If any one in Dublin is seeking a copy of Simon Price's Everything there was one in Liffey Valley B&Q today. They had a table set up with 2nd hand books for charity and had it there. €1 and it is yours

I think My Little Empire sounds like written to describe Kim Jong-un (the North Korean leader)'s rule. And maybe the rule of the dynasty itself. But if we think about the not too old news reporting about the current leader's stress and possible depression...

Happy birthday Sean!

And as my actual random: Do you really believe them that they haven't written a song all year?
True, I've gone for months without writing anything and then it all comes back. But a whole year?

This may seem blindingly obvious but I've only just realised that Nostalgic Pushead is 'Pus-head' as opposed to 'Push-head'. Always been thinking 'what's a 'push-head' when I've listened to it. Finally makes sense now!

Wondered about this for ages myself.

Are you guys serious?!

From the guy that took approximately eight years to 'get' why a 2:2 degree is known as a 'Desmond'.

Superb. Judge Yr'self was fun live, would love to hear James play Love Torn Us Under.

I used to have the Wills and Harry lyric from Sculpture of Man on the back of an army shirt, got weird looks at school.

I always felt Sculpture Of Man, Love Torn Us Under, Too Cold Here and Judge Yr'self were special treats from that era* - looking back I don't think of any of them would have fitted on the actual album, but they're certainly high quality tracks. (Yes, even Too Cold Here.)

One question: is that unsettling, ticking, clicking noise on Love Torn Us Under a metronome or something else? If so, what?

*Yes, I know Judge Yr'self was released much later, but it was written and I believe even recorded in 1995.
