Kate Moss kills Kills cuts

Song-filled laptop goes for supermodel-assisted swim

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

WSA Spindly, party-hopping Croydon supermodel Kate Moss is in some bother with her bloke, Kills muso Jamie Hince, after allegedly hurling his laptop - replete with new songs - into a swimming pool.

The Guardian website happily reported yesterday that Moss flung Hince's bag into the pool during an argument. Hince, whose 2003 debut album with bandmate Alison Mosshart was entitled Keep On Your Mean Side, apparently leapt in to retrieve the bag, but frantic resuscitation attempts failed to revive either his dripping BlackBerry or saturated laptop.

The laptop, according to the Mirror, held six new Kills tracks - naturally there's no back-up. Tsk, these artistic types.

Serial rocker-shagger Moss is supposedly doing the honourable thing and replacing the laptop, although the tunes will presumably need to be recorded again. Moss, who's been known to do a bit of warbling for the likes of Primal Scream and Babyshambles, reportedly asked her chap last year if she could do some guest vocals with The Kills - a suggestion which was met with scowls from an exasperated Mosshart.

Moss's thwarted musical ambitions are not believed to be connected with the hardware-drowning incident. No word yet on the make of the laptop - but hey, you've got an IT angle, what more do you want? ®
