Kaiser Chiefs guitarist Andrew White is to take part in an attempt to set a new record for the world's longest scooter rally.

White will lead thousands of other motorcyclists across the length of the Humber Bridge, near Kingston Upon Hull, next month.

More than 548 scooters are needed to break the existing world record, reports This Is Grimsby.

Organisers for the Grimsby And Cleethorpes Scooter Scene said they were “absolutely stunned” when White said he wanted to be involved.

“To have Andrew White riding his scooter over the Humber Bridge and camping here will be amazing,” they said.

White is one of the founding members of Kaiser Chiefs. The group released their last album 'Off With Their Heads' in 2008.

Drummer is keeping busy during band's downtime


Kaiser Chiefs drummer Nick Hodgson has started his own record label.

Named Chewing Gum, the label's first signing are Hull band The Neat. According to Hodgson's Kaiser Chiefs bandmates Peanut and Simon Rix, the drummer is writing material for The Neat as well as producing them.

As well as revealing Hodgson's new venture, Peanut told the Daily Star that Kaiser Chiefs, currently on a band break, have vague plans to start work on new material later this year.

"We're all doing our own thing for a while but will reconvene Kaiser Chiefs probably at the end of the summer," he said.

Hodgson is understood to be looking for other new acts to sign to Chewing Gum, which he has set up with his girlfriend. Kaiser Chiefs singer (and former art teacher) Ricky Wilson is also on board, and is designing a logo for the label.
