Weekly Round Up: Friday 18th November

Friday 18th November, 2016 4:36PM

Not much tour news rattling around this week, but one particular announcement was completely off the chain - word hit that on Tuesday Vanilla Ice, Salt N Pepa, Color Me Badd, Tone Loc, Coolio, and Young MC are joining forces for a special tour dubbed 'I Love The 90s Tour', which is making two stops in New Zealand next June. Also announced was one date for The Devin Townsend Project to hit these shores next May on the heels of releasing their powerful new record Transcendence.


In release news, we were stoked to give the debut album from Wellington anarcho punks Unsanitary Napkin its first airing. Also coming out of the capital city was a killer three-song offering from newly formed speed metal band Stalker. And Auckland outfit Cut Off Your Hands let loose 'Hate Somebody' their first new song in five years. From further abroad, we stumbled on an excellent new tune from the Modern Lovers' Jonathan Richman.  And Pennsylvanian punks Pissed Jeans announced a new album and shared rumbling lead single 'The Bar Is Low'.


This week's Caught Live is Tribe Called Quest making an appearance on the Dave Chapelle-hosted edition of Saturday Night Live to perform 'We The People' lifted off their new record We got it from Here... Thank You 4 Your Service...
