Silly News: Elvis Teddy Killed
BBC reports: A £40,000 teddy which used to belong to Elvis Presley was among scores of toy bears destroyed when a dog meant to guard them went on the rampage. 

Dobermann Barney was looking after the rare Steiff bear, named Mabel, which had been loaned for an exhibition at Wookey Hole Caves near Wells, Somerset.

The dog ripped the head off the bear and attacked scores of other teddies. Barney's owner could only suggest that the bear had a rogue scent on it - or that Barney had become jealous of it. - Click Here for the Full Story

Got G.Love?
PR reports: Tart, Tangy, Smooth, and oh so lip-smacking Sweet! Aaah yes, time to praise the almighty summer sippin' thirst quencher, being served straight up G. Love style, ice cool and always refreshing. On his second release for Brushfire Records, the Philly boy offers up Lemonade, a series of soul drenched tracks pouring out blues infused hip-hop, which people have been trying to label for years. The best advice….don't try to tame it or claim it; it's simply his sonic trademark, instantly recognizable and addictively delicious. Seven albums, thirteen years, and a million worldwide units later, Lemonade is the most cohesive and rewarding album Garrett Dutton - a.k.a. G. Love has ever delivered. Check out Banger feat Blackalicious at the full story link and pick up the CD in stores this week.

Who Doesn't Love Virgins?
PR reports: The instrument swapping indie rock trio Gliss returns to the U.S. with their debut full-length album inspired by their time on the road with Billy Corgan, Editors and more. After putting the finishing touches on their debut full- length album, Love The Virgins, Gliss has decided to push back the release date to October 24, 2006

The band has enjoyed great success in LA for some time, but the new tracks have introduced a new side of the band. The fuzzed up riffs and hypnotic vocals that defined the band's previous releases remain, but Gliss kicks it up a notch, moving past the trance-like electronic elements for a more aggressive sound that is more fitting for the arenas they have been playing in.- Click Here for the Full Story
