McGowan does his bit for Haiti

As group singalong singles go, you've got to prefer the news that Shane McGowan has put together a bellowy cover of Screamin' Jay Hawkins to raise money for Haiti:

The song is set to include Nick Cave, Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie, the Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde, the Clash's Mick Jones, the Sex Pistols' Glen Matlock, and singer Paloma Faith.

Johnny Depp is also going to be involved, playing guitar. It won't sell in anything like as many numbers as Cowell's tune, but at least there's no message.
