Peter Jackson's West Memphis Three Documentary

West of Memphis: Voices for Justice, a soundtrack album for the film West of Memphis was released today on CD and MP3 and features an all-star line-up of musicians and longtime supporters of the West Memphis Three. West of Memphis, which was given a limited theatrical release last month, is the Peter Jackson-produced documentary about the arrest and 1994 murder conviction of then-teenagers Jessie Misskelley, Damien Echols, and Jason Baldwin – known as the “West Memphis Three” – and how forensic evidence led to their release from prison after more than 18 years.

A few days ago, we posted about the first single off the album, a cover of the David Bowie classic “The Jean Genie” performed by Camp Freddy, a cover band featuring guitarist Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and drummer Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses). Now, 14 tracks off the album, which features acts like Eddie Vedder, Marilyn Manson, Bob Dylan, and Patti Smith, as well as Johnny Depp (see Track #5 by Tonto’s Giant Nuts featuring Depp), is streaming online for FREE.

Lawless (2012)

One of my most anticipated films to be released this year is Lawless, the latest feature from Australian filmmaker John Hillcoat — the director of the blisteringly brilliant 2005 western The Proposition and the 2009 screen adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Road — that is based on the acclaimed historical novel The Wettest County in the World by Matt Bondurant.

Now, the first trailer for the film has made its debut online. You can watch the trailer here below.

The Crow

Relativity Media’s long-in-development reboot of The Crow, based on James O’Barr‘s 1989 independent comic book miniseries, has seen its fair share of talent attach and detach from this troubled project since it was first announced nearly three years ago.

First Stephen Norrington, the director of Blade and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, was given the directing reigns with screenwriter/musician Nick Cave (The Proposition) on scripting duty, but both left the project when the development stalled.

‘The Hangover’ Star Bradley Cooper Enters Negotiations To Become ‘The Crow’

The Movie God   |  @   |

Just a few days ago it was reported that Juan Carlos Fresnadillo had been hired to direct Relativity Media’s remake of the 1994 cult classic, The Crow.

It was expected that things would begin moving forward a bit more rapidly now, and it does appear this is the case. Deadline is reporting that Bradley Cooper, star of The Hangover and The A-Team, has entered into early negotiations to take on the title role originally played by the late Brandon Lee.

The movie tells the story of a musician who’s savagely beaten and killed when he and his fiancee are attacked. He then finds himself resurrected and sets off on a quest to find and destroy all who were responsible for he and his love’s deaths.

Danzig Recording A Covers Album

Glenn DanzigGlenn Danzig has announced that he is in the studio and currently recording a covers album. Fans of Danzig will know this project is one the artist has been talking about for some time, and five songs have already been recorded for the album. While Danzig hasn’t released full details yet, it’s understood that among the song selections will be tributes to Black Sabbath and Elvis Presley.

While the Sabbath and Elvis selections, I believe, are somewhat “predictable” choices for Danzig (I imagine he’ll probably throw a song by The Doors in there somewhere too), I would like to think he will choose some tracks that might be a surprise for his fans. I could imagine him doing an interesting interpretation of Nick Cave‘s “Red Right Hand” or a classic rock song like “House of the Rising Sun” by The Animals.

This is all just speculation on my part of course, but as a fan I’d like to see Danzig tackle some covers that are a little more unpredictable. Either way, it will be interesting to see what Glenn comes up with for this project. Maybe he could include a hidden track of him paying tribute to the “Glenn Danzig Shopping List” :)

Aussie Rock

I thought that for this Australia Day (which is celebrated every January 26 down under), I’d link up with our recent Geeks of Doom theme of celebrating the 25th anniversary of some of the music and albums released during 1986. That year was a big one for Australian artists, with some key releases stamping their mark on the history of the Aussie music industry and the rock scene down under.

From Metal to Pop, from Traditional Alternative to Post-Punk, join me in a look back at some of the biggest and more memorable music releases from Australia 25 years ago in 1986.

Watch Now: Shane MacGowan, Nick Cave, Johnny Depp & Others Cover ‘I Put A Spell On You’ For Haiti

Johnny Depp

Shane MacGowan, best known as singer and songwriter in the band The Pogues, was moved by the devastation we’ve seen in Haiti, as most of us were. Wanting to help, he and his girlfriend Victoria Clarke started putting together a musical collaboration with some well-known and respected names in the industry to raise some money for the cause.

The result is a wonderful cover of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins‘ “I Put a Spell on You,” which was first recorded in 1956. Joining MacGowan on the collaboration is people like Nick Cave, members of The Sex Pistols, The Pretenders, The Clash, and even the talents of none other than Pirates of the Caribbean and Alice in Wonderland star Johnny Depp.

Musical collaborations seem to be popular when it comes to the tragedy in Haiti: Recently a new group of the most popular music stars were brought in to cover legendary group song “We Are The World.” Sadly, that group included the likes of Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, and Justin Bieber, who are about as far from the names that they were covering as one can get. Hopefully not a sign of the evolution of talent on our planet.

For those of you who can’t stand even the thought of that group, I assure you that this song is much, much, much better. Click on over to the other side for more and to check out this fantastic collaboration.
