Support...

Has anyone seen a good Manics support act yet?

Public Broadcasting Shite, Ian Brown, Elbow, and six others I've seen that I can't even remember the name of.

Not one has been good.

Is it a ploy to enable the band to walk onstage to a half-enraged half-relieved audience?

I've enjoyed Delays and British Sea Power, and whilst technically not a support act at Festival Number 6, Nile Rogers and Chic should just be warm up for every gig ever

Public Service Broadcasting - AMAZING.
Joy Formidable - AMAZING.
British Sea Power - AMAZING.
Delays - Lovely.
Cherry Ghost - lyrically interesting.

So... yes. Quite a few. Though you have to struggle through a fair amount of crap inbetween.

I liked The Answering Machine

Weren't Muse an MSP support act? They've done all right.

Embrace were the other support on the day and were just painfully fucking awful: the worst live vocals you're ever going to hear combined with a band that were desperate to be Oasis = aural agony.

I remember seeing the then completely unknown Stereophonics supporting in '96 too and, despite liking a few of their tunes, generally found them really dull. Not much has changed there then!
