[Watch] Boy George w/ Mark Ronson & The Business INTL - "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" Feat. Jonathan Pierce (Live)

Last year when Mark Ronson debuted his Record Collection via the alias of Mark Ronson and the Business Intl there was quite a bit of interest in the lineup he had performing on the album. Sure, he'd worked with a tonne of great artists prior to this but the album looked like a culmination of what he'd been building up to. Nearly 5 months after the release of the album he and his Business Intl took to the stage at London's Roundhouse on February the 16th. On that night Mark performed with Boy George and Jonathan Pierce aka Johnny Drums. A host of others graced the stage that night including Wretch 32, Ghostface Killah and more. 

Up at the top you can witness a performance from the show back in February featuring Boy George performing his 1982 Culture Club hit, "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" from his album Kissing To Be Clever. Check out the grin on Mark Ronson's face whilst the magic unfolds.

Black Lips Release Details For Arabia Mountain

The upcoming Black Lips album Arabia Mountain now has a release date and tracklisting. The Vice Records release will be hitting both physical and digital shelves on June 7th and was produced by legendary producer Mark Ronson. Ronson told Rolling Stone back in December, "I was already a fan of the Black Lips coming into it and I definitely didn't want to fuck up anything." From the sounds of the band's first single, "Go Out And Get It" he did no such thing. 

Black Lips will also be hitting the road with the Vivian Girls in April after a few shows at SXSW. While out on the road, the guys will be playing new material, so be sure to check them out if they're in your area!

[Watch] Black Lips - "Go Out and Get It!"

We finally get a taste of newly Mark Ronson-produced music from Black Lips! The "Go Out and Get It!" video was shot in the Bahamas by the lovely people at Vice,. If you look hard enough, you'll see the Vivian Girls partying right along with them. 

At the very end of the video they slip in details for their upcoming album. It's titled Arabia Mountain and is due to drop in June 2011. 

I'm anxious to hear more from the album because Mark Ronson had his hands all over it.
