The Verve steady as she implodes

August 13th, 2009

As with any reunion, The Verve’s motives had to be viewed with a few extra grains of salt. This is a band that has notoriously imploded multiple times.

The PR firm, Artists In Residence, had a splash page up yesterday, which announced that pre-orders will be taken for something called Minotaur by the Pixies beginning June 15th.

Nobody sings on all souls day

April 8th, 2009

I have found no band to fill the void left by Unwound. I can’t believe they’ve been broken up for seven years. This clip is of “All Souls Day” off their second album (technically, their third if you count that self-titled Honey Bear release) New Plastic Ideas; no idea when this footage was recorded, but […]
