Sep 22, 2014 8:02am | Fact Magazine

For the last ten years, Birmingham’s Digbeth hotspot The Rainbow has been propping up the city’s vibrant music scene.

Now it’s time for a celebration of that fact, and for the rest of 2014 (a massive 16 weeks!) the Rainbow will be running an event called A Decade of Music, and have a line-up of special celebratory parties in its one-of-a-kind clubbing spaces.

In 2014, The Rainbow is run across eight unique venues – from warehouses to hi-tech spaces – and have brought in exactly the kind of help they need to cement their righteous achievement. The sheer ambition of the autumn/winter run is incredible, and they’ll be running Cream Birminghams 8th Birthday, a huge Annie Mac Presents show, 20 Years of Birmingham staple Godskitchen, Gorgon Citys album tour which sees the duo playing live, Hospitality with Camo & Krooked, the 24 Hour Rave Experiment, FACE 5th Birthday with Jamie Jones, Secretsundaze, 10 Years of Shogun Audio, Viva Warriors with Steve Lawler & more.

Two-Thirds Of Nirvanas Original Lineup Reunite At Aberdeen Mural Dedication
Sep 22, 2014 8:01am | StereoGum

Earlier this year, Kurt Cobain’s hometown of Aberdeen, Washington dedicated a day to Kurt Cobain, thus marking the 20th anniversary of his death with a complicated burst of city pride. The results were pretty sad. But Aberdeen is not done honoring Kurt Cobain. The local artist Erik Sandgren created a mural dedicated to Nirvana, and the city unveiled it last month. And on Saturday, Krist Novoselic spoke at the mural’s dedication. That led to the photo you see above (via Grungebook): Novoselic reuniting with original Nirvana drummer Aaron Burkhard. As far as we know, that’s the first time the two surviving members of Nirvana’s original lineup have come together in quite some time.






BBC Radio 4 to air Goldie documentary
Sep 22, 2014 7:46am | Fact Magazine

Has he reached ‘national treasure’ status yet?

The DJ, producer, label boss, actor and orchestra conductor we know and love as Goldie is the focus of a new radio documentary set to air tomorrow (September 23).

Goldie The Alchemist traces the d’n'b pioneer’s story from his difficult childhood to his success as a DJ and subsequent struggle to come to terms with his past. Goldie tells his own story, with contributions from Pete Tong, DJ Fabio, 4Hero’s Marc Mac, Nihal Arthanayake and Dr Anamik Saha.

The documentary goes out at 11.30am tomorrow and you can listen again on BBC iPlayer.

This summer Goldie became the latest artist to put his stamp on Ministry of Sound’s Masterpiece mix series, while next month he’ll help celebrate 15 years of Fabric with a back-to-back set alongside Doc Scott on October 17. [via DJ Mag]

Thom Yorke & Nigel Godrich Tease Mystery Record
Sep 22, 2014 7:41am | StereoGum

Most of the members of Radiohead have been busy lately with solo endeavors. But we learned over the summer that the band was planning to reconvene and record in September. And guess what month it is? Over the weekend, Thom Yorke sent the internet into a tizzy when he posted the above image on Twitter and Tumblr. Radiohead producer and Atoms For Peace member Nigel Godrich shared the same photo of that white vinyl record. And while there’s no actual info in that image, there’s a record sleeve in the background that seems to come from Stanley Donwood, the artist who has collaborated with both Radiohead and Yorke. So we could be looking at a new Atoms For Peace or Thom Yorke solo record, which could certainly be exciting. But we could also be looking at some new Radiohead, which would be something else. Hopefully, we’ll find out soon enough.

The Replacements at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium - 9/19/14

The Replacements did like to mess around, but they've also written some of the best songs of this kind that have ever been recorded, and the Forest Hills show had them playing hit after hit, sounding tight as hell. ("They've never sounded this tight!" exclaimed an older fan sitting next to me who seemed like he had seen them plenty of times back when.) They played just about everything you wanted to hear too. Their three most classic albums, Let It Be, Tim and Pleased to Meet Me, were well represented. But if you're a fan of their earlier punk years, you got "Takin a Ride," "Take Me Down to the Hospital," "White and Lazy," "I'm In Trouble" and a handful of others. And if you're into the more polished latter albums, you got "I'll Be You," "Merry Go Round," "All Shook Down" and "Achin' To Be."
Alternative rock legends The Replacements finally brought their reunion tour to NYC this past Friday (9/19) for a show at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in Queens with well-matched openers The Hold Steady and Deer Tick. Above is an excerpt from our review, which you can read in full along with the setlist and videos, here. Now we've got a set of pictures of all three bands from the show.
