The Dirtbombs, the longest-running project of Detroit garage rock legend Mick Collins (The Gories) is arguably his best. Their line-up of two drummers, two bassists (one of them playing through a fuzzbox effect) and Collins on guitar plays classic groove-oriented, hip-shaking music. Their 2002 release Ultraglide in Black belongs on our desert island discs collection. They'll be playing at Double Door this evening days from the release of their new album We Have You Surrounded.

A study of Korean men's attitudes toward women, Hong Sang Soo's Woman is the Future of Man is the story of an ambitious Korean film maker returned from the States with ambitions in the film industry.
