Morrissey gives Magic Mikes Joe Manganiello permission to make a Smiths film
May 4, 2016 12:26pm | Fact Magazine
It’s not a biopic, but Shoplifters Of The World is definitely a Smiths film.
Joe Manganiello (best known for Magic Mike and True Blood) has announced his next project is a film centered around the Smiths and he’s received Morrisseys blessing to move forward and use the band’s catalog in the soundtrack, Showbiz411 reports.
Part of why Morrissey has approved of the film (and not others) is because Shoplifters Of The World is not a biopic. The film stars Manganiello as a radio DJ named Mickey and centers around a 1987 incident where a Smiths fan held a Denver radio station at gun point in response to the band’s breakup. The story involves the fan forcing the station to play only Smiths songs on repeat, making soundtrack (and Morrissey’s permission) essential to the film.
It worked out due to screenwriter Stephen Kijak’s previous relationship with Morrissey, a connection that Manganiello told Collider helped them strike a deal over song usage.
“Morrissey agreed to give us the catalogue for a nice, affordable fee. Well, it’s not cheap, by any stretch of the imagination, but we have Morrissey’s blessing to move forward with a the Smiths project,” he said. Manganiello, a big fan of the Smiths, is excited to move forward.
“Its just really...

Roland Emmerich to destroy more things with Battle of the Midway film
May 4, 2016 12:17pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Look, we all know that director Roland Emmerich has a wee habit of blowing things up and detailing all sorts of on-screen destruction for the popcorn munchers. Independence Day, Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow, and 2012 are all fine examples of this eccentric fetish of his, and one that has yet to wear off, as he’s about to double down on some more extraterrestrial chaos this summer with Independence Day: Resurgence.
Yet, wedged between Godzilla and The Day After Tomorrow lies one of his better films, 2000’s Mel Gibson-starring The Patriot. Sure, the Revolutionary War blockbuster was more of a revenge fantasy film than a historical meditation on patriotism, but it’s nonetheless a broad departure from his signature style, an accessible war epic that thrived from solid performances and intriguing tension. Which is why his next project has us intrigued.
As Variety reports, Emmerich wants to make a film about 1942s Battle of the Midway. The producer and director announced his plans Tuesday night prior to a 20th anniversary screening of Independence Day. We’d like to imagine he sounded like a cross between Bill Pullman’s President Whitmore and our country’s late President Kennedy, pounding his fist on the podium and screaming, “I will take us to Midway!” Here’s what he actually said, tho...

Heres Mac DeMarcos sun-soaked Prince cover
May 4, 2016 11:56am | Chart Attack
Weeks after his death, the world is still mourning the loss of Prince. Fans are reflecting back on his legacy, people are mowing football field sized love symbols into their farm fields, and artists are paying their tributes with one Prince cover after the next. Well, now it's Mac DeMarco's turn. He's released a his own rendition of "It's Gonna Be Lonely," from Prince's 1979 self-titled.
Performing with his band by the shore of Brooklyn's Far Rockaway Beach, Mac sticks pretty close to Prince's original, opting to gently colour it with his own sun-soaked indie rock vibe that, now that I think about it, owes quite a bit to Prince.
There's also a dude dancing in the background with a leather sex mask on, because, you know, it's Mac DeMarco. That same mask made an appearance a few weeks ago in the video for his James Taylor cover. Seems to be his thing lately.
Prince made a real playlist for his fictional house party on the show New Girl
Mac teased the release of this cover last week on Instagram, writing: "We lost a true hero of mine the other day. Although it's sad, I'm sure he's ripping a hot solo right now in the next dimension. RIP. Got a #treat in his #honor #comingsoon"
Hip-Hop Evolution tells the origin story of hip-hop from the inside out
May 4, 2016 11:39am | Chart Attack
Hot Docs is North Americas largest documentary film festival. This week, we're zooming in on the festival's music-related films.
Hip-hop has come a long way from its humble beginnings in The Bronx. Today, the genres most successful artists have reached superstar levels of fame, and for many fans, recalling a time when hip-hop wasnt at the forefront of pop culture would be a difficult task. Hip-Hop Evolution, directed by Darby Wheeler, investigates the social, political, and economic landscape that gave birth to the genre in hopes of bringing this knowledge back into the scenes collective consciousness.
In the first installment in the four-part series courtesy of Banger Films, Canadian hip-hop artist and connoisseur Shad takes a trip to New York to speak with some of the folks who laid the foundation for the artists who are doing it today. Hes charismatic and entertaining throughout, and his love for the music is clear as he speaks to the godfathers of the genre Grandmaster Flash, DJ Kool Herc, Big Daddy Kane, Melle Mel, and Russell Simmons. Each share their own insights into how hip-hop began, what kind of role they played in its evolution, the techniques they used, and where they got the inspiration.
Hip-Hop Evolution is more than a mere list of names and dates though. The film does a great job painting a vivid picture of what exactly was going on in late 70s New York, using vintage footage, firsthand accou...

Beck covers Princes Raspberry Beret watch
May 4, 2016 11:25am | Cosequence Of Sound
Live tributes to Prince have become concert staples in the weeks since his passing. Everyone from Beyoncé to Bruce Springsteen has turned in their ode to the Purple One, and now you can add Beck to the list.
During his headlining performance at the Beale Street Music Festival, Beck delivered his cover of Prince’s classic “Raspberry Beret”. It’s a song he’s performed on multiple occasions over the years, and one he even credits as inspiration for his own track “Debra” off Midnite Vultures. (A fact that makes Prince presenting Beck with the 2015 Grammy Award for Album of the Year for Morning Phase perhaps even more meaningful.) Bathed in purple light while on stage Sunday evening, however, it never felt more right.
Check out the performance above. You can also revisit past Prince tributes from the likes of My Morning Jacket, DAngelo and Maya Rudolph, David Gilmour, Janelle Monaé, Sufjan Stevens, LCD Soundsystem, and Pearl Jam.
