The band is comprised of Agent Number 6 (formerly Tim Crimson of Manplanet) on guitar and vocals, Agent Sureshot on bass and vocals, and Agent X-9 (Mark Mallman's tour drummer) on drums, with synth & drum tracks to add depth to their live show.

International Espionage! self-released their first E.P. in 2007 and have recorded six songs for their next E.P. due out this summer. International Espionage! is also nearing completion of a third music video with director Ryan Schaddelee.

New Album from The Cure

As seen on LimeWire Music Blog:
Acccording to Geffen/Universal, The brand new Cure record, tentatively titled 4:13, will hit stores on Saturday, September 13th, which, opens up potential digital distribution possibilities due to the highly unorthodox release date. No solid tracklist has materialized, but the band plans to release four consecutive singles on the 13th of each month, complete with several unreleased b-sides. The original rumor mill claimed the album might just be a double, with over 30 finished songs on the cutting room floor, but perhaps we'll see these elusive tracks collected throughout the singles, which will be available on 7'' vinyl, limited edition CD, and digital download. The first in this series, 'The Only One' (previously known on recent setlists as 'Please Project'), will be available on May 13th, backed with 'NY Trip.'

Coachella Line Up

Coachella is the town next to the unincorporated area called Thermal, where I lived from 1981 until escaping in 1990...but, on Friday, April 25th, Coachella is an outdoor musical festival held in Indio, a town in the Coachella Valley. Indio means "Indian" Spanish. I attended Coachella Valley High School and we were called "The Arabs". Coachella is a take on "conchilla", which a Spanish word for "little shell". There are millions of these little shells in the sands of this desert. The whole area was beneath ancient Lake Cahuilla long ago. For reference, Palms Springs is also in the Coachella Valley.
I have listed the line-up and my personal interest in the artists; if you see a ink, lick it to hear a track via z-share! I'll keep the mp3s available until they die from lack of attention or if a lawyer bullies me.
I feel bad when I say something "sucks". I realize that every artist tries hard and sacrifices much to produce music. So, if I don't get into something, that means it's not my cup of tea. No disrespect to the hard work. Sometimes it's the sheep-like following that mediocre music gets that pisses me off. I don't dislike the music so much as the fervent followers that think it's so great. My friends know that The Flaming Lips are at the top of the list for being a member of this "well, a lot of other people like it, so it must be good."
cv

Friday, April 25th
* Jack Johnson - I can't stand this guy. Nothing new, nothing to stand out. Just got lucky. Too Starbucks for me. Even my "Oh, hunny, your favorite color is black" Mom bought this guy's cd at CostCo. I think it came with free flip-flops and a bag of real beach sand.

(mp3) The Verve - don't confuse with the Verve Pipe!"The Drugs Don't Work" breaks my heart every time I hear it. A real tear-jerker.

* the Raconteurs - Sadly, I can't begin to explore them because they look like emo nerds. That dude with the black greasy hair and army issued glasses must die. Stuff on the radio has not turned my head.Photobucket

(mp3) The Breeders - automatically cool because Kim Deal is in there. Extra credit for surviving since the early 1990's and super-points for staying with one of the most important labels: 4AD. I do like Tonya Donnelly too, so this is a super-group for us Pixies / Throwing Muses fans. New track from Mountain Battles "Walk It Off" is in heavy rotation here at home.

* Aphex Twin - why does everybody think his work is genius? Sure, I bought a CD, but my life hasn't changed one bit. Over-rated and read he has said in interviews "I rarely listens to any music other than my own." To name an album 26 Mixes for Cash could be cool, distant irony, but I think he acts like someone who hates his job. This is like one of those modern art paintings that makes you say "I could paint that"...Just download Fruity Loops or Acid and make a mess in 10 minutes.

* Fatboy Slim - Never heard a good live set. Hit and miss mixes, but fun stuff. He used play blissful guitar pop with The Housemartins, so you gotta see him for that alone! Here's my favorite Housemartins single, from May of 1986: "Happy Hour Again".

