Boring News and Straight "Gossip"...
(to be updated whenever I get a chance... or find out something cool...)
The Eels are releasing an exclusive live CD for only $9.99... Navigate the Artist Direct site for ordering instructions...
Beck is also releasing a B-Sides collection on his website... Most of the tracks are easy to capture if you look hard enough, but there may be some tough finds on it... Updates are regularly posted on his site...
Pearl Jam is working on a new DVD... Documenting the Binaural tour, the DVD is said to have concert, backstage and interview footage.  They are also releaseing albums from 45 of the tour dates... the first half will be availible via the Pearl Jam webpage sometime in Feburary, with the latter half due in March or April... The first half may only be offered to fan club members...
Weezer finally released a new song... "The Christmas Song" is only available on the KROQ Slim Santa Christmas CD.  The CD is sold out, so start checking EBay.   The track is excellent and well worth whatever price.  The CD also has some pretty funny Santa inspiried spoofs... I have heard that the new single for their upcoming April release has been sent to stations already, but, alas, I have not heard it...
Syntax Records is offering a really cool package for rap fans... The Fan Pack (or something like that)!!!  For about $50 you get four CD's, a hat, a shirt, stickers, posters, promo materials, ect...  Plus, the folks at Syntax are really nice... So... Uh... Yeah... buy their stuff.  Most of their acts are in the vein of Wu Tang and the like...
News Flash! - I cannot spell.  Piece out...
