That's the current tour itinerary for Lush, a band that hasn't been on tour since 1996. These poor people are being flung all over the world and they're being forced to play to hipster indifference at Coachella--twice! And we haven't even seen Asian tour dates as of yet. The notion that Lush can get away with not playing a few shows in Japan is blasphemy. I hope someone works it out soon--Lush are huge in Japan.

Will the Kids Pay For a New Stone Roses Song?




It is a noble thing to try and release new music these days:

First it was Noel Gallagher, who in October 2015 told Soccer AM that The Stone Roses were "blooming". Then it was the Roses themselves, who put up a load of posters, containing 16 lemons each, all over Manchester, to tease their live return in 2016. And now, Guardian journalist Ben Green has sparked a wave of new speculation by tweeting the since-deleted cryptic message "SR040316". Not cryptic enough, apparently. Fans writing on dontstopforum.co.uk have since twigged that this could mean an announcement – or even a new release – from the Manchester band on Friday, March 4.


Could it be an album? An EP? Could it be a load of new shows? Could it be a festival date? Twitter seems to think it’s an EP, mainly because the EP rumours have been knocking about for a few days now...

I would settle for a live album if there is no new music. But, come on--we've been waiting for years. Someone's gotta know something...

This is How It Feels




You now have to wait longer for a new Richard Ashcroft track than you do another U2 album. How's that for a world gone mad?

Available in America, this time:
