- Spoon announces a new album that is scheduled to be released in January.
- In the long line of re-releases The Clash are set to do just that with a 30th anniversary edition of London Calling. Again, it’s old, so I’ll let it pass without comment.
- The various member of Blur go back to what they do when Blur isn’t around: Music, law, and cheese.
- The Strokes’ Nikolai Fraiture finishes 23,347th in the New York Marathon which is about 20,000 places ahead of me, if I did that sort of thing.
- The Cribs announce 3 shows in the States for next week. In a shocking reversal, I’m not bitter about the fact that I won’t get to see them.
- NME get’s into the Top 40 gambit. Yet another list of things I don’t listen to for the most part.
- David Tennant will supposedly star in a court room drama next year. However it’s an absolute certainty that he’ll be hosting Never Mind the Buzzcocks’ Christmas Special, so it’s all good.
- A review of And Another Thing… the fan fiction sequel to Mostly Harmless.
- Julian Casablancas – Phrazes for the Young
That’s it until next week. Enjoy Bonfire Day and while burning things, might I suggest listening to the 1812 Overture?

**I could have tortured you, but I was feeling generous.
