Shaun Ryder: Amateur Night In The Big Top

Jon Wilde, Uncut, August 2003

SHAUN RYDER'S weird artistic odyssey now appears to be forming some kind of pattern. Each new venture hits the ground running and burning with revolutionary intent, delivering words and music of mangled-up, category-defying magnificence (Happy Mondays' Bummed and Pills'nThrills and Bellyaches, Black Grape's It's Great When You're Straight... Yeah).

Total word count of piece: 666
