    Durutti Column To Release Tony Wilson Tribute Early 2010

    I fucking hate mondays. I hate them so much that I'd rather not participate in them at all, but this morning was cool cause while I was driving with one hand/tweeting/facebooking/smoking in shitty traffic, I came across the following news: Manchester post-punk act The Durutti Column will release and perform A Paean to Wilson - a tribute to Factory Records co-founder and Hacienda nightclub manager Tony Wilson - in January next year.

    Sketch for C4’s Summer: Buzznet, Warped Tour, and The Durutti Column

    Throbbing Gristle Announce Live Dates in 2008, with Expert Non-chalance

    No, Expert non-chalance isn't a fucking band, douchebags. It's the air that surround the Throbbing Gristle myspace bulletin announcing two confirmed live Throbbing Gristle dates within the next month. I'm not fucking kidding.
