The NME Cool List 2007 - 42 Cole Alexander, Black Lips (new): The acceptable face of the dirty South. Happy to piss, sick-up or get nudie in front of a paying audience is pretty amazing. Doing it while looking like you've just rolled out of a pigsty on to the stage is even better.

The NME Cool List 2007 - 47 Carlos D, Interpol (re-entry): How is it on the West Coast? Gloomy. A coffin-botherer with the second best 'tache in the business - Interpol's silent bassist really shouldn't be anywhere near as cool as he is, but he pulls off the Victorian undertaker look with devilish poise.

The NME Cool List 2007 - 46 Patrick Wolf (re-entry): Boy wonder. Patrick Wolf has come a long way since stripping down to his waist and wailing out Celine Dion ballads at NME Pub Golf. This year he also brilliantly declared that "Mika is a twat". Check out the new issue of NME, out now, to see the full Cool List 2007, and rate who's cool and who's not at NME.COM/Coollist now.

The NME Cool List 2007 - 15 Lou Hayter, New Young Pony Club (new): More than a porcelain pretty face. In between the Pony Club's mad year, and her Jamie Klaxon-endorsed new-rave-WAG status, she's even found time to release a single with her own frosty-cool band The New Sins.
