Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins

Billy Corgan doesn’t have a mental filter.  He says what he thinks without considering the consequences.  It’s the reason he is loved by so many and seen as a pretentious dick by others.  Corgan went on a twitterant (Twitter + rant = twitterant), miniature when compared to the dense blocks of text produced by Kanye West, ripping into NY/NJ royal hipster collective Pavement.

“Just found out SP [Smashing Pumpkins] is playing with Pavement in Brazil. It’s gonna be one of those New Orleans type funerals,” wrote Corgan.  “I say that because they represent the death of the alternative dream, and we follow with the affirmation of life part…” he continued.  “…funny how those who pointed the big finger of ‘sell out’ are the biggest offenders now…yawn. they have no love…by the way, we’ll be the band up there playing NEW songs because we have the love xx.”


Damon Albarn

In an interview with NME, Damon Albarn, frontman and creator of Gorillaz, has revealed that his musical collective of orchestras, cartoons, and former members of The Clash, among others, plans to release the follow up to Plastic Beach in time for Christmas.

Apparently, while on tour, Albarn and company turned their hotel rooms into makeshift recording studios, while Albarn, playing the engineer, took everything down on his iPad.  He will complete the mixing on said iPad in hopes of producing the first album via iPad.  Innovative? Yes.  But will it be worth owning? Probably, but I’m still skeptical.

Take a listen to Gorillaz latest single “Doncamatic” featuring Daley:

This is the sickest drumming performance I’ve ever seen.  This guy is terribly angry and needs a new band ASAP…Hilarious:

Conan & Jack White

Would you like to know the single biggest reason why Conan is, and forever will be, greater than any late night host on television today?  Because Coco is considered “cool” and his social status enables him to pull in musical guests like Jack White for his inaugural TBS show, followed by Soundgarden tonight.  George Lopez isn’t raking in a musical guest list of that magnitude, and don’t get me started on Leno, Letterman, Elaine’s boss from Seinfield, or Jimmy Fallon…Kimmel is okay.

Here is what played out last evening on the opening night of Conan, O’Brien’s new gig on TBS:

And here is what took place in that black and white photograph when Conan and his Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On TV Band put on a show with Jack White at his Third Man Records studio in Nashville back in mid-June (a.k.a. Bonnaroo).

“Seven Nation Army”

“Creep” with Conan on lead vox as a late 19th Century chimney sweep.

And finally, White conducted an interview with Coco:

O’Brien also laid down this ridiculous little spoken word account of his take on Frankenstein…it’s weird.

The Gay Blades ON TOUR!!!

In support of the band’s sophomore effort Savages, The Gy Blades are barn storming across the American heartland, bringing their wild party of a live show to a middle and western united states venue near you.  And I know you want to hear a re-mix of the band’s single, “Try To Understand,” by Dmerit.

If you haven’t seen The Promise: The Making Of Darkness On The Edge Of Town yet, you are doing yourself a disservice.  If you want to listen to the album, head over to Jack’s Music next Monday.  E-Street Shuffle, NJ’s premier tribute band to The Boss and Company will be performing.
