Kingblind’s Album giveaway (Midnight Movies)



We are giving away 3 cd’s of Midnight Movies Self Titled Debut CD Just send an email to kingblind (at) gmail dot com with Midnight Movies as the subject and your name and address in the body of the message and we will randomly pick 3 winners!! Midnight Movies’ rich, haunting sound provides a backdrop that’s simultaneously endless and claustrophobic in the way that, say, a David Lynch film is inescapably David Lynch. Cinematic in its own right, the music is driving, spacey art-rock with psychedelic electronics coupled with eerie melodies sung by drummer and vocalist Gena Olivier, whose voice inhabits space as pervasively as dye inhabits water. The other two members of the band are guitarist Larry Schemel and keyboardist/guitarist Jason Hammons.

The Prodigy’s much-delayed “Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned” (XL Recordings) gave the group a triumphant return to the U.K. album chart yesterday (Aug. 29), debuting at No. 1 and thus repeating the feat of the act’s last two albums, 1997’s “The Fat of the Land” and 1994’s “Music for the Jilted Generation.” (Remember that Kingblind will have the exclusive listening party for the U.S. Release of the new Prodigy on Sept 18th.

Epic Collects Screaming Trees’ ‘Songs’



The later years of Seattle rock act Screaming Trees will be celebrated with the upcoming compilation “Ocean of Confusion: Songs of Screaming Trees 1989-1996.” Due Nov. 9 via Epic/Legacy, the 20-track set is drawn from the Trees’ three Epic releases: 1991’s “Uncle Anesthesia,” 1993’s “Sweet Oblivion” and 1996’s “Dust.” The Trees played their last show in June 2000 at the opening of the Experience Music Project in Seattle. Lanegan has been the most prolific ex-member, having released six solo albums for Beggars Banquet and Sub Pop and recording/touring with Queens Of The Stone Age.

The Cramps Are Back!



Lux Interior and Poison Ivy are back to tour just in time for Halloween. The campy act are ready to perform previously un-released, rare tracks from their early ‘80s album, How to Make a Monster, on an upcoming tour. The Cramps’ rockabilly style and extreme antics onstage should make for some unforgettable shows you won’t want to miss. The band’s music is still incredibly influenced by everything you’d find in a bad 1970’s horror movie. Get ready to be scared…

Trail Of Dead CD On Hold Until Next Year



The second-full length album from Texas-based rock act …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead has been pushed from its planned Oct. 5 release date to January, according to a post from group member Conrad Keely on TrailOfDead.org. Keely attributes the change to Interscope’s crowded schedule of high-profile fall releases from U2, No Doubt and Eminem. “They don’t want to have to dust ours under the rug,” he says. “This happens in the industry sometimes. There are other reasons, such as we don’t wash our hair and we need to take promo pictures.” The upcoming album is thought to be named “Worlds Apart.” Songs earmarked for the set include the title cut, “Caterwaul” and the epic “Will You Smile Again?,” which has been featured in Trail Of Dead’s 2004 live shows. The album will be the follow-up to 2002’s “Source Tags & Codes.” (BB)

RADIO SONGS



MOGWAI are releasing a selection of radio sessions this autumn. ‘Government Commissions (BBC Sessions 1996-2003)’ collects material from the post-rock Scots’ sessions for Radio 1’s John Peel and Evening Session shows. It precedes a new album next year and is released on October 25. Fresh from the Curiosa tour of the US, mainman Stuart Braithwaite said: “The reason we’re putting out this collection is simple, the recordings here are worth hearing. Some are definitely better than the official recordings. Some are sketchy but to be honest so are we. Sketchy but nice. Nicely sketchy.” (NME)

The tracklisting is:

* ’Hunted by A Freak’ (recorded at Maida Vale 21st May 2003)

* ’R U Still in 2 It’ (recorded at the Hippodrome 22nd December 1996)

* ’New Paths to Helicon Part II’ (recorded at Maida Vale 20th January 1998)

* ’Kappa’ (recorded at Maida Vale 23rd August 1998)

* ’Cody’ (recorded Maida Vale 23rd August 1998)

* ’Like Herod’ (recorded Maida Vale 28th October 1997)

* ’Secret Pint’ (recorded at Maida Vale 10th April 2001)

* ’Superheroes of BMX’ (recorded at the Hippodrome 22nd December 1996)

* ’New Paths to Helicon Part I’ (recorded at Maida Vale 20th January 1998)

* ’Stop Coming to My House’ (recorded at Maida Vale 21st May 2003)
