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.

U2 is world's top earning band: surveyNEW YORK (Reuters) - Irish rockers U2, who netted $130 million from their massive world tour and other deals, are the world's top-earning musicians, according to Forbes.com.

The group made $10 million in ticket sales on each tour stop and, along with merchandising revenue, hit the top of the list ahead of Australian heavy metal group AC/DC, who earned $114 million from their worldwide tour.

"Nearly half of the artists that make up this year's list of the top-earning music acts have been around long enough that they could have appeared on the soundtrack to "Back to the Future," Forbes.com said.  The financial website added that the top two bands could make as much as $372 million between June 2009 and June 2010.
