In 2002, John Osborne won a competition on John Peel's Radio 1 show. The prize was a box of records from the DJ's shed, including such gems as Oizone – a punk Boyzone covers band – and Atom and his Package's "Pumping Iron for Enya".

Of all the implements you wouldn't expect to see Steve Mason – ex of The Beta Band and his own side projects, King Biscuit Time and Black Affair – to be wafting around in Kings Cross's dingy Scala, it's a light-up, see-through plastic tambourine. The kind of thing you might buy outside Manchester's Nynex Arena while queuing for a Boyzone gig... in 1995. It looks silly, but seems to fit in with a newfound lightness of soul in the Fife singer. One that was evident – albeit in parts – on his majestic 2010 LP, Boys Outside.

You couldn't make it up. First, it was compulsory sex education for teenagers. Now, five-year-olds are going to be taught it's wrong to beat women. Alan Johnson and Harriet Harman think they know better than parents; is nothing too sacred to stop meddling Labour ministers interfering? Whatever happened to the innocence of little children? I'm paraphrasing, but that's the right-wing reaction to one of the key elements of the Government's strategy to stop violence against girls and women. In reality, five-year-olds aren't going to be taught about domestic violence, although the Government believes they should be taught bullying is wrong. But let's not let facts stand in the way of a story.
