In case you haven't noticed, early next month mark The Beatles' 50th Anniversary in America. The two surviving Beatles members, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, will likely 'come together' on David Letterman…
Coincidentally, we are also celebrating the 200th episode of W♥M Radio.
Our guests Vu, John, and Emily, discussed:
Rolling Stone #1200 (16 Jan 2014)
Rolling Stone LLC
Itunes has a whole page on The Beatles, touting Beatles music on "iTunes Radio". You can buy their entire discography for a pittance of $120.
A lot of bands that I grew up in the early 90s are riding that nostalgia train, which I really don't have a problem with. I was lucky enough to have caught them the first time around, so seeing them in their current state, some twenty years later, I can really appreciate them now.
So I would say that since 2010, there this might be the decade of the 90s revival bands. Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Green Day, Eve 6, Garbage, Limp Bizkit, NIN, My Bloody Valentine, Pavement, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Roses, Blur, oh so many bands to name, are all giving it a last hoorah. Some people are saying they sold-out or cashing in, but who cares? I love it, and I think it's great for both fans who caught them the first time around and those who were too young to have seen them.
Gene Reissue Flyer
All of Gene's albums are being re-released in double disc deluxe CD edition on February 7th, 2014, via Demon Music Group. I may have mentioned that they were all on vinyl, but the fact is only Libertine is on vinyl since they own the legal rights to it. Also, unfortunately, if you live in the US, you have to import this, as their release rights only extends to the UK.
To celebrate, there is a listening party at Camden Barfly in London, February 6th, 2014. London, can you wait? Not for Martin Rossiter, apparently. His name is clearly not mentioned on the promotional flyer, indicating that Steve Lamacq will be doing a Q&A with the band.

NOTE: You can tell I was still trying to get the hang of recording audio for the podcast. I experimented with various audio recording software, but eventually picked Call Graph because it's free and it's reliable.
