I saw her sitting on a toilet in an advert for 3 phones and is pretty much welded into head when thinking about the single from RIF...

As it's Christmas, time to revisit this one, and James bungling the second verse

Tonight I’ve gone through:

Resistance Is Futile (Japanese version)
Lifeblood (CD2 of the Japanese version)
Send Away The Tigers
Kenisis (the band who supported the Manics back in 2002) - both albums
God Save The Manics EP
Journal For Plague Lovers

Cold winter nights are brilliant.

GNR will be the first band to play at Tottenham’s new stadium next May. Pray for Nicky.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before but this reminds me of Locust Valley somewhat:

I'd say it's their best song that they don't like.

In fact, we should do a thread for a "Best Songs that the Manics don't like" playlist.

Do they not like 1985? I thought they (or at least Nicky) were fans.

Is there a complete list of songs that they've disowned anywhere?

I can definitely see why but “Regular John” is absolutely the better of the two songs.

Yes, I'd be interested to know why they don't like 1985.

I’ve had “Judge Yr’self” blasting away on repeat today. Didn’t even realise until this afternoon that it’s Edwards’ birthday!

Random Manics or Random Music thought? Listening to Who at a friend's house and fuck me! Dave Eringa really is a great producer! If the next Manics album sounds anything as good as this, then what do you know? Still ongoing!
