I saw the Strokes in October as a main act.  I was really looking forward to seeing them since I've been a fan since their LP came out.  They were very good live, but their act was short.  It was around 40 mins, completly unacceptable for a main act.  Not even an encore.

I'm a sucker for the "The _____" bands

The Strokes
The Hives
The Vines
The White Stripes
The Moldy Peaches
The (International) Noise Conspiracy

The Strokes dropped Nigel Godrich as the producer of their new album. I am NOT happy about this.

the new Rolling Stone says that their new album will come out on OCTOBER 21ST.  it will be preceded by a month of club dates, and followed by a regular tuesday night spot on conan o brien during the month of november. :)

"We joke that everyone said the last record sounded like the late Seventies", says the Strokes Albert Hammond Jr., "and this one they're going to say is the early Eighties."

From nme.com:

THE STROKES have revealed details about their eagerly awaited new album - describing it as 'more mellow' but with elements of MICHAEL JACKSON's 'BILLIE JEAN'.

Out of the 11 tracks set to make the final cut, working titles include 'Under Control', 'Nightmare', 'Supernova', 'Raga', 'Ze Newie', and 'Meet Me In The Bathroom'.

Drummer Fabrizio Moretti said: "We spent a lot of time looking for specific sounds."

Speaking about 'Nightmare', guitarist Albert Hammond Jr added: "That's probably one of my favourite drum sounds right there... It's kind of 'Billie Jean'-ish. We spent all this time to make it sound like a drum machine, but Fab still plays it."

According to singer Julian Casablancas, Nick Valensi "blew up two guitar amps getting that sound" for the solo in 'Supernova'.

The band's "first more mellow song", 'Under Control', was recorded live - annoying neighbours: "The neighbours on the seventh floor complained about the noise," said Hammond Jr. "It was four in the morning, and we had to pull the plug. And that was the take where we felt like we had it. But it was all right because we came in the next day and got it."

The Strokes also spoke about the aborted sessions with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. Hammond Jr insisted: "We got along really, really well".

He told Rolling Stone: "But we just had different ways of working. We'll spend days getting the right drum sound. We don't want to hear 'We'll fix it in the mix'".

As previously reported on NME.COM, The Strokes performed three new songs at Japan's Summer Sonic Festival in Osaka and Tokyo over the weekend (August 2-3). It was the band's first live show since winter 2002.

The new album is due for release on October 20.
At wave level, everything exists as a contradiction. Everything is existing in more than one stage/place at any given moment. Everything must move/vibrate and constantly change to exist. Everything, including buildings, mountains, oceans and thoughts.

that quote is such bullshit.  nme always blows everything out of proportion and that quote is so out of context.  the strokes described ONE SONG as their most mellow, and talked about the drum sound on ONE SONG sounding like the drums on billie jean.  not a full album of mellow michael jackson influenced songs.  sheesh.

This new record will make or break The Strokes. Either they're going to be one of the best bands of this decade or they're not. October 21 will tell all. It's my most anticipated album of the year. Very exciting.

Well regardless, I think Is This It is a pretty good album and shouldn't be overlooked by the success/failure of the next
