Lot's of Pink Floyd songs there... Roger Waters lost his pig during the set - it floated away accidentatlly - so for once a pig did fly.
The inter web reports:
"As tall as a two-story house and as wide as two school buses, the pig was led from lines held on the ground Sunday as Waters played a version of Pink Floyd's "Pigs" from the 1977 album "Animals." Then it just floated away."

Which just goes to show that eveything on the web is wrong as the set list shows Roger Waters did not play Pigs!

Scott Weiland jailed for drink driving

Stuff reports that Scott Weiland, lead singer for the band Stone Temple Pilots, has been sentenced to eight days in jail for drunken driving.

Weiland, former front man for Velvet Revolver, entered a plea of no contest, the functional equivalent of a guilty plea in California, to a single misdemeanour count of driving under the influence of alcohol - his second DUI conviction in nearly four years.

Naughty Boy!


Weiland was also placed on four years' unsupervised probation, ordered to enrol in an 18-month alcohol program and fined roughly $US1600.

I guess sentancing timing might muck up the forth coming Stone Temple Pilots Tour. Either way its good publicity...!

In July 2004, Weiland pleaded no contest to a DUI charge and was placed on three years' probation under orders to complete a six-month drug program.

Guns N Roses in negotiations for the release of "Chinese Democracy"

Here's a statement from GNR  about the news that GNR guitarist Robin Finck is going on tour with Nine Inch Nails. Note the reference to Chinese Democracy!

"Robin's plans caught everyone in Guns, as well as our fans, a bit off-guard.

Really, Del James' private e-mail that someone took upon themselves to post publicly is the best way for us to address things at this time: "Only Robin knows what Robin's doing."

Neither we nor management, etc., know any more in this regard and we prefer not to speculate or offer opinions at this time.

Robin's Robin. We're in negotiations for the release of "Chinese Democracy" and things are going well.

When we begin to put tour plans together, we'll see where things are. Until then, Robin's touring with NIN and we're working with management on our game plans.

Our thanks to those who continue to show their support.

Guns N' Roses"

And there endeth the update.

Velvet Revolver looking for new singer on internet, Scott Weiland gets broadband

Velvet Revolver is considering creating a website to find a replacement for singer. Well whoppee! Almost everyone who cares would know that Scott Weiland, left Velvet Revolver earlier this month.

"The band is actually talking about building a website (and) doing some auditions via that, so that's been something that's developing at this point," guitarist Slash has been quoted as saying and has apparently suggested it would be happening "in the next month or so."

Slash said he did not have any one in mind - and that would defintely include Axl as in Slash's Biography he makes it absolutely clear that is never going to happen.

"We're at that point of just listening to different things ... it's one of those kind of situations where you can't really explain it to anybody because you'll know it when you hear it. So I'm waiting to get that feeling of, 'Yeah that's it."'

Maybe they should produce another Rockstar show like they did for INXS and that shithouse Rockstar Supernova band. I bet the producers have already started asking those questions themselves.

-

In other news new reunited with the Stone Temple Pilots as megaphone trumpeting front man, Scott Weiland bought a laptop and got broadband installed at the rehab centre today... ;)

For those about to Rock ...

For those about to Rock ... AC/DC have announced they will release a new album this year.  The official  band website has a brief note saying "The waiting is almost over! AC/DC fans can expect the band's next album of new material some time later this year". Then maybe they'll tour..???

Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots producer Brendan O'Brien is shaping the record and Mike Fraser who has engineered for AC/DC in the past is on board too.
This will be the first new material since the release of Stiff Upper Lip 8 long years ago.

Let's hope it's out before Chinese Democracy.

Shihad ! Shihad ! Jihad! Shihad !

Shihad Have a new album coming out called Beautiful Monster so they be doing the promos. Here's a bit from the skinny fella.

The story also had this summary of Shihad's discography.


Who: Shihad
Line-up: Jon Toogood (vocals/guitar), Tom Larkin (drums), Phil Knight (guitars), Karl Kippenberger (bass)
New album: Beautiful Machine, out April 21
Playing: Vodafone Homegrown, Wellington, April 26

20 years, seven albums, one name change...

Churn (1993)

Harnessing their love of Metallica and Slayer, primal post-punks Killing Joke, industrial metallers Ministry, and the sonic noise of local band Bailter Space, they came up with something strikingly unique. It's telling that a song like Screwtop is a crowd-pleaser at Shihad gigs 15 years on.

