The Pixies will be back on the road for a summer tour. They'll spend the month of July touring Europe, but it doesn't look like they're going to do any dates in the U.S. Meanwhile, Frank Black is getting ready to release his new double cd, Fastman/Raiderman on June 20th.
If you like Ride, this is a really good compilation to get. It's the greatest hits double cd that they released back in 2002. These days, Mark Gardener (ex-singer of Ride) is getting ready to release his debut solo cd, These Beautiful Ghosts. You can check out his official website, www.markgardener.com
but don't check out this one with the different spelling, www.markgardiner.com, since that is someone totally different.
Turns out the previous report regarding the Roxy Music reunion is WRONG. Eno is not going to be taking part in the reunion. Enoweb says that the journalists (and the official Roxy Music website that also reported that Eno would be back in the fold) had it wrong and that it was wishful thinking on their part. Eno says he will have no involvement with Roxy's new cd or upcoming tour.

Trent Reznor and some of the ex-members of Nine Inch Nails have been feuding on the net. You can catch a blurbs of the interview by ex-drummer Jerome Dillon that started it all, plus subsequent barbs here.

Courtney Love is obviously so incredibly broke that she will resort to almost anything to make some cash. The National Entertainment Collectibles Association has struck a deal with Love to make a Kurt Cobain action figure. The action figure features the same look Kurt was sporting in the Smells Like Teen Spirit video--striped shirt, blue guitar and it even has a gymfloor as a base for the figure. You can check it out the full story here. And here's a picture of the action figure. The Kurt Cobain action figure will hit stores in June.

NIN & Bauhaus will take over DTE on June 25th. There's an internet presale scheduled for March 29th, but that's for fanclub members only. The rest of the tickets will go on sale to the public on April 1st. Get your tickets early, you DO NOT want to miss this fine show!

Roxy Music is gearing up for a reunion! And to make it even sweeter, Brian Eno has agreed to take part. Original members Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera, Paul Thomson and yes, Brian Eno will all be together again for the first time since 1973. Roxy reunited a couple of years ago, but Eno was too busy in the studio working as a producer to be able to take part. This time around Eno has cleared his schedule and is working with the other members of the band on a new Roxy cd. They will do some festival dates, but it is unclear whether there will be a full-scale tour of North America.

A Pixies documentary is premiering today at the South By Southwest Music Fesival in Austin, Texas. LoudQuietLoud will also be shown 2 other days this week at the festival. The film follows the band around while they were on the road for their 2004 reunion tour. The film's director, Steven Cantor revealed in an interview with Billboard magazine that the bandmembers pretty much kept to themselves while on the road, and spent most of their time in their separate hotel rooms reading. Cantor told Billboard, "I feel like 75% of the reason for the reunion was for money, but the other 25% was because of the fact that they're legends." The documentary is not currently scheduled for a theatrical release.

Oh, and there will be another Pixies tour this summer. Dates haven't been released yet, so stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Frank Black is gearing up to release a new solo cd. Fastman/Raiderman is a double disc set that features 27 songs. Look for it to hit stores on June 20th.
Morrissey is getting ready to drop his 8th solo cd, Ringleader of the Tormentors, on April 4th. Apparently enterprising fans decided the cat needed to be let out of the bag sooner than the official release date, so the cd has been leaked on the net. The new cd actually has copy protection software on it, but the promotional copies don't contain that software so apparently it is easy to rip the cd to the mp3 format. (Uh, don't look at me. It wasn't me. Honest.) Anyway, the new Moz cd contains 12 new songs and the best song title of all is "Life Is A Pig Sty." Leave it to Morrissey.
