Them Crooked Vultures Streaming Album

The debut drops one week from today, but the tracks have been individually placed on You Tube.

Bonus Coverage. Track 2 “Mind Eraser, No Chaser”:

Sure Beats Cats And Phantom

Green Day’s “American Idiot” is coming to Broadway.

Bonus Coverage. I guess I’m just a lousy Philistine because this just looks dumb to me:

In Related News, Coming Soon, The Kinks Choral Collection

And you can’t improve “Waterloo Sunset” with a choir either. It’s perfect the way it is. The good news is, some of the Kinks have been kicking around the studio with Ray Davies, but not brother Dave as yet.

Also Out Today

Wale and Dashboard Confessional highlight a slow release day. I predict the Wale record will do quite well.

Lil Wayne’s Bad Fall Keeps Getting Worse

Let’s see… he’s going to prison, can’t finish his record, and, over his objections Tha Carter documentary is coming.

Yes! Arcade Fire Recording

I was just listening to “Neon Bible” the other day. It made even scooping up dog shit in my back yard enjoyable. That’s the measure of a great record don’t you think. Can’t wait for new stuff.

Bonus Coverage. To inspire you in your dirty jobs:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Hot Chip Ready Album

It’ll be out in February.

Julian Launches LA Residency

He’ll be hunkered down in LA for a month of performances.

Eminem In 3-D

His misanthropy will literally jump out of the screen.

Hey Marlon, Do You Think Michael’s Been Dead Long Enough?

Jackson Brothers to launch reality show. Why? Who would watch this seriously. Money quote from Tito:

“If anything, they’re gonna see how many girlfriends I have,”

What? Shut up Tito.

And Now Some Unrelated Gossip

Sometimes NME’s gossip page is good fun. Today we have Sting developing a soccer ball (perhaps he can inflate it with hot air) and Amy Winehouse looking to match her boob job with ass implants.

Killing Joke Announce Two Dates

They’re in the UK so I guess I’m missing out.

Bonus Coverage. You don’t know Killing Joke? You should. “Wardance” is an excellent place to start:

Onion Reports, Tyler Didn’t Quit He Was Laid Off

The story puts things in perspective. Why should one of the world’s biggest rock bands be immune from the lousy economy.

Money Quote:

Analysts speculate that the sector-wide layoff was a result of multiple factors, including redundancies in the singing-songwriting division, rising rehab fees that have cost the group millions, and a 34 percent decline in jump-kicks since 2003. In addition, some of Aerosmith’s younger, more ambitious employees, such as Joe Perry, 57, are willing to sing and play an instrument at the same time, often for half the salary.
