About this deal

This song leaves you with the sentiment of not taking the whole thing too seriously, it’s just a bit of a joke. Attack of the Grey Lantern is the debut album by English alternative rock band Mansun released on 17 February 1997 via Parlophone.

Having been a huge dance music fan it was really satisfying having a big club hit remix from the album too.I always thought the chords and melody movement were really complex on this song and I can only imagine they’ll make a West End musical out of it in the end, which would be a suitable ending to the life of this record I think.

A sarcastic swipe at the music industry, Taxloss was originally 11 minutes long and encompassed my modus operandi of the time of jumping between genres and parody. A bizarre pseudo rap about a transvestite vicar who cross dresses like his daughter, it seemed a good idea at the time and slightly subversive but seems a little tame by today’s standards where such things are pretty run of the mill. Can someone create a new listing for this one please as I care not interfere in official Discogs entries, sorry ? Throughout the album, the hero encounters a number of immoral inhabitants in a fictional English village.Back in the high days of Britpop, Mansun released an album that sat askew from the pervading happy-go-lucky spirit of the times. This was going to be the big single after the album was released to turn us into a huge pop group, but for some reason or another (everyone has a different story) it wasn’t released and ‘Taxloss’ was put out instead. The Long Island metal band's third album etches arena-sized hooks into their jagged compositions, deftly balancing experimental and poppy inclinations.

They released four classic albums – Attack of the Grey Lantern (1997), Six (1998), Little Kix (2000) and the compilation Kleptomania following the band’s split – as well as a popular and now rare series of EPs. I dont have the album in any other format and dont really know it that well so cant compare but compared to my admittedly small collection of picture discs this is comfortably the best.

There aren't that many metal artists or albums that I care for that much, but ISIS is certainly a band that I do enjoy a lot.
