Ian Curtis' kitchen table has sold for over 13,000 dollars on eBay.
Joy Division original members Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris would like to lend their voice of support to Deborah and Natalie Curtis, who have been caused great distress over media reporting of the sale of the table originally owned by the family, and currently being auctioned on eBay. Deborah and Natalie would like to point out that the sale of this table has nothing whatsoever to do with them. The table was sold along with the house in 1980 and Natalie has never signed any authentication document. Furthermore, they consider the sale of a personal family item, and the subsequent media reporting, to be distasteful...

Oldies.com has an absolutely massive vinyl sale going on - over 7,000 records, most of which are 50%+ off. Some great stuff there, like Head Automatica's Decadence, La Dispute's Wildlife, A Loss For Words' No Sanctuary. Moving Mountains' New Light, Mutemath's Armistice, Say Anything's self-titled record, Daytrader's Twelve Years and more - many of which are less than $10.

Update: It appears that many orders from Oldies.com's clearance sale are being cancelled, or partially delivered. Many users noted in the comments that they're receiving only a few records from their orders, if any at all. Refunds are apparently a mixed bag as well. Check the comments for the latest -JA

Here's something pretty cool: Sidestep, an app that lets you buy concert merch from your phone so it's ready for you at the door on your way out, or shipped directly to you. The beta will be available later this month, though will be used at select dates on the Fall Out Boy / Panic! At The Disco tour, for iOS and Android. Read a statement about the app in the replies. Is this something you'd use?

A new Kickstarter has launched aiming to get the works of Chopin out of copyright purgatory.
Here's how it works: If the project successfully meets its fundraising goal ($75,000 by Sunday, October 20), it will hire musicians (some of the best Chopin pianists in the world) to record and release to the public under a CC0 license the entirety of Chopin's life's work, some 245 pieces. Then, if you're making a movie (or writing a Wikipedia page, or a blog post, or whatever else you might be doing) and looking for that particular Nocturne, you'll have a place to turn to.

Brian Bonz (you may know him from Kevin Devine's Goddamn Band) has set up a Kickstarter for his new album.
Misophonia is a project born out of this phase of my life. I'd scored a documentary for PBS about artwork in New York City's subway stations, and much of that material formed the record's blueprint. I experimented with sampling music and found sound, using new programs and abandoning any prior strictures with approaching previous work. Chris Bracco, who produced From Sumi to Japan, returns to collaborate on Misophonia. The Major Crimes continue their trek forward on this one, as well, along with both old and new guest musicians.

Long time AP.net user, ghsNICK!, has launched a Kickstarter for a "minimalist wallet" -- we're big on community, so we felt like helping out and dropping a link to his page for him. Plus, he sent us one to check out, which I am pretty sure was just a bribe so I'd remove some old infraction points. Anyway, I spent the day playing with it and all in all I think it's a pretty interesting concept. I like the idea of a small and minimal wallet for the few things I do carry with me on a daily basis (can we move these all to my phone yet?). Given that I only really need my ID, a few credit cards, and maybe an insurance card ... it really does lighten the load of what I carry around in my...

Joey Cape is auctioning off a Scorpios record -- with all proceeds being donated to Tony Sly's family.
This is the last split I did with Tony Sly. Tony has 2 songs on this album. It was fun to make and I am proud I was able to share this experience with Tony. People are always asking me for this record but I can not sell this on my store site (joeycape.com). So I decided to sell a few I have on Ebay. In my mind this record needs to be available to Tony's fans. It will eventually. But for now... here ya go!

Tour drummer Miles McPherson (Paramore, Kelly Clarkson) was seriously injured in a golf cart accident and now can't drum because of the injuries to his hand and arm. Insurance covered most of the medical costs, but insurance doesn't cover his month to month pay to take care of his family. A family friend is helping raise money for him and his family with a Facebook donation page.

Ian MacKaye spoke with the Washington City Paper about the Minor Threat t-shirts in Urban Outfitters. I can't believe it's cool to wear Minor Threat t-shirts.
“Dischord doesn’t make T-shirts,” MacKaye clarifies in a phone call. But Minor Threat is another story. Because so many bootlegged Minor Threat shirts are constantly floating around the universe, MacKaye decided the band had to do something about it. The solution: Get another company to oversee their official shirts, and when a bootleg crops up, let them deal with it. “It’s fucking absurd the amount of bootlegs are out there,” MacKaye says, and “my time is better spent doing other things … It’s not a political thing for me. I just...
