Alex Kapranos has joined the growing call for something to be done about people reselling gig tickets at higher-than-face-value prices:

Organised criminals, except for, erm, not breaking any laws. And while it's true that professional touts are capitalist bastards, until Kapranos starts flogging his own tickets and stops selling them through the booking-fee gouging "agencies", he might want to rail a little less at people exploiting others for profit.
