Suddenly remembering about the sparkly mannequins and dog (that looked like a rat) that graced the Manics stage set around the early 2010s

What the fuck was that about?

I think someone said Nicky's dog had died recently
He picked it up after one gig and walked off stage with it ... I did find that a bit weird at the time but didn't know about the dog.
No idea on the reasoning for the others tho. Quite liked the sparkles. Was this the last tour with the feather boas on the mic stand ?

Didn't he kill Denise, the mannequin at the end of the tour by pushing her off the speakers?
(I only know she was called Denise because that was the name coined by this forum)

Something like that yes, think they’re embracing the online thing a bit more this year, ironically

RSD records are going on sale online at 6pm on Saturday. The stores are not allowed to sell them online before that time.

Cememonial Rape Machine

Seeing that video of a small but vocal group of people at the gates of buck-house shouting after andy means another play of We Her Majesty's Prisoners. Shame I'll probably be linking to a doctored or historic video.

We Her Majesty's Prisoners is a banging choon. I accept I'm venturing into dodgy territory with that link. apols

For some reason, when I'm in a p*ssed off mood I often end up singing an angry version of There By The Grace of God, despite the fact it is actually one of the least angry Manics songs. I'd love to see it tried out in a more rocking style sometime.
