Bloc Party Frontman Goes Solo

     Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke announced that he will be releasing a solo album entitled The Boxer on June 26.  Kele, who wisely decided to drop his last name as a solo artist, said, "The key for the sound of the record was to take things as harsh and as physical as I could make it. The reason for going there was that these are the sounds that make me the happiest in the world."

     The album will be produced by XXXChange who is known for the work he did with alternative rap and electro rock in his rap group Spank Rock.  The lead single is called "Tenderoni", and even though that sounds lame, it will probably be tremendous.

     Bloc Party landed two entries apiece on 17 Track's End of the Decade lists.  On the album countdown, Silent Alarm was ranked No. 4 and Intimacy No. 14.  On the song tally, "Banquet" ranked No. 9 and "Like Eating Glass" No. 56.
