*[pitchfork.com] Details are still scant, but today BBC 6Music broadcast a clip of an interview with Jack White in which he confirms that, yep, Radiohead did come and record at Third Man Records in Nashville. (Radiohead alluded to the fact at Bonnaroo.) Listen HERE, and read the (tiny) transcript below:
"I don't know how much to tell about. I didn't play with them or produce it, but they came and recorded at Third Man, and I don't know what else they want to be said about that so that's probably all I can say!"
Here's Radiohead's entire Bonnaroo set:
*[punknews.org] In celebration of America's birthday yesterday, The Bronx have their version of "Fourth of July" available for a free download. The song was originally recorded by Dave Alvin (The Blasters, X, The Knitters). With this post on their website, came the promise of a new album early next year.
*[consequenceofsound.net] Following last season’s cover of The Zombies’ “She’s Not There” by Nick Cave and Neko Case, HBO vampire drama True Blood has now fostered the unlikely pairing of Iggy Pop and Best Coast for an original composition called “Let’s Boot and Rally”. The song will be featured on the July 8th episode of the show, but you can stream it now at KCRW’s website.
*[theprp.com] Recent sets by the The Crimson ProjeKct have seen the King Crimson-affiliated outfit joined onstage by Tool drummer Danny Carey. You can watch various fan-filmed footage of the pairings HERE.
