Thom Yorke also guest starred on Flying Lotus’ last album, on the track And the World Laughs At You. Killer track and killer album.
Mumford & Sons to Name Second Album Babel, Possibly After The Brad Pitt Movie
Another band we saw this weekend in Portugal at Optimus Alive is Mumford & Sons. They played a few tracks from their upcoming new album, which now has a name. It’ll be called Babel and is out on September 24 (via NME).
Who Turns Off Macca and the Boss?!
Organizers of London’s Hard Rock Calling event in Hyde Park had the difficult decision of cutting off the Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney collaboration due to noise regulations (via Telegraph). They played And I Saw Her Standing There and Twist and Shout, yet never got to thank the crowd, as their mica were turned off. The crowd booed, much to the confusion of Paul McCartney, who has never heard humans make that sound around him. Damn you curfews!
Noel Gallagher to Play Camden Charity Gig
Noel Gallagher will play in Camden in London in August for charity (via Gigwise). You need to head to the XFM or Noel Gallagher websites to win tickets to the August 14 show.
Noel’s brother (apparently he has a brother) Liam’s band, Beady Eye, have begun playing Oasis tunes, specifically ones Noel wrote. Speaking on the subject, he said “Beady Eye have my permission to play my songs and they should do whatever they like,” says Noel Gallagher to The Sun newspaper. “I say he should go around the world, do those songs and fill out the PRS (performing rights) forms.”
