Arts and Entertainment Public Service Broadcasting's Willgoose

London’s East End makes a fitting location for a duo obsessed with 1940s heroics, as on their War Room EP, much of which they play tonight.

Amon Tobin, Hammersmith Apollo, London

Bad news: Amon Tobin's one-off set at Hammersmith Apollo was the last ever British outing for his ISAM project. This was version 2.0 of the live show, with music largely drawn from his 2011 album of the same name, and with truly ground-breaking visuals.

6ft 5in woman suing the NHS for £2m

A former drama student whose dream of becoming an actress was ruined when she grew to 6ft 5in is suing the NHS for £2m for failing to spot her growth condition.

Dizzee revamps England song to try toget Roy's boys to fix up and look sharp

With expectations of its footballers suddenly on the rise, England needs a new anthem to unite behind. Dizzee Rascal has risen to the challenge after dashing to the studio to record an "emergency" England Euro 2012 song which he plans to release today.

Album: Labrinth, Electronic Earth (Syco)

Received wisdom suggests this urban-ish popster is the first "credible" signing to Cowell's Syco label, in so much as he's emerged organically via initial success as a writer/producer.

Album: Maverick Sabre, Lonely Are the Brave (Mercury)

Soul-rapper Maverick Sabre has steadily built a devoted following, as witness the Jazz Café audience enthusiastically singing along with "They Found Him a Gun", the bonus track concluding Lonely Are the Brave.

Wiley, Eskimo Dance, Proud2, London

When informing a friend about my plans for Saturday night, he replied “If I was your father, I’d ban you from going.” Another said "Just you two girls on your own? Are you crazy?"

Album: Zomby, Nothing (4AD)

The rapid follow-up to this summer's evocative Dedication is markedly different in intent, a much lighter affair lacking the somewhat sombre, haunted mood of that valedictory album.

The Insider: How to make your hallway welcoming

I painted my dark hall white, under the – as it turns out, false – impression it would brighten it up. Now it's cold and still dark, not to mention grubby. I'm about to revamp – what do the experts suggest?

Urban music has grown up and is now going into the theatre. Matilda Egere-Cooper hails the opening of a gritty show

Ninja Tune - Two decades of mixes and mash-ups

When two London DJs released the first Coldcut single, it led to the label that gave us Roots Manuva, Mr Scruff and, now, Toddla T.

Album: Alphabeat, The Beat Is...(Polydor)

Seeing audiences responding to Alphabeat on Lady Gaga's Monster Ball tour is a thing of joy, and The Beat Is... could be the record which wins over doubters.

Album: Sun People, Nickodemus, ESL / Wonderwheel

Producer/turntablist Nickodemus brings the world to his New York studio on this follow-up to the wellreceived Endangered Species, mixing up a series of spicy pan-cultural crossovers in which East sidles up to West and gives it a playful pinch on the posterior, before both head south to shake a tail with their hedonist Latin cousins.

The Word On... Prodigy, the new album

"Fans of Australian drum & bass crew, Pendulum, will recognise familiar beats and motifs, but that's because they stole them from the Prodge. To hear where clubbing is heading, check out Diplo and Kid Cudi." - Lou Thomas, www.bbc.co.uk/ music
