The White Stripes' tour documentary, Under Great White Northern Lights premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last week. Jack White himself showed up for a special question and answer session at the festival and treated fans to, well, a Kanye moment.



The film was shot during the band's unique 2007 tour--shows took place in non-conventional venues including a YMCA, bowling alley, & hospital, and eventually ended with a one-note show in Newfoundland.

Here's the video to the first single from Bernard Sumner's new project Bad Lieutenant.
New music from Smashing Pumpkins is on the way for free! Billy Corgan goes on to sort of confirm the information in the article* on the band's official website:

I did a small interview via email with Paste magazine today. I thought the article itself was very positive, but unfortunately the information in it is somewhat misleading about the release schedule of 'Teargarden by Kaleidyscope'.

I have no plans to release 44 songs by the spring of 2010. Because my intention is to only put out music of the highest caliber, I will be only be recording about 4 songs at a time and then releasing them one by one shortly after their completion. 'Teargarden by Kaleidyscope' will be a new kind of album, an album you can hear as its being made. That process will unfold over the next few years.

*the linked version of the Paste article has been edited to fix the information Corgan found misleading

The Coldplay/Joe Satriani lawsuit has been "dismissed" by a British court. Apparently the parties have reached some sort of (undisclosed) settlement. Earlier in the year Satrini filed suit against Coldplay claiming the song "Viva La Vida" was a ripoff of Satriani's 2004 song, "If I Could Fly."
