James Ford, Klaxons, and Simian Mobile Disco (new album for end of '08!) News!

Simian Mobile Disco debuting their live show at Studio B last July

You can read the whole article here on BBC Newsbeat, but here are the main points:

Regarding James Ford producing Klaxons' second record:

He told Newsbeat: "I think they're still trying to push forward so I don't think it's going to sound too much like the last record." ...

Ford said: "They're trying to keep it melodic and vocal because that's one of their great strong points.

"It's going to be really exciting."

Regarding the Last Shadow Puppets:

Ford produced The Last Shadow Puppets' self-titled debut album and played the drums during their sets at the Reading and Leeds Festivals this weekend. You might remember that James was the drummer for Simian.

Regarding a new Simian Mobile Disco album:
Ford also revealed his own band, SMD, are working on getting an album out towards the end of the year.

He said: "We've already done a track with Gruff Rhys from the Super Furry Animals, which is great, and one with Beth Ditto from The Gossip.

"It's looking good so far."

And...James is getting married next month! Congratulations on all accounts!
