I assumed they were Bots like 90% of profiles created on FD. Though I don't this on forums for more popular bands so I don't know, maybe the ghosts of forum members who forgot their login details... (Given too much though to this already)

Very likely not people though and not a glitch, it's those pesky web crawlers working for the big G indexing the sugar coated topping that is the visible web. I guess the site doesn't use any exclusion files.

Really enjoyed this video on the origins of Masses. Loving James's new secondary English teacher look. You know he'd be the kind of teacher who would allow the class to go off on a tangent for the full hour.

I was discussing the Manics with a friend in New Zealand. He was talking about the way James pronounces the word ‘tired’ in songs and that I do the same thing. Must be something to do with the Welsh accent. He then asked whether I knew any Kiwi bands at all. I said none really so he recommended a band called Shihad. He posted about this on Twitter. The funny part is that a member of New Zealand parliament replied to his tweet advising on which albums I should start with. He then made a Spotify playlist for me to work my way through.

So as a result of JDB’s accent I now have the Kiwi government advising me on the best alt rock tracks to check out

Top story. I accidentally reignited a disagreement between Sean and Cornershop on twitter a few years ago. I got to give props to CornershopHQ who have retweeted some campaign material

They could do with updating their "Photos" section on the front page of their website, given under "Latest Photos" it has this teaser for a track which came out in 2014:

Not really a random thought, a random question, how are the JFPL and Rewind The Film records, sound wise, are they worth getting?
