Beady Eye 2nd album, The Streamers play Blur vs Oasis gig, Jesse Hughes Solo Project

Wed, 04/20/2011 - 7:56AM by artemisreno 0 Comments -

Liam Gallagher promising that Beady Eye won't be hanging around when it comes to releasing their second album.
The singer told the Irish Times that they wouldn't let promotion for their recent debut 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' run into 2012 and instead would get to work on its follow-up.
Comparing life in Beady Eye to his old Oasis regime he said: "We're not going to put the ball down, sit around in a big house and go 'We're great'. We won't be booking into the studio for months and months on end."
He added: "We're not going to be rolling over this album into the next year. There will be an awesome second album coming soon. We're responsible for our every move. We're on our own label. We do all our own artwork and videos. It's not like, 'Oh, send that off to the visual arts person'."
'Different Gear, Still Speeding' was released in February.

The Streamers play British Invasion Tribute Wars.
SeanYox & TheStreamers will play British Heavywaight Championship - Blur vs Oasis show at Bell House. July 2nd .


"This is one of the rare tribute gigs we're doing, It's nice setting , great venue, and definitely, great music that all we gonna get into.This show have accent on Blur and Oasis but also some legendary acts are covered like Stone Roses" said Sean. Bell House is located at Park Slope Brooklyn
And Tickets are available here

Eagles Of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes has launched his solo project, Boots Electric.
Boots Electric's first release will be the 'Raped By Miracles' 12-inch vinyl single, due out later this year through Miracle Records, a new label founded by Travis Keller of Buddyhead.com.

New York Mods concert at The Delancey march 30th.
Alan Merrill , Sean Yox & The Streamers playing New York Mods Party at The Delancey (169 Delancey st) Newn York.
Tatiana Lima and Things They Carried joing the line up.
.............
Taking Back Sunday have debuted a new song, 'El Paso', online.
The band have uploaded a lyric-video with audio for the new tune. Scroll down and click below to listen to it.
The Long Island rockers recently announced that they have reunited with their original line-up, and that a new album will arrive this summer.
"The band had been in a weird place for a while," vocalist Adam Lazzara told NME. "So once we all started hanging out and writing and playing music together again, it felt like we had got back on track."

.........................
Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky has jumped to the defence of Natalie Portman following allegations about her ballet dancing in the film. The actress won the Oscar for her performance in the dance thriller. Last weekend she came under fire from body double: Sarah Lane of the American Ballet Theatre
Lane claimed to have been the victim of a cover-up designed to help Portman's Oscar chances. She suggested that although film bosses said Portman had learned to dance like a professional in under a year, in fact she performed only a small portion of the full-body dance sequences seen on screen.
Aronofsky has angrily reacted in a statement, insisting that Portman performed the vast majority of the sequences herself, reports The Guardian.
He said: "Here is the reality. I had my editor count shots. There are 139 dance shots in the film. 111 are Natalie Portman untouched. 28 are her dance double Sarah Lane. If you do the math, that’s 80 percent Natalie Portman."
He added: "The shots that feature the double are wide shots and rarely play for longer than one second. There are two complicated longer dance sequences that we used face replacement. Even so, if we were judging by time over 90 percent would be Natalie Portman."
Responding to Lane's allegation that Portman had been unable to dance in pointe shoes, Aronofsky retorted: "To be clear, Natalie did dance on pointe in pointe shoes. If you look at the final shot of the opening prologue, which lasts 85 seconds, and was danced completely by Natalie, she exits the scene on pointe... I don't want anyone to think that’s not her they are watching. It is."Artemis!

Liam Gallagher "reality check", Beady Eye First Gig in UK, Art Brut new album

Fri, 03/04/2011 - 5:14AM by artemisreno 0 Comments -

RTV-BUZZ!

Liam Gallagher has said the Number 31 UK chart peak of Beady Eye's debut single 'The Roller' was a "reality check" for the band.
The new song, released in January, entered the chart at 31 and dropped to Number 68 the following week.
Asked by Spinner how he felt about the track's failure to sell more, Gallagher replied: "It was a reality check. But that's the way it is."
However, the frontman was defensive about how the band's debut album, 'Different Gear, Still Speeding', which is set to chart this Sunday, might sell in comparison to previous Oasis albums. He said: "As far as comparing it to Oasis, let me tell you this, the fucking record's only been released today so it could do as well as the Oasis records. But it's only been released today, so who knows where it'll go?"
According to midweek sales figures, 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' is at Number Three in the UK albums chart. Ironically, 'The Roller''s peak at Number 31 in the UK singles chart equals that of Oasis' debut single 'Supersonic', which reached the same position in 1994.

Beady Eye made their live debut in Glasgow tonight (March 3), playing for just over an hour to a packed crowd at the city's Barrowlands venue.
Stage-banter was kept to a minimum by Liam Gallagher's new band throughout the 14-song show, and the singer made no reference to his estranged brother Noel or his old band Oasis.
Beady Eye's first song was 'Four Letter Word', played shortly after 9pm (GMT). They followed it with a set made up largely of tracks from their new album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding'. Before playing 'Bring The Light', Gallagher did address the crowd, saying: "Right, I reckon it's time to get off the fence, yeah? Because I've seen a few of you sitting on it."
The Scottish audience reacted positively to the band throughout, chanting Gallagher's name in between each song. Although most of the tracks the band played were faithful in sound to their recorded counterparts, the Andy Bell-penned 'Millionaire' was given a distinctly more electric-feel than on the album.
The band ended their set with their cover of World Of Twist's 'Sons Of The Stage'. Gallagher thanked the crowd for "coming along and checking it out" before leaving the stage.
Beady Eye played:
'Four Letter Word'
'Beatles <> And Stones'
'Millionaire'
'For Anyone'
'The Roller'
'Wind Up Dream'
'Bring The Light'
'Standing On The Edge Of The Noise'
'Kill For A Dream'
'Three Ring Circus'
'Man Of Misery'
'The Beat Goes On'
'The Morning Sun'
'Sons of the Stage'

