MONDAY 11TH OCTOBER
FIVE DAY FORECAST
Morning, people. It's Monday again, which means I must be about to recount part of my weekend to you. Here goes: last night I rounded off quite a busy day by watching an in-store performance from Glasser at Rough Trade East. She's got a couple more UK gigs this week, in London tonight and In The City on Friday. If you can make it to either, I urge you to do so. Live, she recreates the songs from her album so beautifully, hiring musicians to play parts most would have put on a backing track, which adds a very different feel to the show. Speaking of In The City, that's up first in this week's Five Day Forecast.

 
01: In The City. This week sees In The City take over Manchester for three days of live music and industry seminars, from 13-15 Oct. Team CMU will be there to take part in two panel debates, Brand On The Wall on headline sponsorship on Wednesday and Analyze This on 'fanalytics' on Thursday, as well as running condensed versions of our acclaimed training seminars. Plus we'll be watching bands, lots and lots of bands. Stay tuned for Same Six Questions with some of those bands and coverage of the conference here in CMU Daily throughout the week. And to get you in the mood, do check out our In The City Spotify playlist put together by their live man Gavin Cooke.

02: Iceland Airwaves. Also showcasing bands aplenty this week is Iceland Airwaves - "a large party thrown in celebration of teenagers in bear costumes" according to the website - which takes place in Reykjavik from Wednesday to Sunday. Amongst those performing this year are CMU favourites such as Rolo Tomassi, FM Belfast, Mount Kimbie, Efterklang, Hurts, and Vuk. Don't just get on a plane and turn up though, it's all sold out for this year.

03: Music Video Awards. The Music Video Awards take place tomorrow night at the Odeon West End in London's Leicester Square. Leading the nominations is Plan B with nods in eleven categories for three videos from his 'The Defamation Of Strickland Banks' album, with 'Stay Too Long' and 'Prayin' receiving five nominations each. Now in its third year, the ceremony will recognise technical excellence and innovation in music videos from around the world.

04: New releases. So, last week two of the records I mentioned here in the top bit got pushed back a week. To all of you who rushed out to by the Magnetic Man and Ou Est Le Swimming Pool albums, I apologise. Still, you can pick them up when you head out to buy this little lot today: 'Lisbon by The Walkmen, 'Lucky Shiner' by Gold Panda, Wolf People's 'Steeple', Foxy Shazam's eponymous debut, 'Every Step's A Yes' by The Bees, 'As One' by Tony Lionni, 'The Heart Of The Nightlife' by Kisses, and 'Belle And Sebastian Write About Love' by, yep, Belle And Sebastian. There's also a Ting Tings single out today, but don't buy that, buy 'Craig Machinsky', the new single by Paris Suit Yourself, instead.

05: Gigs. Assuming you're not at In The City or Iceland Airwaves, there are still plenty of gigs to see this week. Tinie Tempah, Doom, Darwin Deez, Murcof, Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip, Steve Mason and the ever reliable Guns N Roses all begin UK tours this week. There's also the Lyrical Alliance collaboration between Talib Kweli and a group of Arabian hip hop artists at The Roundhouse in London on Saturday, I Like Trains at The Deep aquarium in Hull on Thursday, and the first of MJ Hibbett's 'One Pub World Tour' shows in London tonight.

Okay, that should be plenty for you to get on with. I'm going to go away and work frantically before I get my train up to Manchester. Maybe I'll see you there.

BRASSONAUT
Given their name, it would be fair to expect that Canadian sextet Brasstronaut might make bad ska punk, but I promise you they don't. The band was initially formed as a duo, with keyboard player Edo Van Breeman and trumpet player Bryan Davies making ambient instrumental electronica with jazz trumpet. That idea may have you wishing for the time when you thought they were a ska punk band, but these days they're making something far more palatable.

 
With Van Breeman adding some vocals and the band's line-up expanding, they developed a sound that continues to draw on the classical training of Davies and other band members, but throws it all into pop structures. The result is a sound that's smart and often complex but also completely accessible and very likeable. The band release their debut album, 'Mount Chimaera', on 8 Nov and are on tour in the UK now, including a show at The Underbelly in London tonight and at In The City on Wednesday.

