Friday Sighs, “Music News Day”

  • Did someone say “unicorn”? Neko Case, T-Pain and MF Doom will provide the voices for characters in an upcoming Adult Swim cartoon called, er, “Cheyenne Cinnamon and the Fantabulous Unicorn of Sugar Town Candy Fudge.” Good title, but somehow I know it won’t be nearly as good as the first season of Aqua Teen.
  • Speaking of adults, Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore has provided the music (link possibly NSFW) for an adult film called “Extra Action (and Extra Hardcore),” out on DVD March 18th. Wocka waa, wocka wah waaaa? The video is being directed by Richard Kern who has also made some Sonic Youth videos, so that helps explain that, I guess.
  • Both Beyonce and Foo Fighters have promised to attend the Grammys, no matter whether it’s a full-on ceremony with union writers penning the jokes or a guy tossing the awards out of the back of a truck. The Foos’ manager, John Silva, extended support to striking writers but confirmed the band’s commitment to the Grammy ceremony.
  • Some sad news: Lily Allen, who announced her pregnancy last month, has had a miscarriage. A representative for the singer asked for privacy for Allen and her partner, Chemical Brother Ed Simons. Messages of support are being posted at Allen’s MySpace page.
