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.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
