Did you watch the NME Awards t'other night? I did. I saw Jarvis Cocker and The Gossip's Beth Ditto destroy Heaven 17's 'Temptation'. "Awful" was pretty much my verdict. Predictably enough someone disagreed...
Cocker (pictured) and Ditto are to release the song properly, and will record it in the next few weeks. Says a source:
"Jarvis thought the NME performance was the ideal place to unveil the collaboration as he knew it was going to be out on TV, thus getting maximum exposure. They are scheduled to record the song in the next couple of weeks and with luck, touring commitments won't get in the way and it'll be on sale very soon."
That's not our source. We're quoting from elsewhere. All of our sources are deep underground following that pie and mash disaster. Seriously, chicken and steak in the same pie? It's NOT right.
