I perfectly get your excitement. As a European living in Korea, a truly big culrure shock was that there's not even Tolerate in the karaoke and the realization that the Manics are really not so well-known here.
And then... One day I heard Anthem for a Lost Cause at a coffee shop.
Oh... The emotions....♥

'Missing Persons Choir' who sang on Britains Got Talentless showed Richeys face as one of the missing.

Last night I watched bbc4 Music for Misfits and The Manics were on. It showed their first gig in Sept 89 in London showing Motown Junk, Stay Beautiful,YLU. I'm sure it's on video, but it was nice to watch on TV. Richey says they just want to mix politics and sex and look brilliant on stange and say brilliant things

On The One Show just now they were showing football fans in Cardiff for the Champions League final around the city. They played instrumental versions of Show Me The Wonder, Cardiff Afterlife and This Is The Day.

Heard Tolerate (yet again) in a shop the other day.

With no statistical basis whatsoever I would venture that 99 per cent of all Manics songs I have heard played in shops are Tolerate.

And ... if we don't start objecting about that statistic, all our respective offspring will find the same thing will happen for them.

Kevin Carter was part of Radcliffe and Maconie Teatime Theme Time.
The answer was ZX Spectrum games.
Because Kevin Carter equals Manic Miner.
That had me going what?!! Was the Miner called Kevin or Carter?
Oh! Saw it typed up. MANIC Miner. Ahh! Get it now!

On the plus side, a couple of decent remixes will be made of it.

Absolute 90s played Faster about 20 minutes ago as part of the 90s Chartshow. It was number 30.
