TUESDAY 24TH AUGUST
SAINT SAVIOUR
Currently fronting Groove Armada on tour, after co-writing tracks on their latest album 'Black Light', Saint Saviour, aka Becky Jones, is also a solo artist in her own right - her 2008 debut single being one of the finest covers of Joy Division's much-covered 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' you are ever likely to hear. She has a new single called 'Woman Scorned' out in October via Euphonios, and before that will play the new music night GustoGig in support of The Louis Blouin Foundation on 26 Aug. With all that upcoming, we tracked down Becky to ask the Same Six Questions.

 
Q1 How did you start out making music?
I very naively started out wanting to be a session singer and after a long musical education I made my money doing the working men's club/cabaret circuit, believe it or not, and singing in studios for other people. I joined someone else's band and they encouraged me to write my own music, gave me a keyboard, I got a copy of Logic and I was off!

Q2 What inspired your latest album?
After a few years of making upbeat, loud, pumping dance music and electro-pop, I wanted to go back to my roots when I only listened to sensitive and often melancholy souls like Gladys Knight and Carole King. My voice has a really emotional quality and I wanted to strip back the layers of noise and reveal it in a more natural way. The odd synth bass and fat kick sample manages to pop in now and again though because I just can't resist, but I no longer disguise my voice under three effect units!

Q3 What process do you go through in creating a track?
I'm sure everyone says this, but it's different every time. I wrote my last song using Ableton on my laptop on a tour bus careering through the Austrian countryside, and the one before that began with a hangover induced low mood piano playing session in my room. I take a lot of inspiration from rhythms and grooves, so I do a lot of messing about with synths on my laptop. I usually write the whole song including drums, bass and guitar parts, then hand it to some musicians to record properly for me. I record vocals at home because I like to control it myself.

Q4 Which artists influence your work?
This is the hardest question ever because I just love music in general. I guess mostly things I grew up listening to will always seep into my music in a subliminal way, so I'd definitely say Gladys and Carol as above, but I got smashed round the head by a lot of blues, rock and folk from my parents, so early Fleetwood Mac, Janis, Jimmy, Led Zep, Deep Purple, Melanie, Dylan, and then in recent years a lot of electronic artists, The Knife and Fever Ray, Röyksopp, Trentemøller, Björk etc.

Q5 What would you say to someone experiencing your music for the first time?
Listen to this!

Q6 What are your ambitions for your latest album, and for the future?
I want to play on 'Jools Holland'.

DENIS JONES
Denis Jones released his debut album, 'Humdrum Virtue', in 2007. Although often using loops created with a bank of equipment and the occasional guest musician, the focus of the songs was nonetheless Jones' distinct guitar-playing style and piercingly soulful voice, maintaining a very intimate feel, however much layering was added. Tracks like '£10 Of Electricity', 'Four Water and '17' really marked him out as someone special.

 
Three and a half years later Jones is back with album number two, 'Red + Yellow =', which is due for release in October. The songs remain in very much the same style as his debut, though this is no bad thing - he always leaves you wanting more, letting neither album stretch beyond eight tracks and ensuring the quality is kept high throughout. You can hear the album in full via Jones' website now.

GEORGE MICHAEL PLEADS GUILTY
George Michael has pleaded guilty to driving while under the influence of drugs and also to cannabis possession. The singer appeared at Highgate Magistrates Court this morning to face the charges.

As previously reported, Michael was arrested last month after he crashed his car into a branch of Snappy Snaps in Hampstead. He was formally charged on 13 Aug, following further investigations by the police (what further investigations there need to be when someone's car is embedded in a shop and they've got a pocketful of weed I'm not sure).

Of course, Michael has a string of drug driving offences to his name, having crashed into parked cars, fallen asleep at traffic lights and driven into a lorry on the A34 (though he says he was sober when that last one happened).

He was last convicted of DUI in May 2007, following that there previously mentioned nap he took while waiting for a set of traffic lights to go green. That resulted in a two year driving ban.

It's not yet clear what sentence the singer might face on this occasion, though an introduction to the concept of using taxis when high might not go amiss.

GUNS N ROSES WARNED NOT TO BE LATE
So, Guns N Roses are still planning to head to the UK this week in order to begin the second European leg of their current world tour. But that doesn't mean they will actually play the opening shows, their headline sets at the Reading and Leeds festivals. Having assured everyone that the shows are still on, festival boss Melvin Benn has now said he will still pull the plug on them if they're late.

