Mr. Tea

Shub-Niggurath, Please
He's not right wing "some mongoloid Irish folk band" is funny though i agree

I read somewhere that he called the Daily Mail "the only worthwhile paper" or something similar but quite possibly he only said that to bait worthy Guardian types.

What about newcastle? Dire Straits, Cheryl Cole, Dubstar, Jimmy Nail, Prefab Sprout, Sting, Ant & Dec, THE LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY.

And Sheffield! Pulp, Cabaret Voltaire, Human League, Heaven 17, Thompson Twins and, um, Arctic Monkeys.

Sheffield had ABC, Human League, Heaven 17, Cabaret Voltaire, Warp. I like all that more than anything from Manchester. I love Juice Box but that doesn't seem like 'Manchester' music to me, more like a London outpost, a bit like DJ SS in Leicester and Roni Size in Bristol. They were making music that was being played in raves all around the country, but it was essentially a London style.

Keep up Tea!

Grumpy northern rock singers are always good for abusive quotes. :D

Are there any northerners on Dissensus?

as a born and bred cumbrian who lived in newcastle for 12 years i've always considered manchester to be SOUTH

Heck the Magazine ALBUMS were decent. And not really just a depressing mediocrity dragging a band down like Joy Division. Astonished they're doing so well in the polls here.
