Peter Gabriel Enlisted As Talent Judge

TV Talent shows with judges more preoccupied with the hairstyles and teeth quality of contestants have competition in the UK starting in the fall from a new show that should put a lot more stock in actual talent than appearances.  The Source will conduct talent screenings and be produced at The Factory, a music club run by Peter Hook.  And the judges will reportedly include Peter Gabriel and Ian Brown, the former lead singer of the Stone Roses.  Producers promise no Simon Cowell type judging will be used to evaluate the bands on this show  .  Hook laid it one the line, saying, 'Those other talent shows are bullshit. they're just made for TV not for the music'.  The top band will score a payout of around $12,500 and get a record deal that will split music sale proceeds 50/50 with the group.
