wouldn't it be a better way to pay tribute to the Smiths to write and perform some original songs that are as good? if you can't do that then the tribute is really just an attempt to sell your band to fans of some established act.

well, would you really go and buy that record? I don't think so. I don't think a tribute album comprised of original songs would be a good idea, to be honest. It would be missing the whole point of doing a tribute.

You really cannot read, can you?

That said, I'm only interested in hearing Katy Goodmans version of What She Said. Other than that, I'll pass.

Tribute albums are, more often than not, garbage.

Well, Tanya Donelly and Sixpence are fairly well known. And the Cinerama version is ages old, from the time when they were not yet The Wedding Present but just Gedge and his missus.

Tribute albums are futile. If you wanted to hear Smiths songs, you would listen to the Smiths.

well, actually it's more from the time when they stopped being The Wedding Present to become Cinerama (later to become TWP again).
I love that cover, by the way, it's really good.

How old is Gedgey these days, 102? LOL

Last I heard he was touring the states with his latest floozy.

If I did support United from more than a sporting reason then I think you would be right. There is a tragic political correctness amongst United fans and in particular the local fans.

That is why I liked the chanting of "skinhead skinhead" from your lot yesterday. Many United fans have shaved heads and are far right, still on match days at home they keep their mouths shut. Away in Europe on the other hand those people totally rule.

If I was to support another side out of political reasons it would probably be Millwall because the Chelsea of old is gone. And we already have new City fans here but they are all arab muslims because of your owners. Strange as it may seem we do not have any jewish United fans in Sweden.

We needed this kick up the backside and I have always hated Rio Ferdinand and Anderson. Evra cannot defend for his life and I could go on. Great win for you and I congratulate you already to the title cause you will not drop many points this season.

Sadly this season many top games are played at the same time making it impossible to follow all games like in the past so I have decided to watch United for free online and watch only United games from now on due to lack of time and disinterest in the other sides.

Cheers luv XX
