Jack's Mannequin's Everything in Transit turned nine yesterday.

Update: Just kidding, I mean in August it will be nine. When I first googled the date to double-check it was wrong. Still a great fucking record so I'll leave this thread open to discuss the greatness that is this album. Appreciation thread commence.

We had a minor error on our news submission page that was making it look like you had to log-in to submit news -- sorry about that -- all fixed now. So, feel free to send in your news tips (anonymously or not). I know there are still a few things not quite working on the website (and the slowness on posting and editing still seems to creep up every now and again), but we're getting closer.

The Liverspots took some time to answer our random interview, which can be found here.
I had been in a lot of bands before and had always been determined not to have a band name with the word, "THE," in it. For some reason, I now realized that I actually wanted to be a part of that tradition. I guess I figured that it was good enough for the Crickets, the Beach Boys, the Clash, and the Ramones...so it was good enough for us too. I wrote out a list of names that combined these ideas...the Dentures, the Catheters, etc. Most of these names were taken...so I went with the Liverspots. The rest of the dudes joined months later and never got a vote.

I was planning to write something about this entire "who was talking about emo/pop-punk/whatever" debate that sprung up online yesterday (and touched on it via Twitter this morning), but Ben Cosman at The Wire nails the entire point I wanted to make in one paragraph:
A pissing-contest over who's liked emo longer isn't going to do the genre any favors in popularity. But of course an argument about emo descends into "I was talking about this band way before you were". As Cohen and Hyden (and a slew of others on Twitter) pointed out to Heisel, those who've hung around with the genre should be pleased with the progress it has made recently, both in terms of credibility and quality, instead...

Just expect to be kicked in the fucking balls," said Isaac Haile, guitarist for Knocked Loose. Vocalist Bryan Garris adds "It's been a long time coming and I'm extremely excited to show people what we've been working on. I'm very proud of this record and I hope it's the meanest thing in Louisville.”

Things are not looking good on the net neutrality front. According to several sources the FCC is set to propose new net neutrality rules "that would allow broadband providers to charge companies a premium for access to their fastest lanes." Or, as Tim Wu in The New Yorker so eloquently put it: "It threatens to make the Internet just like everything else in American society: unequal in a way that deeply threatens our long-term prosperity."

I saw Bad Suns play their first show in Portland last night and came away extremely impressed (the lead singer hitting the high notes in "Salt" was great). They have an EP out right now and mentioned they just finished recording their full-length for release later this year. Definitely a band to keep an eye on if you, like me, are into bands like The 1975, Walk the Moon, and are trying to wash the latest Neon Trees album out of your mouth.

Knew it was coming ... Morrissey has responded to the statement yesterday from Gail Shea.
There was something more than slightly desperate in Gail Shea referring to my recent comments on the annual Canadian seal slaughter as "ignorant", as reported in Canada's National Post. Speaking on behalf of Gail Shea, Sophie Doucet - showing symptoms of the same Shea disorder - stated: "I would urge Mr. Morrissey to consider the impact that his ignorant and inflammatory statements have on the livelihoods of thousands of hard-working men and women in rural communities". I should remind Sophie Doucet that building and maintaining the Concentration Camps of Auschwitz also provided livelihoods, but...

Billboard's profile of Dana Giacchetto reveals that Microsoft once made a (very low) bid for Sub-Pop Records.
Giacchetto says his greatest deal was the 1994 Sub Pop sale to Warner. "I can now reveal that Universal was the top bidder, $25 million," says Giacchetto, "but it wasn't the right creative fit. Sony Music bid $5 million. David Geffen bid $8 million -- I told him his bid was way too f-ing low - and Microsoft bid a paltry $4 million, frankly insulting. Bill Gates, who at the time considered himself to be 'the future of entertainment,' couldn't have been a more dull character. It definitely would have made Microsoft a bit more hip, which in hindsight might have actually made...

"This has easily been the most gratifying and fun making a record has ever been," Bemis tells Billboard. "The sort of theatrical bent of the music is something that's always been a part of Say...
