Imagine how good “Empty Souls” would sound if it was performed in a similar style to “Of Walking Abortion”...

Too bad, these time-travelling related questions from the two of us are just light spirited hypothesis of a situation that will never happen. Something to just amuse ourselves with. At least mine is. Hope I didn't belittle yours.
Seems like Sean has been asked once too many to me:

He can’t blame Steve Brown for GATS having programmed drums too.

Just having a spring clean... can someone explain why I have 3 copies of Resistance is Futile on Vinyl?

1) Superduper box set
2) white vinyl
3) .....?


Not to mention a book-CD, a jewel case, 2 copies of the album in a plastic wallet, a cassette... but all of those are accounted for.

If only there had been a fourth or maybe fifth colour vinyl, we might have stopped The Gr*****t Sh****n for a week!

Not sure where to put this, so this seemed the best place....

Was at my company's 'strategy' away day today when one of the big bosses said that going down a certain route would mean we'd have to slash and burn, and we all know what would happen if we had to slash and burn?

"We'd have to kill for kicks, kill to live" I considered shouting out before bottling it.

Lovely! ♥
You can immagine what I wanted to shout during my English classes back in middle school every time the teacher said "repeat after me". ♥

Tremendously sad news.

I remember watching short-lived political panel show If I Ruled the World back in 1999, shortly after the Manics won a couple of BRITs, and Jeremy Hardy's politician character on it congratulated the Janet Street Preachers for their win, complementing them on their big teeth.

I remember him being on a panel where the question What are the Brits? came up

He answered An occupying force in Northern Ireland and grinned

He was very funny and this came out the blue. He was far too young to exit the stage
