The hottest rumor I've heard in awhile is that Pinhead Gunpowder is doing a mini-tour of California next month. I can't get a confirmation anywhere but I'm hearing Berkeley, L.A., Orange County and maybe San Diego. They play so infrequently that when they do play, people fly in from all over the world. We first covered them here at the LNMC in May of 2006 and again last July-- a cover of Joni Mitchell's classic "Big Yellow Taxi." What a version!!
They have a hot new song, "Life During Wartime," their own composition, not the Talking Heads one. The acoustic version kicks ass but here's the rocked out one that sounds a lot like... you know who. You do, right?
