  • The Cure’s 14th studio album (a double disc of 33 songs) delayed again after band leader Robert Smith admits he’s having trouble “writing lyrics.” How about something about grey cats, spiders, hanging gardens? The album is now set to come out in May of 2008, fully two years after its initial release date. (Contact Music)

  • Amy Winehouse enters hospital for “exhaustion”; reports suggest she suffered a drug overdose, but is still saying “no” to rehab. (NME)

  • Winning the UK Observer’s “Best Cover Versions Ever” poll: Kate Bush? (Observer Music Monthly)

  • The Beastie Boys played Brooklyn last night… for the first time ever? Finally, they can, er, catch up on their sleep. (Brooklyn Vegan)
  • HERE ARE THE FACTS:

    Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

    As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

    Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
