Well, the 2010 Eels Performing Live tour is in full swing, and now that Tomorrow Morning has been released the setlists are changing from how they were at the beginning of the tour. Read the rest of this entry »

NME reports:

E from Eels was questioned by police in London’s Hyde Park after they mistook him for a suspected terrorist. The singer, real name Mark Oliver Everett was taking a break from a day of interviews when police approached him thinking he fitted the description of a suspicious person they were looking for. After being let go once they realised he was innocent, the frontman said: “Not every guy with short hair and a long beard is a terrorist. Some of us just want to rock.”

Ha ha ha. Well, Hombre Lobo wasn’t the best, but that doesn’t make E a terrorist.

Zip over to the official website for the track listing and cover of Tomorrow Morning (along with more information on the upcoming tour and such). Looks pretty nice. Or if you can’t wait…

01. In Gratitude for This Magnificent Day
02. I’m a Hummingbird
03. The Morning
04. Baby Loves Me
05. Spectacular Girl
06. What I Have to Offer
07. This is Where It Gets Good

09. Oh So Lovely
10. The Man
11. Looking Up
12. That’s Not Her Way

14. Mystery of Life

A live version of “What I Have to Offer” can be heard on the January 17, 2008 bootleg from E’s Things the Grandchildren Should Know release party at St. James’s Church in London. It’s pleasant, and it bodes well for the rest of the album.

Tourdates are available on the official website. The Eels are spanning the globe yet again, from Australia to Japan, across the US and all over Europe, so be sure to check out the dozens of dates. (And perhaps ask someone out on such a date?)

As it happens, I’ll be attending the September 26 show at Washington, DC’s 9:30 Club, which happens to be the day before my birthday. So certainly Obama will show up.

Tomorrow Morning will be a new 14-track album released in August 2010, a couple of weeks after the Eels kick off their next world tour. Yay!

Stay tuned for further updates.

Update: Today (Yesterday’s Tomorrow)

The Eels word of the day is morning. Or do they mean mourning?

Visiting the Eels official website gets you the image above. We’re thinking they’ll announce a full tour schedule tomorrow (May 19), though it could just as easily be, say, a new album called Tomorrow. Huh? Kinda looks like an ad for feminine hygiene products–optimistic ones.

Okay, maybe it’s not the smallest cameo ever. It’s not even the most clever (that would be Hitchcock’s award). Still, check out this bulletin board from the American sci-fi drama FlashForward. Notice anybody’s BL&OR promotional photo? He’s even got his pa right next to him.

As rockingeels.com points out, creators of the show are Eels fans and of course predicate a good deal of their show’s premise on the work of E’s dad, quantum mechanic Hugh Everett III. It’s a good show, all things said, but what a strange place for E to pop up!

Rocking Eels has rebounded from the prohibition of its live contents with a very nicely updated Eels biography (featuring new photos, including one from E’s high school yearbook–yikes).
