SNAP OF THE DAY: FOUND
With their second album just out, Edinburgh quintet Found are continuing to rack up fans with their delightfully oddball music. Part folk miserablist and arrhythmic glitches, but with a vocalist that pines with the same desperation as Ben Ottewell of Gomez, they're the probable by-product of Brian Eno producing the aforementioned blues rockers. Sonically tight, bleepy, lo-fi noise, it's brilliantly unpredictable pop music that's consistently changing direction, choosing its path by seemingly arbitrary decision-making and succeeding with aplomb. That they're also the proud team behind the 'Etiquette' art installation at last year's Fringe Festival - a project that allowed visitors to create music through "tactile and simple' investigation with a table-top synthesiser that's in the same vein as the Reactable (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0h-RhyopUmc) - is testament to their persistently experimental outlook. To take a listen, hit the link below.

--------------------------------------------------

FOXY BROWN RELEASED FROM JAIL
As expected, US rapper Foxy Brown was last week released from prison just under nine months into her 12 month sentence for parole violation. She was released from the Rose Singer Center For Women at Rikers Island in New York on Friday, where she was greeted by her mother Judith Marchand, lawyer Charles Barron, hundreds of reporters and fans, and her entourage, including a hair stylist, makeup artist and her managers, who arrived in a fleet of luxury vehicles. You know, the usual.

As much previously reported, Foxy Brown was sent to jail for visiting Florida without permission while on parole for hitting a neighbour in the face with a Blackberry. During her time in the slammer, the rapper was regularly in the news for various misdemeanours, which landed her in solitary confinement. More recently, her lawyers attempted to get her released even earlier, due to an ear infection.

The high profile release is just perfectly timed given the planned 13 May release of Brown's new album 'Brooklyn's Don Diva', if only every rock star or hip hopper could schedule their prison time so perfectly around their release schedules.

--------------------------------------------------

DOHERTY MOVED TO SEGREGATED AREA
More from the pop jails, and more on Doherty. Last week, you may recall, Pete's manager was telling the press to leave his client alone but, according to Sky News on Friday, it was his fellow inmates who really needed that message. The Babyshambles frontman was moved to a segregated area of Wormwood Scrubs prison after it was discovered that some other prisoners were planning to attack him.

A 'source' told Sky News: "Pete is in the segregation unit for his own safety, and partly because he asked for the move himself".

As if that wasn't bad enough, The Sun reports that his friends have been selling his belongings while he's locked up. A 'source' said: "Pete's mates, people he really trusts, have been flogging his stuff to get some cash, including some of the paintings he did using his blood. The chap selling those, one of his closest friends, was begging for no one to tell him. The next day he was back with something else".

--------------------------------------------------

WINEHOUSE AND FIELDER CIVIL SPLIT?
And another pop jail related story. And more speculation regarding the future of Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder Civil as a couple, what with him being banged up and all that. And it's not just those pesky source-types speculating either; Amy's dad is less than optimistic about the relationship. Speculation began after the singer failed to visit her husband at Pentonville Prison on Thursday. Subsequently, a 'friend' told The Sun, "Amy does everything she can not to visit. She forgets she is married half the time. There are a few men she is close to and Blake can't stand it". Asked for his thoughts on the matter, Amy's dad Mitch simply said: "It wouldn't surprise me if Amy and Blake had broken up".

--------------------------------------------------

SPEARS ORDERED TO PAY LEGAL COSTS
Britney Spears and her family have been ordered to pay all of their outstanding legal debts. Court Commissioner Reva Goetz has ruled that Britney's father James Spears must make the payments in his role as conservator of the singer's welfare and estate. This means that lawyers representing the star, and for some reason, her brother Bryan, are set to receive their dues, an amount totalling around $400,000.

It follows the previously reported order by another commissioner, Scott Gordon, who ruled that Britney Spears must pay ex-husband Kevin Federline $375,000 in legal fees to cover their child custody case.

--------------------------------------------------

RAY CHARLES' FAMILY NOT IMPRESSED WITH MANAGER
Ray Charles' children are accusing his long-term manager, Joe Adams, of mismanaging the late R&B icon's estate, and of tarnishing his legacy by releasing two posthumous CDs which they say the singer would never have approved had he been alive.

