GET YOUR HANDS ON MY NEW WOMAN: Can you imagine what it would sound like if The Darkness had recorded Get Your Hands Off My Woman with Roy Thomas Baker, the chap who produced Bohemian Rhapsody, sat behind the mixing desk? We bet you can't, and if you say you can, you're lying.

The good news is, though, that rather than having to screw up your face in a fit of concentration trying to imagine such a union, you can instead get your dirty little harddrives whirring to just such a collaboration, as from Monday, for a month, that's what's going to be available on thedarknessrocks.com for ninety-nine pence. (It's in Windows Media 9, but nothing's perfect). If you download the track in the first seven days, you get entered in a draw for free tickets to a London warm-up for the forthcoming tour. It's a song, it's a unique collaboration, it's a lottery. Surely only a chocolate carapace shy of a Kinder egg?
