The eccentric Sheffield based band THE MOONLANDINZ with members of controversial gang Fat White Family and the Eccentronic Research Council will release their long-awaited debut album Interplanetary Class Classics, co-produced by Sean Lennon this Friday
(24 March). Today they revealed a third new track from the LP. THIS CITIES UNDONE
is a swirling, spaced out, dancey trip featuring Sean‘s mother YOKO ONO whose far out vocals give this magnetizing song a special, freakish edge. You can experience the spooky groove via Rolling Stone Magazine here .

BLONDIE – New Feel Good Track ‘LONG TIME’ Confirms Their Relevant Comeback…

‘Long Time’ by BLONDIE

Icon Debbie Harry and BLONDIE are back! The veteran pop punks will release brand new – their eleventh – album POLLINATOR on 5 May featuring a long and impressive guest list with Dev Hynes, Johnny Marr, Laurie Anderson, Charli XCX, Sia, Joan Jett, TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek and The Strokes’ Nick Valensi. The band already shared two elevating dance crackers, Fun and Monster, from the new LP, proving their comeback is absolutely relevant. And, now, after hearing third new track LONG TIME I even have to admit that their return will be a blessing. Long Time is a feel good rainbow, catchy as hell, brilliantly arranged and richly composed. Blondie will soundtrack many parties this summer… again. Pop gold!

Looking back in time… memorable moments in sonic history!

‘Code: Selfish’ by THE FALL
Released 22 march 1992

What the press said…

NME
“‘Code Selfish’ is harsh and uncompromising, although there is a doffed cap to melody amongst the steaming rubble, the detritus. Despite critical laurels and garlands, real and lasting, commercial success has always eluded The Fall and subsequently they’ve become bitter, cynical and twisted as opposed to mellowing with age. This album is a triumph of the imagination.”
Score: 9/10

ALL MUSIC
“An underrated and hard-to-find Fall album, this 1992 release returned to a harder, more caustic band than found on the previous year’s ‘Shift Work’. Smith’s writing was beginning to pare itself down to the essence, relying on repetition and imagery. An album that improves
with age.”

Score: 3/5

RECORD COLLECTOR
“Thankfully Smith snapped out of his post-Brix/bereavement funk and ushered in a new era of experimenting with machines and production techniques. Always different, always the same: even when they’re a bit mediocre, they’re still largely brilliant.”
Score: 4/5

Music, maestro, please. Here are 3 of the many highlights…

When THE KILLS Cover THE VELVET UNDERGROUND…

‘Pale Blue Eyes’ by THE KILLS

Many artists have covered songs by that highly influential and legendary 60s New York gang THE VELVET UNDERGOUND. One of the best renditions (so far) is by THE KILLS. Jamie Hince‘s squeaky, sharp-edged guitar blues swagger combined with the sultry voice
of charismatic singer Alison Mosshart is just perfect for that mysterious, dark VU sound. The duo recorded their version of PALE BLUE EYES as one of the B-sides for single ‘The Last Goodbye’, a track from their ‘Blood Pressures‘ album (2011). Here’s the gloomy result…

Sometimes I feel so happy,
Sometimes I feel so sad
Sometimes I feel so happy
But mostly you just make me mad
Baby, you just make me mad
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

Thought of you as my mountain top
Thought of you as my peak
Thought of you as everything
I’ve had but couldn’t keep
I’ve had but couldn’t keep
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

If I could make the world as pure
and strange as what I see
I’d put you in the mirror
I put in front of me
I put in front of me
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

Skip a life completely
Stuff it in a cup
She said, Money is like us in time
It lies, but can’t stand up
Down for you is up.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

It was good what we did yesterday
And I’d do it once again
The fact that you are married
Only proves, you’re my best friend
But it’s truly, truly a sin
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes


‘Pale Blue Eyes’ was on the VU’s self-titled, third album (1969)…

Please welcome from Paris, France: THE PSYCHOTIC MONKS. This amazing gang will release their debut LP ‘Silence Slowly and Madly Shines’ on 21 April. Single IT’S GONE
will give you an idea of their deranged mental state. It’s a quiet/LOUD/quiet/LOUD
stoner rock roller coaster. Haunting and menacing from start to finish. I don’t know
what abbey these French monks come from but living locked up surely messed up
their heads. Ace! Play this sonic madness very loud and lose yourself completely!…
