It's ok, it's the people who are wrong, not the Manics...

Oh well, #2's close enough - now let them try something more alienating!

it's not enough to succeed, others must fail

my thoughts are they should've released Hold Me Like A Heaven as single #3 rather than D&C, then the album soon after that - following International Blue and Distant Colours, i reckon that'd have been a decent enough radio hit to have got a few more casual sales in. D&C was probably a bit too eccentric a choice for a pre-release track.

Mine just arrived in the post to my office. Apparently it came from Malmö.

I was there last week. I could have collected it for fuck sake!

I currently have a copy on MP3, cassette, three 12" vinyls and five cds. Plus, I was streaming it whilst working - even on silent when I needed to concentrate.

No-one can accuse me of not doing my part!

Still not sure why a soundtrack gets to be number 1 in the album chart. I'm sure they didn't used to be counted, or had their own chart or something!
