So you think you have a good single of week eahh

It is friday the end of a long week for me doing My 1st ever Blog doing good work to note the coming atraction, show, and any news of the Net, I tell you more about it on weekend update on Sunday, and i thought it would be a good time to interduce a brand new segment on my blog sight it call My NME single of the week, if any one over the 50 years history of the UK leading Music Maginzine The New Music Express or as the kids call it NME for short not only review the alblum coming out but they also review the single that also come out in that week (UK single are release on Monday, US Release are on tuesday) and i always read it to see if that band new song is any good or for better or worst ask the question what are they thinking a bad song over a very awsome track, now every week at i will listen to the three tracks the NME picks to be top(the winner and the two runner-up), if i like the single of the week i will give it my thums up, But if i hate of dont like the single of then week i pick the two runner-up as sub and it will be my winner as single of the week, but if i did like the two i can go outside the box, so you get the title the My NME Single of the week.

And My take of this week NME Single of the week for the isseud dated May 6(with He says the city used to be a community but turned bitter and ugly after the White Stripes scored multi-platinum success. “Look through your rock history,” he tells the mag. “This happens every time a city has gotten cool. I figured that everyone knew so much about rock history that it wouldn’t happen. We didn’t have five bands like Seattle had that went out and sold ten million records apiece. We thought, ‘Well, maybe we’ll all stay together.’ No. I think I gave people too much credit. When it comes down to it, it’s real simple. Anytime, any town, anywhere, it’s going to be the same thing. Next year when such-and-such city blows up, I will make a point of going to the most popular band there and saying, ‘Start packing your bags. You’re going to lose your friends.'” White goes on to say in Detroit he was "in a negative environment surrounded by negative people," even says the “Satan” referred to in the album title of the Stripes’ 2005 album “Get Behind Me Satan” is a partial reference to the city, along with the parts of his personality he left behind when moving to Nashville. on the cover and dont forget Broken Boys Solders is Out this tuesday, but hoped for a racounteurs show have Dim, but i tell you that in News)

The Winner- Primal Scream-Country Gril - it a good track nothing speacil here the tunes start out good but kind of runs out of gas in the end i think that what a long lad off will do
My Virct: it OK

Runner-Up No.1- Hot Chip - Boy From School - it is a very good track it have a very good groove and beat to it but it some time get too long and and kind of get bored near the end i not engoth to win the My NMES of the week
It good and smooth

Runner-up No.2-The Boyfriends-Adult Acne - the only problem i can not find the track any where on there web sight or there myspace sight or any whereon the web so i cant rate it

So as promied i went outside the box to choose this week winner and yes i found it but it only available on there band web sight It the the wonderful New Zedander Band the Datsuns with there down single "Stuck here for Days" i a great tunes which start out very slow and keep on rocking and it a were good single and that is who that make them good rocker and also a coulpe of local connect 1st they opened up for the Pixies when they did there reunion tour in Detroit a year and a half ago and in one of indie rock best of this early days "Harmonic Generator" which have guess vocial from Marice Bolen and ex-Von Bondies (who i still miss) Carrie Smith, so with that

The Dastuns"Stuck Here For Days" is My NME single fo the week

OK in live and local News

As you know Jack White have left detroit For the country of Nashville and in this month Spin (Which i dont have a copy in the Mail yet) he tell us why He says the city used to be a community but turned bitter and ugly after the White Stripes scored multi-platinum success. “Look through your rock history,” he tells the mag. “This happens every time a city has gotten cool. I figured that everyone knew so much about rock history that it wouldn’t happen. We didn’t have five bands like Seattle had that went out and sold ten million records apiece. We thought, ‘Well, maybe we’ll all stay together.’ No. I think I gave people too much credit. When it comes down to it, it’s real simple. Anytime, any town, anywhere, it’s going to be the same thing.

So that could mean The Raconteursmay not do a Detroit Show in the the Futher that could not be good.

