They're playing Bush Hall next March.
but hasn't it been Johnny and no other original members?
"I'll Manage Somehow" was a tune, but I heard the album when it came out and nothing else stood out especially.
The answer is right there.
Or are you being funny?
Supported by the guy from Strangelove. Go if it is literally still 1995 in your head.
Then again their best single sounds EXACTLY like Everybody Wants to the Rule the World... by a band ten miles down the road from them!
So I'm sure some people will welcome them back into the fold.
I talk to Johnny Dean on Twitter, seems a thoroughly lovely bloke.
In an era full of bands that meant at least *something* to *somebody*, Menswe@r managed to mean fuck-all to anybody.
i know lots of people to whom they meant something, in some cases quite a lot
I bought a ticket in good faith that this would be the original line-up performing. Not that I like Men Swear. On the contrary I think they're UTTER SHIT and I thought it'd be jolly good fun to turn up, heckle and chuck some shit at them. Instead of that I find out that this current line-up is nowhere near the original line-up at all. Its the lead singer and a bunch of chancer Camden hipsters. I feel conned…. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!
Original line-up? It's not like they're The fucking Beatles...
I'm sure the original members can still be found in The Good Mixer, sitting in the corner drinking Stella waiting on some Britpop tourists who might recognise them.
Every British band worth it's salt has a classic line-up and Men Swear are no exception, although they are more of a hairstyle than an actual band per se. To not recognise the other member's contribution would be to deny the collective twatishness they brought to the farce that is Menswear. Besides, I hope Gary, Terry, Robbie, Dickhead and Spazz find it within themselves to sue the arse of the current incarnation. Now THAT would be a gig I'd pay to see.