Essential tracks: Screwtop; I Only Said.

Killjoy (1995)

Shihad learned about subtleties, and Killjoy made for a much more refined beast than Churn. The "fruity" influence of the Skeptics came through and it fluctuates from beautifully heavy (You Again) to fearsome (Gimme Gimme) to abrasive (Silvercup).

Essential tracks: Deb's Night Out; Gimme Gimme.

Shihad (1996)

After two heavy albums you can forgive them for going a little poppier and, um, softer. This self-titled record includes Home Again - Shihad's answer to the Exponents' Why Does Love Do This To Me? - and proved Toogood writes catchy hooks that still rock without the trademark heaviness.

Essential tracks: Home Again; La La Land.

The General Electric (1999)

This album combined great tunes with slabs of heaviness to back them up. It was heavy in a weighty sense. From its spiralling set-the-scene intro, to the berserk My Mind's Sedate, to the perfectly paced plod of Pacifier, it sounds like a beautiful machine.

Essential tracks: Pacifier; My Mind's Sedate.

Pacifier (2002)

This is when it started going a little hairy. They say American-produced albums sound big and polished; the truth is The General Electric sounded far better than Pacifier, which was more watered-down than weighty. Still, a song like Run is classic Shihad - just listen to the version on Pacifier Live.

Essential tracks: Run; Semi-Normal.

Love Is the New Hate (2005)

Not since Killjoy had Shihad sounded so venomous than on tracks like the all-in shouting chorus of Day Will Come. It's angry - and opening song, None of the Above, about the funeral of a friend, also sets a sombre yet somehow uplifting tone.

Essential tracks: All the Young Fascists; Saddest Song in the World.

Beautiful Machine (2008)

If you thought the Fish album (Shihad) was Shihad doing catchy pop then Beautiful Machine is probably the band's most accessible album yet. Find out on April 21.

Essential tracks: Count It Up; When You Coming Home?.

How much did your air guitar cost bro?

Rolling Stone review of The Spaghetti Incident

This was the original Rolling Stone Magazine review of the Spaghetti Incident... seems pretty fair.

-


by Johnathan Gold

Rolling Stone #671 - December 9, 1993

The mid-'80s Los Angeles rock scene that gave birth to Guns n' Roses was a curious thing, neither quite punk scruffy nor given to glam excess, largely populated by hip kids who were too young to remember that Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith had long been completely passé. In retrospect, the original Guns n' Roses formula seems obvious enough, but no one had ever before successfully crossed the grungy street attitude of the underground Hollywood bands with the polished, riffy sound of the pouf-haired Sunset Strip popmetal bands, and the result was a giant paradigm shift in rock & roll.

But although the tremendous success of G n' R may have all but erased the few vestiges of the underground rock scene that still existed in Hollywood, the legacy of punk rock continued to thrive, at least as a hip influence: Punk rock codified the underground anti-establishment groove that is now mandatory for any artist harder edged than Whitney Houston, and rock groups as unrelievedly mainstream as Skid Row and Motley Crue now consider it more or less obligatory to include Sex Pistols songs in their sets. And with the rise of punk-rooted "alternative" music in the last couple of years, it has become apparent just what that music was an alternative to: G n' R, who had grown to represent this generation's ultimate in bloated rock excess.

In The Spaghetti Incident?, an album of mostly punky cover versions of drunkrock classics, Guns n' Roses reassert their roots in hard-edged rock & roll – some punk rock, some not “ the way that U2 tried to with Rattle and Hum when their "authenticity" had become suspect. But in recording half an album's worth of punk-rock songs, Guns n' Roses reveal themselves as a glam-rock band, and a good one, as if T. Rex and the Dolls had come out of early punk rather than the other way around.

"Black Leather," a post-mortem Sex Pistols song written by Steve Jones, sounds better than the original “ more bounce, heartier groove “ and the tough swagger of G n' R on this track may be what the original Pistols aspired to before Malcom McLaren pushed Johnny Rotten on them. There are quick, goofy versions of the Damned's "New Rose" and U.K. Subs' "Down on the Farm," which Axl delivers with an English accent as contrived as that of any Orange County hardcore singer; there is a loose, sloppy version of Iggy's "Raw Power" that would be a hit at any Whisky Jam Night.

