New band & Thursday music

Out of the ashes....
While they were around, we were fans of X-Teller; they wrote their own music and performed it with some style. Sadly as happens with many bands they imploded and split into two. One of those halves has teemed up with a vocalist and guitar player to form Wavestate.

The vocalist is Mel, who some will remember from Orchis; another local band that we rated highly.

So what do they sound like? Very good! You can listen for yourself by going to their page on myspace.

They have their first gigs booked at the Bournemouth Live event happening on 25th June and you can find out more about that by visiting

Leaking Chilli Peppers not happy
According to a report by Reuters; The Red Hot Chili Peppers have lashed out at a music pirate who leaked the funk-rock band's upcoming album onto the Internet, and urged fans not to download it illegally.

The band's spokeswoman said on Wednesday the offender was being tracked down. The group's highly anticipated first studio album in four years, "Stadium Arcadium," is still on track to go on sale on Tuesday via Warner Music Group Inc.s Warner Bros. Records, she said.

In a rambling open letter, the band's bass player, Michael "Flea" Balzary, said he and his colleagues would be heartbroken if fans downloaded the album beforehand. "For people to just steal a poor sound quality version of it for free because some a--hole stole it and put it on the internet is sad to me," he said.

Or just possibly the band are concerned that the downloads will hurt their sales. Ooh we are feeling cynical today!
