British Fans Campaign For Nirvana To Be This Year’s Christmas #1

It’s been a longstanding honor over in the UK to be the top song in Britain on Christmas Day. But in 2009, a Facebook campaign changed that, with a successful push to get “Killing In The Name Of” by Rage Against The Machine to the X-mas #1 spot.

Well this year, Brits are trying to make magic happen again and get Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” to the top spot on the 20th anniversary of Nevermind.

According to NME:

A Facebook campaign has been launched in a bid to help Nirvana‘s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ to the UK’s Christmas Number One spot ahead of the winner of this year’s X Factor.

The ‘Nirvana For Christmas No. 1′ group, which has nearly 10,000 members, has been set up as a response to what they perceive as “bullying” tactics by the reality show after they named one of this year’s acts after a children’s charity and refused to change it.

Our luck goes out to the Nirvana Facebook camp in their earnest goal of trouncing The X-Factor.

Stream The New Tom Waits Album, “Bad As Me”

According to Pitchfork:

If you’re on the Tom Waits mailing list, today you’ll receive a unique code (plus five codes for five friends) to hear a stream of the album on the Bad as Me website. If you’re not on the mailing list, you can head to the album’s website and request to join, after which you will receive an invite to the “listening party.”

Bad as Me is released October 25 in the U.S., and October 24 in Europe via Anti-.

I guess that video he posted a couple months back about a private listening party weren’t kidding.

Watch Jack Black In The New Stephen Malkmus Video

Here’s something I didn’t expect to see today (or ever). The new video for the Steve Malkmus and The Jicks song “Senator” features Jack Black as the Senator, snorting coke and kissing babies. Also, Gary Cole pops up doing his Gary Cole thing.

The Watchmakers Make Music Less Misanthropic, More Catchy

The Watchmakers latest release, The Misanthrope, is a cordial piece of pop-rock as scatterbrained as it is instrumentally- catchy. This isn’t a bad thing, necessarily.

The very first track, “Re: Split My Side,” front-loads the entire affair with the albums best track. It’s a catchy, sharp song with hooks to spare and every member on-point and tight. The album remains tight up to about the halfway mark when you can feel the band loosening up. For some bands this could be a good thing; but in this instance them getting loose means they start getting a bit sloppy.

Instrumentation is still tight, but you get the feeling that this would have made a better EP than a full-album. The whole middle of the album feels like filler between an excellent front and book-end.

But good news for you is the album is FREE to download over at Bandcamp, so even if you like one song, The Watchmakers win.
