U2 Free Show Marks Berlin Wall Fall

20 years already eh. There’s a whole generation of self centered, poorly educated children that have no clue what this is all about. Put down your cell phone and get yourself up to speed.

Rock Band Who Coming?

I predict many broken video game “guitars” and bloody hands as dorks like me attempt to imitate our hero Pete Townshend.

Bonus Coverage. Damn I love The Who:

Nirvana Reading DVD/CD/LP Draws Near

November 3rd I become lighter in the wallet.

Bonus Coverage. “Blew.” Reading. 1992:

Bunnymen To Drop Live Record

It’ll feature “Ocean Rain” in it’s entirety. An album Ian McCulloch modestly calls the greatest ever made.

Bonus Coverage. It is pretty great:

New Fiddy Leaks

It’s violent and chock full of fodder for his enemies; Young Buck, The Game, and even itsy bitsy Lil Wayne draw fire. The thing about albums like this… I can just read an article about them and I’m good. When It comes right down to it, I’ll take my hip hop beef free. Public Enemy for instance…. they talked about their world… the world…. not whether or not they had a problem with Ice T or something.

Bonus Coverage. This is the greatest hip hop track of all time:

Stone Temple Pilots Ready Comeback Album

I gotta be honest, I didn’t think the reunion would make it this far. I guess Scott Weiland really is attempting to behave himself.

Bonus Coverage. I went to an STP show once, but only to see the opener…. Yes sir it was a bizarre time in the early 90’s when somewhat lame bands like STP would invite the likes of The Butthole Surfers out with them.

RIP Chuck Biscuits

Former Black Flag, Social Distortion, Circle Jerks, DOA and Danzig drummer Chuck Biscuits has died of throat cancer. He was 44.

Bonus Coverage. Where the hell did someone find this? How sad at the turn out. Circle Jerks 1983:

Stop The Presses

I’ve been pretty hard on ole Billy Corgan in this forum… He does make some good points with his Swine Flu screed though. I’ve been wondering about the same things. I should probably have my head examined.

Peter Gabriel Readies Covers Project

Everyone from Bon Iver to Lou Reed.

In The Litany Of Bad Ideas

Ex-members of Evanescence joining with an American Idol runner up? Blech….

Timing Is Everything

With the strong initial showing of “This Is It,” this doctor had decided it’s now time to send in the bill.

Big Names Sign Up To Remix Norah Jones

Beck and Beasties will take their turns.

Bonus Coverage. I really dig her new single “Chasing Pirates:”

Canadian Folk Singer Killed

This is horrible… 19 year old folk singer Taylor Mitchell was attacked and killed by coyotes while out hiking. It is extremely rare for coyotes to attack humans. I hadn’t had occasion to hear her music until reading the story last night. She was very talented. Listen here.

Bonus Coverage. The CBC had this report:

Watson Twins Ready Next Record

They’ll always be on my radar because of the great record they made with Jenny Lewis “Rabbit Fur Coat.” The new Twins record drops February 9th.

Bonus Coverage. “Rabbit Fur Coat:”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Ex Make Model Member Joins Frightened Rabbit

Our interview with Make Model at SXSW 2008 has disappeared. I’ll have to dig it up from the archives. Anyway they broke up not long after which is sad, they had loads of potential. Anyway one of their members has joined the great Frightened Rabbit.

Bonus Coverage. They stayed at the same hotel as we did as it turns out. We saw them at Wave Rooftop. Good people:
