I did like the debut, certainly one of the best efforts from lesser Britpop lights. It had a certain twisted urgency to it and some good hooks that elevated it above the rest of that slurry of mediocrity that was dumped on us in '96-'97.

Oh, Richard Hawley. Never knew that. Saw them once, at Brixton Academy, sandwiched between Starsailor and... ah, let me think... Muse? No. Hang on, it'll come to me.

Hi there! I can exclusively reveal that there is absolutely no chance of a reunion. Sorry.

(Crispin's now some sort of music business bigwig and was a Change UK European Parliament candidate, Richard's doing his own stuff as is Simon in a more lowkey way. The latter is no longer married to Kate, who is as lovely as ever. Their original drummer Dee died a couple of years ago (Richard didn't go to the funeral. Those two had fallen out in a big way, although to be fair I don't know if this was the reason for his non-attendance) and his replacement Andy and his equally sweet wife Ali now run a successful studio/venue on the outskirts of the city.)

This is your showbiz reporter in Sheffield. Thank you.
