C'mon feel the Lemonheads!

Today I got to work to some rather good news. The Lemonheads gig at the Shepherds Bush Empire has had an extra date added. Their 15 September date sold out before I'd even heard about it. Today I find out that they've added the 14th as well.

As part of the All Tomorrow's Parties series of "Don't Look Back" concerts, Evan Dando and co-horts are performing the It's A Shame About Ray album in it's 33 minute entirety. How cool is that? Very very cool.

I came to the Lemonheads late, too late to ever see them live in their heyday, so this opportunity has just put me on cloud nine.

Mozza label-less again

Morrissey seems to be labelless again.

According to rumours, he copped a strop when Sanctuary released a press statement saying he'd play this weekend's Isle of Wight festival. He won't, and apparently he won't be releasing anything else on Sanctuary either.

According to various sites, he's busy working on a new album and hasn't sacked his drummer. Of course, he's never welcome back to the Isle of Wight festival either.

For those counting, this makes five record labels for his last five albums, so I guess no one could be really surprised at this news.
