Verve's Salisbury Stands In for Charlatans' Drummer BrookesThe Charlatans have announced through The Charlatans Official Website that The Verve’s Pete Salisbury will act as stand in drummer for the UK tour whilst Jon Brookes recovers from his operation.

The official announcement continues, "Brookes, who collapsed on stage in Philadelphia last week, is preparing for his operation this week, back in the UK. It is not known how long he will be out of action but it is thought that Salisbury will complete the October UK tour at least."

The Charlatans' US tour was postponed, following the collapse of drummer Jon Brookes during a gig at Philadelphia’s Johnny Brenda’s on September 15th.

The announcement that followed stated, "Early into the set Brookes suddenly collapsed and stopped breathing. Fortunately there was a doctor in the audience who administered first aid and got the drummer breathing again before the paramedics arrived minutes later. Brookes was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Philadelphia and during the night was given a CAT scan and has been responding well to treatment. He has now been transferred to a larger hospital in the city for further tests, although his condition is said to be improving and doctors believe there will be no long term effects on his health."

Weezer Smell Success With HurleyAccording to the LA Times, actor Jorge Garcia, who played the character Hurley in popular TV series "Lost," came onstage to perform “Perfect Situation” with Weezer while they were playing a secret show on Tuesday night at the Dunes Inn Hotel in Hollywood as part of Axe's One Night Only music series.

Before the music started, Jorge Garcia, the face of Weezer's latest album cover, took the stage just before 9 pm and introduced the band as "my new best friends." The actor has featured in the world of Weezer since the group chose his picture to grace the cover of Hurley. Videos of Garcia's rendition of "Perfect Situation," from Weezer's 2007 Make Believe album, can be viewed on YouTube.

In August, Guardian.co.uk revealed that the album is not, in fact, named after the fictional character, but named after a multinational clothing brand.

According to Brian Bell, Weezer's guitarist, surfwear company Hurley International "was funding the record at the beginning of the process". "We actually did some sort of advertisement [deal]," he said in an interview at the Mile High festival. "I don't even know how they're tied in so much, although we got some clothes [from them] and we did a photoshoot where we're wearing these clothes, and I think we're selling these clothes in malls." Hurley International, which specialises in skate and surf gear, is owned by Nike.

Stone Temple Pilots suspend tour after outburst PDF Print E-mail

Stone Temple Pilots suspend tour after outburstNEW YORK (Billboard) - Stone Temple Pilots have postponed 12 dates on their tour in the wake of singer Scott Weiland's rambling speech onstage during the trek's Houston stop.

The group has taken a "short break" beginning with the show scheduled for Tuesday in El Paso, according to its announcement, and will return to the road on October 8 in Tampa.

The band did not give a specific reason for the break, but Weiland's outburst on Sunday may have contributed.

According to the Houston Press, STP took the stage about one hour after opener Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's set, after which Weiland offered slurred tangents about his in-ear monitors, past drug use and thoughts on grunge music.

Ting Tings' Fall Treat Not for Idle HandsThe Ting Tings have revealed why they decided to escape to Berlin to record their sophomore album, leaving the celebrity culture of Manchester behind.

In a video interview with NME, Katie White and Jules De Martino said that the decision was not a difficult one to make.

Referring to their debut album, Jules said, "We didn't want to go back to Salford and do the same thing again".

Katie added, "One of the reasons why we didn't go back to Manchester (was) because I think you can go back to Manchester, be a minor celebrity, get a few free drinks if you go to the Night & Day and pat yourself on the back. I'd rather just make music."

The band's new single, "Hands", which is an "anthem for the overworked," includes the lyrics, "Clap your hands if you're working too hard" and is scheduled for release on October 11. The single can be listened to on their official website and viewed on YouTube. A remix called "Hands (Low Sunday Indie Fix)" can be listened to here.

The XX win UK Mercury music prize for debut album PDF Print E-mail

The XX win UK Mercury music prize for debut album(Reuters) - Electronic band the xx have been named the winners of Britain's 2010 Mercury Prize for their debut album, "The xx."

The band, which consists of Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim and Jamie Smith, recorded their album in a small garage part of record label XL's studios.

Their critically acclaimed album, a sleepy but intoxicating mix of electronic beats and understated vocals, was ranked number two on NME magazine's Best of the Year list, and reached number 10 in the UK charts.

"We've had the most incredible year," xx frontman Sim said. "It feels like every day we wake up to something incredible. It hasn't sunken in to be honest."

They beat 11 other nominees including rapper Dizzee Rascal with his platinum album, "Tongue N'Cheek," veteran musician Paul Weller's 10th solo album, "Wake up the Nation," and Corrine Bailey Rae's "The Sea."

The award, which honors the best album released in the past 12 months, comes with a 20,000 pound ($30,740) prize and is likely to boost the band's record sales.