EMINEM SQUABBLE WITH AFTERMATH AND APPLE GOES LEGAL AGAIN
So, last year Eminem's company Eight Mile Style sued the rapper's record label, Universal's Aftermath, and Apple Inc over the sale of Slim Shady's track on iTunes. Said tracks are sold on the Apple digital music store via their licence with Universal Music, but Eight Mile Style argued - for reasons that were never specifically explained - that Universal did not have the rights to licence Eminem's music for download. Based on that claim, Eight Mile Style said it was due millions in damages.

The specifics of Eight Mile Style's legal claim were never all that clear, and they were never presented in court because within a fortnight of Eight Mile launching its action an out of court settlement had been reached.

It's now thought that either Universal or Apple - it's not clear which - promised to pay damages of over $2 million as part of that deal. But, it would seem, Universal and/or Apple have not made good on that promise and, according to DetroitNews.com, Eight Mile Style has now filed a new lawsuit at the Detroit District court requesting a judge enforce the earlier settlement.

Should this get to court this time round, it's not clear if the case would centre on the contractual agreement made last October or on Eight Mile Style's original claim regarding the download rights in Eminem's music.

Neither Universal nor Apple have commented.

LENNON CELEBRATED
John Lennon's first wife Cynthia and the couple's son Julian unveiled a slightly crazy monument in Liverpool this weekend to commemorate what would have been the late Beatle's 70th birthday. It was one of several events around the world to celebrate Lennon's birthday.

Speaking at the unveiling, Cynthia, who was married to Lennon for much of the sixties, told reporters: "I think the mourning is over for John. I think it's time to celebrate, which is what we're doing".

Julian added: "I think most things have been said. We come here with our hearts to honour dad and to pray for peace and say thank you to each and everyone of you and everyone involved in the celebrations today".

Yoko Ono, meanwhile, was in Reykjavik, where she took part in a short ceremony at the Lennon-tributising Imagine Peace Tower, just outside the Icelandic capital, before attending the premiere screening of a new documentary about the creation and building of the 'tower' (it's actually a series of lights) itself. Lennon's widow then performed at a tribute concert where Ringo Starr joined her on stage to sing 'Give Peace A Chance'.

Ono commented: "John came from humble beginnings and did not enjoy a privileged early life, but he went on to change our world with songs and ideas. They resonate even more today than when he first gave them to us".

Meanwhile, on the crazy internet, Google paid tribute to Lennon via a collaboration with Ono and EMI (the latter keen to flog the late singer's re-mastered solo albums) with some special videos on YouTube and a special, moving, 'Imagine' soundtracked, Google doodle on the web firm's main search engine page.

TALKS CONTINUE, BUT TERRA FIRMA V CITIGROUP COURT BATTLE STILL LIKELY
According to the Mail, negotiations continue between EMI owners Terra Firma and US bank Citigroup ahead of their pending court battle, due to kick off in New York on 18 Oct.

As much previously reported, Terra Firma and its tax-avoiding boss man Gary 'The Guy' Hands claim the tedious bankers at Citigroup provided them with duff advice ahead of their 2007 acquisition of EMI, causing them to bid too high a price for the flagging music monolith. Gary says Citigroup, and his former best buddy there, David 'The Worm' Wormsley, advised him badly because the bank had a conflict of interest, them working for both Terra Firma and EMI at the time.

Terra Firma and Citigroup did remain on good terms for some time after Gary's EMI buy, but they fell out big time last year, seemingly when the bank refused to take a hit on its multi-billion dollar loan to EMI in order to help the equity group restructure the music firm's finances. The lawsuit followed and, despite Citigroup's efforts to have the whole thing quickly dismissed, a New York judge last month confirmed he'd hear the case from 18 Oct.

Gary and The Worm's lacklustre attempts to reach an out of court settlement officially finished early last month, though the Mail says "sporadic" talks between the two parties have continued, as recently as this weekend.

Partly because PR advisors for both sides reckon neither the equity men nor the bankers will come out particularly well from a high profile analysis of how business was done at the peak of the made-up-money boom of the last decade. For starters, you'll get idiot journalists referring to the two main protagonists as Gary and The Worm.

That said, while both Terra Firma and Citigroup recognise an out of court settlement would probably be sensible, neither side is sufficiently in love with 'the sensible option' to compromise, so a full court hearing is still looking likely. Which is good news for those of us sitting on the sidelines. I really must remember to buy that new 'hilarious litigation hat' later this week.

