What a joke

Harry Hill was all set to release a new album of comedy tracks, which had planned on calling Sgt Pepper’s Volume 2 (and would no doubt have been hilarious, like all comedy album are, right?), but has run into some copyright trouble regarding the name. Who’d have thought it, eh?

Apparently he had also planned on making a mock version of the original Beatles album cover, with Harry’s knitted compadres taking the place of the group. Unsurprisingly Apple Records gave a big fat ‘no’ to these plans, leaving Harry and Island right in the doo-doo. Oh dear.

‘Harry is gutted,' said a source to The Sun. 'The label behind the release, Island, have said he has no chance of calling the album Sgt Pepper's Volume 2 for legal reasons. Apple weren't having any of it. Island are now in meltdown because they have no name or artwork with the release scheduled for early November.

‘They need to get the CDs manufactured and sent to the likes of HMV and Tesco as soon as possible. There has never been a case where they have had a record on Amazon with 'Name TBC' as it is now.’ It was a rubbish idea anyway, think of a better one.
