Gorillaz Downloads Free iPad Album In Xmas StockingsImagine waking up on Christmas morning with a brand new Gorillaz album in your stocking... "I'm going to try and put it out before Christmas," Damon Albarn promised in November, talking about the Gorillaz album he recorded in hotel rooms on his iPad while touring America. True to his word, together with the band's co-creator and animator, Jamie Hewlett, Albarn has now disclosed that the album will be available as a "free" download for fans on Christmas Day.

"I hope I'll be making the first record on an iPad," Albarn said in November.

On the band's recent US tour, Albarn spent his spare time in his hotel room recording a new album on his iPad. The album will be released on the band's website on Christmas Day.

"At the moment we've got an advent calendar on our website and there is a daily door that opens to reveal a gift," Hewlett explained yesterday to Perth Now, during the band's tour of Western Australia.

"On Christmas Eve a video for one of the new songs from the iPad album will be released," he continued. "Then, on Christmas Day fans get the whole album downloaded to their computer for free* as a gift."

Featured Band (7): Morning Parade Aims For the Stars PDF Print E-mail

Featured Band (7): Morning Parade Aims For the Stars"We'd like to play the first gig on the moon," Steve Sparrow the frontman of UK band Morning Parade recently stated. For the time-being at least Morning Parade will have to settle for more realistic ambitions though it is clear it has set its sights on being a stadium-band. "We have a rule," the band told the Guardian. "Whenever we write something, we ask ourselves, 'Can you see 100,000 people singing this back to you?' If not, we get rid of it. We want to be huge." Through its "anthemic, electronicised rock for the masses" and a newly released debut single, "Under the Stars," Morning Parade is truly aiming for the stars.

"They fit the niche marked 'robust indie with stadium ambitions, passionate vocals and penchant for rave-rock rhythms' like a glove," Paul Lester reported in the Guardian. "A Delphic with the common touch."

"We'd be lying if we said that wasn't our ambition," Sparrow told Spinner. "The first gigs that I went to at 14-years-old were like Muse at Docklands Arena and that was amazing. We like the smaller venues as well but want to write songs that fill arenas."

Formed in Harlow, Essex by Sparrow and bassist Phil Titus, the band's line-up consists of childhood friends Steve Sparrow (vocals, guitar), Chad Thomas (guitar), Phil Titus (bass), Ben Giddings (keyboards), and Andy Hayes (drums).

Morrissey Supports Marr Against Politicians and Hunting PDF Print E-mail

Morrissey Supports Marr Against Politicians and HuntingThe Smiths' Morrissey has added his support to former band member Johnny Marr against British Prime Minister David Cameron, whilst clarifying the reason for the recent outburst by Marr through Twitter.

In a message he posted on Morrissey zine True To You on Saturday, Morrissey criticized Cameron, saying he "hunts and shoots and kills stags," adding, "apparently for pleasure."

"I would like to, if I may, offer support to Johnny Marr," Morrissey wrote. "To those who have expressed concern over Johnny's words in view of the fact that David Cameron has pledged immense allegiance to the music of the Smiths, I would like to try to explain why I think Johnny is right not to be flattered."

Morrissey conceded that, "It is true that music is a universal language – the ONLY universal language, and belongs to all, one way or another."

He continued, "[Nevertheless] It was not for such people that either 'Meat is Murder' or 'The Queen is Dead' were recorded; in fact, they were made as a reaction against such violence."

He further explained that David Cameron "wanted to repeal the Hunting Act, which would mean the brutal killing of foxes, hares, deer, badgers, otters – just about anything that moves."

Late 80's and 90's band The Sundays always had exactly the right name for a band whose albums were perfect for a lazy Sunday morning. Just as the music of The Sundays is remembered fondly for the ethereal sound of Harriet Wheeler's vocals, the same can be said about the fledgling recordings of Let's Buy Happiness and the melodic tones of Sarah Hall. This is not a disservice to the musical abilities of Wheeler's partner David Gavurin or to the undoubted talents of band members of Let's Buy Happiness (which are all integral parts of the whole), but it is a fact of life in popular music - as 70's musician and composer Richard Carpenter may attest. The resemblance of Hall's voice to that of Wheeler's is both uncanny and welcome at the same time.

"They take the ecclesiastical soundscape as designed by Robin Guthrie [of the Cocteau Twins] et al and give it a poppy spin... [Sarah Hall's] got a voice that connotes angelic purity," Paul Lester wrote for the Guardian. "If Let's Buy Happiness had been around circa 1989/90, they would have been duking it out with The Sundays for the front cover of Melody Maker or NME."
