I hope that wierd blog is included - was that a 10 years thing? I remember is being a bit odd but appreciated finding out what the fast talking bit was in Shotgun.  Forgotten it now though.

God, I remember that. It was fascinating but definitely gave me an inkling Draper might be a bit "peculiar".

I hadn't considered Mansun since about 2001 and wouldn't have clicked on this thread otherwise - but the last ChartMusicPodcast brought me here. What's going on?
I looked up the podcast and it turns out to be four and a half hours long. When does Mansun crop up?

Listen to it all.
Then all the other episodes.

Chart Music is the best podcast going. I recently listened to it all from the start, and got up to date only a week or two ago. Fantastic stuff

I am listening to it now. Mansun talk begins at about 2 hour 54 minute mark.

It is indeed a good show, although they're rather labouring the point about Melody Maker's musical conservatism.

LOVED Mansun in-period, got all the early EPs, wore out the grooves on the b-side to Stripper Vicar, a song called No One Knows Us, felt alienated by the bondage trousers, only really got into Six later in life but I'm glad the legacy of their first two albums is assured
