This week we learned that Peter Andre is planning on writing an erotic novel for men. So many jokes, so little time.
Jennifer Lopez's boyfriend has a funny name, but that's not as funny as him fretting over buying her a wedding ring. Oh, the japes!
We'll also be calling the stars, telling Chuck D he's great, asking Misha B to namecheck cricket in her new single and playing some great Scottish stuff from Zed Penguin.
Releases shown: Kasabian - Switchblade Smiles (out now); Misha B - Homerun (out now); Public Enemy - I Shall Not be Moved (from Most of My Heroes Still Don't Appear on no Stamp - out now); King Charles and Mumford and Sons - Brightest Lights (out now); Zed Penguin - Heathens (from Red Tulip, Yellow Tulip EP, out July 28) .
*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 that reversal of expectation that makes the snap so distinctive. It is a key rhythmic signature of Scottish traditional music.
