LCD Soundsystem just kidding about retirement; Springsteen to release massive "Darkness" box set; Rock the Bells set times

ralph stanleyThis will still be happening, apparently. (Ruvan Wijesooriya)

- He's not exactly at the Brett Favre-level of indecisiveness but James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem already seems to be backing off his previous claims of retiring his band. In a new interview he tells The Quietus that he'll still record some 12" records and might even be up for a new full-length.

- Do you love Bruce Springsteen's 1978 album "Darkness on the Edge of Town"? Do you love it six discs worth? That's the size of the box set that will be released on Nov. 16. In addition to the remastered album there will be two discs of rarities, a making-of-the-album DVD and live DVDs of the band playing the album's songs back in the '70s and in 2009. Dads - this is what you are getting as a present this holiday season.

- Set times for Sunday's Rock the Bells festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion have been released. The Wiz Khalifa-Lauryn Hill conflict doesn't look promising but we're confident one of the stages will be running late.

- Here is a video of Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots falling down on stage, exposing him as a klutz and a lip-syncher, as his voice can still be heard despite his tumble. Oops!

The Springsteen box set is huge, in fact it is overwhelming, Xmas in August. With the much-anticipated release of the commemorative box set for Darkness on the Edge of Town slated for November, Bruce Springsteen's classic record is getting renewed attention. For our own preview of what's to come, we contacted Dick Wingate, who was intimately involved in the launch and marketing of the album and tour. He offers an insider's view of what the Darkness era meant to Bruce and the band, while painting an often-humorous behind-the-scenes account of some of the tour's highlights.Enjoy, and be certain to check out the book The Light in Darkness, which one fan said, "… would also make a great companion piece to the much anticipated commemorative Darkness box set…"
