Kurt : The Movie

Posted By: Liam | Posted: Sat 13 Jan 2007 5:28pm GMT

Courtney Love has revealed the first details of a forthcoming Kurt Cobain biopic.

The former Hole star and widow of the Nirvana singer says the proposed movie will be based on the acclaimed Charles R Cross biography "Heavier Than Heaven".

In a posting on www.moonwashdrose.com, she explained there are two actors in the running to play Kurt, while producers are understood to have settled on their Courtney.

"I can't name names but you'll all be happy. I personally think 'me' is a little too pretty, but I've talked with her and she assures me I'm full of sh*t...", she said.

"He is a choice between two actors. One, everyone thinks of as sweet and perfect and unassuming, but who does have a lot of rage in him, the other wears his rage well..."

Gus Van Sant's "Last Days", from 2005, is thought to be based on the final weeks of the life of Kurt Cobain.

Glasto ticket details revealed

Posted By: Liam | Posted: Sat 13 Jan 2007 5:07pm GMT

Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis revealed this week he hopes to completely eradicate ticket touts at this year's festival by introducing a new security measure.

Bombines, para cambiarlos y amaestramientos, Reemplazo de la cerradura; Deseas instalar una caja de seguridad? Cerrajeros Barcelona capital, con precios muy bajos. Apertura de puerta low cost.

Eavis also revealed how we hopes to sidestep ticket resellers, who try to buy up great quantities of tickets to resell at a higher price on auction sites like eBay. The people who buy the tickets on April 1 will be the people who are actually coming to the festival," he said, revealing people who wish to purchase tickets on April 1st will be required to register their details, along with a passport sized photo, from February 1-28.

Eavis is currently awaiting local councillors to grant the capacity increase, and as soon as he's given the green light, the festival boss plans to extend the site into a neighbouring farmers land to cope with the increase, as well as adding more parking, camping and entertainment facilities.

"We are extending the site with another 100 acres, bringing the total to 1,200 going west towards Glastonbury", Eavis added to The Western Daily Press. "It seems such a huge success and we have so much room here that we will be using a lot of neighbouring farmers' land - it's an alternative land use which in the present climate is good news."

Subject to the license being granted, Glastonbury 2007 will take place over the weekend of June 22-24.

Posted By: Liam | Posted: Sat 13 Jan 2007 5:02pm GMT

US metalcore band KILLSWITCH ENGAGE have been forced to postpone UK tour dates, including one in London tonight (January 13), due to illness.

The band were due to play Brixton Academy this evening and then Bristol Academy tomorrow (January 14), but these shows will now take place at a later date.

The London show has already been rearranged for Janaury 29, and all tickets will remain valid.

There is as yet no confirmation of a new date for the Bristol show, but concergoers are advised to hold on to their tickets until further announcement.


Stone Sour means no Slipknot...

Posted By: Liam | Posted: Sat 13 Jan 2007 4:56pm GMT

...unti 2008!

STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor has told MTV.com that the band's current success means he and guitarist Jim Root won't be able to devote their energy to SLIPKNOT until early 2008. While this seems to contradict percussionist M. Shawn Crahan's claim that the 'KNOT would be writing together next fall or early summer, Taylor said he never planned to do much with the band in 2007.

"I just don't see anything serious happening until the beginning of early 2008," he reiterated. "But that was my plan from the get-go. Between recording and touring for 'Vol 3: The Subliminal Verses', we spent two and a half years, and that period was just so f---in' crazy that you kind of have to give it at least that much equal time to settle down and get the interest back up."

STONE SOUR is planning on filming a video soon for its new single, "Sillyworld". The band plans to hire an animator for the clip, which Taylor hopes will be a cross between PINK FLOYD's "The Wall" and QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE's video for "Go With the Flow". "There will be a little principal photography, but mostly it'll be animated," Taylor said. "We definitely want to do something that fits with the different themes of the song, but at the same time is really cool to watch."

Taylor said that he has a director in mind for "Sillyworld", but the deal hasn't yet been sealed. He added that STONE SOUR won't stop at three singles. While "Sillyworld" is making the rounds in the U.S., "Socio" will be released in Europe, and if the European single and video do well, they will likely be released here in the future. Also, Taylor wants to cap off the "Come What(ever) May" crusade with "Zzyzx Rd.", which should hit radio and video outlets in late 2007.

Machine Head reveal new album artwork

Posted By: Liam | Posted: Sat 13 Jan 2007 4:51pm GMT

MACHINE HEAD will be releasing their new album, The Blackening, through Roadrunner Records this Spring, and among the various finishing touches being made, you can now view the final cover artwork online here.

MACHINE HEAD frontman Robert Flynn recently explained to TheGauntlet.com: "It's a metal carving from the 1500s. Back then they used a lot of crude metal carving images, almost as propaganda. It was kind of like scaring people about going to hell or whatever. A lot of it had to do with devils and death and stuff like that. They were eventually banned."
