I COULD DO WITH A DEODORANT!

Brown, who once got into a heated discussion with a journalist as to whether he was "smelly", is clearly trying to appeal to a more fragrant audience...

IAN BROWN is to join GROOVE ARMADA and FUN LOVIN’ CRIMINALS at the free LYNX one-day festival to be held in a warehouse in Acton, London, on July 6, NME.COM can reveal.

Brown, who is due to release his third album sometime soon, headlines the gig. Others on the bill have still to be confirmed.

The audience is due to be made up of competition winners – keep checking back to NME.COM for details of how to win.
