The most revealing part of Ginny Dougary's extended profile of David Cameron from Saturday's Times is worth interrogation. Cameron is obsessed to the point of neurosis about his media image, and was concerned that the start of this ought not to make the final cut. That's a good reason for reproducing it.

"Hurt" – a song on Nine Inch Nails' 1994 release The Downward Spiral – came to the attention of the country legend Johnny Cash in 2002, through a mutual friend, the producer Rick Rubin. Cash listened to Trent Reznor's song more than 100 times, hailing it as "the best anti-drug song I ever heard", before recording it for the Rubin-produced American IV: The Man Comes Around. Reznor was unsure at first that a Cash cover would be a good thing. "I listened to it, and it seemed incredibly strange and wrong to me to hear that voice with my song," he said.

"Thanks to all the familiar faces," was how Sergeant singer Nick Mercer signed off from this show, "and a few new ones, as well." The quartet are from Glenrothes in Fife, less than an hour's drive north of Edinburgh, so this Edge festival gig fell somewhere between a big deal and a local show.

This interrogation is not a pleasant sight. We see a lone teenager put under pressure by a skilled questioner who shows apparent concern for his well-being, mixed with bellicose entreaties that he should be honest and go back on his story, a crude but often effective approach. The interrogator has built a relationship of sorts with his captive. He is playing to the suspect's self-esteem as someone who is too good at heart to tell a lie unless he avoids the other person's eye. The deliberate analogy is with a parent who confronts a mischievous child and says: "Look me in the eye and tell me the truth and all will be forgiven."
