I love Sinead O'Connor. Probably not as much as she loves Bob Dylan, but I have been obsessed with her songs for a long time now. A few years ago, she released How About I Be Me (and You Be You) .…

O'Connor will be in America to do a series of residency dates in November 2013. Originally the tour was to take place in 2011, but that was quietly canceled due to various personal reasons. See complete tour dates on our previous article.

We love B&S and GHTP, it's only too bad they're only playing big festivals at the moment.
08/30/13 "Zurich Open Air"
09/01/13 "End Of The Road Festival"
Ryan is gutted that he could not attend the London premier of the GHTP Musical Film, but we have an article on the Los Angeles premier. Apparently Stuart Murdoch's wife is preggers, according to the report.
Jennifer writes that the film was "Stuart’s story of the forming of Belle and Sebastian", so if you love B&S, it's definitely worth looking into.
As for the rest of God Help the Girl:
Asya who appeared on GHTP is currently in Chaos Chaos, but previously in Smoosh.
Neil Hannon (aka Divine Comedy) who appeared on the GHTP album is in a project called The Duckworth Lewis Method. Their new album Sticky Wickets came out last month, July 2013.
Ryan tries to forget t.A.T.u. rather unsuccessfully. No idea what the two Russian girls are up to these days, but Vu is still in love with Julia Volkova.
Apparently there was a t.A.T.u. reunion four or five years ago. Then as recently as in last year, in various interviews Julia and her t.A.T.u. partner Lena Katina does not keep in contact. That's is untrue, apparently the two will team-up once more to play Kiev (Ukraine) on September 27th, while Lena is playing Hangar 110 in Sao Paulo on November and Cologne in Germany October 5-6th.
Julia recently appeared in a few singles in 2012: Lyubov Suka/Back to her Future and Любовь-Сука (feat Dilma Bilan). She also appeared in a film called "Zombie Fever". Lena will be releasing a new solo album in 2013.
The impossible to find Cloud band has an album called Comfort Songs that Ryan really loves. The album came out last week (August 5th) via Audio Antihero Records.
Song of the show is "Stomach Pit" from the album, which you can find more information on their bandcamp.
Bonus: XBONE or PS4? Cherie Currie from the Runaways is a 'cherry bomb'. Red Hot Chili Peppers could have been called Tony Flow And The Miraculously Majestic Masters Of Mayhem, or as Ryan would have it as TFATMMMoM.
