Know Your Enemy is 18 years old today

Know your Enemy was released on 19th March 2001.

My Manics fandom was at its height here. I loved the idea [emphasis on idea] of the Cuba visit. I loved Found That Soul on CD:UK. I loved the acoustic version of Intravenous Agnostic. I loved the song's guitar solo on the official website.

I still listen to KYE every so often. I LOVE the second half of the album. Dead Martyrs, My Guernica, His Last Painting, The Convalescent, Epicentre, Freedom of Speech, and Baby Elian are all low-fi, dirty, scratchy, half-arsed magnificence.

Some of the b-sides around this time were fantastic as well. Groundhog Days being my personal favourite.

They did get a bit fat around this period. And they should have done two albums instead of one. And the Cuba thing was a bit shit. But still, this was a good time in my Manics fandom.
