sit in on a private, interesting, and hilarious conversation about guitars, music, life, and craft. Previous episodes have featured figures like James Williamson of the Stooges and St. Vincent. Later this season, Noisey will sit down with everyone from Lemmy from Mötorhead to the Geto Boys’ Scarface.

Noisey Israel Palestine: Noisey Interviews Ben Blackwell of Black Hebrew Israelites in Episode 3 of New Docu-series

NEW YORK, NY (July 30, 2015) – Today, Noisey is excited to present the third episode of Noisey Israel Palestine: Hip Hop in the Holy Land, a six-part docu-series from VICE’s music channel that heads to Israel and Palestine to spend time with the unique voices emerging from a region mired in political unrest.

So far in the series we’ve heard from a Palestinian activist and an Orthodox Jewish rapper, but there’s more to this thin strip of land than Jews and Arabs. In Episode Three, Mike travels to the desert town of Dimona where a group of African-American Israelis — that sometimes refer to themselves as Black Hebrews — could have their first breakout rap star in Ben Blackwell. Of all the artists he’s met so far, none have an anthem that goes in as much as Blackwell’s “Israel We Go Hard.”

Watch the video on YouTube here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ckb4pSE3IT

Hosted by Mike Skinner (The Streets), and co-directed by Skinner and Alex Hoffman (Head of Music, VICE), the series reveals the bristling diversity of the region’s rap scene; meeting with everyone from MC Saz, a Palestinian rapper trying to become a sex symbol, to Subliminal, the most commercially successful — and perhaps most controversial — Israeli rapper of all time. Watch previous episodes of the series here.

Noisey Israel Palestine: Hip Hop in the Holy Land is the latest installment of Noisey’s ongoing exploration of the world’s most compelling music scenes. Earlier this year, Noisey presented Noisey Atlanta, a ten-part, in-depth examination of the music, trap houses, neighborhoods, and personalities that built one of America’s most influential music scenes. The series features candid interviews with highly influential artists, including 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Trouble, Migos, Rich Homie Quan, and iLoveMakonnen.

Previous installments have spotlighted the culture and artists behind dancehall in Noisey Jamaica, the fiery personalities of the Chicago drill rap scene in Noisey Chiraq, and the metal pioneers of the Bayou in Noisey NOLA.

Stay tuned for more to come from the series, which will roll out weekly exclusively on Noisey.
