Here are some quick news links for you:

  • Idolator reports that the last residence of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash burned to the ground yesterday.
  • Each Note Secure has some live video clips of Sufjan Stevens performing some new songs.
  • The White Stripes‘ icky new artwork for their forthcoming album is being critiqued all of the blogosphere, as here on The Modern Age.
  • Apparently, the former drummer of Blur is running for a position in the Westminster Council. Read the story and check out the interview over at The Tripwire.
  • Legal times are tough for many artists these days: Snoop Dogg faces drug and gun charges, The Beach Boys lost their lawsuit against two men whom they claim stole $60 million worth of memorabilia, and an ex-manager of The Grateful Dead has been sentenced for income tax evasion. Good thing all is well in the world of indie rock! (right?)
  • While it may not (yet anyway) be a legal issue, Lily Allen is none too thrilled about a MySpace parody by “LDN is a Victim”, who skewers her for being “middle class”, and responds in the cheeky fashion you’d expect. Aversion has the story.
