Best of all, the band's food-obsessed drummer, Eric Rogers, invented a killer sandwich named after their latest single, Gold Silver Diamond. Crunch into the fish sandwich of your dreams, right here.

The once-glorious resort town of Port Antonio, located on Jamaica's northeast coast, has languished for decades amid tourist migration to mega-resorts on the opposite side of the country. But, in recent years, a handful of entrepreneurs have been trying to bring it back.

He chats with Chris Shott about efforts to rejuvenate this largely forgotten corner of the island.

Nov 3, 2014 9:00 am

Touring musicians have a great gig. Rock and roll! It’s doubly great when they’re interested in exploring the international culinary world. We do realize some bands subsist solely on Taco Bell and Coke Zero. Shame on them! There’s Hatch chile to sample in New Mexico. Pappy Van Winkle in Kentucky. Doppelbock outside Hamburg. In Good Food, Rocks, we track down a band member serious about their grub — and who has held a job in the food industry too. Up next, Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips.

Party music's new trend is fluffy, frosted, awesome
Aug 11, 2014 3:00 pm

VICE's recent profile of EDM legend Steve Aoki revealed a penchant for baked goods, cakes in particular. Not eating them — launching them into a crowd of frenzied dancing fans in the name of a good party. Not that he needs a reason...but why does he do it and who else from the dance world is on the cake train?

Half a century after disco erupted from its jazz roots in a thunderous cloud of glitter, Escort frontman Eugene Cho brings a band of 16 (sometimes more, sometimes less) around the world to remind you without a shadow of doubt exactly why you're still dancing so hard. There's more. He cooks from Modernist Cuisine. You want him to make you sous-vide salmon, preferably with disco blasting in the background so loud you can't hear the electric spice grinder.

Tortas on the California-Mexico border. In Good Food, Rocks, we track down a band member serious about their grub — and who has held a job in the food industry too.
