Gomez, Tricky, Chems, and SFA Tour Updates

LOTS of new tours to report on... We've got confirmation on a U.S. mini-tour from GOMEZ - It's a quickie - just six dates, major cities only, in late September. Plus we've got the TRICKY tour now being confirmed by the official website. Add to that another confirmed US leg for the CHEMICAL BROTHERS. Beyond that, we've put the BIS tour dates up hopefully in enough time for you to score tickets.


Tricky's Pop Muzik

Odd remake alert: NME is reporting today that the new single from TRICKY, due July 26, will include an unlikely cover version of M's classic electro/disco track, "Pop Muzik" on the flipside. The single, "For Real," is the first release from Tricky's forthcoming album, "Juxtapose."

Tricky and Martina Part Ways

TRICKY has announced that his new album, "Angels With Dirty Faces," which is in stores this week, will be his last with vocalist Martina. According to a report from MTV, apparantly the two of them have taken offense at a recent article that dubbed them the "Ike and Tina Turner of the 90's," so they're severing ties after this album. Tricky's launching a US tour later this summer, no word yet if Martina will be involved.
