Other notable announcements and developments today…

• NASA has a SoundCloud now, space cadets, via which it’ll upload audio clips from various historic flights and current missions, such as a shuttle launching. Nothing from actual space, because in space no one can hear… um, anything. Boldly go and browse the clips now.

• Big CMU favourite Frankie Rose has made a GiveForward page to raise money for her family, who have been rendered “suddenly destitute and homeless” following a “random act of violence”. Have a look, and maybe give a little if you can, via this link.

• Having ‘hit if off’ on an eppy of ITV’s ‘Celebrity Juice’, Tinchy Stryder and The Chuckle Brothers have released a single together, and made a video for SBTV to go with it. I can’t even. ‘To Me, To You (Bruv)’ is on iTunes right now, and profits from all sales will go to the charity ACLT, which raises awareness of leukemia, blood cancers and organ transplants.

• Ambient man Brian Eno, is to re-release four of his LPs, from 1992’s ‘Nerve Net’ to 1997’s ‘The Drop’, via All Saints Records this December. Each will have a bolt-on disc of rarities, unreleased tracks, and other complicated goodies. Extensive info on the All Saints site.

• NYC rap mutts Ratking have let go the new video for ‘Cocoa 88’, the hidden closing track to their first and only LP ‘So It Goes’. Watch the trio and co-star DJ Dog Dick in it now.

• Scott Walker and Sunn o))) have unveiled the Gisèle Vienne-directed video for ‘Brando’, the doomy, halting first track on their fifty-minute-long collaborative LP ‘Soused’. Dance gaily (not) to it via this link.
