Demystified and accessible is so wrong, wrong, wrong. It's the over eagerness of the muzos themselves, in many cases - and the aggressive marketing by the very people who should be looking after their acts that ruins it all. It's like Mr. Corbett showing his hand. I'm glad that most of my heroes turned out to be top people, but still want be able to wonder what makes them tick.

For that i am actually glad Julian retains some aloofness.

I particularly like it when a band enter that stage in darkness and rip into two songs, before addressing the audience. That, in a previous band was a little acknowledged trick we used to employ. Never failed. Well, except for a gig in Manchester, when we had to ask the crowd to pass us their drinks in a more orderly manner.

Aloofness is silly. I see bands all the time. Pushing is annoying though.

What's Manchester Ritz like? I'm thinking of going to The Membranes/Brix & The Extricated/ The Nightingales, just for a lark.

The Ritz is a good venue,sprung dance floor though I tend to go upstairs.
