china is the gift of choice for a 20th anniversary. But considering
that Lollapalooza debuted in 1991 with a lineup that featured Jane's
Addiction, Nine Inch Nails, and Ice-T, the only thing Perry Farrell
& Co. should've been doing with china for the music fest's big 2-0
is breaking it over unsuspecting festivalgoers' heads.
Hat tip to the very underrated Jed Gottlieb of the Boston Herald, who reports this afternoon that the new record from THE CARS will be titled "Move Like This" and released on Tuesday, May 10. He also reports that the first single, "Sad Song," should hit radio sometime next month, so I'm already in the car on the way to Lynn to campout in the FNX studios and wait for it. The postman still delivers albums, right?
Forget words — these days, a photograph is worth a thousand reunion rumors.
So when Boston new wave legends the Cars quietly posted the above photo on Facebook two weeks ago, the Internet caught fire with speculation on their first possible show together in 23 years. The image, recently snapped in an unknown local studio, shows surviving members Ric Ocasek and Elliot Easton on guitars, David Robinson behind the drums and keyboardist Greg Hawkes playing bass.