FORMER TAYLOR SWIFT MANAGER SUES
Taylor Swift's one-time manager, Dan Dymtrow, has filed a lawsuit following years of squabbling with the weirdly popular US singer's father-manager and her record label Big Machine.

Dymtrow worked with Swift way back in 2004 on her early recordings. He was fired by Swift Senior in July 2005 ahead of him signing his daughter to country indie Big Machine. The former manager reckons he was unfairly cut out of Swift's pop career, and is due a share of her subsequent mega-buck earnings.

Swift Senior has previously dismissed Dymtrow's claims he was integral in his daughter's rise to fame, and he and Big Machine previously defeated all but one of the former manager's legal claims. But Dymtrow seems to think he still has enough of a case to get millions in damages, hence the new lawsuit.

SUGABABE BANNED FROM DRIVING
Sugababe Amelle Berrabah was banned from driving for fourteen months last week following that recent drink driving charge. The ban was instigated despite the popstress's protestations that she was far too famous to use public transport.

In its coverage, the Daily Mail took much delight in photographing the zero people who had shown up to support the "too famous to use the bus" Babe outside Highbury Corner Magistrates Court last week, contrasting it with the thousands of fans who showed up when George Michael faced his DUI charges last month. It may come from the Mail, but it was still quite a funny observation.

Despite previously denying tabloid reports that she had got into her car drunk after a row with her boyfriend, in court it turned out Berrabah had, erm, got into her car drunk after a row with her boyfriend.

Police had already been called after neighbours heard the Babe and her other half having a rather noisy slanging match. But when they got there, Berrabah told officers the argument was over and that she'd called a cab and would soon be leaving. Said cab duly arrived, so police let the pop star be. But then, for some reason, she was seen an hour later by the same neighbours leaving the same building in her own car. They shopped her to the police who stopped the singer on Camden High Street and breathalysed her.

In court, Berrabah's lawyer said the singer was full of remorse for the drink driving. He told the judge: "She realises this is an exceptionally silly thing to have done. She is exceptionally sorry for her actions. She realises it was wrong, she realises she has let herself down, and her family".

Despite the remorse, and the dismissal of bus travel, the judge pressed ahead with the fourteen month driving ban, saying Amelle would have to use taxis if buses were really out of the question. He added that if she completed a drink driving rehab programme she could actually drive again as soon as next August.

SOLOMON BURKE DIES
American soul singer Solomon Burke died while at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport this weekend, having just flown into the city ahead of a scheduled gig this Tuesday. The cause of death is currently unknown. He was 70.

Born in Philadelphia, Burke's first dabblings with the music business were as a presenter of a gospel radio show, he being a preacher at the time. He came to prominence as a performer after signing to Atlantic Records in the 1960s, scoring hits with versions of 'Just Out Of Reach' and 'Cry To Me'.

In 1964 he wrote and recorded the song for which he will probably be best remembered, 'Everybody Needs Somebody To Love'. The song has been recorded by numerous other artists over the years, and found a whole new audience through its use in the 1980s movie 'The Blues Brothers'.

Burke continued to record and perform for much of his life, being inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame in 2001. The following year he scored a new success with a covers album called 'Don't Give Up On Me'. He continued to perform around the world, playing Glastonbury in 2008 and various UK concerts as recently as earlier this year, albeit performing more recent gigs sitting down.

PHENOMENAL HAND CLAP BAND TO RELEASE SOME REMIXES
Also doing the remix album thing on 1 Nov will be The Phenomenal Handclap Band.

Says the band's Daniel Collas: "Listening to these remixes, I'm struck with the feeling that many of our originals have been completely reincarnated in the most literal sense of the term. Whether as a heavy dancefloor burner (The Stallions' version of 'Tears'), a mind-bending krautrock workout (Fujiya & Miyagi's take on 'The Journey To Serra da Estrela'), or ether soaked electro-rock (Coco Electrik's 'Dim the Lights'), our wayward songs are finally getting to live the lives we couldn't provide for them".

