as a Bad Seed starting with
1984's From Her To Eternity,.

and hopes a limited-edition version,

Hall dates last May, will also appeal to longstanding fans.
Mute is planning a heavyweight marketing campaign to back the
album including radio spots, out in Britain May 11.
Sony & Warner's Tie the knot in U.K
Two Industry Mega-liths are consolidating distribution,
a first for competitive members
of the Big 5 distributors. Sony and Warner are merging their
U.K distribution operations in a potentially cost-saving &
ground-breaking tie-up between the two majors. the deal has been 15 months
on the drawing table before being finalized in April.
Big Golden Soul Smog Star Asylum
While Soul Asylum front man Dave Pirner frets
about the commercial potential of the new album
just released on Sony/Columbia, fellow band member Dan Murphy is also
looking forward to the new Golden Smog album fermenting in the works.
Big Star drummer Jody Stevens has joined the quasi super group
and hopefully the band will get a chance to flaunt
their live stuff between the Wilco and Soul Asylum promo machinations.
Because Golden Smog's members have such difficult schedules with their full-time bands,
assembling their long-awaited follow-up to Down by the Old Mainstream
has been quite a chore.
Some recording was done in a
ten-day span more than a year ago, and another week of recording was squeezed
in this past February.
The record's release—slated for late summer or early fall
on an as-yet-undetermined label—depends largely on
the upcoming Wilco and Soul Asylum records: Golden Smog's disc
must be released before or after those albums by at least two months.
After releasing its second full-length disc,
the collective plans to "tour a couple of weeks straight and do some one-offs
here and there, both domestically and abroad," according to Stephens.
Golden smog's mutating line-up currently features the Jayhawks' Marc Perlman and Gary Louris,
Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, Soul Asylum's Dan Murphy, and Geraldine Fibbers' Jesse Green.
"I look for a good time in music," says Stephens, "with no fuss, no egos, and no bad habits. And these guys sure emphasize having a good time."
Jody has another project in the works. This August, he will finally see
the release of the long-awaited Big Star tribute album Big Star, Small World,
which is coming out through Ignition Records. The roster of songs and the bands covering them looks like this:
The album will also feature "Hot Thing,"
- "Back of a Car," Gin Blossoms;
- "Nighttime," Afghan Whigs;
- "When My Baby’s Beside Me," Kelly Willis;
- "Don’t Lie to Me," Juliana Hatfield;
- "Give Me Another Chance," Whiskeytown;
- "Ballad of El Goodo," Matthew Sweet with Chris Stamey and R.E.M.’s Mike Mills;
- "You Get What You Deserve," Idle Wilds;
- "Jesus Christ," Teenage Fanclub;
- "September Gurls," Sister Hazel;
- "Thirteen," Wilco.
the first new Big Star song in three decades, performed by Stephens,
band leader Alex Chilton, and the Posies' Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer.
Stephens says that the same Big Star lineup—with Auer and Stringfellow guesting—will perform a handful of dates
in major urban centers in the fall. Among the cities named: New York, San Francisco, and Chicago.
