Morning Music Notes
Jamie XX Does Radiohead Remix
Another gem from Jamie XX – dropped on BBC1’s Essential Mix over the weekend. Jamie finished his excellent 2 hr set with a debut of his remix Radiohead’s Bloom. This track will apparently be released on Radiohead’s TKOL RMX 1234567 album – due to be released this October. Tremendous.

Jesus & Mary Chain Re-Releases Coming
The music industry’s best cash-grab; the re-release. The Jesus & Mary Chain’s 6 studio albums will be re-released with shiny liner notes, b-sides, unreleased tracks, and more! (note: no more). For the hard-core Jesus & Mary Chain fan, this will certainly be positioned as a ‘must-own’. Whatever the reason for the release, you can preview it on the band’s Facebook Page.
Outlawz Smoke Tupac’s Ashes
*What is: a headline you’ll never see on TVO? The guys in Tupac’s crew have claimed that they did, indeed, smoke Tupac Shakur’s ashes at a memorial party held by friends. According to the Outlawz, he requested that his ashes be smoked while listening to his song, Black Jesus.
Let’s assume for a moment, that this is 100% accurate. If I were on my deathbed, and I tell my crew of outlawz, “when I die, I want you to smoke my dangerous ashes, and listen only to my music” and YOU DO IT? That’s a pretty damn good crew.
Red Hot Chili Peppers Timeline
Okay – this one might not be ‘news’, but a pretty interesting read on the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Exclaim has put together a timeline of the band – from uninteresting births to very interesting band turmoil, to fairly interesting present-day.
Alexisonfire Singer Join Gallows
Via Exclaim; while Alexisonfire’s recent breakup meant one thing for City and Colour fans, it meant something different for fans of metal, as their singer, Wade MacNeil was promptly added to UK hardcore band Gallows. That band has wasted no time, starting to release new music only weeks after adding MacNeil.
