S Club 7

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Once they’ve got their ‘hits medley’ over with on tonight’s BBC Children In Need, the newly-reconciled S Club 7 will, following a weekend of rest and leisure time, get together at 10am at a secret site in London for a press conference. At which ‘a thing’ will be ‘revealed’. Popjustice has a re-print of the event’s RSVP-only flyer.

• Ty Segall is releasing an album. A live album. A live album recorded in San Francisco. A live album recorded in San Francisco that is the fifth instalment of Castle Face’s Live In San Francisco series. It’ll be out on 26 Jan. Here is ‘What’s Inside Your Heart’.

• Gang Of Four have only gone and teamed up with Alison Mosshart from The Kills. They recorded a song together called ‘Broken Talk’ and it’ll appear on the band’s new album. ‘The band’ being Gang Of Four. I would have said ‘the duo’ if it was going to be on The Kills’ album. I don’t think there even is a new Kills album. Anyway, here’s the song.

• Scandinavian dark-pop artist Karin Park has detailed the follow-on to her excellent 2012 LP ‘Highwire Poetry’. ‘Apocalypse Pop’, as the new set is titled, will be released on 2 Mar 2015. This is lead single ‘Look What You’ve Done’, which fits the whole ‘apocalypse pop’ thing like a glove.

• David Bowie has gone and released a video for ‘Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)’, one of a pair of new tracks on his forthcoming 50th anniversary hits compilation ‘Nothing Has Changed’. Do you hear that, Selena Gomez? Fifty. Years. Go see ‘Sue’ here, and listen to its B-side of sorts, ‘Tis A Pity She Was A Whore’, here.

• Matthew E White is going to play a show at the Barbican on 10 Mar. I know what you’re thinking, what does the E stand for? I don’t know, but if I’d have to guess I’d say it was Emmental. Why not buy a ticket and ask him if I’m right?

• Paris Hilton has literally been named the best new female DJ in the world at the (obviously public voted) NRJ DJ Awards in France. Which is pretty good going, because according to the NRJ website she wasn’t nominated for anything. And also, there was no Best Male Newcomer award, so making hers gendered is a bit weird. Anyway, she turned up to collect her award in person at a ceremony this week. Because when’s she going to get that opportunity again? Probably next year, I guess.
