welcome to the site

After much consideration I have decided to turn soundandstatic into


my reason is simple , most of my posts are about the man and the band and i wanted to create a really comprehensive fan site.

It’s in early stages with old posts at the moment but i am determined to make this a massive compendium over the next year or so…..

Hope you enjoy

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 .
