Holiday season is getting into gear once again. Will be interesting to see if the credit crunch will see little Tommy not get his flash red bike this Christmas.

Nevertheless, the music will still continue.

-Who here remembers Sum 41? I used to be all about The Hell Song and Better off Dead. They are releasing a Best of Album I can think of maybe 2, maximum 3, more Sum 41 songs I did like. Maybe its a best of EP :P. Can this also mean their career is on the out? and for the love of god is that dude still in cahoots with Avril Lavigne? Who do you think pays for dinner? Anyway, album has a US release date of : November 26th 2008. It's titled: 8 years of Blood, Sake and Tears

- I haven't picked up the latest Oasis album Dig Out Your Soul, but here is an interview with Noel Gallagher. No cheating now, which one is he?

-Anyone who knows me will vouch for how much I rate Jack White (The Racounters / The White Stripes), he has teamed up with Alicia Keys to create the theme for the latest Bond film : Quantum of Solace. The Track is titled Another Way to Die.

Now then, the tune itself hasn't quite hit the bells with me, but maybe its a grower. is where the video can be found.

-Underground 70 is coming up on the 7th November

-Major Props to HK band Killer Soap for battling it out with other great acts in the China finals for the Global Battle of the Bands competition. The lethal hygiene apparatus will fly out to London for the finals wearing China on their sleeves and HK in the hearts. Go The Soaps!

-Can someone please explain to me why small ass Singapore get the Rockstar Taste of Chaos Tour come to town, and us in "Asia's World City" don't? It's a little consolation that Atreyu and MUCC have pulled out of the Asian legs. Still, I would have thought there would be quite a few people in the 852 that would like to catch As I Lay Dying and Story of the Year in their own backyard. Also playing on the Singapore leg is local (SG not HK) act A Vacant Affair who's debut LP will be out at the end of the year.

I've seen A Vacant Affair a few times now on my trips to Singapore, and they are a very solid act, 852 promoters, get them across here!
