Max Reebo Pick of the Week: “I Don’t Know”

February 18, 2019 at 7:18 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Kicking off something new for the site, “Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week” where we will be highlighting songs to check out and we hope you enjoy. To start things out, we’re recommending “I Don’t Know” by The Sheepdogs.

The Sheepdogs are a Canadian band with a nice 60’s rock sound. “I Don’t Know” is off their 2010 album Leave & Burn. It’s a great tune and there’s more where that came from. Other good ones to check out are “Feeling Good”, “The Way It Is”, “Got A Hole” and “Nobody.” They’re formed by Ewan Currie on vocals and guitar, Ryan Gullen on bass, Sam Corbett on drums, Jimmy Bowskill on guitar, and Shamus Currie on trombone, keyboards, and tambourine. Fun fact: they’re the first unsigned band to make the cover of The Rolling Stone.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • StarWars.com has an excerpt from Claudia Gray’s upcoming novel Master and Apprentice.
  • IGN announced a new book The Art of Star Wars Rebels. Interestingly enough, it’s a Dark Horse/Lucasfilm project which will include commentary from Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg and Carrie Beck and will be written by Dan Wallace, which sounds like a solid plan for success. It’ll be out this October and pre-orders are already available.

Comic News

  • Fans have been wondering if there’s any chance of them going back to Legends to tell more stories. Well, Marvel is taking the plunge, though they’re going old school and doing a Marvel Star Wars #108 one-shot that continues the old Marvel Star Wars comics line, be it only with one issue. Hopefully this trend will continue and one day we’ll get some new Legends novels with the old characters we fell in love with and got invested in. Plus more Celebration guests have been announced.
