I get it, he's talking about defending the middle ground which risks one being labelled a fence sitter i suppose but if he's not necessarily picking a side he's sure as hell rejecting what the tories and whatever the shoggoth form ukip is these days is offering (and for good reason). I get that but the major problem i have with orwellian is that the lyric is using daily heil headlines like non-existent book burnings and saying "it feels impossible to pick a side" when it clearly isn't. But sure, james makes a more succinct point than what that clumsy lyric manages to do in my opinion.

Actually you made a great point in other music:

Quote:
I'm tired of Brexiteers' totalitarian nature trying to define Britishness as monolithic. and static. Not merely content to change how we interact with our close neighbours, they want redefine who we look at ourselves in the mirror.
To me there is no middle ground with brexshitters who do this, it's their attempt at revisionist history and the "war on wokeness" as the tories have called it is a further attempt to peddle outright lies about our imperial past.

Last night I sent an email to the show asking about the smiley face on the cover.
It didn't get read out.

Glad they chose Between the Clock and the Bed. One of their best duets. Certainly the best male duet. A high point of Futurology.

And when James mentions if he could speak to his former self about enjoying success.
KYE box preemptively knocked before it's even out!

Are they genuinely promoting a playlist?

Yes, but they didn't say they weren't putting something together regards KYE.

I have a feeling that maybe James and Craig used to be London drinking buddies back in the day. Can't think of any other reason why they are on the show!

If Nick was in the studio, more likely he was working on the solo album (if not just hoovering...). From the interview with Sherbet, I don't think the lads have anything lined up for festival and support slots.

Both massive music fans as well as coming to prominence in the 90s, I bet they knew each other a bit.
