All Tomorrow's Parties continues to make the impossible happen, first getting My Bloody Valentine to come together and now, the Jesus Lizard. The Chicago noise rockers will reunite after a decade-long absence for next year's ATP: The Fans Strike Back festival in England on May 8-10. The concert, featuring all of the band's original members, comes ten years and two months after the band's last gig together in Umea, Sweden on March 27, 1999. The Fans Strike Back lineup will also include Devo, Spiritualized, a reunited Sleep and the Young Marble Giants' performing their entire Colossal Youth. ATP made some more news by announcing that next year's New York festival, to be held September 11-13, will include Animal Collective, Panda Bear and Deerhunter side project Atlas Sound.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
