My Bloody Valentine’s cover of MAP REF 41ºN 93ºW by Wire is a song I can listen to over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over
Bolstered by the runaway popularity of his “Lucy Sings” video, Philip Collins returns with a midlife-crisis anthem and a video that, this time around, required more than driving around the block with an out-of-focus camera. An all-star band and a cast of dozens join him for this months-in-the-making filmed entertainment.
If you put members of:
together in a band, you’d probably end up with Cheryl Parker’s 116th Dream, a collective making its live debut August 9 at Cat’s Cradle in Chapel Hill as part of the Be Loud Sophie Foundation benefit. Tickets available wherever you buy your Cradle tickets.

Casting is over for Last Train to Memphis, a film based on Peter Guralinick’s towering 2-volume biography of Elvis Presley. Go here for more info.
If the film is anywhere near as good as the books, this should be an amazing tale of the rise (and presumably fall) of the King of Rock and Roll.
Denny Tedesco was on a recent episode of Marc Maron’s legendary WTF podcast, discussing his documentary film THE WRECKING CREW. This film, much like the MUSCLE SHOALS doc, one that will blow your musical mind. You should see this documentary, as it is a fantastic look into the true story of the Los Angeles studio musicians who helped create an inordinate amount of pop hit records. Click the pic above to check out the episode.
WHO WERE THE WRECKING CREW? A loose confederation of studio musicians who played on tons of the music you love. Songs by the Beach Boys, Sonny and Cher, Nancy Sinatra, The Byrds… why, here’s just a small sampling of the records they helped create:
Windy by The Association
Good Vibrations - the Beach Boys
California Dreamin’ - the Mamas and the Papas
These Boots Were Made For Walkin’ - Nancy Sinatra
Mr. Tambourine Man - the Byrds
River Deep Mountain High - Ike & Tina TurnerThe amazing list continues here.
BIG STAR: LIVE IN MEMPHIS 1994 FILM COMING
When Big Star reunited in October 1994, some friends and fans decided to capture the show for posterity. In what seems a prime example of his contradictory manner, Alex Chilton asked them, “Why do you want to do this?”
From the article:
The result is apparently the only complete Big Star concert on film. What’s more, it also may be the only professionally shot full-length Chilton concert available. The filmmakers hope film festivals and film and music distributors will be interested in bringing the concert to a wider audience after its Memphis screening.
The film is debuting in August in Memphis, and you can read all about it at The Bloodshot Eye.
