Macca's Fireman Project Finds Its Voice
antiMusic reports: We told you a little about this yesterday but here is the official word: The Fireman has returned after a ten-year break with something to sing about. Electric Arguments, the brand new third studio album from the mysterious duo--out in the U.S. November 18 on MPL/ATO--is their first release to feature vocals.

"Ambient dreams in rainbow arches describe the circles of The Fireman", is how the duo described their music in a rare interview around the release of their last album 'Rushes' in 1998. Their first album 'Strawberries Oceans Ships Forest', released in 1993, was a solid ambient dance album heavy on electronics. Around this time the identity of The Fireman was unknown until the press exposed the duo as none other than Paul McCartney and Youth. The now defunct music bible Melody Maker heaped praise on the project, "Paul McCartney has discovered dance music - the results are staggeringly brilliant. They (The Fireman) take a melody and, with dexterous genre-hopping through ambient, trance and house, evolve a number of breathtaking variations."

Last year The Fireman returned to work again to start work on what would become Electric Arguments, ultimately finding thirteen days and recording a song on each of those days over the course of a little more than a year. The results this time are entirely different from any previous Fireman release. - more on this story

Hall and Oates Live CD and DVD Coming
PR reports: Daryl Hall and John Oates took the stage at the legendary Troubadour for the first time since playing their earliest Los Angeles shows there 35 years before. The best performances from this much anticipated two-night concert, which included hits such as "Maneater," "Private Eyes," "Rich Girl," "Sara Smile" and "Kiss On My List," will be made available in three formats DVD, Blu-Ray, and a 1-DVD/2-CD combo, via Shout! Factory on November 25.

"John and I have a lot of great memories associated with performing at the Troubadour, since it was our first show in LA," said Daryl. "It's like going back to where it all began for us. We've always had an enthusiastic following in Los Angeles, and this is a chance for our fans to see us up close and personal in an intimate setting."

Beyond the classic hits, the sold-out shows featured rarely performed fan favorites and deep album cuts, as well as Daryl Hall solo material, with the duo backed by a band comprised of longtime member T-Bone Wolk on guitar and vocals, Mike Braun on drums, Charles DeChant on sax, keys and vocals, Eliot Lewis on keys and vocals, Zev Katz on bass, and Everett Bradley on percussion and vocals.

Amid Financial Crisis Senate Takes Time To Help Their Buddies In The Music Biz
Billboard reports: The U.S. Senate passed the Webcaster Settlement Act of 2008, sending it to President Bush's desk for signature two days after the U.S. House of Representatives okayed the bill.

The bill allows for SoundExchange, on behalf of copyright owners and performers, to negotiate with Internet radio services through 2015 an alternative royalty agreement while Congress is in recess.

The negotiations are aimed at setting aside a 2007 decision by the Copyright Royalty Board that set a royalty rate that Internet radio participants said would endanger the fiscal health of webcasting. [Can't wait to see the first lawsuit after the "agreement" is reached that challenges it as Unconstitutional under Equal Protection.. Easy solution: use the same rates as radio.] - more on this story

Razia's Shadow (A Musical)
Atlantic Records reports: Fueled By Ramen proudly announces the ambitious new album by Forgive Durden, "Razia's Shadow (A Musical)."

The intricately crafted concept recording which features vocal performances from members of such bands as Panic At The Disco, Saves The Day, and Say Anything marks a milestone for Forgive Durden, as they follow up their 2006 full-length debut, "Wonderland," with an unprecedented work of rock 'n' roll songwriting and storytelling. "Razia's Shadow" arrives in stores and at online music retailers on October 28th.

Composed and conceived by the band's singer/songwriter Thomas Dutton, "Razia's Shadow" is a full-on piece of musical talespinning, complete with elaborate characters, powerful themes, and a hauntingly beautiful narrative. The album tells the story of a world divided in two by the selfish actions of a powerful, egotistical, and yet insecure angel. After generations of darkness, the world is eventually brought back together by the love and sacrifice of a couple brave enough to fulfill their destinies. - more on this story
