players we ain't the same, i'm into 'cane & guns

idlewild - "too long awake"
idlewild - "goodnight"
(warnings/promises, capitol, 2005)

those sullen scottish lads (no, not THOSE ones) in idlewild are back at it again. there was much ink spilled on the recording of their latest album, focusing mainly on the addition of a new guitar player and a "classic rock" influence present in new material. apparently, pre-warner brothers REM qualifies as WZLX playlist fodder for roddy & co. all joking aside, it's very easy and extremely lazy to describe the idlewild sound in terms of the athens gang. in fact, prepare to see relentless comparisons as idlewild will be opening dates on the REM european tour and the american music press corps loves regurgitating press releases, one-sheets, and other commonly accepted conjecture. the new platter hit stores on march 7th in the UK, but not here in jesusland. since the new US release date maybepossiblycouldbe in august, this is the bootleg funwrecker premiere, emi-canadian import style. though the album is typical 'wild fair, these tracks exhibit a certain synth/distortion instrumentation against which i am powerless. plus, there's acoustic bonus beats on "goodnight." go forth and mope.

- speaking of moping, steven patrick dropped a live dvd/cd combo on out shores this past tuesday. love that frock, moz. homecomings are never this cool on this side of the pond.

- funwrecker is your primary source for hand-me-down news. (thanks to hardly art & lemon-red for putting shame in my faux-journo game.) for the record, ghost could never retire.

- speaking of journos, lauren 2: electric boogaloo may be coming to a paper near YOU, all day/every day. stay tuned for confirmation/dom p poppin'.

- i did not watch this fourth quarter collapse. instead, i watch young timothy havocwrecker drop a cool 7 points/9 boards (PUT 'EM ON THE GLASS!), and chug buckets of haterade in the first round of the biddy league playoffs.

- this should be in your shopping cart. since raise and mezcal head are stuck in master recording/major label hell, get the official live bootlegs here 4 cheap.

- in the most unpredictable turn of events in recent memory, "engine driver" by the decembos has replaced the amerie/clipse juggernaut inside my skull. you had to figure after morrissey was mentioned, meloy couldn't have been far behind.

i shall return before week's end with funny book banter, red sox season preview, and a well-composed "sin city" review.

xoxo,
funwreck.

p.s. could someone tape the O.C. for me tomorrow night? i'm so serious about it.

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Melissa K. W.
