At this Sleeper gig, I noted on the ticket that Mansun were supporting.

This was the same day that 'Wide Open Space' entered the UK singles chart.

Re: Favourite Blur song

For Tomorrow is a favourite.

Especially given that it was released at a crossroads for them (& music). They could easily have took the wrong road. :|

Re: Mansun

Did Mansun headline a tour during the Britpop period?

My (now vague) memory is that they tended to support others, even when they themselves began to have big hits.

Re: The Jimi Hendrix Thread

Given his strong position in music in 1970, I think he could have continued as a major rock star as per The Stones, The Who, Zep, solo Beatles, Dylan etc through the 70s and into the 80s. Probably albums-orientated rather than hit singles, which may have become sporadic. He was apparently off-form j...

Re: The Fleetwood Mac Thread

Peter Green period I like best. 8-)

You would think the later USA-based band was an entirely different act. They weren't bad in themselves, but the 70s-80s hits are overplayed.

Re: Overrated Music

Regarding current artists (whether male or female) 'doing new things': I think that the real ground-breaking work was in what some (like Paul Gambaccini) have referred to as the 'Rock Era' (mid 50s-mid 80s). Since then, it hasn't all been bad. But anything 'new' seems to borrow heavily from what has...

Re: What Song Are You Listening To?

KLL76 - yes, I think Traffic are under-rated.

Re: Mansun

Oasis (like Shaun Ryder/Bez) caught the interest of the UK tabloid media because they were 'local lads'. They joined the dots between the muso, the student, the working lad and the football fan. This enabled their continued mainstream success after their indie mojo stopped working. Mansun by contras...
