I don't know much about Unkle, aside from that song they did with Thom Yorke a few years back with the crazy bum video, but their new record sounds like it might be worth checking out. According to Wikipedia their new record is due out July 24th in North America, will be called "War Stories" and feature the likes of Josh Homme, Chris Goss, Ian Astbury, some dude from Massive Attack, Autolux and The Duke Spirit. Sounds alright, right? I think so. If this track called "May Day" featuring The Duke Spirit that someone emailed me sounds anything like the rest of the record, I'm right again! Woo! Check it out.
Speaking of The Duke Spirit... they are on this side of the ocean (they hail from that little island with the shitty food called United Kingdom) recording their new full length with Chris Goss out in the desert. The band recently just played an amazing show at Pappy & Harriet's Pioneertown Palace that blew minds and have now decided to bring their rock back to the city of LA on June 12th @ Spaceland (yeah, I know... the only bummer is you gotta go to Silverlake). Oh, and the Duke Spirit have the coolest website of any band out there as far as I'm concerned. Might as well hit their myspace for some tunes and videos... they've got plenty of em!
Also, seeing as how I've been on a movie kick lately... what do you cats think this new Transformers movie is gonna be like? Is it gonna blow? Or is it gonna be a good big dumb action movie like I hope it is? I mean at least this chick is in it. Let's hear some predictions... Also, anyone seen any good flicks lately?
