Retro Saturday: Mansun

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,, lead singer Paul Draper looks as if he's paying tribute to Midge Ure!

"Wide Open Space": again a very well crafted and produced song, maybe forgotten now but a classic of its time.

"Six": 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 :(
