i had a couple of friends at uni that were manics fans. One introduced me to the ray of sunshine that is THB and told me to persevere with it

I believed that in the Uk was easier to meet other Manic fans.Tbh in Italy it's even hard to find someone that knows who they are

At work I came across a younger fan so I chatted loads about them with him. There was an older colleague who liked them up to EMG but had gone off them with Truth. (He was the one who spotted that I'd written a slightly embarrassing letter to NME sticking up for James!)

After a few friends at school, I was lucky I guess. There's a club in Hull I started going to at 15, and at the time, it appeared that every Manics fan around went. You Love Us would come on and the dancefloor was full of leaping leopard print and eyeliner. It was pretty exciting.

Jealous of everyone who's had the chance to meet other Manics fans. Never spoken to anyone in person who'd known about the band before I introduced them, except a woman who was next to me at the O2, and that was for about 10 seconds. Even my music geek friends usually haven't a clue.

I've been a fan since September 2010 and most of the other fans I know are people I came across on the internet (on here and on Tumblr). One of them on Tumblr lives about 20 minutes away from me and a lot of her friends went to my 6th form, but if it hadn't been for Tumblr we'd probably have never met.

I know a few people who listen to them occasionally who I didn't meet through the internet - a friend's boyfriend who went off them after SATT, another friend from 6th form and my uncle's partner, and I managed to get my boyfriend into them - but none of them are as big a fan as I am. All of the other obsessives I know are on here or Tumblr.

The Convalescent is really, really brilliant.

Aside from a few dodgy lyrics.

I just bought the Faster/PCP 10" in near mint condition for 10 and the Despair to Where 12" with a slightly distressed sleeve for 3. That can't be bad, apart from me just having spent 13 on songs I already own.

So glad they went back to the Academy type venues. Wonder if they could've one a Radiohead and done two nights at the O2 and one at the MEN every 3 years instead, that'd be shite.

Did he survive after he told you he'd gone off them at Truth?

When I saw the thumbnail of the image below for an article on The Sun's website asking "Are these the worst restaurant customers in Britain?", for a second I thought it was JDB and The Wire.



It would be so like them to abuse the all you can eat buffet.

Ha ha ha, they really are taking a few years out aren't they!

Predicable post from someone: "Looks nothing like them"

I saw a headline on the BBC website that I thought said JDB Collapse. I was like nooooooo, but they weren't being over familiar, it was JJB Collapse.

Someone has probably mentioned this before, but I thought it was a bit silly.

Someone today mentioned that the riff in Let Robeson Sing = Groovy Kind of Love.

Yes I do think it's silly, but it wasn't me guv!
