FUC R.I.P.

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.

FUC51 RIP.

    May your passionate sarcasm rear it's wonderful head once again at some point in the future.

  6. I didn't mean all those nasty things I said! Honest! I was only joshin'! COME BACK! Fancy spinning some tunes on the CDJs at some point? No hard feelings (I'll give you some tips on dropping the bass out).

  7. Maybe in a week's time the blog will be over-run by crusties from Hulme posting shit trance MP3s for 4 days, before the police manage to board it up.

  9. Cheers FUC, you did make me stop and think for a while about things... before realising, of course, that I was right all along :-)

  13. The blog post itself reminds me of Steve Coogan's speech as Tony Wilson at the end of 24 hour party people! Was that intentional?

  16. I see it as being deliberately pompous.

    I can imagine Anthony H writing something like that in an old In The City press release.

    I might be wrong.

  24. Say what you like about Wilson, but he probably would've been able to spell 'reins' right.

    I look forward to your first compilation CD

  32. In response to a post, a bit further up the page, can I say that Everything Everything are not the new Joy Division. On the strength of that footage from The Reading Festival, the other night, they're just the new It Bites. End of.
