Kate Moss and the Kills’ Jamie Hince apparently had a lovers’ spat that was so awful, Moss decided to pitch some of Hince’s belongings into a nearby pool… including a laptop that contained the only recordings of six new Kills songs. Finally, a case of a girlfriend actually destroying her paramour’s band’s musical output, instead of the trumped-up tales that you hear from so many nooks and crannies of the rock-lore world.

  1. I really miss rock-star behavior like this and am glad that someone is delivering it. But please, Kate, don’t sing.

  2. The last line of that Mirror article is terrible/incredible.

  3. @ScrabbleChamp: There’s so many innacuracies in that article. Like how Hince “the lead singer of the Kills”. I didn’t even know his name until a few months ago. To me The Kills (and The Dead Weather, actually too) are all VV.

  4. This is on Jaime. You date a headcase, YOU MUST BACK UP YOUR WORK.

  5. Whenever I happen to encounter the Mirror’s 3am column I prefer to read it as slightly deranged fanfiction.

  6. What’s an airing cupboard? And, actually, what’s a fishwife?

  7. @bcapirigi: I was totally puzzled by fishwife too. Wikipedia sez: A fishwife or fish fag is a woman who sells fish. Such women were notoriously loud and foul-mouthed as in the proverb, “To swear like a fishwife.” One reason for their outspokenness is that their wares were highly perishable and so lost value if not sold quickly. In modern Britain it is an insult to call someone a fishwife.

    As my grandma always says, you learn something new everyday!
