I know, I know- it's been a while since I've posted but blogger was giving me the business so I'm only partially to blame. Got it?
Mike Skinner of the Streets is slowing things down for the second single from The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living and releasing "Never Went To Church." I'm guessing it'll be another hit in the UK- now get your arse over this side of the pond, Mikee!
Manic Street Preachers have a song on the new June Brides tribute album Still Unravished. You can listen to it on Manics' Myspace- it's a pretty decent tune.
Evan Dando is "reuniting the Lemonheads" and recording a new album that's due to be released next spring. Those quotes mean "Evan's the only original member of the Lemonheads and there's two guys from the Descendents playing with him." I'm thinking it's still a good thing though- hopefully Evan will kick it a bit harder than on his solo record Baby I'm Bored, which was good overall but still not up to par with the Lemonheads stuff.
I still can't get enough of the new Primal Scream single "Country Girl." Sounds like classic scream and check out that mandolin in there! Definitely a catchy hook and hopefully it's a good indication of the rest of Riot City Blues. You can download the tune at the Daily Growl.
Primal Scream- Country Girl
Take That are reuniting for a tour and according to the group, Robbie will be joining them on a few dates of the tour. They're even apparently using a Robbie hologram on stage- what's up with that? Robbie apparently says they're Tripping. Don't do it Robbie- keep what little self-respect you have!
Yes, I like Robbie Williams- now hush.
Now here's some Spacemen 3 goodness I've been digging on of late...
