1) The band have been rehearsing THB and when we actually get to the gigs we'll get the whole thing

2) There'll be some kind of announcement that will serprise everyone

3) Sean'll be in leopard print, James in a dress and Nick in camo gear and Holy Bible make-up

Being an immigrant to Canada, I struggled to find friends who ever heard of Manics.
I started persuading one friend to pay attention to Manics (he is a fan of Neil Young, Pink Floyd and John Lennon)
I gave him different compilations only with limited success.
Recently, I gave him RTF and somehow he LOVED it. I guess it is our age that bring connection to the lyrics.

One night, they had a little party for ~30 people and lot of them are musicians. They had a little stage in living room,
where they sang and played some songs.
Suddenly, my friend said: This is just for my friend … who likes Manic Street Preachers.
He played guitar and sung The Sullen Welsh Heart and his wife followed with voice and on keyboards.
It was so much fun. (That is all. )

I doubt it. I reckon, what with this video being made, they'll still be looking to release it normally. Just seems like the Manics thing to do. Plus most people seem to think it's getting a May release date. As soon as the tour starts we'll undoubtedly know more about the situation though (i.e. whether they actually play any new songs at all in the set ).

I've been told by quite a solid source who provided a lot of pre-release info for RTF that the first "single" will be played on radio in the next fortnight.

Well from the twitchy nightmare flashbacks I have of Low Budget Film Making (And after all that hype my computer crashed and lost all the footage!!), it won't take that long to render the finished product. I can't see the video being over 5 minutes long. The editing might have been finished over the weekend.
Or, maybe the video still hasn't been completed?

I wonder if anyone else saw all the similarities and parallels between SONY label mates Green Day and the Manic Street Preachers. I remember reading about how the manics were listeining to springsteen then green day was. manics have an album called know your enemy, guess what, gd had a song titled that. they also made a cover of working class hero. someone somewhere tried to make a manics clone in the form of green day. look it up its all true lol

i truly believe that sony tried to play the green day trio off the manics trio, it was obvious and egregious

It was a hot and joyous day of early spring. Cherry blossoms all over the river banks and a sky so clear, no trace of a cloud. And as I was riding my bicycle while listening to various Manics' b-sides randomly, there it goes - Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head. So perfectly fitting the weather. Hey, did my phone made a sort of an April Fish to me or something? It was good anyway.
