Please Help Scotland Yard Gospel Choir


Scotland Yard Gospel Choir

The Chicago band was in a horrific van accident last week. They need your help. We’ll keep you posted on the hospitalized member’s conditions as updates become available.

Lady Sov Spits At Doorman, Fined

Is there anything worse you can do to a person than spitting on them? Really I’d rather be kicked in the nuts.

And The Moon Landings Were Faked Too

The album that made Kiss’ career, “Alive” was said to have been recorded at Detroit’s Cobo Hall. There may be some crowd noise on there from Cobo, but trust me, that was a studio creation (as are more live albums than you care to know). Anyway Kiss recreated the recreated “Alive” over the weekend in Detroit and Billboard was there.

Diddy Warners Hardly Knew Ye

Scant evidence exists that he was ever there, but Diddy has announced he’s leaving Warner Brothers. Though his only record for the Bunny sold far less than a million copies, Interscope is reportedly waving their check book in the air.

Is This Part Of His Community Service?

Chris Brown’s career has taken a hit for his beating up Rihanna. Evidence? His first gig since being sentenced is a radio station concert. It must be too late in the year to get a county fair or chili cook off gig.

Bonus Coverage. Darke County, Ohio is not far from Dayton, but might as well be 10,000 miles from nowhere. This year’s headliner? Styx! Chris Brown… this is your future. Run, run!

Bon Iver Skips County Fairs, Goes Right For Cemetery

Bon Iver wins for “Strangest Gig Of The Year.” He played a cemetery at 6am over the weekend. The Hollywood Forever Cemetery is the final resting place for among others Johnny Ramone. Joey and Dee Dee are buried elsewhere I assure you.

Fiddy Finally Plays Oft Delayed Free Show

The permits came through for 50 Cent to do his Jamaica Queens concert.

Please Tell Me They Kicked His Ass

Reports suggest Wavves Nathan Williams and The Black Lips got into it over the weekend in, where else, the chewy center of hipster hell, Williamsburg Brooklyn. I’ll bet it was a slap fight.

Bonus Coverage. It’s sad, but our most popular ever feature is our interview with a drunken Nathan Williams at SXSW. He was hiding in an ice cream truck. Dick. The video is missing from our servers (we’re moving and some stuff is…. misplaced), but here’s a rundown on that.

Portishead Right Back To Work

This is more like it. After making us wait 11 years between studio albums, Portishead are already getting back to work.

Sort Of A Wu Tang 1/3 A Clan

Method Man, Ghostface, and Raekwon have all confirmed they’re making a record.

He Has A Case Of Rocking Too Bloody Much

AC/DC have postponed some shows as front man Brian Johnson recovers from an undisclosed health issue.

Guns And Roses To Tour… Asia

Rolling Stone says G-n-R may be touring at last behind the reviled “Chinese Democracy.” It appears they’ll play in Southeast Asia. One show is scheduled…. Seoul, South Korea. Goody. I swear Axl does things at this point only to jam it to his record company. He puts out “Chinese Democracy” and to promote it, he does one email interview. A year later he decides to play live, but only in Southeast Asia. Personally I could give a shit. Unless he wants to get the real Guns N Roses back together, I have no interest.

Yeah Me Too

Ok not so much. Pop star Nelly Furtado says she’s inconsolable over Oasis’ break up. Perspective… try some today.

Neener Neener Big Fat Weener

Told ya. It took just days after Lily Allen announcing her retirement from music to announce a new gig.
