    Five years after reuniting to play live, The Dream Syndicate plans to release its first new album in 29 years, a collection that bandleader Steve Wynn has revealed will feature a guest vocal by founding bassist Kendra Smith — who has sat out the ongoing reunion, but agreed to appear on a song Wynn calls “the perfect coda to the record.” Wynn announced on his website late last summer that he’d completed work on The Dream Syndicate’s fifth album, the very belated follow-up to 1988’s Ghost Stories. He wrote, “It’s mind-blowingly good and we can’t wait to get it out there,” and said he was looking for the right label to put it out. The album’s title has not yet been announced, nor a release date confirmed. But Wynn has prepared a new band bio for booking agency Billions that discusses the album recorded by the current lineup of Wynn, original drummer Dennis Duck, bassist Mark Walton (who joined after 1984’s Medicine Show) and guitarist Jason Victor, who plays in Wynn’s band, The Miracle 3. It’s in that bio that Wynn drops the shocker about the famously elusive Smith: “Oh, and there was one last surprise, one more perfect link to our past and completing of the circle. One of the more intriguing of the songs we recorded was a hypnotic trance and mantra called ‘Recurring.’ I had a pretty decent lyric and sang a good vocal, but somehow it just didn’t work. The song and the riff were cool, the band’s recording was evocative and beautiful. But I began to realize I wasn’t the right singer for the song. And I knew immediately that the perfect singer would be the only other person to sing lead on a Dream Syndicate song, our original bass player Kendra Smith. I was amazed and delighted that my old friend and bandmate agreed to do it and then wrote some astounding lyrics and sang a vocal that at once as true to the spirit of the song and also turned the whole thing upside down. The song, now called ‘Kendra’s Dream,’ is the perfect coda to the record, tying up loose ends from the past and then opening them up again to the future.” In the meantime, The Dream Syndicate has announced its first shows of 2017: a pair of concerts in Pennsylvania in May, and appearances at a Norwegian festival in June. See full dates below: The Dream Syndicate tour dates: May 18: Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center, Harrisburg, PA May 20: World Cafe Live, Philadelphia, PA June 23: Sun Station Vadsø, Vadsø, Norway June 24: Sun Station Vadsø, Vadsø, Norway PREVIOUSLY ON SLICING UP EYEBALLS Watch The Dream Syndicate’s 30-minute set filmed for KEXP at Bumbershoot Video: The Dream Syndicate live in Cleveland — watch full 100-minute reunion set Q&A: Steve Wynn on The Dream Syndicate reunion, upcoming tour — and new music The Dream Syndicate reuniting to mark 30th anniversary of ‘The Days of Wine and Roses’ Q&A: Dream Syndicate’s Steve Wynn on Baseball Project, ‘Northern Aggression’ More...

                 Shriekback — self-described “weirdshit danceband, now very old indeed” — is planning to play live for the first time in nearly 25 years, and is soliciting fans to help fund a U.K. and European tour with the promise that, if successful, a North American outing could follow by summer 2018. The band, led by co-founder Barry Andrews, has launched a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of raising $43,440 to defray costs of touring and merchandise. As with any Kickstarter, there are various donor rewards, from CD and vinyl releases to a book and even a chance to hang out with the group. The 2017 edition of Shriekback will be an eight-piece, featuring the core of Andrews on keyboards/vocals, Carl Marsh on guitar/vocals, and Martyn Baker on drums, plus Steve Halliwell on guitar/keyboards, Mike Cozzi on guitar, Wendy and Sarah Partridge on vocals, and Scott Firth of Public Image Ltd. on bass. “Unfortunately, no Dave Allen,” Andrews says in the video accompanying the Kickstarter campaign, referring to the former Gang of Four bassist who co-founded Shriekback with Andrews in 1981. “Dave declined. He has a proper job and wants to keep it, and who can blame him. While Dave is in one sense irreplaceable, we are going to replace him.” (Allen, who now works in artist relations for Apple Music, appears supportive of the project, having shared the Kickstarter post on Facebook and asking fans to support it.) Andrews, in the video, says the current lineup is “predominately the group you see on (1987 concert film) ‘Jungle of the Senses,’ the end-of-the-’80s big band.” On its Kickstarter page, Shriekback says it has committed to three U.K. shows in June, “plus some more intimate warm-ups, which will form part of a rewards package for early subscribers.” After that, the band expected to spend the summer playing in Europe, probably at festivals. Should that all be a success, the band — which released a new album, Without Real String or Fish, in 2015 — hopes to play North America “and beyond” by the summer of 2018. “Touring the U.S. and Canada is very expensive, and what we didn’t want to do is do a Kickstarter campaign that, heaven forfend, might not reach its target because it would be so costly,” Andrews says of the decision not wrap North American touring plans into the current fundraising effort. Check out the band’s Kickstarter video below, and, to contribute, head over to Kickstarter.com.