* Tegan and Sara - again? As a good DJ friend commented on their last Coachella appearance "Would it kill these girls to crack a smile?" Zing!

* Serj Tankian

* Goldfrapp - Allison Goldfrapp is hot, talented and smart to change her sound as time goes by. Under-rated!

* the Swell Season

* the National - I like the song "Lit Up", but couldn't find much more than filler.

* Slightly Stoopid - this is embarrassing. Can you imagine saying "I like Slightly Stoopid"? Please! Awful. Why is this band even here?

(mp3) Mum - makes for great background filler for my podcasts. "Green Grass of Tunnel" is my favorite. Why would this act appear live in the heat? Makes no sense at all, cuz this is "chill" music!

* Pendulum

* Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings

* Battles - Is the same band I played the track "Tendency" on a podcast? Kinda vanilla over-all if so. Otherwise, get a real name, cuz it sounds like the band Battles.

* Aesop Rock

* Les Savy Fav - can't find a track I like. Sorry.

* Midnight Juggernauts - YES! Worthy addition to the line-up! Aussies!

* Spank Rock

* dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip

* Diplo

* Redd Kross

* Adam Freeland - Great live DJ, this is peak-hour dance material.

* Santogold

* Jens Lekman - I got the CD and listend once. A lesser Magnetic Fields.

* John Butler Trio

* Vampire Weekend - success based on name alone. Mediocre-core. The Arby's of Right Now.

* Dan Deacon

* SebastiAn

* Black Kids - unlistenable pap.

(mp3) Architecture in Helsinki - I like 'em for the quirky value. There is a lot of variety, and no particular "sound". This is a fun track: Architecture in Helsinki - In Case We Die - 08 - The Cemetary

* Sandra Collins

* Busy P - I just got busy with my pee a minute ago. Don't make me go again.

(mp3) Cut Copy - ALBUM OF THE YEAR. These Aussies are just spot-on every time they record. I cannot recommend them enough. Just hear this: "Feel The Love" from the new album "In Ghost Colours". I am still listening to the first album!

* Black Lips - why's it gotta be black?

* Datarock - can this be good live?

* Professor Murder - lol; product of an early internet name generator.

* Porter - yes, take my luggage to tent 119.

* Rogue Wave

* American Bang

* Luckyiam


Saturday, April 26th
* Prince
* Portishead - the only reason I looked into Trip-hop and became a follower.

But this track is by an American electronic outfit with this MySpace URL: http://www.myspace.com/okcomputerclub

Confused? Try these fine bands: Blue October or April Skies. Band-Name Wars!
I can take it a step further by saying that Computer Club is from Birmingham.
Finally, Computer Club has been played on Like Sugar before. The track was "Snobs" by the UK band, as seen below.

I am In Love With Sarah

PopCast 10 mixing now

Working on PopCast 10. I feel the need to make it special, as it's #10. I think I will put some extra production into it; maybe add in some smart-ass aspects and stupid effects.
I will include a new Long Blondes track "Century" as it lends itself to mixing cuz it's a dance floor track for the kids. Other ideas include the Cribs' Postal Service remix, an old Visage cover song, a gay Gravy Train song, and a fun gay 80's song by Josie Cotton. Maybe some G''n'R' foolishness too. PopCast 10 should represent the fun attitude I have as a DJ, toward music. My taste spans so many genres and years, I can't take myself seriously.

Cover Me on Friday: Depeche Mode; Blind Willie Johnson

Photobucket

This is a reverse of the usual cover song that I post here on Fridays. You've probably heard "John The Revelator" by Depeche Mode or Nick Cave...so here is the song in its original form.

Free Singles from Biker Boy

As far as I can tell, Biker Boy (Sweden) is doing what Baskervilles (Australia) did last year; that is, release a (free-for-a-limited-time) single every month for a year (sans the special art, but with a remix of each track?). So far, January, February and March are out at bikerboy.org. I found April's Song on the Biker Boy myspace page. This month's are free to download from myspace.
