SOLO RECORD FROM SCOTT REEDER SCOTT REEDER'S solo record TUNNELVISION BRILLIANCE will be released on Tuesday, January 24th (that's TODAY). Great Reed-O music and SpiralEyes artwork. There's a lot more info on Scott's website www.scottreeder.com, which will provide you with several links for samples, reviews, etc. Also check out www.butcherband.com. TunnelVision Brilliance is a TRUE solo record (with Scott doing it all, a rarity these days) and all of us wish him the best of luck!
TOOL PROMO TOUR As it now stands, in a few weeks (mid-February) the members of the band (except for Adam) and their manager will be traveling to parts of Europe, England, Japan and Australia on a bit of a promo tour, meaning that they will be meeting with record company people and doing various interviews with the press in order to promote their new record and upcoming tours. Although any press releases are usually timed to coincide with the release of the record, there will undoubtedly be leaks, so those of you who scour the internet should be on the lookout around this time. As the others field questions and deal with promo issues abroad, Adam will remain in Los Angeles to direct the new Tool video.
David Nadelle and Amy Phillips report: Hey, remember grunge? Silly question. Of course you do. In fact, you're probably trying to forget it. Well, tough luck, because the Atlanta-based Livewire Recordings is set to release Sleepless in Seattle: The Birth of Grunge on February 7, featuring twenty bands that laid the groundwork for the mainstream breakthroughs of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and the like. Alas, they also laid the groundwork for Creed and Nickelback.
Sleepless in Seattle (god, could they really not come up with a better name?) includes semi-popular cult bands (Screaming Trees, the Melvins), long-thriving success stories (Mudhoney, Supersuckers), and a bunch of groups that incubated future stars (Blackouts members joined Ministry and Nine Inch Nails, Green River peeps became Pearl Jam, Treepeople's Doug Martsch is the frontman for Built to Spill, etc.)
(Babes in Toyland are also on the comp, even though they were from Minneapolis, not Seattle. But we're not complaining about that. We are, however, complaining that Emerald City metal gods Queensrÿche were left out in the rain. Even though they have no real connection to the bands on this collection or to grunge in general, they do have a wikked ÿ in their name. See? Queensrÿche.)
Accompanying the music is a booklet detailing the mid-80s/early-90s rise of the Pacific Northwest scene by Seattle music historian Clark Humphrey. No word yet if it will also include stereotypically hilarious cartoons depicting couples dumpster-diving in plaid flannels and baby doll dresses, but one can dare to dream.
Smells like nostalgia:
01 Blackouts - "Happy Hunting Ground" 02 Mr. Epp & the Calculations - "Mohawk Man" 03 U-Men - "Solid Action" 04 Green River - "Come on Down" 05 The Melvins - "Grinding Process" 06 Malfunkshun - "With Yo' Heart (Not Yo' Hands)" 07 Screaming Trees - "Orange Airplane" 08 Mudhoney - "In 'n' out of Grace" 09 Babes in Toyland - "He's My Thing" 10 Tad - "Giant Killer" 11 Coffin Break - "Crawl" 12 Treepeople - "Guilt Regret Embarrassment" 13 Skin Yard - "Hallowed Ground" 14 Gruntruck - "Tribe" 15 The Gits - "Second Skin" 16 Love Battery - "Half Past You" 17 Hammerbox - "Trip" 18 Seaweed - "Losing Skin" 19 7 Year Bitch -"The Scratch" 20 Supersuckers - "Creepy Jackalope Eye"
In other grunge revival news, Billboard reported last month that an onslaught of Tad-related material is due next year. In addition to a DVD documentary and CD of unreleased songs, frontman Tad Doyle is working on solo projects and bassist Kurt Danielson is writing a book. It's about coffee, heroin, rain, Singles, and wearing boxers on your head. Kidding!
Launch Radio Networks reports: AUDIOSLAVE will release its third album this June, a spokesperson for the band's label has told Launch. An exact release date, title and track listing are not available yet, although it is known that the band began working on new music as early as last summer, with work picking up again shortly after the Christmas and New Year holidays. Although there was a two-and-a-half year gap between the band's self-titled 2002 debut and its 2005 sophomore effort, "Out Of Exile", the new disc will arrive just over a year since "Out Of Exile"'s release last May.
AUDIOSLAVE plans to get back on the road sometime in early 2006, according to recent postings at the band's official web site. Lead singer Chris Cornell has been in the news recently for suing his ex-wife and SOUNDGARDEN manager Susan Silver, claiming she overstepped her professional boundaries and also conspired to keep money and personal property from him.
AUDIOSLAVE's single, "Doesn't Remind Me", has been nominated for a Grammy in the category of Hard Rock Performance.
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE's Josh Homme, MASTERS OF REALITY mainman Chris Goss and THE CULT lead singer Ian Astbury are among the guest musicians appearing on the third studio album from James Lavelle's UNKLE project, which is presently being mixed in London and expected for a summer release.
Astbury has recorded vocals for three songs. "I have a great admiration for James Lavelle as an artist," he told Billboard.com. Astbury also raved about the contribution from Los Angeles rock act AUTOLUX: "Their track is amazing," he said.
The new effort is the follow-up to 2003's "Never, Never, Land", which reached No. 6 on Billboard's Top Electronic Albums chart.
A video clip of the surviving members of ALICE IN CHAINS performing their classsic track "Rooster" with the help of TOOL vocalist Maynard Keenan, DAMAGEPLAN singer Patrick Lachman and HEART frontwoman Ann Wilson at a benefit for tsunami relief on February 18, 2005 in Seattle, Washington has been posted online at this location.
The benefit concert marked the first joint performance by ALICE IN CHAINS members Jerry Cantrell (guitar), Mike Inez (bass), and Sean Kinney (drums) since 1996. ALICE IN CHAINS ended in 2002 with the death of lead singer Layne Staley.
As previously reported, Cantrell, Inez and Kinney will be joined by COMES WITH THE FALL vocalist/guitarist (and member of Cantrell's touring band) William DuVall at the taping of an episode of VH1 Classic's "Decades Rock Live!", a tribute to HEART that will take place March 10 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City.