    For the first post-hiatus installment of “120 Minutes” Rewind, we roll the clocks back to an interview segment culled from an early episode, aired in 1987, that finds host Kevin Seal chatting with Justin Sullivan, the frontman of U.K. rockers New Model Army, who’s ID’d in the episode by his early-career stage name, Slade the Leveller. Sullivan tells Seal why and he and so many other young Brits adopted stage names as they were getting started in music, and goes on to discuss the NMA’s classic single “51st State.” Check it out below: xx PREVIOUSLY ON SLICING UP EYEBALLS Earliest known footage of MTV’s ‘120 Minutes’ surfaces: Watch J.J.

    Singer-guitarist Daniel Ash and drummer Kevin Haskins — who spent large swaths of the ’80s and ’90s performing together in the seminal acts Bauhaus, Tones on Tail and Love and Rockets — are reuniting to form a new band called Poptone with Haskins’ daughter Diva that will perform the music of those three classic acts on tour in the U.S. this summer. Details of the project, including tour dates, have not yet been an announced. But a representative of the group confirms to Slicing Up Eyeballs that Poptone will take to the road this summer in the U.S. to perform the music of Bauhaus, Tones on Tail and Love and Rockets. Diva Dompe, Haskins’ daughter, is a musician in her own right who previously played in BlackBlack. Haskins and Ash, who have been DJing together of late, last played together in Bauhaus, with Haskins’ brother David J and frontman Peter Murphy, during a 2006 reunion and in Love and Rockets, again with David J, in a 2008 reunion. The comparatively short-lived Tones on Tail, which featured Ash, Haskins and bassist Glenn Campling, only ever performed live in 1984. Fans will no doubt be overjoyed by Ash’s change of tune. After the the Bauhaus and Love and Rockets reunions in the 2000s, he swore off working with his old bandmates. In fact, in 2009 Ash told Slicing Up Eyeballs he was done with those groups: “It’s boring for me to do those songs that are so old. … You’ve got to realize we’d been working in one capacity or another since 1979. That’s like a lifetime, you know. Time to move on.” It’s not yet known whether Poptone will also dip into the small but beloved catalog of The Bubblemen.

    Australian rock legends Midnight Oil today unveiled plans for their long-awaited reunion, announcing a world tour that will take the band to North and South America, Europe and the U.K., and New Zealand and Australia this year — plus the release of three different box sets, including one that promises 14 hours of previously unheard and rare material. The Oils’ 2017 world tour — the band’s first performances together since 2009’s Sound Relief concerts to benefit the victims of that year’s bushfires — opens April 25 with the first of five Brazilian concerts, followed by 13 dates in the U.S. and Canada in May and June. Then it’s off to the U.K. and Europe for 15 shows in June and July. After a break, the Oils resume with a pair of New Zealand concerts in September and 18 shows in their native Australia in October and November. See full dates below, and you can find on-sale information here. The band, at is press conference today in Sydney, also announced the release of three different box sets: The Full Tank: Limited Super Deluxe Edition features 13 CDs and 1 DVD, and includes all 11 studio albums, two EPs and the “40,000 Watt RS” DVD containing all the band’s music videos. The Vinyl Collection Deluxe Box Set features 13 LPs, including remastered editions of all 11 studio LPs, plus the band’s two 12-inch EPs on 180-gram vinyl. The Over Flow Tank: Limited Super Deluxe DVD Box Set features 8 DVDs and 4CDs. The CDs include one disc of unreleased studio recordings, one disc of unavailable B-sides and rarities, plus 2 live discs drawn from “iconic shows across two decades.” The DVDs include “MTV Unplugged,” a live concert from South Africa’s Ellis Park, and “Only The Strong,” a behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 (all previously unreleased). Plus the films “Black Rain Falls,” “Oils On the Water,” “Saturday Night at the Capitol,” “Blackfella Whitefella” and a bonus DVD with rare and unseen live footage from six different concerts. The Oils, who split in 2002 but have reunited a handful of times, last year announced their intention to reform. The Midnight Oil reunion follows the release last year of frontman, and former politician, Peter Garrett’s solo debut, A Version of Now. Garrett has been performing in support of that record.

