A Bill is about to get its third and final reading in the Commons next week which could affect many of our up and coming British rock music groups.
If the Bill is passed, then all rock bands must have a realistic name and not one just made up, to fall in line with EU trade description policy. This is in response to complaints received in Brussels and the confusion that was caused when some Italian conservationists bought a CD by the contemporary beat combo, the Arctic Monkies.
"We knew about arctic foxes and arctic hares but we had no idea that you could find monkies in the frozen wastes of the arctic circle. Imagine my dissappointment when we got it home and found that it was a load of english lads playing their loud thumpy thumpy in their bedrooms"
The Band named The Killers are due to appear in court later next week on charges of attempted murder along side Amy Winehouse, although sources say that she will probably get away with a caution as she has just opened a chain of off license and convenience mini markets.
It is rumoured that Paul Rodgers is contemplating quitting the music business altogether.
