Pandora has announced that it is acquiring "key assets" of Rdio for about $75 million. Currently, Rdio is in bankruptcy and the sale itself is contingent on bankruptcy trustee and court approval. After the acquisition, Rdio will cease operating as a streaming service. Pandora's Brian McAndrews stated: “[Purchasing and operating Rdio] would have been a drain for us, and [Rdio] is financially challenged. Those are the two reasons we did not acquire the business but did buy the technology IP. It will be late 2016 [before we launch a new product based on Rdio IP] but that’s all we can say at this point.”Read more

Well, now Epitaph Records and Burger Records are reissuing the '90s classic. So, Punknews' John Gentile spoke to band founder Monty Messex about the LP, his history and the band's future.Read more
