All the news that's fit to sing

Track 1 - Bush was right!

The right was right! Interviews at MySpace

Check out The Right Brothers - They've even added a special collection just for liberals - the Liberal Bonfire Kit - complete with 11 CDs and an autographed photo to use as a firestarter.

And while we're going video happy here, here's the trailer for Clerks 2. My hopes aren't high but my paws are crossed. Clerks remains the funniest film script in history.

And going completely off topic Do not press this link!

After Bob Dylan's Subterranean Homsick Blues, the first and best pop video, and the Electric Six's immortal portrayal of 'Gay Bay' as performed by a family of Abraham Lincolns or a stunt squadron of Flying Viking Kittens, this is Laika the Space Dogs favourite music video - ignore the brief advert, like we do all the others.

Track 2 - Gangof4ever!

Now, i've been accused of being a little down on communism.

Fair enough.

You try being stuck in a tin can for 50 years (50 years!) with no walkies.

But, just for the sake of political impartiality, if there's if there's one good thing dialectical materialism ever produced it's this.

The best band in the world


Break out the cheap wine

They're back (again!)

Bloc Party? Franz Ferdinand? Fuck off.

History's not made by great men

But this is.

Return the Gift

Die Hot Chilli Peppers

Edge, hang your head in shame

Like I said when they blasted me up here -

This heaven gives me migraine.

Track 3 - Love with tear us apart

When routine bites hard
And ambitions are low.
And resentment rides high
But emotions won't grow.
And we're changing our ways
Taking different roads.

Then love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

Though they released just two albums, Joy Division influenced almost every British band for two decades.

Recorded two months before Ian Curtis hanged himself and released a month after his death, this driving, doom laden love song defined a mournful generation.

No-one's been able to cover this iconic dance of death -

Why is the bedroom so cold
Turned away on your side?
Is my timing that flawed
Every feeling run so dry?
Yet there's still this appeal
that we've kept through our lives.

Then love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

- until now. Well, 2004 anyway.

Ian Curtis' epitaph becomes -

Girly french new wave bossa nova!

In a very cute, ingenue kind of way, tres joli!

Do you cry out in your sleep,
All my failings expose?
Gets a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold.
Why is it something so good
Just can't function no more?

And Love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again...
