New Girl Talk CD Out Now -- Name Your Price. Also, Another Rocker Tased



From Pitchfork, who alerted me that Girl Talk's new album is now available to download for free. I've already heard Twisted Sister, the Spencer Davis Group song "Gimme Some Lovin'," Temple of the Dog and other amazing bits. And I'm three minutes in. Go here to grab it.

Speaking of tasing, Chromewaves pointed out that ex-Velocity Girl drummer Jim Spellman was tased recently, as part of a CNN segment. Spellman now works for the cable station -- although his new band, Julie Ocean, is solid fuzz-pop. (Going to try to track down an MP3; sit tight.)

[Update: Thursday, 5:30 p.m. MP3! Whee!]

MP3: Julie Ocean, "#1 Song"
