Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want

Please be true please be true please be true please be true please be true please be true please be true please be true please be true please be true please be true please be true please be true please be true. Why do I wish Scott Stapp & co ill? I don’t know, but I do. Update: Well, it IS true, but in true ‘watch out what you wish for’ cursed monkey paw fashion, Stapp is working with Can-rock blowhards The Tea Party on a solo jag. Because someone needs to teach him to be MORE pretentious. Ma, get my gun.

The Cowboy Junkies detail very academically their Top 10 British Punk Songs. From The Global Pop Consipiracy.

The GPC will also be holding a dance night at the Drake Hotel next Wednesday, no cover.

The mark-up on my Lollapalooza ticket for day 2 lawns? 75%. For fuck’s sake. I really wouldn’t care as much if they just worked all that bullshit into the face value of the ticket. The $35 I paid is fine. The $19.95 plus $15 in ‘convenience fees’ is just insulting.

Billboard has some details on the new Tanya Donelly record. What they have wrong is the release date – Whiskey Tango Ghosts is out July 27, not August 10. Or at least it damn well better be. That’s what Amazon says, anyway.

Vue Weekly examines the current state of mp3 blogs and speculates on what the future holds. I agree with the general sentiment in that the medium is approaching a critical mass, and something gonna give. I don’t really consider my site an mp3-blog, though my one track a week is certainly a reason I get a lot of my traffic. Link from Largehearted Boy, for whom I take credit for naming the indie-rock evangelist.

    Sorry Frank, but I’d be more inclined to believe what Billboard has to say re: the Donnelly record. Amazon is notorious for screwing up release dates.

  2. Frank says:

    well, the 27th was listed by 4AD’s distributors, fan sites, amazon – everyone. It’s entirely possible or even probable that it has since been pushed back and Billboard is the only one with the new info. I dunno.

    this is the best day in the history of Music (ok one of)

    first Creed breaks up, then the new Beasties, GBV, and Poly Spree all leak in the same day, w00t.
