Mr Bungles debut album to be reissued on vinyl
Sep 18, 2014 9:39pm | Fact Magazine

The highly sought-after debut album from Mike Patton‘s cult avant-metal outfit Mr. Bungle is getting a reissue.

Earlier this year we announced that group would be starting an official archival campaign following the sale of a series of bootlegs and unauthorised reissues. Whilst we wait for the band to start rolling that out that programme, archival imprint Music On Vinyl have stepped in with a fresh pressing of the band’s classic debut. Mr. Bungle. Originally released in 1989, the album provided a dizzying ride through an eclectic mixture of metal, funk, ska and free jazz.

The first 2000 copies of the new package will arrive on purple transparent vinyl. The album has been expanded to a double LP edition as the compressed nature of the early, single-vinyl versions “had a rather dull dynamic sound as a result.”

Mr Bungle fans can expect the first band-approved reissues in 2015 as the demand for the avant-metal troupe’s back catalogue continues. Check out Robin Jahid’s in-depth run down on “Mike Patton’s greatest band” here.

Tracklist:

Side A:

1. Quote Unquote
2. Slowly Growing Deaf
3. Squeeze Me Macaroni
4. Carousel

Side B:

5. Egg
6. Stubb (A Dub)
7. My Ass is On Fire

Side C:

8. The Girls of Porn
9. Love is a Fist
10. Dead Goon



Lower Plenty (mem Total Control) releasing an LP on Mexican Summer (stream it), playing Baby's tonight; WIFE play after
Sep 18, 2014 8:31pm | Brooklyn Vegan

We already mentioned that Skygreen Leopards and J Fernandez have new material and tours hitting NYC's Baby's All Right pretty much as we speak, but what we didn't mention is so do Australia's Lower Plenty who are also on tonight's bill. They share members with Total Control, UV Race and Deaf Wish (who also have North American dates coming up) and make kinda-psychedelic folk on their new album, Life/Thrills, which comes out next week (9/23) via Mexican Summer. You can stream that in full (via Stereogum) below. Tickets will be available at the door for tonight's show.

After that show, Baby's hosts a Junglepussy show (tix also at door), and THEN hosts a third show with WIFE at 11 PM. WIFE is the Tri Angle-signed electronic project of James Kelly, guitarist/vocalist of the now-defunct metal band Altar of Plagues. It's a last-minute one-off while he's in NYC after the two Bear In Heaven shows he opened this week (pictures of MHOW coming soon) and is FREE.

Stream the Lower Plenty album below...

Controversial Aaliyah biopic gets November release date
Sep 18, 2014 8:08pm | Fact Magazine

The long-delayed Aaliyah biopic has finally been given a release date. Aaliyah: Princess of R&B will air on November 15 on the USA’s Lifestyle network.

The late songstress’ estate has been fighting the release of the biopic claiming that the made-for-TV film is too small of a project. Aaliyah’s family have stated that whilst they are not against a major studio film depicting the singer’s life, they will block any attempt to use her music in this film. A quote from Aaliyah’s estate said the singer deserves to have a tribute much more grand than a television network debut that wont even consider the perspectives of those who were closest to Aaliyah.

Controversy surrounded the production earlier this year when Disney starlet Zendaya quit filming after heavy criticism regarding her casting in the lead role. She was replaced by Nickelodeon‘s Alexandra Shipp. Aaliyah: Princess of R&B is based on Christopher Farley’s biography Aaliyah: More Than a Woman. The film has been executive produced by prominent hip-hop media personality and former Hot 97 host Wendy Williams.

Aaliyah passed away in 2001 in a plane crash in The Bahamas. She was only 22. [via Complex]

The CD Still Rules In Japan
Sep 18, 2014 6:37pm | StereoGum

It seems like Japan is the only place where the CD still reigns supreme, at least compared to the dire market for the aging platform in the rest of the world. According to a new report from The New York Times, CDs still make up about 85% of album sales in the country, compared to just 57.2% in the U.S. market. The article speculates that the reason why Japan is still so attached to CDs is a business culture that “still views the digital business with suspicion” mixed with a market that values collectibles, which is why greatest hits compilations still do so well in the Japanese market. The CD market is also lucrative for record companies in the country because of retailer restrictions that limit the price of new CDs to more than $20.

This video of the Chuckle Brothers dancing in the studio with Tinchy Stryder is everything
Sep 18, 2014 5:44pm | Fact Magazine

The Chuckle Brothers have been in the studio with Ruff Sqwad.

We repeat: the Chuckle Brothers have been in the studio with Ruff Sqwad. UK readers of a certain age will be familiar with the Chuckles: the duo’s BBC show ChuckleVision has been rolling for over 20 series, and they appear sporadically in the news, usually in the context of a sex scandal or high court trial.

Anyway, they were recently in the studio with Ruff Sqwad’s Tinchy Stryder and Dirty Danger “laying down some cool stuff” [their words], as evidenced in the selfie above and the video below. Incredible scenes.
