Johnny Rotten Unveils Ridiculously Expensive Book

Ah, that’s more like the filthy lucre-worshipping Johnny Rotten we know: Dude’s selling a limited-edition scrapbook of his old photos for about $600 a copy.

The rocker unveiled plans to sell 750 hand-autographed copies of Mr. Rotten’s Scrapbook, which is made up of old, private photographs and a reproduction of a hand scrawled text to go with it. A limited-edition 12-inch picture disc of live recordings from the recent Public Image Ltd. reunion, too. All for a price that’s only $101 more than a brand-new iPad.

So, rich kids, fetishize Rotten’s past by spending a lot of money on memorabilia. Because, you know, Rotten’s been really tolerant of that idea in the past. Check out the video for a glimpse of his condemnation of that practice from his almost immediately canceled Rotten Television program.

Crystal Castles recruit The Cure’s Robert Smith for new single

The Cure’s Robert Smith has lent his vocals to the new single by Crystal Castles.

The Toronto digi-dance duo are releasing a new version of ‘Not In Love’ on December 6, with Smith on singing duties.

The original version of the song features on the band’s self-titled second album, released in May.


“You have to accept that the war on piracy is a failure,” Parker said. He estimated that 4 to 10 trillion songs have been illegally downloaded versus 4 billion legally. The keys to getting people to use a music service are “convenience,” and “accessibility,” he explained.

ATP goes to Japan

On Sunday 27th February 2011, All Tomorrow’s Parties will collaborate with Japan’s Creativeman to present their first Japanese event. Named after the b-side to The Velvet Underground’s original All Tomorrow’s Parties 7” single, the one day I’ll Be Your Mirror event will take place at Studio Coast, Tokyo, Japan.

Acting as sister events to the ATP Festivals which usually take place in holiday resorts, I’ll Be Your Mirror will be a new series of curated events taking place in cities worldwide. For this first event ATP will curate with a stunning line-up of artists to be announced soon when tickets go on sale. The intimate event will feature music, DJs, and art from James Jarvis of Amos Toys.

ATP promoter Barry Hogan: “We feel really excited that we are finally coming to Tokyo to present some of our favourite Japanese and International artists. It’s been something we’ve wanted to do for many years and this first edition of I’ll Be Your Mirror will be a sample of future projects we plan to bring to Japan”…


In what can only be described as a bizarre coincidence, following an exhaustive re-sequence marathon, Beastie Boys have verified that their new Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 will be comprised of the same 16 tracks originally slated for inclusion on Hot Sauce Committee Part 1.

The record (part 2 that is) will be released as planned in spring 2011 on Capitol.

The tracks originally recorded for Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 (which now are actually back on Part 1) have now apparently been bumped to make room for the former Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 material. Wait, what?

“I know it’s weird and confusing, but at least we can say unequivocally that Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 is coming out on time, which is more than I can say about Part 1, and really is all that matters in the end.” says Adam “MCA” Yauch. “We just kept working and working on various sequences for part 2, and after a year and half of spending days on end in the sequencing room trying out every possible combination, it finally became clear that this was the only way to make it work. Strange but true, the final sequence for Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 works best with all its songs replaced by the 16 tracks we originally had lined up in pretty much the same order we had them in for Hot Sauce Committee Part 1. So we’ve come full circle.”

Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 marks Yauch, Mike “Mike D” Diamond, and Adam “Ad Rock” Horovitz’s first full length effort since 2007’s Grammy winning all-instrumental The Mix-Up. The new track listing of the album is now as follows:

1. Tadlock’s Glasses
2. B-Boys In The Cut
3. Make Some Noise
4. Nonstop Disco Powerpack
5. OK
6. Too Many Rappers (featuring NAS)
7. Say It
8. The Bill Harper Collection
9. Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win (featuring Santigold)
10. Long Burn The Fire
11. Funky Donkey
12. Lee Majors Come Again
13. Multilateral Nuclear Disarmament
14. Pop Your Balloon
15. Crazy Ass Shit
16. Here’s A Little Something For Ya

Recently nominated for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2011, Beastie Boys are the single longest lived hip-hop act to continue to enjoy commercial and critical success. Formed in 1981, Beastie Boys first changed the course of popular music when their 1986 debut album Licensed To Ill became the first hip hop record to reach #1. Since then, Diamond, Horovitz and Yauch have amassed 40 million in record sales of a critically acclaimed canon including 1989’s landmark Paul’s Boutique, 1992’s Check Your Head, the #1-debuting trifecta of 1994’s Ill Communication, 1998’s Hello Nasty and 2004’s To The 5 Boroughs, and 2007’s The Mix-Up. Beastie Boys’ innovative videos earned them MTV’s Video Vanguard Lifetime Achievement award in 1998, while a Madison Square Garden show shot by 50 audience members was painstakingly edited into AWESOME; I F—-N’ SHOT THAT!, which debuted at Sundance in 2006. The band has also been lauded for its humanitarian efforts, ranging from organizing the Tibetan Freedom Concert series which drew attention to the Chinese government’s human rights violations in Tibet, to the New Yorkers Against Violence benefits, whose proceeds went to organizations chosen for their efforts on behalf of September 11th victims least likely to receive help elsewhere.

The exact release date of Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 and touring plans will be announced once details are available

Deerhunter: “Helicopter” (Diplo & Lunice Remix) (Video)

Deerhunter – Helicopter (Diplo & Lunice Remix)


Music Week:

…“International is another thing we are exploring, dipping a toe in and seeing how we might go about it,” Schreiber says. “We would like to do more international events in the UK, in Europe, in Australia… I feel like it is on the cards”…

From an interview in The Guardian:

“There have been many instances of artists coming out against (negative) Pitchfork reviews and attacking us. Sometimes it gains favour with their fans and sometimes they say: ‘Oh, shut up – it’s music criticism. Why don’t you grow up’.’ It’s not as common as I thought it would be. Everybody on the internet is so critical of anybody who steps out of line.”

Kings Of Leon’s ‘Come Around Sundown’ set to be fastest-selling album of 201

Kings Of Leon look set to score the fastest-selling album of 2010 with their new effort ‘Come Around Sundown’.

According to today’s official midweek chart the album, which was released on Monday, is heading straight to Number One.

Eminem’s ‘Recovery’ is the only album to have sold more copies in a single week so far this year.

Robbie Williams’ ‘In And Out Of Consciousness’ compilation is the midweek Number Two.

In the singles stakes The Wanted’s new single ‘Heart Vacancy’ is jostling with Bruno Mars’ ‘Just The Way You Are (Amazing)’ for the top spot.


Mark E Smith:
“We were playing a festival in Dublin the other week. There was this other group like, warming up in the next sort of chalet, and they were terrible. I said ‘shut them cunts up’ and they were still warming up, so I threw a bottle at them. The bands said ‘that’s the Sons of Mumford’ or something, ‘they’re number five in charts!’ I just thought they were a load of retarded Irish folk singers.”

The Fall and Mumford and Sons were both on the bill for the Electric Picnic festival, which took place near Dublin last month…
