I mentioned this in the KYE anniversary thread but I'll mention it here too: KYE really does have the most beautiful and least dated design aesthetic of any of the album covers and interiors and eras*.

*With the obvious exceptions of THB and perhaps EMG.

The most dated is obviously GT.

I love the simpleness of the EMG and KYE designs

Manics with the Welsh Football Team today (please let this mean they've recorded the official Euro 2016 song)

Then again, JFPL does do that.
I've worked it out...
The picture was taken 18 minutes in, and I started the album just as I crossed the start line...

I was somewhere in the midst of "Facing Page: Top Left"

It could be a look at American bands only in Cuba, but this list from Rolling Stone about acts that played Cuba doesn't mention that band from Wales that played a gig there.
And yet they mention "The Dead Daisies" whoeverthefuckthey'resupposedtobe!

That's it. If it's not preferred in the USA, then it's forgotten from history...
I can immagine a couple centuries later, the Manics will be, just like Tesla, "the greatest forgotten Brittish rock band in history"...

I'm watching Sky News online and they keep saying the Stones are the first British band to ever play in Cuba. They talk like it's something that's never happened before. It's so annoying I'm this close to emailing Sky and correcting them but I guess it would be fruitless...

Brilliant. Never thought of it like that.

I haven't been on FD in a while, but this is exactly the reason I logged on today! Pretty sure the Beeb have let that phrase slip out once or twice too. Sad times.

Surprising when its been brought up on newsfeeds about the Cuba gig how many people have never heard of the Manics. The never been very well known even when popular. Remember all through the 90's having to go to gigs alone as work mates didn't know them, during the EMG/TIMT era you would get a few more but it died out after that

The Cuba thing to me sounds like a classic case of modern reporting. Of course, I would always side with the Manics especially given that last night the twitter of this forum uncovered a vested interest from the reporter on ITV news, a massive Stones fan would you believe!?

But as I say, sensationalism is the only way to go now. They could have easily tweaked what they wrote to something like:

Rolling Stones play enormous gig in Cuba to 40k people...

But of course that doesn't fit the mould of modern reporting that seems to need almost everything to be a historic and seismic event. It would get less retweets and all the rest of it. And it doesn't fit the narrative of those Stones fans who so desperately want the show to be something cool they can talk about down the pub. So this becomes:

Rolling Stones become first major band to play Cuba in historic gig...

Overall, it's just a reflection of the modern media I suspect. To prove the point, Tom Morello claimed the same thing as the Stones.

As a journalist... it's lazy reporting and trying to make something sound sexier than it is.

Someone will have thought "oooh, maybe this might be the first gig by a major western band in Cuba..." and then not bothered to properly research it before writing it.
