Hey guys, I just got back from a vacation to the North Shores for the Memorial weekend holiday. I have been up there several times, mostly for hiking purposes. This time around, we spent a chunk of the day in Duluth, which has this small touristy section (exit 256B), which may turn around that my opinion that Duluth has nothing to offer (other than the band Low and Bob Dylan).
Anyway, although fun and exciting, I'm an old man and will be recovering from my trip - so I actually have no reviews prepared. So, you know what that means? News and gossips!
KATE MOSS TO WRITE NOVEL
Sleeper) as ghost writer. All this was first reported by the "highly reputable" the Sun.
As soon as the story was published in late Monday (May 25, 2009 at 6:17 PM), the story was picked up by a ton of "newspapers", including the NME, which Christopher said was "the musical equivalent of the sun".
Talking to Jon Stewart (Sleeper's guitarist), he basically could not confirm (or deny!) this, so in my opinion this gossip sounds legit.
Q Magazine, ran a story on Sleeper - lots of new details, including the elusive Diid Osman. I knew a lot of post-Sleeper split stories, but I'm not sure if it was public knowledge.
In addition to Stewart's jokingly regretful cover of Blondie's "Atomic" and working at the Brighton Institute of Music, his latest project is as the musical supervisor for the movie Telstar the Movie.
THE PIRATE BAY THEME SONG
the Pirate Bay was recently found guilty for, er, piracy and plunder. Although they have appealed the case, I don't think it will end in their favor.
Anyway, I got news from respected Swedish record label, Hybrism that Montt Mardié (monttmardie.com/myspace) have written an anthem for the Pirate Bay. You can torrent the song from thepiratebay.org/special (if you don't have bittorrent, you can find it online!)
Ironically, the theme song doesn't sound like it was stolen from anywhere else.
