RED BULL WELCOME TAKEOVER OF FORMULA ONE BY LIBERTY MEDIA

Red Bull Racing has called on Formula One’s new owners Liberty Media to make the sport more broadly accessible following completion of a deal that values the sport at £6bn.

Christian Horner welcomed the deal, and the decision to retain 85-year-old Bernie Ecclestone as chief executive for a transitional period. He hopes this change will give the sport a chance to address major challenges.

Horner said: “I think F1 is guilty of being too complex, the regulations are hugely intricate, so the key factor is it needs to be kept simple,” he said.

“The casual viewer needs to tune in and follow and understand without having to be a specialist in DRS or energy recovery systems. I think we need to go back to basics son some of these regulations.”

“Serial winning in sport is never popular, and fans aren’t going to engage if they know what the outcome of a race is going to be. ”

SIR IAN BOTHAM TACKLES BIGGEST MALE TABOO

Sir Ian Botham, legendary cricketer and one of the world’s greatest ever sportsmen, has come forward to talk about arguably the most taboo of male subjects – erectile dysfunction.

Encouraging men not to suffer in silence, Sir Ian has spoken out about the measures he’s taken to safeguard his sexual performance now he’s reached 60, as part of his healthy lifestyle and why the new Vigore treatment is the very best way forward.

Vigore is a restorative men’s treatment that has the potential to help more than 5 million men in the UK who suffer from mild to severe erection problems as a consequence of the natural ageing process or other medical conditions. It can also safeguard against a loss of performance in future.

It is safe, painless, non-invasice and drug-free, and uses proven sound wave technology focused on improving blood supply to the penis – the commonest cause of erectile problems.

Vigore is now available at a large number of clinics across the UK.

NEW ORDER LAUNCHES NEW 'STRAY DOG' BEER

One of Manchester’s most legendary exports, New Order, have joined forces with Moorhouse’s Brewery of Burnley to launch an exciting new beer, set for release later this autumn.
 
The premium 4.2% beer, named Stray Dog (after a track on the band’s recent album Music Complete), is a refreshing and clean tasting golden ale with hints of citrus fruit and lychee, all balanced by a subtle bitterness.  Brewed using American Cascade, Centennial and Willamette hops, with the finest English Maris Otter malt, it was developed by head brewer Dan Casaru at Moorhouse’s new £5m state-of-the-art brewery after a series of tastings earlier this spring. 
New Order commented : “It’s been a pleasure to work with Moorhouse’s of Burnley on our first foray into the brewing business. Even more so that they’re celebrating their 150th anniversary, and have such a rich heritage in the north west” 
 
The beer will be available exclusively in Mitchells & Butlers pubs from August Bank Holiday weekend, ahead of national availability in September.

Blue Raincoat Songs join forces with Kobalt Music Publishing

Blue Raincoat Songs, the publishing company led by Jeremy Lascelles and Robin Millar, announced today a new partnership with Kobalt Music Publishing. The long-term worldwide administration deal will mean that Kobalt will provide a variety of publishing services to Blue Raincoat including copyright administration and royalty tracking.

Jeremy Lascelles said “Blue Raincoat Songs will be a very creatively driven operation, but we know how important it is to have really efficient registration and collection systems in place. Kobalt’s reputation in this area is second to none and they will provide a global resource and infrastructure that should be a perfect complement to our creative endeavours. Plus it will be nice having them on our team rather than as a competitor!”

Richard Sanders, President Kobalt Music Group said “All of us at Kobalt look forward to adding value to the roster of Blue Raincoat Songs writers by enhancing Jeremy and Robin’s creative expertise with our global rights management platform.”

Jeremy Lascelles and Robin Millar announce the launch of Blue Raincoat Songs

Blue Raincoat Music, one of the UK’s fastest growing artist management companies, announced today their expansion into music publishing with the formation of Blue Raincoat Songs and their first signing, the song writing legend Mike Chapman.

Founded by some of the most heavyweight figures in the business Jeremy and Robin, with the backing of Chrysalis’s Chris Wright and former Virgin Entertainment Chairman Robert Devereux, aim to bring back the true spirit of independent music to the industry.

Blue Raincoat Songs’ primary focus is to maximise their artists’ opportunities through their own brand of specialist expertise. Between them the founders have an unrivalled pedigree in the music business, which they will be utilising working with their first publishing signing, legendary songwriter/producer Mike Chapman.

Mike was part of the Chinn/Chapman song writing team behind the biggest hits for artists such as Suzi Quatro, Smokie, Mud and the Sweet in the ’70’s – classics such as “Can the Can”, “Devilgate Drive”, “Ballroom Blitz”, “Tiger Feet” and many more. On his own, Mike went on to produce four huge albums for Blondie including the classic ‘Parallel Lines’, whilst as a writer the hits kept coming with songs like ‘Mickey’ for Toni Basil.

The deal with Blue Raincoat Songs covers the territories of the UK, France, Australia, Japan, S.Africa, and includes songs from Mike’s catalogue such as ‘Love Is A Battlefield’ recorded by Pat Benatar and the huge worldwide hit ’The Best’, most famously recorded by Tina Turner.
