While the future of England's Tindersticks remains uncertain, lead vocalist Stuart A. Staples has recorded his second solo album, Leaving Songs. Set for a June 6 release through Beggars Banquet, Leaving Songs was written over the last year and recorded at the Nashville studio of Lambchop's Mark Nevers, with Dave Boulter, Neil Fraser, Thomas Belhom, and Tindersticks collaborators Terry Edwards and Gina Foster all contributing to the album.

Among the record's 10 tracks are two duets, one with Maria McKee ("This Road Is Long") and one with Lhasa de Sela ("That Leaving Feeling"). Staples' 2005 solo debut, Lucky Dog Recordings '03-'04, which was never released in the U.S., will be included as a bonus disc with Leaving Songs.

Onward flows the Riverrun Project, Underworld's series of innovative mp3 packages containing original half-hour-ish compositions and extensive art, each appearing in download-only format on the band's website. Underworld's Karl Hyde and Rick Smith unveiled the project last November, when they released the first bundle "Lovely Broken Thing", followed by "Pizza for Eggs" in December. Now, on Monday, June 5, the pioneering techno duo will release the third and final aural/visual package, titled "I'm a Big Sister, and I'm a Girl, I'm a Princess, and This is
My Horse", available for ?5 from

The project emerged from a desire to take music from the studio and make it readily available for the masses. Said Hyde of the process, "Creatively we get to write and publish new work in ways that suit us, offering a much needed alternative to our traditional album scheduling."

Before the band gets all 'traditional' again (like that'll happen), on June 10 Underworld will issue a Riverrun retrospective called "The Misterons Mix", containing music from the sonically varied first three releases, along with tons of photographs and album art. But you can only secure this special release if you've purchased the rest of the mp3 bundles. Alas, dry your eyes, you penny-pinching techno lovers in this post-Napster world: you can still hear new Underworld material on their live web broadcasts. They've posted a recent virtual concert, courtesy of Dutch radio station VPRO, on

And it doesn't end there. Underworld will continue to spoil fans with various 12" releases throughout the summer, with remixes by Paul Woolford, Pete Heller, Pig and Dan, and Robag Wruhme scheduled. In October, V2 will release the soundtrack to Anthony Minghella's new film Breaking & Entering, on which Hyde and Smith collaborated with composer Gabriel Yared. They're also working on new material, as well as music for the forthcoming Danny Boyle film Sunshine.

The Go! Team Want Kevin Shields

The British cheerleader dance group the Go! Team are looking to hire My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields to produce their second album. Shields has already completed a remix of the group's songs "Huddle Formation" and "Ladyflash," both of which are off of Thunder, Lightning, Strike. Go! Team leader Tim Parton told, "We're looking to get him onboard in some capacity. I'll probably just send him the album and say, 'What do you think? What are you gonna do on that?' and he'll come in and make some noise, get his tremolo arm out and rip it up like that. He always said he wanted to do a garage version of the Jackson 5, and he saw that in us." The band hopes to begin recording the new album in Brighton next month for a spring/summer 2007 release.

Parton added, "In it's current form I'm a bit worried that it's a bit too poppy. It's the catchiest thing I've ever written and as soon as I wrote it, I thought, 'Fuck! Did I write that?' We'll see if we can give it the Go! Team treatment and make it noisy enough to put out there." The Go! Team have just completed a series of tour dates in the UK with the Flaming Lips and have signed on to join Wayne Coyne for further dates during an American tour beginning in July. They have also locked in a few festival spots including ones at Ireland's Oxygen, Chicago's Lollapalooza, Scotland's T in the Park and Richard Branson's V Festival in the UK.

