Hi, I'm Sonia. Just Sonia.

Better the devil you know than the devil you don't
I'll give you my heart and my soul if you give me your love

Oh no, don't tell me lies boy
Oh no, don't make me cry
Oh no, don't tell me lies boy
Oh no, don't say goodbye

Better the devil, better the devil
Better the devil you know than the devil you don't

I think you all know what I mean, eh?

Hi! I'm Hartley Hare from well-loved Childrens programme 'Pipkins.' I have tried to listen to both bands, but the Ipod earphones keep falling out my ears, even when I sellotape them in. Therefore I have no further comment to make regarding this particular thread.

Ok folks, look here's the deal. My names is James Randi and I am the scourge of the hucksters and grifters who prey on an unsuspecting and sadly stupid public to make a quick million bucks or so. Hey! All these dudes have to do to make a quick million bucks is prove to me beyond scientific conjecture that what they're doing is on the level. Hey, but guess what: they can't. And why can't they? Because they are THIEVES AND CHARLATANS and their only purpose is to get public exposure which allows me to get public exposure and allows me to raise like millions and millions from the unsuspecting and sadly stupid public for the James Randi Foundation. This foundation does a lot of good. Recently it built an olympic sized swimming pool on a huge estate: my estate.
Anyway, so as you good folks don't get drawn in and ripped off by these THIEVES AND CHARLATANS, here's what you gotta do. Have a look at their credentials:
Uri Geller: has big sofa, supported Reading Soccer Club and psychically willed them into the Premier Division of Soccerness. Or rather his didn't. Only as soon as Uri Geller stopped willing Reading Soccer Club into the Premier Soccer Division did Reading achieve the feat. Friend of Michael Jackson (in the same way as Eugene Landy is a friend of Brian Wilson).
Mystic Meg: shit reporter on the United Kingdom's The Sun newspaper who filled in for the astrologer person and ended up making a career out of being a Rick Wakeman lookalike.
Marcel Marceauxxxx: don't trust this guy, he don't talk enough. Pol Pot didn't talk much either. QED
Keanu Reeves: not a bona fide psychic. Not a bona fide actor.
David Ikea: this guy is interesting being as he was a soccer star for Coventry City, once of the biggest soccer teams in the world. Actually he isn't.
The other people I don't know, but you can be damned sure of one thing: they are all THIEVES AND CHARLATANS!
Not one of these dudes can "feel" whether Supergrass or the Manic Street Preachers was the better band, only science can prove that conclusively. And here's how in my patented Randi Three-Steps-To-Prove-Anything theory. You look at the chart positions and add them up so that they make sense a bit by awarding more points for a higher chart position (otherwise bands that had never charted, like say Abba, would be the best), then you subract a factor of 10 from that score for Welshness if you are not from Welshpool and add a factor of 10 if you are Welshist, then you listen to their records and decide whether any of them had the qualities to make them premierist soccer players. The one with the most soccr playing and bike riding in their videos is clearly the more talented and anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is clearly a THIEF AND A CHARLATAN.

You are good man, you have kind face. The face of a yogi. But the scientific way you talk is not the complete way to spiritual contentment and wisdom. More important it cannot tell us whether Manic Street Preacher band or Supergrass band are more at one with the divine. For this we have to accept the nothingness of both band and so they can become one with nature and become reincarnated as The Fratellis.

Hi! We are the Fratellis. Whilst we have nothing to contribute to the Manics v Supergrass debate, fascinating though it is, we would like you to kindly refrain from involving us in the argument as we are fairly peace loving.

Hi, Jeffrey here, but you can just call me Jeff. Well, just call me! Mm, those Manic boys look awful tasty. I guess I could do the big guy at the front as a curry - a nice spicy one, the long stringy one in some sort of pot roast (possibly au gratin, maybe with some sort of ratatouille), and the little guy at the back I'll just keep for cutlets - nice with a bit of mint sauce, I'll bet. Now these Supergrass guys look awfully lean to me. Not much meat there, but I guess the brains could be done in some sort of soup with pasta and the rest could go in some burgers. Very disappointing. For that reason, ah vote Manics.

