She Wants Revenge Week: First, Love
antiMusic reports: She Wants Revenge recently returned with their sophomore CD This Is Forever. to celebrate the release and to give you a little more insight into the songs we asked Adam Bravin to pick his five favorite tracks from the duo's latest and tell us a bit about each song. Here is Adam with today's song:

First, Love - I hadn't made a hip hop track for a while and was fiending to. This track started off just being something for me to get my head in a different place, but once I added the piano to it, it became very clear to us that this had potential to be the opening track for the album, which is exactly what it became.

Flea's $4.8 million home "burnt to a crisp" according to a text message the bassist sent out. His was one of the 49 homes lost in the area in the blaze as of 5:00 PM PST Sunday night.

"So far 4,650 acres burned in the fire which has been determined to have been caused by humans. Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Rick Dominguez says that the fire broke out Saturday morning along a dirt road off a paved highway, and that investigators are still deciding if it was started intentionally," according to Salem-News.com.

The LA Times report: Michael Balzary, a.k.a. Flea, had purchased a home for more than $10 million in Malibu last year, but the house that burned was another he owned in the hills west of Corral Canyon. That French country-style home is listed for sale for $4.8 million on the website of real estate firm Pritchett-Rapf & Associates. - more on this story

Beatle Vs Jacko
Contact Music reports: Sir Paul McCartney once fell out with Michael Jackson because he refused to give him a pay raise. The pair became close friends after recording a string of hit duets in the 1980s but fell out when Jackson - who purchased The Beatles' catalogue of songs Northern Songs in 1985 - refused to increase the songwriter's royalty rates.

But MCCartney eventually realised he was financially sound so let go of his grudge against Jackson. He says, "(Michael Jackson) was like a family friend. Bite to eat, hang out and all of that. We fell out once he got Northern Songs.

"I put it to him and said, 'Look you are now historically placed to really give the Lennon/MCCartney writing duo their just desserts. They've been working for this company 30 years, they've never had a rise.' "I must have put it to him about three times. And I just never heard back.
- Maybe Jacko heard the lyrics as pay pay pay what you want? more on this story

My Bloody Valentine To Self Release Album Digitally
Gigwise reports: My Bloody Valentine are the latest act to be contemplating a "Radiohead style" download release of their new album. The band are currently working on their first long player since 1991's 'Loveless' and it seems they've been inspired by Thom Yorke and co.

Their manager Vinita Joshi told Billboard: "At the moment, all I can say is that Kevin (Shields) is getting the band back together and they will go into the studio next month to work on the new record.

"The plan is that they will release the album themselves via the Internet, but there will also probably be a vinyl release." However, she added that MBV are unlikely to follow Radio head's 'pay what you like' stance for the download. - more on this story
