“Brown Sugar” called, and it wants its old riff back. Actually, the most remarkable thing about “Doom and Gloom” -- the first new Rolling Stones in six years, released this morning – is how un-sugary it sounds. After Keith’s opening guitar grind, Mick goes on to riff heavily on war, poor kids, rich executives, etc., all topics befitting the title. The track was produced by longtime Stones cohort Don Was, and thus has a similar (dated?) sonic palate as the band’s last few records. It’s one of two new tracks that will be featured on a new greatest-hits package, “GRRR!,” due out Nov. 13 for those 28 music buyers around the world who don't already own a Stones hits album.

What do you think of the song? Do you think the boys should make a whole new album with Was, or was his time up long ago?

Of local note for Twin Cities Glimmer Twin fans, the Parkway Theater in south Minneapolis will host the Stones Fest next weekend, featuring the first local screening of the new 1965-era documentary, "Charlie Is My Darling," on Oct. 19. Other Stones movies scheduled through the weekend include the recent "Exile"-chronicling doc "Stones in Exile," 1968's "Sympathy for the Devil" and various concert films from throughout the years, including the rare "Muddy Waters and the Rolling Stones (Live From the Checkerboard Lounge)."