According to the LA Times, several of Charles' twelve children have complained that Adams has too much power over Ray Charles Enterprises and the Ray Charles Foundation, and that he is unfairly excluding them from business dealings, and they are seeking a formal investigation and audit of their father's estate, trusts and foundation.

Unless there is any actual evidence of fraudulent activity on Adams' part, this dispute will seemingly centre in the main over who has the rights to manage Charles' name and image. The family say that while the will did not give those rights to them, they didn't give it to Adams either, and prior to his death the singer implied his legacy would be left to his family.

Confirming their grievances with Adams, one of Charles' sons, Robert Robinson, told reporters last week: "The biggest issue with me is disrespect for the family and kids. If you respect a man and his work, then respect his kids. His blood is flowing through our veins".

--------------------------------------------------

KID ROCK WINS IN DETROIT ALTERCATION CASE
One of Kid Rock's outstanding legal disputes was resolved in his favour last week. One Kelly Ann Kozlowski had accused the rocker of roughing her up outside his recording studio in Detroit, and was suing for $25,000 in damages. A US court considered the case for 90 minutes on Friday before dismissing it. A criminal case relating to the allegations had already been concluded without any charges being made. Rock's attorney William Horton said his client welcomed the ruling. Kozlowski's legal rep said she planned to appeal.

--------------------------------------------------

STING SUED BY CHEF
Following that run in last year with his cook, now a chef is taking legal action against Sting, though not over allegations of mistreatment while in The Police frontman's employ, but over rather strange allegations that he helped the singer write two of his most famous songs.

Roy Smith of Nevada has filed a complaint with his local police claiming he should have a cut of the royalties on the songs 'Roxanne' and 'Message In A Bottle' because, and this is a real story, honest, he once told Sting about a girlfriend he had called Roxanne and a time when he put a message to his mum in a bottle.

Smith says he told Sting these stories when they met in a restaurant in the seventies. He reckons the singer later tried to get in touch with him, but his mother didn't pass on the message because she thought it was the real police trying to track him down.

The Nevada police have, unsurprisingly, told Smith this is a civil matter. It remains to be seen if a royalty lawsuit will follow, though Sting's people seem pretty confident it wouldn't stand up in court. And I'm no expert, but I suspect they're right.

--------------------------------------------------

SEBASTIEN TELLIER BOWS TO PRESSURE OVER EUROVISION SONG
French Eurovision entrant Sebastien Tellier has said that he will sing his entry in his native tongue after all, after French politicians expressed outrage that the track included English lyrics.

In a radio interview, he said: "The baguette won't taste any worse tomorrow morning if I sing in English. I'm not going to fight it. I just want to please people". However, he did add that no one ever asked him to submit a French song. "If I had been asked to do a song expressly for Eurovision, I clearly would have done something in French. If it makes everyone happy, of course I'll make an effort [to sing in French]. I'm not dense".

As previously reported, amongst the naysayers was UMP Party MP Jacques Myrad, who said: "The French language is the tool of a huge industry in terms of cultural influence and if we French give up our language, what do you think the others will say? I think that even in a song, especially in this Euro contest, we have to sing in French".

--------------------------------------------------

NE-YO BORED WITH URBAN SOUND
R&B star Ne-Yo has been saying that he's bored of urban music and that his upcoming album 'Year Of The Gentleman' is full of new sounds. Speaking about the new LP, the singer said: "There's some stuff on there that sounds like something the Beatles might've done. There's some stuff on there that sounds like something Billy Joel might've done. I can't do just straight urban music no more, because to be completely honest with you, I'm a little bored with it. I'm just moving with what music excites me now".

--------------------------------------------------

50 CENT RESPONDS TO KEYS' GANGSTA REMARKS
50 Cent has commented on those comments made by Alicia Keys in an interview with Blender magazine, in which she said gangsta rap was the creation of the American authorities and was designed to cause tensions in the black community so they couldn't rise in power over the white community. Well, I think that's the gist of what she said - she's since said she was misrepresented by Blender though, so I haven't spent too much time digesting what she's quoted as saying.

