John Frusciante unofficial – Invisible Movement

Manimal Vinyl announce their Bowie tribute – JF’s in it, too. And it’s for children!

Legendary British rockers Duran Duran have gone ahead and told the world they're a part of the Manimal Vinyl tribute to David Bowie. And it's not only them, there's a line-up of mostly Manimal's own artists, as well as some surprises. The album is expected to be out in May 2010, and tracks "will start leaking around 15th February" (nice dose of humour). Amongst the other songs on this album, as Invisible Movement found out earlier, thanks to how nice they are over there at Manimal, there will be Swahili Blonde's cover of Red Money, where John can be heard both as one of the guitars and the backing vocal towards the end of the song.

Now, all of you should get this album once it's out - 100% of the net profits will go to War Child UK - a branch of an international charity for children affected by war. I assume most of you have never been in a war - and you shouldn't, because it's an experience that completely changes your life and the way you look at things (amongst all the horrible things that may happen to you during the war). So, this will be a wonderful and enjoyable way for everyone to give a piece of your hearts to those in need - even though it's the piece of your heart that resides in, well, your wallet. A friend of this website is an employee of War Child Canada and they can always elaborate on how important this is.

Here's the complete track listing for this album. A reasonable amount of you might recognise some other artists you like. The angel-voiced first lady of France is there, too. And there are multiple covers of single songs as well and two are unknown at this point.

    Iva, please check out the recent post on http://www.musicradar.com which says Josh's confirmed himself being the new Pepper...

    • Iva

      This website does not cover Red Hot Chili Peppers anymore unless John's mentioned for a good reason...and by leaving an off-topic on something related to an actual thing he IS participating in, you're sort of belittling his work...:x

    If you don't appreciate what she does, you don't have to be here.

    • Roy

      I mean I appreciate what she does, this website is kickass, but everytime someone doesn't see something or says something that theyre not informed about she jumps down their throat and says they did this or that wrong. Its just not really professional and not the most welcoming enviroment.. you know? I mean if your an administrator of a website you should be kinder to your followers. I know people can be stupid about stuff, but that doesnt mean you have to treat them like dirt...

  • shalhevet

    thanx for the news! by the way the song before swahilli blonde is the israeli singer keren ann!

    • Stephen

      No she's not she's Johns girlfriend Nicole Turley! x

  • CMD313

    She said BEFORE, so I think she meant the one preceeding the SB song in the tracklisting. 😉

    On a totally unrelated note, we held the 1988 summer Olympics and now it's snowing. Love your country and stuff!!!!

    (I just wanted to point out how pointless it is to be excited about everyone from the same country as you - if everyone was thinking that way, this website would probably be, if I'm not wrong about the administrator being Serb, about Nikola Tesla.)
