It's getting to that time of year again and if there's one thing to signify it in the UK, it's the recent tradition of the annual John Lewis Christmas Advert. Head to the replies to watch this year's short movie, titled Man On The Moon with a cover of Oasis' "Half The World Away" by Norwegian artist Aurora as the official song. You can also check out previous years short stories which have featured the likes of Ellie Goulding (covering Elton John), Slow Moving Millie (covering The Smiths), Gabrielle Aplin (covering Frankie Goes To Hollywood), Lilly Allen (covering Keane) and Tom Odell (covering John Lennon).

Graham Isador, writing for Noisey, on friendship and jealousy when your pal finds success in the music industry.
"...I have watched my friend Frank Turner go from playing bars, to clubs, to arenas. He performed at the 2012 Olympic Ceremonies and has appeared on numerous late night talk shows...But Iíd be lying to you if I said I wasnít jealous of him. I know that being jealous of my friend kind of makes me an asshole, but itís true.

It's apparently illegal to rip your CDs in the UK again.
In the wake of a challenge from the music industry, the UK's High Court has overturned regulation that allowed format shifting (such as ripping CDs and DVDs) for the sake of personal use. Supposedly, the government was in the wrong when it didn't implement compensation for copyright holders when you dumped those albums and movies on to your hard drive. Officials could reintroduce exceptions, but they'd have to take a different tack if they want these measures to survive.

The UK's venerable rock magazine NME announced that it will be offering its magazine as a free weekly edition starting in September. NME has seen its readership decline year after year, so this should at the very least grab some old fans back into the magazine fray.
The new free magazine launches on September 18 in the UK. As I type this, some of the NME team are locked away in a dark basement in NME Towers working on even more ideas to make sure itís not only a brilliant magazine, but that it gives you everything you asked us for. Iím confident that it will.

The artist that designed the Sex Pistols' album artwork isn't happy Virgin are using it for credit cards.
Virgin have the rights to artwork as it was Sir Richard Bransonís record label that The Sex Pistols were signed to and released their only studio album on before their split.