Now that katie no longer on NBC, let turn our fouce on the New Center in 29 Days

Now the me a about 19 millions other people Watch Katie last show yesterday (becoming the 4th watch today show(from 7 to 9 am with 8.4 millions) in history aftermath of 2000, 2004 and 1989 SF earthquake) It now time to move on to bigger and better things as today is the 1st days of a very, very long summer and the mid peak of the summer is almost upond up which i will get to in a moment but thouse ever pestey paper could not let go befroe there own take on katie last day on today

(all takeing from

New York Times Alessandra Stanley: "The farewell could have turned unbearably cloying but didn't, mainly because Ms. Couric reined in her emotions and did not exit in a puddle of tears. NBC seemed determined to make her fall apart, but her goal was to stay in control, the first step toward turning herself into a serious news anchor."

LATimes Paul Brownfield: It was "basically one of those office-cake ceremonies. You know, everyone standing around in awkward repose as the guest of honor promises to come visit so much 'you guys'll be sick of me' and eventually everyone trudges back to their desks to resume surfing the Net and wonder what exactly it is they're doing with their own lives."

Richmond Times Dispatch: "Let's put it this way; if you weren't a huge Katie Couric fan, yesterday's edition of Today must have been next to unbearable."

Rocky Mountain News: "The punch line of the latest TV industry joke is that the farewell to Katie Couric on Today has lasted longer than her 15-year tenure." Dusty Saunders says the three-hour tribute was one hour too long...

Palm Beach Post blogger: "I know it was only three hours. But after hour two, it felt more like 30. I'm talking days, not hours."

Washington Post Lisa de Moraes has a great play-by-play of All About Katie day. A sample: "Then Bennett sings 'The Best Is Yet to Come.' As in CBS News..."

Baltimore Sun: "American presidents have left the Oval Office with less fanfare and ritualistic pomp than Katie Couric's monthlong departure after 15 years from NBC's Today show..."

Boston Globe: "Note to the CBS publicity department: It's OK to pare down that budget a bit. Katie Couric's farewell on the 'Today' show yesterday was, in effect, a giant advertisement for the 'CBS Evening News...'"

NY Daily News: "Katie Couric's gala farewell to 'The Today Show' yesterday could have produced a very nice soundtrack album. It was less interesting as TV..."

USA Today: "Wednesday's farewell, capping off weeks of testimonials from diverse public figures, 'shows how deeply the roles of reporter and celebrity have blended together in today's high-profile media world,' says Fordham University communications professor Paul Levinson..."

Orlando Sentinel: "Was the Couric send-off excessive? Undoubtedly. But NBC wanted to thank her for making the network a lot of money..."

Detroit Free Press headline: "Tomorrow, Katie gets to sleep in..."

But it will begin all over agian back in september when the Katie do 6:30, Meredith Vieira(who will leave the view next week 6/9)take over next to matt in a new set for HDTV, but in the mean wheld we look ahead to the long long summer and to see if there any thing going on in the summer because where inside 30 days untill the high lights of the whole summer Comerica Tastefest held at the one and only New Center Area which take place over five days over the 4th of July Holiday(june 30th to July 4th) with over 70 bands over four stages across the new center area you get a full line up at
Tastefest web sight which is highlited or in the sing of the time these days There own Myspace sight at of i put the full line on the separt post at the top of the page(if you want to read the full post shrool down).

Not out of the woods yet

i will admit i was filping back and fort between countdown with Countdown with Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, Gameshow Marthon on CBS and fox "So you think you can dance" so i did not see much of game five the piston/heat series so i thought it will be over but to my surrpried they won game five 91-79 the defence some what show up a bit and now they have to win game six in Miami tommor night to hoped to win the game for a prime time show down on sunday on ABC, i may or may not watch who know, and if you wondering Tayshaun Prince scored a career playoff-high 29 points

Now you talk about the punge

I check out the new Billboard CD or alblum chart this week and The Raconteurs CD Broken Boy Soldiers took a mighty big slip in this week chart, Last week it debut in no. 7 between Rascal Flatts' "Me and My Gang" and "NOW! That's What I Call Music" 21 (better know as now i call crap) This week it not only fell out of the top 10 and the top 20, it fell 21 places to become the 28th selling CD of the week in between Bruce Springsteen "We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions"(27th) and Panic! At The Disco "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out"(29th), by compairinson a white stripes CD do not fall fast only droping out of the top 20 a few weeks at a time so this drop is so suprizeing, This week No.1 album by the way it Dixie Chicks "Taking The Long Way" No.1 despie corproatie radio and right wing talkers demont them to D-lister for there comment about the the pres begin the texas. Nice Try but it did not work.

