News popped up this week that the Foo Fighters decided to fight back against Christian ideology protesters who accused their music of promoting sex, cheating and worshipping of false idols. Grohl and his musical companions decided it would be a good idea to dress themselves up as rednecks and sing the hill billy song ‘Keep It Clean’ to all of their lovable protestors! In an effort to liven things up, it did nothing but bemuse the Christians who couldn’t quite fathom what was going on!
Meanwhile back at home, the very talented Coldplay have finally announced their three winter tour dates which are in honour of their upcoming album entitled ‘Mylo Xyloto’, which is set to be released on the 24th October.

Tickets will be available from the 23rd of September but you better move fast because this tour is bound to sell out!

Speaking of recording studios, Bloc Party vocalist and solo artist Kele Okereke is showing signs of concern about his position in the band. The thoughts were provoked when he caught sight of floppy haired guitarist Russell Lissack walking towards a rehearsal studio in New York. Upon following Russell he found Gordon Moakes and Matt Tong lingering around in preparation to write some new material. This obviously didn’t go down too well with Kele who is now afraid of being fired from the band!
