Ha Ha, let me clear a few things up here!
I put the original comment up on the board. JD sent it to me private and I thought it was a fair enough comment, which it was as it has had a lot if not the most replys per subject on the board. I sent it anonymous because I did not want any name atatched to it so as no one would make any pre judgments about the person who wrote it,(for example me who has caused a few disturbances on this board) purely an independent comment with no name needed (Markus).
I have watched with pleasure the first response from Markus being bitchy and personal going further along to Mark, Rodders, Rich and Graham all giving a fair and decent response (even changing my mind) on the original question. I even thought Di....Nick Kings message was good apart from the last comment about the t-shirt thing which I will explain further.....to cut a long story short for me Manchester, 808state, Black Grape the Roses to name a few has always been about havin a bit front, bein a bit cool, bein a bit of a scallie being mad fer it up for it etc etc. What I am witnessing though is 808state fans wearing a cheaply printed t-shirts (no offence Pete as I have 2) to gigs standing out like sore thumbs looking like something out of a Star Trek convention. The other thing is 808 state come from a real druggy-Manchester background and half of the lads who wear these t-shirts can have no more than 6 pints and then regret it the next morning(Markus). Ha! I have to laugh, the person who runs this site cannot even take on board a comment questioning 808states worth without getting all personal, never mind taking 6 pints, it stinks of cheese.
This is a 808 state discussion board, everyone must be aloud a say wether it is right or wrong in your eyes Markus. It is not good enough to look into the forum records and see who has sent an anonymous post purely because you do not like it and THEN go on the forum and blab about "knowing who you boys are"!!
Rich you are a nice guy I'm sure but we are not friends, and that goes for anyone else out there who thinks that we are all one, all buddy's, we are certainly not!
Markus you do a good job of this site, infact this site is excellent, but try not to tame the conversations that go on to much, remember we are not all the sam(thankfully).
Peace and Love
