It doesn´t become more rock n roll than this…


Awaiting the new novel from good ol´Chuck.


Maya Gabeira (born April 10, 1987 in Rio de Janeiro) is a professional big wave surfer from Brazil.

In 2009, Gabeira won the ESPY award for Best Female Action Sports Athlete. Later that year, Gabeira surfed the biggest wave ever by a female when she successfully surfed a 45-foot wave at Dungeons, a big wave surf spot in South Africa. In 2010, she was awarded with the Billabong Girls Best Overall Performance Award for a record four straight years in a row. Gabeira’s current sponsors include Billabong and Red Bull.

Gabeira’s father is Fernando Gabeira, one of the founding members of the Green Party of Brazil. Her father is also a former member of a guerilla group responsible for the kidnapping of the US Ambassador in Brazil, Charles Elbrick, in 1969. Since early 2011 she has been dating Australian actor Jesse Spencer. (via Wikipedia)


It has been well over three years since Turin Brakes premiered its last album, but the British folk-rock duo, comprised of members Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian, is now set to return with “We Were Here”. Knights and Paridjanian created the record after relearning some of the band’s older songs, a process that reinvigorated them creatively and also served as the inspiration behind “We Were Here”, according to a press release for the record. Turin Brakes recorded the album live, using tapes to produce each track. The songs, written by Knight, explore themes like loneliness, disconnection and “realizing one’s own place in the scheme of things.”

“We Were Here” is due out on Oct. 8 via Cooking Vinyl/Red River Entertainment. “We Were Here” is now available to stream in full over at Paste Magazine. Click on the link below to listen.
