Ten Second News
Jay Farrar will be releasing a live record, Stone, Steel and Bright Lights which culls material taken from Farrar’s tour in Fall 2003 and will also feature a couple new songs. It’s out on June 8, the same day former bandmate Jeff Tweedy releases Wilco’s A Ghost Is Born – hmmm. You could buy them both, put them on shuffle, and pretend it’s a new Uncle Tupelo record! Farrar also has a live show from Seattle available to download (you gotta buy, no freebies) on his website.
New Order will be putting out a new BBC sessions disc on April 12 in the UK. It will feature five songs from a 1998 session, four from a 2001 session and a live video of “Rock The Shack” from 2002. There’s still supposed to be a new studio album from the now Gillian Gilbert-less band sometime this Summer, but no specifics yet.
Oh, this is good – Nerve gets sex advice from Liz Phair. It’s like they say – write about what you know.
I walked by Massey Hall last night while people were waiting for the start of a Deep Purple (yes, Deep Purple) show and I swear I got high from the amount of weed being smoked on the sidewalk. OUTSIDE. The whole street was like a big hotbox.
