Breaking Culture News

This is a dispatch from Ottawa,ON,Canada as the indie rock band "Arcade Fire" played there first show in almost 14 months tonight in a almost unlikely venue Canterbury High School in Ottawa that where member Richard Reed Parry when to school there as a wram up for a series of sold out show in aptipapatcie for the new album "Neon Bible" which is out all over March 6th.

CBC Radio 3 Michael Barclay was embedded with the band and filed this report on the CBC radio 3 websight tonight at 8:07 PM

Nothing’s Hid from Us Kids
Posted by Michael Barclay at 8:07 PM

Smells like teen spirit, indeed. Specifically, the unmistakable stench of teenage boy. This is, after all, a high school cafeteria.

But it’s also the site of the first Arcade Fire show in 14 months, the first time anyone outside their immediate circle of friends has heard their new material, the first time they’ve played in front of an audience since they opened for U2 at the Bell Centre in their hometown of Montreal.

The opening act is one of the strangest I’ve ever seen: a school administrator, who reminds the audience how lucky they are to go to such a prestigious arts school. Frankly, his flow was a bit stilted, and had too many shout-outs. After a few words from the head of the alumni committee, the Arcade Fire take the stage, decked out in spiffy new stage threads and more than a tad nervous about the first public performance of Neon Bible.

Unfortunately, the set is plagued with sound troubles, feedback and uncooperative instruments. Not that anyone there cares, or has even seen enough shows to know the difference. The band is excited to be playing again, and the kids—well, the kids are excited by everything. There’s lots of pogo-ing, lots of hippie dancing, lots of friendly crowd surfing, and lots of screaming anytime there’s an obvious crescendo—or decrescendo, or anything worth screaming about. It’s so easy to forget the innocent joy of first love, first concerts—and of course, the first time a world famous band comes to play your high school cafeteria.

No wonder the Arcade Fire wanted this kind of audience. If they played anywhere else, there’d be far too many people stroking their chins and deciding whether or not the new material held up to Funeral.

And for the record, it is. Again, the sound trouble made it hard to make out any lyrics or any musical subtleties—like the sacrificial string section, for example. But the strength of new songs like the political “Windowsill,” the propulsive “The Well and the Lighthouse,” and the triumphant single “Intervention” were all obvious to even the tone deaf.

Making up for the bad sound is the fact that the venue is far from oversold. Though 400 tickets were sold—available only to students and alumni—the cafeteria is spacious, not at all stuffed. That gives the teachers plenty of room to roam and try in vain to stifle the legions of amateur photographers determined to preserve the event. One mild-mannered older teacher politely asks me if I’ll delete my photos later that evening.

I told him that of course I would. Except, of course, for the one you see above of Richard Reed Parry, the arcade fire member who attended Canterbury High School.

Now there maybe hopes for a new album after all these years, in a interview with Magnet Magazine front man Kevin Shield told the mag:

“I do feel that I will make another great record. We are 100 percent going to make another My Bloody Valentine record unless we die or something.”, “A lot of people say the reason My Bloody Valentine didn’t make another record is because we couldn’t.

“That’s mostly true, but not because I couldn’t make another record, but because I could never be bothered to make another record unless I was excited by it. And just by fate or whatever, that never happened.

“I’d feel really bad if I didn’t make another record. Like ‘Shit, people only got the first two chapters, but the last is the best bit.”

Sheild have set no time table for the album will be a first in almost 16 years, anythings to hear the loud sonic sound of Bilinda Butcher voice aging.

* The Wait for My Bloody Valentine album may be longer than a UK victory in the Euro vision song contest which they not won since of all people Katrina & the Waves in 1997 for the classic song "Love Shine a Light"(dont worried i never hear of it) and in the last ten years the Country entry have not live up to the country entry with the dearful like of Precious,Nicki French,Lindsay D,James Fox,Javine Hylton, and last but not least the only band to score a amazing nil points Jemini.

After Daz Sampson Fail to take back the Eurovision Crown last year with "Teenage Life" Morrissey was upset with how the UK have fare by telling the crowd at a show in london last may: "I was horrified but not surprised to see the U.K. fail again", he also added "There's a question I keep asking myself -- why didn't they ask me? It keeps going round in my head."

Well it look like the BBC have ask the Former Smith Fornt man to pen a tune for the america idol meet the Olmpicy but with really chessy songs contest, The BBC said it was in talks with the singer, but that nothing had been confirmed as of yet, even if he do pen a song for Eurovision it mean he dont repersen the U.K. he have to win the vote of the public in March, The final takes place May 12 in Helsinki, Finland, home of last year gollish winners the heavy meadlrock band Lordi.

