Now that Blink-182 are independent artists after leaving their former label, Interscope, the trio is promising an EP of new material by Christmas. Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge tweeted the news yesterday. "We're releasing some new blink-182 songs in a few weeks. Watch this space," wrote Hoppus. "New Blink EP for x mas . . . :)," added DeLonge. Hoppus recently told Los Angeles radio station KROQ that the band will "ideally" release a followup to last year's Neighborhoods by the end of 2013. "We're going to write through the end of this year and the beginning of next year, and start recording for real with quotes around for real in February after we get back from going to Australia for the tour there," he said.

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
