Paul Draper has been interviewed in the Chester Chronicle and it is now available to read HERE. He talks at length about his future plans and the upcoming Mansun Convention.
Vicky Clow represented Scotland in Rhythmic Gymnastics at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow last Thursday. She dressed in the Attack of The Grey Lantern cover artwork and performed her stunning routine to Mansun’s Cancer from the legendary Six album. Here is a video of her amazing performance.
The Rock’n’Roll Chemist has posted a review Mansun’s career. He writes about Attack Of The Grey Lantern: “The album is a concept album looking at various bizarre characters amidst life behind the scenes of the village they inhabit, all from the perspective of the Grey Lantern who observes it all. The Stripper Vicar, Dark Mavis, Egg Shaped Fred, Penelope Cheapskate, Fatima Toothpaste, and other residents populate daily life in the town, as it’s revealed that the vicar is a stripper and that Dark Mavis is his daughter. The end of the album concludes with the death and funeral of the Vicar as the entire town gathers to pay their respects”. Click here to read the full article.
