Updates To Icky Thump Gets Leaked + Video

Posted by Molli Fire on Thursday, 7June07

UPDATE: ICKY THUMP IS NOW STREAMING. Go to the June 12th Icky Thump news on HearingTest for more info.

So, I recently reported (very briefly) that Jack White was pissed to find out that Icky Thump was leaked on a Chicago radio station. Finally, I have a bit more to add to that story.

Watch the official Icky Thump video while you read:

To recap, DJ Electra of Q101 in Chicago received a digital file of the entire album that is set to be released on June 19th. She in turn played the entire album on the air with absolutely no permission from either the White Stripes nor WMG. When Jack got wind of the news within mere hours of the album airing, he took time out of his busy tour schedule and called the station from Spain. He verbally let the people have it over the phone, but the case seems to end there. As yet, no legal action has been taken against the station nor the dj. I will keep my eye out for updates however, because Warner Music Group does not take kindly to piracy and will usually release the dogs (i.e. the RIAA) when they get offended. Someone did record the entire album off the radio and it is available somewhere on the web right now. I’d post a link but it would be useless because it will be shut down by the time you read this and another one will spring up in its place. Check back here for updates on how the story progresses. You can always type White Stripes into the searchbox in the right sidebar, and it will take you directly to all the stories about the band that are published on HearingTest. (There is also a link at the end of this post to all other WS stories).

In the meantime, here are the best/most relevant links available about this story:

Glen E Friedman Captures Fugazi For New Book

Posted by Molli Fire on Thursday, 7June07

Fugazi probably looks fantastic through the lens of glen E. friedman‘s camera. We’ll soon find out – when Keep Your Eyes Open is available to explore. 

Glen E Friedman Captures Fugazi - Keep Your Eyes Open

It’s a book of photographs of the legendary punk band by an artist who is well known for capturing the most exciting action on still film.  Whether he’s aiming at pioneer skaters Jay Adams or Tony Alva, or frenetic stage performers Minor Threat or Beastie Boys, Friedman’s camera has excellent perspective.  This man has shot it all, and has the talent to portray the raw energy of the live experience.  My esteem for both Fugazi and Friedman is in the upper atmosphere of esteem layers due to both going beyond what is necessary for their careers and truly caring about the audience’s experience of their medium.  It will be wonderful to see the large glossy pages of this upcoming coffee table tome.  I think I will have to add this to my wishlist!

The book will be officially released on the 3rd of September, 20 years on the day of the band’s first live show. (ISIS and Neurosis like to think they are veterans for being 10 years old, but 20 years and still touring, playing, and being super cool, that’s Fugazi…)

FUGAZI BOOK LINKS

Keep Your Eyes Open website
Burning Flags Press – You can catch up so much great gEfriedman memorabilia on the Burning Flags page including his other new photo books like RECOGNIZE with words by Peter Lamborn Wilson (aka Hakim Bey author of T.A.Z.).
Burning Flags Press even has a music$pace page where you can watch rare punk and protest videos, and see pages from the books.

Free Mix From Team Shadetek Feat. Tanya Stephens

Posted by Molli Fire on Wednesday, 6June07

MORE FIRE!!! Boh! This mix is hot! MORE FIRE, MORE BASS is by one of my favOrite producers, Matt Shadetek. I actually heard part of this mix when it originally aired on Mary Anne Hobbs’ show on BBC Radio 1 on March 16th. I was packing my bags to go snowboarding while the sounds coming out of my speakers were inspiring feelings of sailing down slopes of deep powder. Coz that’s what this mix is like, it’s deep and sludgey, with clean sweeps that sail over the heavy basslines. This mix clocks in at a mere 30 minutes of sonic rapture but contains a lot of original music by Shadetek and NYC neighbors 77Klash and Jah Dan. Don’t worry, I’m not teasing you with fond memories. Matt launched the mp3 on his blog today, where you can download it for yourself. I can even vouch for it being a pretty quick download, despite how clean it sounds. These boys know their bitrate technology and it was originally intended for radio play and streaming anyhow.

TRACKLIST

01. Can’t Breathe – Tanya Stephens (Matt Shadetek Remix) [Unreleased)
02. Untitled – Matt Shadetek (Unreleased)
03. Bumbaclat Badman – Chronik feat. Skepta, Wiley & Esco (Slew Dem Records)
04. Skynet Riddim – Matt Shadetek (Sound-Ink)
05. Walk It Out Remix – DJ Unk feat. Andre 3000 & Jim Jones (Koch Records)
06. Do It – Jon E Cash (Black Ops)
07. Go Home – Timeblind (Unreleased)
08. Gigantic Wings – Drop The Lime (Unreleased)
09. Vans – The Pack (Jive)
10. Reign Riddim – Matt Shadetek (Sound-Ink)
11. Reign – Team Shadetek feat. Skepta (Sound-Ink)
12. Gave You All My Dub – Matt Shadetek feat. Jahdan (Unreleased)
13. Separating – Team Shadetek feat. Jammer (Sound-Ink)
14. Cassava Riddim – Matt Shadetek (Unreleased)
15. She Told Me – Noble Society feat. 77Klash
16. Untitled – Timeblind (Unreleased)
17. Japan – Plastician (Terrorhythm)
18. Try Harder – Drop The Lime (Broklyn Beats)
19. Daylight – Team Shadetek (Sound-Ink)

Yep, all that in a seamless 30 minute mix (no breaks in between trax). Head over to Glaciers of Shade, the home of Team Shadetek.

