(Contains swearing and brief nudity*)

*Not really. Well, no nudity, anyway

Neil Hannon has a lot to answer for. After all, this is the man who in 2002 ditched his entire band, and whose last gigs in the UK were an ignorant shrug in the face of their fans. And the sound of such caddishness... is brilliant!

Records as Hannon and the immaculate sounds of Joby Talbot, 'Absent Friends' benefits a thousand-fold from the artistic freedom provided by Hannon's solo status. Clearly indebted to Scott Walker, it is stately, intelligent and deeply moving.

Sod band solidarity, democracy and all that s**t. We need more people who are willing to ** everyone over in their path towards their vision. On this evidence it's darn worth it

That edition (with Gomez on the cover) has one of my photos in it- the one of Gorkys in one of the preview bits. and this month's edition (which still hasn't arrived here yet, damn postal strike) has one of my Snow Patrol photos in it.

there's also a page advert for absent friends two, with two music review quotes. apart from the mojo quote seems dumb, as all it says is 'a classy album' which just seems weird. and a list of all shops that it can be bought from is at the bottom too, in case it's hard to find
