They definitely gave Morning Glory and The Stone Roses 3 stars each upon release.

By the way, I'd bet my testicles that Q gave What's The Story....a three star review upon its release.

Andrew Collins made the mistake of thinking his voice was fit for podcasting. When it really, really isn't

Had a brief Twitter exchange with him years ago, and he ended his reply to me with "OK mum". I'm not your mum Andrew!
He's insulted me (and presumably others) on here before. Boring fucking hack.

Yes, the Q sleevenotes were all about albums from the past. A bit of research tells me the first 4 came free with the May 1991 issue. The featured albums were: Tunnel Of Love, Revolver, Blonde On Blonde and Brothers In Arms. The next issue also contained four more;  dunno which albums were reviewed. The next two appeared  in August 1992 and were concerned with a Bowie album (Ziggy, I would assume) and The Stone Roses. There doesn't appear to be any more after that.

By the way, I'd bet my testicles that Q gave What's The Story....a three star review upon its release.

I think they did ones for REM's Green and Paul Simon's Graceland.

Paul Heaton personally donated a 'large sum' for staff at the magazine.

Just watched the little video PH made, looks like he's off the booze. Bit weird filling his daughter's bedroom with his old diaries and football trophies...

Greta is exchanging money from US ($) to GBP (£).
The bank only offers bank notes (£10, £20 or £50) with no change available.
If Greta has $357, what is the maximum amount of GBP she can get?
Use the exchange rate $1 = £0.8.

He's been sensibly drinking for years. He cycles to his gigs on tour too. I never saw that coming thirty years ago. Heaton was a massive caner so I pictured him going down the John Martyn route but he looks really good now.  It was when he remarried and went solo. His new wife said he had to shape up to sell himself again.

I remember Collins really going off on one defending alternative medicine on twitter some years back. I completely unaware of his current activities so I'm not sure if he's still does this but at the time I felt he'd outed himself as a proper arsehole.

I used to see him round Didsbury 12/14 years ago, as he was living with a woman from round here. Not sure if that's the lass he married that you're referring to - it was around the same time he took over the King's Arms in Salford.

Mentioned earlier in this thread that the first issue of Q I bought had Heaton on the cover, and I wound up a fan off the back of that, so perhaps part of this cash he's given to their old staff comes from the various Housemartins/Beautiful South CDs I bought 20 odd years ago.

No, that would have been Zena you saw. She is a comedy promoter who runs the Camden Fringe and Manchester Comedy Festival. They had a daughter together but sadly broke up some years ago. Heaton later remarried. I shouldn't have said 'new wife'. His 'wife'.

I probably ought to say that I insulted him quite a lot too. It's not like he just turned up here and went "Mort, you're a fuckwit".
