Something For Everyone At Reading And Leeds
Music: Posted: 7/4/03 22:38 Author: *End Is Forever* Comments: 19 Comments

Metal? Metallica, check. Nu-metal? Linkin Park, System of a Down, check. Immature pop-punk? Blink-182, Sum-41, check. Something for NME to pleasure themselves over? White Stripes, Polyphonic Spree, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, check. Something new for the kids? Good Charlotte, check. "Who chose them to headline?" band? Blur, check. Ode to nostalgia? Courtney Love, check. Now I just need to wait for the Concrete Jungle stage...

In the meantime check out the website or read the BBC news article.

Sucks To Be Canada
Music: Posted: 7/4/03 12:00 Author: *End Is Forever* Comments: 18 Comments

Okay, so they're barely newsworthy, but the Juno Awards (which appear to be the Canadian equivalent of the Brits) deserve a mention for pure amusement value only. I mean, best songwriter Chad Kroeger? Well at least Celine Dion didn't win anything...

Laugh at the list of winners here.

RIAA Targets Students
Music: Posted: 5/4/03 16:10 Author: *End Is Forever* Comments: 4 Comments

Continuing a great tradition of filing lawsuits against those who can't afford to pay out anyway, the RIAA has launched action against four US students who are alleged to have exploited their campus networks for file-sharing. Rumour has it that the BPI are likely to pull a similar trick in Britain; strongly-worded letters have already gone out to University Vice-Chancellors.

Possibly. Bloody reinstatement of licence, I can't decide which festival to go to now.

New Roskilde Festival Website
Music: Posted: 13/2/03 18:10 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 16 Comments

It's really cool, much better than the old one. A few new acts (QUOTSA, Coldplay (bleurgh)) have also been announced.

(the link to change languages is a bit tricky to find, it's on the think top bar.)

Free MP3 of the week, Swedish music
Music: Posted: 13/2/03 13:08 Author: Funkodrom Comments: Add A Comment!

So... whilst exploring the noise charts on I came across this excellent little ditty. It's by Swedish Black Industrial... er... psycos Mz. 412 and it's called Traynor. They say:

"By pushing the influences from satanic rites and black metal music to the limit, it resulted in "Burning the temple of god", the ultimate crossover between dark ambience and the metal genre. This is True Swedish Black Industrial, and these guys arenīt kidding; this is music to either conjure or exorcise your demons to..."

I say, it sounds like a lot of really loose bowelled farting for three and a half minutes. Another example of 'extreme' music actually being quite tame.
