The Jesus and Mary Chain Tour; The Buddha and Siddhartha Handcuffs Still Broken Up (For Now!)

Let's face it; everyone needs to have a little Jesus and Mary Chain in their lives. It's a shame that so many people jumped on the bandwagon so late (there was some great material in the mid-'90s that definitely got overlooked). Isn't it amazing what a celebrity endorsement can do for a band? (Scarlett Johansson for those keeping score.)

For anyone who had the privilege of catching their Coachella performance this year, you'll know that the boys in JAMC are well-rehearsed and ready to show the youngsters in your city how to rock. Of course, not before they give their newest song "All Things Must Pass" to the upcoming Heroes soundtrack. Perhaps some might consider this to be a strange choice for a new track, but television has been a plush playground for indie acts ever since The O.C. made Death Cab For Cutie and Pinback household names.

Wait a second, what the fuck is a household name, anyway?

I digress; Jesus And Mary Chain are touring, and here are the tourdates. Evan Dando will be handling the opening slots (Yeah, the guy from Lemonheads. Yeah, they just reunited for Coachella, too. What's your point?), along with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club on the lone L.A. date. UK act Soulsavers were due to open previously, but canceled all supporting dates.

Close those fake naked Scarlett Johansson JPG files and come to these shows:

Radiohead to Self-Release New LP! Remember When We Wrote That as a Fake Headline Two Years Ago??

Word directly from the horse's mouth is that Radiohead will be releasing a new album in the near future. If you haven't already seen the release date, you must be thinking December or early January. You're probably thinking about which store you're going to pick it up from, or which torrent site will have the first advance copy. Neither matters. You won't find the new album in stores, and I highly doubt you'll see an advanced copy. Why? The album comes out October 10.

That's 10 days from now. Normally that kind of secret would be impossible to keep because of the astronomical amount of fake time between recording and release, but there's no label around to slow the process down artificially. Radiohead mark the first for a band of this magnitude to forgo the label and distribution process entirely to record, produce, and deliver the music on their terms. Well, that's not true. Radiohead are delivering the album on your terms. You decide how much to pay. I'm not shitting you, the digital copy of the album can be downloaded for any price; they said so themselves. What kind of fan service is that?

"I despise digital downloads, and prefer to enjoy my music through physical means" - Old Person

For those who aren't hip on this whole "MP3" business, Radiohead are making a delicious package of goods available for purchase. The "discbox" contains the new album on CD and on double 12" heavyweight vinyl, an enhanced CD with more songs and digital photography/artwork, and the lyrics booklet all enclosed in a hardback book. Unfortunately, this set doesn't feature a variable price and goes for a fairly steep $81. Keep in mind the band is not making use of a well-established distribution chain to manufacture everything in the set, because they're no longer benefiting from a major label's discount. That's a good thing, and the extra coinage is worth it.

I wonder what Lars Ulrich thinks of all this.

Former Ramones Drummer Wnats Wal-Mart, Apple, RealNetworks, and Johnny Ramone’s Corpose to Pay for His Cellphone Bills

The Ramones were an aewsome band.; Fast, punky, awesome. Some might sya, they're the greatest bavnd of all time!!!! Actually, Billboard said that. Anyway, Richard "richie ramone' Reinhardt was a durmmer for the Ramones during the shit period of 1983 through 1987. Dude wants to sue Wal-Mart, Apple, ReatlNetworks, the band's managment, and the motherfucking estate of guitarist Johnny Ramone. Why? Well, supposedly becaues he dint't sign of the rights of six songs he wrote, but probaly becuae he wants to ge paid. Who can blame lhim? Seriusly. The dude needs money.

My gf told me she's pissed cuz ehe's owes her wirelss company 80 bucks!!! wtf. and she aked if i was drunk.
