Belle and Sebastian are pulling together a charity album - they did think about doing it for a group that encourages shut-ins to overcome their problems, but then they realised that would wipe out most of their target audience, so instead it's going to raise cash for kid's charities.

Amongst those taking part are Snow Patrol, chipping in with a cover of Ricky Wilde's I Am An Astronaut.

Yes, this Ricky Wilde:

The brother of Kim, son of Marty. As you can see, his attempts at spinning cash from music weren't very successful and he had to sell his shoes before having more luck as a songwriter.
