Bush "reunites" for album and tour PDF Print E-mail

Bush DETROIT (Billboard) - Gavin Rossdale has reunited with Bush drummer Robin Goodridge for a partial reunion of the British band that struck it big in the '90s with such songs as "Everything Zen" and "Comedown."

Even though it's been nine years since the release of the group's last studio album, "Golden State," the singer/songwriter feels like the band never ended.

"I felt the other stuff was cool, but it was more default than by design," said Rossdale, referring to his 2005 side project Institute and a 2008 solo album.

After touring in support of that album, "Wanderlust," Rossdale re-formed Bush for the new disc "Everything Always Now," which he says will most likely be out in October.

 
Supergroup The Dead Weather storm Montreux PDF Print E-mail

Supergroup The Dead Weather storm Montreux(Reuters) - Alternative rock supergroup The Dead Weather gave a blistering performance of heavy blues in front of a capacity Montreux Festival crowd in the sweltering Miles Davis Hall.

Anchored on drums by White Stripes frontman Jack White, looking like Johnny Depp in 1995 film 'Dead Man' with a feathered black hat sitting atop his shock of dark hair, the performance was in stark contrast to the genteel jazz of Nora Jones, headlining the festival's main hall upstairs at the weekend.

The Dead Weather was formed by White and The Kills' Alison Mosshart after Mosshart filled in as singer for the White Stripes on a joint-tour of the United States in 2008, when White suffered with chronic bronchitis.

Both musicians played Montreux in 2008, but this was their first appearance together at the festival, in an all-star band of multi-instrumentalists, including The Raconteurs bassist Jack Lawrence and Queens Of The Stone Age's Dean Fertita on guitar.

 
Canadian rockers Arcade Fire maintain DIY mystique PDF Print E-mail

Canadian rockers Arcade Fire maintain DIY mystiqueNEW YORK (Billboard) - The seven members of Arcade Fire, the Montreal band renowned for its fierce DIY commitment and aversion to the record-industry grind, are gearing up to release their first album in four years next month.

"The Suburbs" comes out on August 2 in the United Kingdom and a day later in Canada and the United States. It marks the follow-up to 2006's "Neon Bible" and their 2004 debut "Funeral," which each sold about half a million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "Neon Bible" debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

The band retains a tight grip on its destiny: it owns its own recording studio, master recordings and publishing rights; licenses those rights to different labels across the globe, territory by territory; refuses corporate sponsorships, private-party gigs and most commercial placements; and calls the shots for every major decision.

Geldof's Live Aid story to be made into a film PDF Print E-mail

Geldof's Live Aid story to be made into a film(Reuters) - The story behind Irish rock star Bob Geldof's global Live Aid concert to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia is being made into a TV film, the BBC said on Wednesday.

The 1985 concert, organized by Geldof and music promoter Harvey Goldsmith, reached an estimated 1.5 billion people and did much to raise the public and political profile of those suffering from poverty, starvation and disease in Africa.

Filming has already begun in Dublin for the 90-minute drama "When Harvey met Bob," which follows the story from the moment Geldof arrived home to find his then girlfriend Paula Yates holding their baby and weeping as she watched television footage from feeding camps in Eritrea.

Wilco's Jeff Tweedy busy with solo, band projects PDF Print E-mail

Tweedy busy with solo, band projectsNEW YORK (Billboard) - Most artists of a certain stature have at least one "let me tell you about the crazy music business" story. But few have had their story turned into a critically acclaimed feature-length documentary.

When Wilco left Reprise Records in 2001, the film "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart" captured the angst and turmoil surrounding the band's departure and subsequent signing to Nonesuch.

Fast-forward nearly a decade, and Wilco is again without a label. But this time, frontman Jeff Tweedy sounds happy and relaxed.

While the end of Wilco's Nonesuch deal has sparked speculation that it may start its own label, Tweedy says the band hasn't made a final decision on the matter. But he does say that he's finished with the major-label merry-go-round for good.

R.E.M.'s fifteenth studio album Collapse Into Now features vocals by Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, American singer-songwriter Patti Smith, and Canadian-born electronic musician Peaches.

In October, R.E.M.'s manager Bertis Downs told BBC Radio 6 Music that the band's new album will be called Collapse Into Now. Yesterday, multi-instrumentalist Mike Mills revealed on SPIN that the new album, due to be released early next year, has a more "expansive" sound than 2008's Accelerate and includes some special guests.

The twelve-track release is produced by Garret "Jacknife" Lee, who produced Accelerate and whose credits also include studio albums for Snow Patrol, U2, Block Party, Weezer, and Editors. The album includes "All the Best," "Walk It Back," and the record's closing song "Blue," which features vocals from Patti Smith. The band has yet to announce a full tracklisting. Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder sings on "It Happened Today," and Peaches is the vocalist on a track which has the word "alligator" in its title and features guitarist Lenny Kaye, best known as a member of the Patti Smith Group.
