MAGAZINE ARCHIVE : MELODY MAKER – 17.5.2000

A toilet roll with parody song titles is this week’s cover image, as Melody Maker asks if the charts are going down the toilet.

Tommy Scott of Space reveals that he will sing on their new album in “his real voice”, after stating that he sang in character on the band’s previous albums.

The cover story gets four pages, with a panel of music fans, Melody Maker writers and Daphne and Celeste debating if the charts are crap.

There are two pages dedicated to the life of Ian Curtis from Joy Division, on the 20th anniversary of his death.

In concerts, Melody Maker paid a visit to see Bush supported by Muse and James supported by Coldplay.

In reviews, Toploader’s debut album gets an unfavorable two stars out of five.
