Looks like a pretty light release week. Perhaps the Missy Elliott album The Cookbook might be worth a listen.

Also, OK, so there was a 70s album by a guy named Jeff Wayne, a double album based on The War of the Worlds, and featuring narration by Richard Burton. They’ve now managed to turn this into a huge SEVEN disc set, with SACD and DVDs and holy cow. Who’s the market for this?

Finally, R Kelly’s apparently getting back to the nasty stuff with TP.3 Reloaded, just in time impress everyone with his wholesomeness as he’s up on kiddie porn charges. Alrighty, then. On the other hand, it’s already #10 at Amazon, so it should help raise him much lawyer money.

    Hi,

    Let me share with you what I’ve been working on as a musician in response to the current state of world affairs.

    My band and I just released an anthology CD of humorous, progressively minded political music that combines our vintage-country/Americana songs with the rock/jazz styled tunes of some other bands I’m affiliated with in the San Francisco Bay Area(California, USA). There’s also a short political farce that I wrote and performed.

    It’s called “The Putrid Minds Anthology: Battle Hymns for the Blue States”.

    We’re “The Sons of Emperor Norton”, and our info, soundbytes, and calendar can be found at

    and even more at

    As well as our originals(political and otherwise), we’re also a live, working band with over 4 sets of classic cover material. We’re up for volunteering our services to any positive(progressive) event.

    Thanks, Joe Kaline “The Sons of Emperor Norton”
