Paul Draper revisits classic Mansun debut

Spooky Action is the result of a decade of thinking, tinkering, writing, recording and focusing. The album is out now and tickets for his upcoming tour are also on sale now.

Originally released in February ’97, Attack of the Grey Lantern reached No 1 in the UK album charts shortly afterwards, propelled by a run of huge singles (including Wide Open Space,Stripper Vicar and Taxloss) and a fervent live following. It was with that following in mind that Paul set up an online poll to see whether people would be interested in hearing the Mansun back catalogue performed live by Paul and his current band. After an overwhelming response that produced support in roughly equal measure for AOTGL and its follow up Six, Paul decided that he would visit the records sequentially, promising dates performing Six later in 2018.