If you like what you hear, please buy the latest release from Shadetek/77Klash/JahDan – the excellent Brooklyn Anthem featuring Courtney Melody from his classic “Bad Boy” hit. Released by Sound Ink and available on BLEEP. Team Shadetek also have a release on WARP Records called Burnerism among others.

Eski-Boy Goin Out With A Banger! Wiley’s New Video Is SMokin!

Posted by Molli Fire on Friday, 1June07

Lots of Eski-boy goodies today! First of all, check the video for “50/50” off the upcoming Playtime Is Over album:

50/50 Vid

Oh its just so UK dance! I love it!

The album gets dropped worldwide on June 4th, but you can get the (320kbps) mp3s of “50/50” and “Bow E3” from BLEEP right now. You will however have to wait to attend the album release party with Boy Better Know crew (JME, Skepta), Loefah and Illa Man all supporting the Grandfather of Grime! That will be at Cargo in London on a Thursday – June 21st. Thursday has always been my favorite day of the week. Nothing but good things happen on Thursdays. Wiley will be performing live, and for only 10 Quid you can’t afford to miss it!

If you want more Wiley, you can get your fix with the Independent Music Magazine today, he’s the adorable cover boy, same with RWD Mag, The Wire, Echoes. Next week he graces the cover of Plan B and One Week To Live. Big Smoke covers him at the end of the month. Whoo boy, good thing his face is so pleasant to look at. That’s a lot of music magazine covers to be staring out from!

Eski-boy Wiley On The Cover Of Independent Music Magazine

Independent said this about the upcoming album:

“Playtime is Over is so important, not just to him, but to the future legacy of grime, and what it might mean in 10 years time.. Brilliantly grime, fuelled with anthems and sing-alongs and deserves to go down as his greatest work to date.”

Playtime Is Over is released on June 4th by Big Dada. You can listen to the single “Bow E3” on their homepage.

Grandfather Of Grime- Wiley - Playtime Is Over

TRACKLIST FOR Playtime Is Over

01 50/50

03 Slippin’
04 Flyboy
05 Baby Girl

10 No Qualms
11 Johnny Was a Bad Boy
12 Nothing About Me
13 Come Lay With Me
14 Getalong Gang
15 Eski-Boy

Don’t think for a New York minute that this album is going to be released in digital format only. No, these are vinyl traditionalists. You can purchase the 2x LP, the black CD, or the mp3 bundle. Your choice. It’s here on the Big Dada page for Playtime Is Over along with a great bio.

He also had a short performance on Channel 4, which you can watch here.

Posted by Molli Fire on Friday, 1June07

Always at the forefront of revolution – the 30th anniversary of Bob Marley’s Exodus is being celebrated with the album’s release on the new music formats USB Memory Stick and Micro SD Memory Card. Marley has entered the Matrix. 4000 copies of the USB version in glorious red, green and gold include the entire album of music plus 3 video tracks recorded in June 1977 at the Rainbow Theatre in London during Marley’s exile in Britain.

Here is “Exodus” being performed live in full funky style with the whole band, the ladies, the love:

The Micro SD version would be even more limited – only 2000 copies. But that’s not all, the album will be released in ALL the old fashioned formats, except cassette tape, sorry. There will be a regular CD, a deluxe CD with a DVD of 12 live songs from the Rainbow Theatre shows, and a 12″ vinyl record packaged as an exact replica of the original issue in 1977.

Bob Marley - Exodus Gets ReIssued In New Digital Formats Plus Vinyl, CD

Tracklist

1. Natural Mystic
2. So Much Things To Say
3. Guiltiness
4. The Heathen
5. Exodus
6. Jamming
7. Waiting In Vain
8. Turn Your Lights Down Low
9. Three Little Birds
10. One Love/People Get Ready

BIG UPS ISLAND!!! That’s what I call respect.

Thanks to Uncut News for the info.

