One of the most underrated bands of the Britpop-era may I say!
I was listening to a few Mansun songs on my iPod today and wondered why I hadn't featured them here before now. "Attack of the Grey Lantern" was a fab album which I played and played and played for a long long time.
"She Makes My Nose Bleed" was a great record. In this video, http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=-8MPDK0gW9w, lead singer Paul Draper looks as if he's paying tribute to Midge Ure!
"Wide Open Space": http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=tj7aNPWbvgo&feature=related again a very well crafted and produced song, maybe forgotten now but a classic of its time.
"Six": http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=jpYNvwmlrJY&feature=related An amazing song. This was from later on in their career. I know they weren't always the media's favourite band but I thought they were great, that's what we are missing at the moment - inventive, creative guitar bands rather than the generic indie rubbish which is played to death on Radio 1 :(
