It’s been a hectic last few weeks here at BurnAllZombies: those of you who know us will know why it’s been a bit quiet on the updates, but with 2010 just around the corner, updates will be coming at you so fast, you won’t know what’s hit you.
New Year’s Eve is as good a time as any to look back over some of the best of what 2009 had to over. On that note, we bring you the inaugural Burnt Zombie Awards, a run-down of the finest movies, games, music, TV and comics had to offer this year. Of course, if you disagree, we can discuss below. It’s not as if we’ll send the zombies around if we don’t agree with you…
Even if you weren’t a teenage girl in the early nineties, with Take That posters on your walls, you now like Take That; if you say you don’t, you’re lying. But it’s okay, there’s no shame in liking Take That, a band whose career has covered two decades, spawned some pretty successful careers (and then there’s Robbie Williams too) and feature a man often regarded as one of the best songwriters of today. With the release of SingStar Take That on the PS2 and PS3, there’s a tough decision ahead of you: do you admit to knowing all the words and being able to sing the songs pitch-perfect, or do you embarrass yourself in front of all your friends when they realise you can’t?

With the internet more rife with pirates than a Johnny Depp movie, we all know illegal downloading exists, and Irish ISPs and their reactions to sites like The Pirate Bay have been hitting the headlines over the last few weeks. The music industry in particular are doing their best to clamp down on piracy and illegal downloads, but let’s be realistic: internet piracy will probably never be completely eliminated, at least not until the ultimate cause gets nipped in the bud. So is piracy the result of consumer greed, or in some ways, have the entertainment industry been too slow to move into the digital age and created a situation of their own delayed action?
Muse aren’t the only band with an upcoming album, and they’re not the only band for whome the tracklist for the new album has been released. Daisy is the fourth album from New Jersey outfit Brand New, following up on the lengthy-titled (and beautiful) The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me.
3. At the Bottom
5. You Stole
6. Be Gone
8. Bought a Bride
10. In a Jar
Brand New‘s “Daisy” is due for release September 2009.
Following up on our post a few weeks back about the tracklist to Muse‘s new album, it seemed only appropriate to follow it up with the newly announced artwork for the album, as featured over there on the right. You can even click on it for the full size image…if you’re into that kinda thing.
The image has come straight from the horse’s mouth, having been posted earlier today on Muse’s twitter, @musewire.
Muse’s “The Resistance” is due for release September, 2009.
As the Twitter phenomenon grows from social networking into a news source (we’ll leave the word “reliable” out there for fear of legal action), it seems that bands, actors, directors and writers are leaking information on their new products through the site, sometimes intentionally, and other times wholly by accident.
Coming straight from Muse‘s official Twitter, we’re going to take it that the tracklisting for the upcoming album, “The Resistance” are intentional and verifiable. The tracklist is below.
- Undisclosed Desires
- United States Of Eurasia (+Undisclosed Desires)
- Guiding Light
- Unnatural Selection
- MK Ultra
- I Belong To You (+Mon Coeur S’Ouvre A Ta Voix)
- Exogenesis : Symphony Part I (Overture)
- Exogenesis : Symphony Part II (Cross Pollination)
- Exogenesis : Symphony Part III (Redemption)
Muse‘s “The Resistance” is due for release September, 2010.
Brody Dalle has always been a princess of punk, though her position in the line of succession has been disputed. Alternately disparaged as a poor man’s Courtney Love, others hail her as everything Love could have been, and a rock at the heart of the alternative/punk music scene. Currently married to Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age, divorced from Tim Armstrong of Rancid and front-woman of The Distillers for three albums, there’s no doubt surrounding Dalle’s credentials. It’s been a long time coming, but finally, Dalle releases her new album, this time working under the name of Spinnerette.
Dalle has described Spinnerette not as a band, but her working with “whichever musicians I want to work with at the time,” and the personnel on this record have just as much pedigree as Dalle herself. She is joined by Tony Bevilacqua (formerly of The Distillers), Jack Irons (from Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Pearl Jam) and, most notably, Alain Johannes, who has previously worked with Queens Of The Stone Age and Chris Cornell and who shares some of the song-writing credits here.
