At The Drive-In To Release New Album
Post-hardcore cult heroes At the Drive-In have announced the release of their first album in 17 years on May 5, 2017. “In-Ter a-Li-a” will be the band’s first release since the acclaimed “Relationship of Command” came out in 2000. The band reunited in 2012 for a handful of shows, and again in 2016 for a major world tour, which was cut short when singer Cedric Bixler began having problems with his voice. The new album was produced by guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez. The band has released two singles from the album, “Governed by Contagions”, and “Incurably Innocent.”

Legendary r&b drummer Clyde Stubblefield passed away last week at the age of 73. He was suffering from bladder cancer, and cause of death was kidney failure. Stubblefield made his name backing James Brown, and played on many of the legendary James Brown hits, including “Cold Sweat”, “I Got the Feelin’”, “Mother Popcorn”, and “Say it Loud- I’m Black and I’m Proud.” Stubblefield is the drummer who played the James Brown track “Funky Drummer”, whose eight-bar drum break is the most sampled piece of music in all hip-hop. The website WhoSampled.com lists 1,364 songs that have used the drummer’s pattern. Stubblefield got the nickname "Funky Drummer" after the song was released. In the wake of Prince’s death last year, it was discovered that Prince paid off Stubblefield’s large medical bills on the condition that it not be reported.

Stand Up Comedy Documentary
CNN has a new 8-part documentary devoted to the art of stand-up comedy. “The History of Comedy” debuts in February, with different episodes devoted to the many aspects of the genre. Not all fun and games, one episode is devoted to the darker side of comedy, and the toll it takes on the performers. It will look at depression, suicide, and drug use, which has in one way or another claimed the lives of many young comedians, including John Belushi, Chris Farley, Robin Williams and Richard Jeni. Other episodes in the series focus on such topics as groundbreaking performers, women in comedy, and profanity onstage.

76ers Trade Nerlens Noel To Dallas
The Philadelphia 76ers are trading Nerlens Noel to the Dallas Mavericks in return for center Andrew Bogut, guard Justin Anderson and a conditional protected first-round pick. Noel is a restricted free agent this summer. The 6-11” center has recently complained about playing time, with Philadelphia having a log-jam of available players at center. Tendinitis and inflammation in the knee has also been an issue with Noel. He’s averaging 10.5 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per game in two seasons with Philly. Justin Anderson is averaging 5.1 points and 2.7 rebounds over two seasons. It is thought that Philadelphia will either try to move Bogut or negotiate a contract buyout.

Wizards Strengthen Bench With Trade
The Washington Wizards acquired swingman Bojan Bogdanovic and forward Chris McCullough from the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Marcus Thornton, Andrew Nicholson, and a lottery-protected first round 2017 pick. Bogdanovic is a proven scorer who will add stability to the team coming off the bench, and allow the team to be more versatile with their lineup. He’s shooting 37 percent from 3-point range and averaging 14.2 points per game. Bogdanovic is a free agent after this season but the Wizards will be able to make him a qualifying offer to keep him. The Wizards move two players who were out of the rotation and rid themselves of the terrible Nicholson contract, that was paying him an average of $6.5 million a year through the 2019-20 season. The Nets taking the contract is the price of getting the first-round pick, which with the season the Wizards are having, will be somewhere in the low-to-mid- twenties overall. The Wizards may not have valued the pick as highly as the Nets since the Wizards have a terrible history of drafting players if they aren’t in the top 5. Strengthening the Wizards bench with the trade allows the Wizards starting five a little more breathing room, as they have been carrying the full load the entire season. The Nets plan to waive Marcus Thornton, acquired in the trade.

Soccer Goalie Resigns After Meat Pie Incident
Wayne Shaw, the 322-pound backup goalie for Sutton United, a soccer team in England, resigned this week after an investigation was launched concerning him eating a meat pie during a match against Arsenal. Shaw found out from friends that the Gambling house Sun Bets had laid odds on the goalie eating a meat pie during the match. Not without a sense of humor, Shaw, known as “The Roly-Poly Goalie” due to his weight, pulled out a meat and potato pie late in the game after the team had used up all its substitutions, ensuring that he would not be called on to play. He proceeded to eat the meat pie as a joke. However, there were serious concerns by the league, and an investigation was launched to see if there was collusion involved, as the bet paid out at 8-1 odds. The well-loved Shaw sadly offered up his resignation which was accepted by the team and league.
