As I'm in the midst of my early 30s, it's safe to say I'm about the age the Manics were during the Know Your Enemy era.

I've noticed that now, all their Richey era stuff feels more like adorably cute, compared to how it felt when I was young, and then again when I was that age.

And, indeed, while I love their recent works a lot, the non single tracks of Know Your Enemy somehow feel closer to home than they used to.

I find it amusing how, when you reach the age of your favourite artists at the time they made the their particular works of art, things kind of start to... align? I don't know how to define it, but there's definitely a difference between the admiration you feel before reaching that age, the empathy of when you do reach the same age, and then the candid cuteness when you're past that age.

Could be one of the reasons why some art "never gets old". You loved it, you still do, and you will forever, BECAUSE you perceive it differently at each stage of your life, and every time it feels like a new discovery.

Very sad. They always seemed to have such a good rapport with her, particularly james as he'd often be a guest on her show.

Disk beginning to rotate, faster, becoming a sphere of paler gray. Expanding -

Inner eye opening to the stepped scarlet pyramid of the Eastern Seaboard Fission Authority burning beyond the green cubes of Mitsubishi Bank of America,
and high and very far away he saw the spiral arms of military systems, forever beyond his reach.
And somewhere he was laughing, in a white-painted loft, distant fingers caressing the deck, tears of release streaking his face.
