Thanks to Sugaroo! Music, you’ll be able to hear the Stereotypes’ 2002 song “Redhead” in Universal Pictures’ A Dog’s Journey when it opens in theaters this weekend. “I recorded ‘Redhead’ 17 years ago at Earthling with John Finkbiner and William Skoff in one evening,” recalls guitarist and Earthling Studios operator Mike Kamoo. “I distinctly remember playing Dylan Martinez’s [Static Halo, Rookie Card] guitar for this track. Out of 18-plus releases, it’s the only recording that uses a Les Paul.”
A new version of “Redhead” remastered by Paul Abbott at ZenMastering is now available online. It’s their first Hollywood film placement, though their music has previously been heard in TV shows such as Kyle XY, Suits, and the Knight Rider revival, as well as ads for Coleman camping gear, E-Harmony, and Orville Redenbacher popcorn.

Occasional Blink 182 member Tom DeLonge has relaunched his sci-fi rock band Angels & Airwaves with their first new song in three years, “Rebel Girl,” said to be from an upcoming album and feature film project. “‘Rebel Girl’ is a space-age love song that combines my enduring obsession for new wave, pop punk, and anthemic rock and roll music,” says DeLonge. “As some of you might’ve heard, I recently took a brief minute to start up an aerospace company, so you never know: I may play this song from a satellite deep in space, beamed toward everyone’s house viciously on repeat.” Recently signed to Rise Records, home of Mayday Parade and ISSUES, A&A’s music will no longer be released through DeLonge’s To the Stars Academy of Arts & Science. Their first live dates in seven years include a two-night stand at downtown’s House of Blues on October 5 and 6.

Glory, the 60s-70s hard rock band with members of Iron Butterfly (drummer Jack Pinney), the Beat Farmers (guitarist Jerry Raney), and Bratz (guitarist Jack Butler), will reunite with all three players at Winstons on November 3. According to Raney, “We may be able to get Mike Millsap to come and sing a couple. It’s hard to get him out. He was our lead singer in the early days. I’m hoping to have Preacher Patterson on bongos and percussion.”
Millsap’s appearance at a 2010 Glory reunion was his first performance in around 20 years. Glory gigged at venues such as Starlight Bowl in Balboa Park, opened locally for Steely Dan and ZZ Top, and were reportedly the first local band to play both the Belly Up and San Diego Stadium. Rhythm guitarist Mike Berneathy passed away last October.
