Aww if that is the case it is a bit sad. Eyebrow piercing. Tattoo? Midlife crisis? However I have the utmost respect and liking for Sean so I will leave his private life to being just that.

Good call and i find so much of adam curtis' films are manics adjacent anyway but this new one especially so, though i'm only up to episode 2 which includes a fantastic use of a mekons track (where were you?). Generation terrorists is loaded with the themes you'll find in this series with methadone pretty immediately springing to mind.

Speaking of connections between manics and adam curtis' latest, there's a superb sequence at the end of part 4 that's set to the johnny boy track "you are the generation that bought more shoes and you get what you deserve". Produced by james of course, so the circle is becoming complete! I think i have the single somewhere.

Following on from the news that Sean lives in Huddersfield, I was out and about in one on the villages on Huddersfield's outskirts today when I spotted a high spec car which had the number plate "M10 JNK"

Unfortunately my excitement that I'd spotted Sean in the wild and he had a rather ridiculous Manics themed numberplate turned to disappointment when the driver appeared and wasn't him. Could have been his Dad I guess but wasn't Sean.

If James has sang again with The Anchoress then that's out in a few weeks.

KYE released 19 March 2001. Do they ever release on the same day of the anniversary or is it just kinda same year-ish?

He was picked for a second chance or something like that, by a "backstage judge" or whatever they call him. I don't watch the show so not familiar with all the details.

Music reaction videos on youtube are a curious thing, i've watched a few and wondered if the manics ever crop up... There's not a great deal but this guy trying to get his friend in to them hasn't been going so well.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...hmdLI9y17pAfA4

Can you guess which track unlocked the band for him?

This, though, is a good one for how it opens up their discussion about body issues but what a hell of a first track to start with.
