At a recent Lovells press bash partner David Harris shocked journalists when Black Eyed Peas hit Shut Up started emanating loudly from his jacket. It turned out that this wasn’t a less-than-subtle suggestion to silence the questioning hacks, the song was actually the ringtone on his mobile phone.
Much to Tulkinghorn’s disappointment, Harris hadn’t actually selected the song himself – it was the work of his teenage son, who had obviously sneakily downloaded the funky ring onto on his father’s phone. And this wasn’t a one-off incident. Sources at Lovells confirmed that Wheatus’s Teenage Dirtbag has also been heard drifting down the corridors from the capital markets group on a regular basis.
