Album Review

Since Rolf Harris' entire career is based on novelty, perhaps it shouldn't be a surprise that he reworks Alanis Morissette's "Hand In Pocket" Then again, the results — "I've got one hand in my pocket / and the other one is fingering my didgeridoo" — are so terrible, that it's nothing less than shocking and that's part of the reason why Can You Tell What It Is Yet?, his first album of new material in years, is so perversely entertaining.
