If you’re a Paul McCartney fan, you’re likely loving all the publicity the man has been doing around his brand new studio album, NEW (don’t forget to enter to win a copy of the deluxe edition from us). But even before this week, 2013 has certainly been a banner year for Macca. Not only did it see the massive rerelease of the Wings Over America live album (we talked about that here), but around the same time the classic live concert film Paul McCartney and Wings: Rockshow was reissued on DVD and Blu-ray by our pals at Eagle Rock.
Check out the trailer and then get our take on Rockshow after the jump!
Unless you’ve been living under a classic rock…rock…you know that Sir Paul McCartney has released his brand new solo album, not so cryptically titled ‘NEW’. To celebrate McCartney’s first solo album in six years, our pals at Universal Music Canada have given us three copies of the deluxe edition of ‘NEW’ that we want to put in your hands. Here’s what you have to do:
1) Follow us on twitter @biffbampop
3) Tell us via Twitter or on our Facebook page what your favourite Paul song is – it could Beatles, Wings or solo Paul.
That’s it. Contest closes Thursday night at 11:59pm. We’ll choose three random winners on Friday, October 18th. Contest is open to citizens of the world!
Now, check out ‘Queenie Eye’ from Sir Paul McCartney’s ‘NEW’ and enter to win your copy!
It’s a brand new Biff Bam Popcast, featuring Glenn Walker, JP Fallavollita, Jason Shayer, Andy Burns and very special guest panelist, writer Michael Moreci (Hoax Hunters, Mini Comics Included, ReincarNATE). In this spoiler filled episode, we take on Man Of Steel and discuss what we thought did and didn’t work, creative choices and much more.
We also celebrate the 71st birthday of Sir Paul McCartney, who recently had his classic live album Wings Over America reissued by Universal Music Canada in a variety of formats. We highlight the limited edition, multi-disc box set that is absolutely gorgeous. If you like what you see, you can order the box set here, or grab the 2 cd remastered original album here. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
Enjoy the pop cast!
Add It To The Collection: Canada’s greatest exports since hockey are back with their 20th studio album, Clockwork Angels, which sees the 38-year-old band delivering a new twist on the sound that can only be described as Rush. The 12 tracks on Clockwork Angels form a narrative that tells the story of a young man travelling through a dark fictional world. The album has a very big, cinematic feel to it, but even if a sci-fi/prog-rock concept album isn’t your thing, there’s enough melody and great riffing on Clockwork Angels to make this album as listenable as anything the band has ever done.
