News Roundup: Thurston Moore, Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse, Apples in Stereo

Moore pumps up the XXX volume, Allen suffers miscarriage, Winehouse to hit Jamaica, and Apples prep B-sides collection.

The funky, synth bouncing wah wahs often set as the background music to porn films must have struck one of Thurston Moore’s nerves; the Sonic Youth principal has written the soundtrack to photographer/filmmaker Richard Kern’s flick Extra Action (And Extra Hardcore),which will feature “unpretentious, unadorned, and definitely undressed””real women” rolling around and doing “something interesting for a fewminutes.” Hmm… something interesting, huh? The DVD comes out March 18. Um, enjoy! [Via Pitchfork]

Sadly, roughly one month after the announcement that she was pregnant, Lily Allen has suffered a miscarriage, Reuters reports. The 22-year-old singer was expecting her first child with the Chemical BrothersEd Simons; our condolences, Ms. Allen. [Via thedailyswarm.com]

Like the Rolling Stones and No Doubt before her, it appears Amy Winehouse will head to Jamaica for a little inspiration, and to record the follow up to breakout LP Back to Black. What’s more is that Winehouse will stay in the former home of Bob Marley and record in the reggae star’s studio alongside his son, Damien Marley. I’m the sure the sessions will be, um, aromatic.