These are the remixes that will appear on the new album:

Tears (Stallions Remix)
15 to 20 (80Kidz Remix)
Baby (Clock Opera Remix)
All Of The Above (TH White Remix)
You'll Disappear (Munk Remix)
Dim The Lights (Coco Electrik Remix)
Give It A Rest (Snack + C'mish Remix)
15 to 20 (Den Haan Remix)
Testimony (Cosmodelica Remix)
Baby (Virgil Howe Remix)
The Martyr (Live KEXP Session)
The Journey To Serra Da Estrella (Fujiya & Miyagi Remix)

HURTS TO PLAY LITTLE NOISE SESSIONS
Hurts were quite funny on 'T4' yesterday. "So do you watch 'Hollyoaks'?" Miquita asked, trying to segue from their interview into the soap. "I think I watch 'Hollyoaks' as often as I see a comet", replied Theo Hutchcraft. I like Hurts.

And you will be able to see them do one of their slightly weird but very well dressed live performances as part of the Mencap Little Noise Sessions programme this year. Also taking part in this rather lovely fund-raising musical initiative at Islington's Union Chapel this year are Tom Jones and Paolo Nutini.

WANT SOMETHING NORDIC? JA, OF COURSE YOU DO
If you didn't make it to last week's You Are In Control conference in Reykjavik, and won't make it Iceland-side for Airwaves this week either, well fear not London types, you can still have a bit of Nordic fun on 21 Oct in the slightly more convenient (if not quite as exciting) setting of The Lexington on Pentonville Road, courtesy of Ja Ja Ja, a regular London showcase featuring Nordic talent.

Each edition of Ja Ja Ja is hosted by a different UK media, and this month's sees Clash mag in control. On the bill will be Iceland's Rokkurro, Norway's The Low Frequency In Stereo and Sweden's The Deer Tracks. All three will be marvellous, I'm sure, though as devotees will already know, The Deer Tracks are now listed in the Oxford English Dictionary as the pure definition of a "CMU favourite". That is to say, we bloody love them.

Go to www.wegottickets.com/event/93976 for tickets, or hannahgould@hannahgould.co.uk for press info. Hurrah.

BIEBER TO LAUNCH NAIL POLISH
Justin Bieber is launching his own range of nail polish, which either means he's a closet emo type or he's willing to do whatever it takes to squeeze as much cash as is actually physically possible out of his delusional and mainly female teenage fan base.

According to fashion website styleite.com, the Bieber nail varnish will be on sale in US stores before Christmas, branded One Less Lonely Girl.

Perhaps someone could also sell Justin Bieber branded nail polish remover that comes with a bit of software that automatically wipes the squeaky haircut's music off your iPod, which can be sold to all his teen fans once they grow up.

ONE FRENCH ISP STANDS ITS GROUND AGAINST TROIS-STRIKES
Three-strikes is underway in France, but one French ISP is refusing to play ball. According to Torrentfreak, net firm Free has refused to send out warning letters on behalf of the government's anti-piracy Hadopi agency, because the vague wording of the laws that set up trios-strikes technically speaking don't obligate them to.

In reality, it seems unlikely Free will be able to resist sending out the three-strike letters forever, and their current policy is probably a delaying tactic. Other net firms are accusing Free of adopting the awkward stance to win competitive advantage, because file-sharers will drift towards them now that all other French ISPs are sending out warning letters.

The government has said it will issue a Free-targeted decree ordering all ISPs to participate in the letter sending, though Guillaume Champeau of French news outlet Numerama told TorrentFreak: "It is yet to be seen if [the government's decree] can be legally issued, since the law does not mandate any obligation for the ISPs to send the emails themselves".

APPLE ARE PLANNING SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE, AND THIS TIME FOR REAL (APPARENTLY)
We could have run an "Apple to launch subscription music service" rumour on pretty much any day since 2004, and on at least 37 occasions have done. And here we go again. The New York Post has reported that Apple is actively planning some sort of subscription-based music service, probably a streaming rather than download thing. According to the Post, gossipers reckon the new service will launch with a monthly subscription fee of $10-15.

Some gossipers are also saying that, while talking to the labels about their subscription service plans, Apple bosses have also been briefing against Spotify, urging label chiefs not to licence a free version of the popular European streaming service in the US. As much previously reported, American label chiefs are already nervous about green lighting the freemium Spotify service Stateside, fearing it will harm less-flexible and/or less-free streaming services already operational out there - Pandora and Rhapsody in particular, both of which are arguably moving towards self-sufficiency.

Sort of ironically, if Apple pressure does stop a free Spotify from launching in the US that will be good news for Rhapsody, though some reckon an Apple-run subscription-based streaming platform would knock the Real Network created service off kilter in itself. Apple has a much bigger user-base to up sell subscription services too, despite MTV's involvement in Rhapsody.

