The Lords of Salem Logo

“From the singular mind of horror maestro Rob Zombie comes a chilling plunge into a nightmare world where evil runs in the blood. The Lords of Salem tells the tale of Heidi (Sheri Moon Zombie), a radio station DJ living in Salem, Massachusetts, who receives a strange wooden box containing a record, a “gift from the Lords.” Heidi listens, and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of the town’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the “Lords of Salem” returning for revenge on modern-day Salem?”

The Lords of Salem will be in theaters April 15, 2013.

Singer threatens prime minister with legal action if he uses his songs to promote the Conservative party at next election ‘I can’t say I love the idea of a banker liking our music’ … Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.

Thom Yorke has threatened to “sue the living shit” out of David Cameronif the prime minister uses a Radiohead song in a future election campaign.

“I can’t say I love the idea of a banker liking our music, or David Cameron,” the singer told Dazed & Confused. “I can’t believe he’d like [2011’s] King of Limbs much. But I also equally think, who cares? … As long as he doesn’t use it for his election campaigns, I don’t care. I’d sue the living shit out of him if he did.”

Keane found themselves in that position in 2010, when their song Everybody’s Changing was played at a Conservative party launch. “Am horrified,” wrote drummer Richard Hughes. “I will not vote for them.”

While Yorke holds strong opinions on social and environmental issues, DJing for Occupy London and attending the UN’s climate change conference in 2009, he admitted that “politics is not a fun thing to write about”. These days the Radiohead frontman tries to calm himself down – and perk up his spirits – with yoga and meditation. “I’m not as volatile as I used to be, which is good, ‘cos I’d have burned out if I was,” he said. “I can still be a nightmare, though.”

The 44-year-old is also a workaholic. “When we got back from tour, I gave myself a week off from the studio and that was it,” he said. “I was cheating anyway, because I was actually working on my laptop on the quiet.” Over the past year, that has mostly meant working with his side project Atoms for Peace, whose debut album is out on 25 February.

“It’s not like [2006 solo album] The Eraser at all,” he said. “But it’s not a band album either; it doesn’t sound like a band playing … We wanted to go into the song realm, because it felt good to do that. [But] if it were up to me, every track would be 10 minutes long … To me, the Atoms album is not dancey enough.”

Despite this, Yorke said he could never imagine making an instrumental album. “I’ve got all these nice little boxes for my studio, and I kind of half know how to use most of them,” he said. “Really, I just enjoy writing words sitting at a piano. I tend to lose interest in the drum machine.”

British synthpoppers team with experimental German DJ for lush reworking

Pet Shop Boys’ Elysium single “Memory of the Future” rode blissfully arpeggiated keys that twinkled and glistened, but on this remix from experimental German DJ Ulrich Schnauss, the British synth-poppers enter a deeper, lower groove that hypnotizes with lush textures and pulsating layers of blips. “We’ve always liked Ulrich Schnauss’s visionary albums and are thrilled that he has created a beautiful mix which sounds both like him and us,” Neil Tennant tells Rolling Stone. Pet Shop Boys are releasing “Memory of the Future” as a single with B-sides and remixes on January 1st.

Morrissey has blamed the royal family for the suspected suicide of Jacintha Saldanha. The singer accused the royals of “staggering arrogance” following the death of Saldanha, a nurse who was tricked by two Australian DJs into revealing details of the Duchess of Cambridge‘s pregnancy.

“It wasn’t because of two DJs in Australia that this woman took her own life, it was the pressure around her,” Morrissey told New Zealand’s 3News. While much of this stress can be blamed on the press, he said, or the “maximum pressure [of] … the Palace and Clarence House,” he called on the duchess to take direct responsibility.

“[She] was in the hospital, as far as I could see, for absolutely no reason,” the singer said. “She feels no shame about the death of this woman, she’s saying nothing about the death of this poor woman. The arrogance of the British royals is absolutely staggering.”

Morrissey has even accused Kate Middleton of being in hospital for spurious reasons, despite doctors diagnosing her with the serious complaint known as hyperemesis gravidarum. “Does she have a health condition?” the singer asked. “Is it anorexia or is it pregnancy? … I mean morning sickness already? So much hoo haw and then suddenly as bright as a button as soon as this poor woman dies she’s out of hospital? It doesn’t ring true.”

This is in stark contrast to the medical evidence, which views hyperemesis gravidarum as a serious medical condition with symptoms that include 24-hour periods of vomiting and dehydration. Hospitalisation is a common consequence for those who suffer from it.

Buckingham Palace must receive “thousands” of prank calls every day, the 53-year-old said. Blaming the incident on the DJs, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, “is just a way of distracting people”. “The fact they got so far probably astonished them beyond belief. But the pressure put on the woman who connected the callers was probably so enormous that she took her own life … And we forget about that and of course the royals are exonerated as always.”

Morrissey is a long-time critic of the monarchy. “They’re absolutely horrible people,” he said last year, on American TV. “I think they’re arrogant, horrible dictators.”

Greig and Christian have both apologised for their prank call, as has their employer, 2DayFM. According to the Associated Press, executives at the radio station could face criminal charges for airing the conversation without its participants’ consent.
