This is quite random but Horses Under Starlight reminds me of the Only Fools And Horses episode when they get rich.

This article made me think of Nicky. Still doesn't make it any more excusable though...

Just been reading Gold against the soul booklet and it states that Andy Bradfield assisted the mixing on the record. Does anyone know if he is related to James at all?

He has an uncle and a cousin (not Sean!) that have played in some band or other I think (sure I've read that somewhere.) But don't think Andy Bradfield is a relation as far as I know!

I've recently got a new habit.
Whenever someone tries to piss me off (and they usually succeed, since I'm quite passionate about things) by saying nasty things about me, I start singing Faster in my head.
But it makes me feel slightly weird, like it's not a nice habit...I end up feeling like Rain Man.

Today I saw someone wearing a t shirt saying something like 'Silicon Alley' and I got excited because I thought it said Suicide Alley.

i went to the tracey emin exhibition in london the other day, and one of her pieces said "people like you need to fuck people like me". this was from before SATT, so i was wondering if anyone knows if the manics lifted the line from her for "underdogs" or whether it is a coincidence..

Cute. No idea what the references are about though!

I think he means James and him were fans of friends but didn't want people knowing.Fun Bobby was in a couple episodes of friends.

My friend pointed out that everytime she comes into the charity shop I work in, I'm hoovering. Nicky would be so proud!

edit: also, motorcycle emptiness was just on Absolute Radio and in the last verse, they cut out the first two lines (the 'drive away and it's the same' ones) and just played the second two - is this on the FD version or is it some weird absolute radio thing?

I think it's the original radio edit of the single; if you watch the official video those lines are cut out as well! It's disappointing cause I'll be there singing along and then end up being out of time because those lines are missing from the radio edit
