See the doctored CD here thanks to Robert Sharl

Watch the act on YouTube

and Still Listen has posted one of the doctored tracks That's Hot (mp3)

apparently there are 500 versions of this CD around, so I'd suggest that paying £400 for one on eBay is not "being ironic"

A guide to cutting stencils

  • Think from outside the box.
  • Collapse the box and take a fucking sharp knife to it.
  • Leave the house before you find something worth staying in for.
  • It's easier to get forgiveness than permission.
  • Spray the paint sparingly onto the stencil from a distance of 8 inches.

and Banksy's website

Oh, I give up.
