Formed in 1995 by Paul Draper (vocals, guitars and piano), Mansun comprised of Dominic Chad (lead guitar, piano), Stove King (bass), and Andie Rathbone (drums).

'Attack Of The Grey Lantern' was the band's superb debut album produced by Mark Stent and Paul Draper. Originally released in 1997, amid a fanfare of media expectation, it spawned four hit singles 'Stripper Vicar (no. 19), 'Wide Open Space' (no. 15), 'She Makes My Nose Bleed' (no. 9) and 'Taxlo$$' (no. 15). The album was a success, remaining in the UK album chart for 19 weeks and peaking at number one; knocking off Blur's self titled album in the process.

This 3CD Collector's Edition of this classic album, which consists of the original album remastered, with two bonus discs full of pre-album E.P.'s ('Take It Easy, Chicken', 'Skin Up Pin Up'), alternative, acoustic and live versions; b-sides ('Rebel Without A Quilt', 'Flourella', 'The Duchess,' and many more), and Draper's co-write with Magazine's Howard Devoto, 'Everyone Must Win'. Extensive sleeve notes written by the lead singer are also featured, as is a new remix of '(I'm In A) Wide Open Space' by Greg Downey.

Absolutely cracking edition of this album. A lot of bands do a re-release with a few extra songs that were never good enough to put on an album in the first place but this is absolutely packed with live and acoustic versions that rival the original releases.

I bought this a couple of months ago at something around £15 and it was worth every penny. Have some heat!

Man-tastic album

Worth it for Wide Open Space alone

Great album - at this price its worth the upgrade to the 3cd version

How can i NOT own this!

Awesomeness. Amazing album, amazing band.

Love this album but i haven't got the 3 cd version so ordered from play.com for quidco, hot!!

I remember buying the original 1 disc version of this from Virgin Megastore on the day of release. I must confess to being disappointed. 'She Makes My Nose Bleed' + 'Wide Open Space' are undeniably genius (probably why both were singles), however, the rest was a bit 'meh' IMHO. Never played it in years.

This is Hot!! Great and very underrated album, a classic!

Simple brilliant album. Most underrated band on the 90's!

They're not from Manchester- they're from North Wales and Chester, I used to live next door to Paul Draper.

Great price if you don't own the album, but the extras are nothing special, so if you own the original release there's no point in upgrading.

Mansun were a great band.

Couldn't disagree more! Extras are well worth the money IMHO