One thing i forgot to mention in the tuesday post the wrap up on the Mopvment festival whick wrap up on Monday i will admit i did not go to movement but what i hear there was more people came to the 1st day of movement then last year fuse:in Festival 16,000 people in day one and almost 28,000 to 30,000 people came to the festiavl voer the two days but the final numbers are not in so if you want a recap of Movement 2006 check out the recap below

Now Let goes outside the 313 to see what up in indie Culture
()- our trused Souced

Well it look like the leaders of the Rap act the street Mike Skinner in November will run the New York City Marathon in November, On His blog he told his readers "I know it seems a bit long," he wrote, "but if people do it dressed as milk cartons, it can't be that hard, right?" He will be sponsors by Reebok, I know running a block from point a from point b in a video but this is 26.2 miles thoughs out the big city, but more power to you mike.

Two-tone ska legends the Specials are closer to reforming their original lineup than they have been in 25 years, according to their frontman Terry Hall. In a recent interview with BBC 6 Music, he said, "People keep offering us money all the time, and you try and be polite, but you have to say no matter how much money you've got that won't make us do it. We'll only do something if we feel it's right. I mean this is the closest we've been in 25 years to maybe doing something, but maybe not what's expected, I don't know."Another version of the band previously reunited in 1993 to back up Desmond Dekker on his album of ska covers, King Of Kings.

As previously reported, Dekker died last week at his home in England at age 64. The Specials formed in Coventry, England in 1977. They enjoyed success with their first album, The Specials, which was produced by Elvis Costello, and had a number one hit with “Ghost Town” in 1981. After the single was released, Terry Hall, Neville Staple, Roddy Radiation and Lynval Golding officially left the Specials, and Jerry Dammers was left to contemplate the future of the band.

Through the decline of the second wave of ska in the '80s the band went through many configurations, like the Special AKA, and, at one point, even joined with The Beat to form the Special Beat in the early '90s. These various incarnations released Today's Specials (1996,) Guilty Til Proved Innocent! (1998) and Skinhead Girl (2000). If the original 1977 members reunite, it would be the first time they recorded together in 25 years.

Culture City Extra
Katie Last Act on Today

This Is a special Edtion post of this Blog sight Because this is going to be fun and yes going to be a Kleenex Moment for the Next three Hours.

Today after 15 wonderful years on Today, Katie Couirc will be moving on for bigger and better thing with her new full time job at CBS becoming the first female solo promo time news anchoring of the CBS Evening News to do some hard news and this is going to be special on today, so since this is a big event I decide to hourne Katie by doing a experiment by watching the show and do running commentary during her last show.

if you are reading this later in the day, I know you get the ful Blow by blow but if you up and check out my blog you get a update every 30 minutes from now until the end of the show somewhere around 10:00AM and it wii be official at 10:30 AM to clean up anything bad on my part.

So if the commet will go some thing like this

6:23AM - it 74 when you wake up
I will say that Hot

something like that so I will keep up with the show as best I can you have to understand I typed 22 word a minutes now that slow. but it my first time so let see how this work.

