Quantcast

As previously covered here on The Rock Father, THE BREEDERS will release a special 20th Anniversary Edition of their landmark album, LAST SPLASH. LSXX will hit stores on April 23 as a limited-edition, seven-disc vinyl box set, and a three-CD deluxe set. Artwork for this package was crafted by British artist Vaughan Oliver, who described it as "an irreverent conceptual and visual re-imagining" of his original LAST SPLASH design. So what's in the box?

As someone that has worked in the music business off-and-on for over two decades, please listen to me: NEVER TRUST A BAND. They flip-flop (I'm looking at Rob Zombie on this one). They offer vague responses (I'm looking at my favorite band of all-time, FAITH NO MORE on this one). And in some cases, they flat-out lie. Example? Local boys to these parts (that's near Rock Father HQ here in Illinois), FALL OUT BOY are back. Yes, it's 100% official... just 48 hours after bassist Pete Wentz told the Chicago Tribune "don't hold your breath that it's happening."

These milestones and anniversaries just keep hitting, and with each one, I still can't believe that the early 90s were 20 years ago and that I'm a "grownup" with kids now. The latest reminder of days gone by is that THE BREEDERS are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their LAST SPLASH album with that lineup reunited, and a reissue of the record. I still have my original CD that I purchased two decades ago (pictured below). The band embark on the LSXX Tour, with the first date going on-sale this morning. Details below...

This was certainly unexpected and seemingly "From out of Nowhere": An email showed up here at Rock Father HQ this morning with a full Q&A between former FAITH NO MORE guitarist JIM MARTIN, and longtime fans of FNM. The piece originally ran on UK-based Faith No More Blog after Martin agreed to a Q&A session based on 15 questions selected from over 500.  The entire session can be read below, along with an introductory statement by Martin himself. Some trivia for ya? I interviewed Jim Martin 20 years ago (pictured above!) along with the rest of FAITH NO MORE. I was only 15 at the time, and they were the first band to ever grant me an interview. Now, on with the Q&A...

Sometimes I get some surprising news landing here at Rock Father HQ, and with my normal daily "Daddy" duties and prepping family-friendly content for the main site, I often miss some interesting things to post here in the "For Grownups" section. That said, an email from Friday revealed that UK New Wave duo WANG CHUNG (Nick Feldman and Jack Hues) are back with a new album on December 11, when TAZER UP! hits the streets.
