*The video game LEGO Rock Band is due out later this year. And two of the artists included in the game are Iggy Pop and David Bowie. Why yes, you can totally play "Let's Dance," as a plastic model of Bowie croons along. The game's attention to detail is incredible: Iggy's abs are killer, and the blockhead Bowie has two different-colored eyes. Awesome. Video trailer below; photo right here.

*New Order's Peter Hook fesses up that he faked the autograph of ex-Joy Division bandmate Ian Curtis. Including after Curtis died. (!) (via NME)

*And finally: The offpsring of Andy and Roger Taylor of Duran Duran have a band called Nitevisions. This blogpost has more information. Audio files are scarce, but I did find this super electropop clip. Anyone out there who has full songs or video links, EMAIL ME.
