Music: The White Stripes

The White Stripes have announced the title of their new album: "Icky Thump". Fans of British comedy will recognise that (actually, "Ecky Thump"*) from an episode of "The Goodies - an episode which caused a man to die laughing. (His widow wrote a nice letter to the Goodies, thanking them for making her husband's final 25 minutes so happy. Which is one way of looking at it.

* The press release from the band adds: "The Stripes stress they are spelling it wrong intentionally just for "kicks" and "metaphors", and to avoid a possible lawsuit from the estate of Billy Eckstine."
