Free Memory Stick From Keane

Free Memory Stick From Keane

Keane are to give out a free memory stick with their new single ‘Nothing In My Way’. Actually, I’m not a fan of Keane but it’s a great idea for them to give a free memory stick with their latest single. Jon Turner, the general manager of Keane’s record label Island, explained that the band were trying out the stick with a hope to develop it into a credible alternative to the CD by 2007. Read the original story on NME. The memory stick will be made available exclusively in HMV shops from October 30 and will cost around US$ 7.46.
