Rumours of a new guitarist!

April 30, 2007

Wolfmother new guitaristMembers on the Wolfmother forums are feverishly discussing the news/rumour that a new guitarist might be joining the band soon. Unfortunately I have no source to quote, but apparently the news was in an interview that appeared in the Australian Sunday Mail this weekend.

Forum member wolfranco says:

“there was a one page interview with wolfmother and on the bottom it said there will be another guitarist joining the band, after may sometime, it said he is 18 years of age from NSW. he will be joining the band when they start recording their second album.”

Fans reaction on the forum is mixed, with many worried about the impact it might have on the band, not to mention the age difference.

If you have read this news also, let us know. And any further details on this mysterious newcomer would be appreciated!

[update]Having had no confirmation of the source, I have to assume that this was a hoax/wind-up. It has raised some interesting discussion, so not all is lost – but the likelihood of it being ‘real’ news is small.

Pleased to meet you …

April 1, 2007

It appears that we were right about a couple of things. Firstly, that Wolfmother are indeed going to have a song that is part of the Spiderman 3 soundtrack. And secondly, that the song is almost definitely “Love Attacker”.

However, it appears that the quote stating that that was a working title appears to be true, as all confirmation names the new song as “Pleased to meet you”. Which is part of the “Love Attacker” lyrics, so one must presume … genius eh?

Here is the full list of songs on the soundtrack for those that are interested.

Snow Patrol – “Signal Fire”
The Killers – “Move Away”
Yeah Yeah Yeahs – “Sealings”
Wolfmother – “Pleased to Meet You”
The Walkmen – “Red River”
Black Mountain – “Stay Free”
The Flaming Lips – “Spider-Man vs. Muhammad Ali”
Simon Dawes – “Scared of Myself”
Chubby Checker – “The Twist”
Rogue Wave – “Sight Lines”
Coconut Records – “Summer Day”
Jet – “Falling Star”
Sounds Under Radio – “Portrait of a Summer Thief”
Wasted Youth Orchestra – “A Letter to St. Jude”
The Oohlas – “Small Parts”
