THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

 

...with THE SWEET!  The bubble-glam rockers are probably best known for the trifecta of "Little Willy," "Ballroom Blitz" and "Fox on the Run," though they also charted with the harder-edged "Action" and the more ballad-y "Love is Like Oxygen."  All of those clips also feature the band's rather unique fashion sense, but you have to see the clip for "Wig Wam Bam" -- complete with headdress -- to see the band at its most ridiculous.  BONUS: "All That Glitters" is a BBC documentary originally broadcast in February 1974 charting a day in the life of The Sweet.

EDDIE VEDDER channeled Pete Townshend and played "Better Man" --possibly my fave Pearl Jam song-- for Letterman, who ends his TV show tonight, iirc.

THE VACCINES advance stream English Graffiti.

LITTLE WINGS advance streams Explains.

WAXAHATCHEE plays a mini-set at KEXP.

TENNIS performs in the WNYC Soundcheck studio.

NAP EYES drop "Dark Creedence" ahead of Whine of the Mystic (is it a reissue if the original run was 200?).  Very Velvetsy.

SPOON covers The Cramps' "TV Set" for the Poltergeist soundtrack.

MATES OF STATE drop "Beautiful Kids" ahead of You’re Going To Make It.

PETE TOWNSHEND, who just turned 70, talks to The Economist. So why not "Rough Boys"?

DAVID CROSBY apologized to NEIL YOUNG & DARYL HANAH for calling the latter "a purely poisonous predator."

JOHN LYDON, a/k/a Johnny Rotten talks with Isaac Fitzgerald (BuzzFeed Books) about his new memoir, Anger is an Energy.

PAUL WELLER: The Ace Face.

MUMFORD & SONS shed their identity...for what?

SIMON PEGG (Shaun of the Dead, Star Trek, Mission Impossibles III and IV) is having second thoughts about sci-fi and superheroes.

CANNES banned women in flat shoes from the red carpet.

SOFIA VERGARA has learned something about men.

BRUCE JENNER revealed he has no plans for gender reassignment surgery.

RUSSIA: Police in Britain thought Alexander Perepilichnyy, a whistleblower who fled Russia in fear of the Kremlin, had died of natural causes. But a killer flower was found in his stomach. ALSO: Russia has closed a transport corridor that had allowed NATO militaries to deliver supplies to Afghanistan through Russian territory.

THE ISLAMIC STATE: Anyone telling you the Islamic State is in decline isn't paying attention. The fact that the Baghdad government now is considering moving Shiite militias to Ramadi, a predominantly Sunni city, suggests that Iraq’s central government still lacks adequate support from Iraq’s Sunni Arabs to defeat ISIS, a Sunni revolutionary movement. This spells trouble for Iraqi and American plans to defeat the terrorist group.
