There are some marvellously warped minds out there. My fave is Rope's The Phase IV Tangalooloos.

The only feeble offerings I could offer would be cover bands called Stairs (for Steps) and Dry Dry Dry (for Wet Wet Wet).

Assuming EC's given permission (which I'm sure he has) no doubt he'll be using the royalties to pay for the wedding (whenever it happens)...

I love Peter Kay. He is a genuine comic genius and is still true to his roots.

Phoenix Nights just has so many comic moments. I love the bits at the end when they show the auditions. My favourite is the one legged Elvis who does Blue Suede Shoe.

What is your favourite EC album sleeve?

Looking at a comment made by Noise Radio in another thread (Seen the new North EC pics?) ie My favorite all time cover picture is Brutal Youth, though, it made me wonder what everyone's fave cover is.

Fire away...

He's a nice bloke to chat to. But musically he's on a different planet to "the future of the four strings...the one and only Mr Bruce Thomas".

For me it's Steve. I reckon even Elvis would have to agree with that!

I've heard EC do MBF as part of a segue on solo tours. I don't particularly like FITD but I'm not a fan of Mr Thumbs-Ups solo stuff anyway.

Before I give you sympathy, is your illness self-inflicted or is it genuine?
