Bauhaus/Love & Rockets Bassist David J has announced that selections from his catalog of solo albums are to be reissued. The official announcement is below:
As a founding member and rhythmic backbone for not one but two of the biggest and most critically adored post-punk bands to ever haunt the stage, David J has more than earned his place in music history. Not only is his forceful, no-nonsense bass playing immediately identifiable but it's nearly impossible to imagine what either Bauhaus or Love & Rockets would sound like without it. Thankfully, we don't have to, and even more fortunately, we actually do know what David J sounds like outside of the context of those two massive bands, as he has released numerous solo albums starting in the '80s and continuing all the way through to just last year.

A music video for the song "Greyboy Says" has been released from the forthcoming album from late Tragically Hip icon Gord Downie and Bob Rock, "Lustre Parfait", which will arrive on May 5th. Here is the official announcement:
The penultimate song before the arrival of Gord Downie and Bob Rock's long-anticipated album, Lustre Parfait, "Greyboy Says" is its rallying cry. The physical combustion of poetry and power, the song is filled to the rafters with searing electric guitars and incomparable wails of wisdom. With words by Downie - the iconic late frontman The Tragically Hip, one of the most beloved rock bands in Canadian history - and music by Bob Rock - the multi-platinum-selling producer of Metallica, Motley Crüe, The Offspring, Nelly Furtado, Michael Bublé, Bryan Adams, and more - "Greyboy Says" is alight with Gord's heartrending lyrics of resilience and Bob's incomparable sonic theatrics. The opening song on Lustre Parfait, "Greyboy Says" was also the last Gord recorded with Bob for the collaborative project. Gord shines through when he sings "You can do it, and if you can't I'm here" - an impossible assertion of his everlasting closeness. On "Greyboy Says," Rock's mastery of brash post-punk energy inspires one of the most memorable performances of Downie's unparalleled career. (continue)
Alt-rockers Stuck On Planet Earth recently released their first new track of the year, "Crack In The Glass", and to celebrate we asked vocalist Al Capo to tell us about the song. Here is the story:
The inspiration for 'Crack In The Glass' came from an argument I had early in my relationship with my counterpart. Most people want stability in their relationships, and as a musician that can be challenging to offer. Musicians and artists lead unpredictable lives, and even with the best intentions, things can often become complicated. I realized that I had to stop living selfishly and position myself so that I could think for two instead of one. (continue)
