All American Rejects
Real World
new album February 2009
All American Rejects are one of the US's biggest bands of the past few years and they return with a new album in early 2009. 'Real World' is another superb slice of American indie/emo style rock
which should whet the appetite of the converted and win over many new fans. Worth the wait

White Lies
To Lose My Life
new single 5 January
An un-nerving title from London band White Lies debute album of the same name which is released after the single. White Lies have recently completed a sell out headline UK tour and are on the road throughout December with Glasvegas. Filthy Dukes have created an excellent synth-heavy, bass thumping remix, well worthy


Great Stuff...

Michael Franti
Our record of the week this week is 'Hey World Don't Give Up' by Michael Franti & Spearhead, check the vid to this quite utterly brilliant peace anthem here
. In Googling we also came across Franti's journey to Bhagdad to find out face to face how ordinary people there are coping with the ongoing troubles. It's a harrowing story when hospitals are unable to fend off sewerage from a bombed drainage system. See a half hour TV interview with Franti featuring excerpts from his documentary here Hear more from Michael Franti on this website alongside more unique hand picked classics In the Attic on Radio 2xs, 10.15pm til midnight on Sunday 28th December 2008

In a nutshell...
Amazing to see Home Secretary Jacqui Smith smile for the first time, more amazing that it was while she was denying any knowledge of British Anti-Terrorist Police arresting the Tory Shadow Immigration Minister

In the USA:- 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these
are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness; That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it and to institute a new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.'
The French Declaration of the Rights of Man willed this principle to their coming generations: 'When the government violates the rights of the people, insurrection is for them the most sacred of rights and the most imperative of duties.' 'When a person seizes sovereignty, he should be condemned to death by free men.'

Next, the child police
Speed cameras have become a permanent fixture on Britain’s roads, but what would you say if your neighbour had the power to catch you speeding? Under rules to be sent to the Police in the new year, volunteers could be given speed detection equipment to help identify drivers exceeding the speed limit in their area. Persistent offenders will face prosecution under a three strikes and you’re out rule. Volunteers in ‘speed watch’ schemes will be trained to use radar guns and detectors attached to speed warning signs to identify drivers putting their foot down in areas with 30 mph or 40 mph limits. They will also be taught how to use the police computer to check vehicle details. The scheme is surrounded in controversy, following the abandonment of trials which caused neighbourly disputes. Company director Salli Roskilly decided to launch a petition against the initiative after it divided residents in her village of Fowlmere, near Royston. She said: “The final straw was when I walked by one morning and saw that they had schoolchildren on the cameras

This week's Top 40 ...
What's the difference between Take That and other so called 'boy/man bands' (they're all just pop groups really aren't they?) - TT have Gary Barlow, a great songwriter who's ears for a melody and a fine lyric have delivered yet another quality chart-topper. 'Greatest Day' enters at No.1 while Take That's number two (single release only) hit of last xmas 'Rule The World' returns at No.27 ...

Stereophonics run of number one albums has come to an end with their 'Best Of' peaking at number two and their latest single 'You're My Star' failing to reach the Top 40

The new McFly murder mystery is Rod Stewart's 'Stay With Me', the mystery being what's Rod ever done to them, why did they choose to murder that one

Next week watch out for Leona's 'Run', it's the fastest selling download to date
