As we have known changes in the EBU rules for the final of Eurosong 2009 partly reflects the Polish public broadcaster’s initial position. However due to lack of time Polish fans ask themselves whether the national final will take place as usual. According to some sources in TVP we should rather expect an artistic entry by a singer or a group chosen internally by TVP, but nobody confirms the news officially. On the other hand, more and more names appear in public speculations on candidates for Moscow 2009.

But either way, it’s been hard not to feel a little embarrassed for Justin Hawkins, who quit the band as a way of maintaining his sobriety, launched a number of ill-conceived musical flops (solo album, World Cup song, failed Eurovision entry), and is now all-but-forgotten in America. Which is why you might approach his new project,. Fear not! Or, at least, only fear for 1:17 of the song “Trojan Guitar,” at which point a ridiculous but wholly appropriate voice snottily parodies Britpop. After a long solo, it goes all-acoustic, with Hawkins deploying every register of his voice, and when the band crashes back in, well, it got me.
