More Info:

Originally released in February 1997, the Platinum selling 'Attack Of The Grey Lantern' debuted at Number 1 in the UK album chart & included the hit singles 'Wide Open Space', 'She Makes My Nose Bleed', 'Taxloss' & 'Stripper Vicar'. Mansun were one of the most iconic & innovative British bands of the late 90's. They released four classic albums - 'Attack of the Grey Lantern' (1997), 'Six' (1998), 'Little Kix' (2000) & the compilation 'Kleptomania' (2004). As Draper puts it "The Grey Lantern is like a comic-book hero - the album is about this village of people with really disgusting morals & the Grey Lantern sorts them out. I suppose the Grey Lantern's me. I wouldn't have a cape, but there are definitely characters on the record - Albert Taxloss, Chad, Dark Mavis. At the end of the album, it all gets resolved & you find Mavis is actually the Stripper Vicar."