So back story after Dan Rather left the job back in March 2005 it been empty at CBS with Bob Sehecher fill in the anchor chair since then and TV geeks was asking who will fill the chair, Katie Couirc was mention offen more everyone was hoping she would stay at Today inculing this person But it all came around on April 6 at 7:32 AM when she make this announcement:

"After listening to my heart and my gut, two things that have served me pretty well in the past, I have decided I'll be leaving Today at the end of May,"

and with that the Long Countdown began that lead up to this day so if you watching this check back with this site ever 30 minutes but if you miss it you get the full run down and my update today because this is my off day because I have some erron to do on Wednesday and on garbage watch because since Monday was a holiday if about a day late

For the last 6 months we have been working away at the new record. We have been to the West coast (California) then to the East coast (Connecticut) and finally back to the Midwest (chicago).

And in those 6 months we have all lost our minds, gained some thicker skin, lost a good portion of our hearing (at least Jason), seen some good shows, met some really cool/nice people, and made a record that describes those 6 months.

We will be seeing all of you very soon. In some club, bar, skate park, festival, basement, areana, pool party, or bar mitzvah.

The album is tentatively titled
"Love, Hate, and then there's you"

Happy Memorial Day Everybody

Today is kind of a light day in Culture City expect if you going to the beach or to Downtown or just tired depending on the time you read this blog today.

Since this is a day to honored our fallen, and there is it a holiday that is no Culture city news in the underground today.

So I will used this time to reveal My trushed sourced I used in this blog time after time for this blog which is almost reaching it one month mark.(it techlly started on Sunday night may 7, but the 1st full report was on May 8)

Now the 1st rule in this blog was to filter out the underreported from the overreported so I go to the basic sights like:

Yahoo News Entertainment section: I very good to a point but they have all the news away from the big screen or the TV Tube I very O.K, you find good story here and there

since most of the stuff on the top of the Blog is local and up to date I do check the news sight of the local newspapers in town.

The Detroit News, and the Detroit Free Press it have today paper on-line but also have a breaking News Section in the the front of both web sight, But I like the Free Press a little more better because it put the update info in a box so you see what going on before you see it on the 5 PM News and from time to time it will have a breaking culture News Story.

Not to knock on the News it do put the breaking news on top of the sight but it look like the rest of to day paper.

Also if there some thing that in miss from other web sight there always the very good it always on top of things in Detroit rock city always on top of the scence next to me like who playing where and have very good links to other good music sight

also I will rave about a good story in the
Metrotimes Detroit Long Time alt. Weekly they report on what is going down the Detroit Media Might have miss and a look at the Detroit arts scene and also have good listing with great ads to see who coming soon to the Detroit area.

and some time I will glaze at the real Detroit weekly (The Metrotimes Elive Nemise) I OK weekly but they have too much Club ads with girls you don't want to date and some of the artice are some time too short, But they do list the DMRC Top 10.

Now Outsider of the 313 there always good music web sight:
MTV News have a decest web sight, but they always report on the the overhype and who clicking on MTV when there not airing crap programming.

There are some better websight then MTV News

And here are some I like so much

1st there is it take a look at at the Indie scene from top to bottom with a very good and detail news section, every reviews of singles, Alublum, Live Review and freather it the 1st sight I go to see who on tour and who coming to Detroit in the Near future and also see who about to put out a new C.D., That the massed want to mark on their calderen when it come out.(Best time to view after 5PM)

also good is, you can say it a almost live what happened in the from photo of live gig to song from new stuff on MP3 to a little blast in between, The sight is very good.

And don't forget the Magitzine webb sight like
CMJ, Rolling Stone, Spin, and alternative Press.

There also a very good sourced for info as well.

And don't forget the one and only UK magitzine the
New Music Express (A.K.A. the N.M.E.)there web sight have been up and running for the last ten years and the have the latest video and preview of upcoming C.D. and have cover the Summer time UK festivals scence like now other and it also have there own awards show.

And also a good souced as well is Canada
Chart magazine it a good site but also see what going on with Canada Bands with there Dailt alternative Music News which always a good read.

