Trawling the message boards today looking for news of off licence opening hours in Whalley Range and the whereabouts of Badly Drawn Boy, news reaches us that Neo-Chorlton is exploding.

The popular Chorlton Web message board was at the epicentre of the epic kick off; the ruckus being brought over who is "best", Frank Zappa or The Fall.

The poster known only as The Camp Tramp is going round to see his mate (aka The Sarge) tomorrow afternoon with several cans of Inca Gold - Beer Of The Aztec Kings and a home burned CDr with 12 songs by Smith and co. which he hopes will settle the argument.

Now, as we all know, the answer is clearly that The Fall are better but in order to ensure that swift and decisive justice is served up against the cultural imperialists with their soulless jazz rock and misogynist irony, please help The Camp Tramp by twittering suggestions for his Fall playlist to our account with the hash tag #FallVZappa.
