NME are starting to go wild with their 808 State stories this week - check out

"808 STATE are headlining the GPERCUSSION concert, which closes MANCHESTER's COMMONWEALTH GAMES on Saturday (August 3).

Gpercussion is one of Europe’s biggest free music events, with a concert in Manchester for an audience of 40,000 people. The band will be performing old tracks along with previewing tunes from their new album 'Outpost Transmission'. Members of Elbow and Simian will join them onstage.

The new album was recorded earlier this year in Manchester and features collaborations with Elbow vocalist Guy Garvey on ‘Lemonsoul’, Simian singer Simon Lord on ‘606’ and The Reverend D.Wayne Love and Larry Love from Alabama 3 on ‘Crossword’.

'Outpost Transmission' is out on October 7. The full track listing is:

'Fat German'
'Roundbum Mary'
'Box O Cream'
A full UK tour will take place in November, details to be confirmed."

Hmmm... I hadn't noticed the tracklisting being different before posting...

Somehow I think that NME has got it wrong... Can't really see 808 calling a final track "Fat German"!!
