Bill Bailey’s office in Hammersmith is, as you’d imagine, a trove of cool stuff: owl taxidermy, french horns among other curious instruments, a retro German pez machine and a couple of almost-hairless cats. I went round there earlier today for a special live takeover armed with a list of songs our Twitter and Facebook followers had suggested. From “a progressive acid jazz version of the Imperial March from Star Wars” to “a smooth lounge version of Rage Against The Name’s ‘Killing In The Name'”, there were some excellent ideas. The results were pure gold and you can watch them all below.
