Richard Nixon? Or something as wanky please. Though in shitty moods I've found myself identifying with it. the bridge/chorus.

There is nothing, but nothing that the band have recorded that make me want to take a hammer to my stereo like Kevin sodding Carter does, I think that the Manics themselves are so convinced (utterly wrongly) of its total brilliance, only offends me more.

It's not gimmicky in my opinion, it's quite natural. The lyrics are certainly better than Elvis, TGWWTBG, Further Away. Musically it is a highlight of EMG, you make no sense about it doing nothing new musically- if you're talking in MSP terms, it does. If you're talking in general terms, the whole album does nothing new musically.

I also think Kevin Carter is awful...musically. Lyrically it's alright. I simply cannot see what everyone else sees in it. Ah well, to each their own
