The boys behind one of my favourite albums for 2008, Oracular Spectacular, have just announced that they will be touring Australia this December - performing headline shows in Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, with support from Luke Steele of Sleepy Jackson and Tame Impala.
Tickets to MGMT go on sale August 19 through Ticketek or Heatseeker.
December 6 - Belvoir Amphitheatre, Perth
December 9 - Enmore Theatre, Sydney
December 10 - The Tivoli, Brisbane
December 11 - The Palace, Melbourne
MGMT - Electric Feel (Justice Mix)
MGMT v Justice v Pitbull - Kids Are Your Friends (JAPATTACK! Remix)
(I think the Kids remix could do without Pitbull. Other than that, I quite like the mash of Kids and We Are Your Friends)
It has been praised by Germaine Greer as being "attention-getting but certainly not obscene", and now Beth Ditto's naked NME cover has been nominated as the best magazine cover ever published.
Magazine Week is running the competition, which will allow online users to vote for the winner.
There are 16 magazine covers nominated it total, including the Vogue Princess Diana tribute issue, and the 1997 Liam Gallagher & Patsy Kensit Vanity Fair cover.