Punk rock is sometimes best read as a vigorous howl of complaint against one's own powerlessness, but Axl doesn't quite connect to the punk-rock material on Spaghetti as anything but a conduit for pure aggression. He can't even seem to curse right. In his version of Fear's punkrock chestnut "I Don't Care About You," his is not the fuuuuuuck youuu of Fear's Lee Ving, the epithet of the misfit yelling at the cop car after it has safely rounded the corner, but the fuck you the tavern bully says as he shoves you hard in the chest. When Chris Cornell sings, "I want to fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck you," in the Soundgarden anthem "Big Dumb Sex," Cornell's voice is filled with longing and desire; Axl, reprising that Soundgarden chorus as a tag to the T. Rex song "Buick Makane," sounds like a guy reading cue cards on the set of a porno movie.

But the Nazareth anthem "Hair of the Dog" is almost a primo Guns n' Roses song to begin with, muscular riffing, forged-iron arpeggios, enraged lyrics just built for Axl's manly scream, exactly the sort of thing G n' R are best at “ hipwiggle music, '70s sounding without being explicitly retro “ powered by the sort of glam-groove Slash guitar and oddly baroque Matt Sorum drumming that seem merely overwrought elsewhere on the album. "Buick Makane" works the complex riff until it screams.

Punk-rock virtues are most apparent in the Duff-sung version of Johnny Thunders' "You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory," which features irregular arrangements, wavery vocals, even a splash of vulnerability. It's also the one song on the album you will probably fast-forward through in the car.

Chinese Democracy 'ready for release' ????

Stuff suggests Chinese Democracy is ready for release.

"According to reports, Chinese Democracy - which has been 14 years in the making and cost a rumoured $13 million - has been handed over to Geffen Records".

These guys suggest Axl Rose will star in his own reality show as well? Me thinks not.

A search of the net doesn't deliver an original source, its all heresay so I'll believe it when I have it in my left hand and my free Doctor Pepper in my right.

Popbitch Confirms Andy Taylor is not dead

Andy Taylor is not dead!!

The internet is not the best place to try an April Fool. A Duran Duran fan wrote a spoof story that Andy Taylor had suffered a heart attack in Ibiza. Word spread across the net, and people eventually started putting condolence messages on Andy's daughter's MySpace page.

20 year-old Georgia had lost her mobile phone charger so couldn't call her Dad to check. Luckily she finally emailed someone for news who was able to point out it was 1st April.

* Me Kitten

A lil piece on R.E.M. Accelerate liner notes ....

After becoming comfortable with placing his lyrics in the liner notes of the last few R.E.M. albums, Micheal Stipe appears to have taken another step and added some quotes before the lyrics of three songs.

Living Well is the best revenge

"Living Well is the best Revenge - george herbet (1593 - 1633) english clergyman and metaphysical poet"

Supernatural Superserious

"My brain is the key that sets me free" - harry houdini, 1874 - 1926"

Until the Day is Done

"When Facism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag amd carry the cross. -- Sinclair Lewis"

"thanks for the last and greatest betrayal of the last and greatest of human dreams. thanks for the american dream to vulgarize and falsify until the vare lies shine through -- willaim s. burroughs"

The Sinclair Lewis quote suggests George Bush and his public reliance on the Bible belies that he is the fascist bring his extreme (un) socially bent right wing views to America. Sinclair was an American novelist known for his satire of commcercial culture.

The last quote and the most appealing one to me, quote is Burrough's 'Thanks Giving Prayer' which is a cynical, hyperbolic bitch about things/crimes/tragedies that have befallen America.

See "thanks for the KKK, for nigger-killing lawmen feeling their notches, for decent church-going women with their mean, pinched, bitter, evil faces" and "thanks for vast herds of bison to kill and skin, leaving the carcass to rot". Its pretty scathing.

Stipe uses the quote to preface 'Until the day is done'. It can easily be read into this song as an another Stipe indictment of both the American Presidents that were named Bush. He's bascially counting down the days - when Bush is gone and all he represents is gone, the day will be done.

Its no suprise really that REM quoted Burroughs as he did a 'cover' of Star Me Kitten (originally from Automatic People, Burrough's version on the X Files sound track) where he spoke the lyrics over the orginal. And when he sang Fuck Me Kitten, he really meant it.

Split Enz Auckland Concert Review

Split Enz Auckland Concert Review

Where: Vector Arena, Auckland
When: Saturday, March 29

by Heather McCracken

It wouldn't be a Split Enz show without something weird and unexpected to start - in this case, a shuffling blob.

