BBC has announced a new documentary exploring David Bowie’s pre-Ziggy Stardust era titled David Bowie: The First Five Years. The film completes a trilogy directed by Francis Whately and follows 2017’s David Bowie: The Last Five Years and 2013’s David Bowie: Five Years. The final installment, set for release next year, picks up in 1966, after Bowie changed his name from David Jones, and unpacks the time that produced Bowie’s first four albums and his alien alter ego.
twenty one pilots just released their fifth full-length Trench at the end of last week, but a batch of new tunes doesn’t mean the Clique isn’t still pining for physical copies of the band’s self-titled debut. Twenty-One Pilots was self-released in 2009 by a lineup consisting of current frontman Tyler Joseph as well as former bassist Nick Thomas and drummer Chris Salih. While the album can be streamed across Spotify, Apple Music and heard here on Alt360 Radio (duh!), fans still hope to snag a physical copy. There was even a petition launched two years ago. eBay’s high prices are no joke (which currently range from $850 to $1,200), and it looks like Joseph has an idea of that when calculating his response, “Definitely wouldn’t rule it out, but it’s not in our near future plans,” he says.
YouTube streaming of Green Day’s 2004 song “Wake Me Up When September Ends” spiked around the beginning and end of September, Rolling Stone reports. The song’s view counts roughly doubled its typical daily number on the platform this year on September 1, September 30, and October 1, according to figures provided to the magazine by YouTube. In total, nostalgic millennials and annoying jokesters streamed the American Idiot single 312,040 times on YouTube across those three dates, up from a typical daily average of around 50,000. Based on the company’s most generous estimate of its own royalty rate—which YouTube Global Head of Music Lyor Cohen last August called “over $3 per thousand streams in the U.S.”—that seasonal surge likely produced less than $500 additional dollars in revenue.

Included in the reissue is a 7″ containing two new Raconteurs songs, the titles of which are undisclosed and will apparently remain so until Vault subscribers open up their packages. This is Vault Package #38 in the series. In order to receive the package, fans should subscribe to the Third Man Vault series by October 31. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait for the as of yet untitled third Raconteurs record to come out to hear the new material.

Liam Gallagher has been questioned by London police about a possible assault alleged to have occurred in August, the BBC reports. The alleged incident, which The Sun reported in late August, was a spat between the former Oasis lead singer and his girlfriend, Debbie Gwyther, at the Chiltern Firehouse hotel and restaurant. Gallagher and Gwyther both vehemently denied the accusations following The Sun’s report this summer in which Gallagher stated, “I have never put my hands on any woman in a vicious manner.”