    For our first post-hiatus installment of Vintage Video, we spotlight a band that, at least in its live incarnation, is sadly underrepresented on YouTube: dream-pop icons Galaxie 500. So here’s a 7-song, 40-minute set that finds Dean Wareham, Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang performing material from 1988’s Today and 1989’s On Fire, including covers of songs by Jonathan Richman (“Don’t Let Our Youth Go to Waste”) and New Order (“Ceremony”). Check out the full video, via uploader ci1025, below: Setlist: Galaxie 500 at The Point, Atlanta, Ga. — 1/26/90 “Decomposing Trees” “Pictures” “Don’t Let Our Youth Go To Waste” “Blue Thunder” “Plastic Bird” “When Will You Come Home” “Ceremony” PREVIOUSLY ON SLICING UP EYEBALLS Stream: Galaxie 500’s Dean Wareham, ‘Love is Colder Than Death’ — off upcoming mini-LP

                 Peter Murphy will chronicle last year’s Stripped Tour — which, as the the trek’s title suggests, featured stripped-down performances of his solo material and Bauhaus classics — with a 12-track live record this spring called Bare-Boned and Sacred. The album, out March 10 on Metropolis Records, was recorded last April at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City, a semi-acoustic performance that found Murphy backed by guitarist John Andrews and bassist/electric-violinist Emilio “Zef” China. The live set will feature performances of Murphy solo classics such as “Marlene Dietrich’s Favourite Poem,” “All Night Long” and “A Strange Kind of Love,” plus material off his most recent studio album, Lion, and a medley of Bauhaus tracks “King Volcano” and “Silent Hedges.” Murphy also pays tribute to the late David Bowie with a cover of the Hunky Dory track “Bewlay Brothers.” See full tracklist below. Tracklist: Peter Murphy, Bare-Boned and Sacred 1. “Cascade” 2. “Secret” 3. “All Night Long” 4. “Marlene Dietrich’s Favourite Poem” 5. “Bewlay Brothers” (David Bowie Tribute RIP) 6. “A Strange Kind of Love” 7. “The Rose” 8. “Bauhaus Medley” (“King Volcano” and “Silent Hedges”) 9. “Never Fall Out” 10. “Gaslit” 11. “Lion” 12. “Your Face” PREVIOUSLY ON SLICING UP EYEBALLS Peter Murphy debuts ‘Hang Up’ — pounding lead single off Youth-produced ‘Lion’ Peter Murphy’s new album ‘Lion’ arrives in June following Record Store Day preview Peter Murphy’s ‘Love Hysteria’ to receive 2CD reissue with 13 bonus home demos, B-sides Peter Murphy to host private $750-a-head listening party for new album ‘Lion’ More...

