Brian Eno is reissuing his diary and essay collection, ‘A Year With Swollen Appendices’

Brian Eno is reissuing his diary and essay collection, A Year With Swollen Appendices.

First published in 1996, Eno first began writing the essays for the collection in 1994. Now, for the 25th anniversary of the project, the collection is getting a hardcover and e-book re-issue via Faber and Faber.

The re-issue, which will be available in the UK on November 19, will contain a new introduction by Eno alongside essays he penned on working with David Bowie, U2 and more. The new design of the book pays homage to his original diary and the first published edition of the collection.

Faber and Faber’s Editorial Director Alexa von Hirschberg said: “We are thrilled to be bringing Brian Eno’s 1995 diary and ‘appendices’ back into print.

“A Year with Swollen Appendices is an intimate time capsule of the mind and working practices of a formidable thinker and creator at a pivotal point in history. It is an indispensable read.”

Last month (July 1), Eno and his younger brother Roger announced an extended version of their collaborative album ‘Mixing Colours’.

The original edition of the record arrived back in March, serving as Brian Eno’s first record since 2017’s ‘Reflection’.

Released on July 17, the Eno brothers released ‘Mixing Colours Expanded’, which contained seven new tracks including ‘Moss’, ‘Violet’, ‘Vermilion’, ‘Marble’ and ‘Malachite’. A cut titled ‘Pewter’ also appeared, having previously only been available as a bonus track in Japan.

Back in May, it was suggested that Brian Eno was “keen to exchange ideas” with The 1975 by the band’s manager Jamie Oborne. He explained that Eno has been “a massive influence” on Matty Healy and co.

Eno had previously taken part in Healy’s In Conversation podcast series, where the former discussed a negative review of his ‘Ambient 1: Music for Airports’ album received back in 1978.

Turns out James Gandolfini was a huge fan of Green Day’s ‘Dookie’

It has been revealed that The Sopranos actor James Gandolfini was a huge fan of Green Day‘s third studio album, ‘Dookie’.

The late actor, who passed away in 2013 while on vacation in Rome, was a big fan of the pop-punk trio, according to former co-star Michael Imperioli.

Yesterday (August 6), Imperioli, who played Christopher Moltisanti in The Sopranos, posted a photograph of himself holding a guitar that Gandolfini is signing.

In the comments, Imperioli was asked about the kind of music Gandolfini liked. “Green Day,” he replied. “He would play the vinyl of dookie in his trailer at work. Totally serious,” he followed up, before adding: “No joke. He loved Green Day.”

Last week it was announced that the writers behind The Sopranos and Goodfellas are coming together to create a new mafia drama series.

The show, which will be produced by Showtime and Imagine Television Studios, will be created by The Sopranos producer Terence Winter, Goodfellas screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi and Empire‘s Brian Grazer, according to Deadline.

Meanwhile, David Chase, creator of The Sopranos, has seemingly accidentally revealed the fate of Tony Soprano in the show’s finale.

The end of the hit show, which was broadcast in 2007, left Tony with an ambiguous fate, with him sitting in a diner as a rival hitman approached.

The screen faded to black before Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin” played, leaving fans unsure as to whether Tony was killed or not.

Twin brothers listening to Phil Collins for the first time go viral after capturing brilliant reaction

Phil Collins

A pair of twin brothers have gone viral after capturing their brilliant reaction to the moment they listened to Phil Collins for the first time.

The latest video in the ‘First Time Hearing’ series from 21-year-old YouTube stars Tim and Fred Williams – known as “TwinsthenewTrend” – sees the pair listening to ‘In the Air Tonight’.

While the brothers have previously captured their reactions to tracks, including Dolly Parton‘s ‘Jolene’ and Bruce Springsteen‘s ‘Dancing in the Dark’, their reaction to Collins’ track has garnered their biggest audience to date.

The pair become increasingly animated in the video, but their greatest reaction comes when the famous drum solo arrives almost five minutes into the clip.

“That was cool how he did that,” Fred excitedly comments.

“I ain’t never seen somebody drum a beat three minutes [into] a song.”

Tim goes on to hail the song as “unique” and “a straight banger.”

One Twitter user responded: “Yooooo y’all been sleeping on Phil Collins while I’ve been a stan since I could stand! Watch these teens hear the power of the Phil fill for the first time.”

You can follow the pair, as TwinsthenewTrend, here.

It was confirmed earlier this year that Collins will reunite with his Genesis bandmates for a massive arena tour. The shows were set to place this year, but have been pushed back to 2021 due to the coronavirus.

“I think it’s a natural moment,” said Mike Rutherford of the band’s reunion. “Phil’s been out on tour for the last two-and-a-half years and his son Nick has been drumming, so it seemed like the natural moment to have a conversation about it. We’re all still good friends, we’re all above grass and here we are!”

Phil Collins, who is unable to play drums anymore, explained: “For me, it was something that was working and it was a problem we had to overcome, although I’ll be doing my best to play some bits on the tour. I’ve been working out what songs to play, but Tony and Mike came to the shows at the Albert Hall and both were taken with the way he understood what was needed.”

Listen to Anderson .Paak’s ‘Lockdown’ remix with J.I.D, Noname and Jay Rock

Anderson .Paak

Anderson .Paak has shared a thought-provoking remix of his recent track ‘Lockdown’, featuring J.I.D, Noname and Jay Rock – listen to it below.

The song’s original version, which reflects on the global protests against police brutality sparked by the death of George Floyd, arrived on June 19, the unofficial US holiday known as Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of slavery in the US.

Now, the Aftermath signee has dropped a a star-studded remix which keeps with the original version’s same themes, with J.I.D. rapping, “Have you had your coffee this evening, Karen?/ ‘Cause you seem a little off/ All the black girls missin’ and endin’ up inside the coffins/ But you mad when they “#BlackLivesMatter” on front your sidewalks.

Aside from also featuring Noname, the remix also includes TDE rapper Jay Rock’s verse that appeared in the song’s video but not on the studio version of ‘Lockdown’.

Listen to Anderson .Paak’s ‘Lockdown’ remix below:

The video for ‘Lockdown’ was directed by Dave Meyers. In the clip, .Paak, Jay Rock, Syd of The Internet, SiR, Dominic Fike and Dumbfoundead go to a diner after a protest. .Paak ends the video at home, crafting ‘Lockdown’ at his piano, which wakes his son up. The video concludes with them both on the couch, .Paak in tears.

It ends with the Black Lives Matter logo of a fist, created from the names of those who have lost their lives to police brutality, and a collection of signatures from various musicians and celebrities sending “love.”

Meanwhile, after some doubt that the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards (VMA’s) would be happening at all, the event is going full-steam ahead and have unleashed its list of nominees, which includes Anderson .Paak.

While the video to beat is for Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande‘s mega-collab ‘Rain On Me’ – which is up for seven awards – .Paak has been nominated in the Video For Good category for ‘Lockdown’.
