"repeat after me, fuck queen and country!!!"

Looks like the Manics like neither Queen, nor country music.

No matter how many times I've listened to La Tristesse Durera it's always like the first time ever. Fascinating guitar solo uplifting melody and tragic lyrics make it memorable. This song will never get old. No wonder, GATS is my album of forever.

Certainly one of the best difficult second albums ever.

Made myself a Manics tee through one of those shirt printing sites. I chose that font because it blends well with those ubiquitous "Miami 1982"-type shirts.

Agree, and same question! I've always wanted to get something with a custom logo/slogan but have never heard a recommendation about one that's good quality.

MSP made my 2-year old cry

My son loves clocks.
Today he wanted to watch a video of a clock, while his Daddy wanted him to watch something musical. So I put Everything Must Go on on the iPad after remembering that the video has a giant clock in it.
He watched the clock, but then got bored of it, so I skipped towards the end, thinking he might find it entertaining to see the girl smash the clock with a bass guitar...
Oh my god, my boy was inconsolable. Even when I skipped back and showed him the clock whole again. He cried for a solid 20 minutes, screamed if he saw the iPad and wouldn't let go of his Mummy.
I feel bad.
Naughty Manic Street Preachers!

Ha! He'll be reliving that traumatic experience in 20 years on a psychiatrist's couch :-P

I fell asleep, but were the Manics on Absolute radio tonight or tomorrow? Or not for a while?

it would be such a shame if they didn't choose roundhouse to play during EMG 20 Anniversary Tour, considering ADFL video history.

I've been wondering for a while; why was Life Becoming A Landslide classed as an "e.p."? It was released just the same as all the other singles on the album, same amount of b-sides, formats, music video etc...

New Art Riot is an e.p. but it actually has more of a feel as a mini album rather then a single. I never really saw the actual song as an A-side, just really the title track.

At that point it was quite rare for them to have a single release with three previously unreleased studio tracks as b-sides. It would have been even rarer if Roses hadn't got there first one release earlier.

As I recall it - and I may be wrong - CD singles typically had four tracks on them, presumably as an incentive to buy the format over cassette and vinyl (which had as few as two each, hence a-side and b-side).

To digress, given my interest in b-sides and remixes, I've considered how expectations of what a single must contain increased exponentially from the early 1990s on.

It worked, but it meant the artist/record company had to produce a lot more 'previously unreleased' tracks (thus the sticker on every Manics CD single release) and this led to the inclusion of remixes, live tracks, 'versions' and, later on, the digging up of old discarded tracks. A single with exclusive tracks in each format including two CDs could end up with as many as eight 'previously unreleased tracks', so it was a lot.

Ironically, digital downloads have lessened this pressure and b-sides, remixes and the like are no longer necessary - they're just as likely to be given away as free downloads and 'website exclusives' now.
