Published Oct 09, 2010If you live north of the border, congrats: you just earned yourself a long Thanksgiving weekend. So while you embrace some holiday overindulgence, sit back, relax and dig into on our news roundup.
First up, it's really getting to be love 'em or hate 'em with Weezer, who this week were urged to break up via a $10 million fundraising campaign. Yeah, the effort kick-started by a Seattle man was obviously a joke, but that didn't stop some unbalanced Weezer fans from sending the poor dude death threats.
And like it or not, you just can't escape the Kanye West promo machine. This week, we got a release date for Ye's new LP, an album title and some fancy-pants art film. On top of all that, Jay-Z may be sharing Kanye's November 22 release date when Hova releases his long-delayed best-of set.
Then we had Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier telling Exclaim! that the band are far from over, Brasstronaut winning the ECHO Songwriting Prize and You Say Party giving us the details on their return to the studio.
And check out who will be playing Phil Spector in an upcoming biopic. Best or worst casting decision ever? You make the call.
