Kings Of Leon bass player Jared Followill has taken a dig at his older brother Caleb’s songwriting, and while guitarist Matthew also revealed he has to visit his brother to collect his royalties.
Speaking in today’s Daily Star newspaper, Jared said: “Caleb was really weird when we started. Everything that I thought was quite charming about us, he wanted to lie about. For me it’s hard having an opinion on this band, if I wasn’t involved I can’t imagine liking us a lot, just because I only control 25% of it.”
“We started seriously writing the songs when we got back home from tour. I got a call from Caleb going: ‘I’m sitting here writing the next album by myself.’ And we’re like: ‘Oh no, you’re not.’ We ended up going to his house so that when the record comes out he can’t go: ‘Dude, I’m getting 70% of this shit.’”
Our weekly round-up of highlights includes new albums from Editors and The Flaming Lips, a few appearances from New Order legend Bernard Sumner, and another eclectic line-up on Later… with Jools Holland.
Editors return this week with their third studio album ‘In This Light and On This Evening’. Their first since 2007′s ‘An End Has a Start‘, the album has received generally positive reviews from critics, with one calling it a ‘a career peak for the band’.
Also returning this week are American veterans The Flaming Lips – ‘Embryonic‘, the band’s first double album, is out on Monday, elsewhere Liverpool-based Echo & The Bunnymen release their eleventh studio album ‘The Fountain‘.
After bursting onto the crowded indie scene in 2004, The Rakes have subsequently gone from strength to strength as many others have fallen away, and released “Klang“, their most well-received album to date in March this year.
