BETH TURNS DOWN TRIP TO SOMERSET

There's bad news for Beth Orton fans, as she's decided she won't be able to make her July 5th date at Somerset House in London - recording the new album is taking longer than originally planned, apparently. We're not entirely clear why that means she couldn't take one night off to run through a few songs, but we're sure there are all sorts of matters we can't begin to grasp.

Meanwhile, a bunch of extra tickets have been made available for the other gigs in the series, which run as follows:
May 6 Doves

7 Queens Of The Stone Age

8 Super Furry Animals

9 The Mars Volta

10 Sigur Ros

11 Bright Eyes plus The Faint

12 Bloc Party plus The Kills & The Cribs

13 Los Lobos / Orishas

Meanwhile, it seems a Beth Orton compilation came out last year, which we're not entirely sure we heard of at the time; and maddeningly, they didn't call it 'The Best Bit', which is what we would have done: instead, they went with Pass In Time. Does that mean we're cheesier than record company marketeers?
