Punk warriors The Clash will go all LL Cool J on a new box-set, overseen by guitarist Mick Jones.
The Sound System box-set will feature the band’s first five LPs – that’s The Clash (1977), Give ‘Em Enough Rope (1978), London Calling (1979), Sandinista! (1980) and Combat Rock (1982) – remastered from the original tapes by Jones. The set will also include three CDs of rarities, demos and singles, a DVD featuring previously unreleased footage, and a fresh edition of the band’s iconic Armagideon Time zine. Art direction has been co-ordinated by Clash bassist Paul Simonon, who has elected to design the box in the shape and style of a vintage boombox.
According to Jones, the “concept of the whole thing is: best box set ever”:

Noted chicken enthusiast Beyoncé toasts her maturity in her new single.
Snippets of ‘Grown Woman’ first appeared in last month’s rug-pulling Pepsi advert. In contrast to the lacquered surfaces of The 20/20 Experience, ‘Grown Woman’ sees Timbo on playful and experimental form, crafting an instrumental that’s two parts moombahton, one part Song Of The South. B, aided and abetted by The-Dream, continues to push the warrior queen motifs found on ‘Run The World (Girls)’ and ‘Bow Down/I Been On’.
Note: The-Dream’s also been working with Beyoncé cohort Kelly Rowland. FACT’s review of Beyoncé’s recent O2 jaunt is here. [via Miss Info]

YYYs @ GoogaMooga 2013
We've already posted photos from the first two bands (The Darkness and The Flaming Lips) to play the Great GoogaMooga kickoff concert on Friday (5/17). Here are a set from headliners Yeah Yeah Yeahs who were the only band to actually get to play after sunset. A few shots of Chairlift, who played two different DJ sets that day and who will perform in the same location of the park this summer, are also in this post.
Did you go on Friday? How was your GoogaMooga experience?
Right after playing GoogaMooga, YYYs hopped down to Gulf Shores, Alabama to play the 2013 Hangout Fest on Sunday (5/19).
"About halfway through the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Hangout Music Festival set, frontwoman Karen O took a moment to make a special announcement before playing the band's 2004 breakout single "Maps." "This is dedicated to Stevie Wonder," she called out to the thousands of fans who showed up to catch the Yeah's set. The iconic R&B star was slated to follow the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the Hangout Stage as the weekend's headliner." [MTV]---
Despite not having the most successful event either this year (rain) or last year (lines), a Channel 12 report claims GoogaMooga will be back in 2014. Meanwhile, BV Chicago reports that GoogaMooga might be coming to Chicago in A...

R.I.P. Ray Manzarek
May 20, 2013 5:05pm | StereoGum
We can argue about the musical and cultural value of the Doors, but it would be straight-up inaccurate to classify them as anything less than one of America’s truly legendary rock groups. And I think it’s fair to say, too, that Ray Manzarek was as essential to the Doors’ success as Jim Morrison, maybe more so. Manzarek more or less discovered Morrison, and encouraged him to sing, and Manzarek’s keyboard was absolutely as central to the Doors’ sound as Morrison’s vocals (the Doors never employed a bass player, because Manzarek played those parts on his Fender Rhodes piano). When you’re thinking of a Doors song — any Doors song — I’d be willing to bet you’re just as likely to call to mind the keyboard part as you are the vocal. Of course Morrison died in 1971, at age 27. Manzarek continued to make music in the decades following his bandmate’s passing, most recently releasing a solo album, Translucent Blues, in 2011. Today, Manzarek passed away in a hospital in Germany, of complications related to bile duct cancer. He was 74. RIP.

Manzarek and Jim Morrison met while studying film at UCLA in 1965. The two bonded over their passion of music and mysticism and formed a band. Though they used studio musicians to record their biggest hit – 1967’s “Light My Fire” – Manzarek would actually use a low-end keyboard when the band performed live. It just goes to show how instrumental Manzarek was in creating the Doors’ musical ethos. The Chicago-born Manzarek was the architect of the Doors’ jazz-inflected rock and for that, we salute you, Mr. Manzarek. Rest in peace. Via SPIN:
A-Trak: Let's Talk About Drugs...
May 20, 2013 4:49pm | The Daily Swarm
FYI: MDMA is hot right now. The mainstream hip-hop culture has embraced the drug as a party starter. It almost seems like a requirement that at least one verse of any song must include some reference to molly. Promethazine cough syrup, also very “in” right now. But as much as this lifestyle is glorified – the consequences are many. Lil Wayne has been in and out of the hospital – claiming that it had nothing to do with the purple drank – and we lost Pimp C a few years ago. Also, apparently molly results in sweating profusely, according to Dr. Trinidad James. DJ A-Trak is fine with all the glamorizing of hip-hop’s drugs of choice, but he feels that we should at least have a conversation about it. Via The Huffington Post:
