Sorry if this has been mentioned elsewhere but the band make an unlikely appearance in the latest David Squires cartoon in The Guardian! If you follow football, these cartoons are always worth a look:

The Paul Robinson sequence is fucking sublime.

As for the bit with the Manics, why do James and Sean have the same face?!

Is Andrew Trendell someone on this forum, he seems to write 80% manics-related articles/lists that appear on the web these days.

EMG listed at #32 in Pitchfork's 50 Best Britpop albums published today: look closely and you may also spot a Julian Opie-esque cartoon of James amongst the Sgt Pepper's montage top of the first page.

If this seems large, I almost posted it in the Manics TV And Radio thread!

Interview with Rachel Edwards on pages 10 and 11 of today's Daily Mirror.
Apologies for not having a scanner!









Bugger. Those are massive.

"Manics Monster Reanimated"

The Manic Street Preachers are a band of many landmarks.
The arrogantly over-arching debut double album.
Their brutal masterpiece of malevolence The Holy Bible.
Everything Must Go their elegant monument to lost guitarist Richey Edwards.
And actually, as it happens, 2007's Send Away The Tigers, a record that ushered in a latter-era purple period.
After straying away too far into Blandsville in white trousers on This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours in 1998 and struggling to correct their course punkward on two subsequent albums, Send Away... was a welcome re-staking of their claim as Britain's foremost canyon rock politicos.
Brisk, boasting balls of titanium and heralded with the impossibly sparkling glam blast of Your Love Alone Is Not Enough - a song so shiny it was automatically required to feature The Cardigan's Nina Persson - this was the Manics' most solid collection of board-stomping guitar anthems since Everything Must Go.
Such is their bombastic confidence here that string-battered tracks like The Second Great Depression and Autumnsong sound like they've scooped the entire Barbican complex out of the earth and plonked it in the studio, Rendition attacks mass governmental kidnap in the style of a 10-ton T Rex and Lee Harvey Oswald 'tribute' I'm Just A Patsy hits like a single bullet from three different angles.
A decade on and replete with full album demos (check the Beatle-y acoustic Your Love Alone...), B-sides and their punk Morricone take on John Lennon's Working Class Hero, it's a joy to be savaged once more.

8/10 review by Mark Beaumont (Classic Rock magazine #236 June 2017)
