Pop pays better 
The Magnetic Fields kicked off their sold out 3-night sojourn at The Lyric in Hammersmith on Thursday and continue on through to Saturday. The HouseOfTomorrow.com has news of forthcoming dates in the USA. The newly-revised schedule is:


24: Minneapolis, MN: Pantages Theatre
25-27: Chicago, IL: Old Town School of Folk Music (Two shows Sat and Sun)
29: St. Louis, MO: The Pageant
30: Columbus, OH: Wexner Center for the Arts


1: Detroit, MI: Theater at Second City
2: Toronto, Ontario: Trinity Saint Paul's United Church
17: Los Angeles, CA: Wilshire Ebell Theatre
19/20: San Francisco, CA: Palace of Fine Arts Theatre

The site also contains a profile of the The 6ths ("every lisper's nightmare"!) which features a revealing connection with Momus, whose 'The History of Sexual Jealousy Parts 17-24' from the Creation Records compilation Doing It For The Kids is a personal favourite.

Finally, there's an interview with the multi-talented, multi-group (Magnetic Fields, The 6ths, Future Bible Heroes, The Gothic Archies) and, apparently, slightly reticent, Stephin Merritt in The Independent online edition from back in May.
