Cocteau Twins reunion rumors denied
Posted by: Stéphane @ 20:50 CET

Cocteau Twins STILL Broken Up
In case anyone doesn't know yet—as widespread as this information is—Cocteau Twins broke up several years ago while recording the follow-up LP to the 1996 album Milk & Kisses. They no longer live near one another, and do not make music together as a band anymore. They are each pursuing separate careers at this point. As of this writing, there are no plans for a reunion, nor are there any plans for the unfinished album to ever be released.

To keep track of what the individual former band members are doing, bookmark this page and/or visit www.cocteautwinsforums.com.

MOSTLY AUTUMN Part Ways With Drummer, Announce Replacement
Posted by: Matze @ 21:57 CET

"British Celtic-influenced progressive rock band MOSTLY AUTUMN have parted ways with drummer Jonathan Blackmore.

"There is a great deal to do if the band is to achieve all we hope to do over the coming years and Jonathan felt unable to make the extra commitment which we need in terms of time and effort," the band write on their web site.

"We fully understand and respect this decision and wish Jonathan every success in his musical career outside of MOSTLY AUTUMN. We would also like to thank Jonathan for all of his hard work to date.

"Andrew Jennings will be taking over from Jonathan with immediate effect

"Andrew is the brother of keyboard player Iain and as a fully trained classical percussionist brings an impeccable musical pedigree to the band. The first performance by MOSTLY AUTUMN with Andrew Jennings on drums [took place] at the Y Theatre Leicester on April 3rd."

MOSTLY AUTUMN's fourth full-length album, "Passengers", was released last May though the Classic Rock Legends label."

Posted by: Matze @ 23:27 CET

"Bassist Solem has left Norwegian "black psychotic power metal" act RAM-ZET due to "private" reasons. "This is a great loss and the band wishes him all the best in the future," the group write on their web site. "He will be replaced by Jon 'Daniel', a local talent who blew all sceptics aside in Hønefoss last month..."

As previously reported, RAM-ZET have made available four MP3 clips from their recently completed demo at their official web site.

The tracks available for download are as follows (all clips approximately one minute each in length):

01. …And Innocence (mp3)
02. Asylum (mp3)
03. Damnation Dance (mp3)
04. Unresistable (mp3)

In addition, you can check out a video for the track "Queen" at this location. "Queen" comes off RAM-ZAT's sophomore album, "Escape", which was released in 2002 through Century Media Records.

Upcoming RAM-ZET shows:

Apr. 16 – Gjøvik, NOR @ Ampfield
May 08 – Hamar, NOR @ Espern"
