And Finally

Muse’s Bond supremacy

You know how it is, you write a song, you stick it on your new album, then you realise it would be great as the theme song for the new James Bond film, only to discover that Adele has already done one. It’s a story as old as time.

Speaking about ‘Supremacy’, the opening track from his band’s new album ‘The 2nd Law’, Muse drummer Dom Howard told the BBC: “It’s got a little whisper to the Bond vibe – it all goes a bit crazy ‘Live And Let Die’ in the middle. My view is they should use it for the next James Bond film, but I don’t know what’s going on with that. I heard Adele was doing it!”

How did this oversight come to pass? Well, the band have clearly been putting a lot of thought into their stage show of late, which possibly distracted them from wooing Bond producers.

Speaking about their upcoming live performances, Howard said: “On stage we’re going to have this huge upside-down pyramid which can turn itself inside out. It represents the power hierarchy turned on its head. I’m going to do some kung fu and fend off some businessmen, who are losing their minds as they realise they’ve lost everyone’s money”.

Yes, really. He also added that there would be “dancing aliens”.
