Return of the Radle
My story on this will be on newsstands this coming Wednesday, but since the scoop's already hit the Internet, we may as well be the first local outlet to report it. Late last night, former Weezer bassist-songwriter Matt Sharp announced on his MySpace account and on his side project's Web site, therentals.com, that his famous mid-'90s band the Rentals has officially returned, a piece of news he had only hinted at months earlier. Why should you care? Because Dallas' Sara Radle is a key part of the band as keyboardist, multi-instrumentalist and backing singer. We'll have a lot more from Radle about the new project next week, but in the meantime, those who are nostalgic for the days of MTV's 120 Minutes can check out this Pitchforkmedia interview with Sharp about the reunion. -Sam Machkovech
