CL Sound Bites: Trent Reznor's film scores, Ramones finally get a Grammy, Pearl Jam, Flaming Lips, and more

>>> Pearl Jam planned a busy 2011 to commemorate their 20th anniversary. Their Live on Ten Legs live (duh) LP just dropped, we've got deluxe reissues of Vs. and Vitalogy down the pike, some sort of destination festival, and filmmaker Cameron Crowe's Pearl Jam Twenty documentary. A rough cut of the film brought bassist Jeff Ament to tears at times - particularly during recaps of the Roskilde tragedy in 2000 when nine concertgoers died during their set.

>>> Wayne Coyne (right)  says rather than untold amounts of time cobbling an album together, Flaming Lips will release one new song per month throughout 2011.

"Not that I think the old way was boring, but to spend another two years with the same 13 songs, it's just like fuck ... I think we're going to just start to do things and put it out. Once we get 11 or 12 songs together, maybe we'll do something else with it. We want to try to live through our music as we create it instead of it being a collection of the last couple years of our lives."

>>> Johnny Rotten must be feeling uncharacteristically sentimental. Between the Public Image Ltd reunion and the recent scrapbook release, now he's talking about maybe reuniting The Sex Pistols and possibly writing new music with them.

>>> "New Order could play a gig together again." says Stephen Morris, despite all the post-breakup animosity.

>>> 13 years after their breakup, North Carolina indie darlings Archers of Loaf played a surprise set opening for a local band! Grab some video and details over at Pitchfork.

>>>Congrats to Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor (right) on his Golden Globe trophy [UPDATE: and Oscar Nomination] for Best Original Score for The Social Network! The recognition followed news that Reznor snagged scoring duties for the upcoming American remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. (The Swedish original has been sitting in my Netflix streaming queue for months!) With this victory Reznor takes another opportunity to slag the music biz:

"Not to be disrespectful, but the weight of a Grammy feels much less important than the film side of this. The music business has very much done everything it can to lessen the weight and importance of music as art."

We should be reading any day now about Trent becoming a first time father.

>>> Speaking of music industry (ir)relevance, Ramones, whose principal members are all dead, will receive a lifetime achievement Grammy at the 2011 ceremony. Too little, too late, NARAS.
