He won at quality, even if not in quantity.

What a strange programme.

I caught the tail end of that and had to rewind to ensure my eyes weren't being deceived: one of the most cringeworthy things i've seen them do, he looked completely uncomfortable.

Inner eye opening to the stepped scarlet pyramid of the Eastern Seaboard Fission Authority burning beyond the green cubes of Mitsubishi Bank of America, and high and very far away he saw the spiral arms of military systems, forever beyond his reach.
And somewhere he was laughing, in a white-painted loft, distant fingers caressing the deck, tears of release streaking his face.

He really didn't look like he could care less.....after all he had got to sing Libraries gave us power! So all that needed to be said he said. Or sang

He looked like he was out in a barn round the back too....instead of where Kylie was....

This Is Yesterday on Radio 6 (wasn't paying attention, might have been Tom Ravenscroft's show, or the one before that!)

It sounded lovely.

I'm listening to Frank Skinner's radio programme and they're playing You Stole The Sun from My Heart.

Amy MacDonald chose Tolerate as one of her Tracks of Her Years on Ken Bruces show. Also I think I heard something about the band playing on Chris Evans show in the near future.