Art Brut have revealed details of their new album, a free download and a London residency.
London's pop situationists release their fourth record, 'Brilliant… Tragic!', on May 23 through Cooking Vinyl. It is preceded by a single, 'Lost Weekend', a week earlier on May 16.
Like its predecessor 'Art Brut Vs Satan', the album was produced by Pixies legend Black Francis, but Eddie Argos has revealed things were different this time: "We had more time in the studio this time, so Black Francis had time to teach me to sing. I'm very proud that I sing on it. Only took four albums to start singing, not bad."
Explaining the record's themes, Argos continued: "'Bang Bang Rock & Roll' did what it said on the tin. 'It's A Bit Complicated' was a bit complicated. On 'Art Brut Vs Satan' we had to fight Satan. This one follows the same pattern, it is a brilliant, tragic, record. If it was a TV show you'd define it as a dramedy."
Art Brut are also offering a free track, 'Unprofessional Wrestling', along with a host of extras via Pledgemusic.
The tracklisting for 'Brilliant… Tragic!' is:
'Clever Clever Jazz'
'Lost Weekend'
'Bad Comedian'
'Sexy Sometimes'
'Is Dog Eared'
'Martin Kemp Welch Five-A-Side Football Rules!'
'Axel Rose'
'I Am The Psychic'
'Ice Hockey'

Fri, 02/18/2011 - 8:31AM by artemisreno 0 Comments -

RTV-BUZZ:
Radiohead's Tokyo new album preview is cancelled due to security fears.
NME understands that frontman Thom Yorke had been set to announce their new 'The King Of Limbs' record with a broadcast on Hachiko Square in Shibuya at 6:59pm (JST), which will be 9:59am UK time.
However, due to security concerns the broadcast has now been canned, reports Time Out Tokyo.
Despite the cancellation many Radiohead fans have turned up to the location expecting some kind of appearance.
Instead it is set to be shown at Thekingoflimbs.jp website at the same time. It will be be region locked so will only be available to Japanese users. It is expected to be made available worldwide at 2pm UK time.
The new album is scheduled to be released tomorrow (19). It is tipped to feature eight songs, although the band have said that they will not release tracklisting details ahead of its release.

The Strokes' Julian Casablancas has said there was "resentment" in the band during the recording of their new album 'Angles'.
The frontman spoke in the new issue of NME, on UK newsstands or available digitally now (February 17).
Casablancas made the admission when asked why he did not turn up to early album recording sessions at New York's Avatar Studios.
"I think I just wanted to wait until they'd done their thing, so that I could do mine," Casablancas said of the sessions. The rest of The Strokes began work on the new album without him.
He added: "When [The Strokes] is described more negatively, it seems like I come in going, 'This is how it is, and if you don't like it, back off.' But it's never like that. I just want to have a creative, constructive, fun conversation. And I just think that, for whatever reason, we never pulled that off and there was resentment."

Radiohead manager about new album, Allan Merril about Geroge Harrison concert in New York

Tue, 02/15/2011 - 10:34AM by artemisreno 0 Comments -

RTV BUZZ!

Radiohead's manager Chris Hufford has described the release plan for the band's new album 'The King Of Limbs' as a "logical progression".
The record will be released as a paid-for download on Saturday (February 19), then on CD and 12-inch vinyl on March 28.
In 2007 the band released their 'In Rainbows' album as a pay-what-you-like download before it came out physically in 2008. As well as calling the new paid-for download a "logical progression", Hufford said he was trying to look after the band's interests by charging this time round.
"Our allegiances are to the band," he said. "We manage Radiohead, we don’t manage retail or labels, we just manage the band and are just trying to do the best possible thing to allow another brilliant record to be embraced by the fanbase."
'The King Of Limbs' will also be released on May 9 as what the band are billing as a 'newspaper album'. The package features the album on 10-inch vinyl and CD plus artwork sheets designed to look like a newspaper.
Radiohead fansite Ateaseweb.com crashed under the weight of hits yesterday (14) morning as fans searched for information about the new album.

Alan Merrill talking about Geroge Harrison Concert

Last night I played a memorial concert dedicated
to the great George Harrison of The Beatles,
(who, apart from being a founding member
of that legendary phenomenal band)
was the man who brought the electric 12 string
into rock music, and in turn influenced people
like Jim McGuinn of The Byrds to go forward with
that jangly sound.
George was a guitar innovator and a very versatile
player. Certainly one of my teachers, through Beatle
records and just watching his fingers on TV and film
making chord shapes.
So, naturally I brought my jangly 12 string Taylor
acoustic guitar with me to do the show.
I call the guitar my "little orchestra."
It does have a big sound.

So last night I was the headlining act at a show
celebrating George's life.
All of the bands were excellent and fun to watch.
I went on later than advertised, at about 10:45 or 11 PM.
Things were backed up.

Since my set would be played solo acoustic, it was easy
for me to set up and get going once the previous act packed
up their gear.

My set list-

1 - Taxman
2 - If I Needed Someone
3 - Nothing Ever Happens
4 - Theo
5 - Walk Away Renee
6 - Brand New Man
7 - Anna
8 - When The Night Comes
9 - White Heat
10 - My last Night With You
11 - Within You And Without You
12 - I Love Rock N Roll
First encore
13 - The Sound Of Jets
Second encore
14 - Handyman