Last time GnR headlined the twin festivals, back in 2002, the band arrived on stage two hours late in Leeds. As with all festivals, Reading and Leeds have strict curfews set by the local councils, and breaking them can incur large fines (Glastonbury headliners are charged £1000 for every minute they play past the curfew). Eight years ago, Axl and co were allowed to play on. However, that will not be the case this year.

Benn told BBC Newsbeat: "If Guns N Roses decide to take to stage as late, as they did in Leeds some years ago, then the performance just won't happen. I've had a very heavy warning from the local councils. There is a curfew - it's a very strict curfew. We got away with it once. We won't get away with it for a second time. Unfortunately, if the band chose not to take to the stage on time there's really nothing I can do. I won't be allowed to break the curfew. The truth is - it's threatening the viability of the festival. It threatens the licence. It really is quite important".

As previously reported, Axl Rose's Twitter account was apparently hacked last week, and used to publish a fake announcement that all future dates had been cancelled.

In the first mention of the fake tweet direct from the band, bassist Tommy Stinson spoke of the confusion it caused in the GnR camp, telling Ohio radio station 98.5 WNCX: "It's startling to me how stuff happens. It's stressful. You kinda think, 'OK, well, I've gotta get my life in order here because I'm leaving in five days', and then you hear something like that coming down the pike. It's Sunday night and you're like, 'How am I supposed to deal with that?' Everyone's just trying to figure out what's happening with it and how it happened and then I get the call that everything's fine, whatever - it's just some crazy shit going on".

How something for which resolution requires nothing more than the deletion of a tweet and a quick statement (or clarification tweet, perhaps) could have stirred up such confusion was a question pondered by CMU editor Andy Malt in last week's CMU Weekly, which you can read here.

JACKSON FIVE LAWSUIT DISMISSED, MURRAY TRIAL DECISION SCHEDULED
A lawsuit brought against Michael Jackson shortly before his death in 2009 has been dismissed.

As previously reported, AllGood Entertainment claimed that Jackson had breached a contract with them when he signed up for his ultimately doomed O2 residency, because he had already signed an exclusivity deal with them to perform at a televised reunion concert with the Jackson Five. AllGood sued Jackson for $40 million, and after his death sent a $300 million creditor's note to the singer's estate. However, last week a judge dismissed the claim.

The Jackson family's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, said that the case had "never had any merit and the claim was frivolous from day one. Michael Jackson never agreed to participate in a concert promoted by AllGood as the judge clearly found in his opinion".

In other Michael Jackson court news, Dr Conrad Murray, who is accused of killing the singer by providing him with a lethal dose of anaesthetic, will have a preliminary hearing in January to decide whether or not he should face a full trial for involuntary manslaughter.

Judge Michael Pastor scheduled the preliminary hearing for 4 Jan at the Los Angeles Superior Court this week. Murray was present at the brief court session, as were members of the Jackson family, including Michael's parents Joe and Katherine.

OZZY TO RETIRE AFTER ONE MORE SABBATH ALBUM?
Ozzy Osbourne has hinted that he is planning to retire from music, but wants to make one more Black Sabbath album first.

Speaking to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Osbourne said: "We're talking and that's a good sign. We're not at war with each other... I was speaking to [drummer] Bill Ward last night. I've got to speak to the other two. I'm trying to get things done right... I would love to do a killer Black Sabbath album. It would make my life, my whole thing, round up perfectly for me".

ROGER WATERS EXTENDS WARNER/CHAPPELL PUBLISHING DEAL
Roger Waters has re-signed his publishing contract with Warner/Chappell Music. The deal means the Warner Music publishing arm will continue to administer the musician's Pink Floyd rights song rights from the band's fifth studio album, 'Atom Heart Mother', to 1983's 'The Final Cut', Waters' last album with the band.

Announcing the renewed deal, Warner/Chappell UK MD Richard Manners said: "Roger is an iconic songwriter, lyricist and musician. Each generation discovers these phenomenal albums anew, and their wide-reaching influence and popularity continues to grow. We're delighted Roger entrusts these songs to Warner/Chappell on a global basis, and we're looking forward to the work ahead, especially with much-anticipated 'The Wall' dates on the horizon".

ELBOW WORKING ON CHILDISH ALBUM
Elbow frontman Guy Garvey has revealed that the band's currently-in-production fifth album sees them looking back to their youth.

Garvey told BBC 6music: "The working title of the album at the moment is 'Lippy Kids'. It's quite a nostalgic thing. I've got a thing about growing up, not needing to, but a certain period of your life when - well, kids are called 'hoodies' these days, aren't they, when they reach their teens? I remember it being an amazing, important time, so I've written a lot about that".