Tom Waits, Kronos Quartet, Dalai Lama On Live CD

Posted by Molli Fire on Friday, 1June07

On July 10th, the wonderful label/catalog known only as ANTI- will release to the public the recording of Healing the Divide: A Concert for Peace and Reconciliation which was hosted by the Lincoln Center in NYC on September 21, 2003. This concert was the grand finale on the Dalai Lama’s 2003 US tour and featured live performances by Tom Waits, Kronos Quartet, Greg Cohen, Philip Glass, Anoushka Shankar and more. In fact, here is the cd tracklist:

TRACKLIST FOR Healing The Divide:

01 Speech by His Holiness the Dalai Lama
02 The Gyoto Tantric Choir – “Invocation”
03 Anoushka Shankar – “Nivedan”
04 Nawang Khechong and R. Carlos Nakai – “Peace Chants”
05 Phillip Glass and Foday Musa Suso – “The Gambia”
06 Tom Waits and Kronos Quartet with Greg Cohen – “Way Down in the Hole”
07 Tom Waits and Kronos Quartet with Greg Cohen – “God’s Away on Business”
08 Tom Waits and Kronos Quartet with Greg Cohen – “Lost in the Harbor”
09 Tom Waits and Kronos Quartet with Greg Cohen – “Diamond in Your Mind”
Healing The Divide is a non-profit organization created in 2002 in NYC that according to wiki, “maintains an international focus on conflict resolution, as it works in four “program” areas: health, justice, peace, and education/culture.” According to HTD’s own website:

Healing the Divide was created to challenge existing, failed modes of thought and action and to foster the kind of revolutionary transformations needed to break the bonds of ignorance, intolerance and injustice.

According to the press release:

All of the artists, Anti- Records, and Healing the Divide are donating all their proceeds from sales to Healing the Divide’s Tibetan Health Initiative, a program that provides health insurance and medical care to impoverished Tibetan Buddhist monks and nuns living in refugee settlements. Each CD purchase provides one year of health insurance.

Tom Waits is quoted in the release as describing his involvement with the concert thus:

I’m no fool. It’s a spiritual insurance policy. Hell, at my age, the next group I put together, everyone may be playing a harp. All kidding aside, I owed His Holiness a favor. He did all my papers in school.

The cd will be available in stores and by download from iTunes starting on July 10th, and a DVD of the concert is also in the works according to some sources.

Sunn O))) New Release + Tour W/ Wolf Eyes, Wolves in the Throneroom, Merzbow

Posted by Molli Fire on Wednesday, 30May07

Sunn O))) has announced more tour dates on their artist page at Southern Lord Records! I guess the Pacific Rim and Roadburn festival were good to them, because after they play the Sonar Festival in Barcelona, they will be playing one show in the UK and then heading home to the US for some west coast shows with label mates and mentors, Earth.

Dang I wish I could have been at that Roadburn, but I would be happy to catch their performance in Belgium with Wolf Eyes. One of my very favorite Sunn O))) performances ever was with Wolf Eyes at the Lobot in Oakland. Both bands have been a huge musical influence on me. My bandmate in T113 grew up in Ann Arbor and was friends with Nate of Wolf Eyes, thus sharing some of the same musical influences and ideas. My mate first introduced me to Wolf Eyes’ brilliant chaotic noise and I was hooked. I think an ideal show for our band T113 would be with Sunn O))), Wolf Eyes and Merzbow in Japan (where they truly appreciate noise as an artform). This festival in Belgium comes awfully close! Who wants to fly T113 out to the Dour Festival to perform as well?

Also on this upcoming tour, Sunn O))) will playing shows with Wolves in the Throneroom, whom I have also mentioned as a fantastic metal band. If you get the chance, definitely catch them live. They are TIGHT, and play furiously passionate metal. T113 has played shows with them, and Wolves has honored us on a few occasions by playing on our soundsystem, including at the Autonomous Mutant Festival. In fact one of my fave live performances as T113 was with Wolves in the Throneroom at Overload in Oakland. My mic wasn’t working, but my mate and I played a killer set that included a doom metal cover of Ledbelly’s “In The Pines”. The guys of Wolves in the Throneroom are such down to earth and sweet people in addition to playing stellar, dark music. Not theatrical, like Sunn O))) but intense nonetheless.

Tour

Jun 16, 2007 Sonar Festival Barcelona
Jun 18, 2007 Meltdown Festival London, UK w/Chrome Hoof
Jul 2, 2007 Casbah San Diego, CA Earth, Weedeater & Wolves in the Throne Room

Sunn O))) - Oracle Cover Art

Sunn O))) has also announced that they will be releasing a 12″ vinyl record called Oracle in the US this summer. The 2 singles that would comprise the 2 sides of the record are:
1. “Belülrol Pusztít” – 16:01
2. “Orakulum” – 18:37

The jackhammer on the A side is provided by Joe Preston (Thrones).
It will be accompanied by a bonus disc:

“Helio)))sophist” – 48:17

You should be able to acquire your copy at any of the US shows. Southern Lord has not yet announced whether they will carry it in the online store, so expect a super limited edition.
