A news story gets linked in on the Primal Scream forum and the poster says something like shame on Mani for playing with known Tory Bryan Ferry. My thinking is Roxy Music were great and if that's his reason for playing with Ferry then so be it. Considering the amount of abuse Mani and Bobby G have dished out to all and sundry over the years you'd think he'd be able to take a slight dig quite well. Not so. See the full rant below under his very own pseudonym of 'mr gary'
"mani took the session on a day off from the british tour,with the express intention of using it to keep playing for a day rather than hanging around some hotel bar.wasnt interested in the guys politics,or his sons stance on hunting,just to play with a guy who was in roxy music,who incidentally,are one of ALL the screams favourite bands. if this doesnt please you anal fuckers then FUCK YOU YOU BORING CUNTS !!!!!!. you really should start a band yourselves rather than pontificating about the actions of others. try getting out of your houses more wankers,theres a world out there you know,or are you all too shit scared to join it,and rather prefer the anonymity of dissing people with a higher calling than yourselves from behind a pseudonym ?. TOTAL TOSSER !!!!!."
What can you say to that??? There's some truth in there as he likes to play, he had a day off, he likes Roxy Music blah de blah, all well and good but does being in a band mean he has a 'higher calling' than us forum dwelling plebs who abuse people behind pseudonyms (an ironic example of one being 'mr gary')? He should just try making a decent album again seeing as there hasn't been one from them lot since XTRMNTR or Evil Heat at a push.
