Dump #3: Shaun Ryder, Sonic Youth, National, MBV in 8-bit, DJ Shadow, Tool, and a Dave Navarro Reality TV Show!
Let's see how much of this stuff I can put together. I'm trying to keep on top of my links by using twitter (which automatically goes to facebook) so if you wanna get this info faster please follow us there (some of the stuff below is probably duplicated on twitter and facebook as well)
I can't believe that this is my first Teenage Fanclub story I've ever written on Excellent Online! I've loved them ever since their 1990 album, Bandwagonesque. And their 13 album is one of my all-time favorites. In the late nineties they left the shredding guitars and went with a more grown up sound and I didn't follow them. But in retrospect I've come to appreciate their latter records (thanks pandora!), and am quite excited about their followup to 2005's Man-Made. Their new record will be called Shadows and is out on Merge Records in June. They also plan on touring the US in September.
