More Digital they've picked up on Mansun vs Mansun

Now Digital Spy have picked up on the ongoing debate between Paul Draper and @OfficialMansun without unfortunately picking up on the underlying tone or humour, at least from Paul Draper's point of view.

Check it out...

Mansun vs Mansun

Things have got a little weird on Twitter over the last day or so. Paul has made a connection with an aspiring American rapper who's moniker is... Mansun... and whose Twitter user name is @officialmansun. The conversation between them both is interesting to say the least,,,

Digital Spy report on the Petition

It's really cool that Digital Spy have picked up the news on the petition.

Here is the link to the story if you haven't seen it:

N.B. In the article they erroneously states that Paul responded after this site "pressed" for the solo album release. This is not true. This site has only asked for people to sign the petition, we wouldn't "press" Paul to do anything! We linked, and attributed to the petition to Jules' work on the FB Petition page (please LIKE it if you haven't already) in all our references to Paul getting in touch.

The latest from Paul...

Paul has been in touch with Jules on the Petition page:

I saw all the lovely messages of support at the marc riley show, marc and his producer were literally overwhelmed with emails of support and questions about my future plans so thank you to everyone who emailed in, message received. As it was Menace Beaches show we thought it best not to overshadow them on the night by dwelling on myself on the air but the message was received loud and clear................

Paul returns to Twitter

Paul Draper has signed up once more to twitter. He can be found @pauledraper. I suspect he'll be on receive rather than transmit for the time being!

Paul Draper's Solo Album - Petition on Facebook and Twitter

Paul has basically said that if we can get enough people to express an interest in his solo album, that he'll release it. The Mansun / PD community on Facebook have put together a page to be found here:

Please, please, please Like this page.

South of the Painted Hall has also set up a Twitter account that you can follow to show your interest in this album


This twitter account will follow you back and occasionally let you know how far we've got (if at all).

If we can get enough Likes and Followers I think this will happen!

Spread the word!
