Sweeping The Nation

With the release of their new album just a couple of weeks away, The Sweptaways have unleashed another single on an unsuspecting world. It's a cover of girly-haired ex-boxing G.I. Terence Trent D'Arby's 1988 hit Sign Your Name, it features guest vocals from someone called Nina Ramsby and the mp3 can be downloaded absolutely gratis here. Coo!

Mildly Interesting Pop Fact: Terence Trent D'Arby changed his name to Sananda Maitreya in 2001, following a series of dreams. He proclaimed in an interview that "Terence Trent D'Arby was dead...he watched his suffering as he died a noble death... After intense pain I meditated for a new spirit, a new will, a new identity."

Terence Trent D'Arby, there. What a pretentious wazzock.

Mmm .. Kips - you been on the 'use-by 31 Mar' roll-mop herrings again?

Maybe Terence has been to the same school of bonkers as Prince and David Icke?