                 Lloyd Cole will follow up his 2015 box set collecting his work with The Commotions with a new six-CD package that pulls together his first four solo albums, a “lost” fifth solo album that assembles material from other sources and a disc of 20 previously unreleased demos. The box set, Lloyd Cole in New York: Collected Recordings 1988-1996, is due out March 17 via Universal Music Group. Cole had been taking pre-orders on his site, but his allotment is sold out for the time being; the box set still can be pre-ordered at Amazon.co.uk. The set includes: “Very gently remastered” editions of Cole’s first four solo albums: 1990’s Lloyd Cole, 1991’s Don’t Get Weird on Me, Babe, 1993’s Bad Vibes and 1995’s Love Story. (“There was nothing wrong with the originals,” Cole writes of the remastering.) A “lost” fifth album called Smile If You Want To that features songs that originally appeared on 2001’s Etc. and his 2000 self-titled outing with The Negatives, a band that also featured Jill Sobule. The mix of “Man on the Verge” that appears on this set is previously unreleased. A sixth disc featuring 20 previously unreleased demos, including, Cole says, “several songs which never quite made it, including my version of Nick Cave’s ‘The Ship Song.'” A book written by John O’Connell. A set of postcards. Photography by Kevin Cummins and Youri Lenquette. See full tracklist below: Tracklist: Lloyd Cole, Lloyd Cole in New York: Collected Recordings 1988-1996 CD1: Lloyd Cole 1. “Don’t Look Back” 2. “What Do You Know About Love?” 3. “No Blue Skies” 4. “Loveless” 5. “Sweetheart” 6. “To The Church” 7. “Downtown” 8. “A Long Way Down” 9. “Ice Cream Girl” 10. “Undressed” 11. “I Hate To See You Baby Doing That Stuff” 12. “Waterline” 13. “Mercy Killing” CD2: Don’t Get Weird on Me, Babe 1. “Butterfly” 2. “There For Her” 3. “Margo’s Waltz” 4. “Half Of Everything” 5. “Man Enough” 6. “What He Doesn’t Know” 7. “Tell Your Sister” 8. “Weeping Wine” 9. “To The Lions” 10. “Pay For It” 11. “The One You Never Had” 12. “She’s a Girl and I’m a Man” CD3: Bad Vibes  1. “Morning Is Broken” 2. “So You’d Like To Save The World” 3. “Holier Than Thou” 4. “Love You So What” 5. “Wild Mushrooms More...

    Jangle-pop legends The Feelies return later this month with their first new album in six years and sixth LP overall, an 11-song set titled In Between that’s preceded by the track “Gone, Gone, Gone” — which you can stream below. The New Jersey-based act will release the new album, it’s second post-reunion set of new songs, on Feb. 24 on Bar/None Records. The album is produced by the band’s two founding guitarists, Glenn Mercer and Bill Million, who are joined by drummer Stan Demeski, bassist Brenda Sauter and percussionist Dave Weckerman, all of whom have played with the group since the early ’80s. Between forming in 1976 and dissolving in 1992, and through some lineup adjustments, the Feelies produced four albums, including its classic 1980 debut Crazy Rhythms, featuring layered guitar work that would influence bands such as R.E.M.

    They hadn’t played together in The Cure since the late ’80s, but Lol Tolhurst — the band’s founding drummer, who later moved to keyboards — and Pearl Thompson — who played guitar during three different stints in the group — recently reunited in a recording studio, according to Facebook and Instagram posts by Thompson (via Chain of Flowers). Tolhurst, who was famously ousted from The Cure following the release of 1989’s Disintegration, posted the photo, which you can see above, on Feb. 1 with the caption, “Pearl and Lol in the studio…recording !

