Ian Brown Remixes the Manics

Ian Brown will be remixing the next Manic Street Preachers single, "Let Robeson Sing". NME reports that he's going to bring in Aziz Ibrahim and Inder Goldfinger to help, and Brown will provide the vocals.

Ian Brown US Troubles

A little bit of finality to the IAN BROWN saga. Interscope Records' web site still shows him belonging to their roster, but the US tour is officially off, with the exception of TWO dates: New York (rescheduled to June 25th) and Los Angeles (still on June 29th.) Though Interscope still has him listed as a signed artist, whenever a label pulls tour support like this, it's a baaaaaad sign.

Most of Ian Brown's Tour is Cancelled

We're getting a little irked that we can't find out the official story on the unfolding IAN BROWN U.S. tour story, but we're still trying. This we know: The only two dates that havn't been cancelled as of yet are New York and Los Angeles. The circulating rumour is that Ian's been dropped by his American label, and that they've cut off tour support. We honestly don't know if this is true or not - there's been NO official statement yet. Again, we'll keep you updated.

Possible Ian Brown Tour Cancellations

We are receiving word today that IAN BROWN is cancelling some, if not all, of his North American tour. We know at this time that the Canadian shows, as well as the Boston gig, have been pulled. More details as we know them...

Ian Brown Covers The King of Pop

Free Ian!

Lovable, huggable Monkey boy IAN BROWN gets released from the pokey this week on good behavior, after serving half of his sentence in Strangeways Prison for his infamous airborne antics earlier this year on a trans-European flight. Brown has cancelled all pending tour plans to instead begin work on his second solo album. In the meantime, we can look forward to a one-off single with Brown and U.N.K.L.E., due out in the UK in February.

Frontmen In Trouble with The Law

IAN BROWN is singin' those jailhouse blues again, after his appeal from a four-month sentence for threatening behavior on an airplane was denied. His UK tour, scheduled for November, has now been rescheduled for after his release. In the U.S., his long-delayed "Unfinished Monkey Business" album has been pushed back yet again, this time to early 1999. It is doubtful he could tour the U.S. until around April or May of 1999. Meanwhile, OASIS frontman Liam Gallagher had another run-in with "The Man" earlier this week after reportedly smashing up a photographer's camera.


Ian Brown Free At Last

Just when we thought King Monkey was all tied up in the pokey, IAN BROWN has been freed from jail after only a couple days, pending an appeal. All touring and promotions commitments appear to be pushed back to the New Year.

It's Prision For Ian Brown

IAN BROWN, of course formerly of the STONE ROSES, was sentenced last week in Manchester Magistrate's court to spend the next four months imprisoned, due to that infamous air scuffle earlier this year, where he threatened to cut off the hands of a flight attendant while onboard a British Airways flight from Paris to Manchester. Thoughts of the post-jail, hard-edged, street-savvy New Millenium Monkey are disturbing indeed, but perhaps we can hope that he'll use his newfound spare time to learn to sing, eh?
