    The Kooks have added a number of new North American dates to their summer/fall tour, which now runs from stops in Japan this weekend through a string of UK dates in late November and early December.

    In other semi-related news, the British sailing duo Ben Rhodes and Steve Morrison were forced to change the name of their Kooks-inspired ship before the Olympics in Beijing. Apparently "Jackie Big Tits" (named after a Kooks cut from Inside In/Inside Out) wasn't appropriate, so it's now going by the name "Little Miss Pipedream".