Anyway, here's 50 Cent's response, given to The Showbuzz website: "I don't like people who don't like me. If you don't like the content that I write because of my experiences; I am being who I am when I am writing it. I fall into that 'label' as far as you considering artists creating 'gangsta music', we fall into that. If she don't like that, [well] I don't like that classical music shit she be doing. At some point she's playing some shit that don't relate to me... We listen to it and try to figure out why people actually enjoy it. I am trying to enjoy it. That statement changes my perception of Alicia Keys totally. [And] the magazine is standing behind it, which means they probably have a tape of her in conversation saying it. It's just not really a bright comment anyway".

I'm not sure I follow any of that, and I suspect Fiddy has misinterpreted even the misrepresented Keys, but whatever, consider yourself told about what he said.

--------------------------------------------------

KRS-ONE SUFFERS HAND INJURY
Rapper's rapper KRS-One, aka Kris Parker, has had his hand broken during the course of a recent performance in New Haven in Connecticut. The injury occurred when an angry gig goer, having been escorted offstage by security staff, threw a bottle at the stage, striking the hip-hopper on the face and right hand. Parker reportedly remained calm and told the crowd: "Let it go. When negativity comes your way, let it go". The hand swelled up and became painful during the course of the performance, so when the gig was over, the rapper was taken to Yale-New Haven hospital and treated for the fracture and dehydration. Parker has requested that the 'fan' not be charged over the incident.

The concert was the latest date on his tour in support of his 'Stop The Violence' movement, visiting some of the roughest neighbourhoods in the US and promoting the message of non-violence. Obviously didn't get through to the bottle-thrower. Anyway, this means some of the dates have had to be postponed until Parker recovers.

--------------------------------------------------

VELVET REVOLVER TO HOLD ONLINE AUDITIONS FOR SINGER
According to Slash, Velvet Revolver are planning to audition online for a singer to replace Scott Weiland. There are no details, just a vague notion that this is what they might do. Here's what the guitarist told Billboard: "The band is actually talking about building a website [and] doing some auditions via that, so that's been something that's developing at this point. We're at that point of just listening to different things... it's one of those kind of situations where you can't really explain it to anybody because you'll know it when you hear it. So I'm waiting to get that feeling of, 'Yeah that's it'".

The band have a gig in Las Vegas upcoming, and Slash says that a number of singers will fill in on that date: "I'm not gonna name any names", he said, "but a bunch of well-known people will get up and sing some songs, and then also bring up a couple people that we think are pretty good and might sing a couple songs".

Weiland is, of course, back with Stone Temple Pilots, who are due to tour this summer.

--------------------------------------------------

METALLICA LAUNCH NEW WEBSITE
Metallica have launched a new website to promote the release of their new album - which may or may not be called 'Mission Metallica' - due out later this year. Fans can sign up at http://www.missionmetallica.com for email updates about the album, and, or so it is implied, the chance to hear previews of the new LP during the coming months with the slogan "experience the album... before it's done".

--------------------------------------------------

MASSIVE ATTACK ALBUM CHAT
Reggae star Horace Andy has been talking about his collaborative efforts on Massive Attack's forthcoming new album. The singer, who has worked with the duo on many occasions, has recorded three tracks for the new LP.

Andy says: "They send the lyrics for me to learn, I've done three tracks. I never know what they are going to choose, I am supposed to be going up to Bristol very soon. Four years now and they haven't come with an album yet, if I was to stick around and wait on Massive, man, oh my God".

Horace will appear as part of the Massive Attack curated Meltdown festival this year, the full line up for which was published this weekend and is here...

--------------------------------------------------

AC/DC WORKING ON NEW ALBUM
AC/DC have confirmed that they are working on a new album. A posting on the band's website reveals that they have been recording the new material in Vancouver with producer Brendan O'Brien and plan to release the new LP later this year.

