Morning Music Notes – Hunt for Red Octobers
The Beatles have been in the news a lot lately. Yesterday marked their 50th anniversary from when the Beatles played the Ed Sullivan Theatre, changing the lives of themselves and all future musicians after them. To celebrate, we got a cool cover by Arctic Monkeys, who were headlining Madison Square Gardens in New York City.
Alex Turner seemed knowledgable on the Beatles and the facts around their Ed Sullivan performance. He then led the Sheffield band through a slower version of All My Loving. It would’ve been cool if Paul McCartney joined the band, but alas, we’ll take what we can get. Watch it below.

Morning Music Notes
Did Lana Del Rey accidentally let slip that her new album, Ultraviolence, is coming out May 1? Well, yes she did, but I mean, is May 1 real? We shall see. (via NME)
Remember that bizarre ‘celebrity’ boxing fight scheduled between DMX and George Zimmerman? Well, it ain’t happening. Apparently DMX never agreed to the fight, which is a key component of having a fight between 2 people. The promoter pulled the plug, noting problems with Zimmerman, too. (via Pitchfork)
Congrats to Bombay Bicycle Club, who have landed their first Number 1 UK album, with new album So Long, See You Tomorrow. See, I can be nice. (via NME)
Kanye West’s Red October shoe caused West trouble with Nike, ultimately forcing him to leave and sign with Adidas. Well, Nike randomly released the shoes, and the entire stock sold out in 15 minutes. One such pair of shoes is now going to about $16 Million on eBay! WHAT THE HELL! (via Consequence of Sound)
