Scotch Snap: our weekly look from Scotland at the world of music

Haven't you ever wanted to smell just like Madonna? No? Oh. Well now you can.

We learn all about the Motorhead baby's search for his father and check how high up the crazy scale Courtney Love is this week (clue, very).

Releases reviewed: LMFAO - Sorry For Party Rocking (out now); Newton Faulkner - Write It On Your Skin (out now); Keane - Silenced By The Night (out now); Death Grips - The Fever (from the album The Money Store - out 23rd April); The Magnetic North - Bay of Skaill (from the album Orkney: Symphony of the Magnetic North, released 7th May)

*Musical note: the Scotch Snap technically consists of a stressed (ie on the beat) sixteenth note, or semiquaver, followed by a dotted eighth note or quaver. Usually dotted rythms have the longer note first; it is reversing that that makes the snap so distinctive.  It is the key rhythmic signature of the Strathspey.

*If your wishes are very, very modest.