The sunny psychedelics of Apples In Stereo are currently finishing up their fifth studio album, but the band has announced that they have parted ways with SpinART, their longtime label. The new LP, which will be called A New Magnetic Wonder, is slated to hit shelves sometime in 2007 and on the band's website the Elephant 6 collective members said that they are currently "finalizing a deal with a well-known independent label" for its release. All of the Apples' records over the last ten years— save 1997's sole Sire release, Tone Soul Evolution— have come out on SpinART. The band gave no reason for the split. Apples In Stereo are keeping busy though. They will open a handful of southern dates for the Strokes at the end of the month and are scheduled to play Athens Popfest in Georgia this August. Lucky for Elephant 6 fans, Olivia Tremor Control and Sunshine Fix frontman Bill Doss will play keyboards and sing backup for the Apples at their live shows. (No Detroit Dates)

Exclusive: Matt Sharp Talks Rentals' Return
Amy Phillips reports:No more waiting...the Rentals' return is on. Today, Matt Sharp's synth-pop band announced that it has scheduled the initial shows of its first worldwide tour in a decade. This July, after a couple of warm-up shows in California, they'll head to Japan for a pair of arena gigs.

Yesterday, Pitchfork spoke to Matt Sharp, and the former Weezer bassist outlined the rest of the Rentals' touring plans: "We're going to come back and do a limited amount of shows in the U.S. We're not going to cover the whole thing, but we're probably going to do the major markets, and do some shows in Canada in the major Canadian markets, and then maybe do a little bit in Europe, a few of the major markets in Europe. That's still pending at the moment. But we're crossing our fingers."

The band is also scheduled to perform at this summer's Sonorama Festival in Burgos, Spain. "A very big part of my heart lives in Spain," Sharp said. "At times I almost feel like I'm Antonio Banderas' son or something."

In addition to Sharp, the current Rentals lineup features founding member Rachel Haden (formerly of that dog!), as well as the following newbies: vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Sara Radle (multi-inst/vocals), "synth master" Ben Pringle, vocalist/viola player Lauren Chipman, and drummer Dan Joeright.

"Everybody in the group essentially multitasks all the time," Sharp explained. "Everybody has a little piano experience, plays synthesizers, plays acoustic guitar...There's so many different combinations of things to explore within the group dynamic, and the feeling that I have with this group is that these people are really heavyweights. And we're trying to do things the right way and with a lot of integrity, and build a real family."

Although Sharp has been sporadically working on new material, the focus for the Rentals at the moment is perfecting new arrangements of songs from the Rentals' back catalog, drawing from the band's two albums, 1995's Return of the Rentals and 1999's Seven More Minutes. "A lot of it is reworking those old songs to represent the possibility of where we're going," Sharp said. "Some of it feels very new to me. Some of the older songs from the first album have taken on a totally new life. They have a real sense of where we're going. And part of it is challenging, and a challenge that I'm willing to meet."

The world tour will focus primarily on old songs; after the band returns to their home base in California, they'll concentrate on the next album.
Sharp attributes his decision to resurrect the Rentals to "really just a combination of a lot of different things coming together." "Having certain people come into my life at the right times, and the support of other people, sort of helped me get on that path," he said. "It just seemed like that's where we should be, and this is what we should be doing. And it just felt like the natural place for us to be."
He added that his former Weezer bandmate, Rivers Cuomo, was especially influential. "I think probably I saw Rivers less than a year ago, and he was really kind," Sharp said. "He's been one of the big people for me, who have been very supportive, going, 'that's what you should be doing with your life' the sense of writing pop music again."
Sharp spent a good part of the past few years concentrating on acoustic-centric solo material, releasing the Puckett's Versus the Country Boy EP in 2003 and a self-titled album in 2004. He saw himself headed in a more experimental direction, before the intervention of Cuomo and others.
"The average length of the songs on the solo record are probably seven minutes long," he said. "And I think I probably would have gone further in that direction, and I may return there at some point. I've always had the desire to end up finding a place in the world that's like [Talk Talk's] Spirit of Eden record, and where there's three songs on the album and it's still a full length album. And I was probably heading more and more into that place.
"Rivers and I got to spend some time doing some writing together, and he really started talking to me about writing more concise songs, that expressed a lot with a lot of economy. Instead of doing what I had been doing, which was taking as much time as you want to say what you need to say. And there were a lot of really good things that came out of those times that we spent together. There's too many people who have had an influence on why I'm at where I'm at, to say there's a single person like that. But there's certainly a part of it in there that he shares."
Sharp also credits Canadian sister duo Tegan and Sara, with whom he has toured and recorded, with helping him get on the path he's pursuing today. "They really helped me with the way they just conduct themselves," he said. "Those guys have more integrity than any group I've ever been around. The way that everybody that's involved with them are kind and generous...that stuff is coming from the core, and it's everybody that's involved with them, it's not just them, it's every member of the group, every member of their management, people that are selling their tee shirts; whatever it is, they all have that real graciousness to them."
Check out the Rentals remix of Tegan and Sara's "Walking With a Ghost" on the Rentals website.