Hi. I'm Joe, and down there is my brother, Ned. We preach on the street. We are, actually, street preachers. We are also bi-polar, and sometimes if our medication isn't kicking in as it should, we become a little manic. During these times, we are actually manic street preachers. It makes us awfully cross that someone should seek to belittle our condition by making the Devils music out of our name. I would ask everyone involved in listening to the Manic Street Preachers to consider our very hurt feelings. Clearly, Supergrass are the only band that come out of this with an inch of moral fibre.

"Greetings, Peter Hitchens here and I'd like to add my two cents to this crass, obscene debate because I have an opinion on everything. I was once assaulted by the adolescent, angsty outpourings of these Welsh socialists at a friends dinner party when her teenage son rudely left his bedroom door open as I ventured to the bathroom. What a gross and unpleasant experience it was. All I could discern from the noise was something about motorcyles. Pitiful. Thankfully our more considerate, enlightened host was playing Ravel under the gazebo so the experience was mercifully brief but it still left a bad taste in my mouth that the vol au vonts couldn't quite remove. What was the name of the junkie cretin that killed himself? Richard Edwards? What a degenerate, disgusting human being he was - cutting himself in public - no doubt as some kind of pathetic 'artistic statement' conceived in the darkest recesses of his diseased, drug addled brain. The obvious effects of cannabis abuse no doubt. Rotten human being, good riddance to him. I know nothing of this Supergrass band because I don't listen to infantile rock or roll but my vote, in protest, goes to them."

In my lifetime I have murdered 21 human beings, I have committed thousands of burglaries, robberies, larcenies, arsons and last but not least I have committed sodomy on more than 1,000 male human beings. For all of these things I am not the least bit sorry. I have no conscience so that does not worry me. I don’t believe in man, God nor Devil. I hate the whole damned human race including myself. However I'm partial to a bit of pumping on my stereo.

Hi, I'm Mickie Most from New Faces. Neither band is as good as Patti Boulaye who got all 10's on the last ever episode. Better than that stuttering cunt, eh Simon? Wh-wh-wh-wh-whatever h-h-h-happened to h-h-h-him?

A dramatic development in the den. With a sudden influx of public figures, two-bit psychics, Scots rockers who have had their day, mass murderers and mute puppets crowding the den to bursting point, all offering their advice to Copehead, who left hours ago, I have decided I am going stark raving mad.

B-doing. B-doing. P'TING!

Hi, I'm Derren Brown, now I've never met you before have I? Well, because of your nervous laugh, I can instantly tell that you're a Manic Street Preachers fan, and you have Nicky Wire's face tattooed on your left thigh, am I right?

For all that, I can definitely state that Supergrass are categorically better...although it could be that I just want you to believe that. In the meantime, here's a card trick you'll like...not a lot...erm, hang on, I'm getting my catchphrases mixed up now...

Now then, now then, now then, goodness gracious! How's about that then? As it 'appens, guys and gals I've got a letter here from a mister Copehead of Wales asking me to fix it for him to make the Manic Street Preachers the bestest pop group in the world! Unfortunately, this is one Jim'll Fix It request that is impossible to fix as the Manic Street Preachers sound like a cat that's got its tail caught in a vice, so instead here they are, they're number one, they're top of the pops, they're ...

... Chicory Tip with Son Of My Father!

Don't forget - clunk, click every trip and let the train take the strain! Uh-uh uh-uh Uh!

So I shagged Kelly Marston's boyfriend down the alley behind the offy last Wednesday right after Coronation Street finished and then I went to the chipper for me tea and then I bumped into Kelly drinking a bottle of cider outside the paper shop with Kylie and she asked me if I liked the Manic Street Preachers and I said yeah but no but yeah but no yeah but no not really and then she asked me if I liked Supergrass and I said yeah but no but yeah but no yeah but no but yeah I love 'em and then I saw Britney and she said "how's your new baby?" and I said "I swapped it for a copy of I Should Coco."
