Amanda Palmer karaokes Aberdeen City's "God . . ."; Aberdeen's RedInk debut out next month

When Dresden Dolls aren't opening for Panic! at the Disco or staging their own "Celluloid Vaudville" one-nighters (a/k/a "Fuck the Back Row"), Amanda Palmer occasionally puts together what she calls "karaoke verite": basically, a dadist short film of her lip-synching to some hit of the moment. For the latest edition, she goes picking cactus leaves, skulking around european churches, and eventually ends up dead in the street . . . all for singing Aberdeen City's massive local hit "God Is Gonna Get Sick Of Me"! We didn't think of it until we saw the video, but this would really make the perfect cover for her -- she'd bring out the goth in it, and if you posted it to the Noise boarders, they'd retort with, "Hell, we've been sick of her since she won the Rumble!"

Meanwhile, Aberdeen announced that Red Ink (i.e. Columbia) will re-release The Freezing Atlantic on August 8 with new tracks recorded by legendary superproducer Steve Lillywhite; to support it, they'll spend most of the fall on the road with the Electric Six. Not to be outdone by a Dresden Doll, they've just lensed their own video "God Is Gonna Get Sick of Me," directed by Adam Neustadter from Wormeseye Films. See it here first:
