Saturday Video

Had I not had friends in the UK at the time Mansun appeared on the scene, I likely would have never run across this group. They produced one quality album, Attack of the Grey Lantern, from which comes this single, "Wide Open Spaces", were a brief sensation in Britain lasting for a year or two, then released two more full lengths of deceasing quality before they ultimately disbanded.

They were total unknowns outside of their homeland and made no impact whatsoever in America. Mansun in their heyday did, however, provide an excellent example of late-period Britpop.
