Not that I know of. The two singers have both released solo albums this year, I do know. They headlined a day of Summer Sundae last year in pissing rain and pretty much everyone went to watch the Blockheads inside.

I have Gomez on a commercially produced MD. That said, I am not excited that they are back.

The only commercially produced MD I have is Blur by Blur. I used to think that my Dad was pretty cool because he was a big Gomez fan. Now I'm not so sure.

I need to have a giant piss every time I see the phrase "succession of drummers". Or maybe it's the beer.

In case you've missed it, the 17 Seconds blog has started a record label. Their first release is the new Aberfeldy single Claire/Talk Me Round (streamed on myspace).

Aberfeldy fans can find it at http://www.myspace.com/17secondsrecords

I just have. It's not bad. It's very much got the sound of the second album.

I liked how MTV issued a quote claiming it was due to the tireless nature of Rick Astley fans the world over, rather than the in no way increasingly tiresome RickRolling.

Sometimes I get a comment on a post I wrote on my blog by the artist the post was about, which is always fun. This morning though I'm completely amazed to find an actual comment by Trixie's Big Red Motorbike's Mel... some people are in my mind just legendary ghosts, and they somehow seem to not belong on the internet. Amazing.

Heehee!

I once got a comment from a band who thanked me for buying their new record after I had said something nice about it. Except that, erm, I hadn't bought it.

I think I can trump this - it turns out that I'm in the acknowledgements on Jeremy Warmsley's new album. It'd have been better had someone told me this between last week's release and my receiving it today, of course.

I might be the only person on here who thinks this but see if AC/DC don't add a Scottish date or two to their recently-announced tour I'll walk around for the next six months in a fit of murderous rage.

Did I ever tell you about the time I saw them in 1991? Ten miles away from the stage so I was, it sounded like them but it may have been a knitting machine for all I could see. 17 years I've been waiting, 17 long years...

it is apparently happening. the date they wanted at the SECC was unavailable due to some massive conference taking place there so they're just trying to juggle dates. apparently.

PEPSI MAX ANNOUNCE EXCITING MUSIC VENTURE ON MYSPACE

Pepsi Max today announced the line up of curators for its official launch of Pepsi Maxcast, its new music initiative that will make it easier for people to explore the best in new and live music.

This unique destination, which lives on MySpace, is aimed at 20-30 year olds and will act as an editor of choice to help people navigate the vast array of music available on the popular social network.

What makes Pepsi Maxcast so different is its collaboration with seven top curators, who are leading music artists and tastemakers. The initial line-up offering their regular picks, by genre, into new and live music includes: Carl Barat, Sam Sparro, Jodie Harsh, The Loose Cannons, Tinchy Stryder and Peyton. More exciting guest curators will be appearing on the site over the coming months.

Pepsi Maxcast will be full of great features, including an exclusive All Access Area, Video Profiles providing insights into each of the curators’ lives, Music Players showcasing their new music recommendations and a This Week area where fans can get the inside gossip and news from the artists. Further, users will be able to post their own gig flyers, recommend new music and vote for new talent to be included on the Maxcast Radar.

To see what it’s all about, visit http://www.myspace.com/pepsimaxcast" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;.

Sam Sparro, one of the curators involved, commented: “All the best music is on MySpace, but finding it is like a needle in a haystack. It’s great to be part of Pepsi Maxcast because it’s going to be the place to discover great music”

Bruno Gruwez, Pepsi UK Marketing Director said: “Pepsi Maxcast is there to help people discover new and live music. It’s a fully-fledged interactive platform that opens up the world of leading artists and tastemakers to the public. It’s a unique platform where people can engage with the best live music presented by our celebrity curators, and for bands to get their music featured.”
