Massive Attack have announced a new EP – Splitting the Atom to be released on the 5th October which precedes the long awaited new album early next year. The new album this time around sees collaborations with Damon Albarn, Hope Sandoval, Martina Topley-Bird, Guy Garvey and Tunde Adebimpe.
In addition to that I checked out a recent Daytrotter session by a group called Copeland. It isn’t heard to imagine this as The Delays in a chilled out mood. worth checking out the session at http://www.daytrotter.com/dt/copeland-involving-us-in-their-autumn-concert/20030783-3738097.html
According to ateaseweb.com a Radiohead fansite Radiohead have made a new track freely available for downloading and there are strong suggestions of an EP to follow. Downloads can be found here (http://www.waste.uk.com/Store/waste-radiohead-twisted+words.html).
With WebUI’s getting more like thick applications as a result of the increasing adoption and sophistication of AJAX use I came across a website that does a good job of pulling together AJAX lessons, examples and tips tricks called www.ajaxlessons.com. Its a link’d recommedn adding to any web developers list of dev resources.
New Album Out September 8
Epic Records is proud to announce the September 8th release of Howie Day’s highly anticipated third studio album, SOUND THE ALARM. It’s been close to six years since the singer-songwriter released his last album Stop All The World Now which spawned the massive # 1 hit single, “Collide” and went on to sell over 1 million copies worldwide. The album is a stunning collection of the kind of emotionally resonant, melody-minded pop-rock gems that have earned Day a legion of devoted fans over the past 10 years.
Having had a brief business trip to Palo Alto – I had a couple of hours with colleagues in San Fransisco itself. I managed to snag a few snaps before enduring a return flight with United.
Weather as you can see wasn’t great in the city itself although down the coast in Palo alto the weather was lovely. Apparently every July/August the city and coastal areas suffer from regularly fog that can last all day.
More of my photography has been published. This time as part of the support to the Basingstoke Tappers I did some photography at their Summer Show. The photos have then been used by a local paper (Basingstoke Gazette) who published an article about the show. The annoying thing is that they have assumed copyright on the photos given to them for the article and are now trying to sell them depriving a not for profit oranisation of income and failing to accredit the rights to the photos correctly.
