VOTD: Sade & her band... I want to join!

While I am certainly more than pleased with the title track on Sade's first album in a decade, "Soldier Of Love", which has been on heavy rotation with me since it was in my hands in November... I am writing today as I declare that "instead of running away with the circus, I would choose her band, Sweetback.

Watch how much fun they have... they are silly, amazing musicians, know how to have fun and they get the job done and it is well done, for sure!

Btw, if you have NOT seen the video for "Soldier Of Love", here it is in all of its dark, militaristic, near industrial triphop exquisiteness. It is more of a Massive Attack tune than nearly any of the songs on the latest Massive Attack album. Enjoy!

I had to play it again.... I love this tune! I am not sure how many years it has been since I have played a tune so often... but perhaps has the rough estimate. (well, often I am listening to music away from the computer)

Helen Folasade Adu is fantastic and I have enjoyed nearly all of the songs on the Soldier Of Love album. You may want to grab it today!

From my list of most anticipated albums of 2010, these are 10 songs to enjoy for years to follow until her next release! Let's hope it is not another decade!

Lastly, I am working with Boom Chick Boom for their comedy sketch show this evening at Theatre Asylum. 9pm, just west of Vine, on the south side of Santa Monica Blvd.

Tomorrow night is my FREE party, Absinthe & Magic Thursdays, at Kung Pao Kitty. Join me early for dinner or arrive a lil later for $3 drink specials and more!

Friday, David J. (Bauhaus, Love And Rockets) is djing at Kung Pao Kitty.

Saturday, I am djing again at Kung Pao Kitty and possibly singing and playing guitar too, want to join me?

Note: the new Red Light District single is a cover of a Sade song that we recorded a few years ago.

VOTD: Alan Wilder joins Martin Gore in Depeche Mode!!!

It is no secret that I have an affinity for the music of Martin Gore, particularly his Depeche Mode songs that were orchestrated by the handy work or Alan Wilder.

It was nearly two decades ago when they last worked together on "Songs of Faith & Devotion. Alan left the band after their extensive two year world tour. It was a sad surprise for any fan of the band and his role in the Depeche Mode music machine would be noticed in the subsequent album releases.

Last week, Alan joined Martin on stage for the first time since at their performance at the Royal Albert Hall for the Teenage Cancer Trust charity series, which brings amazing bands to perform each year, raising money and awareness regarding children and young adults with cancer. This year performers include Them Crooked Vultures, The Specials, Noel Fielding, The Who, The Horrors & Suede.

Here is Alan Wilder & Martin Gore performing their soundcheck of "Somebody" together!

Below is a short overview of the show with succinct dialogue from both Martin & Alan.

Here is video from the performance!!!!

Bonus video: "One Caress" with strings!

via SlicingEyeBalls blog, which has a slew of footage from this performance posted

Have a great day and enjoy LOST this evening!

Droid 2.1 Android this week

As you may have heard yesterday via Motorola's announcements on the web, including their FaceCraque page, they will begin rolling out the updated 2.1 Android operating system to their phones over the air.

The updates will include everything which is on the Nexus's 2.1 OS apart from the LIVE (animated) wallpaper and the new launcher, however, there are ROMS that work for Droid already to do this.

I am awaiting Flash 10.1 for the phone (check the official video for this) and more multi-touch apps. So far, there are browsers such as Dolphin, Google Maps and music apps.

VOTD: The Clash meets Gorillaz

I became a fan of The Clash at an early age due to having MTV at the beginning of the 80s and getting into videos for Radio Clash, Rock The Casbah and Should I Stay Or Should I Go. The combination of various genres was and still is extremely exciting to me.

Fast Fwd to nearly ten years ago. Damon Albarn of Blur, along with Tank Girl comic Book artist, Jamie Hewlett, created Gorillaz, featuring a host of collaborators. It began in 98 with a full album release in 2001. Trip Hop, Pop, Electro, hip hop, funk, rock, etc... an audio stew of sounds.

Among the albums to which I have been awaiting of 2010, is the early March release of Plastic Beach, the third album from Gorillaz. This album features a collaboration featuing both Mick Jones & Paul Simonon, 2/3 of The Clash!!!

Below is a 30 second clip of them in the studio. Enjoy!!!
