Recently discovered the genius(es) that are (is? they might be the same bloke) reallybanderson and reallyjcocker on Twitter. Not actually Brett Anderson and Jarvis Cocker but really really funny anyway. Here's what they've said on our beloved Manics...

Oh, and 'Brett' refers to himself in third person in tweets, if some of them sound confusing.
WARNING! Some are in bad tast- Oh wait, this is manics_lolz; bad taste isn't a warning, it's an incentive.

Actually the Manics pioneered an early model of carbon offsetting. James and Sean would take on Richey's calories

I was present at V in 98 when a mixup saw some Mancs, rather than the Manics, be led onstage. Two hours of live benefit fraud #theNorth

Britpop secret: The Manics' Holy Bible was titled The Koran for the Saudi market..and SuperCymruCastroDragonSaysYa! for the Japanese

Should never have told Richey Edwards to get lost. Always so literal.

Speaking of Richey- he was never the best speller so he practiced carving 4REAL on Sean Moore's back. Was like a butchers table after

Say what you like about Richey Edwards but... actually say what you like. He won't be issuing any rebuttals from Goa.

Brett Anderson always loses followers when I tweet about Richey Edwards. Is he so unpopular? No wonder he was a bit sad.

Libraries gave Nicky Wire the power to read every Babysitters Club book

TOTP. I walk into my dressing room to be faced with Nicky Wire in a frock singing I'm Every Woman, surrounded by River Island bags.

Was chatting to James Dean Bradfield earlier. He's in another healthy phase. Says he will cut down to three-layer cheese toasties.


Bumped into James Dean Bradfield. Nearly ricocheted into some cunt's moped. Mood: ennui Music: Black or Blue


Brunch with James Dean Bradfield means watching him eat an all day breakfast followed by a steak and kidney pie.

If wishes were horses, James Dean Bradfield would be eating a horse.

Told James Dean Bradfield that the Royal Albert Hall is rotunda. He thought I was making a statement on their relative size. Smiled


James Dean Bradfield sand 'I'm a little teapot, short and stout' to his niece. She nodded empathetically.

Saw a panda feeding at the zoo yesterday. Upon further inspection I had been watching Nicky Wire eating biscuits.

Found Richey Edwards yesterday hiding in Nicky Wire's closet. Was an awkward moment for everyone involved.

If you're feeling protective, Manics probably get the least stick. Blur and Oasis, and Radiohead a bit, have received far more abuse. And then there's Bernard Butler... poor poor Bernard. I recommend you follow them both ASAP :)
Current Mood: highhigh
Current Music: Badhead - Blur

This is amazing! I totally started following brett after reading all this, and checking out his tweets.

Btw, spotted one you'd forgotten:

Britpop secret: La Tristesse Durerra means 'overwrought Welsh wankers' in French.

Oh yeah that one XD He's amazing isn't he? So amazing in fact that he got interviewed by NME for being the best fake Twitter-er. Highlights:

Which of your Britpop peers are you still in touch with?
I resent the notion that I had peers. That said, former members of Oasis occasionally ask to tarmac my driveway. I often talk to James Dean Bradfield about hair care and portion control, but he never listens. Northern Uproar do my windows.

What's the most hurtful thing anyone's ever said/written about you?
I think the most hurtful thing a journalist wrote was a piece about sexually ambiguous popstars in which a comparison was made between me and Richey Edwards. Thought that was quite insulting. I was way slimmer than that chubby sod.

Here's the link if you want to read the whole thing:

True dat. It's the "no wonder he was a bit sad" bit that gets me :P
