I have to say I like it, its diffe ...

I just read a well written review of the new album in Vive Le Rock in which the writer gave it 8 out of 10. And, Classic Pop magazine went even further and gave the new album 5 out of 5!

Do you think that the title 'Encore' is telling us that this is the end?

Tour on the back of the new album then call it a day maybe?

Another myth around Lucozade was the slogan 'Lucozade - Aids Recovery'.

I think they stopped using that in the mid eighties.

Imani - a link between Terry Hall, Blur and Lucozade - Pop (music)?

I assume that the live album will be performed by the current line up?
