King’s X drummer Jerry Gaskill suffered heart attack {currently recovering / US Tour canceled}

26th Feb 12 (Sun) 6 comments

Updated as health news comes in (see below)…

Earlier this morning (2/26/12), news surfaced on Facebook that King’s X drummer Jerry Gaskill suffered a heart attack and is currently in the ICU.  Keep him in your thoughts and hope he gets stellar medical supervision & help!

Obviously, no word on how this will impact the upcoming KX tour (that was to kick off at the end of March), but (tour canceled – see below) I know any KX fan would want him to get better versus over-exerting himself on the road!  His health is way more important, but we hope he’s healthy to hit the road after some rest & recovery.

From bassist/singer dUg Pinnick said on FB: “He was operated on and is in stable condition at the hospital. Were all waiting for more info.”  Then posted this on twitter…

Jerry’s drumtech Chris ‘JRAB’ Thomas has a post in this blog’s comments section.  Also stay tuned to www.kingsxrocks.com for add’l updates.

In light of Jerry‘s sudden hospitalization, all previously announced North American tour dates for KING’S X have been cancelled. Jerry will be taking the time to recover back to full health so that he can hopefully join the band behind the drums at some point in the future.

New Ben Folds Five song “Tell Me What I Did”

30th Aug 11 (Tue) 2 comments

Another new streaming song from Ben Folds Five from the upcoming The Best Imitation of Myself retrospective… “Tell Me What I Did” is now streaming over on Stereogum.  Check the blog below for the first new BFF song, “House.”  One more new BFF song is out there, “Stumblin’ Home Winter Blues” will likely show up soon on some other music blog (Pitchfork? Spin?)…

New Ben Folds Five song "House" Ben Folds Five will go down in history as one of the bands that actually looked like they were having fun on stage.  When they broke-up in the Fall of 2000, a bit of happiness died.  Ben went on to do a lot of solo work (some Five-ish, some not), bassist Robert has stayed active in the NC music scene, and drummer Darren has put out a few gorgeous records with his band Hotel Lights (where he sings and plays guitar).  In fact, I just found out that … Read More

new Sunny Day Real Estate album

10th Mar 10 (Wed) 1 comment

As reported on Paste

As if fans weren’t excited enough about Sunny Day Real Estate reuniting, reissuing two albums (1994’s Diary and 1995’s LP2) and touring (review of Portland’s Sept 2009 SDRE show), there are now reports that the band may be recording a new album.

This afternoon, Marco Williams—a radio DJ at KEXP 90.3—tweeted, “Great news today. Just got an email from Nate from Sunny Day Real Estate/Foo Fighters… SDRE is recording A NEW RECORD IN MAY!!”

Talk of a new album began after the band performed a new song during their reunion tour, so Williams’ declaration adds more validity to those rumors. If this new album comes to fruition, it will be the band’s first release of new material since 2000.

So, I got an email simply titled “jonsi.com” and had a graphic that went to a simple website…

You can sign up for an email list and if you click the “J” on the website, it changes and plays a cute little tune.  I think this mean Jonsi Birgisson from Sigur Rós has something in the hopper…

yay!

the Sigur Rós announcement (27 May 08)

27th May 08 (Tue) 2 comments

OK, well, the Sigur Rós announcement isn’t that the album is called ñækíð εή а ŧræé… it’s called Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust (eh, I was close, huh?), and it’ll be out June 24th in the U.S.  The album name means “With a buzz in our ears we play endlessly.”  Seriously.  Go HERE for more info on the album. Pre-ordering begins June 2nd from sigurros.com.

So, MSIEVSE would be the shorthand for the album? Quality.  Or maybe just Medsud

Tracklist:

2. Inní mér syngur vitleysingur 8. Illgresi
3. Góðan daginn 9. Fljótavík
