Help required - JDB's top 10 bars/pubs

Several years ago on the official Manics site under the lists section there was James' top 10 bars/pubs. One of these was in New York. Can anyone remember what this was, or by any chance still have the whole list saved anywhere? I think it was on the site around 2000/Know Your Enemy time.

I'm heading to New York in February, and bollocks to the usual tourist traps, I want to see what Bradders calls a good bar.

If they're anything as good as the cafes he recommended in Cardiff, I'd like to know too!

i would think they liked the Bush Ranger in Shepherds Bush, it is where they signed thier Heavenly Records contract, and a few doors down in 47 Askew Road they wrote Little Baby Nothing.
