The Von Bondies Lend Their Song to Corey Feldman’s New Movie

Yup yup, even though The Von Bondies seem to have slipped from my radar, it seems as though they are still a working band (sans some eye candy–original member, the flame-haired Marcie Bolen, left the band in 2006), having finished their third album, Love, Hate, and Then There’s You, which is currently without a release […]

Chris Martin Continues Bad Naming Streak with “Viva La Vida”

“Loca” on the side, please! Coldplay has just announced the title of their new album, which is to be called er… “Viva la Vida”, which translates to “Long live life,” a quote from Mexican painter Frida Kahlo.
