Exposed! Nuts writer is closet Tracy Chapman fan

There was much amusement at IPC this week when Ignite – IPC Media’s men’s lifestyle brand, which includes NME, Loaded, Nuts and Uncut – merged their iTunes servers and several staff members found their music library publicly available to everyone on the 4th Floor.

The staffer with the reddest face was Nuts writer Adam Ralph, whose library, ‘DJ Ralph in Da House”, was exposed for all to see.

A source tells Axegrinder his horrific music collection contained “everything ever recorded by Tracy Chapman”, as well as “a lot of Macy Gray”, and even the hit ‘Venus’ by Bananarama.

Although female staffers cooed at his ‘Valentines Mix for Jen’ playlist, it’s now unsure whether he will ever write for the NME.
