*[bravewords.com] LED ZEPPELIN legends Robert Plant and Jimmy Page will be guests on In The Studio - The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands - during the week of October 18th. They will be discussing the 40th Anniversary of Led Zeppelin III with professional radio broadcaster and rock musician interviewer Redbeard. Check out a preview HERE (left-hand side - scroll down).
According to Wikipedia, Led Zeppelin III was recorded between January and July 1970 and was released on 5 October 1970 by Atlantic Records. Composed largely at a remote cottage in Wales known as Bron-Yr-Aur, this work represented a maturing of the band's music towards a greater emphasis on folk and acoustic sounds. This surprised many fans and critics, and upon its release the album received rather indifferent reviews. Although it is not one of the highest sellers in Led Zeppelin's catalogue, Led Zeppelin III is now generally praised, and acknowledged as representing an important milestone in the band's history.

*Martin Cohen of Nine Black Alps has his first single coming out on Oct. 18th with his other band MILK MAID! You can pre-order it HERE or listen to it HERE!!
Check out what Suffering Jukebox had to say about the release...
"'Such Fun/Can't You See' is the first release from Manchester's Milk Maid and the forth release on Suffering Jukebox Records. Milk Maid is a band built around the songwriting talents of Martin Cohen, the bassist from Nine Black Alps and the two jams on this single represent his first ever attempts at songwriting... attempts that in our opinion are a bit like someone attempting to play for Manchester United, scoring a hat-trick and ending the night making out with Winona Ryder on the Heathers set... that said; we think he rules.
No-one really sounds like Guided By Voices, but Milk Maid have a similarly laissez faire approach to recording solid gold melodies; throwing away songs most bands would kill for with a kinda swoony arrogance. This single wouldn't sound out of place on the Woodsist label, home of Kurt Vile, Woods and Real Estate...but y'know Suffering Jukebox got in first. Maybe they'll steal Milk Maid of us and we'd end up all bitter and broken.
Such Fun/Can't You See is available on 7" Vinyl and Cassette Single"
*Armistice Live features the "Making of Armistice" documentary that, for the first time ever, takes fans into the writing and creative process of MUTEMATH as they make an album. Armistice Live is available everywhere on October 12th.
