I think I have just found what I want for Christmas this year!
Check this out!
MÖTLEY CRÜE will re-release a limited quantity of its catalog in the U.K. via Eleven Seven Music, having regained the rights to all its songs after a long absence in the marketplace.

The following albums will be re-released on November 14 as vinyl-replica CDs with a 16-page booklet, a CD with a five-page booklet and on 180-gram vinyl in a four-color gatefold sleeve:

* Too Fast For Love
* Shout At The Devil
* Theatre of Pain
* Girls Girls Girls
* Dr. Feelgood

Also on that date, the rest of their catalogue — “Mötley Crüe”, “Generation Swine”, “New Tattoo” and “Live: Entertainment Or Death” — will be re-released in standard CD format only. This will be followed by “Mötley Crüe’s Greatest Hits” in CD, deluxe CD, 180-gram vinyl and DVD formats on December 5.

That was a hell of a show!
Sidewise, Hatebreed, Anthrax, and FFDP!
They all killed it!
But for me I have to say Anthrax was the hi light of the night.

Something about that band turns a good time in to a hell of a party!

I may be a bit biased from growing up with them but it sure was fun to get to see them live again!
Thanks to all of you who came out for the party!
See ya at the next one!

I’m really not sure if anyone will buy this…at least on purpose…But here is a little FYI.

I think I will wait for a week later and pick it up at the used CD store… Who ‘am I kidding.

This will never make my collection.

Sorry Metallica but I’m out on this one.

The musical collaboration between Lou Reed and METALLICA, “Lulu”, will be released on November 1 in North America via Warner Bros. Records and one day earlier (October 31) in the rest of the world through Universal Music. The CD was co-produced by Reed, METALLICA, Hal Willner — who has produced albums for Reed, Marianne Faithfull, and Laurie Anderson, among others — and Greg Fidelman. Fidelman also mixed the record.

A variety of physical “Lulu” releases are available for pre-order at LouReedMetallica.com:

** 2CD Package – $19.99

Contents: Double CD with 24-page booklet including all lyrics.

** Deluxe 2CD Poster Set – $119.99

Contents: Limited-run tube including a poster of the “Lulu” mannequin and song lyrics, three high-quality prints of Anton Corbijn photos of Lou Reed and METALLICA, and the double CD of “Lulu” in a unique folding slipcase. Each tube is numbered. Dimensions of the tube are approximately 5.5 inches in diameter by 49 inches long.

** Deluxe Book 2CD – $109.99

Contents: Limited-run two-book set, each book 12″ x 12″ square bound with a hard cover. The Anton Corbijn book is 20 pages of photos taken of Lou Reed and METALLICA in Gothenburg, Sweden in the summer of 2011. The lyric book is 28 pages with lyrics from each song along with imagery from the objects collection of WerkbundarchiV Museum Der Dinge, Berlin, Germany. The two “Lulu” CDs are also included in the lyric book. All housed in a clear plastic slipcase.

** Vinyl 2LP Set

“Lulu” final track listing:

01. Brandenburg Gate (4:19)
02. The View (5:17)
03. Pumping Blood (7:24)
04. Mistress Dread (6:52)
05. Iced Honey (4:36)
06. Cheat On Me (11:26)
07. Frustration (8:33)
08. Little Dog (8:01)
09. Dragon (11:08)
10. Junior Dad (19:28)

The idea for these two giants of modern music to work together was born after the 25th anniversary Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame concerts in New York City in October 2009. METALLICA — singer/guitarist James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich, guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo — played with Reed on VELVET UNDERGROUND classics “Sweet Jane” and “White Light/White Heat”. “We knew from then that we were made for each other,” Reed says.

After that triumphant performance, Reed suggested they all make a record together. At first they planned to record an album of Reedfraven’s older material, what Ulrich describes as “some of Lou’s lost jewels — songs that he felt he’d like to give a second spin, and we could do whatever it is we do to some of those songs.” That idea “hung in the air for a couple of months.” Then, a week or two before that session was to begin, “Lou called up and said, ‘Listen, I have this other idea.’”

That idea was to record a series of songs Reed had written for American avant-garde theater director Robert Wilson and German theater group the Berliner Ensemble’s production of the “Lulu Plays”, which premiered in April at the Theatre am Schiffbauerdamm in Berlin, founded by Bertolt Brecht. The songs are inspired by German expressionist Frank Wedekind’s early 20th century plays “Earth Spirit” and “Pandora’s Box”, and were a rewrite of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven”, which emerged as a graphic novel on Fantagraphics Press.

“We were very interested in working with Lou,” says Hetfield. “I had these giant question marks: What’s it going to be like? What’s going to happen? So it was great when he sent us the lyrics for the ‘Lulu’ body of work. It was something we could sink our teeth into. I could take off my singer and lyricist hat and concentrate on the music part. These were very potent lyrics, with a soundscape behind them for atmosphere. Lars and I sat there with an acoustic and let this blank canvas take us where it needed to go. It was a great gift, to be asked to stamp ‘TALLICA on it. And that’s what we did.”

“We had to bring ‘Lulu’ to life in a sophisticated way, using rock,” Reed says. “And the hardest power rock you could come up with would have to be METALLICA. They live on that planet. We played together, and I knew it: dream come true. This is the best thing I ever did. And I did it with the best group I could possibly find. By definition, everybody involved was honest. This has come into the world pure. We pushed as far as we possibly could within the realms of reality.”

“It’s definitely not a METALLICA album, or a Lou Reed album,” adds Hammett. “It’s something else. It’s a new animal, a hybrid.”

New Metallica song came out yesterday.

I hang my head in shame and wish for the days of St. Anger.

Not even going to post a link to it.

I head about thirty seconds of it and can honestly say that I probably lost a hour of my life because of it.

Now if you are a huge fan of this new song feel free to explain it to me.

I DONT GET IT!
Guys…Get pissed off and start drinking again!

Kicking off this week’s WRWU Blog is a little something for you A-Hole Bob!

* Iconic rock band RUSH will be dropping a two-disc live album “Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland” as well as “Moving Pictures: Live 2011″ on November 7th. As Peter Griffin said, “Canada sucks!”… just kidding… sorta….

* Drummer Matt Sorum of THE CULT, GNR, & VELVET REVOLVER is selling his bass drums from THE CULT’S “Beyond Good and Evil” tour.

* Kirk Hammett of METALLICA has custom hand-made guitar straps made from high-end Italian leather for sale. You can purchase those from www.kirk-hammett.com

* Speaking of METLLICA, their album poster with LOU REED has been banned from London’s Underground for resembling graffiti too closely.

* I wonder if London’s Underground will ban STEEL PANTHER’S new album cover?

* PEARL JAM, hot on the heels of their new documentary, announced they are halfway done with a new album!

* Looks like NEIL YOUNG’S following in the foot steps of KEITH RICHARDS and SAMMY HAGAR by putting out his own autobiography in the fall of 2012.

* DISTURBED to put out a B-Sides compiolation “The Lost Children” before the year’s up.

* Oh and if anyone care’s, cause everybody huts… sometimes… R.E.M. called it quits this week.
