Pet Shop Boys at the Disco, plus Tower Download Service, Jumbo-Shrimp Moby vs. Factory Farming, Beck New and Old(elay), Highway Star

  • The Pet Shop Boys are into disco again. I never thought about this, but I guess these old techno guys are going to replace the rock dinosaurs as the elder statesmen of popular music. Maybe they'll even invent a new form of Advancement?
  • Tower has launched its own downloading service. Shawn Fanning must be rolling over in his grave.
  • Moby is doing what he can to prevent suffering on factory farms. He's right to do it, but I'm always pulling for the oxymoron.
  • MTV has all the news on Beck's upcoming record. And guess who's almost 10? Odelay! Get out your credit card.
  • Speaking of milestones, happy 50th anniversary, Interstate Highway System! Can't wait for the hi-def re-release to celebrate the occasion. Now more expensive!

I always thought that influential "indie" British musicians would become advanced not by making blues records, but by making true techno records.
