Music News & Notes

This Is Spinal Tap Again

Spinal Tap is set to return with their new album "Back From the Dead," their first LP since 1992’s "Break Like the Wind," on June 16th. The double-disc set, available for pre-order at Spinal Tap’s Website, features a DVD with track-by-track commentary from David St. Hubbins, Derek Smalls and Nigel Tufnel.


Cat Power Tours

Chan Marshall will make a Cat Power return late this Summer with a string of tour dates opening for the Pretenders.

The Pretenders are touring in support of "Break Up The Concrete," which was released late last year. Even Juliette Lewis is getting in on the action, playing on the tour in support of her upcoming release "Terra Incognita."

There has been no new Cat Power music since 2008's collection of covers titled "Jukebox."


Dando Suit

The Lemonheads’ Evan Dando has sued GM because the company used a song similar to the band’s “It’s A Shame About Ray” in a 2008 commercial, reports. Compare and contrast the two at YouTube.

I did, good luck in court Mr. Dando, I hope that you have a good lawyer.
