The curious question about Swansea University's vice-chancellor hoofing down to the Manics gig to present Nicky with a lifelong honorary fellowship is why there? Normally, these sorts of things are given as part of the university's degree ceremonies, aren't they?

Perhaps the V-C was worried Wire would misinterpret the instruction to wear a gown.

While we're on the Manics, we always enjoy it when Steve Lamacq trots out the "I was interviewing Richey at the Norwich Arts Centre, when he started to carve 4Real into his arm..." story, so we were especially delighted when he even managed to work it into his Guardian quiz yesterday.
