Every day I read and learn all kinds of new musical information. I've decided to collect these little pieces in a semi-daily forum so you can find a bunch of musical news in one place.
I'll also be listing "today's mail," the new albums and other things I get in the mail, and "things I think would make good band names," an ongoing list of... well, it's pretty self-explanatory.
One problem. I'd like to keep this as a standard feature and would like to come up with a title for these regular posts. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Help me out?
• Sub Pop will reissue Nirvana's "Bleach."
• Weezer has another new song out: "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To". Spin.com reviewed it.
• Kiss is releasing its new album through Wal-Mart.
• The Smashing Pumpkins picked a new drummer. He's only 19.
• Pitchfork is releasing its Top 500 tracks of the decade. Here's 500-201 and 200-101. The rest will be released tomorrow through Friday.
• The Flaming Lips debuted some new songs during last night's performance.
Today's mail: Today, I received a copy of Seth James' "That Kind of Man." Never heard of the guy.
Things I think could make good band names: Sorry About Strasburg (thanks to my friend Dane).
