Steps have now put in a final push offering the chance to win gig tickets, a meet and greet and a gold disc of their new album with a purchase of the album. What do we want from the boys in response? Chance to win a tour of Door to the River and a signed hoover from Nicky?

This is brilliant. Voodoo polaroids on sale now! Quite like the t shirt though.

Aye. They got me with that one.

Think it's actually the first Manic's CD I've bought since The Great Western.

I would definitely buy more copies for a chance to tour the studio. That would be a massive incentive

I just want them to retain some dignity at the point. Steps are essentially giving away nothing now, just getting their fans to participate in some glorified gambling.

You’ve got nothing left, H from Steps.

See, the Manics could do something like this, a chance to meet them on every tour date. Over to you Nicky...

In steelbook case, with a 60-page booklet, and 17 bonus tracks of similar quality. And a splinter of the true cross.

I had the chance to do some recording at Faster before it shut down so I had a nose around but a trip to Door To The River would also be very welcome.

And a UK General Election twenty months away as well! Imagine the madness those parties are going to do?
Steps, if you win you bring nothing but the past. Nothing that reflects the present.

You get the download too which is valued at a fiver, so Nicky's signature is worthless by this point.

You have to pay P+P for the individual items but not for the bundle. Even so, putting the tee on the store for £5 this morning was a WEK move.
