August 2008, but that's not the point. The point is that the guy didn't know who R.E.M. are and so he wasn't able to understand what band I was asking him about

I accidentally put my HMV receipt in the bag I gave to the Manics yesterday so now I can't claim the points I got yesterday anyway haha. Wish I could afford to spend 500 in HMV!
