Oasis - New Video for Old Song

Posted By: Chris | Posted: Thu 26 Oct 2006 4:58pm GMT

Oasis have revealed the stunning video for ‘The Masterplan’, the second video to be taken from their ‘collectors’ EP - released on November 13th. The EP features ‘The Masterplan’ and another one of their classic B Sides and widely regarded as ‘the greatest single that never was’, ‘Acquiesce’.

The Stop The Clocks EP is a preview from the first ever Oasis ‘Best Of’, released on 20th November.

‘The Masterplan’ video was directed by Ben and Greg, who first found fame with Soho Rushes Award nominated short for The Streets “When You Wasn’t Famous” (Prof Green remix) this year. This animated film sees Oasis transported into a stunning world based entirely on the paintings of legendary northern artist L.S Lowry, including subtle modern day twists and detailing. The video was made with the Lowry estate’s blessing and is a faithful representation of the artist’s world of industrial Salford in the post war years.

See the video online in the following formats: Real High | Real Medium | Real Low

Posted By: Chris | Posted: Thu 26 Oct 2006 4:58pm GMT

The Kooks' singer Luke Pritchard has spoken out on the illness that forced the band to postpone their recent UK tour.

"The specialist said that if I carried on singing, the tonsillitis would keep coming back. I would have got something called 'chronic tonsillitis' where you have to have your tonsils out. If you have them out, it changes the sound of your voice."

"It's been so frustrating, especially when we turned up at Brighton, our hometown. I felt so bad for all the people who'd bought tickets."

Smashing Pumpkins Discuss New Album

Posted By: Chris | Posted: Tue 24 Oct 2006 1:14pm GMT

Smashing Pumpkins have spoken out on their comeback album which they are currently writing.

On the band's MySpace page, drummer Jimmy Chamberlin has spoken about the progress of the record:

"Great things are on track for the future. As some of you know we are indeed creating music again. Music that comes from a place so pure it will burn the lies off the very souls of those who try to discount it.

"We have arrived at a place in our lives where truth and honesty prevail and we are creating from that place.

"Working with RTB was not only an honour but also one of the best musical experiences we have ever had," he explained. "We are currently working with Terry Date (Pantera, Soundgarden) and that is going great as well.

"The universe has a way of letting you know that things are right by introducing people like RTB and Terry into the fold. It's all part of one big cosmic journey, in so that everyone reading this is hitching their silver chord to the Great Pumpkin Space Train! Hope this helps clear some things up for you."

Maynard James Keenen - New Website

Posted By: Chris | Posted: Mon 16 Oct 2006 1:46pm GMT

Tool/A Perfect Circle vocalist Maynard James Keenan has launched a new website for his side project / merchandising line.

The Puscifer website can be seen at www.puscifer.com.

Commenting on the project, Maynard said, "...I'm working on a few more pieces with a few different humans. It will be quite some time before I get anywhere with them. One track with Lustmord, possibly one with Timmy C [Audioslave, Rage Against The Machine], Brad Wilk [Audioslave, Rage Against The Machine], and Johnny Polonsky. Just ran into Tim Alexander [Primus] and he sounds like he's interested in doing a track as well. I've approached Evil Joe B to produce and engineer once i have enough of a track in place, and may approach Botrill or Mulder for one of the others. In the meantime Matt Mitchell, our guitar tech, is engineering while we're on the road. One bit at a time."
