... are greatly improving the look and sound of our lockdown Tuesday
Harry Styles marks World Health Day by making this very snazzy tee which has Stay Home. Stay Safe. Protect Each Other on the front and This T-Shirt Fights Covid-19: Treat People With Kindness on the back available for pre-order.
“In times like these, it is more important than ever to remember the power of people," Harry reflects. "If you are able to help, please donate where you can. 100% of the profits of this t-shirt will go towards fighting COVID-19. Stay home, self-isolate, and protect each other. TPWK.”
Before the Photo-Shop Police start pounding on the door, it is we know a mock-up but highly desirable - like Mr. Styles - regardless.
The Weeknd has just premiered the video for 'Until I Bleed' and, wow, it's another stunner from the boy Tesfaye.
This being a Tuesday we'll be spending some quality time with Josh Ritter who's performing his latest Silo Session a little after midnight. Which technically makes it Wednesday but, hey, let's not be splitting hairs. As in previous weeks, there's a theme...
"Hey everyone!" messages our favourite Idahoan. "Feeling cooped up? Let's go on a night picnic. For today's show, bring your picnic blanket and picnic goodies, push the couch out of the way and come along! The show will be free, but you can always add a little to the tip jar to help Children of Promise NYC."
Having done a bang up job of covering 'Ghost Town' last week, Limrockers Fox Jaw have worked their Covid Covers magic on Kenny Rogers' 'Just Dropped In'.
We're indebted to Tom Dunne for introducing us to '70s/'80s space rockers Zolar X. While the reasons for Zory Zenith, Ygarr Ygarrist and Raidia Visual-X (possibly not their real names) never achieving commercial liftoff are self-evident, no one can question their youthful chutzpah.
Another doff of the Hot Press headphones to the Blue Light Smugglers for sharing this fab bit of Fab Four-y, which we know is going to keep us amused/annoyed for hours.

Mere moments after us tweeting yer man from Trivium's 'I See A Tiger' cover, Everyone Dies In Utah (they're from Texas, obviously) hit us up with their equally muscular version of 'Here Kitty Kitty' and this must-have black metal Joe Exotic t-shirt.

We say this every time but Modren Moore really has outdone himself with this Google Hangout hook-up with young Eddie Sheeran.
Break a leg to Laoisa Sexton who's performing Elizabeth Moynihan's An Unmade Bed tonight at 9.15pm as part of the excellent Covid-19 The Fight Back 2020 Festival. Admission is a very reasonable fiver.
And finally, here's a breakneck run through of Richard Pryor's genius career to make sure your Tuesday night mood is comprehensively lightened.
