I can't believe it has been completely dropped from 6 Music. Not even demoted. Just dropped.

Riverman, Dead Inside and Soubour are all still on there, and they were premiered even before Lonesome Street.

Completely bizarre.

The melting Mr OK made me think that there should be mock single covers for each song with Mr OK in different forms, like him in outer space for Spaceman or in a club for Mirrorball.

Anyone else think Ong Ong sounds like a fantastic piss-take?

Don't get me wrong, i really, really like the track, but to my ears it's a mockery of a type of blur song they used to do some time in the mid 90'ies :)

What's the problem with Ong Ong? It's a nice, chill, feel-good song. Nothing wrong with that. People take it too seriously.
