Liner Notes: When Dubious Collaborations Collide

Nov 21st, 2006 // 4 Comments

- Now that the Futureheads have been dropped from their label, they have a lot of time to play that “think of a really corny band name” game–at least, we hope that’s why their Christmas-themed supergroup is called The Joseph & Mary Chain. [NME]
- Natalie Merchant prepares to turn William Shakespeare’s 73rd sonnet into a mushy adult-contemporary ballad. [The Independent]
- Celebrate Kingdom Come‘s release date by trying to digest the news that Jay-Z is going to be on the forthcoming record by Fall Out Boy. [MTV]

    Kingdom Come?? What? Oh, that must be the name of Jay-Z’s new album or something? I totally thought you were talking about that 80′s metal band called Kingdom Come.

    Remember that time they had an album called “In Your Face?” As in “Kingdom Come In Your Face?” That was cool.

    So is this the beginning of Act IV in Jay’s Greek tragedy, the one where his hubris finally catches up with him? It’s like he’s trying to use Dale Earnhart, Fall Out & Chris Martin to reach a new audience, without realizing that HE ALREADY REACHED THEM YEARS AGO. If rednecks and emo-kids were ever going to convert, they would have bought The Blueprint.

    I appreciate the ambition, but Christ, have a little dignity.

  3. Champion: The Drinker

    To be fair, I could picture Pete Wentz rocking sandals with jeans.

    Ryan, it took me 16 years to get that joke!
