School of rock

Ed Miliband, well meaning and generally decent though he seems, comes across as a bit of an Alan Partridge figure at the best of times (largely thanks to the voice). However, never has the comparison been more apt than yesterday, when, while filling in for Jeremy Vine on Radio 2, he took lessons in extreme metal vocals from Napalm Death's Barney Greenway. Needless to say, he wasn't very good.

In truth, Miliband has probably already got a bit of credibility within that sphere, given his association with massive gravestones and his niche appeal to the electorate.

So what's next - Ken Bruce collaborating with Squarepusher?
