Probably 2006's most unlikely collaborators are to play four shows in the UK in January.
Isobel Campbell, ultra-delicate and formerly of the most twee outfit since Fountains of Wayne stopped writing about aliens for Christmas (that's Belle and Sebastian, by the way), will pair up with big bad wolf Mark Lanegan, he of Queens of the Stone Age and Screaming Trees. It will be the first time that the Mercury-nominated Ballad of the Broken Seas collaborators will share a stage.
Taking into account MySpace's annoying habit of randomly displaying different dates depending on what country it thinks you're in - nice one, Murdoch - the dates are probably thus:
21 Glasgow ABC (with Kathryn Williams)
23 London Shepherd's Bush Empire
24 Brighton Komedia
25 Bristol St. George's (with William Elliott Whitmore)
The London show has been moved from the Scala. All original tickets remain valid.
