BILLY CORGAN WANTS TO REINVENT THE ALBUM EXPERIENCE

From the SXSW website:

We’ll discuss key themes from the new book as it relates to the music industry. The focus will be on changing the methods that artists use to deliver music by re-inventing new systems that can work hand in hand with the art they created. The goal will be to put the art of music back to the forefront by ignoring the continual need of the music industry to standardized systems to promote and sell music in an era of constant change.

Billy will also discuss how social media and technology will play a part in the release of their new album Oceania and share his vision for reinventing the album experience overall.”

MARK LANEGAN DISCUSSES THE SEATTLE SCENE

Here’s an excerpt from Under the Radar‘s new interview with Mark Lanegan.

Before you were a solo artist you were in seminal band Screaming Trees. Reflecting back, what drew you to the scene in the beginning?

Well it’s like anybody, I was a fan of music and listening to records. I enjoyed playing my own music and eventually I came into contact with some guys who actually had a band and it sort of went from there. But it definitely started because I was a fan of music.

Tell me about being part of what seems, from the outside, a really tight knit environment and subculture.

Well for one thing I never felt part of a community. I had some close friends who were also in bands and there were a lot of bands from a really small city who became really popular and that was weird. But I was on the road for a lot of that time you know it’s not like everyone got together and barbequed or anything.

Did it ever feel like any of you guys had a shared vision of any kind?

No. I mean like I said I had friends who were in bands and occasionally we would play on each other’s records but it’s just the same as it is now.

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS GUITARIST DEAN DELEO CALLS INTO PHILADELPHIA RADIO STATION

Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo called into WMMR on Monday, he was in Philadelphia visiting his girlfriend. He said he’s been learning drums and might want to enter the station’s Building The Band contest. The DJ’s were so stupid that they didn’t ask Dean anything about the progress on STP’s new album or the Core 20th Anniversary reissue/tour.
