The Mountain Goats

The Mountain Goats are one of the more unusual bands to find shelter under the ever-expanding umbrella term indie-rock. Hyper prolific and militantly lo-fi, there are over a hundred Mountain Goats' songs scattered across compilations and label samplers, most of them recorded (by choice) on a department store boom box. Although many musicians have contributed to Mountain Goats releases, by far the person most identified with the outfit is singer/guitarist John Darnielle. In fact, many Mountain Goats' tracks feature only Darnielle's nasal bleat and his primitive, yet frenzied, acoustic guitar. (read more)

The Mountain Goats - All Hail West Texas

Liam a big Charlotte Church fan

Liam Gallagher has revealed he is a big Charlotte Church fan.
The Oasis frontman says he thing the singer has a great voice and he admires her party lifestyle.
He said: "She could be the next Liam. She's got a great voice. She knows how to get hammered and she freaks people out."
However, he wasn't as complimentary about other signers reports The Sun.
Speaking about Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos he said: "He reminds me of f****** Right Said Fred. He's just gone on the Atkins diet and grown his hair! Not my thing at al. I don't like quirky, weird music."

Kate to sing with Babyshambles

Pete Doherty wants Kate Moss to perform with him at the Glastonbury and Homelands festivals.
The model has been in the studio with Pete's band Babyshambles and recorded a duet with him reports The Sun.
A source said: "Kate has got a good voice and is a frustrated rock chick.
"She sang with Pete and Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie at her 31st birthday party earlier this year. But this will be the first time she will have performed in public."

This time something a bit different. Sublime is an alternative band with the music similar to Fishbone or RHCP. Buttler is a typical jam musician and his music sounds like Dave Mathews Band's. Finally, Salmonella Dub Are a Five Piece Dub, Drum and Bass Act from New Zealand. The fans of Air may like it.

As reported by, Weezer, the Killers, Widespread Panic, the Pixies, Liz Phair and Dashboard Confessional are among the sixty artists who will perform on five stages at the 2005 edition of Lollapalooza.

News: Babyshambles, Franz Ferdinand

Babyshambles are to play London's Love Music Hate Racism festival in Trafalgar Square next month.

Pete Doherty's band will join Estelle, MC Lady Sovereign and Terri Walker on the bill, reports

Doherty said: "I don't think you have to be a particularly developed human being intellectually or spiritually to despise racism.
"It may be easy to be complacent, but we need to encourage people to fight racism whether with words or actions. Count me in."

The event is being organised by the Unite Against Fascism and Love Music Hate Racism organisations to bring attention to their Stop The BNP campaign.

The event will take place on Sunday, May 1 and also includes speeches from campaigners, including Tony Benn and Ken Livingstone.

ALEX KAPRANOS has told NME.COM FRANZ FERDINAND hope to release their new album in the autumn – and their new songs are “less cold” and “darker”.

The band have been in their studio in Scotland working on songs for the follow-up to their self-titled debut for most of this year. However, Alex took time out to speak to NME.COM about the band’s progress so far.

He revealed: “We have started recording. Some of the stuff we started recording we will be using but we want to record a lot more. We try and get as many ideas down in the first place. A song might have 28 parts and you keep three of them. Having that huge choice in the first place and then being ruthless about what you reject is how you make decent music. (read more)
