Remember, remember, remember: Fame returns

Clearly my head has been residing up my arse, because I had no idea the Fame movie was being remade. But it has been, and it hits cinemas “this Fall”.

Watching the trailer you kind of get the impression that the new Fame is going to be to High School Musical what 90210 is to Gossip Girl; that is, an opportunistic but kind of understandable attempt by a bygone “brand” to jump on the back of a successful product which owes a considerbale debt to the original incarnation of that brand.

And I’m sure that’s what the tweens will be saying as they exit the multiplex “this Fall”.

Spinnerette's Brody Dalle doesn't just appeal to longhairs anymore

brody_dalle_spinnerette.jpgHer off The Distillers, Brody Dalle (left; click image to enlarge), has long been a “pin-up” for males who think it’s sissy to fancy women who aren’t plastered in tattoos. I was never the biggest fan of The Distillers – “Drain The Blood” aside – so was interested to hear she’d formed a new, slightly more accessible band. They’ve been tinkering away for a while, but you can actually download some of their stuff now.

Empire Of The Sun's "We Are The People" video has feathers in its hair

If you flipped your lid at Empire Of The Sun’s “Walking On A Dream”, and the accompanying Bowie-in-China-style video, you will be pleased to know that their new video for “We Are The People” is similarly flamboyant.
Face paint and bewilderingly silly headgear are still very much in evidence, for which Empire Of The Sun get a big tick. Likewise the fact that part of the video has quite possibly been shot in the same lagoon that bathed the rippling frame of Peter Andre circa his “Mysterious Girl” video.

I wonder if one day – maybe as soon as next week – Brandon Flowers will look back on these photos and wonder if they were a wise decision. There’s no doubt the chap can rock a tuxedo, but at what cost to The Killers’ cred?
Check out the rest of the pics here to see what I mean.

Razorlight's Johnny Borrell doesn't care how much you hate him

razorlight_promo.jpgThis promotional image (click to enlarge) appeared on the back of Observer Music Monthly on Sunday. It’s for Razorlight’s new album, Slipway Fires.
I wonder what the “other” members of Razorlight think about this advertisement. I imagine them separately going into the studio to have their snaps taken, little realising that the finished product will have them not only dressed in black, but also shrouded in darkness. And as they sit posing for the photographer, I imagine the conversation going something like this:
“And Johnny – he’s going to be dressed in black too, yeah?”
“Yeah yeah yeah.”
“It’s just – I don’t see Johnny in black that often…”
“Yeah yeah yeah, he’s going to be in a black hoodie, just like you. Could you just turn your head to the right a bit?”
Poor the other members of Razorlight :(

A few weeks ago my esteemed colleague Mof described his dislike of over-cockneyfied indie chancers, citing Jack Penate as an example of this oeuvre. Now, I like a couple of Penate’s tunes, but I know where he was coming from – and I’m guessing he hadn’t seen gurning pigeon-toed sub-Jam annoyances The Metros at this point. Mof, The Metros are going to make your head spin right off its axis. I’m sorry. Here’s “Education Pt.2″.