--------------------------------------------------

RED STRIPE FINALISTS ANNOUNCED
The Red Stripe Music Awards have announced their final four, er, finalists, who are set to play alongside Dirty Pretty Things at the event's, er, final, which will take place at Kentish Town Forum on 12 May. As previously reported, 52 showcase gigs were held across the country, featuring more than 200 bands. The four who've made it through are The Down And Outs, Kiddo, Klaus Says By The Record and O Fraccas.

The winning act, chosen by a judging panel consisting of Music Week talent editor Stuart Clarke, Coda's Oli Hodgson and The Fly's Will Kinsman will be given a slot at The Great Escape in Brighton and at the the Lovebox Weekender in London.

--------------------------------------------------

THE MIGHTY BOOSH LAUNCH FESTIVAL
Showing no fear in the face of our recent suggestion that the festival market might be becoming saturated, comedians Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt have announced that they are launching their own Mighty Boosh festival. Still, given the popularity of The Boosh, it would be fair to assume that this one will be well attended.

In a statement the comedy duo said: "We are always trying to think of new things to do. We like going to the countryside, we like bands, we like comedy, but how can we combine them all in one fun day out? How about putting on our very own Mighty Boosh Festival! How cool would that be! We're gonna get dressed up for a day in the country and drag a load of friends and comedians and bands down".

The one day event will take place on 5 Jul at The Hop Farm in Kent (the same venue and the day before the previously reported Hop Farm Festival, more on which in a monute). 10,000 tickets went on sale on Saturday, with another 10,000 released today. There are another 10,000 tickets still knocking about somewhere. No word yet on when those will be made available. I hope they haven't lost them, or something.

--------------------------------------------------

GIDDINGS STAGES MORE EVENTS ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT
The man behind the Isle Of Wight Festival - John Giddings - has announced a new music event also taking place on the Wight Isle (not to be confused with the White Isle, obviously). The new venture are two concerts at Osborne House, on 26 and 27 Jul, one headlined by Paul Weller and the other by Girls Aloud.

--------------------------------------------------

CUT COPY PLAY SECRET SHOW TONIGHT
Cut Copy have announced that they will play a secret show at Bethnal Green Working Men's Club tonight, ahead of their sold out Scala show on Wednesday. Oh wait, secret? Sorry, I mean Cut Copy aren't doing anything. Nothing at all. Ever. Honest.

The band's second album 'In Ghost Colours' is released via Modular on 12 May (unless that's a secret, too. In which case, they aren't).

--------------------------------------------------

MADONNA CONSIDERING £12.5M DUBAI GIGS
How much would you pay to see Madonna? Probably not as much as promoters in Dubai. According to The Sun, the singer will be paid £7.5 million for a show in Dubai in November, as part of her upcoming world tour to promote new album 'Hard Candy'. She is reportedly also considering an offer of £5 million to play a private party in the city.

A 'source' told The Sun: "Madonna is about to break another record by playing the most lucrative concert of her whole career - or anyone's career for that matter. The negotiations for the tour to stop in Dubai in November are being finalised and she will get £7.5 million for the one show only. The figure is so big because of her new contract with Live Nation and the huge funds available from private promoters in Dubai".

--------------------------------------------------

MORE HOP ADDITIONS
More additions to that all new Neil Young headlined Hop Farm festival in the form of Rufus Wainwright and Guillemots. It takes place on 6 Jul.

--------------------------------------------------

YOUSEF LAUNCHES CIRCUS LABEL
DJ type Yousef has announced he is launching a record label to be called Circus Recordings. Spinning off from his Circus club and events company, the first release from the new venture will be a double a-side from Yousef himself, featuring new tracks 'Letter To No One' and 'Purple Rage'. We're told that "between the two tracks they cover the current climate at Circus - forward thinking electronica and techno with house flavours and melodic hooks". They are, we're also told, a "perfect introduction to the dancefloor bombs to follow on this most exciting of new labels". So that's all lovely. I'm guessing more info on the whole thing will be posted at http://www.circusclub.co.uk once it is confirmed.

--------------------------------------------------

ITALIAN PROMOTER PLANS LONDON OFFICE
Italian concert promoter Virus Concerti has announced it will open a London office having recently arranged a number of shows for larger Italian artists in the capital.

