Manics on twitter and Random Manics Thoughts are probably two most popular threads on FD I've ever created

I miss 90s bootlegs. I've got a few nicely packaged decent recordings of Manics ones. I haven't got a printer or any software, I'd probably have a stab myself if I did, but it's a bit of a shame to have copies of decent quality bootleg recordings with a crap inlay of MS Paint on recycled paper and the title written in black marker on the cd..

Ah well. Listening to one of my shitter packaged ones now. Copenhagen 98. The recording's missing Motorcycle Emptiness and Tsunami, so brillianty the cd has a sequence of Motown Junk, SYMM, You Love Us. I'd love to see that!

Just thought I'd check the Manics wiki, it's been a while.

Few bits with [citation needed] and thinking, what reaaaaally?

Quote:
The band was formed in 1986 in Oakdale Comprehensive School, Blackwood, South Wales.[citation needed]
Quote:
In late 2005, both Bradfield and Wire announced that they intended to release solo material prior to a new album by the band.[citation needed]
Quote:
The band released an EP entitled God Save the Manics with only a limited number of copies available and given out to fans as they arrived at the venue. After all the copies were gone, the band made the EP available as a free download on their website.[citation needed]
I dunno, I'm just failing to see the doubt there.

I remember the God Save the Manics thing, but I didn't know about what's said in the first part of the sentence. But maybe it's just me.

Yeah, it was mainly given away at the Hammersmith gigs and leftovers were posted out on a first come first served basis but I didn't get that email so ended up panic buying one off ebay for £30 a couple of weeks later..


Finally listening to Commemoration And Amnesia. Bought this probably a decade ago and it's been gathering dust since then. Eh, not bad, can really tell it's James on his tracks. Wouldn't mind hearing the music from those turned into Manics tracks.

Yeah, wasn't there people grabbing loads? I remember a couple of years ago seeing someone who had about 100 (not even exaggerating) putting em on ebay but they were all about £3 each buy it now so that wasn't so bad.
