THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

... with THE BANGLES! Their last No. 1 single, "Eternal Flame," was dropping off the charts about 20 years ago, which put me in the mood to watch them bust out "Hero Takes A Fall"  and Kimberley Rew's "Goin' Down To Liverpool" for Dave in 1984. It was that sort of rawk (and the hotness of Susanna Hoffs) that got Prince to give them "Manic Monday," their first mainstream hit, from the A Different Light album, which included Jules Shear's "If She Knew What She Wants," Alex Chilton's "September Gurls," and -- inevitably -- Liam Sternberg's "Walk Like An Egyptian."  Nevertheless, their fondness for the genres of the mid-60s was still evident in their take on Simon & Garfunkel's "Hazy Shade of Winter" for the Less Than Zero soundtrack, and the psych-garage-pop of "In Your Room" on the Everything album.  The draw from that period is a constant I saw them in a club, on a big stage and in a club again -- the last time was at a House of Blues, where they covered the We Five's "You Were On My Mind."  However, I'll confess that I put off featuring the band for about a month, until the Susanna Hoffs solo cover of Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love" popped back up on the Tube after an absence. That woman knows how to shake her tambourine.

RAPHAEL SAADIQ stopped by The Current for a chat and mini-set streaming via MPR.

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN: Captain's Dead is streaming a gig from February 1975.

HEARTLESS BAST^RDS: Erika Wennerstrom takes Black Book's Pop Quiz.

THE SHINS: What next, now that their contract with Sub Pop has run out?

NENA: "99 Luftbalons." This should be funny to all, doubly funny to some at the moment.

DOVES talk to Drowned in Sound about their new album, the best curry house in Manchester, and more.  Videos at the link, too.

DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS talks to The A.V. Club about albums set in the past and present, and more...

PETER BJORN & JOHN: John Eriksson talks to New York magazine about hit songs, playing with Kanye, and the possibility that the new P B & John album will be recorded on a crocodile farm.

WILCO: Filmmaker Brendan Canty talks to Creative Loafing about his upcoming documentary on the band.

CUTOUT BIN: From Duane Eddy to Ciccone Youth, from vinatge U2 to new Bob Mould, from The Sweet to the Vaselines, from Nico to Styx, plus James Brown, Wilco, Art Brut, The Clash, Rush and more  -- this Friday's fortuitous finds are streaming from the Pate page at the ol' HM.

NOW SHOWING:  This weekend's wide releases are Monsters vs. Aliens, which is currently scoring 73 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; The Haunting in Connecticut, currently scoring 20 percent; and 12 Rounds, which was not screened for critics.

GWYNETH PALTROW to design her own fashion line. Inevitable.

ADVENTURELAND: The red-band trailer is very red-band, ie.e., NSFW.

100 MOVIES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.

NBC's weekly primetime average viewership fell below 6 million average viewers for the week, a dramatically low number approaching the level of Spanish language Univision in every demo category. Except in the adults 18-34 demo, where NBC finished behind Univision.

NICOLAS CAGE: Worst Movie Star Alive?

WOODY ALLEN has a story in the New Yorker that is like The Metamorphosis meets Annie Hall.

ISLAMBERG, a private Muslim community in the woods of the western Catskills, was founded in 1980 by Sheikh Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, whom the Feds say  also co-founded Jamaat al-Fuqra, a terrorist organization believed responsible for dozens of bombings and murders across the US and abroad.

THE STANS: The Taliban's widening campaign in southern Afghanistan is made possible in part by direct support from operatives in Pakistan's military intelligence agency, despite Pakistani government promises to sever ties to militant groups fighting in Afghanistan, according to American government officials.  The Times of London surveys the Taliban-controlled Swat region of Pakistan.  After years of often testy cooperation with NATO and resentment over unequal burden-sharing, the US is taking unabashed ownership of the Afghan war.

IRAQ: A US withdrawal by 2011 will be a "massive and expensive effort" that is likely to increase rather than lower Iraq-related spending during the withdrawal and for several years after its completion.  The report also highlights lingering weaknesses in the Iraqi gov't.

APOCOLYPSE MEOW is the SFW ttile for this Japanimated tale of Cats and Bunnies at war.

BIZARRE SOUTH AMERICAN ARMORED FISH discovered in a calm Leicestershire canal.

TOAD DAY OUT: It's all very cute, right up to the mass extermination in the freezers.
