Thursday Morning Music News: Gary Numan resurfaces, Willie Nelson covers Coldplay and PJ Harvey gets a Mercury Prize encore facebook.com/PJHarvey / Seamus Murphy
Written by

RIP Laurie McAllister, bassist for the Runaways.

For a second time, PJ Harvey has won the Mercury Prize.

Phish is doing another reunion show. This would not really be news save that the band is doing it for a good cause: Its flood-ravaged home state of Vermont.

Nice try, Madge, but there's more than one "material girl" in the world. We wish you better luck on your new album.

Band of Horses appeared on Conan. Watch.

Concert announcements for St. Louis include dates for Das Racist and Ume at the Firebird, Owl City at the Pageant and the Bottle Rockets at the Sheldon.

"Dead Son Rising" is the name of Gary Numan's new album. Details.

KDHX welcomes Bon Iver and Kathleen Edwards to the Pageant on Sunday (it's sold out, so check out our ticket contest). Coincidently, the latter has released a new song featuring the former.

If you missed the fine documentary on A Tribe Called Quest in theatres this summer, you're in luck. The DVD is due out in October.

Flavorpill takes a look at the "witch house" genre. Yeah, we didn't know what it was either.

Clear Channel thinks it has a "Pandora killer."

The Stooges postpone tour after Iggy Pop breaks his foot.

Wild Flag is a new band featuring Sleater-Kinney's Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss, with Helium's Mary Timony and the Minders' Rebecca Cole. Watch a video for the single "Romance." Best lunch break ever.

Southwest Airlines is not down with pants on the ground. Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong was booted from a plane for wearing saggy pants.

Willie Nelson is not down with factory farming, so naturally he has covered Coldplay for Chipotle.

Watch Thurston Moore on Letterman.

Last week we reported on the Lou Reed and Metallica album. Check out the track list but fair warning about the not-safe-for-kids cover art.

Stream "Lucky Now," the new single by Ryan Adams.

Bonnie "Prince" Billy announces new album, "Wolfroy Goes to Town."

NPR is streaming new albums in a sick fashion. Blind Pilot, St. Vincent, A.A. Bondy and Neon Indian are all available for preview.

Sting is turning 60 and throwing himself a party. The concert will feature Lady Gaga, Robert Downey, Jr. and Bruce Springsteen.

"Americana" is now legitimate. At least Merriam-Webster thinks so.
