Staff Benda Bilili have an album out! I'm sure you remember them from when flapjax at midnite made your day with this post.

They were the subject of a cover story in Le Monde 2 (Le Monde's weekend supplement). It had some really cool photographs, but nothing is online.
Apparently, they're booked to play summer festivals in Europe, if they're able to leave the country.

Both links in French, sorry. Also, the FAQ isn't so clear on commercial links, I hope this is ok.

In other music followup, Coldplay says they're innocent, man.

In other music followup, you favorite band still sucks.

Actually, I wanted to say that your favourite band is really awesome. I totally love them too. Why don't we go back to my apartment, have some wine and talk about how great they are.

Did I mention I have some etchings by the bass player in your favorite band? Would you like to come see them?

Did you say the bass player?

I've got to get up early for work tomorrow.

(Here's an Amazon link to the Staff Benda Bilili album, by the way.)

Thank god you said etchings because if it was charcoal sketches, the answer would be "absolutely fucking not."

Signed to the greatest record label in the world, naturally. Good for them!

this band is incredible - and I'll fight anyone who says that they suck.
