Ex Christian gospel singer Kathryn Elizabeth Hudson turned Katy Perry or “every college jock’s wet dream” apparently let the airport security in Glasgow have it yesterday.
The Californian singer, who appeared at Glasgow’s Barrowland last night, was arriving in Scotland off a 26-hour marathon flight from Australia where she had performed earlier this week.
Who could blame her for blowing up at security when they insisted on checking her 5 cases after the 3 flight trip.
She said: “I swear, I never feel more like cattle than when I have to go through airport security. They hate their lives and they hate us for sure.
“By the last flight, the third time going through security, I lost it on a security person.”
A re-mastered, deluxe version of Nirvana’s ‘Bleach’ album will be released later this year to celebrate it’s 20th anniversary.
The double CD/EP edition will also feature a 1990 concert by the band at Portland’s Pine Street Theatre, as well as a 16-page booklet featuring previously unreleased photos.
Bleach was the debut album by the US grunge band and was released on June 15, 1989. Originally a modest commercial success, the album gained renewed interest after the runaway success of Nirvana’s second album ‘Nevermind‘, and went on to be certified platinum in the US.
It was recorded primarily at the Reciprocal Recording Studios in Seattle, Washington, and was produced by Jack Endino. The sessions began on Christmas Eve 1988 and culminated at the end of January 1989. Kurt Cobain would later claim pressures from the band’s label, Sub Pop, influenced the album: “There was this pressure from Sub Pop and the scene to play rock music,” he said. “Strip it down and make it sound like Aerosmith.”
Acclaimed film director Robert Zemeckis is reportedly planning to make a new 3D version of The Beatles‘ 1968 animated film ‘Yellow Submarine‘.
The film will be made for Disney, who are said to be looking to secure the rights to the film’s legendary soundtrack which includes ‘Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band,’ ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,’ ‘With a Little Help From my Friends’, ‘All You Need Is Love’, ‘All Together Now’, ‘Baby You’re a Rich Man’ and ‘When I’m 64.’ The deal being struck by Disney would include plans for a new Broadway musical as well as the new film.
Legendary Clash frontman Joe Strummer was born in Ankara, Turkey.
Born as John Graham Mellor to nurse Anna Mackenzie and British diplomat Ronald Mellor, Strummer spent much of his early life travelling through various countries with his family. When he was 9, the family settled in England and Strummer began attending the City of London Freemen’s School in Surrey. It was here that Strummer began to develop an interest in rock music; like many children of his generation, he would listen to early US rock stars such as Little Richard and The Beach Boys.
By 1973, Strummer had moved to Wales and was studying at Newport College of Art. He soon dropped out, but while in Wales he formed his first band, The Vultures, with a small group of friends. For a year or so, Strummer would juggle his duties as guitarist and part time singer for the band with his other job as a gravedigger. After the breakup of The Vultures in 1974, Strummer returned to London and formed another band with his new roommates. Called The 101′ers, the band gigged extensively around London pubs, and in 1975 Strummer adopted the stage name he would become famous by. He apparently took the name as a self-deprecating reference to his limited rhythm guitar playing, which was a result of him learning to play right-handed despite being naturally left-handed. The 101′ers released a Strummer-penned track entitled ‘Keys To Your Heart’ as their debut single.
