Linda McCartney: A Life in Photographs

Rock 'n' roll photography doesn't get much more intimate than Linda McCartney's Life in Photographs, a collection of subtle portraits from the 60s to the 90s that blends candid moments from music's good, bad, and beautiful with a warm family album-style record of the McCart-ney clan.

Caught in the Net: Panda Bear's pitch perfect

As a member of Animal Collective, Noah Lennox, better known as Panda Bear, had a big 2009. But he's not using that as an excuse to take a load off, it seems; he has already returned to his solo work this year. A follow up to his incredible 2007 LP 'Person Pitch!' is expected soon and in an interview with pedestrian.tv (tinyurl.com/yl3pr7d) he described the new music as "a lot darker and it sounds sort of dramatic or romantic to me." Recently on a brief European tour he played large swathes of new material. One blogger recorded his entire set from a show in Berlin – download it at ramin-ton.net. The quality of the recording isn't great but it might give an idea of what to expect – to me it sounds less busy than 'Person Pitch'; slower and sparse, and, as he suggested, more downbeat. There are a lot of nice sounds in there, though, so my expectations remain high. Another fan recorded 10 minutes of Panda Bear's gig in Belgium and put it on YouTube (tinyurl.com/ yab4qve) – the sound quality is a little cleaner. I particularly like his guitar playing after the six-minute mark.

She was the Sixties pin-up whose beauty bewitched Mick Jagger and inspired some of the Rolling Stones' most famous songs, but Marianne Faithfull has revealed that she hates the way she looks, can't bear to see photographs of herself and is still dealing with the damaging effects of being catapulted to fame at a young age.

Art Capital Group

In our article, “Annie get your lawyer: Leibovitz sued over $24m loan” (1 August 2009) we quoted an anonymous source who said that Art Capital Group were ‘pretty scary guys, they are predatory lenders’. The article also included a statement from Annie Leibovitz’s publicist that the lawsuit brought by Art Capital Group is part of its continued harassment and attention-getting efforts. We accept that the allegations are false and apologise to Art Capital Group.'

Caught in the Net: Sidewalk stays sidelined

With the Blur reunion up and running to rapturous acclaim, it would be perhaps appropriate if their US counterparts Pavement (left) – often cited as a major influence on Blur's post-Britpop reinvention – were to make a comeback too. The band split after their 1999 album, 'Terror Twilight', which was good but showed signs they were running out of steam. Since then, there have been rumours that they might reform – most recently, the band's guitarist Scott Kannberg sent out some smoke signals in January. But don't hold your breath; frontman Stephen Malkmus has struck out on his own, while bassist Mark Ibold has hooked up with Sonic Youth. Prior to that, Kannberg had his own band, Preston School of Industry, but now, at least, he's become somewhat nostalgic by reverting to his Pavement-era stage name, Spiral Stairs. Under the moniker, he will release a new album, 'The Real Feel', in October. The first taste of it is "Maltese Terrier", a jangly, jaunty slab of guitar alt-rock, complete with Sixties harmonies, banjo plucking and tinkling piano lines. Listen to it at tinyurl.com/lnjq2r.
