An exclusive little Red Nose Day appetizer for your palette. Britain’s revered PM David Cameron has joined forces with Miranda Hart, Ruby Wax and Claudia Winkleman to be funny for money on a Comic Relief special MasterChef. He jokes “We’re still scraping the chilli off the kitchen walls! But the results were surprisingly good”. You can see them tonight on BBC1 at 7pm, in the meantime here is a taster (do you see what we did there?) from our own yummy Ray Burmiston.

Rebecca Miller shoots British musician KindnessKindness by Rebecca MillerRebecca Miller shoots British musician Kindness

Rebecca Miller recently shot British musician Kindness, images that we think will be popping up everywhere after his new album, Otherness, was released on the 13th of October.

The album is his second self produced record, and features good friends and fellow musicians Blood Orange, Robyn, Kelela, Tawiah, and Ghanaian rapper M.anifest.  Drowned In Sound said “everything is played to perfection throughout the album, the vocal performances uniformly excellent, the mix about as professional and clear as it gets, the gentle jazz feel perfectly and faithfully recreated”.

An interview for Noisey, Vice Magazine’s music title, featuring Rebecca’s images can be seen on their website.

Otherness is available for purchase here.

Ray Burmiston recently photographed rock music legend Billy Idol for his interview with Event Magazine.  Idol spoke to the magazine about his recent performances, upcoming album, and the difficulty of writing an autobiography.

‘I had to look at myself dispassionately at times and confront addiction and my various demons. I really thought I was indestructible. When punk rock proclaimed, “There is no future”, I took that pretty seriously.’

The new album, Kings and Queens of the Underground, is set for release on the 20th of October.  Idol’s memoir, Dancing With Myself  is available here.
