HAVE YOU HEARD THE MUFFLER MEN?: There's not been much music-garage mechanic crossover; something we put down to the twin blows of the 'you can't fit better than a KwikFit fitter' jingle and Matthew Marsden's short-lived pop career after he left Kevin Webster's side as Corrie's greasemonkey. But this Slashdot poster reckons that the music industry might have a lot to learn from car workers. In effect, the argument is that the industry has screwed itself by fixating on the high return Big Names, rather than trying to make a little from a wide number of acts, which makes a lot of sense.
