Today In Music News: Thu Sept 2

Much like The Beastie Boys did with Awesome: I Fuckin’ Shot That, Radiohead recently gave their fans at Prauge’s Výstaviště Holešovice Exhibition Hall over 50 flip video recorders to shoot the entire set, and the band then edited that footage into a complete concert film. The film is available here.

Twitter spoke the truth: Paste Magazine is ceasing publication of its print edition; they’ll continue their digital edition for now but the mag’s future looks uncertain. That’s a shame, because they’re one of the good ones.

Bruce Springsteen’s Darkness On The Edge Of Town box set will be released November 16, and the documentary on the making of the album airs on HBO on October 7.

Ex-Digable Planets rapper Palaceer Lazaro (aka Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler) has been releasing material under the moniker Shabazz Palaces lately — and in some really awesome news — he just got signed to Sub Pop Records. His two EPs were amazing, so every rap fan should be grabbing them in preparation for the inevitable full-length (most likely coming next year).

Sex Pistols and perfume are an obvious marketing tie-in, yeah?

Gang of Four are running a remix contest for their new song “I Party All The Time” — each artist is allowed to submit two remixes of the track, and the band will select the winners and runner-ups. The winning remix will be commercially released.

Horse Feathers are releasing a new seven-inch cover of Nirvana’s “Drain You” before hitting the road for November and the first part of December.

Snoop D-O-Double-G dropped some hints in a recent YouTube video with producer Swizz Beats about an upcoming sequel to Doggystyle titled Doggystyle II: The Doggumentary. In the video he says:

“The album is Doggystyle 2: The Doggumentary … [Swizz] just laced my boots up for my new record. Motherfucker gave me some gangsta shit, some Crips shit, some R&B shit, some hip-hop shit, some hard shit, mean shit.”
