Or may be they have people that check this sort of thing as well? I don't know, it could be anything.

I like to think he'd come on the forum though....or at least an MSP representative.

I've been sad enough to watch Manics stuff I've already got on ebay to see if people pay more than I did . Nicky fucking loves lists and stuff, wouldn't put it past him. But nah, he's probably stalking us.

Hiya, Nicky see ya soon.

There was a rumour that Morrissey had people who went round the internet looking up stuff being written about him. "What are they saying today?" "They're still wondering whether or not you're gay." "Oh look, people arguing about the merits of vegetarianism over veganism and whether or not you wear real leather shoes or fake leather shoes." *collapses from tedium*

I think that Blackwood 86 footage may have brought him on here. I was kicking myself for not mentioning it when I met them in Dec, as it had just gone up, but then Nick mentioned it on Back to Blackwood.

Ive had acetates, vinyl stampers, test pressings over the years but in all that time had never seen one of these hand-made copies of which there may be as few as 20-30. It was more than I was hoping to pay, but to fund it all I have to do is sell 4 of my Dead Weather / Jacky White singles on ebay & I know which I'd rather have.

The set list is a nice bonus & I was wondering if the lyrics to Repeat were either Richey's or Nicky's (or even James'?). I'll have to try & compare the handwriting.

Once I've received everything I'll happily try & upload some scans onto this site if anyone's interested along with some nice bits of signed memorabilia that I've got.

I'm lucky that in these hard times I'm in a position to waste money on something as stupid as 'pop memorabilia', but there you go - it's probably cheaper than a drug habit!
Congratulations, you lucky....thing Now, if you'd kindly leave your collection to me in your will, I'd be much obliged
Oh, and I'd love to see some more scans!

Well done! If you are able to scan the photos that'd be great. I'd love to see the photos from the Horse & Groom gig.

I was in a record shop a couple of weeks ago discussing the Manics with the owner, he said that there's no value in there stuff anymore and that you could probably pick up a copy of 'Suicide Alley' for 20. I will be checking his shop on a weekly basis, although how he'll obtain such a bargain is beyond me! The possibilty that he has absolutely no idea what he's on about hasn't escaped me!

This is great!
Thanks contributors...all very interesting stuff.
And...to have the actual buyer contribute too...that's a bonus! Please, please, please do share some of your other interesting Manic Street Preachers stuff with us, that'd be brilliant!

I love this site.....keep it real everyone!
See you all in Wolverhampton in May (down the front!)

If you're talking about a shop in Norwich, then I had a very similar discussion with a record store owner a few years ago when I picked up a few vinyls.
