Beth Jeans Houghton named her debut album Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose after a drunken cross-channel ferry trip from Amsterdam with a friend ended up with one of them walking around with a boiled sweet wrapper stuck to her nose pretending not to notice, and getting some rather strange looks from other passengers in the process. For today’s blog, then, we asked Beth and her backing band The Hooves Of Destiny to come up with some more unusual uses for cellophane. Here’s what they came up with.
Toilet trick (causing pee explosion)
Impractical ice rink for mice
To mummify nudists when they want to be buried naked
DIY contact lenses
Windows for treehouses
Shower cap for the singer of
Socks to wear to the pool when you have a veruca

Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose is released through Mute Records in February. New single ‘Liliputt’ is out on Monday.
