My absolute favourite album of all time turns twenty two today . For me , its lost no edge over the years and is still mind blowing today as it was on first release.

Happy Birthday Six!

Mansun – SEVEN EP is 22!
















22 years ago Mansun released the mighty ‘SEVEN EP’  choosing the lead track ‘Closed For Business’ over ‘The World’s Still Open’ which was deemed ‘too commercial’.

It peaked at number ten in UK charts and was released later in Japan on 10th December.

Three commercial formats were available  – 7″ /CD 1 and CD 2. A host of other collectible formats also exist .
