I wish Sean would let James and Nicky get a word in edgeways in interviews. Starting to grind my gears a tad.

Yeah, the "Uses of Literacy" piece! The Nicky/Jesus one was particularly impressive.

PFAYM and the surrounding publicity/attitude/bullshit put me off the band completely, yes. The same is true for a large number of long-time fans, haven't you noticed?

As for harsh.. if you think going off the band who recorded Motown Junk, Motorcycle Emptiness, From Despair To Where, Faster, ADFL, Tolerate, Masses, The Convalescent, 1985, Imperial Bodybags and All Is Vanity because they made a conscious decision write an album of hollow soulless Radio 2 pop songs like It's Not War and Some Kind of Nothingness to play on Strictly is harsh I think you need your head read.

I'd say that the two songs you mentioned from PFAYM, tzb, are better than at least "the convalescent" and "imperial bodybags".

But that's just me. Horses for courses, and all that.

Yeah, I think I would agree with tzb on that one. What's wrong with Imperial Bodybags?

The lyrics(cringeworthy if you ask)... if it were just an instrumental it would be lots of time better. Or if Wire rewrote the lyrics

It's Not War and Some Kind Of Nothingness have the same heart and soul as the songs you've just mentioned above them!

Nowt wrong with "imperial bodybags", I just prefer "some kind of nothingness" and "it's not war". I think they're better songs, is all.