The company's GM, Attilio Perissinott, told Billboard: "We've sort of become the point of reference for Italian acts who want to play there. And we realized there was great potential [in all that] last October when we arranged a two-day show at the Barfly in Camden which we called 'The Italian Job Live'. It was a sell-out. There's a huge Italian community in London which we can access quite easily, but a lot of British people also come along to the gigs. There's plenty of curiosity about lesser well-known Italian acts and it isn't only in the UK".

The promoter is currently looking for suitable offices in central London, most likely in Soho.

--------------------------------------------------

ROCK BAND LAUNCHES FIRST FULL ALBUM DOWNLOAD
We're all aware that one of the biggest success stories in music in the last eighteen months comes from the video game sector right? We are talking, of course, about the Guitar Hero and Rock Band franchises. Which is good news for the video game companies flogging these games (which include MTV Games in Rock Band's case) but possibly also for the record companies, given the increasing popularity of the download function where gamers can download new tracks to play along to - especially as the makers of both seem keen to develop this bit of their games. A range of rock tracks have been available for download via the PlayStation Network and X-box Marketplace, but the makers of Rock Band have just announced that this week they will make a full album available for the first time - Judas Priest's 1982 long player 'Screaming For Vengeance'. The album will cost $14.99, while each track can be bought for $1.99. Presumably people in all the labels with music of the rockier kind sitting in their catalogues are looking into the potential of all this.

--------------------------------------------------

AMAZINGTUNES LOOKING FOR NEW FOOTBALL ANTHEMS
With the FA Cup and UEFA Cup Final just around the corner, unsigned bands site amazingtunes.com is encouraging artists to upload an original football anthem dedicated to their local team of choice. The download site will showcase all soccer themed songs, and donate any money it generates from the sale of the football tracks to Sports Relief. So, there you have it. Press info on this from Get Involved.

--------------------------------------------------

ACADEMY OF CONTEMPORARY MUSIC WINS QUEEN'S AWARD
The Guildford based Academy Of Contemporary Music has won a Queen's Award For Enterprise in the innovation category, which certainly sounds impressive. The award has been presented to the music education outfit for the "continuous development of its teaching and curriculum through linking with industry. By close integration with music businesses, increasing numbers of students are helped to be creative, to drive their own commercial projects and ultimately to have successful long-term careers in the highly competitive contemporary music industry".

The Academy launched in 1995, spinning out of a guitar teaching venture set up by one Phil Brookes with the help of a Princes Trust grant. It grew into a wide-ranging music education operation, opening its own purpose built teaching facility in Guildford in 2004. It currently has 1200 full time students, and recent graduates include Newton Faulkner and Sugababe Amelle Berrabah.

Commenting on the award, Brookes told CMU: "It is an honour to receive this prestigious award on behalf of everyone at ACM, especially given the fact that the school was established with the support and aid of the Princes Trust. It is a wonderful recognition of ACM's unique contribution to the education and music industry sectors".

--------------------------------------------------

BBC CLOSES DOWNS ITS ISP
The BBC is bowing out of the internet service provider industry, perhaps so it can concentrate its efforts on fighting with the, erm, internet service provider industry over who should foot the bill for the increased bandwidth demand caused by the ever popular iPlayer.

Not really, after all it was the Beeb's commercial division BBC Worldwide that ran the Beeb.net ISP, not the BBC's own digital department. But yes, Beeb.net, one of the early ISPs offering net services, will close down later this year which, in my mind, is a news story mainly because I'd assumed it closed down years ago.

It will cease trading on 30 Jun, giving customers of its dial-up, broadband and webmail services two months to find other suppliers, though given that some reports suggest it has as little as 250 broadband customers at the moment, I don't suppose that will send too many people into a panic.

A spokeswoman for BBC Worldwide told reporters last week: "Beeb.net was launched in 1999 when accessing the internet was a new and different thing for people and it wanted to be a trusted guide. The market was very different 10 years ago. It just doesn't fit with our core value any more - there's no need to get help on the internet any more".

