MCGEE STUNG

In a bid to prove something or other, Q magazine pulled together a band full of people who couldn't play their instruments, got them a MySpace site and waited to see what would happen.

Alan McGee offered them a gig at his clubnight.

We're not entirely sure this is quite the scoop they think, though. Certainly, in the early days of Creation (and, come to that, the mid-period) not playing instruments was never the highest barrier to entry.

"By accessing the pages of bands like Babyshambles and the Subways, Hope Against Hope were able to get in contact with influential people like Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe and after three weeks, they had attracted admirers from as far away as Los Angeles."

So they added themselves to various bands' friends lists, then?

They could equally have got into contact with influential people like Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe by emailing him through his Radio One website...