KANYE TO RELEASE A TRACK A WEEK
Kanye West has revealed that he plans to release a new track every Friday until Christmas. As well as his own solo work, he also plans to release music by other artists whose music he has produced.

Writing on Twitter, West told fans: "I know y'all need the music, so I'm dropping one new song every weekend until Xmas. It may be my song, it may be a new Jay-Z song etc... I'm calling it 'Good Fridays'. Y'all know every Friday y'all gonna have a new joint from our family".

Referring to a remix of his new single 'Power', featuring Beyonce and retitled 'See Me Now', which he 'leaked' last week, West added: "We look at the game completely different now. It's about the fans. No more holding back. That's why I dropped 'See Me Now'. It wasn't about me, it was about the summer, the BBQs etc".

The rapper's new album is due for release in November.

THE ALARM SPOOF BAND FILM IN PRODUCTION
Keith Allen and Phil Daniels are set to star in a new film, entitled 'Vinyl', documenting The Alarm's bid to get their 2004 single '45RPM' into the charts under the guise of a fake, younger band The Poppyfields - a group of teenagers who simply mimed to the track.

After making the top 30 with the single the band came clean (though many fans had already twigged who was really behind the song). Frontman Mike Peters explained at the time: "We thought we'd send the demo for '45RPM' to a few radio stations, but made out it was a new band so we could get some honest feedback. The reaction was so good that were blown away! However, we were sure the reaction wouldn't have been so positive if they knew it was The Alarm".

He added: "We noticed that a lot of bands suffered when they attempt comebacks because people generally don't believe they can ever be as good as they once were. We wanted to make sure that we are judged purely on the strength of the music, and not by our old hairstyles!"

The band, of course, had numerous hits in the 80s without having to pretend to be other people. Now the story of the hoax is being adapted into film form by director Sara Sugarman, which sees the band hatch the plot after meeting up at a funeral.

LIQUID LIQUID TO REPLACE BATTLES AT ATP HALLOWEEN SHOW
Following the news that Battles frontman Tyondai Braxton has left the band, part way through the recording of their new album, fellow New Yorkers Liquid Liquid have been announced as their replacement at the upcoming ATP 'Release The Bats' Halloween show at The Forum in London on 30 Oct.

As previously reported, a statement released earlier this month said: "Battles and Tyondai would like to let their fans know they have chosen to follow their own musical paths. Due to Battles' ambitions of finishing their second studio album followed by commitments to a full touring schedule in 2011, and Tyondai's own commitments as a solo artist and his desire not to tour, both Battles and Tyondai have decided to move on without each other. It is a sad but amicable split".

Also on the bill for the ATP show are Beak>, The Field, Tweak Bird, plus Walls who will play a DJ set.

ALBUM REVIEW: Maddslinky - Make A Change (Tru Thoughts)
Dave Jones was once a rare groove DJ. Then he became Zed Bias and was a garage pioneer back in the 90s. Now, under his Maddslinky moniker, he has moved into dubstep, and this is the second album under this name.

There are some interesting collaborations on this album. Mr Scruff guests on the off kilter 'Dub Is For Real', Skream helps out on '50 Shades Of Peng', and the previously reviewed single featuring lyrics from soul singer Omar also appears. Tawaih's lush vocals can be found on 'Further Away', while Jenna G sings over the rumbling bass of 'Fly'. But the stand out track for me is 'Peru', where Jones is working alone. A benchmark dubstep cut, it's simply awesome.

There are some less good tracks to counter-balance this peak - 'Hiding Place' is disjointed and 'Cognitive Behaviour' darks out a bit too far - but overall this is a great album, suitably diverse and really rather thoughtful. Tru Thoughts have signed a real winner, and the Brighton label goes from strength to strength with output like this. PV

EMI BUYS DIGITAL STORES
EMI Music has further expanded its interests in the wonderful world of music merchandising and such like by acquiring London-based online music retail company Digital Stores, perhaps best known for operating the RecordStore.co.uk website, but presumably of more interest to the music major for the third party ecommerce services it provides musicians and brands.

The company will now operate under EMI's merchandising division, joining Europe's second largest retail music and entertainment merchandise distributor LoudClothing, though will remain in its north London HQ for the time being.

No further details of the deal have yet been revealed.

ANDY KERSHAW TO RETURN TO THE BBC
Andy Kershaw will present a new show on BBC Radio 3. Entitled 'Music Planet', it will see Kershaw and co-presenter Lucy Duran travel to remote destinations around the world to record the music performed by local musicians. The show will visit the same destinations as BBC One's 'Human Planet', a new anthropological series "celebrating man's remarkable ingenuity and success as a species".

