Siouxsie Sioux a new album

Siouxsie Sioux will release a new album through a brand-new Universal Music imprint next year.

The Banshees and Creatures singer announced she'll head into the studio to record her first album for Universal's W14 imprint later this year. The singer, who last turned up on 2003's self-released Creatures effort, Hai, has yet to reveal the scope of her recording plans.

"'I am really excited about making new music," she said in a statement. "I have various collaborators in mind and am itching to get back in the studio."

Rock Star Supernova have new name?

The punk band Supernova officially triumphed over the CBS reality-series rock act.

The punk band, had been operating under the Supernova moniker since the late '80s, won an initial injunction against the super-group using the name on CBS' Rock Star:
A judge issued an injunction against the producers of the CBS reality show using the Supernova moniker for its super-group.

The decision sided with the Costa Mesa, Calif. punk act Supernova, who alleged trademark infringement after the reality series launched a made-for-television band -- staffed by Gilby Clarke, Tommy Leeand Jason Newstead -- ripped off the outfit's name. Although the original Supernova didn't file trademark registration on the name, the judge agreed that its touring history and body of work -- which includes four albums -- was enough to assert a common-law claim on the name.

The series' band's future is up in the air until bond is set to ensure the injunction doesn't inflict financial damages on its producers if it's later overturned.

Whatever the super-band ends up calling itself, its series finale tonight (Sept. 14) names the winning singer who will go on to record an album with the rock veterans.

The reality-series act announced it will issue albums under the less succinct name Rock Star Supernova to avoid trademark infringement.

Morrissey and Download Charts

Morrissey is not happy about the British new pop-chart rules that weigh downloads as well as physical sales.

In a piece written for the Morrissey fan site, the Pope of Mope found beef with the pop charts in Great Britain keeping up with technology, mostly because once downloads get factored in, his singles don't do so well in the charts.

"'The Youngest Was the Most Loved' which was No. 3 in physical sales, yet not even in the Top Ten once downloads had been counted," Morrissey complained. "No doubt these absurd new chart rules will change soon, and it's worth remembering that they were introduced on the week that 'You Have Killed Me' entered at No. 3, so you can't blame me for thinking that someone is out to dislodge me."
