Lewis Is Found, Against Me! Plot New Live Album and Veld Music Fest Ends with Homicide Investigation in Our News Roundup
Published Aug 09, 2014Once again, we're back with our news roundup, where all our top stories are collected in one convenient post. So if you're feeling a bit out of the loop, come see what went down in the music world the last several days.
First off, a great Canadian music mystery has been solved, as the ever-elusiveLewis has been found. The Seattle label Light in the Attic, which reissued his stellar L'Amour LP and follow-up Romantic Times, found the man born Randall Wulff in an unnamed Canadian city. According to the label's account, "Randy had no idea about the recent interest in his old records and didn't seem to care in the slightest." And while it's great that the mystery has been solved, it seems LITA will not repress anymore copies of the Lewis albums, so if you want them, you might want to get on that.
