Quick News

The Screaming Females will release their new album in April. The yet-to-be-titled album was produced by Steve Albani. Read our 2010 interview with the band HERE.

Being the king of narcassism, Morrissey released his top 10 list of his Top 10 Albums that he has released as a solo artist and with The Smiths. Take a look at the list below, which he calls "OF WHICH I AM MOST PROUD":
1) Years of Refusal
2) Ringleader of the Tormentors
3) You are the Quarry
4) Vauxhall and I
5) Strangeways, Here We Come (Smiths)
6) Rank (Smiths)
7) Louder Than Bombs (Smiths)
8) Bona Drag
9) Southpaw Grammar
10) Your Arsenal

Speaking of Moz and The Smiths, longtime Smiths fan Noel Gallagher has of course, backed the band for a reunion. Noel spoke to Sky News Australia and said ""The one everybody would like to see is The Smiths and they say it's not going to happen but they said the Roses wouldn't happen and they said Led Zeppelin wouldn't happen." Noel then commented on fellow Manchester legends, Stone Roses plans for their 2012 reunion and said "I'm happy for them, it's great for the fans. It's going to be great, what can I say?"

NOW speaking of reunions some thought would never see...Slash tells Esquire Magazine that he is "trying to put the feud with Axl Rose to rest." Slash, along with his fellow and former members of Guns N Roses are set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 with Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Slash says to Esquire "The split between Axl and I was a quiet one. But because there was so much attention on the break-up - and are we going to get back together - it got built up into this monster that led to a kind of animosity that wasn't the focus for me. Neither one of us wants to be down each other's throats for no reason. At this point, I'm trying to put it to rest." Maybe we will see the original GNR link-up for the special Rock and Roll Hall of Fame one-off gig.