Now the only other News outside the 313 from our trush socured:


Just when you think you've seen it all and it seems oh so quiet on the reissue front, Rhino Records goes and puts together another box set. And who is it but Björk, coming to you in all of her big time sensuality with every single one of her albums, from her 1993 Debut to last year's original soundtrack to Drawing Restraint 9 (a film collaboration with her "life partner", Matthew Barney), all remastered and gussied up for the pleasure of your headphones.
Like someone in love, the box set--which will be released June 27 and titled, simply Surrounded--only wants you to be violently happy. Thus, all seven albums (including Selmasongs, the soundtrack to Björk's star turn, Dancer in the Dark, which is like Crossroads but super depressing) are being released as DualDiscs with all of the videos for each album featured as bonus tracks on the DVD sides.
These bonuses include videos directed by the likes of Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry, Chris Cunningham, and as "Ren and Stimpy" creator (!) John Kricfalusi. The DVD side of the Drawing Restraint 9 soundtrack also includes a bonus cut called "Petrolatum".
Paul "PDub" Watson oversaw the 5.1 surround sound remixing, and with a name like "PDub", it's pretty much guaranteed to turn out well. If it doesn't, we ask that you show forgiveness.

On May 16, Rhino will reissue the trio's first two Sire Records albums, 1991's Green Mind and 1993's Where You Been, in remastered and expanded form. Also available on the market that day is J Mascis Live at CBGB's: The First Acoustic Show, a limited edition disc featuring an avalanche of previously unreleased material that 5000 lucky fans will have a chance to snatch up for the low, low suggested retail price of $9.99.
Both reissues are packaged with photographs and Byron Coley-penned liner notes. (Does that guy do anything other than write liner notes these days?) Green Mind holds three bonus tracks: the "Start Choppin" B-sides "Forget It" and "Turnip Farm" (which also appeared on the Reality Bites soundtrack) and a cover of the Flying Burrito Brothers' "Hot Burrito #2", which features backing vocals from-why not?--actor Matt Dillon. Guess this was around the time when he was in his Singles grunge rock phase.
Where You Been has been lengthened with the previously unreleased John Peel session version of "Hide", an alternate take of "Keeblin'", and a long live recording of "What Else Is New".
These albums follow Merge Records' 2005 reissues of Dinosaur Jr.'s first three albums, 1985's Dinosaur, 1987's You're Living All Over Me, and 1988's Bug.

The Wedding Present request the pleasure of your company at the marriage of CD and DVD, taking place in North America on Tuesday, May 16, 2006, and ministered by Manifesto Records. The ceremony, titled Search for Paradise: Singles 2004-5, features three singles from last year's Take Fountain album, along with their attendant B-side bridesmaids, acoustic versions of the A-sides, and a remix of "Ringway to Seatac" by German popists Klee, all previously unreleased in North America. DVD footage includes promotional videos for "Interstate 5", "I'm from Further North Than You", "Ringway to Seatac", and "Don't Touch That Dial", along with a live acoustic version of "Perfect Blue", and, of course, behind the scenes footage of picking out dresses and choosing a caterer and stuff like that.

And there is a notable death to report Martin Chin died last week after a long hospitalization. Dont know who Martin Chin was he was the owner of The Chin Tiki at 2121 Cass Ave. Two block west of the fox town area, It was A restaurant, nightclub and swinging hotspot, the Chin Tiki opened in 1967, just in time for the Detroit riots, and was shuttered in 1980 when the city hit another downward spiral. In its heyday, the club hosted lavish Polynesian floor shows patronized by famous tinseltown drinkers and sports heroes, Barbra Streisand, Muhammad Ali and Joe DiMaggio among them, But the culture Kids will remember the Chin Tiki as the place where Rabbit (Who was Play By Eminem) work in the Movie 8 Mile.

