Julian Casablancas Doin' The Solo Thang
No jams yet, but if ever there was an occurrence that would have "da innanet goin' nuts", it's The Strokes' ever incomprehensible lead singer dropping a solo LP. Release of Phrazes For The Young is set for some time in the fall.
This HAS to be better than Albert Hammond Jr.'s thing, right?! I saw homie live twice in "support" of Bloc Party and...who the hell was the other show...Incubus, yes. Both times, there was a mass rush to the back of the joint as people scrambled to get overpriced beer rather than be put to sleep by the misguided Stroke.
Believe it or not, this is apparently the first time I've referenced The Strokes on this (11 month old) blog. Time for an album, gentlemen!
