    Kim Fowley gives you the thumbs up: cool. Kim Fowley slides his other hand up your thigh: priceless.

    Not only does her MySpace page open with a crazed R&B track from one of our all-time Crypt Records Back from the Grave-style faves -- the gospel-singing prizefighter Dave "Bunker Hill" Walker's "Girl Can't Dance," with an uncredited Link Wray on guitar -- (sidebar: BUNKER HILL HAS A MYSPACE PAGE?!), but GORILLA GOT ME host Sara J's also got the Hollywood Brats album in her profile.

    Wah-wah-wunh.

    That terrible grunting and groaning you heard last week was the sound of everyone and their mother jumping on the Lady Sovereign bandwagon, and why not? Grime's been kinda dull since the Roll Deep album flopped, Run the Road 2 is a dud, and here comes white teen supermidget, ink not yet dry on her Def Jam deal, to save the continent.

    1. Ex-Belle & Sebastian cutie Isobel Campbell teams up with polar opposite Mark Lanegan for a duets album of sea chanteys and ballads. At first listen, not quite as in tune as you'd like: he's a little too haggard, and she's a little too scared. Stream the whole record here, or just our one-spin faves:

    LISTEN: Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan, "Honey Child What Can I Do" (stream)

    Top 5 greatest lines in R. Kelly's "Out of the Closet":

    1.
    Then I said
    Imma pee on you
    Drip, drip, drip
    Oh, and that's all I could say was Oh
    She said, I can't take no more
    She screams!

    2.
    Now I'm in this darkest jail
    Then a voice yells, Good mornin' darlin
    Shit, think, shit, think
    Then a man comes out and kisses me

    This post has a facetious title, but when two Times op-ed writers use the same idea to support opposing arguments in the span of two weeks, we need guidance and we need it fast. OTD has been mulling this one over for a while, and the trigger went unfingered because it seemed like a moot point, and because we didn't really have a point to make, just a question to ask.

    Dagha and Edan

    That dude Edan has been shouting out Dagha's solo material for a minute, and before that the Humble Magnificent was a vocal supporter of D's old supergroup Electric -- a/k/a Electric Company -- even shouting them out in a Phoenix top-5 list about a year ago. Dagha -- Dwayne Simmons to his moms -- has a long resume in groups that get no respect from douchebag indie-rap kids, but some of those limpdicks know him anyway thanks to his verse on "Rock and Roll," that stand-out, lysergic-guitar-blasting psychedelic smash on Edan's recent Beauty and the Beat

    At left, Chris Brokaw

    "Rock musician Chris Brokaw" -- in NPR-ese -- got the "Here and Now" treatment over at WBUR on the occasion of his solo-with-band album Incredible Love. (Those of you who've been wondering when that Codeine/Rodan/early Karate sound was gonna make a comeback, serve yourself.) If you've got eight minutes, take a listen:

    When last we checked in with Bobby Sullivan -- a/k/a Sullee -- Hingham's great white hope was a teenage Celtics fan with roots in the hardscrabble South End of yore, a five-minute stint (at five years old!) as a Maurice Starr protege on his resume, and big dreams of stardom.

    Could an Irish kid who lives with his folks in a oceanfront house in the tony Boston 'burbs really make it as a hip-hop heavy? There were doubts.

    No idea who these kids are, but they're doing it real big, like Grandma's House big. Let's have a vote. The best part of the following email is (a) the "144 cans" of Crunk Juice; (b) "T.F.D.S. (Truly Fucking Doing Something)"; the Mexican restaurant called "No Problemo"; (d) dudes raffling off Thanksgiving dinner with their families.
