Morning Music Notes – Former Rock Singer Liam Gallagher’s Store Gets Looted
Muse to Begin Recording New Album
Now that Matt Bellamy is done making babies with Hollywood actresses, Muse are ready to go to the studio to record a new album, starting this September (via Gigwise). After self-producing their latest effort, the band gave no indication about the direction or scope of their forthcoming effort. They will continue their epic tours, however.
“We’re always going to be the kind of band that want to get out and play live,” said bassist Chris Wolstenholme. “As the years go on there’s that temptation to cut the touring down less and less but we still love playing live.”
Easy to say when you’re not in your 40s though.
Pretty Green Ain’t So Pretty
The riots and looting that started in London this past weekend continue to spread to other parts of the country. Indie record supplies were damaged by the fire in a London warehouse earlier this week. Now the latest musician affected is none other than mouthy Liam Gallagher. His clothing line, Pretty Green, had a store in Manchester ransacked by looters (via NME).
“To add insult to injury, Sky News described the ex-Oasis/current Beady Eye frontman as a “former rock singer”.”
I guess Sky News has heard the Beady Eye album as well!
iPad + Pillow =
Are you sick of your iPad case’s jagged edges stabbing your hands or legs as you play Angry Birds? What, you don’t have an iPad?? Use your imagination. How about instead of a proper hard case, you could have a soft pillow with an iPad embedded inside of it, making resting it on your legs as soft as can be. If you get tired of not making phone calls on the iPad, you can simply flip it over and go for a nap. Or put it on your coffee table and go for a nap with your normal pillow like the rest of the world, but I digress. Check out the product video for the ePillow (not the iPillow) below.
