From the Department of Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog-Flavored Diarrhea (ugh, sorry): As reported by Stereogum, Fred Durst and Wes Borland of noted clown brigade Limp Bizkit were recently photographed with a copy of Loose Jewels, local punk-poppers Diarrhea Planet's 2011 debut LP. See Borland holding his Jewels above. "Reports" Stereogum writer Tom Breihan, "I don’t have any idea why or how this happened." Breihan does know that the photo was taken "at a record store in Moscow." Limp Bizkit is indeed playing Moscow's Park Live festival this weekend, but a thorough scouring of the Internet appears to turn up no further information. Anybody know where this came from? Care to fill us in? Durst's lavalier mic suggest a "What's in My Bag"-esque record-store rundown.
Anyhow, the Planeteers are no strangers to being repped by superstars — be those stars Titus Andronicus' Patrick Stickles or just a rogue possum. Stereogum also unveiled DP's "Kids," an anthemic and earnest, laid-back, mid-tempo, surf-punk fist-pumper that will be featured on I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams (out Aug. 20 via Infinity Cat). Stream that below as you bask in the glow of Fred Durst's wiry, professorial beard.
Update: As pointed out by former Scene intern Wrenne Evans, the photo was taken at this Russian record store. Here's where the photo was originally posted, complete with a caption that Google Translate translates as, "We were stopped by Limp Bizkit, they loved the record N*ggers and Diarrhea Planet!" If you're wondering about that random racial slur in there, that's the name of the band whose record Durst is holding.
