Stealth Links for Cubicles!

  • Black Rebel Motorcycle Club played a gig on “Record Store Day”, and offer you the next best thing to being there: download ten songs from the show as MP3s (for free!)
  • The Libertines have reconvened to write a musical. Think Cats, but with drugs and supermodels.
  • Jesus and Mary Chain have recorded a new song for the Heroes soundtrack titled “All Things Must Pass” (cheeky!) and NME has the MP3 to prove it.
  • Nuptuals? Awww. Didn’t even notice these two on the Pottery Barn registry. I hope Lou and Laurie aren’t short on stemware or teacups.
  • All Hail the Modfather! Paul Weller’s newest album, titled 22 Dreams, is coming in June. Spin calls him a “cherished English rock’n’roll touchstone.” Dang, save that one for the obit — he’s still as busy (and heavy) as ever! Check out the new record’s guest list and track list.
  • A frustrated grocery checker wonders why the Gossip’s Beth Ditto won’t buy some goddam pantyhose; after all, “they come in several colors”.
  • A Replacements reunion? It almost happened for Coachella, and still might. In the meantime, let’s stick to what we do know: KEXP DJ Kevin Cole is featuring (and giving away!) the new Replacements CD reissues all week on the Afternoon Show.
  • Two of the three Pipettes have left the band to (…ready?) “pursue other musical pursuits” and have (already) been replaced by the Remaining Original Pipette. Can’t people just say “I fired them” anymore?
