  1. always reminds me of U2 versus Echo and The Bunnymen in the eighties - the mighty 2 basically go and live in a bus in America until they break through while the Bunnymen were just too cool for all that hard work. Take a wild stab in the dark as to who the NME thought were 'cooler'?
    Are English bands scared of a bit of tough graft?

    Forgive me, but wasn't it Liverpool Scene who did the Blue Horizon pisstake, not the Bonzos ?
