I Lapsus Linguae and Indafusion The Attic, Dyer’s Close, 71 Cowgate, 225 8382. 7.30pm. £4. Unjustly accused of being ‘Cure-like’ in this very publication, we retract all accusations after hearing tracks they recorded for an as yet unreleased album/EP. Imagine if Shellac recruited Tori Amos to bang out a few tunes on the old joanna for them and they got all confused and emotional in the process. If there is any justice in the world these people should be running the country, not just ruling the airwaves.

So who is Jill Scott? Apart from being party to one of the strangest and most secretive PR campaigns this side of Macy Gray, she is a stunnin ly talented singer. Part Gil Scott Heron, part Chaka Khan and a lot of Bi ly Holliday, her debut album positively shivers with the best influences of
hop and the blues. Signed to US basketball hero Michael Jordan's
new la el, her CV reads like a who's who of modern R818 with collaborations with Jazzy Jeff, Erykah Badu, Common and Will Smith. Her debut single ’Gettin’ In The Way’ was released on 23 Oct and she
plays the Liquid Room on Sun 12 Nov.
