#43 Andy Kaufman created the character of Richey Edwards as a performance project in an attempt to branch out from comedy into music.

#44 (Furty-fur) Everything Must Go album track ‘Further Away’ initially caused controversy and complaints from animal cruelty protestors, who correctly argued it was the 1990s, and no band should be using real fur in any song. The band met up with the protestors and explained of course they wouldn’t do that, they used 100% artificial ‘faux fur’ for every use of ‘fur’ in the song, and they all had a cup of tea and a good laugh about the confusion.

Unfortunately upon the drive home, the protestors, giddy from meeting the band and full of tea and biscuits, didn’t see a large party of foxes, minks and chinchillas on the road...

...until the very last moment, and had to swerve to avoid them, crashing the car. Luckily no-one got hurt.

#45 'PCP' is a titular nod to Nicky's favourite holiday destination at the time, Penrith Center Parcs.

#46 Early printings of the album booklet for Forever Delayed had to be scrapped after a typo meant that one single was wrongly titled as "Them Asses Against the Classes"

#47 Sean only learned to play the trumpet after he overheard Mike Hedges muttering to himself while recording Kevin Carter that it needed "more trumpet". He misunderstood this to mean that he wanted "Moore trumpet", and so immeadiatly learned the instrument in order to lay down the track. This has happened frequently over the years, including on Horse under starlight, Ocean Spray, The future has been here 4 ever, Show me the wonder, Anthem for a lost cause, As holy as the soil, and 30 year war.

#48 Just as James could have been named after a different actor, Sean's parents - big Bond fans- were set to name him Roger Connery.

#49 Back in 2007 Neil Peart wondered who had scribbled all over his newspaper.

Topical additions.

#50 Due to an administrative error / accidentally clicking the wrong autocorrect button in an email, the next Manics tour will be supported by The Vaccines.

#51 COVID-19 tried to infect Sean, but he just told it to get lost and for once it simply had to obey.

#52 Nicky has a had a shed full of toilet rolls since March, ‘just in case’.

#53 James is still not sure if Zoom is or isn’t a real-world, perfected version of Willy Wonka’s Wonkavision, transporting people inside the screen during the call. He has tried contacting Mike Teavee’s agents to confirm or deny, but they are currently ‘out of the office’, a fact which has only resulted in emphasising his existing suspicions it actually is all Wonkavision, after all.

#54 The lyric "And Brian Warner has a tasty little ass" is inspired by the night that Sean and Nicky went to Marilyn Manson's house for a party and tasted barbequed donkey for the first time
