James must have been lying in No Manifesto when he said he doesn't like The Beatles. Well I've always known Wire is not a person to trust but I haven't seen that one coming from JDB. And Sean has got guns. And Richey disappeared.

I AM HAVING SERIOUS TRUST ISSUES RN

I don't even think they laughed when Lennon were shot and as far as I can find out, none of them designed or built any buildings to justify being called an architect.
They may as well have sang "I lost the international rights to Barney the Dinosaur"!

I'm pretty sure James doesn't like The Beatles, he always pulled a face when Nicky said SATT (?) would sound like Abbey Road etc. Which is weird, if anythind I'd expect James and Nicky to be the other way round.

If James really doesn't like The Beatles, then I hope he doesn't see the interview for Korean MTV that my friend showed me, where, while he can clearly be heard saying "Sex Pistols", when talking of their music influences, the subtitles said "Beatles".

Facepalm! Not only unneeded censorship, but it's also not such an innocent one... And James would be mad too.

S.Y.M.M would be great in the soundtrack of a really dark murder mystery somewhere in the moors of England. Not just saying that because of the name but because of the atmosphere it evokes. It's a very atmospheric song.

Also, make it happen in a snowy wintery scenery.

I always imagined my JRPG-ish 16-bit characters wandering at the snowy side of the world map somewhere near the end of the game, when the story "gets serious".

I don't expect we'll get any new manics material until late 2016. This sucks if true. I don't mind them doing a few gigs for EMG though.

So, I saw this infographic today http://gaspull.geeksaresexytech.netd...0/sidekick.jpg
It's about most iconic side-kicks in pop culture, in chronological order.

And then I noticed... James Edwards! A.k.a Agent J. And I checked the year, it says 1997. Either the authors were Manic-inspired, or I am just Manic-obsessed...

I'm hoping for an 'exclusive download' of some sort before too long.

Watched the Anthem for a Lost Cause video again earlier, it still gets to me every time. What a fine piece of work.

Going to have to disagree with you there. To me it comes across as ham-fistedly as a student film by someone who's just learnt about the unions.

RTF as a whole, really. Save for a couple of songs I think it's pretty much perfect, I used to not like it at all.
