SOMETHING TO LISTEN TO: Pete Doherty special

The much-vaunted meeting of two former Mecury alumunis, Pete Doherty and Mike Skinner, has resulted in a new version of Prangin' Out. You can listen to that over on the The Streets MySpace, and perhaps ponder how doing a record with Doherty fits with the Streets' original manifesto to push things forward.

Meanwhile, Pete's Mum went on Woman's Hour this week to talk about having the world's most famous drug addict as a son. She attempted to square the circle between trying to keep it a private matter, and writing a book about it as well. Listen to how well she managed that one.
