I Can Only Disappoint U reaches 21!

“Something Tragic , Beautiful And Romantic (but in a cheap way)” – Paul DraperDisappoint U collection Mansun’s first EP release from Little KIx turns 21 today.

I Can Only Disappoint U reached number 8 in the UK charts and featured another four new recordings across the formats including Chad’s solo track ‘Golden Stone’.
A remix 12” for clubbers by Paul Oakenfold was also available prior to release.
With an instantly catchy riff and dreamy band video , it was always destined to be a firm fan favourite and was also performed on Paul Draper’s solo tour.


27 October 2017 saw the release of Paul’s fourth solo single from ‘Spooky Action’  featuring mixed edits of ‘Grey House’ and ‘Who’s Wearing The Trousers’.

Available as a limited edition silver 7″ single with pvc wallet and inner artwork and digital download. A promo CD was also issued to radio and press.





The very first Mansun vinyl release pressed by EMI in 1995. This is the 7″ promo of Take It Easy Chicken. It plays the same track both sides. Two copies are shown here , one was Paul Draper’s own copy with the sleeve signed to me after i acquired the record from a collector. The second copy looks in better condition with plain sleeve which i bought from a German dealer. Only a ‘handful’ were made and is very collectable.