--------------------------------------------------

XFM ANNOUNCE NEW WEEKEND APPOINTMENTS
Xfm have announced that Rick Edwards who, I am reliably informed, is one of those T4 presenters, will join the London station to present Saturday breakfast. Adam Longworth is also returning to the Friday evening Weekender slot. Look, Xfm London PD Adam Uytman says this: "Our new daytime line-up has gone down a storm and with Rick and Adam's addition to the weekend schedule we are continuing to build on this strength. Rick is incredibly passionate about Xfm and having Adam back is like welcoming him back into the family. It feels like we are back to our best".

--------------------------------------------------

CHART UPDATE
So, Madonna has sneaked up to number one in the singles charts with her Justin Timberlake collaboration '4 Minutes', giving her a thirteenth chart topper, which, I am assured, is a record for a female solo artist. Former number one Estelle is at two with 'American Boy' while Sam Sparro is at three. New entries on the singles chart this week are few, but you have Goldfrapp at 25 with 'Happiness', Kanye West and Dwele with 'Flashing Lights' at 29 and Nelly with 'Party People' at 39.

More new entries in the albums chart though, with Kooks going straight in at the top of the chart with 'Konk'. Then it goes Mariah Carey with 'E=MC2' at 3, Elliot Minor with 'Elliot Minor' at 6, Sarah Brightman with 'Symphony' at 13, Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus with 'Best Of Both Worlds Concert' at 29, and Gabriella Cilmi with 'Lessons To Be Learned' at 35.

MCFADDEN COMPLAINS ABOUT KATONA
Brian McFadden has complained that he's gone through hell because of ex-wife Kerry Katona, alleging that she has smeared his name in the press, in part by blaming him for the premature birth of her newest child Max.

Regarding that last claim, well, according to reports, McFadden says that the former couple's two children Molly and Lilly-Sue stayed with Brian and his fiancée Delta Goodrem in Australia over Easter. Following that, McFadden's mother Mairead apparently kept the girls on for a few days before returning them to their mother, and I think it's those few days that were the problem. Presumably it would be a problem if Kerry was actually expecting them back earlier, but it's hard to tell whether Katona did know where they were or not. Anyway, Katona has subsequently told the media that she thought she might "never see her girls again" and that the worry caused baby to arrive early, rather than that being due to the fact that she was smoking and drinking or anything like that.

McFadden responds: "Kerry is a disgusting human being. She manipulates people and plays the sympathy card for every stupid mistake she makes. Me and my family have been put through hell by her stupid games. She uses my two girls as a weapon in her childish games. She is an embarrassment to me, my family and my children."

BLUNT RAP SONG A HIT IN FRANCE
A French rapper called MC Sinik has had a hit in France with a hip-hoppy version of James Blunt's 'I'll Take Everything', which is interesting. Blunt says: "Sinik's take on 'I'll Take Everything', which is called 'Je Realise', has been a big hit in France. I think this might be my direction for a third album".

ASHANTI ON VIDEO AND NELLY
Ashanti has rebuffed suggestions that her new video for 'Way That I Love You' - in which the singer is seen seeking revenge on a cheating ex - is a warning to her alleged boyfriend Nelly.

She told People.com, "It's not! I wrote that record last summer... The song is just about real life. It's for every woman who has gone through it. It's a rude awakening when you get used to being happy, but it's a part of life. I didn't kill the person!"

And the fact is, she's not admitting to anything other than friendship with the hip-hop star. "We're really, really good friends," she maintains.

DIZZEE RASCAL ON JAY-Z
What I want most on a Monday morning is further discussion of Jay-Z's headline slot at Glastonbury. So, thankfully the BBC have been on the blower to Dizzee Rascal, who says he's a big fan but wonders about Jay-Z's crossover appeal. "I don't know if Jay-Z has that cross over element," said the UK rapper. "Kanye West or Eminem, they've both got that. Jay-Z is a bit of a funny one. [But] it's amazing to me man, as a fan that's just like wow. I never saw that coming and I could never picture Jay-Z at Glastonbury, but it's all good".
