Cellars by Starlight, the musical

still from "Late Risers Club" by Marissa Acosta

1. Sure, but did Bono ever write a song about Steve Morse? From the laptop of Kay Hanley:

I am very happy to announce that my annual winter pilgrimage back to the motherland will be commemorated by a split single 7" with the dashing lads of Scamper, with whom I will share a stage January 5th at TT's. My song is called "Cellars By Starlight" which was inspired by Brett Milano, my dear friend from the Boston Phoenix and a fixture on the music scene. Sure, it's could be perceived as pandering, but I adore him and he's a freak and he deserves to have a song written for him and anyone who knows him knows that. Other than that, I really am making a new record and I am aiming to have it completed in May or so.
2. Rudds fan Camille Paglia shouts out their cover of "Burning Up" in her Salon review of Madonna.

3. Vote on the Volcano Suns' reunion setlist at MySpace, and download some classic V-Suns material while you're there.

LISTEN: Volcano Suns, "Testify" (mp3, left-click via MySpace)

4. We can't believe they waited until after Steve Morse retired to release this as a single.

WATCH: Santana and Steven Tyler, "Just Feel Better" (Video, opens in Windows Media)

5. This girl made a demo with dudes from Tommy and the Terrors, the Tampoffs, and Dropkick Murphys backing her. Rock and roll songbird? Rock and roll jailbird is more like it: she looks like she dates only convicted felons. Or maybe rock and roll shitbird: she plays gritty street-punk recorded worse than a Teengenerate record. High-fives all around.

LISTEN: Jo Lyons and the Motherfuckers, "Frustration" (mp3)