Despite all of these mumblings, some insiders still reckon some sort of Spotify service will launch in the US this side of Christmas, possibly though some sort of partnership with Microsoft and its new mobile operating system.

WE7 INCLUDES USER PLAYLISTS IN SEARCH
Spotify rivals We7 announced a new little add-on feature on Friday in which user-generated playlists will pop up when users do artist or song searches on the streaming music platform.

And if you don't believe me, well, firstly I am deeply offended and may have to go and have a little cry. But secondly, while I do that, here's We7 boss man Steve Purdham talking about the new service: "With over a million playlists this is an outstanding source of personal recommendation that we wanted to make available to the whole we7 community. We all know the power of personal recommendation and the new Playlist Search features ensures this knowledge is available to everyone".

PLEDGE AND SONICBIDS PARTNER
Fan funding website PledgeMusic has announced a partnership with Sonicbids, the online platform for bands looking for gig and festival opportunities. Pledge's fan funding facilities and their email-for-a-track tool will be added to the Sonicbids dashboard.

Pledge founder Benji Rogers told CMU: "We are really excited to partner with Sonicbids to be able to offer a full 360 degree solution for artists that doesn't involve any of their rights being given away. Sonicbids and PledgeMusic share a dedication to helping artists succeed and this partnership makes perfect sense for both companies. Together, we are able to provide a huge benefit to artists - whether they're working with one of us already or just signing up".

Sonicbids founder Panos Panay added: "The PledgeMusic widget will add even more value for our members by helping bands solidify their relationships with fans. Artists will now have the ability to raise funding for demos, singles, EPs, albums, tours, PR and marketing and much more within their Sonicbids account. It's important for us to partner with companies that are as passionate about empowering musicians to build sustainable music careers as we are and our partnership with PledgeMusic certainly symbolises that".

ROCK RADIO EXPANDS REGIONAL DAB OUTPUT AFTER SMOOTH GOES NATIONAL
Following the merger of all of Smooth Radio's regional FM services to basically create one national station for the whole of England, the Guardian-owned easy listening enterprise has moved its digital radio output from the regional digital networks to the nationwide Digital 1 DAB network.

That left some potential gaps on the local DAB multiplexes in Yorkshire and South Wales, where former local Smooth outposts had always broadcast digitally. Those were filled on Saturday morning by another GMG-Radio owned service, Rock Radio. So, that's lovely for all concerned.

REALITY SUCKS
So, drum n bass legend Goldie was the first celebrity to be voted off the BBC's 'Tedious Dancing Show' last night, despite him wearing a rather dapper hat. Both former footballer Peter Shilton and former-political-nightmare-turned-national-joke Anne Widdecombe managed to get more public votes to stay on the show. 1.00076 music stars now remain in the 2010 'Strictly' competition, one time Destiny's Child star Michelle Williams and one time pop chick Patsy Kensit (hey, I rather liked 'I'm Not Scared' thank you very much).

Meanwhile, on the other side, young people were watching nobodies sing. And those that managed to watch a whole 2.5 hours of 'X-Factor' without self-harming to such an extent that they no longer had use of their fingers got to send not one but two sets of wannabes home through the phone vote.

A dude called Nicolo Festo got axed on public vote alone, while the next two low-votes were, as custom dictates, put back before the show's panel of judges, who decided to keep singer Katie Waissel and send home aspiring boyband FYD. They reckoned their groovy dance moves might have distracted viewers from their singing, though given the current rise of The Wanted it seems that to be a successful boyband in 2010 you need to be shit at both dancing and singing.

Elsewhere in 'X-Factor' news, Simon Cowell has confirmed his lawyers are helping axed 'X-Factor' wannabe Gamu Nhengu in her legal fight to stay in the UK. The singer was controversially (I'm told) dropped from the talent competition by judge Cheryl Cole last week, before the live shows section of the latest series. It was then revealed the wannabe is facing deportation back to Zimbabwe after there were problems with her mother's visa application.

Despite achieving a feat much more impressive than getting through to the final stage of 'X-Factor' - having the British tabloids demand an asylum seeker be allowed to stay in the UK - the outcome of Nhengu's case still hangs in the balance. Cowell told that tabs late last week: "We are helping Gamu and her family as much as possible. We have lawyers working with her lawyers, not because we have to but because I really feel for their situation, and that's outside of the show".