The billowing gold beast bobbed onto stage at Vector Arena before six members of the reunited band burst out, grinning wildly.

It was the first Auckland show for the New Zealand reunion tour, following a sold-out Wellington concert.

And there was no easing into it, with 55-year-old Tim Finn throwing himself around like a man chased by bees for the opening track, Shark Attack.

Little brother Neil took his turn on the microphone next with One Step Ahead and Give It A Whirl.

"It feels great already," Tim told the crowd. "This is going to be a good one."

In matching cream suits, the band known for their other-worldly style looked surprisingly demure.

But Noel Crombie's influence could still be seen in the billowing clouds of coloured fabric on the changing backdrop.

I Hope I Never and Message To My Girl were greeted with hand waving and syncronised swaying.

But it was Tim and Neil's harmony on the piano-led Stuff and Nonsense that produced the first genuine goosebump moment of the night.

"That was phenomenal, Tim," screamed an appreciative fan.

Not to be outdone, Noel Crombie took the spotlight for a show-stealing solo on the spoons, backed by Eddie Rayner on piano.

It was a two-hour set with no dull moments, and a celebration of a band overflowing with talent.

When Tim brought the crowd to its feet with Six Months In a Leaky Boat, Neil responded with I Got You.

The main set ended with an I See Red eruption.

Nobody even sat down before the first encore, (Charlie, That Was My Mistake) featuring a 'sing after me' session with Tim and a delightfully eccentric guitar solo from Crombie.

The second time they returned to the stage it was to remind us of the quirky brilliance of Bold As Brass, and wrap up beautifully with History Never Repeats.

Not every one loves Billy Corgan

Not every one loves Billy Corgan. Check out this review of the Pumpkins concert in Adelaide....

-


Then it was time for the band that everyone had waited to see, The Smashing Pumpkins. As Billy walked on stage, dressed in his silver skirt, the crowd erupted and with little hesitation they jumped straight into Porcelina of the Vast Oceans which had the crowd going crazy. After such a long wait between tours the expectations for this show where pretty high and for the most Billy and new look band met this expectation.

The first 90 mins was excellent, the set was awesome, the sound and light show was spectacular, but then for the last 45mins including the encore Billy went off on a self-indulgent John Butler style guitar odyssey that culminated with United States which had majority of the crowd looking at their watches.

The loudest cheer of the night was when Billy asked the crowd if they liked the old stuff better than the new stuff, to which he replied fuck you and preceded to rant for 10 mins why his new stuff is better bla bla bla. The most disappointing part of the night was the finale, Billy returned solo to the stage and played a one-track acoustic encore before leaving for the final time (If anyone knows what it was please let know).

The highlights of the show were Tonight, Tonight, an amazing acoustic 1979, Bullet With Butterfly Wings and Today (no surprises that its the older stuff). I think everyone left a bit shocked at how it ended, the show started so brilliantly and then drifted off to a pretty disappointing end.

Queens of the Stone Age Gig Review

Queens of the Stone Age have played plenty of shows at the Palace before, but that was the old Palace in St Kilda. "I've got a lot of blood in there," frontman Josh Homme said recently, before it was burnt to the ground.

By Patrick Donovan, 3 April in the Melbourne Age
 
But here he was, fronting the tightest, most interesting rock band on the planet, at the new, improved version in the city. Sight lines were vastly improved, the sound was great, but by charging $9 for mixed spirits and $5 for a bottle of water, it was as if they were factoring in the next five years of inflation.

From the start of this show, it seemed the Queens were intent on leaving more blood and sweat in the new Palace. The Mad Max films, AC/DC and his Geelong-born partner Brody Dalle have played major roles in Homme's life, so he was keen to turn it on in his adopted home town.

While the three guitarists extracted hard, dry riffs and alien sounds out of their instruments, behemoth drummer Joey Castillo drove the songs with rock precision. Bathed in green light from gothic chandeliers, he resembled the Incredible Hulk and looked as if he would need an intravenous drip applied if he went on any longer.

The 90-minute set was dominated by the sexy, cosmic songs from recent album Era Vulgaris such as Turning on the Screw, Sick Sick Sick and "one for the ladies" in Make it Wit Chu. This sexy music is better experienced in a dark club than at festivals.

The Queens have released five great albums, so it was always going to be difficult to please all the fans, but they chose wisely by delivering old gems Monsters in the Parasol, Go with the Flow and Regular John, which segued into a five-minute jam.
