Did You Know Richard Ashcroft Is In A New Band?

Me neither!  Apparently he formed a new group called, "The United Nations of Sound" which is a great name.  And he has an album coming out on July 19th.  On NME's site you can also view a video with some studio footage and a sample of some of the tracks.  Finally, you can check out the lead off track of the album, "Are You Ready?" over at youtube which I dub the britpop version of "Mamma Said Knock You Out" by LL Cool J.
