Well, it wouldn't just wouldn't be a Scottish newspaper without an utterly random Robert Burns story, would it?

From yesterday's Herald of Glasgow:

When artist Graham Fagen approached legendary British music producer Adrian Sherwood about a long-treasured scheme to match the words of Burns with the sounds of Jamaican reggae, it was only a matter of minutes before Sherwood – never afraid of an offbeat musical adventure – said yes.... [since then] he has produced a CD and a video documenting the musicians at work on dub versions of the lament and Auld Lang Syne.

I know, I know, you're asking: but can I get reggae Auld Lang Syne on iTunes? Well, no. In the mean time, may I suggest Senor Coconut's merengue rendition of Riders on the Storm?
