Is it because of the Olympics that Axl decided now would be a good time to release the album? Should have done it 08.08.08 dude…
Just make sure you make it through the wanky opening, because it gets A-MAZ-ING. I would have said that this album would have sucked, and it probably will, but at least it can get me excited. No, not like that.
Picture with Robin Finck only because of the Nine Inch Nails connection.
Just last night I was wondering what was going on with my favourite bluesy two piece around, The Fumes.
If you haven’t heard these guys, hunt down Guns of Gold this weekend and sit in the sun with your girlfriend/boyfriend wearing your tightest black jeans and some short sleeve plaid shirt/singlet, drinking beers ever so slowly. It’s what I’ll be doing, only without the girlfriend/boyfriend.
Anyway, whilst flicking through a Drum Media at work, I saw that they’re about to head into the studio to record their sophomore LP with Jim Fucking Diamond, and are playing one last show tomorrow (Saturday 11th) at Manly Fisho’s. If you’re in the area, go see them. You’ll love it.
Last time I saw them was supporting Queens of the StoneAge at Luna Park in March and they blew me away (again). Can’t wait for their new album.
Also, keep late november free in your diaries…
Thanks to the wonder that is my work’s internet filters blocking my access to Myspace, and various proxy sites shitting themselves trying to load the music player on Myspace, I’m yet to hear the new remixes of No Pussy Blues by Grinderman, and it’s pretty much killing me. Hopefully they will put these out officially sometime soon and I can start getting my pillhead on to them. Assuming that’s what they sound like. More details can be found here.
Whilst I’m leeching news directly from Pitchfork, The Gutter Twins have also announced that they’re releasing an iTunes only exclusive EP with proceeds going to go to the Natasha Shneider Memorial Fund. Help a good cause and get some good tunes? Done deal.
The good kids at Antiquiet got themselves into a bit of trouble over the GnR leak they did a while ago. Isn’t it funny that the United States Government calls Russia for going in with too much force on Georgia, however it’s totally reasonable for 5 FBI agents to wake up a BLOGGER (hardly the most advanced and dangerous species on the planet) at 5am in the morning and then try and set a $50 grand bail? The worst part is there’s no fucking Chinese Democracy to show for it! 14 years Axl! DIE!!!!11
Nine Inch Nails’ magnum opus, The Downward Spiral, is being re-released on vinyl as a money making scheme now that he’s left Interscope part of the 60th anniversary of vinyl. Here’s what the man himself had to say…
You may have heard there’s a new re-release of The Downward Spiral on vinyl. I heard that, too. I have no idea what it is or what’s on it because the band has had no involvement in it.
So basically, Interscope will be getting more money and the artist will be fucked over? Not much news to me.
I’m off to listen to Does It Offend You, Yeah? some more. A review of their old album will be up (or at least promised about some more) soon.
