Vince Herman To Open Moonshine Still Dates

Moonshine Still is excited to announce that Vince Herman (lead singer of Leftover Salmon) will be opening each of their shows in the first two weeks of November. There is chemistry between both Vince and Moonshine and when the two perform together magic is sure to happen. The tour will have them playing from North Carolina to Florida including two headlining festival shows with Vince performing as part of the band (Sweetwater Fest in Milledgeville, GA and Down on the Farm in Tallahassee, Fl).

Formed in 1996 in Macon, GA, Moonshine Still (MsS), is a nationally touring 6-piece band that has garnered a large grassroots following with their unparalleled live performances and high-tech intelligent light display. These new sons of the South have a full force sound that is large enough to fill arenas and, at times, subtle enough to make the whole room quiet with anticipation. Playing collectively as a unit, Moonshine Still takes on many different styles of music keeping everyone on their toes not knowing what kind of style they will go into next. Be it their harmonious jams with stunning guitar and keyboard solos, the spirit of Georgia churches, Electronic TripHop, or a soulful Roots Rock with vocal rises.

Radiohead Commits TV Clips To DVD

Radiohead’s official Web site will be the exclusive distributor of the DVD “The Most Gigantic Lying Mouth of All Time,” featuring 24 short films previously broadcast on the band’s Radiohead.tv Web site in conjunction with the 2003 album “Hail to the Thief.” The DVD is expected to begin shipping around Dec.

“Everyone was working themselves into a froth,” Radiohead vocalist Thom Yorke writes on the band’s site. “They told us they could get us our own station. It was very exciting. We were going to take over the airwaves. So we set about putting together some television. We got lots of tapes from a request we put on our Web site. Lots. Lots and lots. We also generated some television of our own to avoid going stir crazy in the studio.”

“Now you can watch it when you want, and maybe actually see it properly as well,” he continues. “It contains music from ‘Hail to the Thief’ etc., and all sorts of other stuff from us… videos you may not have seen, and unreleased music that isn’t out anywhere else.”

Radiohead played just one North American show this year at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival but has already been mentioned as a possible headliner for the prospective Field Day 2005 festival, which is being eyed for July at a site about 45 miles outside of Albany, N.Y.

Free Foo Fighters Sets To Bookend Debate

The Foo Fighters have scheduled a pair of free performances to take place before and after the upcoming final debate between the major candidates for the U.S. Presidency. The sets will take place tomorrow at the Arizona Democratic Party’s Debate Watch Party in Tempe Beach Park.

Tickets for the free show are available via Democratic candidate John Kerry’s official Web site. There is a four-ticket limit per request. The campaign staff is also seeking volunteers for the event through the request page.

Earlier in Kerry’s campaign, Foos frontman Dave Grohl participated in rallies in Wisconsin, Iowa and Missouri, where he performed acoustic sets. He has said that he decided to take part after learning that President George Bush’s re-election campaign had been playing Foo Fighters songs, including the band’s 1997 single “My Hero,” at their rallies.

Grohl and the Foo Fighters have not been on the road, but are taking a break from recording their fifth album to perform at the Kerry rally. As previously reported, the release will likely boast one acoustic and one electric disc.

The Beatles First Four Albums Featured In New Box Set

The Beatles’ first four U.S. albums — “Meet the Beatles,” “The Beatles Second Album,” “Something New” and “Beatles ’65” — will be bundled together in the boxed set “The Capitol Albums Volume 1,” due Nov. 16. All were originally released in 1964 as Beatlemania swept the United States.

“In the ’60s, American record labels often chose to reformat British records to suit the needs of the U.S. market,” says Capitol president Andy Slater. “In America, singles were generally included on current albums, where in the U.K. albums and singles were most often separate releases. Higher music publishing costs in the U.S. also made it impractical to include as many songs on American albums. In addition, in the case of the Beatles, some of the recordings on the American albums were given more echo than the British versions, to ‘Americanize’ their sound.”

The albums, which have been remastered from the original tapes, include stereo and mono versions of each song. Each album is housed in a miniature replica of its original album cover, while the box will feature a 48-page booklet chronicling the Beatles’ unprecedented 1964.

“Meet the Beatles” (originally issued Jan. 20, 1964, in the United States) begins with what was at the time the group’s latest single, “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” and its U.S. and U.K. B-sides, “I Saw Her Standing There” and “This Boy.” The bulk of the remaining tracks were taken from the U.K. version of the album “With the Beatles.”

“The Beatles Second Album” (April 10, 1964) is a grabbag of such tracks as the “She Loves You” single and its B-side “I’ll Get You,” additional songs from “With the Beatles,” cuts from the “Long Tall Sally” EP and a German version of “I Want To Hold Your Hand.”

“Something New” (July 20, 1964) includes eight songs from the soundtrack to the Beatles’ first film, “A Hard Day’s Night,” although not the title track or “Can’t Buy Me Love.” The album was denied the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top LPs chart by the movie’s proper soundtrack, issued by United Artists.

“Beatles ’65” (Dec. 15, 1964) boasts the “I Feel Fine”/”She’s a Woman” single, the “A Hard Day’s Night” leftover “(I’ll Be Back)” and eight songs from the U.K. album “Beatles for Sale,” including three particularly dark John Lennon tunes, “No Reply,” “I’m a Loser” and “Baby’s in Black.”

It is unknown if Capitol plans to re-release additional titles such as “Beatles VI” or “Yesterday … and Today.”
