Queens of Country update

Well known Tool haters Pitchfork have today posted an update on the forthcoming Queens of Country movie by Blood Into Wine directors Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke:

Last year, Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock re-ignited his side project Ugly Casanova to contribute songs to the documentary 180° South. A year later, he’s on his making-music-for-movies grind again. Brock will compose the score for the upcoming feature film Queens of Country, written and directed by Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke (Blood Into Wine,The Heart Is a Drum Machine) and starring Lizzy Caplan (of the late, beloved TV series "Party Down"), Ron Livingston (Office Space), and (wait for it) Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan.

According to a press release, the plot of Queens of Country revolves around "Caplan’s character Jolene and a lost iPod, which the obsessed country music fan is convinced belongs to her soul mate. Jolene quickly finds herself in a hilarious adventure of mistaken identities, line dancing competitions, time machines and doppelgangers." So yeah, your typical lost-iPod-time-machine-country-music-rom-com flick, sounds like. And they say the film industry’s run out of ideas!

The movie, as well as Brock’s score, is slated for a 2012 release. Watch a video of Ugly Casanova performing the 180° South contribution "Here’s to Now" below while you continue to wonder whether Modest Mouse will ever make another album.

No doubt all boned up over the Modest Mouse involvement.  Still it’s been a while since we’ve had an update on this movie and thanks for Jason for the tip!

Well following the Pitchfork hates Tool comment I just read the reviews they posted for 10,000 Days and Lateralus. The Lateralus review in particular certainly contains some giggle worthy material. I’d post the links but I know a few of you are sensitive souls!

A PERFECT CIRCLE played a brand new song, reportedly titled “By And Down”, during last night’s (Wednesday, June 29) concert in Portland.

Sounds like Brena with a badass ending to me.