* And if you think a singer battling all of Europe for a song title was bad, try batting a guy in a donuts costume, it did happen last Monday night, it all stem from a weird gonzo date with a San Francisco fan of the U.K. Grime rapper Lady Sovereign he raise $10,000 to take her out on a date when she was in San Fran for a gig, they went on the date and he have a great time, but Lady Sovereign did not have a great time telling the press month laters: "It could have been better. No one's ever spent-- well, apart from record labels-- ten grand on me. So I don't know, it seems a bit odd because we had this massive yacht that he had hired out, and I didn't understand why I couldn't bring on, say, people from the show, my band...because he had photographers on the fucking yacht. And one of his friends.

"It could have been so much better if it was more of a party."

well that made the guy who made the Date was upset so he set in his Friend who go by the rap name Jelly Dount(Yes Friends her a rapper).

Late Monday (1-8) at a made up gig in San Francisco, the Donuts was egging her on and it almost turn into Jack vs Jason 2, He show up and challenged her to a rap battle, al. la. 8 Mile, but she was not happy that some guy in a Jelly Donuts bug her during her gig so the crowd began "BATTLE JELLY DONUT!" but she have none of that so she did the next best thing she spit on, poured Red Bull on him after a few jabs Jelly donut was kick out the club, ouch.

If you want to hear the story from Jelly donuts side of the story and photo of that night
cilck here and here click below to see video from the jelly donuts and a fan video of the night.

* The Decemberists who licking it wound from the Countdown to Guitarmageddon on the The Colbert Report just before Christmas have decide to raised funds for p:ear, a Portland-based organization that, according to its website, "builds positive relationships with homeless and transitional youth through education, art and recreation to affirm personal worth and create more meaningful and healthier lives."

The band is off to Europe to do a bunch of gig they will do a spring gig in the US and if you cant wait, Go to the

This Weekend Big News Story is a monster of a news story

as it came as a shock but not a surprize that V2 Records in a major restructure plan deciede to shut down puting out new released and turning into a catilog lable instade of a New released label expect for Gospel.

About 35 people, including President Andy Gershon have been let go as part of the restructure and there entier U.S. roster which inclued used to be base detroit band(now live in Nashville)White Stripes, Brendan Benson, The Raconteurs, and Blance have been let go makeing thouse act and other Free Anget.

The lable also include the Crystal Method, Moby, the Blood Brothers, Gang of Four, Ray Davies, Paul Weller, Grandaddy, Isobel Campbell, Mercury Rev, Madness, Stina Nordenstam, the Mooney Suzuki,Margot and the Nuclear So and So's, Underworld, Blood Meridian, Ane Brun, and Alkaline Trio

This only involde band on the U.S lable, not the UK roster and there import like Wichita( Bloc Party,The Cribs),Luaka Bop,City Slang and Modular.

So this mean the entire roster are a free aneget and First the White stripes who i report last week on this blog sight there in the prosecc of making a brand new album they are free anget, but a band spokepreson told Pitchfork Media, the Stripes' contract with V2 had already expired(the Last beging 2005 "Get Behind Me Satan")and there looking for a new labe to include the band and a distributor for their own imprint, Third Man Records for any new albums, which include Brendan Benson and the band both Brendan and front man do together The Raconteurs.

The Worst part about this that V2 records own the right to the entire back catitlog not only the White stripes,Brendan Benson,The Raconteurs and ever other band that was on the V2 Lable.

now the other detroit base band on the lable the Blance it is sing to V2 records which released If We Can't Trust The Doctors back in 2004 and just released a EP "What This Town Needs" last year, well i talk to a member of the band and he told me that the band have a contract with V2 and will released there new record "Little Amber Bottles" first in the UK where they have a Diffence lable in the UK Loose Music and see when the album released here in the US maybe V2, maybe some other lable.

V2 Records was started in 1996 by Richard Branson, four years after he sold Virgin Records to EMI, he sold the North America lable last year to Sheridan Square Entertainment(base out of new york) for $15 million.

Mark Radcliffe and his buddy Wammo set off on a funny yet poignant radio road movie in search of the band which made the record that changed their lives 30 years earlier: the classic Dr Feelgood album ‘Down by the Jetty’.

In this new series focusing on the brilliant satirical wit of Gilbert and Sullivan, Alan Titchmarsh explores their operatic careers, and discovers how they not only founded the modern musical, but poked fun at the Victorian establishment.

Paul Gambaccini presents a series chronicling the life of singer Jackie Wilson.The story of the Detroit entertainer who started singing blues and gospel on street corners. Jackie Wilson talks about his early boxing career from an archive interview shortly before his heart attack in 1975, before moving full time into music.

Barry Norman after a long career as a TV broadcaster, journalist and film expert turns his hand with great effect to steam radio to introduce and co-write two programmes about film music from the composer’s viewpoint.
