Originally called Manson and named after Charles Manson. When they signed to Parlophone, they were asked to change their name, so they substituted the "O" for a "U" and one of the stories they put out was that they were named after the Verve song "A Man Called Sun"

Mansun were formed in 1995 by Paul Draper, Dominic Chad and Stove King. Their debut album 'Attack Of The Grey Lantern' charted at #1 on its week of release; with 1998s' follow-up album 'Six' charting at #6. The third full-length 'Little Kix' didn't sell as well and the band disappeared into obscurity for a short while. In 2002, the band announced a small tour of the UK to test out new material destined for their fourth studio album. However the fourth album was never released and in May 2003, an announcement was made by Dominic Chad that the band were calling it a day due to "artistic differences".

Fans petitioned Parlophone records to release the fourth album and in 2004 Parlophone released 'Kleptomania', a 3xCD set of unreleased recordings, home demos and live material. This was later followed up by a 'Best Of...' album in 2006.
