Quick Pats of Butter: Concrete Wall of Sound Edition

May 25, 2010

Futurama is back!

Convicted murderer and Wall of Sound originator Phil Spector isn’t letting his 20-to-life prison sentence interfere with his musical legacy. Spector – who was convicted of killing actress Lana Clarkson in 2009 – has produced Rachelle Spector, his current wife’s debut project Out of My Chelle, a ten track CD that sounds more Stock, Aitken and Waterman than Wall of Sound.

    The album for Rachelle Spector features upbeat, mainstream adult pop with a multilayered feel but which is a “distinct departure” from the “Wall of Sound”.

Fans of Futurama, get ready for all new episodes starting June 24th – according to show creator David X. Cohen. So what can fans expect from the show, which has relocated to Comedy Central, besides the channel finally having some truth in advertising:

    We’re definitely not going way outside of the lines of what we’ve done before. My main priority is to make it feel like this is the same Futurama, and if you’re a Futurama fan you’re going to like these episodes. That said, I think there are a couple of episodes where we do push that edge a little bit, thanks to our being on Comedy Central — nothing that couldn’t have run the first time, but perhaps the quantity of borderline material is a little higher.

Brace yourselves, 80s music fans. Rick Astley is gearing up for a monster comeback, or perhaps the ultimate Rick Roll. You be the judge:

    “I’m not expecting great things this time round,” he told The Sun, saying he’s simply “having a giggle” with the June 7 release of ‘Lights Out,’ his first single since retiring in 1993.

After hearing snippets of the new single, I’m not expecting great things either. Probably should throw his hat into the running for Simon’s replacement on American Idol though.

    I’m surprised it’s taken Rick Astley this long to figure out that he can cash in on his unexpected internet notoriety. In a way that’s a little more respectable than playing private parties (not a RickRoll).

    That new Rick Astley song should have been the UK’s Eurovision entry. It’s much more what the other countries’ Eurovision voters tend to go for than the bizarre Stock Aitken Waterman written Kim Wilde ripoff that we’ve ended up with.

    Oh, Rick Astley. That new song….I may have to give it up, because it’s letting me down.
