As these things so often do.  This one was one of those “on this day in…” tweets, claiming that Primal Scream’s opus, Screamadelica was released on 23rd September, 27 years ago.  Once I’d got past the strangeness of celebrating something’s 27th anniversary, I focussed in on the obvious error, surely such a landmark album couldn’t have been released in such a sh*t year?  Surely it came out the year before?

The Pie at Night returns for Episode 31 of our podcast where we bring you the second half of our transfer deadline day special, and there’s another round of our new “10 questions” round.

We look at our new signings and look at what we think their alternative jobs might be, with no stereotyping whatsoever of part-time window cleaner Gary Roberts…whoops..and there’s lots of love for Reece James. Well, sort of anyway.

With apologies to the TPAN continuity editor, here’s a piece that first appeared in the May 2016 issue of the Mudhuts Football Express when it was indeed the end of the football season…

Yes, the football season is still going on and Latics are doing their usual thing of keeping it interesting to the bitter end (can we get our request in for a relatively quiet, boring, fair-to-midtabling season next year now) but time waits for no man.