As previously reported, Kershaw was jailed for three months in January 2008 for breaching a restraining order barring him from contacting his former partner, Juliette Banner. He served 44 days of his sentence, but was then arrested again three days after his release for another breach, at which point he was given a six month suspended sentence and advised to leave his home on the Isle Of Man.

He returned to Rochdale to live with his mother, but went on the run after a further breach resulted in a warrant for his arrest being issued in September 2008. He was arrested again in December the same year after returning to the Isle Of Man and given a second six month suspended sentence. So it's probably a good idea to have a project which involves travelling a very, very long way away from the Isle of Man.

Kershaw's said of his return to radio: "I am thrilled to be back on Radio 3 working again with a team of bright, imaginative, enthusiastic people who also happen to be dear friends. Nowhere on Earth is safe again from my attentions. So far, we have, literally, hacked through mountain jungles to bring 'Music Planet' listeners extraordinary music from some of the world's most isolated locations. And I cheerily risked incineration at a rocket festival in Thailand to take our Radio 3 audience into the fiery thick of the action".

He continued: "I have been even to Switzerland, the last country in which I expected to find myself. And, if listeners thought that yodelling was valuable only as a device to evict stragglers at the end of a party, or as a sure-fire way to secure an international novelty hit in 1956, the music we recorded in the Alps will - like so much to be heard in 'Music Planet' - shatter such preconceptions and, simultaneously, delight and exhilarate".

The show's producer, James Parkin added: "What makes 'Music Planet' so exciting for me is that one minute you're listening to Cambodian hip hop, and the next Swiss yodelling recorded in the Alps. And this is the music that people are making right now, all over the world, recorded especially for Radio 3".

'Music Planet' and 'Human Planet' are due to air in the autumn.

MOJO ANNOUNCES VINYL COVERMOUNT
MOJO has announced that the first 10,000 copies of its next issue, which is due to go on sale on 31 Aug, will come with a free twelve-inch vinyl compilation entitled 'Let It Be Revisited'.

The artists featured on the freebie, including Pete Molinari, Phosphorescent, The Jim Jones Revue, Beth Orton, Amorphous Androgynous, Besnard Lakes and Dr Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson, have recorded their own versions of tracks from The Beatles' 1970 (and final) album, 'Let It Be'.

MOJO Editor In Chief Phil Alexander said of the special edition: "The MOJO Vinyl Edition is our way of celebrating the rebirth of vinyl which we've seen in recent years. Essentially, we created an incarnation of the magazine that we wanted to buy ourselves so it was something of a labour of love. In terms of the album itself, we hand-picked the acts and they all paid tribute to the enduring power of The Beatles by providing new perspectives on a set of classic tunes".

Here's the tracklist for the compilation:

John Grant - Two Of Us
Dennis Locorriere - Dig A Pony
Phosphorescent - Across The Universe
Beth Orton - I Me Mine/Dig It

Pete Molinari - For You Blue
The Jim Jones Revue - Get Back

X-FACTOR ADMITS AUTO-TUNING CONTESTANTS
After the first edition of the new series of 'X-Factor' on Saturday night, which was watched by a record 11.1 million idiots (who knew Great Britain was blessed with so many?), fans accused the show of applying Auto-tune software to some vocals, making the good sound better and the bad sound worse, something which the show seems to readily admit.

Look, here's the statement they put out: "The judges make their decisions at the auditions stage based on what they hear on the day, live in the arena. The footage and sound is then edited and dubbed into a finished programme, to deliver the most entertaining experience possible for viewers. When it gets to the live shows, it will be all live".

Interestingly, if you actually listen to the vocals that were edited on last weekend's programme, the vocal tweaks were applied so heavy-handedly (distorting, rather than tuning), and seemingly at random, that you can't help thinking someone involved in the show wanted people to notice. Either that, or they've got someone new in to do their sound editing, and s/he's incredibly rubbish.

Either way, who cares? We should probably stop talking about it nueooosow (that's "now" Auto-tuned by an X-Factor sound engineer, in case you wondered).

KYLIE PERFORMS IN SOMERSET PUB
Kylie Minogue performed at a pub in Compton Martin, Somerset at the weekend. It's sort of not as impressive as it might be, as it was a surprise performance for Parlophone staff at their annual away day to say thank you for helping to get her new album, 'Aphrodite', to number one in the UK charts. But then it is actually quite impressive, even then.

Here's some footage: youtu.be/dNu5DMYgISI
