The EP that started it all on Parlophone and propelled Mansun into the Top 40.

2 years ago – the China tour!

Two years ago Paul Draper and guitar wizard Ben Sink piggybacked their Japanese acoustic  tour with three dates in China .

Classic tracks such as Wide Open Space , Dark Mavis and Until The Next Life coupled with Paul’s solo output blew away the Chinese fans.

Always a dream Country Paul intended to visit as a tourist became a reality with the three shows that highlighted a huge fan base he never really expected.
In an interview that followed , he expressed interest in returning with a full band in the future. Paul Draper China FullSizeRender

SIX is 22 TODAY

 

My absolute favourite album of all time turns twenty two today . For me , its lost no edge over the years and is still mind blowing today as it was on first release.

Happy Birthday Six! 

Paul signs limited 7” singles


Paul Draper very kindly offered to sign a few remaining copies of his debut solo single ‘ Feeling My Heart Run Slow ‘. Apparently only 20 were left in stock which have been snapped up by eager fans.

Hope you enjoy
