Rearview: The Week In Review (5/24/08 - 5/30/08)

Here's a wrap up of what you might have missed this week on Backbeat Online while you were transfixed by the dustup between Radiohead and Prince over whether or not Prince has the right to cock block the release of video of his performance of Radiohead's "Creep" at Coachella...

We reviewed concerts from Swervedriver, the Photo Atlas, Dresden Dolls, Death Cab for Cutie, the Breeders and lots more.

We did a run down of the best album covers ever from Denver-based bands.

We weighed in on the attempt by some local musicians to recreate OK Computer.

We posted extended Q&As with Erykah Badu and Ahmir ?uestlove.

We got the Rap-Up on local boy Frank E's big break and more.

We helped spread the word about John Common's efforts to assemble a giant kazoo orchestra.

We got word of the shocking break between Magic Cyclops and his idol Hulk Hogan.

d. biddle got the nod for our flier of the week, and there was bonus video!

We marveled at the Photo Atlas's killer break in getting a chance to work with hardcore legend J. Robbins.

We dished a double dose of sweet Spiral Podcast action.

A slew of albums got reviewed.

Freeloaders got a taste of the Demon Funkies via an mp3 download.

Finally, we revealed a secret show by the danger lads of Machine Gun Blues in oh-so-trendy Globeville (isn't everybody playing there these days?), which you've already missed if you aren't reading this fifteen minutes or so after I finish typing it. See, it doesn't pay to put these things off... -- Cory Casciato
