Garfunkel & Oates have done it again. Here's The Loophole:
According to poor journalism, Sidney Crosby had an interesting altercation with police in Ottawa. The story was retracted almost as soon as it was released. Here's a funny follow up story that's just as made up as the original: Sid vs The Bounty Hunters. Sadly, the writers of the article chickened out at the end and said it was fiction.
There are a ton of new releases slated for the next few months.
Electric Wizard unleashes Time To Die upon the world at the end of September. Spinefarm will be putting the record out.
Sleater-Kinney's catalogue gets reissued by Sub Pop in October. There's a box set titled Stay Together with colored vinyl. The individual albums will be available on black vinyl.
Sub Pop will also be reissuing Shallow by Pissed Jeans. Their Throbbing Organ single has also been repressed and will be included with the reissue of Shallow.
The soundtrack for the film Clerks will be pressed on vinyl for the first time. 500 will be on black and white vinyl and 1,500 will be clear with black smoke. It's a double LP with an etched D-side. Shop Radio Cast is handling the release and it's due out on November 11th. That date may move around a bit because they are always optimistic about their test pressings and jacket printing.
Deerhoof will be releasing La Isla Bonita on November 4th. If the rest of the record is as good as the first single then Deerhoof could quite possibly take over the world. Go here to pre-order.
Body Count's self-titled album is being reissued on vinyl. I'm not sure who is handling the release but I don't think Cop Killer will be on the release. Too many people would whine about it.
Pittsburgh band Gotobeds have released Poor People Are Revolting recently. They somehow ended up on the NPR first listen website. Not surprisingly, the comments section was not friendly. Too many heads are up too many asses over there for people to enjoy anything. Take a listen to it over on their bandcamp page.
The deluxe vinyl picture disc version of Gaslight Anthem's Get Hurt landed in my mailbox today. It's quite the thing of beauty. The limited edition of the standard version of Get Hurt won't be out until next month or so. It seems that Island Records wasn't capable of dealing with colored/splattered vinyl in a timely manner. Hooray for conglomerates.
DC Entertainment is going to try to make Aquaman not look like a tool. Justice League: Throne Of Atlantis will be the next animated feature coming to DVD. No matter how much effort they put into making Aquaman look like a bad ass, he always gets a good laugh out of me.
Thanks for listening.
Rock over London. Rock on Chicago.