Chin is survived by his wife Kitty, daughters Debbie and Valerie, and brother Marlin, owner of Chin's in Livonia.

With Chin's death, Chin Tiki's future is bleak. The building's up for sale, and is in danger of becoming another parking lot. is that what wee need in downtown andher Parking Lot in the city that slow becoming a city of Parking Lot come on have they ever hear of the word reuse building!!!

David Bowie announced Monday that he will curate the first High Line Festival in New York City next May. The 10-day festival, at which Bowie will play his first full concert in the city since 2003, was created by Bowie and his two partners to be an annual arts and music event that will take place in the neighborhood surrounding the new park being created on High Line, the city old, abandoned elevated train on the West Side. Bowie hopes to feature emerging talent alongside the "superstars" he intends to book. He will, then, pick a new "visionary" curator for the following summers fest. It's like Manhattan is getting its own All Tomorrow's Parties with the Thin White Duke as its king.

Welcome To Culture City

Hello, welcome to the underground,Welcome to the indie culture, Welcome to the ceartate town that is Detroit, where cars were born, sander Ice Cream once rule and some of the good and cool sound music was made and still made today, it just like you want to go to the show talk to your friends and see what is going on, it either going in small town where the near town for a gig or some thing to do is the near collage town or the big market city where depend on the city you and take a bus to see a new UK after your friend told you that cant take you because he going on a nice date north of the freeway.

Well to see and follow underground and accpect it have always not being easy it date way back in the 50's with our parents era, you see back then a gig anywhere mean you have to dress up nice and look nice to impress you date and see a singer or do-wap group show why there on the "Hit Parade" it was nice for a while, But it all all change in 1954 where at the Overton Park Shell in Memphis, TN a young shy teenage just out of high school was opener for a country dude he was so nervous his legs cause the young girls to go nuts for this young boy who would die to take him home to mommy, The young kid would be know an the future King of Rock and Roll ELVIS PRESLEY, He broke down the wall and created a buzz that come out from the under ground to a sensation which have not recover, soon after that so many kids want to play rock n roll music and the underground indie movement was on.

there parents were not impress so the kids where to follow the sence where they go as time when on like and sounds change too from the hippie era of the 60's and to the Disco era of the 70"s and the power of the 80's the kids where not going to take lying down listen to over hype awfew music there where going to listen to who they think it sound cool that was reinforce in two eras, in the early 90's where where Nirvana, Preal Jam, and a stew of band from the east coast to the west coast create a new diffence sound which was so popuarl it would drive those awful hair bands out of business but it did not last long after the death of Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain and then the music went in a bad funk with bad Music whit some over-hype boy bands gril who is still in school and is sexiness up because they have a song and a bunch of over the top song from a sappy film ouch, which lead to a second of era good music, Which i say i am prode to be a part of because during this time of bad music at a small club on 3129 cass ave. just a little NW of downtown Detroit there was a club just open up call the
Gold Dollar, it been only open for a year for band who just starting out before they play the magic stick, it had bands like Detroit Cobras, Spat!, The Wild Bunch,American Mars and other local bands and the poetry reading here and there but one hot night on august 15, 1997, A two piece band from SW Detroit made there debut opened up for a estabish band call The Hentchmen Only a few people show up for that gig, but legion UK Newsman and label head of factor records Tony Wilson says "that History man" that band start a new under ground of Detroit music and reinterduce world to the sound of Detroit with bands like Outrageous Cherry, The Soldad Brothers, His Name is Alive, The Go, The Greenhorns, Dirtbombs, Gore Gore Girls, The Clone Defects, Volebeats, Slumber Party, The Come-Ons, The Paybacks, Amino Acids, The Wax Wings, Von Bondies, and The Sights made Detroit the kings of the music wolrd aging after the motown four decades early oh by the way that band that light a fuse that night in 1997 opened for the Hemtchmen: The White Stripes.

But the last few years to gain accpect in the main stream have been thought go, MTV don't play music video any more just air idiot want to hurting themselves, bad singer being upfront on ever tablod show and a star is born by just singing clean up Keroke, and to over hyped singer and band singing bad songs to force you to by bad merch. and and a band who just make for the indie kids but it giving less pub for a guy who cant sing rickey martin.
