BEONLINEB …. neon bible … 06 OCT 07

3 Oct

I didn’t think this week could get any more exciting, but I’m going to RIBA on Saturday and Arcade Fire are doing something very special, very mysterious, very odd on Saturday. They’re not just playing their final NA date at Randall’s Island in NY, but there’s been an extra link up on www.arcadefire.com, a “bee” (hence the b) which directs you to http://www.beonlineb.com and a picture of an eye. An eye which many on UKK seem to think is Win’s, but i doubt that.

 

So what might it be? Latest rumours are that it’s a DVD/Film release, which the additional release of B-Sides and rarities – either available online or as some sort of physical release. The film rumours have been swirling for months…well DVD rumours have been going for years, pretty much since a San Francisco gig was taped, later shown on MTV Two. Tracey Maurice has directed a Black Mirror video, which was supposed to have been shown on Channel 4 (UK) this Monday, but it was dropped with a few days to go….However this October 6th event is apparently not a video release…which I would have loved to have seen.

 

Other rumours include LCD Soundsystem remixes of Neon Bible. We were aware that James Murphy’s been working on a Black Mirror remix, but perhaps that’s not the only song he’s been remixing – and this seems a likely possibility given the “remixing” of http://www.neonbible.com into http://www.beonlineb.com . If not all LCD remixes, then perhaps a remix album featuring other guests…although would have thought we’d have heard about it by now. Could it be to do with footage from Judson Memorial Church in NYC, or footage from St John’s Westiminster and Brixton (which was used in a little seen advert for Neon Bible in about June, with No Cars Go footage, on sky TV in the UK)…. maybe i’m getting carried away.

 

A UKKer found another beonlineb page, http://www.beonlineb.com/click_around.html, which has a source code stating an “Neon Bible interactive video”….hmmm..AAHAHH!!!

 

seems like excitement stuff to come this weekend!!!!!
