I did indeed storm into the editor's office at my publication and insist that he stopped the presses of the music section. He duly scrapped the 500,000 copies printed so far in order to incorporate the fabulous news of ... oh, I've forgotten what it was already.

Subject: STOP THE MUSIC PRESS! GEORGE DEMURE - NEWS - SINGLE/GLASTO/REMIXES - OUT 30TH JUNE - AUGUST DAY RECORDINGS
GEORGE DEMURE NEWS... (aka husband of designer Laura Lees)
Charismatic Scottish crooner George Demure is back with the?latest single?from his successful debut album "Boomtown Medallion", which was released late last year to critical acclaim...
George Demure - 'Sorrow' - the new single out Monday June 30th on August Day Recordings.
This quirky electronic gem is a cover of the Bowie classic 'Sorrow' which was produced by George with a helping hand from Aidan Love of Maps and Goldfrapp notoriety. Remix duty comes from the great Dave Ball, with his ?Nitewrecker? remix. As one half of Soft Cell, Dave Ball was one of those producers who laid down the blueprints for an entire category of synthesizer based music. Dave's mix completes the circle and adds a melancholic but up-tempo take on the George original. To round things off George couldn't resist including the live favourite 'Underwear'. Get 'em off, and quick.
i-DJ - 'Boderline DELETED'
NME - 'George Demure is DELETED!"
Time Out ' - 'He's a DELETED!"

If Only I Could Remember Your Name
When you have to explain (in brackets) who someone is by use of their partner's name (who you've also never heard of) then you're really in trouble, aren't you? And, as an aside. do you think i-DJ actually printed 'Boderline...', or do you think that's just a badly copied take on 'Borderline'? Bearing all these things in mind, maybe it's not the time to use that most hoary of cliches, STOP THE PRESSES! Or as this reader from a nice building in East London has it:
