This year, the New York-based thrash metal band Anthrax turns 40.
Over the last two months on their YouTube channel they’ve been releasing a retrospective on their career with interviews with band members, producers, friends and metalheads across the globe. As I understand it they have 40 of these in the pipeline. So far we’ve reached episode 22 which has taken us to 2003 and probably my favourite Anthrax albums, We’ve Come For You All. I saw them live twice on that tour.
This evening (morning UK-time), they celebrated the event with a live stream event with a nearly 2 hours 15 minutes concert spanning most of their entire 40-year, 12-studio album career. (Typically, their John Bush era material was disappointingly missing.)
LEGO Ideas allows fans to submit their own creations which can be voted up and, if selected by LEGO, released as official LEGO sets.
A recent submission is this wonderful Mr Benn set featuring three terraced houses on Festive Road, the magical shop that transports Mr Benn on his adventures plus—as if by magic—the mysterious shopkeeper.
