…it’s ‘Twisted and Bent’.
Here’s a small newspaper advert promoting the release of 7th single , ‘Twisted and Bent’. As well as promoting the single it also gives a wee plug to their tour in support of Ian McNabb and also the Phoenix Festival of that year.
Anyway, I’m off to explore Murphy’s law and the rules of Columbus – back soon.Follow @fivehungryjoes

…is, according to Google Translate, German for ‘I’ve Seen Everything’.
I thought I’d seen pretty much everything when it comes to TCS memorabilia, and then just to keep me on ma toes - this popped through my letterbox.
It’s the European release of fifth single, ‘I’ve Seen Everything’, and it’s all very different to the regular releases. This one is in a jewel case, the CD is grey in colour and the anchor on the spine has the colours reversed – magic!
Ich habe nicht alles gesehen… is according to Google Translate, German for ‘I haven’t seen everything’

Manchester’s ‘In The City’ International Music Convention was organised in 1992 by Yvette Livesey and Anthony H Wilson after the latter had attended New York’s New Music Seminar a few years earlier. Depending on who you spoke to, it was either a vibrant forum for new music and new ideas, a shambolic talking-shop or a slick PR job for Factory records – take yer pick but I’d go for the last one.
Hosted at various venues across the city, it ran for five days and cast a beady eye over the arguments, the scandals, the bands and the doings of the ‘major players’ and ‘important movers’ et al in the music industry.
It’s still going strong too. More info here..
Anyway, back to 1992. Top of the bill (but of course) at Manchester University was The Trashcans, ably supported by The Stairs, Anna and The Frank & Walters for what was the ‘Go! Discs Presents’ showcase.
