Mark Lanegan. Again. Some more.

“Riot in My House” – Mark Lanegan Band


Yes, I just made a “Why isn’t everyone a raving Mark Lanegan fan yet?” post a couple of months ago, but I just started a new day job, and Lanegan’s rumbling tones have been helping ease my re-entry at the end of the work day (the album version of that killer live track above is particularly good for shaking off the effects of fluorescent lighting and conversations with normal people).

And there is a bit of news to include:

  • Lanegan has collaborated with British multi-instrumentalist Duke Garwood and the result, an album called Black Pudding, is slated for release on April 16.
  • April 2 will see a deluxe reissue of Mad Season’s sole album Above and will include a track featuring Lanegan called “Locomotive”. You can hear the song at Rolling Stone.
  • Mark will be opening for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds on a run of Australian dates:
    Sat. March 2 SIDNEY MYER MUSIC BOWL Melbourne, VIC
    Sun. March 3 THEBARTON THEATRE Adelaide, NSW
    Wed. March 6 RED HILL AUDITORIUM Perth, WA
    Fri. March 8 RIVERSTAGE, Brisbane, QLD
    Sat. March 9 ENMORE, Sydney

A few more songs on the way out. The first, “Buring Jacob’s Ladder”, is from the video game Rage. The last two are both tracks from Blues Funeral.
