Matthew Good’s Hospital Music

July 16th, 2007 No comments

So according to our countdown clock, we’ve got 14 days and 10 hours until the official release of Hospital Music.

Since the album’s been streaming on Matthew’s website for the last month or so, we already know what to expect. I’ve never particularly been a fan of the pre-release idea and this is probably why I’m not feeling overly excited about the new release. But it is good, you could even say Avalanche good. I guess I’m just trying to say that the whole “stream the album before it’s released” thing kind of ruined that Christmas morning feeling for me.

My advice to you, if you like the band, just wait it out to the release date rather than having a listen beforehand.

You can read more about Hospital Music on our parent site: Near Fantastica or you can order the album for $12.96.

May 31st, 2007 No comments

It’s been three days now since I went to The Police Concert at GM Place, it was awesome. It was a pleasure and an honour to watch their first show on the reunion tour. I encourage you all to see them. I wish I’d taped it.

The Police are back?

January 28th, 2007 No comments

Every little thing the Police ever did was magic to the band’s fans. Yesterday morning, Rock 101 FM’s Bro’ Jake Show reported that the ’80s rockers were rehearsing in town at North Vancouver’s Lions Gate Studios, preparing for a highly-anticipated 30-year reunion tour.

No one was available officially to confirm or deny the report. A receptionist would only allow that “there have been a lot of calls this morning.”

Rock 101 received unconfirmed reports Wednesday night that two large semis arrived at the studio and started unloading gear marked with Police logos and those of its former lead singer, Sting. The radio station reported some Sting sightings on the slopes of Whistler yesterday, too.

Rumours of the platinum-selling, platinum-blond act returning to the stage to perform have circulated since March 2003, when the Police last played together at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.

They heated up again last month when a story in the United Kingdom’s Daily News reported that the group would tour this summer in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the release of its first major single, “Roxanne.”

On Jan. 3, confirmed the story. On Jan. 14, Sting pretty much admitted to a coming tour when he told the Television Critics Association that all former members were talking.

“We started 30 years ago, so it would be nice to do something to celebrate,” Sting is quoted as saying. “We don’t quite know what, but we’re talking about it.”

Talk of a Police presence at the Grammy telecast on Feb. 11 from Los Angeles’ Staples Center is also circulating. was awash in submissions that the band would tour in North America, Europe and Asia. A total of 80 dates is being considered.

Talk is that the combo will appear in April at the Coachella Valley Music Festival in California, which has a history of booking retro ’80s acts as headliners. Fuelling these reports is that “Roxanne” is supposedly the sign-on password for the early ticket sales, which start tomorrow at 10 a.m.

If the Police are indeed rehearsing in Vancouver, it joins a growing list of superstars using the city as a pre-tour practice and opening-night locale.

U2 and the Rolling Stones used GM Place for rehearsal space in 2006, while Nickelback and Foo Fighters have used Pacific Coliseum. Bob Dylan spent four days over Thanksgiving at the Commodore. Country singer Dierks Bentley recently holed up at Pacific Coliseum before beginning his latest tour. Previous years have seen Janet Jackson, Aerosmith and others take advantage of Vancouver’s relative anonymity and world-class technical crews.

“More often that not, tours will start or end here and, honestly, the difference in the exchange rate is still sympathetic for artists,” says Ian Low of promoter House Of Blues.

I hope this happens. I’ve always wanted to see The Police at GM Place.

Fingers crossed.