    Australian rock powerhouse Midnight Oil is expected to announce details on Friday of its promised reunion tour, shows that would mark the band’s first performances together since 2009’s Sound Relief concerts to benefit the victims of that year’s bushfires. The Oils, who split in 2002 but have reunited a handful of times, last year announced their intention to reform, but not immediately. In May, they posted on social media: “We wanted you to be the first to know that the five of us are planning to do some gigs in Australia and overseas during 2017. It will probably be at least the end of this year before we know exactly where or when.” Now, the band is teasing what’s expected to be that tour announcement, with the date “17.02.17” — this Friday — emblazoned on its website. An email went out today to fans who’d previously registered at the site: “We’re planning a busy year ahead, so if you’d like to stay up to date with everything that’s happening you’ll need to update your details here.” That email also included a photo of guitars set up in what appears to be a recording studio. Perhaps a new album’s in the works, too? Additionally, the Australian Associated Press reports that the media is being prepped: “…this week a mysterious ‘save the date’ email was sent around by promoter Michael Gudinski’s Mushroom Promotions stating a major tour would be announced. On Friday, Mushroom sent out a new message inviting media to board a boat on Sydney Harbour alongside Midnight Oil for a media announcement and Q&A.” Plans for a Midnight Oil reunion follow the release last year of frontman, and former politician, Peter Garrett’s solo debut, A Version of Now. Garrett has been performing in support of that record. Stay tuned for full details of the Oils’ announcement.

    The incomparable Robyn Hitchcock is back with his first new album in two years and his 21st overall, a self-titled record that arrives in April and is preceded by the song “I Want To Tell You About What I Want” — which can be streamed below. Produced by Brendan Benson of The Ranconteurs, the 10-track Robyn Hitchcock, which follows up 2014’s The Man Upstairs, will be released April 21 by Yep Roc Records.  The album was recorded in Nashville, Tenn., where Hitchcock now lives, and finds the onetime Soft Boy backed by a band of Music City vets, including guitarist Annie McCue, bassist Jon Estes and drummer Jon Radford. Emma Swift, Grant Lee Phillips, Gillian Welch and Wilco’s Pat Sansone pitch in on background vocals, too. Hitchcock debuted the track “I Want To Tell You About What I Want” at NPR Music last week, saying: “The original title of the song was ‘My Vision of World Empathy.’ Either we will become extinct and eventually be replaced by cats with articulated thumbs who have evolved the way apes slowly evolved into us. Or we will become empathic and mildly telepathic — people like Donald Trump won’t happen because biologically no human will be born with that lack of empathy. We will become a species that isn’t capable of bullying because we can feel what we’re doing to other people. There is obviously some evolutionary step between the human and the angel that needs to take place. Maybe when we have enough suffering credits our DNA will go, Right! Here we go! Homo angelicus — it can read your mind, it’s compassionate, it can levitate, and it’s a great lover! It shares its fish sticks with you and flies you back in time to see the Velvet Underground! That is what we need to become.” On the touring front, Hitchcock has a few dates on the books, including a pair of performances in New York City of his 1981 solo debut Black Snake Diamond Röle backed by Yo La Tengo, plus an album-release event he’s calling “my first full-band show in Los Angeles in eons.” See those dates below, plus check out the album tracklist and stream the opening track. Stream: Robyn Hitchcock, “I Want To Tell You About What I Want” Tracklist: Robyn Hitchcock, Robyn Hitchcock 1. “I Want To Tell You About What I Want” 2. “Virginia Woolf” 3. “I Pray When I’m Drunk” 4. “Mad Shelley’s Letterbox” 5. “Sayonara Judge” 6. “Detective Mindhorn” 7. “1970 In Aspic” 8. “Raymond and the Wires” 9. “Autumn Sunglasses” 10. “Time Coast” Robyn Hitchcock tour dates: Feb. 28: Rough Trade NYC, Brooklyn, NY (Performing ‘Black Snake Diamond Role’ with Yo La Tengo) March 1: The Bowery Ballroom, New York, NY (Performing ‘Black Snake Diamond Role’ with Yo La Tengo) March 2: Sellersville Theater 1894, Sellersville, PA March 3: Once Ballroom, Somerville, MA May 3: Troubadour, West Hollywood, CA PREVIOUSLY ON SLICING UP EYEBALLS: Listen: Robyn Hitchcock strips down Psychedelic Furs’ ‘Ghost in You’ for new album Robyn Hitchcock touring with Peter Buck, playing Colin Meloy-hosted 60th birthday bash Stream: Robyn Hitchcock, ‘Be Still’ — off forthcoming album ‘Love From London’ Robyn Hitchcock to release digital-only ‘Chronolology’ best-of collection More...
