We're off. It's been real, thanks for the memories. Remember back in January? The posts were stronger and cost £15 to read, and hardly any fucker used to come here. Needless to say, those that did have all got book deals now.

We weren't here to provide an answer, just kick off a debate. Hundreds of you loved us, hundreds of you fucking hated us. Manchester is a passionate and sarcastic city and for both of these things, we should be grateful. Musically, it is in safe hands. PR companies - up your game. Journalists - up your game. Thanks. We'll hand the reins back to those on the ground.

Manchester versus Glasgow

First off, I don't proclaim to know a great deal about the current state of the Manchester music scene. After all I only moved here in April after thirteen years living in Glasgow. All I am offering then are some observations on what I've seen here, and some comparisons between the two cities. I may be completely wrong, so have a large pinch of salt at the ready.

Julie from LoneLady got in touch with us (after that MOJO piece). Read her views over the jump.
