Maker News Special: The Battle of the Brits, 2nd March 1996.

I’ve stared too long at Gallagher’s ugly Arthur Daley meets the missing link visage tonight to have anything much to say about this but I did laugh my head off at the irony of Jonathan King’s opinion being sought about Jackson’s notorious paedo-friendly Earth Song performance though. And there’s still time to get those Knighthood forms filled in.

Hi to all those visiting for the first time from the B3ta boards. The honour is all mine. Cheers!

Before we go back in time for some more Stone Roses let’s stick with 1996 for one more issue. This for Kate who wrote me a lovely email and mentioned it as a favourite of hers.

Richey Edwards still missing. NME news item, 4th March 1995.

Blame it on the fact that I was forced to read Roland Barthes, Mythologies at an impressionable age but all I can see looking at this spread now is “Get Ready Gravediggaz”. They’ve had to wait a long time but Richey Edwards was finally declared officially dead today. R.I.P.

4Real or not 4Real? That is the question.
