Man I need TV when I've got tall tales...

Following the publication of a piece on the Kaiser Chiefs' new album in the News Of The World, (clipping above) Tony Visconti has decided to set the record straight on claims made by the band's songwriting drummer, Nick Hodgson, regarding the song Man On Mars.

I'll leave you with TV's response...

"I have never asked David Bowie to write lyrics for the Kaiser Chiefs. I was hired for the production job because of Nick's obsession with Bowie and T. Rex, and I freely shared some of my production "secrets" with them. But, that did not include getting Bowie to write lyrics for them. That is absurd."
