Arts and Entertainment Prince is sueing fans who post links to recordings of his live performances online

The singer is targeting 22 individuals for 'massive infringement' of his work

My Fantasy Band: Mikel Jollett, Airborne Toxic Event

Vocals - Joe Strummer
Not because he had the best voice or anything, but there's something kind of unhinged and totally rock'n'roll about him. He had fire in his belly. You want a riot to break out in the audience or something, otherwise it's just folk music with a back beat.

Album: Neil Young, Fork in the Road (Reprise)

For the past few years, Neil Young's hobby has been what's known as the Lincvolt project, converting his treasured 1959 Lincoln Continental to run on eco-fuels, the vehicle then being driven across the USA. Now, as is often the way with this most prolific and spontaneous of rockers, he's made a record about the experience – a single-issue album which, Neil being Neil, gets sidetracked occasionally into rants about whatever drifts across his radar. Both the title track and "Cough Up the Bucks" find him firing off weak salvoes at bankers and politicians, which reveal him to be no Robert Peston. Unfortunately, he's no scientific genius either, which renders the string of eco-car songs little more than bland automotive boogies, the sound of Fork in the Road being largely unvarnished blues-rock of undistinguished quality, ragged but nowhere near as glorious as he can deliver. "Johnny Magic" is a tribute to Jonathan Goodwin, his boffin partner in the Lincvolt business, while the funk-rock strutter "Fuel Line" is a lazy would-be eco-anthem too drab and clumsy to be adopted as a clarion call. "Just Singing a Song" touches on the nub of the problem with this album, Neil clearly believing his hands-on action is the way forward, and that "just singing a song won't change the world". Well, not this song. But isn't that what he does?

N.E.R.D, Corn Exchange, Edinburgh

It would be a whole lot easier to approve of US funk-rock entourage N.E.R.D if their lead singer and musical guiding light Pharrell Williams wasn't clearly in the midst of such a passionate love affair with himself.

Album: The Zutons, You Can Do Anything (Deltasonic)

Like its predecessor Tired of Hanging Around, The Zutons' difficult third album features another cast of flaky characters culled from the seedier corners of David McCabe's imagination, though the inevitable attrition means that none has quite the anthemic appeal of "Valerie". The closest they come here are "Always Right Behind You", an exercise in lolloping Seventies boogie-pop, and "Dirty Rat", an adulterer's mea culpa set to the first cousin of a Kaiser Chiefs melody; but neither quite repays one's curiosity in full.

Album: Guillemots, Red (Polydor)

For this follow-up, Guillemots adopt a more direct approach than on the overly sensitive Through the Windowpane. In place of the lavish orchestrations that bookended their debut, Red starts with the synthetic fanfare that opens "Kriss Kross", a lumbering funk-rock groove imploring one to "dance with your thunder and lightning".