Also a good sight is
CBC Radio 3, The sight have have a in-line stream of the latest Canadian Indie artist, and very well put together podcast hosted by Grant Lawrence (Who also a ex- Member of the Smugglers), A running blog on the latest on what going on in Canada indie scene, and see who going to be on there Sirius radio Station(Ch.94) and radio show (Saturday 7:30PM-4AM) and a good collection of past concert and section and a lot of profiled of Canada Bands, and also let you create you own playlist it you like the Band or song you like, it a very well put together sight.

also don't for get other good station that also on the web like which have one of the best show the net or On-Air in the country. Morning Becomes Eclectic hosted by the one and only Nic Harcourt, it also have a very good live music from time to time they are all archive in real audio and Windows Media and is always have video to the live set.

also have good live music if you don't have 45 minutes to spear, Seattle have always a live set from band that fit the mode of the station Motto "Where the Music Matters" and as with it archive as well.

Also good is Riff 2, WRIF-FM HD radio station which you only can get if you have a HD Radio but if you don't have a HD Radio you can hear it on-line at, The station Have a good mix of music like Indie rock, Rap and heavy Melta rock also it have show like Detroit Local 101 looking at Local Music, a video game show, a goth show, and more.

and as always there always bbc on-line ( all there station is on-line like Radio one which have good shows at night like Lamacq Live, Zane Lowe, and the One Music Program(Tuesday to Thursday 6-8PM) and dance music like house and techno from the like of Judge Jules, Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Annie Nightingale(Who by the way was the 1st female UK Radio UK), Radio two also play good music from today to luck song from a long time ago, Good DJ include Terry Wogan and the one and only Suzi Quatro and her show Rocking with Suqi Q, and the alway fun is 6 music where they always play new music and old classic and live set and don't for get all three station all have very good Documentary on music and other things.

and there always to see if the gig is a go ther I will always to tell you if a gig a go or not and it will tell you how much to get in.

ANd on more thing I you like the bands and there nice tunes and sounds you can always go to Music site and join the fan club for free and they also have good tunes on there page.

So that are some of the sourced I used for my blog sight every day so the avg. music fan can be better in from before MTV sit on it for a week and a half.

That it for this down day post

before I go there two passing in music that happened last week

Ska and reggae pioneer Desmond Dekker died Wednesday, May 24 of a heart attack at his home in Surrey, England. Dekker, who was born in Kingston, Jamaica, had a string of hits both in his home country and in the UK. His most well known singles included "Israelites," "Rudie Got Soul" and "007 (Shanty Town)." Many of his songs were about rudeboy culture, glamorizing the lifestyle for the growing mod subculture in 1960s England. Dekker is credited for bringing world attention to Jamaica's ska and reggae movements, as well as paving the way for artists like Bob Marley. Dekker continued to record into the '70s, though the singer declared bankruptsy in the '80s when Two Tone ska fans dwindled. A re-release of "Israelites" and a full touring schedule up until his death kept Dekker busy. (


Ian Copeland, a rock music agent and entrepreneur who represented The Police, R.E.M., Adam Ant, The Go-GoÂ’s and other seminal rock groups that emerged in the 1970s and 1980Â’s New Wave and punk scenes, has died. He was 57.

Copeland died Tuesday of melanoma, said Amy Grey, a family spokeswoman.

Copeland was one of three brothers in the family who became prominent figures in the music industry. Younger brother Stewart was the drummer for The Police. Older sibling Miles founded record label International Records Syndicate.

In the mid-1970s, Copeland moved to Macon, Ga., where he worked for an agency booking tours for several Southern rock groups, including Charlie Daniels, Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers Band.

Word of LondonÂ’s emerging punk rock scene excited Copeland, who sought to get the agency he was working for to bring the raw new British bands to U.S. venues.
It didnÂ’t work. But when his brother Miles signed the British band Squeeze, the two siblings arranged for the band to tour small clubs in the U.S. They used the same strategy to promote other bands, including The Police and the B-52s.

They will both be miss by all
