Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Fourteen historic(al) Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds LPs are going to be released on heavyweight vinyl for the first time; the first seven in the remainder of this year, and the next seven next year. Starting off the programme on 27 Oct are 1984’s ‘From Her To Eternity’, 1985’s ‘The Firstborn Is Dead’, and 1986’s ‘Your Funeral… My Trial’. Rich Nick Cave fans can place their orders in advance here.

• Highbrow pop bizarro Scott Walker is going to write the score for ‘The Childhood Leader’, a far-off film about “the rise of facism in the 20th Century” starring Robert Pattinson, Stacey Martin and Tim Roth. Watch this intriguing space.

• Bonobo has an EP on the way (on 1 Dec) featuring three all-new tracks, ie not ones off his last LP ‘The North Borders’. Hear the leading one, ‘Flashlight’, via this link.

• American band Viet Cong, an offshoot of very good American band Women, are all set to release their self-titled first LP (via a new deal with Jagjaguar) on 19 Jan 2015. Hear one of its tracks, ‘Continental Shelf’, here, and check the listings for VC’s 2015 UK tour here.

• Virgin-signed-band-on-the-rise Vaults are playing some shows next month (between 20-28 Nov here in Britain) behind their new EP ‘Vultures’. Tickets via

• Normal-sized popstar Meghan Trainor has given MTV a stream of her new single ‘Lips Are Movin’. And another thing. Justin Bieber has ‘climbed on’ a new Maejor remix of Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’, because Justin is also all about that bass. Sometimes I hate this world.
