A quick one while you’re away, Art Car Boot Fairs, bits of vinyl and more have been gripping us for the last week or so, last night Deathgrips apparently let loose some things they had up their sleeves. New Deathgrips, what better way to clear out the clutter and start a fresh week
Big thanks to all who came along to the Art Car Boot Fair yesterday by the way, always a highlight of the year (and a little bit frantic as well as a touch stressful), more later possible . Things are a little scrambles this morning but hey, here comes some things for you to unscramble while we unscramble our minds and make some scrambled eggs and clear up the mess we made while getting things out yesterday. The word still is create around here…
Here’s what they, DeathGrips, said in a rather low key way last night on their own website Third Worlds, it goes it goes it goes…..
“this is “niggas on the moon”, featuring björk on all 8 tracks. it is the first installment of our new double album, “the powers that b”, due out later this year on Harvest/Third Worlds Records. the second disc is titled “jenny death”. peace & love have a sad cum bb
Here’s more link action and the whole right new tracks…..
MEANWHILE, IN THE COURT OF….
King Crimson have confirmed their first live shows since Robert Fripp announced he was ending his self-imposed semi-retirement last year, the prog rock press report….
“He’d suspended his career as a live performer after a legal battle with a former record label spiralled out of control. But it was finally resolved in 2013 – and Fripp announced he’d formed an eighth Crimson lineup featuring drummers Gavin Harrison, Bill Reiflin and Pat Mastelotto alongside bassist Tony Levin, saxophonist Mel Collins and Jakko Jakszyk on guitar. The band started rehearsals this week, and Fripp reports: “Reporting good days – personally I had lots fun. Two principles articulated: one, enjoying our playing together is encouraged; two, if you don’t wish to play a part, give it to someone else. There’s enough of them!” The US shows are entitled _The Elements: Past, Present And Future _with tickets on sale on Friday. More dates could be confirmed – although Fripp warned last year the band were unlikely to tour ‘in the conventional sense.’ ”

No news of dates over here but they did say when the new line up was announced early this year that the focus would be on the USA first….
And while we’re talking US dates (from over here in our East London bunker), Gregory Jacobsen, he of Lovely Little Girls said
“I’m gonna spam the f**k out of this. We’re doing some east coast dates…all nine of us…YOU WILL SEE US. Here’s a little video trailer for the tour that everyone will love…because everyone in this band is very good looking, especially our drummer. There’s a new song contained within the video. Ya know, the one about “fluid imbibing long snout, ballooning of the upper two thirds”.
Meanwhile over here, seagulls, eagles, EAGULLS playing over there.
