          I saw the current Manband supporting Hawkwind at the same venue a couple of years ago, and I must admit they weren't that bad.Tonight though,I've listened to 15 minutes worth of Kingdom Of Noise on itunes and I've made my mind up.I'll save my money and go and see Caravan the following week!
          For all of you who do go.I hope they rock the place, but if they play "Chuffin' like a muffin",feel free to haul their asses off stage and throw them in the river outside.

Yep. "Chuffin" isn't ever likely to feature in my top ten Man songs list. "Miss Cathy" neither.
Boldly going.......

Bad news, I'm afraid - Carlos Tevez has refused to play at Leamington. Speaking through his translator, he explained 'there is misunderstanding. they tell me they progressive band. they tell me they progressing. so why they drop new material? why I have to learn 40 year old song? i need to be near my family in upper llanoleum'.

Former manager Barry Martian called it 'an absolute disgrace', adding that if it had happened in his day, Tevez would have been banished to Gateshead. He added 'those people who thought the 'Welcome to Man' banner was funny must be feeling pretty silly now'.

Not only is he inconsonant, he's also a first rate tw*t    ;D    ;D


And AP, the historic home(s) to members of this Message Board when visiting Wales, is Oystermouth Road and its Guest Houses. I think we've all got tales to tell about some of the places we've stayed.

In fact, I'm feeling a bit of a phoney staying at some posh hotel (even though it's only 19 + brekky).    8)

I'm looking forward to joining the Oystermouth initiation.
I hope we may be accepted into the chosen few.
We normally stay in Neath and drive/taxi!

Rattle your jewellery when you arrive from the PREMIER Inn, so we know who you are!

Fantastic, it was the best thing the band ever did sacking Bob and George and getting the indie kids in wasnt it?

Really looking forward to the inevitable glowing reviews from you, Jules and Tim. (aka the Martin Ace propaganda machine).

Lets face it just how bad would it have to get before any of you would say anything negative about your best mates?

PS
How many people are there in that 800 capacity venue Michael?

It's only Rock n roll music Gav,you either like it or you don't.I live in the east of France,where Man have never toured.Would I go and see them of course.Would I go and see George and Bob if they played here.Definitely.
