Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s final mixtape, Osirus, will be released Jan. 4 via JC Records, a label formed by his mother and his manager. The effort was apparently recorded over the six months prior to his death, and includes production credits from DJ Premier and Cappadonna.
In March, famous post-rockers Slint will be heading out on a 15-date reunion tour, including not one, but two dates in Chicago, March 25 at The Metro and March 26 at Park West. Of the original members, David Pajo, Brit Walford and Brian McMahan are the only three confirmed for the tour.

What the hell? Moment of the week
Irrationally angry former lead singer of Black Flag Henry Rollins will be getting his very own movie review program. Henry’s Film Corner will air the first Saturday of every month on the Independent Film Channel, where Rollins will review current movies, discuss favorites, interview people involved with film and most likely “rant” quite a bit. You know it’ll work because the first sign of any good film critic is big fucking calves.
