    Ian Brown too. He's from Altrincham and went to Altrincham Grammar but speaks like nobody else I know from Altrincham, which is considered fairly posh. Same goes for anybody famous from Bolton. Every one of them lays on the accent and the daft northener routine.

    I suppose people just dislike it when they know it's phoney.

    Yes you are bang on there. Ive done my tour of North and South Manchester and there are a lot of people egging it up to try and sound cool.

    Ive always hated that thing with accents where people follow the crowd to be more Madchester than the next bod. I hate all that mad for it and our kid. Maybe I just dont like the Manchester accent or Im just a Cheshire mommies boy

    If that Nigel Kennedy thing is true and I think it is.....its a mockney joke.

    Dido always used to wind me up with her ‘Estuary’ accent.

    I remain convinced that someone whose full name is ‘Dido Florian Cloud de Bounevialle O'Malley Armstrong’ does not speak like she did without adding an affectation.

    What Nigel Kennedy thing?

    I also find the whole Madchester thing really tedious. It tends to be people from the suburban towns who aren't even Mancunians anyway - especially City fans.

    I like Danny Dyer and the Gallagher brothers and Madchester (although that is going back a bit now). At least the Gallaghers were proper rock stars not well-behaved 'role models'. Nothing worse than a rock star setting a good example. Makes me sick.

    And Dyer did that 'Hard Men' documentary - one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

    Danny Dyer? Who he? Never heard of him.

    (Don't bother answering - I'm sure it's not important.)
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    That Nigel is putting on an accent to sound cool and down with it. That and the spiky hair used to wind me up big time....he can certainly play though and theres no denying that.

    I reckon that Danny Dyer speaks like Noel Coward when he's at home. As soon as his agent phones him up for the next football film its all apples, pairs and geezers. Hard man my arse!
